It is quite obvious my loyal subjects miss/need me. I rarely come here anymore as I deal with Neonatologist after Neonatologist tell me my son is a mystery. The whole doctor rotation thing is one of the most ridiculous concepts in modern medicine by the way. So I’ll just leave you with some Jesus:
This just entered my inbox….history, son.
Update, as requested:
I am eternally moved by the outpouring of grace and concern that has billowed in these holy parts of the world wide web that is iBankCoin. My youngest is doing much better, as they have taken him off oxygen today. His ascites is under control with Lasix but we still have no answers. Several tests are outstanding, including specific genetic testing relating to Lysosomal Storage Diseases (If anyone has any experiences with these I would greatly appreciate some insight). Testing for the LSD’s is essentially the last thing they are looking for as every other test has come back negative. They are very rare and dangerous diseases making the wait that much more unbearable. I ask for your continued prayers, chants, hymns, etc.
This PICC line in the side of his head was finally taken out as well this week:
I humbly ask for your prayers, good thoughts, sacrifices or whatever you do for my littlest one. This is extremely out of my nature to ask and share such personal situations publicly but this guy needs anything he can get. He coded yesterday and the doctors have ran every test under the sun to no avail. He has an abnormal amount of fluid in his belly and his liver is slightly enlarged. This will most likely be my final post, as I need to get with Le Fly and discuss the possibility of a special election for a new tabbed blogger. Thank you all for the kind words and messages I have received. To make this finance related, the people’s portfolio is updated here and, obviously, there will be a delay in getting around to @reformedbroker’s book review.
LADIES & GENTLEMEN OF iBC:
THE GREATEST WESTERN EVER -
My legionaries went long $GC_F this morning at 1670.70 and what a terrible miscalculation that was. Trading systems can slit your throat around news releases obviously. This happend today with my stop hit within a hour or so at 1650. The charts below show $DGP, which is a gold double long ETN I like to look at. It may bounce here but probably too risky for my taste.
You can also see below the 240min chart of $GC_F that shows the last few trades taken:
I did close out one QQQ spread today at 3.75. Your portfolio is updated here and you can always follow me on twitter @MAXIMUS_iBC for roman greatness.
UPDATE: I am now back long at 1646.40
I am blessed, I am lucky and I am thankful. I was able to tuck two of my children into bed last night, while my wife took duties at the hospital with the third. The parents of those twenty innocent children were not as fortunate. They felt the agony and despair of looking into an empty room; a painful reminder of what a madman is capable of. With this grief and the unbearable weight of burying your own child, these parents are now the victims of the insanely, overdramatic media and the insensitivity of politicians with their egos’ believing they can stop such tragedy.
The traitors that run the modern bureaucratic state consider themselves more like architects of a rational society and believe they can govern our reality comprehensively so everyone is included. This type of thinking leads to authoritative government and defies human nature. The framers of the constitution understood this line of reasoning and implemented divisions on government to provide checks to limit the institution for this reason. James Madison wrote specifically about the 2nd Amendment in Federalist Paper #46, in which he made it clear that the right of the citizenry to bear arms is a necessity against tyranny and is an integral part of the system of checks and balances. Granted, semi-automatic rifles were not invented then but to propose a ban on ALL guns is a direct attempt to exert a means of control over the population and limit the systems of checks and balances.
The mass shootings that have occurred over the last several years are extremely horrifying and tragic events. As humans, we need reasons and justifications for such treacherous acts of violence, whether it be to place blame on the availability of guns or the lack of quality parenting at home. We rarely look at ourselves as possibly the issue. How do we value human life? How do we treat are neighbors? Do we help the less fortunate? We can debate all we want whether this is a gun control or mental illness issue but the reality is, like I said here, we live in a very unsafe and cruel world. That is why I have my CCW, plain and simple and this is why we cannot let our own government take away the 2nd Amendment:
I do not know what can prevent such tragedies like Sandy Hook but usually the initial response is the wrong one.
