Carl Icahn Pimpco Slaps Bill Gross As Billionaire Tweet-fight Escalates

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A week ago, completely out of the blue, Bill Gross took a swipe at Carl Icahn, tweeting "Icahn should leave #Apple alone & spend more time like Bill Gates. If #Icahn’s so smart, use it to help people not yourself." Today, Carl Icahn retaliates.

We can't wait as this cage match between a 69 and a 77 year-old escalates and culminates with the inevitable (Im)Mor(t)al Combat fatality.

For now, our money is on the Icahnator.

More impotantly: as the bored billionaires seek Twitter exposure, it is once again popcorn time.

How long before we see a tweet that says: "If you want to do good, why don't you bring me Dimon or Blankfein's head on a pike, as I have done?

Well before you get a flu shot, they do ask you if you are allergic to mercury.  It's like, uh, well, it's fucking poisonous, does that count as an allergy?

Conspiracy!

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/concerns/thimerosal/

I mean, yes, we are injected with mercury with the flu vaccine.

And, yes, mercury is obviously bad for you and accumulates in the brain and damages the central nervous system.

And, yes, the studies that say having it in vaccines isn't damaging were done in the 1930s (around the same time US researchers were inoculating subjects with syphillis and refusing to treat them with the known cure, penicillin) and no one has been all that interested in researching it since then.

And, yes, the CDC gets about 150 mil to 175 mil a year for flu activities.

And, yes, GSK and Novartis have annual revenues in the billions and make huge chunks of money off this free marketing campaign from the government and CDC.

But, no, there is no conflict of interest and getting an annual injection that contains mercury to prevent getting the flu less than 50% of the time is clearly the right thing to do.

Not to mention the vaccine manufacturers are completely indemnified and bear no liability for their products whatsoever.

'Look, Squirrel...'

Was about to say, this article barely qualifies as a distraction. Could really care less what Gross or Icahn think of each other. And in tweets no less. Tylers, I realize the whole 'the markets are falling' thing isn't arriving at a speed you desire, but stooping to this . . . c'mon. Between crap like this and the Simon Black articles, you're starting to lose my daily interest.

Let me see if I have this right......

1. Icahn buys shares in Apple. Now he tells Apple how to run company so as to line his pockets.

2. Icahn donates to charity. Now tells eveyone how they should give.

3. Buy NFLX shares. Publicly praise NFLX. Sell portion of NFLX while simultaneously shorting, most likely.

Yes, let's create a public fight over charitable giving so Carl gets to look like a human being.

Hey Carl, GFYS, Hey Bill, GFYS AND stop being a little bitch while you do it! Don't you clowns have an anti-aging scheme or space ship company you can invest in and get the fuck off twitter for a while!

Oh well I guess CNBC needs something to talk about now, since the Central Banks controls the markets tighter then Stalin and Hitler every dreamed they could do!

Geez I can't wait for Bill to respond, I wonder if this has anything to do with the two of them having giant undisclosed positions in the Twitter IPO?? Because the company has to be 100 billion if Gross and Icahn are on it right?

Giving Pledge dot org?  Is that one of those eugenics programs where they sterilize, vaccinate and give abortions to black and dark skinned poor women?  I could look it up but forgive me if I have my doubts about it being the billionaires program to help humanity or anything like that.  Fucking cynic me.

Yeah, like Bill Gates outlined at that one TED conference*.
And has helped fund.

Agreed. It is interesting that people who harp on overpopulation generally direct their remarks to Africa and Asia. Never mention Brussels, New York or London. Population control is thinly veiled racism to get rid of dark skinned people so the Eurostock can have Lebensraum.

When it's brought up around me, I remark if they feel that strongly about it, to lead by example and off themselves for the good of the world. No takers yet...

"Do good"? These twats make me sick.

1) create a "charitable" foundation
2) put one-world Cultural-Marxist Fabian international socialists in charge of it
3) execute your program of global enslavement
4) call it "doing good"

Hidden in plain sight. The Ford Foundation is the granddaddy of this scam; Henry Ford is probably spinning in his grave.

Well said.  For more information, the book 'Foundations - Their Power and Influence' is still a seminal work in my view (following the more common use of the word, of course).

The other, lesser used, definition of 'seminal' would refer to Henry Ford himself and, of course, Bohemian Grove activities... but I digress.
