Defunding the police isn’t radical, it’s real.

Retweeted by Laurie Voss @erin_hemenway That's a good bet. @keithkurson @DaleJStephens Literally less than zero, index funds consistently do better, hedge funds are a weird anachronism. @tylerscruggs @keithkurson This is both the correct answer and also a summary of what hedge funds do. @DaleJStephens @keithkurson It's not a hedge fund tho.The Simpsons doesn't predict anything we just haven't fixed any of America's problems since 1989.

Wall Street crying out for regulation would be novel. @rohit_x_ Blockbuster's stock is also up 700% even though it is bankrupt: somewhere is liquidating their hugely profitable Bitcoin position to get into GameStop and truly, we live in an age of wonders. @amxn So is it a value investment or is it a short squeeze? @JDorsey33 What about revenge is a rational motive? @amxn @madg04t Amazon owns thousands of physical stores. @alvaro_montoro This is the test case. Soon Reddit will realize they can wreck any company and they will. @amxn My friend you have been horribly misled. @seldo Hahaha everyone loves "creative destruction" until they're the one being creatively destroyed

Retweeted by Laurie Voss @MxMippy Not bad, not bad. @idangazit The former. @LittleMxSurly Ooooh @foxxtrot Authors keeping fucking up my plans to steal their ideas.Best suggestion so far is "favorite animal" followed by "daemon". @beka_valentine @SchmiegSophie This is gonna be like when I found out 20% of my followers believe I'm trans @oliviacpu I hear those are really dark?I hate to break it to those suggesting "fursona" but that word already has a VERY SPECIFIC meaning not at all what I have in mind. @CrashandCern This is legit the best suggestion so far? @theleoji @H4N4W4LT The suits are so expensive @something_void What is this, Tumblr in 2009? @SchmiegSophie That's definitely going to lead to awkward misunderstandings involving furries."Spirit animal" is cultural appropriation and "patronus" is transphobic now so what do I call an animal with whom I strongly identify? @Belko99 @terronk What?

If idiots are going to jack up the price of your stock you may as well cash in. Works for Tesla.
