    At this point, I'd be surprised if he didn't. Flagrantly flaunting securities regulations while openly taunting the SEC is basically his hobby now.

    I wonder if he sold his 10% stake, at a profit, before making this announcement?

    They seem to be going out of their way to avoid calling this product an NFT, probably because of the reputation that NFTs have earned over the past year. Functionally, I'm not sure there's any difference between the Cryptosnoo NFTs you linked and these new Collectible Avatars. The card design is identical and the url used to customize your avatar with these styles is the same: https://www.reddit.com/avatar/nft.

    Turning Point USA and the entire conservative podcast universe is just the next iteration in a long tradition of grifting off angry viewers. I'm unsurprised that the buy gold/silver people have made the jump from Fox News to podcasts.

    We Cry Together is an uncomfortable listen. Really reminiscent of Eminem's Kim.

    Those are irrelevant if they continue to dominate the courts and gerrymander themselves into further entrenched power. All part of their very public plan to exert minority rule.

    but the reality of modern society and emerging demographics are not in their favor.

    Keep in mind that the GOP has no intention of stopping with just SCOTUS overturning Roe and Casey. They want a federal ban and are already preparing for one the moment they regain control of Congress.

    Republicans are going to claw back Civil Rights decades into the past.

    Yup. This ruling is premised on undermining the power of the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment. We're talking about 50 years of civil rights at risk.

    The ruling explicitly criticizes Lawrence v. Texas and Obergefell v. Hodges as rights not "deeply rooted in history."

    The PDF of the draft can be seen here.

    Page 5:

    We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled. The Constitution makes no reference to abortion, and no such right is implicitly protected by any constitutional provision, including the one on which the defenders of Roe and Casey now chiefly rely -- the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. That provision has been held to guarantee some rights that are not mentioned in the Constitution, but any such right must be "deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition" and "implicit in the concept of ordered liberty." Washington v. Glucksberg, 521 U.S. 702, 721 (1997) (internal quotation marks omitted).

    Also should clarify that I don't think Reddit is/was doing it intentionally. I think there was something funky going on with how Google was indexing the last activity on the submissions.
