YOU OWE $163.000.00

If you are employed full time, as about 127 million Americans are, each of you owe $163 thousand dollars (above and beyond the taxes you are already paying) to square up America’s accounts.

SELLING CORPORATES. MORE BILL/HILLARY CORRUPTION

February 8, 2018 We SOLD two of the corporate bonds in the Core Portfolio:  ARES and Aflac. They were paying 3+% yield which was low and they were declining in price due to potential higher interest rates.  (But we did sell at a higher price than we paid, and we also have been getting the […]
