July 18, 2019. We are buying ECC which pays over 13%. With this high rate of return, you know this position is riskier than most of the Core Portfolio positions. It is a high quality fund with high quality management. ECC has recently declined and is now ‘on sale’. Do NOT buy more than 2% of your portfolio.

Baby boomers and the older generations will probably never experience the devastating effects of the ballooning USA debt. But the children and their children are in trouble, and don’t even know it.

We encourage you to read this article.


We stumbled across this YouTube video. Who doesn’t want to increase their credit score??? These are very good tips and you should look at this.

What is U.S. electricity generation by energy source?

In 2018, about 4,178 billion kilowatthours (kWh) (or 4.18 trillion kWh) of electricity were generated at utility-scale electricity generation facilities in the United States.1 About 63% of this electricity generation was from fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, petroleum, and other gases). About 20% was from nuclear energy, and about 17% was from renewable energy sources. The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that an additional 30 billion kWh of electricity generation was from small-scale solar photovoltaic systems in 2018.2
