UBS was forced to buy a woke bank (see quote below).


Meanwhile, Biden vetoes an ESG investing law, his first veto in office.

Again, one cannot combine Socialism with Economics (capitalism) and get away with it for too long, because they eventually show up as massive losses.

Go woke, go broke.

I'll come back to banks soon since they're in play, but Amazon just announced another 9,000 employees being cut in addition to the others.

Amazon’s wokeness will make your stomach turn

June 29, 2021

Do you have any idea how a woke society will look like? Well, Amazon Studios’ new inclusion policy gives us a glimpse into what wokeness can do to an organisation.

Earlier this month, Amazon Studios announced a policy that underscored its commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity for its content and productions. It also released a “playbook” designed “to help disrupt the biases that occur across the lifecycle of a series or movie, from the first inkling of a concept to viewers streaming the content on Prime Video.”

I'm ok with transgenders coming out.
I'm OK with adults doing whatever to themselves, but I'm not ok with with adults doing things to kids

Why is detransitioning a thing? it makes me sick when that person was not an adult and was talked into this

I really don't think parents are talking these kids into anything. Only parents and the kids themselves know what's best. I think it's absurd for complete strangers or the govt preventing people, kids and families in the pursuit of happiness. It's about freedom. It's about not letting the nanny state control your life. The clear majority of transgenders that transition remain transitioned and never look back. Probably because they are happier with less depression. Let people and families have the freedom to pursue happines. Usually the alternative preventing them happiness turns into depression. I've seen 1st hand how deadly depression is.

11 banks dropped $30B into FRC the other day.

Today, she's off almost 50%.

The longer Jamie Dimon waits, the cheaper he'll get her.

I imagine it is very rare. It's rarely the parents, it's other influence.

In fact there are places where activists want to be able to cut the parents out of the picture if necessary. This has failed to get passed anywhere in the US so far, I understand.

So no surprise DIS is laying off 4,000 this go around.

Where are these places that want to cut parents out?
Who are these activists?
I'm really not aware of these activists or places.
Why not go after these so called places or so called activists if they exist
Why not leave families alone to pursue happiness?
I've met 1 transgender that I know of and had a conversation. This was an artist that created festival posters. I 1st got to know him as a man and talked to him about his art. I have to admit I was taken aback and quite shocked at the next festival when he transitioned to her. I was a customer and continued to be a customer. She seemed so happy after the transition. I have had nice conversations with him then her about art

We had one member on here or WOV that dressed Trans but I don't know if he/she was going through any permanent change. I talked with her at a couple of meetups.
