It's funny that a report that US inflation ticked up from 8.5 percent to 8.6 percent triggered a ~20 percent selloff in bitcoin in a matter of days. Excellent inflation hedge.
All true, but in retrospect the biggest investor-driven lifestyle subsidy of all was the people who lost money on fracking to bring us cheap gasoline. https://t.co/iPYY2OuXEW
In 2019, if you woke up on a Casper, worked out with Peloton, Ubered to a WeWork, ordered DoorDash for lunch, took a Lyft home, made a Blue Apron meal and ordered ice cream via Postmates, you interacted with 8 companies that collectively lost about $15 billion in one year. https://t.co/skX1O76f0e

On the "violent crime is up" v. "actually, no" debate 1. In the 90s, all sorts of violent crime plunged. 2. In the '00s, all sorts of violent crime declined a bit, stabilized at lower level 3. In the last few years, homicides/assaults shot up but robberies didn't. (via )
This is the “violent crime surge” https://t.co/ul1Bd8tIjs https://t.co/vPej7yY4CM

She's still melting down though, somewhere out there. She's now accusing YIMBYs of being fascist genocidaires. She needs some time away from Twitter entirely. But then again, who among us does not?
The $40 billion was earmarked, not disbursed. And most of it doesn't go to artillery ammo. Sometimes I wonder if anti-Ukraine people even stop to think, or if they just blurff stuff out.
I still don’t understand how $40 billion only bought 4 days of ammo. https://t.co/kCxaur0kZU
