  4. Gee could that be why nsiders have been dumping stocks at a pace never seen before? It is all rigged and the big guys have been selling like crazy. Meanwhile CNBC tries to tell you it is just because taxes are going to go up. Right.

  5. If I were to bet on this country today….

    It would be quite different than any bet I would have made years ago.

  6. Home ownership?
    Moving the goal posts a little further out; it’s what greedy bastards and tyrannical governments do.
