The real news ... how the election was funded ...
« on: February 23, 2017, 07:51:04 PM »
Renaissance Technologies, on of the world's most secretive, and successful, quant fund ... has had an internal falling out after the election.  The principals are billionaires, and the firm has 55 billion dollars in assets.  They can buy or sell people like Bill Clinton for chump change.  Anyway, some of the principals supported Hillary and some supported Trump ... to the tune of millions of dollars.  One of them was the second biggest boner to Hillary.  After the election, one of the principals had a meltdown, he really hates Trump and his entourage, and kept speaking out publicly, and getting involved in post-election politics, after he promised not to.  That guy got fired today.  The original story is behind the WSJ paywall ...

Voters are just ants to these people.  People like the Clintons are just boy toys.  There is real power in the world, and they are exerting that power.  Ave Caesar!

Ants indeed.

The ants will inherit the Earth.  Are you a Red ant or a Black ant?

Who are the termites and who are the ants? the D, the R, or the financers?

I don't know if the ants can inherit the earth or not. The roaches will still be around after the next nuclear war, but will the ants survive?

That's all conspiracy theory.

And, BTW, the cockroaches won't inherit the earth.  They can't survive winters; they need our warm buildings.  Ants can however.

Actually, if humans vanished tomorrow, most creatures would not notice the difference and other large mammals would thrive.  The seas would be filled with fish, and whales would increase, and there would be lions, rhinos, and tigers spreading around.

I admire dragonflies. A grand old order of predatory insects extraordinaire.  Magnificent mosquito-catchers.  I grandly allow you to be one.

Real estate is real wealth.  CDOs and REITs and Stock/Bond derivatives ... no so much.

The map is entirely arbitrary.  You could equally change it to show everything from California to Illinois and down through Oklahoma as being of minor economic value compared to the east and west coasts.

I think the map is only considering the amount of area, not specific geographical regions.
