Trump had 4 years and didn't do jack shit about school costs and the college tuition and loan racket. - @MentORPHEUS
That wasn't on his radar.
You're unfortunately mistaken to go on believing he was a man of principles,
He has the principle America First, and that's good enough for me. I've never seen anyone else at that level come close to putting anything ahead of their own power.
I know nothing either. Guess I need to read a book or two. My take is that r / wallstreetbets organized together to short sell 1 particular stock (gamestop). They collectively bought stock which made the price increase. Now that the price is high they want to sell and cash out for a profit leaving the high priced stock in someone else's hands when it crashes back to nothing. All standard practice but the asshats on wallstreet are trying to prevent the sell off (changing the rules) since it doesn't benefit them and they will be the ones left holding the worthless paper.
I'm hearing news that multiple brokers are preventing sell orders as well as buying $GME.
Wallstreetbets was just playing by the rules. Looks like the powers are changing the rules. - @redpillschool
At the risk of sounding like I'm even older and even more out of touch than I really am, what on earth are those two paragraphs about?
@redpillschool Brokers can't keep up with large market movements sometimes because brokers don't actually have your money or your stock.
They take the money they're holding and lend it out to margin traders and take the stock they're holding and lend it out to short traders to get themselves some extra income.
Then, when there's a huge market event and suddenly everyone wants to buy or sell something, they can't accommodate all of the orders because they don't actually have the money or stock.
We live in a hyper reality.
Meaning society is a hyper reality.
The inability of consciousness to distinguish reality from a simulation of reality, especially in technologically advanced postmodern societies
In "ougga bugga days" if you walked 10 miles you'd run into a gorilla or a lion read to eat your head off.
Now, you can go for a walk while listing to operas new audio book.
This is why I do not take what people tell me too seriously.
They are all slaves to the hive mind.
Too many men fight nature.
Few men abide with nature.

I'd rather chat with him then any president in U.S history.
