You know this, but once it's public anyone can be a buyer. All it takes is a brokerage account.  So all the 'regular Joes' who bought in on day one to be part of the donald's new media empire have now lost 2/3rds of their money.

26. Wow. He has to hold above 17.5 or he risks his bonus shares (probably, of course they have moved to sell shares early, so they will probably just go ahead with the bonus/shareholder dilution anyway). 

I didn't track what the premium was on the puts at day one, but it was really expensive. Now I'm wondering if they would have been in the money?

I figure that anyone who invested in that IPO is used to being a loser.

Does anyone else wonder if some of Kurtster's responses are being auto-generated by AI? But not good AI... some kind of half-assed IA that Trump might have had a hand in starting and they're still working the bugs out in.

He was just upset at the 2-tiered justice system.  

Nobody who won the Heisman has ever been convicted of conspiracy and kidnapping.  There are 2 judicial systems, and the elites eventually got their man.

The only party I've ever been affiliated with is the Republican Party.  I no longer have a party.

Meanwhile...you just prove my point.  You ignore the White House's condemnation of the chanting.  Change the subject.   Add a bullet point.  Go on the offensive. Ignore common sense.

You're not thinking anymore Kurt, you're just reacting.

Based on this it is obvious to me that you really don't take me seriously on much of anything I have to say anymore.  Not that anyone else does either so you're in good company.

That you take Pelosi seriously on much of anything impedes my taking you seriously in discussions like this going forward.  Actually there is no way to have a discussion on this stuff anymore, at all.  Everyone's mind is already made up.  It's Joe (Kamala) or the Cheetos Bandito.  Nothing left to do but wait.

Oh well.  :popcorn:

Kurt, I take you very seriously.

You are a serious threat to yourself, me, and the rest of America.  

As usual, you respond to a question/statement about Trump with a deflection (you take Nancy seriously) to avoid addressing the overwhelming information that Trump supports Putin.  Just in case that doesn't work, you throw in an "I've said this before", "nobody listens",  "Everyone is against me", and/or "I'm out".   

Yes, you're really that transparent.  But still a threat.

This is not about Pelosi. She was just a convenient example from today's news. No, Kurtster, the charge is much more serious than any kind of party-political feuding. It WAY SURPASSES the normal political feuding which is an essential element of a healthy democracy. 

Here, I will spell it out for you:


"Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court."

Argument:
By holding up aid for Ukraine, Trump is adhering to the goals and objectives of Russia. He is also giving them aid and comfort by facilitating their illegal annexation of a democratic regime and their attempt to destabilise other European democracies in an attempt to reassert Russian hegemony over Eastern Europe.

(as a side note: If Russia succeeds at its goals this will necessarily diminish the U.S. sphere of influence in the world, destabilise other regions where dictatorships perceive U.S. weakness and greatly damage U.S. standing in the world)

Exhibits
Putin's geopolitical objectives
The FSB playbook for destabilising and infiltrating other countries and regimes
The invasion of Ukraine
Russia's complete disregard for the rules of war and relentless attacks on civilians
The fact that Russia is a dictatorship with sham elections and a ruler for life
(none of the above is consistent with the ideals of the U.S. i.e. there is no overlap or wiggle room where you could argue that by supporting Russia, one could also be supporting U.S. interests. There is none. They are mutually incompatible.)
Conclusion: Russia is demonstrably an enemy of U.S. interests and ideals.

Trump's statements on Russia
Trump's proclamation to turn his back on NATO
Trump's use of FSB material for his own political gain
Trump's obvious disregard for due procedure and election results
Congress withholding military aid to Ukraine due to the speaker not bringing the matter to a vote (at Trump's instruction/threat of vacating the seat)
Conclusion: Trump is adhering to an Enemy of the U.S., and giving it Aid and Comfort

Witness statements:
Statements by top US military personnel and ex US ambassadors to Russia
Statements by the FBI that Russia is attacking the US already today (see FSB playbook)
Indictments brought against Trump in U.S. courts
Statements by Republican Party members incriminating Trump

etc. etc.

Need any more?
