Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for April 19th – Investment boycotts

Hysterical Headlines (Funny or Absurd) for April 19th  Investment boycotts? Seriously?  

Bottom Line: These are the daily doses of nonsense in the media and my hot takes on them...       

Excerpt: BlackRock is the top shareholder in gunmakers Sturm Ruger (RGR) and American Outdoor Brands (AOBC). It's the second-largest shareholder in Vista Outdoor (VSTO). 

Vanguard is the second-largest shareholder in Sturm Ruger, and the third-largest shareholder in American Outdoor Brands and Vista Outdoor. 

Hot Take: I guess this is part of his yearlong sabbatical started early? Never mind that 93% of investment options at Vanuard don't even have any related investments - they're still one of them right?  

Bigotry is alive and well. Just watch and listen to David Hogg and his merry band of propagandists in the media. 

Excerpt: Currently, able-bodied adults ages 18 to 49 who don't have minor children must work or enroll in a training program for 20 hours a week. Otherwise, they can only receive benefits for up to three months every three years. But states can request waivers of the work requirement for areas where unemployment is at least 10% or there is an insufficient number of jobs, as defined by the Department of Labor. 

Typically, about one-third of the nation lives in a place where the work requirement is suspended, though that share skyrocketed during and just after the Great Recession. 

"In some communities, SNAP is literally keeping grocery stores open,". 

Hot Take: So, we're supposed to be upset that abled-bodied adults between 18-49 without kids won't be able to stay on welfare in perpetuity? And am I also to gather than we're now in business of qusai government run grocery stores? I'm sorry but that sounds more like Greece than the United States of America.  

Hot Take: Those bastards! Isn't that the desired response here? Remember when the best, brightest and most successful were held up as examples of what's possible? That's so 20 years, ago right?  

Until tomorrow...
