 And all of that would fall under the market rate...I'm talking about beating the market as a financier.

Foo's use of tar baby here is, IMO, acceptable. I have outlined my reasons in a previous...
I am quite unaware. I, much like you, have a profound distaste for many social justice movements, and avoid tumblr unless necessary (if, of course, your lordship sets up one yourself, then I will follow religiously. I won't even ask for trigger warnings).The thing that sets this book apart is that literature is not "common usage". It is making an overt point through studied irony.
