Look At How Much Better I Am — Richer Than You

I had a grande day today. It wasn’t supposed to be this good; but then again, the rich are always entreated to afternoon delights. I was in my study toiling away doing Capstone after Capstone conferences, and then all of my stocks went higher, almost in unison. While this was transpiring, Joe Blow was getting his brains frozen in Chicago, trying to buy a pair of mittens at the local bodega.

Here in Princeton, NJ, I was comforted by a pleasant glowing fire and the subtle sounds of old oak creaking throughout my expansive home. All of the rugs tidy and ornately designed, perfectly matching my imported furniture and blending in beautifully with the neutral colored walls racing throughout the house, skipped over every 20 feet or so by thickly gilded picture frames around oil paintings. If you get close enough, you can sometimes smell the oil, or perhaps imagine it.

I even bought a rather low brow CBD-Coffee company today, for only 5 or 6 cents. It was something given to me by a member of Exodus and I cannot share it with you — because it’s for members only.

Ah, the feeling of triumph after a short and easy fought battle. Some of us were chosen to win and others to rot away, salting the earth with our refuse. “The Fly” is a genetically superior being, gifted and blessed with the smarts of a scientist — personality of a celebrated entertainer.

My three biggest winners today were APHA, JVA, DTEA, and of course NUGT — a 10% position of mine. I am quite affable while offering you my insight and generous, charitable even. I am the nicest person that I know — and that’s because I have nothing to worry about, no trials or tribulations, no hard fought battles, nothing but steak dinners and well crafted cocktails — friends and laughter — a buoyancy in the quality of my life that can only be expressed through the grande and loquacious missives of the vainglorious Fly.

    Ah so you’ve entered the sewer and started buying CBD penny stocks have you? Good for you Old Sport.

    Your fireplace is a gas fire, isn’t it? For some reason I don’t see you putting on leather gloves, chopping and stacking wood, carrying said wood around and then lighting it on fire. But I do hope I’m wrong about that.

    Democrats swept the House with high Millenial turnout. Their thanks:

    House Democrats Unveil Social Security Expansion Bill
    ” Larson estimates that the new benefit formula would **increase the average payout** by 2 percent. His legislation **would not change the age** at which a retiree can collect benefits…Larson’s legislation would also **raise the payroll tax** by 1.2 percentage points on both employees and employers, phasing in the change over 24 years.”

    I guess the Baby Boomers aren’t done screwing over everybody else. There’s 200 Democrats in the House supporting this, so the Republicans will have to save the Millenails on this one. How ironic.

      Generational conflict is destined to get hotter when the economy make some inevitable adjustments. Anyway, too bad that sapiens always emotionally generalize instead of engaging in math.

      Hey Numbers, may I remind you that the boomers got this Social Security money taken out of their hard earned paychecks all along their working lifetime. It’s not their fault that the crooks in the government kept dipping their slimey hands into the cookie jar all these years. Now it’s time to pay up as promised by the Democrat FDR! I for one want to abolish the social security and let us keep our money and plan our own retirement as we see fit.

        cancel19,
        Boomers were overpromised, so now they expect to take out in MORE than they put in. In other to get what they feel due, they want to take it from future generations.

        Also, the whole thing about the “cookie jar” demonstartes a lack of understanding of how SS works:
        1) The payroll tax goes in the SS fund.
        2) If the SS fund was not invested, it would earn 0% interst and would have been drained decades ago.
        3) SS invests in Tresury Bonds because of their low risks – and no commissions to Wall Street
        4) If SS payements exceed payrol tax income, SS just sells some of the Treasury Bonds

        Also,
        1) Like all income from Treasury Bonds, the federal Govt spends it as Congress directs.
        2) Without SS buying bonds, interest rates would be much higher (supply and demand)

          Numbers, Many Presidents have been “borrowing” from Social Security. Fact!

          And if Boomers were over promised by the government then place the blame on your government and not say that the boomers are ruining future generations. It is your government that can’t and will not do the math right and is responsible for the shit show.

    BCCI should have been bought at the beginning of the ramp not now after 300%. That’s obvious. Others pennys will eventually run xxx% on the coffee/hemp trend this year ,no wise man would need your very-bad penny stock pick service (about mj penny stock?). Besides this between you and raul I cant choose who’s the worst market timer
