The Ursine Mafia

I fully expected this kind of thing, but not nearly this soon:


This sort of thing seriously nauseates me. Those who do crimes on the LONG side (say, for instance, the founders of WeWork) are still heralded as heroes. I mean, hell, the founder of Nikola was practically carted off in chains, and it’s still a public company! Elizabeth Holmes was the rare exception to a bullish criminal getting in trouble (umm, although she’s still free as a bird, enjoying life on a huge estate; who knows if they’ll ever send her to the pokey).

But let the market slip a few percent, and suddenly it’s the big bad BEARS that are the cause of all life’s troubles. One of a million people is a true bear. And the rest of the people despise them. Just wait until this stupid market is down 50%. I’ll probably be blogging from prison. Just watch.
