The last few weeks have been living hell if you are vested in the DJIA. For those of us who chose to distance ourselves from stocks & counter party risk, we’re doing fine. But those that didn’t, came face to face with the fact that on a planet with finite resources, betting on infinite growth doesn’t end well.

More than likely it is closer to 50%. How can you look yourself in the mirror with pride doing that? Or be present for your kids ...

I’m not a Republican or a Democrat, but I can smell a scam a mile away.  I did, however, watch the entirety of the State of the Union speech by President Trump and here’s my reaction. If you don’t already know, I’m a Libertarian but I would pretty much extend that to being an Anarcho-Capitalist.  If you don’t know already, “Anarchy” is simply the definition of “Without ruler”.  I don’t believe ...
