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...
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?

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?
