I worked for a smallish private company a few years back. We did well and were audited by GT every year. We survived the dot bomb crash by downsizing. The Owner was an egomaniac and decided it was a good time to expand, wrong! GT gave us the "not a going concern" business letter on the next audit. The owner fired GT, we closed the doors a year later. Getting a "going concern " letter on the first audit is the sign of an NFL, NOT FOR LONG company,

That vivid yellow Karine is wearing is extremely becoming.

So help me Sagan but I don't believe that there exists a color that young woman cannot wear well.

Karine can rock all kinds of outfits. She's just got the whole thing- looks, smarts, poise.

I watched the ticker at Yahoo and it went down a dollar is just the minute or two I was at the site.

Wait, what is 22% of $3.5 Billion?

jeebus, he is bleeding paper value faster than Elmo.

Expand full comment

PAB wishes he could bleed value as quickly as Elmo. Sadly, no matter how much he loses on Trump Social, he has no chance of catching up to Elmo. Right now Elmo is down ~$30billion, based on the latest valuation of Twitter (only Nazi fucks call it 'X'), and Trump would have to have 10 times the assets he claims to even have a chance to lose that much.

Poor pussy-ass-bitch Donny Dumbfuck has to go begging to Elon Musk, and gets denied. Sad, week, poop.

They issued a "going concern" letter, basically saying there is substantial doubt about the financial viability of the company and bankruptcy could occur TWO WEEKS AFTER GOING PUBLIC!!! WHO THE HELL IS REGULATING THIS?

Expand full comment

No one, apparently.

Expand full comment

Hold on. Are you suggesting that a legal shell game to allow public listing of a private company without the normal oversight might not actually be a good thing!?

The SEC is moving slowly to increase regulation on SPAC's.

Who are these people who are still capable of being shocked by anything to do with the unnaturally hued huckster? It’s terrifying to think such dimwits are in any position of authority on anything.

And they say conservatives aren't funny:

"As an April Fools’ Day joke, Donald Trump’s campaign sent out an email to supporters Monday with the subject line, “I’m suspending my campaign …”

The body of the email read “JUST KIDDING” followed by a vow that he would “NEVER SURRENDER!” and an entreaty for campaign donations of at least $5."

Link to watch the slide of Truth Social stock. Apparently "DJT" is also "Dow Jones Transportation average" somewhere, and at first it looked like it was holding prettty steady, but it isn't. It went from 60 down to 50 in just this morning.

I gather there are protests on the "Left Coast" where people are blocking traffic over the War in Gaza.

One would think they'd be more up in arms about things closer to home, with a more direct effect on them.
