Coming from a guy who’s only insight so far is a Hannity quip... lol.

That's very little in comparison. The dow and their net worths were riding all time highs. Again, it's really not that big of a deal.

Since they didnt make any changes, I imagine they just sat there and smiled.

Since they were the ones that sold their shares and then caused thousands of shares to be dumped, only to dip right back in and acquire thousands of more shares, while waiting for it to settle out again so they can count their money...

Yep. I’m sure they were all singing,

“Last night I took an L, but tonight I bounce back!”

...all the way to the bank.

How can the progressives love all these guys, Oprah too! And, still want to redistribute the wealth.

Maybe they get to pick and choose who gets all their money took from them.

I did have a bad day thank you very much. I got a new stove recently that runs hotter than my old stove and I constantly forget that it does. I put some eggs on and then went to the bathroom and when I came back my eggs were burning. I had to start all over. With eggs around 99 cents per dozen I lost roughly 33 cents.

The egg people and the stove people are in cahoots I tell you. CAHOOTS!

99c/doz eggs? 4 egg breakfasts? Putting something that only takes a couple minutes on the stovetop to cook and walking away?

99 cents is low but not out of the realm of possibility ... they store brand ones by me are generally 1.50ish


Provided they aren’t free range or organic. I generally buy the brown free range ones for about 2.20

That’s why I only buy eggs laid by immigrant chickens...

Way cheaper, and they lay the eggs American chickens won’t.

Of course, if you let them hatch, you have to buy the entire coup. But hey........ cheap eggs.
