Ah, yes, "reasonable:"

Regulating tourist visas for pregnant women is one way to get at the issue, but it raises questions about how officers would determine whether a woman is pregnant to begin with, and whether a woman could get turned away by border officers who suspect she may be just by looking at her.
Turning away women at random to solve a non-problem. Completely "reasonable."

So will women be peeing on sticks at the border or will blood be drawn?

Dim....

I once represented a bank in a patent lawsuit about ATM display screens for Casinos. I wouldn't claim to understand the financial crisis. I did learn about how bad degenerate gamblers are. IIRC you were not working in regulating, in fact not working with companies at all, you were involved in prosecuting certain actions against companies.

As to your experiences working inside, and your thoughts about the firms your company hires, you might want to blame your GC.... oh, wait, sorry....no offense.

Ask an antitrust lawyer who spent years working in that space.

Why? If he were smart I'd expect he'd tell me to ask Thurgreed.

If you want to understand why the markets failed, it makes sense to talk to someone who was paid to understand how the markets work, and who worked on clearance for transactions that happened during the crisis.

But, hey, you be you.

I'd ask if you worked on the only 24 hour early termination I've ever personally witnessed, but I don't recall which two banks were involved (and wouldn't name them anyway).

Adder during those years at work he had to only be reading blogs about why W needed to be impeached and posting them here. He had a new theory every day. There is no way he had time to have any significant role in a real matter. The only termination he worked on there was when he left.

Thou shalt not..

predict. Or speculate.

But just for the sake of envisioning this black swan... What if Trump were convicted and removed?

How would he react?
His 40% react?
The market react? (I think it’d do little, perhaps even rise.)

Civil unrest?
End of the GOP?
Bernie crushing Joe as last populist standing?
Joe crushing Bernie in a grand “return to normalcy”?

I'm looking for the "crawl back under their rocks" option. That's what I'm hoping for. That some of these reptiles just get back under the rocks.

Conservatives would love a good stab in the back.
