What an oddly gross post.
This is exactly the kind of kid I was referring to. 

Cry me a river cupcake.

Tell me why hasn't the Government prosecuted Finestein & her ilk who dumped their stock on que last February.My portfolio got pummeled after that - I effed up I trusted the wrong people.And Pelosi buys TESLA stock and miraculously Sleepy Joe plans to cut the EV Market some benefits.And of course the Hedge Fund/Robinhood scam last week - nothing smells there.If you've been a decent soul and played fair by the rules laid out I can clearly see why some one,some where is going to twist off in a big way and sadly it almost needs to happen

I believe the preCOVID sales were investigated and there was insufficient evidence for any action.  As for Pelosi, it was:

1.  Almost certainly her husband.
2.  It was stock OPTIONS on TSLA bought Dec. 21.
3.  Everyone was aware Biden would try and push EVs well before that.

I don't think any of this would be a conspiracy of the type that is illegal.

I too have avoided social media. No Facebook, no Twitter nor Instagram or any of those other things. This forum is about as close as I get.Same-Same
And even here with what little I post, I seem to rile peoples feathers. I find it best to just read and keep most of my opinions to myself.Oh no,by all means let them have it most enjoy/agree with your slant

A thing I find interesting, often, is I might correct someone's post, pointing out a clear error or maybe just providing some context, like the full quote. 

I then get assailed as being a "communist" or "right wing retard".  I don't mind, but I rarely get asked what I think about the topic.

Several posted a deeply flaw "tax analysis" meme of what happens to a person who gets a raise to $15 an hour.  When I note that isn't how tax brackets work, I get called a communist who wants $100 an hour.  No, I just prefer correct data and information.


one of the biggest errors people make is thinking that getting a raise throwing them into a higher tax bracket will cause them to take home less money then before so I understand your comment

These 2 things became linked and that's what makes it a slur.  So we don't use it anymore.  Because of this link.  It's called evolving.  Try it.
Words have lost all of their meaning and intent matters. It’s only a slur if someone is using it in a derogatory way to demean or bully someone that is actually a homosexual.

Bullshitting with your friends as a joke like guys do and saying that- not derogatory.

Cry me a river you god damn cupcake.

[th]ax rate[/th]
[th]Taxable income bracket[/th]
[th]Tax owed[/th]
10%$0 to $9,87510% of taxable income
12%$9,876 to $40,125$987.50 plus 12% of the amount over $9,875

Single filers rates here, current.  If you make say $10 an hour, that's $20,000 a year on 50 weeks, and $15 an hour puts you around $30,000.The increase in your tax bracket is minimal, and I have included the standard deduction here.

I believe the preCOVID sales were investigated and there was insufficient evidence for any action.Bull an independent looked into it and found plenty of grounds to move forward.There was only one guy in that bunch who was known to have been active in the Market every day.The rest of them certainly knew ahead of time.I don't have that interview I wish I had saved those articles but with everything going on..... 

As for Pelosi, it was:

1.  Almost certainly her husband.
2.  It was stock OPTIONS on TSLA bought Dec. 21.
3.  Everyone was aware Biden would try and push EVs well before that.
Maybe in democratic circles,either way it is clearly a conflict of interest.Pelosi is a pompous steaming pile and has already been caught bending rules and laws.As utee has said - "I weep for the future" and the shame of it is it all could have been avoided

I don't think any of this would be a conspiracy of the type that is illegal.Maybe that's the problem at one time it prolly was considered or at the very least should have been.Because we know husband/wife and best friends never go home or stop at the Tavern and discuss shop

So your words, going by what you say here, are not at all concerned with how the receiver understands them? 
You should be a mime.
.
I'm amazed that you've deemed that words have lost all meaning.  I believe your words have lost all meaning, but not everyone's.  You refuse to evolve, and that makes you the cupcake.  The stubborn 3 year old who continues to piss and moan, expecting to get your way.  
Draw your line in the sand...as the bulk of humanity crosses it with impunity.  
.
I do love this, because the very people who refute evolution are the same ones acting like an ape.

Sigh. 

What I'm being is this thing, you've seen them around, it's called an adult. You know, the kind of person whose discourse isn't whining like a petulant kid on the schoolyard. The sort of person with a vocabulary that moves past misused slurs on the school bus. 

Now, I know, it offends the sensibilities of just so many to have to act like a grown up. You'll whine that I called what you said gross. High pitched whine too. Lord, the softness of folks these days. They cry up a river with their posts, but then when poked, they're the big strong boy on the playground.

I mentioned conspiracy as a kind of speech that CAN be illegal.  I wasn't referring to stock trading on inside information, which is illegal but for other reasons.

I'm not sure Nancy Pelosi could explain what a stock option is.

As a person who ate what seemed like a pound of M&Ms yesterday, I have no idea what you’re talking about.
