    He supported Putin against the United States. Against what Our Government Security says.

    I think Donald Trump has a new name.

    Donald "Benedict Arnold." Trump, the second American Traitor to the United States.

    That would be Treason.
    So Trump's meeting with Putin is treason, but Obama's treaty-that-is-not-a-treaty with Iran is not?

    BTW, I did not vote for Trump or Clinton.

    No one is more effective at taking down Trump than Republican Neil Cavuto, here he is in another classic take down of Trump.

    OK, thanks for the info. Using up capital losses is always a sound strategy, even if you just rinse the loss and buy back the same stocks after the 60 days are up. I, however, sold nothing in 2009. I bought my ass off and it paid off so much, I was able to retire five years earlier than I had planned to. I shifted enough money into the short- to intermediate-term paper to cover my expenses until Dump's first (and last, IMO) term is over. I do not personally believe in any form of market timing so all I did was shorten the duration of my bond portfolio. Assholes come and go but the road to wealth will always be paved with equities.

    As you probably know, during a bull market in bonds, because the long-term bonds go up in value proportionately more than the short-term bonds, it leads to an increase in the duration of the bond portfolio, so this action on my part corrected that. Plus, just as I am on a 'glide path' with stocks where I reduce my allocation to equities by one percentage point every year, I am on a duration 'glide path' where I reduce my duration by 0.1 years every year.

    But also, fuck Trump.

    I am not even bothering with the short-term bonds. I just tried to figure out every major expense that I would have over the next three years and raised the cash in January. It includes cash for a house remodel, new car, brother's, going on 18 years, drunken binge in Bangkok, private school tuition for a daughter of one of our friends etc. The cost was that I used up all my capital gains tax loss carry forwards that I hoarded since the 2008 recession. I hope I am wrong. I still make money if the market goes up just not as much as I would with my normal allocation to cash.

    Immunize is not what I did although it was what I thought about when i initiated my action. I would have to go back to the old Finance text books to remember the correct way to immunize and I am not that into it any more. I haven't bought or sold an option since 2005. I will lose net worth on paper if the market crashes but hopefully I can outlast it. I think my strategy is better called "playing it safe.".

    What cover up? Hillary Clinton? Please indict her? If there is a crime, let's get to the bottom of it. I voted for her. You will not hurt my feelings. I think the Trump's followers get more mileage talking about these fantasies than actually doing anything.

    I recommend everybody immunize their portfolio against craziness for the next 6 years. Actually I only did three years but I think Trump will win again. . It cost me a bunch of money as insurance usually does but at least you do not need to worry about the day-to-day craziness and you will have money to travel and monger.

    McCabe

Start receiving his pension while he is working at another high paying job. I know one guy that triple dipped. High ranking police officer for a major metropolis, police chief at small suburban city and then appointed a traffic court judge which I think is at the County level.

    I'd be more inclined to reply in an educated manner to a post that demonstrated some education, such as proper capitalization, use of coherent paragraphs, spelling presidential candidates' names correctly, and not hitting the return key at the end of every sentence. So to reply in a somewhat less educated fashion, you are an ignorant, uneducated, racist pimp and I am quite glad that you were deported from my native country back to your native country. You are an intelligent person who has fucked up his life on two continents. You are a person who has the skills to be gainfully employed but who chooses to live off the charity of relatives and by pimping. So isn't that a form of socialism? The strong subsidizing the weak? Your family letting you live rent free because you are too lazy to work? You say this about communism being the source of all problems and you don't know Karl Marx from Groucho Marx.

    Wouldn't This Undeserving World be a Much Better Place if Gen. Patton had Finished the Mission ?

    As a side note, in the 1928 elections in Germany the Nazi party received about 2.5% of the vote and was in shambles. Hitler's plan to gain power by the ballot box rather than by force was a failure, times were good, thanks to US loans, and his message fell on deaf ears. Then came the Depression, the US recalled the loans and the Germany economy collapsed. Another election was called in 1930 and now Hitler was regarded as a prophet and the Nazi's got over 40% of the vote.

    At least this is the way I remember it, but then maybe my memory is no longer accurate due to my advanced years.

    Sorry for being a pedant, but in the 1930 Federal Election Hitler got 18.25% of the vote, not over 40%.

    Shockingly, I agree with Don B. Smoot-Hawley could have been the worst piece of legislation in the entire 20th century, and although the depression had myriad causes (90% margin on stocks was another big one), I would also point to S-H as the most important single cause. Trump is poorly and narrowly educated in general in comparison to most recent presidents. Clinton studied economics at Oxford for a while, and Bush I majored in it and was Phi Beta Kappa. Trump has his head up his ass, and needs to read Ricardo on comparative advantage, as well as Adam Smith's Treatise on Silver, which is probably the second-hardest thing I ever worked my through. The hardest thing I ever read, took me six months, was Don Quijote in the original early seventeenth century Spanish.

    Oh, and Donald, I mean David Ricardo and not Ricky Ricardo.
