    Many suspicious deals with this bank. Holds many shares of sketchy tech names. Bill Hwang connection is likely the tip of the iceberg.

    An opinion from Alabama....

    ..."This is the problem with America. It’s why CEOs make 400 times what the average worker does. It’s why unions can’t get a solid foothold anymore. It’s why workers keep losing rights and why worker pay continues to be stagnant.

    Because the average American worker has been convinced that his fellow worker getting a $300-per-week unemployment bump is unfair, but the CEO making 400 times more in salary while also getting billions in tax breaks that never trickle down is just life.

    Look at what’s happening because workers have some flexibility. All of a sudden every major chain restaurant has thousands of dollars in bonuses that can be handed out. They can suddenly offer health insurance and college scholarships. Some of them are offering cars and cell phones.

    Starting salaries for non-management positions at one fast-food chain jumped from around $10 to more than $16 in less than six months.

    You know why?

    Because the money was always there.

    But the economic system we have implemented in this country — the one we’ve been conditioned to think of as normal — says it’s just fine for a worker to put in 40 hours per week and sleep in his car, because two months ago he had to pay for an unexpected car repair, while the owner/CEO buys a third house.

    We have parents in this country working two and three jobs, barely able to see their kids, because they’re too busy trying to pay for their childcare and health care. And somehow, other working-class Americans are angry that these folks decided to take a break.

    Because the lines at the drive-thru are long. And wait times at restaurants are out of control. And some small businesses are on the verge of going out of business.

    I’m sorry, but I’m having a hard time drumming up a lot of sympathy for these businesses struggling to find employees when the owners of those same businesses were trying to convince me less than a year ago that increasing the minimum wage was socialism and that “anyone can flip burgers.”

    But don’t get it twisted. I don’t want anyone to lose a business or go into bankruptcy. EQUALLY, I also don’t want workers sleeping in their cars, choosing between food and medicine, neglecting their kids’ health, allowing their own ailments to go untreated, living one car repair from homelessness.

    All of that is happening every single day in this country. And somehow, it’s normal and acceptable, and really, if you think about it in just the right way without adding any context, it’s probably that poor worker’s fault anyway because he or she didn’t try hard enough. Not like that CEO, whose grandfather started that business — why can’t everyone work that hard, you know?

    It’s a travesty how we continue to treat workers in America. And it’s even worse that those workers are so willing to turn on each other, convinced so easily that someone is getting a tiny break that they’re not. In the meantime, all of them are fighting over scraps falling off the kiddie table.

    And the 1% continue to laugh all the way to the bank. "

    "Liz Cheney says Donald Trump crossed a line. But the Bush-Cheney administration didn?t?"David Corn"In the 21st century, American presidents have at least twice tried to shape the world with a lie of enormous impact. Trump attempted to demolish the nation?s constitutional order and retain power with his false claim that the 2020 election was rigged and Joe Biden did not truly receive more votes. As Cheney points out, this lie delegitimizes the essence of the American political system. And two decades ago, another Big Lie was concocted and pushed by a Republican president that resulted in profound (and lethal) consequences. Her dad was its main architect.That was the untrue allegation that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass of destruction and was prepared to use them against the United States. The Bush-Cheney administration used these charges to garner public support for the 2003 invasion of Iraq. #$%$ Cheney was the chief pitchman for this flimflam. In an August 2002 speech, he proclaimed, ?There is no doubt [Saddam] is amassing [WMDs] to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us.? Soon after that, he publicly asserted that Saddam was trying to obtain aluminum tubes that could only be used for enriching uranium for weapons. And he also publicly cited a report that one of the 9/11 ringleaders had met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in Prague.None of this was true. And #$%$ Cheney?s lies were not the result of intelligence failures. US intelligence over the previous year had assessed that Saddam did not have a worrisome WMD program. Government scientists had concluded that the aluminum tubes in question were not usable for weapon-grade enrichment. And the CIA had discredited that Prague report. Yet none of this inhibited Cheney and President George W. Bush. They spent months dishing out an assortment of false statements?including the untrue claim that Saddam was in league with al-Qaeda?to grease the way to war. They succeeded. Bush won the support of Congress and the American public for his massive blunder in Iraq.The invasion of Iraq toppled Saddam?s dictatorship but it yielded a geo-strategic and deadly mess in the region. About 200,000 Iraqi civilians died in the ensuing years due to the war. More than 4,000 American soldiers lost their lives in the war."

    "Is it too much to say that giving oxygen to the Big Lie, let alone actively espousing it, is a form of sedition? Full stop. Think about it. Is lying about the truth of last November making a mockery of any pledge of patriotism? No matter how many flag lapel pins you wear or how often you quote the “Founding Fathers,” to deny a fair and honest election and the orderly transfer of power risks placing you squarely in the camp of dictators and autocrats, and helping with the demise of democracy. "

    In ETFC terms = 86.83 * 1.0432 = $90.58

    $90.58 = WOOT!

    (and we have had quite a few dividends paid along the way)

    "The Guardian: 'Decades ahead of his time': history catches up with visionary Jimmy Carter
    .........

    “Here’s what people get wrong about Carter:
    “He was not in over his head or ineffective, weak or indecisive – he was a visionary leader, decades ahead of his time trying to pull the country toward renewable energy, climate solutions, social justice for women and minorities, equitable treatment for all nations of the world. He faced nearly impossible economic problems – and at the end of the day came so very close to changing the trajectory of this nation.”

    There may be indications that the Archegos collapse was a pump 'n' dump. Over a 5 year timeline the most popular stocks in the basket seemed to be trading accordingly with market conditions. Tencent, Baidu, Discovery, Viacom CBS. GSX, etc. Then in January through March 2021 these stocks spiked heavily up until the day of the collapse. It seems wall street enacted their own version of wallstreetbets on Archegos, but in this case their intent was to let it wither on the vine. Hopefully all the carnage caused by this type of outfit called family offices are secluded to those who can afford to lose $100M.
    Here's the calamity, the lack of regulatory oversight allowed a man who was convicted of insider trading in 2012, to again begin a practice specializing in stock trading.

    "John Oliver rips ‘fear baboon’ Tucker Carlson and ‘moron’ Joe Rogan for vaccine misinformation.

    The problem, Oliver said, was not that people necessarily believed specific conspiracy theories about the vaccine peddled by the likes of Infowars host Alex Jones. Instead, he said the problem is that people are overwhelmed by misinformation and are unsure of what to believe. Oliver cited an Axios/Ipsos poll about vaccines in which only 4 percent of respondents believed a statement that said the COVID-19 vaccine was more deadly than the virus itself, but 25 percent said they didn’t know whether the statement was true or not.

    “If anti-vaxxers can simply spread enough misinformation to cause people to throw up their hands and say, ‘I just don’t know enough to get the shot,’ they have already seriously messed things up for all of us,” Oliver said."

    I am a new investor in MS, but with its low PE ratio, solid track record, and the fact that it sits in a good Industry right with good opportunities within its product line offerings. When the market in general sits at high historic metrics and you are seeing this with APPL, MSFY, Amazon, and others that they have huge earnings beats and the stocks go down.. I think buying this here is a very safe to get a great return without having to have huge blow out earnings
