We are certainly mid to late in this economic cycle. Fed policy has helped to inflate the price of equities due to low interest rates. The market is pretty fully valued, so beware. I am holding and paying attention to dividend yield. Uber, Facebook, Tesla. They are all grossly overvalued. I like stocks other people hate. Big oil, Walmart, Altria, Monsanto.

Because I have only had one problem to date. I went nuts one month and downloaded probably over 350gb. Not including streaming. TimeWarner throttled me. I paid $6/month for a vpn for 3 months and then after that no throttling, so I stopped vpn. That was 6 years ago. I still have TW. When I get throttled again or receive some c&c letter, then I get the vpn again. Why pay when I don't need it?


Comment: If I were Musk (Score -1) 131

If I were Mr. Musk, I wouldn't get too distracted. Tesla reported a miserable quarter. They managed to sell a paltry 123 cars in China! Toyota and BMW are hot on his heels heels. Any more reports like that and sentiment will drain from Tesla as his most argent fanbois lose faith.

General Patton had it right. The destruction dismemberment of Russia was WWII's great and tragic unfinished task. After a 25 year hiatus it is time for the US to set to work again. We start by strangling Russia's economy, and continue by arming its enemies on indefensible borders. They will find that Russia's army is nothing but drunken conscripts more ready to flee than fight. When Putin cracks, and he will, we take western Alaska (which some mistakenly call Siberia) and give our European and Japanese allies their portion. God bless the Jewish people!
