Progressives Fume as Fed Holds Working Class Hostage With High Interest Rates
  • Agree, lowering interest rates would be a bandaid trying to stimulate spending again since most large purchases would be with debt. It's funny the article even calls out some issues that congress can work out like high rent and record profis. It's the same when student loan forgiveness is mentioned, yes you can forgive the debt but it doesn't solve the core issue.

  • Trump heads to tech fundraiser in San Francisco, with some guests paying $300,000
  • Tech investors and podcasters David Sacks and Chamath Palihapitiya are hosting a fundraiser for Donald Trump at a San Francisco mansion.

    These guys are mad that Bidens administration hasn't been as friendly to mega corps, venture capital and crypto. Chamath specifically has had some SPACs get questioning from the SEC bc he wasn't being honest about the companies. If I remember correctly during the GameStop short squeeze, Palihapitiya repeatedly attacked Robinhood and its founders for being unethical by selling payment for order flow to HFT firms like Citadel Securities and pushed his fans to switch over to SoFi, which was merging with his SPAC. yet failed to mention that SoFi employs the same practice of selling payment for order flow to HFT firms (including to Citadel Securities) and owns a 16% stake in Apex Clearing Corp, a clearing house involved in the controversy

  • Biden Veto Angers Crypto Industry as It Floods 2024 Election With Cash
  • The resolution would have repealed the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Staff Accounting Bulletin 121, which sought to force financial institutions that are holding crypto to keep the digital assets on their own balance sheets, as Coindesk recently explained.

    Can someone explain why they are so upset at this?

  • "That's when judges hand down jail time": Ex-NY prosecutors say Trump is daring judge with outburst
  • Yeah, but unfortunately with how charged everything is if he gets anything he will claim political persecution and try to be a martyr ( his campaign has claimed they already raised 55m since the conviction). It's why I think he didn't get really anything bad when he violated the gag order so much.

  • The inside story of Elon Musk’s mass firings of Tesla Supercharger staff
  • The best is they’ve already brought some members of that team back after his short sighted decision bc bp was starting to swoop in on the supercharger spots. Tesla is also heavily pushing for shareholders votes now to ratify the corporation in Texas and give Elon his massive 56b bonus package back.

  • Exclusive: Bernie Sanders worries young people are underestimating the threat from Trump
  • Also trump is aligned with Netanyahu and is friends with him. Do they think trump being elected will have Israel have peace with Gaza because it would definitely be the opposite. This is playing out like the Carter/Regan election with the Iran Hostage Crisis in a losing effort for Biden if they don’t figure it out.

    [PFF] 49ers LB unit ranked #1 headed into 2023

    www.pff.com 2023 NFL linebacker unit rankings: San Francisco 49ers claim the top spot for second consecutive year | NFL News, Rankings and Statistics | PFF

    The San Francisco 49ers' linebacker unit, led by Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw, comes in at No. 1 ahead of the 2023 NFL season.

    Jun 20, 2023

    > The easy choice for the top spot, San Francisco fielded the highest-graded linebacker group in the NFL last season. They finished second in the NFL in run-defense grade (90.7) and led the NFL with an outstanding 88.5 coverage grade.

    >The 49ers boast two legitimate stars in Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw. Warner is the NFL’s most consistent coverage linebacker and posted a career-high 89.7 run-defense grade this past season, too. Greenlaw had a career year in 2022, earning a 79.6 overall grade bolstered by a nearly 20-point jump in coverage grade.

    >The group lost situational run defender Azeez Al-Shaair in free agency, but Oren Burks seems poised to take over that role.

    >The 49ers have the best pair of linebackers in football and the depth to fill in if one of them were to suffer a short-term injury. They are the current gold standard at the position.
