got back to even. :thumb:

I'll stick around for a while...see if it makes one more jump.
I might be losing some green on it this week. Decided to buy some calls and was almost there until I don't know what happened. Still 2 days left but the Greeks are eating up any profit...
should have dumped it first thing this a.m. when it hit 1.95. Would have made a tidy profit then. Seems to spike first thing in the morning then settle back down through the course of the day.

Even you couldn't be more wrong about that. I see military confrontation with China as inevitable. Trump does dog tricks for Putin in public.
After you've wiped the Chinese spooge off your chin, tell me how electing the socialist dolts like Bernie that you support will help us avoid or win this inevitable military confrontation?
...Bernie!....Socialists!....Chinese spooge! :ohno:

Heavy flow day I presume?

So it's inevitable, let's just speed up the process and flush the country down the drain. In other words, you have nothing but more scat.

The socialist dolts who were advocating for domestic manufacturing and fighting globalism for decades? Those socialist dolts?

The socialist hypocrite who relies heavily on class divisions and scapegoating capitalism but who owns three homes and enjoys a very comfortable life thanks to capitalism. The career politician who has never held a real job in his adult life. That socialist dolt?
Yep, that socialist dolt.

China is already blacking out the Celtics over this:

I love it. Kanter is putting the NBA on the spot. This is actual truth speaking to power. I also like how he calls out the hypocrites.

I can’t wait to see how the NBA responds

Is this Whiny Cunt's Day or something? :?

The news isn't all bad, Myrtle; the Chinese will certainly do a better job of managing our economy than we have. :coffee:

Crickets so far. Are they hoping he loses interest?

I don’t think the IOC being a corrupt organization comes as a surprise to anyone, but anyways….

He's certainly bringing up some very uncomfortable truths. A lot of people make a lot of money on their dealings with China and just look the other way.

Frankly, I don't think athletes should skip the Olympics. I think the best thing would be for athletes to show up and protest en masse. Make it uncomfortable for China. They don't like opinions.

I’m torn

I think we should isolate them

But the idea of winning more medals than them is appealing.

But podium protests are now and have always been meaningless. Our complete absence is something that cannot be blacked out by MSNBC er, I mean Chinese state media

But a complete absence would just be played up by the Chinese as us capitulating to them and afraid to compete on the same field. And, kinda like how we succeeded when the Soviets boycotted LA, the Chinese would have a whole slew of more medals to trumpet in our absence. I agree, podium protests are meaningless, but I don't think it would be restricted to the podium - athletes could be wearing stuff or protesting things all over the place during their competitions. They can black out the protests if they want, but even the most simplest Chinese viewer will be wondering where the Olympics went if they started blacking out everything. Not that it would move the needle all that much, the simplest Chinese viewer can't do very much, but it would make the powers that be more uncomfortable and it would keep embarrassing China globally. Heck, the WTA is pretty small in the grand scheme of things and they made China squirm with this whole debacle.

Can we have AOChe's dress designer help with Olympic uniforms? We could put things like "Uyghur Lives Matter", " Taiwan Is An Independent Nation", and "Free Hong Kong" on our uniforms and drive the censors crazy trying to blur them as the athlete competes.
