OT: Gun control does not take away your freedom

Background checks only make complete sense It’s a social and mental health epidemic. Even in the cases of violent racism, IMO, it’s a mental health issue. It’s not about Trump or Biden (each worse than the other in certain ways), republican or democrat (each worse than the other in certain ways). It is about money, about profits and about the perceptions held in place to … Continue reading OT: Gun control does not take away your freedom

Hopefully the last time Trump is mentioned on this site…

On the occasion of two blow back emails, one from a subscriber and one from an email buddy who has in the past taken issue with my Trump views. Both are, from what I can gather, fine and thoughtful people. Yesterday, for the first time since a new administration took over to promote its own brand of wrong-headed monetary/economic ideas, I mentioned Trump in passing … Continue reading Hopefully the last time Trump is mentioned on this site…

Biden’s alternate universe

As Biden Speaks, remember the economy is run by the Fed and it is run by inflation Of course, a career politician will be adept at framing the narrative just right, adding to it, tweaking it and layering on fancy words and concepts in order to veil the true and unbelievably simple fact that the inflation started under a very different presidential administration and continues … Continue reading Biden’s alternate universe

My name is Gary and I have ‘TDS’

Hello. My name is Gary, and I have Trump Derangement Syndrome. I had never heard of TDS until this very morning, but apparently I have a case of it. I am not being a wiseguy here. In hindsight I realize I’ve suffered from this affliction for decades (I never liked the questionable businessman>tabloid star>reality TeeVee star as a human, let alone as my president). The … Continue reading My name is Gary and I have ‘TDS’

“Our Great USA Wants and Needs Stimulus”

Pardon me sir, but if the USA is so great why on earth does it need artificially concocted greatness in the form of money printing (about which you harangued the Fed Chief for months before COVID-19 came about) and fiscal giveaways? A great USA should have had seed corn in the form of savings to fall back on. That lack of seed corn is not … Continue reading “Our Great USA Wants and Needs Stimulus”

Does my contempt for Trump indicate a Democrat bias?

Ha ha ha, that’s the short answer. The longer answer is (based on an email received about my obvious hatred of Trump after my comment in this post)… In case anyone else is wondering, I obviously cannot stand Donald Trump (hate is too strong a word, as I think about him more as a disgusting, selfish and narcissistic “clown” than I do with hatred). If … Continue reading Does my contempt for Trump indicate a Democrat bias?

“And they want to throw God’s wonderful breathing system out the door”

Okay my global friends, we are not all dumb as a stump here in America. We just play the role on TeeVee along with our reality star president. Some of us however, take the role really really seriously. As COVID-19 cases perhaps moderate nicely in your country because you took orders from your oppressive government, we here in America believe in freedom. See, these Americans … Continue reading “And they want to throw God’s wonderful breathing system out the door”

Mask Your Maw & Obey the Law (within reason) [w/ edit]

[edit] As often happens when I go off topic into politics I think a few people are surprised at my lack of sophistication in that area (which I don’t mind). A couple emails would set me straight on the political issue, as I actually agree that my view stated below is overly simplistic. One emailer, a former public defender and Assistant DA also contests my … Continue reading Mask Your Maw & Obey the Law (within reason) [w/ edit]

US-Iran

We had an NFTRH update on this a little while ago. It was all about the practical market management aspect of this situation. It is vital in markets to mute or filter the noise at all times. That said, this is noise beyond the average. Click headline, get article or go to the main MarketWatch page and get a ton of articles on the US … Continue reading US-Iran
