The FREE Investment Newsletter That Really Works!
Hey Folks, the latest Free Investing Newsletter is posted. In this one, we talk about "This guy Trump" Is he good? Is he as bad as Robert De Nero says? Wasn't the North Korea thing worth something? Or are the liberal leftists right, and he "gave away too much for nothing concrete in return?
I think those people are nuts. Are you telling me that on the very first time a sitting US President meets with the Leader of NK, they should have 70 years worth of hostilities worked out, a timeline for denuking, a panel of investigators, etc? Give me a break. How about fist things first?? How about just getting to the table without killing each other??
So, we talk about that. Then in the Market commentary, we talk about the Fed's hiking rates, and what Powell had to say in his Q&A press conference. He was definitely more "hawkish", but the market gave him a bit of a pass. However on Thursday, Mario Draghi and the ECB are supposed to start laying out their plans to taper their own QE programs. Is the market going to accept that as well? We talk about that and a lot more, so give it a read.
Hello all, the Sunday edition of the free investing newsletter is now posted and this time we're talking about the push back to the NRA that the liberal left has created. Companies are severing ties with the NRA, in hopes of appeasing the snowflakes running around the country doing sit in's. Well, it's the wrong thing for them to do, and we discuss why in this letter.
Then of course we plead guilty to blowing it on Friday, because we thought that like Wednesday and Thursday, if the market gained 300 points it might slide back and give them up. Well, instead they trotted out some Fed heads to tell everyone that the Fed's would be quick to respond to any softness, with....wait for it.... MORE QE.
Yeah, really QE. From the same lunatics that told us they're ready to work off their balance sheets. Give it a read, it's pretty good stuff.
Today's free investing newsletter starts with a commentary about the Vegas shooting. While I do not know exactly what happened, I do know what didn't happen. Some 64 year old patsy didn't single -handedly injure 500 and kill 59 people. The video's disprove that theory, as does the sounds and even the direction the people were running.
No, there's an agenda here and who's behind it is the question.
Then of course we talk about the market's insatiable drive higher, a drive based on coordinated Central bank QE. How long will it go? What's the end game? What happens when it ends? It's all good conversation.
The Honest Mechanic
(and other anomalies)
Today I’m not going to rail against the bankers. I’m not going to whine against the Fed, or call Wall street any dirty names. Nope, today I’m going to talk about something that seems to be missing from society lately. The concept of being a good person.
What brought this up? A few things, all bundled into a short period of time. First off, I learned quite late that a “friend” of ours had spent the hurricane and the next 16 days in the hospital. Suffering from an ulcer, he was overtaken with vomiting and actually tore his esophagus and collapsed a lung. He almost died.
Any time something like that strikes, it takes you by surprise and gives you that kick in the head to tell you “hey, slow down, remember your friends, say a kind word, etc.”
But it was my trip to the mechanic’s this week, that really got me pondering just how much society has appeared to change. Quite often when the conversation tends to focus on the typical mechanic, it can get pretty harsh. I’ve heard them called rip-off artists, and all manner of criminal. How many times do you hear someone say that some mechanic did 300 dollars worth of work only to find out he really only replaced a 20 dollar part that took him 20 minutes?
