    Well, I hear you. But that's not how the game is played.

    Their choices will be;

    A) sue the richest man in the world entangling themselves in endless litigation against a deep pocket litigant

    or

    B) Work a deal that gets shareholders the best price

    Sue him.

    If the market conditions had gotten way better, it's not like Twitter could negotiate for a higher price. You make a deal, that's the deal. Don't play fukkin games.

    OK, so the endless and unfruitful litigation option?

    Then Elon takes the 2 board seats. Pretty soon you got a $18 stock. But at least it remains a left wing platform.

    With the wokeness of today, I wouldn't rule it out.

    Wouldn't have to be endless. Court should see right through Musk's games and force him to live up to his contractual obligation.

    You know better.... If Elon was your client you would send TWTR to hell and back. You'd spend years on discovery and appeal every ruling. No one would live long enough to see the conclusion.

    No sir, you might be mad at his games but he is the puppet master at this stage.

    Roy, just sit this one out, you're out of your depth again. Better to pipe down on issues you don't understand, at least read an article before opening up your mouth.

    They didn't? Then why did so many Lefties lose 1,000's of followers when it was announced that Musk was going to buy Twitter?

    not only that but many Righties magically had thousands more followers overnight when the news broke.

    Twitter was only fooling, and still is apparently, those who like being fooled. Its hard to explain.

    Yep. Lefties lost 10's of 1,000's of accounts because the Twiiter personal panicked and deleted fake accounts that they knew existed, then Elon Musk acknowledged these fake accounts proving that Twitter wasn't what it appeared to be, thus the value of the company was much less than estimated.

    This ^

    The deal won't go forward without full disclosure. D2 knows it. This is not Elon's 1st acquisition.

    Plus, as I said, there are no back up suitors. Therefore Elon is in no hurry.

    TWTR will either provide unfettered access or Elon will say call me when you change your mind and that will be it.

    The world has gone liberal Jibby.

    And the tactics to beat down the right wing minority are all learned behavior from what was used in the past against other minorities.

    Right wing ideology dies with the X generation, for now.

    Was he outside the due diligence period? No way Musk enters into something like this without a reasonable due diligence period. He should have plenty of outs and a lawsuit would have no benefit to the shareholders.

    Wrong, there are more level headed people in this world then lefty loonies that can see what works and what does not and what policies have been destroying our cities, systems and Countries. Aussie land included.

    Liberals/Generation X will grow up one day and their brains will develop and with enough pain and bad policy in their communities and Country they will change and begin to vote the other way..

    I'm a prime example of that in my life time.

    I'm a middle of the road guy, so definitely do not want to see far left ideology taking control either.

    But I think the current loud noises are more our generation battling to remain in some control and relevant.

    I really think the world is going to swing further left before it comes back now.

    I don't know that's true. I see myself as a Liberal. Or at least the real meaning of the word. Not this new Liberal/progressive meaning of the word "Liberal". That's for certain. Can you tell me that Liberal still means ... secularism, rule of law, economic and political freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion? I don't think so.

    Its turned into easily offended people and cancel culture blue haired women and cucks. Its filled with Woke assholes, weak men and angry women. They consider it ok for men to compete with women but can't even tell you what a woman is. They believe skin color supersedes qualifications. They demand you kneel and apologize for being White and want to indoctrinate your kids in schools also. They defend grooming 6 year olds into this transgender nonsense and thinks its perfectly acceptable to discuss sex with kids. They see nothing wrong with drag queens coming to kindergarten and children dressing up in drag and dancing like strippers in front of adults.

    Liberals used to stand up to tyranny but now they align themselves with these tyrants and support the new world order mentality. Everyone is racist and everyone is a fascist nowadays is what they are told to believe. No proof of course. Not even an understanding of these words. Just follow and do as your told. They are against the rules of law. They want to defund the police for fukks sake. That isn't a Liberal anymore. I don't know what that is.

    Yet, you ignore the GOP cancel culture. Remember when Colin Kaerpernick began protesting? First thing people like you did was talk about boycotting Nike. You have school boards in Texas banning fukkking Harry Potter books. Schools in Tennessee banning as many as 300 books from students, among them Catcher in the Rye, and Huck Finn.

    The absurd woke left and their 43922 genders is stupid. But so is the Trump-ian GOP. penetrating guy legit tried to overthrow the US Government.

    The political middle has disappeared. I am no Joe Biden fan, but no way in fukking hell did I want Trump roaming around playing golf at his clubs at taxpayer expense for 1/3 of his goddamn presidency again. And Biden is a nightmare too, but I prefer this nightmare.

    And before you pat Trump on the back over the price of gas, remember that cokkksucker added more to the Federal Deficit (7.6 Trillion) than any other US President in a 4 year term. You want to know why we have staggering inflation? Start with the fact that Captain Orange let the deficit cripple us.
