    Umm you asked me if I know something about him, I responded. Stop acting like an idiot.

    I was actually trying to have a conversation. My last question was an honest one, that I was interested in the response to...

    I won't ever ask you a tough question like "why?" ever again, Fritz von Schneflocke ;)

    Your question was not "tough", it was stupid.

    Two different questions - do I know him? Yes.

    But then you go "how does that make him a presidential candidate?" Obviously it doesn't, but I was just responding to your question, not claiming that that makes him a presidential candidate.

    That's not a sincere attempt at having a conversation.

    Pulling that off 2B at the highest levels without landing in jail or getting stuffed in an offshore container...much respect. Yall know his billionaire buddy donor pool also made bank during the run-up.

    I suppose the next grifter high would be running and winning the highest office of the land.

    Afterwards, maybe the world when venture capital aliens appear looking for cut-rate bargains?

    There are a lot billionaires whose grift eventually comes due.

    But Jim Cramer said it was good?

    Vivek lied to me?

    Are you saying I *shouldn't* have given my CC codes to the nice man from Nigeria?

    Dr Oz's Magic Supplement of the Week really won't fix my cancer?

    I think some of the shine has come off Viv, I`m 50+ and I am old enough to know what Russia is and what Putin has done and would do in the future. Anyone who thinks they would go put ANY demand on Putin and then Putin keep his word is naive AF, I am sure he thinks he is a great deal maker like his mentor, but he should stop saying things like that because it shows his lack of experience and his lack of history. Putin is a terrorist in an expensive suit, his only mission in life is strengthening Russia and putting the screws to the USA...................even trump didn't get that but fortunately there are some seasoned members of the gop who know what he is like so maybe he should be getting some guidance to those who have been there and done that. I am sure Viv has made some great deals in his life, but Putin is not a transactional person, he is one sided and that's his side.

    A conman who got rich by buying a drug for alzheimers disease that had been failed by the FDA 4 times already, he repackaged it, took it to an IPO - and before it failed again, cashed in on 2bn in stock......

    Dude is a crook of the lowest order.

    Vivek and SBF are two peas in a pod. Both have high level talent in one specific trait: understanding the mindset of people with **** tons of money. Being charismatic to wealthy people is their strength.

    I would say younger version of Elon Musk had this trait also.

    None of these people are technically skilled at anything. But they know the vocabulary and mannerisms that convince wealthy people that they are geniuses

    I don't think you are qualified or have the intellectual capability to assess whether Vivek Ramaswamy is technically skilled at anything.

    Vivek Ramaswamy is not technically skilled at anything unless you think a basic bachelor's in biology makes you a subject matter expert and technically skilled.

    Express something in his life that was achieved after graduating law school that is achieved from technical intelligence rather than social intelligence

    while Elon and SBF are technical experts in selected computer fields, Vivek ran a hedge fund that profited off computer focused on prescription drug development. Vivek is more like the pharma bro, Martin Shkreli.


    elon and SBF are technical experts, not Vivek

    Sad but fairly predictable.

    There are always people who prey on the dumbest among us.
