Shemp is conveniently omitting the key fact that the WHO officially changed the criteria for what constitutes a positive COVID test on the day Biden took office.

Oh my. Nice chart.

Instead of PETA, say rabbit stew.

@peta

Words can create a more inclusive world, or perpetuate oppression.

Calling someone an animal as an insult reinforces the myth that humans are superior to other animals & justified in violating them.

Stand up for justice by rejecting supremacist language.

Shemp is a turd. What does he suggest Biden did to reduce the "cases"?

Old Lurker

The ID doc from JH said more than a week ago on WMAL that only politics was keeping the secret that cases were falling like a rock and have been, and a number of other statistics and metrics that would be considered "good news" were as well.

henry

Just look at the summary graphs on Worldometers. Peak was in November.

Good afternoon! henry @ 4:52...when I read anything about PETA, I laugh. PETA thinks lobsters have feelings. We have lobsters a couple of times in the summer. When hubby throws lobsters in a boiling pot of water, I wipe away tears. :)

Marlene

Sorry, I should say lobstahs!

GUS

Henry, I don't believe any statistics vis a vis FAUCI and Il Douche of Scranton say. As I've said for many years here. EVERYTHING A FULL COMMIE SAYS, is a LIE and is designed to mislead for "reasons".

Lovely lunch with my sister in a restaurant run by a Greek family with about a bazillion items on the menu.I had hopped steak with mashed potatoes and gravy and am still full.

Then we went to her house to watch the Great British Baking show, picked up my groceries, and I just got done putting them all away.

I am interested to hear how this Gamestop thing all shakes out.

GUS

Oh btw "nature boy" Biden owns a 67 CORVETTE.

Gee whiz. McCarthy is now noticing malicious and baseless prosecutions by DoJ? The fact that he’s seeing in 2021 what everyone with two brain cells and a shred of honesty has seen for a decade does t make his garbage worth reading.

GUS

For a former Federal Prosecutor, Andrew McCarthy has always seemed VERY naive to me. Kind of like GOMER PYLE. He's not, he's seen how the sausage is made. Like many SENATORS over 40+ years who chuckled and said. Ha ha ha, that's just JOE, most of them know the deal. The SWAMP sucks people in.
I think, becoming an ELITE is intoxicating, and the gentile nature of the "club" turns good people bad.
VERY BAD.

RS McCain on the Gamestop sh!tshow...

"... Prison gang rape is the only metaphor that comes to mind for how badly the hedge funds got screwed on their GameStop shorts. How bad was it? So bad that NASDAQ intervened, so bad that Discord shut down the WallStreetBets chat channel, so bad that the Securities and Exchange Commission is now investigating the Reddit crew.

The “creative destruction” of capitalism can be a beautiful thing to watch, and if I were asked to write the script for The GameStop Story, the closing scene would be when “DeepF**kingValue” (played by Seth Rogen with a neckbeard) drives up to Mar-a-Lago in his gull-wing Lamborghini, with a Swedish supermodel named Elsa in the passenger seat.

Donald Trump comes out to greet him, personally.

Not kidding here. Liberals are actually claiming that “Trumpism” is what has caused the GameStop bonanza. The hedge funds got screwed over by “white supremacists,” some liberals are arguing on Twitter.

What does this claim imply? It implies that any challenge to the status quo is illegitimate, that it’s “hate speech” or “terrorism” any time you do something or say something that disrupts the ordinary process by which rich people get richer and powerful people exercise power. ..."

henry,

You, Melinda, and the others on here who understand the significance of all of this financial maneuvering are going to have to explain for the dim bulbs like me.

I am going to count on my stash of peanut butter to increase in value, and maybe will be paying the guy who lives in the retrofitted garage next door to roto-till an area for me to plant vegetables this summer. I am pretty good with tomatoes and cabbage.

Hmmm again.

The chief executive of popular online brokerage Webull said Thursday that the restrictions placed on trading GameStop and other highflying stocks rested with the platform’s clearing firm that helps streamline trades

GUS

I've yet to see ANYONE in the MOB, explain to me exactly what DJT did or said to incite a riot at the CAPITOL. I'm no conspiracy theorist, but it almost seems obvious, that this violence, was incited by ANITFAG et al.
Why the black out on information about various scum bags involved.
This reminds me of the LAS VEGAS shootings.
Why so little information?? What is being hidden??

matt - deplore me if you must

Lobstahs have feelers, not feelings.

Consider this. Joe Biden has now signed two Executive Orders; one restoring funding for abortions overseas, the other expanding abortions in this country.

No one else signed those, only Joe. It's all on him.

So how long will it take the Catholic Church to excommunicate him and declare him a pariah?

