Trading at 10%. Just an observation.

Endorsed Clinton in 2016 or Biden in 2020 (for President vs Trump)
bought Ṁ3 Endorsed Clinton in ... YES

@yetimaster @thepurplebull @gregrosent Please keep buying NO.

Black hair ( or black before they turned grey )

Would Tim Scott resolve this as a YES or a NO?

He had black hair (and the hair he still has, e.g. eyebrows, is black).

@PaintspotInfez I assumed it is NO, because it specifies only black->grey, not black->bald

@PaintspotInfez It appears to refer to the natural hair color, which I would say is obviously black in the case of Tim Scott.

This is all fun and games since it’s plain including to everyone whose name has been bandied about, it makes no difference who Trumps running mate is except to them. I doubt even Trump thinks it makes a difference to him! There’s not some “independent” or “swing voter” or “undecided” constituency who is going to say “gee I was on the fence and kinda unmotivated but hey I love Kari Lake, this is a game changer!”

Ownership stake in a company in the fossil fuels, weapons, pharmaceutical, tobacco or financial services industry

There is no way to determine this. It should be resolved N/A.

6 feet or taller
bought Ṁ450 6 feet or taller NO

Who on the shortlist is 6 feet or taller? Vivek isn't. Tim Scott isn't: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2435658/

I guess it's just some long-shot names like Glenn Youngkin, Tom Cotton, maybe Doug Burgum.

Beholden to a special interest group (eg fossil fuels. guns, Pharma, tobacco)

I think this needs some clarification as far as what counts as “beholden”

@strutheo Fair. Significant financial ties to. For instance campaign donations from company/ies, ownership stake in company/ies, former industry lobbyist.

@BlueDragon or maybe we can change this / make another one that is just 'public documented ties to some lobbying group or firm?'

@strutheo sure, thanks and could you please edit it?

@strutheo just curious, editing it was not possible after all?

@BlueDragon if people traded on it already under the other assumption i wanted to nullify those trade. if you want to add it yourself you can, ill delete the one i made

bought Ṁ25 public documented ti... YES

@strutheo So to be clear, the "documented ties" one resolves yes if they have "campaign donations from company/ies, ownership stake in company/ies, former industry lobbyist" as stated on this thread?

@PeterF sound good? @BlueDragon

@strutheo I’m going to make/propose two:

Publicly documented ties to a lobbying firm

And

Ownership stake in a company in the fossil fuels, weapons, pharmaceutical, tobacco or financial services industry

Thanks @strutheo and @PeterF i am listening if you have further comments.

Oh dang I made a dupe! Sorry for not reading/following more closely @strutheo

@BlueDragon its ok its because search no longer tells you if there is a dupe

@strutheo :( well also I nerded on adverb.

So I think @PeterF now this means owning a company resolves separately from ties to lobbying, which seems right to me.

Is Vivek 6 foot?

@SiddharthPal probably 5'11

6 feet or taller

it's gambling time

Beholden to a special interest group (eg fossil fuels. guns, Pharma, tobacco)

How would this even be determined?
