Study history -- even recent history -- and learn from it. Then take steps to mitigate what happens to keep you and your family safe. To me, that's akin to buying an insurance policy; it's not been overly gloomy.
You are a pragmatist with a touch of optimism.

Pragmatist, yes. Optimist...I try, but I don't always succeed. There's a lot of really awful nonsense of history-making proportions going on, and insulating me and my family from the effects is an ongoing chore. I guess I'm optimistic because I keep meeting people who get it and are also taking steps to avoid whatever fallout might come their way.

China:

?For the U.S. to undertake a second round of quantitative easing at this time we feel is not recognizing the responsibility it should take as a reserve currency issuer, and not taking into account the effect of this excessive liquidity on emerging-market economies,? Vice Finance Minister Zhu Guangyao told reporters at a press conference in Beijing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Speaking of China.....the pot is boiling over. They ain't the only ones, Germany says US is "clueless"....that, an official statement???? you have to know they are pissed.

O, the Regime, US, Fed, is screwing with the big boys....ain't Chicago no more....
