Re: Tankers attacked

Well I guess I finally found out what was meant by "American Linked". https://fabiusmaximus.com/2019/06/15/craig-murray-the-lies-about-iran/ According to this article the second ship was Norwegian with a crew half Russian and half Filipino. The first one was Japanese. So the American connection is o...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Wishing DJT a belated happy birthday. Just heard he turned 73 yesterday. I turned 70 4 days before and can't even imagine taking on the challenges he is faced with at that age. He's got Iran, North Korea, Russia, China, the border crisis, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera, not to mention a significant nu...

Re: 3 years of PP returns

I am now more than a decade into using the PP and am satisfied with the results (although I did switch to the Golden Butterfly a few years ago). It actually saw me through to my retirement and helped me meet my goals during that time so it's kind of like my old Dodge Caravan which I bought right aro...

Re: Tankers attacked

Reports say it was an "American-linked" tanker. What the hell does that mean? Funny thing is I thought this would be all over the T.V. news when I tuned in and I couldn't find a thing. I guess there are more important things to talk about ... https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/06/on-painting-air-fo...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Yes, I turned 70 two days ago (and get my first SS check next month). And for the record I'm a kick-ass 70 year old. Celebrated by doing a 200 mile bike ride with my son (actually it was originally supposed to be a 400 mile ride but still not too bad). Badass! What’s your secret? Discipline, or jus...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Disgusting, but absolutely expected. ::) I'm thinking wealthy people might start thinking twice before agreeing to be a college commencement speaker. Because of an "Instagram user?" Come on guys you're really reaching now. In other recent news, democrats ridiculed on Twitter for breathing. ::) Inst...

Looks like Mexico made a deal with the U.S. to avoid the tariff.

Maybe Trump actually knew what he was doing.
Great.

Now how long before some federal judge blocks the whole thing again?

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

Seems to me an ideal time for the PP to do well.

I don't know about the rest of you but I think I had my biggest one day gain ever today. Told my wife if we could do this every day it would be better than winning the lottery.

Re: FWOMX

I went to business school *not recently* and in the 1980s we were reading case histories that argued that companies that did not engage all of their employees fully performed worse. Why is that hard to believe? And why does it bother you? If I have a V8 engine, I need all eight to fire when needed....