Another Bob

Robinhood lifts trading bans.

GameStop up 30% after hours.

It’s back on like Donkey Kong.

Another Bob

“streamline trades”

Does that term mean anything more than whether to cross or go to the market?

GUS

I really haven't been paying close attention to this GAME STOP caper.
Some needs to fill me in. Who won, who lost?

GUS

Webull is a subsidiary of the multinational Chinese company Fumi Technology. ... The company has a presence in New York and China.

henry

Miss M, what can’t continue, won’t. Spectacularly. The hedge funds stuck their fingers in Chinese handcuffs. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_finger_trap
To escape, they have to buy the security they are short. When collectively they have shorted more shares than exist... the price goes to infinity as they fight each other to escape. The trap gets tighter the harder they pull. Their backers get sucked in, and are trapped as well. Meanwhile it the price is pushed ever higher. When Robinhood sold shares (against owner instructions), the price cam down (by half— screwing the little guys) and made it less painful for the hedge funds. But as Melinda pointed out, they must buy the stock they are short by end of day Friday. And more shares are short than exist. There will be carnage.

Otherwise, tomato and cabbage are great things. Basil as well (grows well with tomato). Tomato paste and slaw can feed you all winter (as you likely know better than I do).

GUS

Meth-Hunter Biden. As I recall, he was romanced by the CCP. Yes yes, he flew there aboard AF2. Of course Joementia, had NO IDEA, why Meth-Hunter went along, and no idea what, Meth-boy was doing in COMMUNIST CHINA, while the "BIG GUY" went about his business. I mean, they never talked about METH-HUNTERS biz. Sounds normal to me. Flying from D.C. to BEIJING and you're not even a wee bit curious about what your SON, is going there for.

Who believes this horse shit?

Yay! Entertainment for me!

Narciso

Thats some kind of bear trap with a motor,

Melinda

No,

Option expiry gets automatic share assignment, for the "winners" and the have to come up with the strike price times 100 shares. That's the cash that's due on Friday's margin call. The shares get assigned to Robinhood, who then must allocate the shares to the proper customer sub-accounts.

Otherwise Robinhood has to eat the entire assignment of shares. That's why the credit lines have been tapped. Robinhood should know its customers, which ones are greatest at risk to turn into deadbeats. This is the Lehman moment for them, just without a Goldman to push them over the edge.

Narciso

So this is like michael burrys magnetron play at the heart of the big short.

Narciso

So whats the strike price?

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The CCP and the Dems and Davos Man all thought they would just turn the chaos machine on to get rid of Teh Donald in 2020 and then turn it right back off come the new year.
The chaos gambit seldom works for the Establishment trying to consolidate power. That's an insurgency thing and they seem unable to understand a real insurgency exists and is growing despite and/or because of their efforts and it's not just a tawny guy and his automatonic followers.

GUS

So Robinhood was a big shot, until it found it's business model was/is not a sure thing?

“As I have been saying all along, the Senate will deal with three things simultaneously: nominations — we’re working to confirm more nominees this week; a fair impeachment trial; and delivering emergency COVID relief,” Schumer told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

They have taken the LIES and PROPAGANDA, as if it's in any way true.

I hope we all live long enough to see this FULL COMMIE FRAUD, destroyed, and the perps brought to justice.

FAIR IMPEACHMENT TRIAL??? They are evil, not merely "nuts".

Oldest was approached by the Bridgewater fund her senior year. She had several interviews, and in the end decided that life was not for her. So she’s a private school teacher. Talk about one extreme or the other.

On the other jom site Jamesd set up a site for people selling products. It’s interesting. I saw Caro’s site and I thought of my oldest’s roommate, who works for an online art auction house. I told daughter about Caro’s art and wondered if her friend knew of her. Turns out this friend is in the photography division. She had to sell Mapplethorpe art. 🥲 She is really hoping to get out of the photography division. She was very grossed out.

MissMarple2

CCGirl,


We are supposed to get ice, then 4-9 inches of snow between Saturday and Monday. My weather gauge on this is the cats, who were feral and now know they have a good deal here and do not try to get out.

Speaking of dogs, I was griping about the politicization of science today at lunch and my sister said she was aggravated that the dispute between why Cro-Magnon Man triumphed over the Neanderthal never mentioned dogs. She thinks that although the Neanderthal had larger brains, they couldn't compete with the Cto-Magnon, whom she believes brought dogs with them into Europe. She thinks dogs assisted them in hunting, scavenging for food, and served as guards, and that explains the close bond between men and dogs.

CCGirl

MissM, I wish I could have lunch with you and your sister. I love conversations like that.

For most of my life I did not get the dog thing. Then I got a dog. It’s been a whole new world since then.
