    Dangerous simpletons. No way out with this thinking, in him and his Fauci’s.
    I've been playing this game with the market for two years. Last time the market crashed was because of fears of Mu. Happened on a Friday. I bought SPY calls. Loaded the fucking boat with them. Monday came around and the headline at the end of the day was, "Market shakes fears of new COVID variant. S&P 500 has largest daily gain since (I forget when, but it was good)."

    Guess what I did today? I bought a shitload of SPY calls again. You know why? Because the Fed was just about to (slowly) stop buying junk bonds and wean this inflation-ridden economy off the free money drug it's so hooked on. And, how convenient, just a week after the Fed Chairman is reinstated, a new variant comes along to scare every pansy-ass back into thinking that surely we'll lock down again. The Fed will respond predictably: by putting new ink cartridges in the money printer. Today was a great buying opportunity.

    Side Thought: If you were a hedge fund in NYC with billions of dollars at your disposal, wouldn't it be nice to have a few friends in the largest media market in the world (also, NYC) who could pump doom and gloom onto the airwaves so you can buy your equities at a hefty discount?

    I’ve agreed that the theory that the COVID response was engineered for financial gain and getting out of pending financial doom was a very compelling theory. I went further to say it seems more likely than anything I have come up with.

    However, such a theory is a conspiracy of intent and requires factual evidence. Some names and structures have been suggested .

    This would seem to be rather important, what with the goddamn end of the goddamn world looming just around the corner in the person of the "omicron variant," but nowhere is it being referenced in the state-run media.

    You never forget your first end of the world. After the third or fourth time it just kinda loses its luster.

    I'd buy in these dips if I understood finance better and had more discretionary.

    Fukushima created a similar (singular) opportunity. There was a major dip in the Nikkei, but I didn't know how to invest in it. I and others knew it was coming back, as it did of course.

    I guess "variants" get MORE deadly now? Funny how it's the opposite for every novel disease in history. How many "variants" has the flu gone through at this point? More than there are letters in the greek alphabet, that's for sure.

    And yet, RNA technology was used to create mRNA to mass produce spike proteins en masse inside of the body. If I had the time, it would be interesting to see what has been done regarding viral RNA destabilization, though I imagine it is likely very involved. This year has certainly demonstrated the risks of playing God with, instead of working through, the body's natural capacities and capabilities.

    The Western response was based on the Eastern response. Remember, China started the lockdowns then the Western world started salivating at how South Korea leveraged their cashless system of transacting to "contact trace."
