Nobody asked but …

Decades ago, it was common wisdom that the Hunt Brothers could not go broke if they threw away hundred dollar bills as fast as they could pick them up and toss them. It was thought to be an NP-Hard problem. But the Hunt Brothers did figure out how to do it. They bought up massive amounts of silver, and then they watched the market go the wrong way. They weren’t completely ruined, but they had discovered how to do it. Now, we’ve got a billionaire as POTUS who is flopping around trying to figure out how to wreck the most successful culture the world has ever known.  I think he, like the Hunt Brothers, is going to learn the hardest way.
