“Bay Area Moses” and a Trumpless Twitter

I will admit that the main reason I bought Twitter (and rightfully took the profit on this non-investment) as one of my post-crash holdings last year was the Trump effect. Love him or hate him, his robo-tweeting was legendary, epic and must see reality TeeVee. The Reformed Broker, Josh Brown has a writeup about Twitter from the perspective of a dissatisfied long-term shareholder. re: Trumpless … Continue reading “Bay Area Moses” and a Trumpless Twitter

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?

Trump: Make America Mediocre (at best) Again

In this post we set aside any personal thoughts about Trump and simply take him at his own words. If you believe I am wrong and decide to write me about it, you will need to back up your assertion with the reasons why Trump’s badgering of the Fed for policy that has in the past and will again hurt the lower and middle class … Continue reading Trump: Make America Mediocre (at best) Again

Yes, He Actually Said It…

Here is our ever so subtle president, out front pumping the US stock market as the entire planet parties hardy. Even the worst boiler rooms whose purpose it is to suck in and fleece naive newbies would not stoop to such cheer leading. Think about all the Trumpies that opened their discount brokerage accounts in late 2017 (the sentiment blow off was January 2018), piled … Continue reading Yes, He Actually Said It…

No Difference Between Trump & Obama in One Area

In for a Penny, in for a Pound I guess and so with this morning’s post opening the flood gates I will state my views and tell you that if you have a problem with them then… you are entitled to that. But you should think about facts along with your opinions. And if I offend you in some way you are welcome to email … Continue reading No Difference Between Trump & Obama in One Area

Trump Impeached! [w/ edit]

[edit] As with all these posts that include politics this one seems to have stirred something up that I did not intend. If you think for one minute that I have “reverence” for the Federal Reserve well then you are either not paying attention or my writing style is confusing. My whole point is that the Fed makes monetary policy and that monetary policy has … Continue reading Trump Impeached! [w/ edit]

Putting the Lie to the Latest Trump Pump

For a little comic relief, here’s our Cheerleader-In-Chief. Sure Mr. President, but it’s not just a Great America thing. US stocks have declined vs. Russian stocks for over a year now. Great America made its high vs. Europe a year ago. America made its high against China A-Shares over a year ago. US made its high against Japan back in August. Vs. India over a … Continue reading Putting the Lie to the Latest Trump Pump

To Trump Supporters Who Are Also Investors…

Happy now? Well congratulations, if the reports are true Trump is now trying to take over free market forces with protectionism going steroidal. I hold BABA and so I am doubly irritated by this. But those investors emailing me to ease up on Trump because of all the good he’s done might just want to consider the bad he’s doing as well. Stock market hits … Continue reading To Trump Supporters Who Are Also Investors…

Powell Cuts, Trump Throws a Twantrum [w/ edit]

[edit] I may have misspoken in the post below. If my hazy memory serves I think I remember something about Powell not being a formally trained economist. But it does not alter the post’s points in the least. Jerome Powell is a trained economist. He presides over a committee of trained economists. Now, you may know that I don’t value the term “trained economist” much … Continue reading Powell Cuts, Trump Throws a Twantrum [w/ edit]
