Re: Left vs. Right /Wayne
I want to mention your post from 11:40am today to refute what you just said about "trickle down" working.
Investors are static in the consumption world.
Actually, based on the empirical evidence on display now, consumption (except for food and beverage) is very low....and look at what that has done to bonds and stocks......I do not count all that is financed as those things are not really owned. I agree with how you live, having cash ready to arbitrage logistical opportunities. I do that on a small scale in an area in which I have alot of knowledge. I always also buy on sale at end-of-season sales for future known consumption/selling items. I also buy from one zip code and arb to another zip code that pays more.
I also wish to complain about the USPS (Post Office). I don't like paying high costs to ship while the USPS loses money on Amazon, China vendors, etc.. This is crooked and done on purpose to favor political agenda. I also don't like subsidizing low drug prices for Canada, Mexico, etc. while I pay through the nose for the same drugs in the US.
and another thing...
WalMart = The Company Store
