    I’m reminded of Jon Stewart’s interview with Jim Cramer about, among other things, that video of Jim Cramer, and he said something like “I want this Jim Cramer to help protect America from *that* Jim Cramer.”

    I don’t not feel one bit of sympathy for the billionaires or the hedge funds. They have been taking advantage of people for years. Bunch of cry babies now!

    It’s sad that the people who bought GME are holding onto it. The people who lost money are just shorting it again and will get their money back. Easy come easy go, good on the people who sold it around $400 you actually took money from hedge funds.

    Great Piece. Sadly though, the greed and manipulation will continue. Our Government needs to step up and pass laws that protect against these abuses.

    That whole Gamestop debacle (for hedgefunders) feels like Justice.
    Plain and simple.
    And looong overdue !

    And thank god for Twitter in the sky !
    Now everybody should do it, since it’s legal.

    Priceless and Ironic – Tantrum fits fly when they get beat at their own game?! When Redditors rallying GameStop is market manipulation but when Hedge Found Billionaires shorting a stock it is just an investment strategy?! Hypocrisy at its highest. Oh my, double standards?!

    Wall Street always spouts Economic Darwinism, but when they’re in trouble, then they’re the first in line begging for help. When’s the $1400 coming?
