Quote for the Day:

They declared that many of the most important and controversial questions left to lawmakers were instead answered by the Constitution itself, and that the kind of experimentation Roosevelt proposed was strictly off limits. The battle that emerged between Roosevelt and the Supreme Court was about far more than whether the New Deal would stand or fall. It was about whether the solutions to America’s most vexing problems were preordained—and whether the American people had the right to prefer Roosevelt’s bold experimentation to Hoover’s stoic confidence in the old ways.

Two of them his former AG's.

As for the market. we go up 300 points a day for 3 days, then NASDAQ takes a pause, then we drop 300 points, then dawdle for 2 o 3 days, then we're off to the races again. This is an AI Tech Bubble like 1999-2001. But earnings are not non-existent this time.

Today? META is $473. $473.



That is the only game to pay attention to.
