    Russia “is without question our number one geopolitical foe,” Romney said

    How many American troops has Russia killed in the last decade?

    Does he want you to believe that? Romney the Muppett-master of the GOP Genuflectors.

    ‘… column pointed out, companies are poor market-timers, using more of their cashflow to buy back shares when the stockmarket was high, not low. As Andrew Lapthorne of Societe Generale points out in a new note….”

    Oh… but those company insiders are great market timing tools… right? LOL.

    Nobody knows. Nobody knows the future. It is statistically impossible to profitably time the market consistently, period. And when the plurality of people figure this out, high-priced financial advice will be relegated to the Bible Belt, rural communities and trailer parks, where the USS-Ronald-Reagan-cap-wearing shills are currently duped by the GOP Media Machine, evangelical television, and X-ray-vision-glasses purveyors.
