Off the Rails
It’s been quite a while since I left the reservation and did a talk about “conspiracy” stuff, and today I’d like to go there for a change.  
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re well aware that since the Election of Donald Trump, there’s been nothing in the news OTHER than Trump, Russia, hacking, leaks, Comey, Wikileaks, Emails, etc. etc.  It never stops, and one of the most prescient forecasts I ever made was Election night when I said to everyone “this isn’t over”  I didn’t know how right I was.

A prediction (Latin præ-, "before," and dicere, "to say"), or forecast, is a statement about an uncertain event. It is often, but not always, based upon experience or knowledge. There is no universal agreement about the exact difference between the two terms; different authors and disciplines ascribe different connotations.

Oh no, Not Gold Again!

Yeah, it’s Gold again. Maybe. Let’s chat about why....

The Double Whammy
It’s quite hard to write a “financial” letter 2 times a week for almost 25 years and not go over some of the same things.   Knowing that I try my best to change it up as often as I can, so repetition doesn’t bore you and I to tears.
However, there’s something that I’ve written about before that I think needs not only closer inspection, but a real hard “think” about the ramifications.  So let’s get started with the first part of the double whammy...

Memorial Day
This holiday, which is currently observed every year on the last Monday of May, actually started as Decoration Day after the American Civil War in 1868.  That is when the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans founded in Decatur, Illinois, established it as a day for the nation to decorate the graves of the Union war dead with flowers.

The .380


I knew it would happen, it always happens. Over the weekend while talking “off topics” in my last article, I had mentioned I had changed my personal concealed carry gun from a Ruger LCP to a Barretta Pico. It is chambered in .380. I should have started counting the seconds after it was sent, because I knew someone would write in and give me noise about carrying a .380 for self defense.  This was the first and most colorful of them. (exactly as I received it for special effect)

Off Topics
I’m not going there today. Nope.  No Trump, no special prosecutor, no Seth Rich mysterious murder cover up, etc.  Today I’m going off topic on several issues. Why? One, to take a break from it all...but two...because sometimes the things you’ve been told and might even believe are not always set in stone. . So, let’s go off the reservation a bit, and talk about a few different subjects.

Ransom, The Test
So, the story goes that some hacker saw in a Wikileaks email, that the NSA had created a Malware, and this hacker gleaned it and unleashed it on the world. Called Ransom-ware, the virus gets in your hard drive and encrypts all your data. It is then useless to you. Then the hacker tells you that for a price, he will send you the key to decrypt all that info and you get your computer back.

All of it
Today's letter is about pondering. We're going to ponder the future. It should be interesting.
I would guess that by now most of you know that things are just not like they used to be. If you went back 30 years and tried to tell the investing community that GAAP accounting would be replaced with "pro-forma" or "adjusted" earnings, they'd look at you funny. If you told them that in some years, fully 40% of the market's moves were based on stock buy backs, buy backs financed by selling Corporate debt, they'd giggle at you.

The Greater Fool
I continue to do a fair amount of radio interviews, and Tuesday I had the distinct pleasure of chatting with my friend and radio host Phil Mikan out of Connecticut. We were talking markets, manipulation, pensions, economy, etc, but there was one particular issue that I wanted to stress to his listeners.
