As the Administration announces proposing new economic sanctions against a desperate North Korea, which already has been infested with starvation and illness, until they cry "uncle" regarding the nuclear situation.
We won't talk with them, but we will attempt to hasten their starvation. Hmmmmmm...., yeah! That's the story..., kick 'em when they are down. After all..., why do they need electricity? As Donnie Rumsfeld said, "Look South and you see masses of bright lights..., look North and you see blackness" (perhaps I misunderstood his comment?). See..., no need for electricity in the North.
We are so blessed with wonderful leadership!
Again..., this Administration is on the path to become the cause of the greatest amount of damage ever done to our Nation and the World.
Collectively...., we are involved in the dilemma of having poor leadership, but not knowing it.
Good luck to us all...........
REGARDING: Michael, When you make a mistake, and lose the wherewithal to support your argument, please don't litter the board with obfuscation and nonsense...
RESPONSE: Harvey..., that is just like you, i.e., not being specific. If there is a problem, please identify it clearly and state you disagreement, again, clearly and unambiguously.
A dialogue or debate is not benefitted if within a vacuum of knowledge or when one side ia replete with ambiguities.
~~Re: "above = gobblygoop"
Again, I am sorry for reacting childishly. ~~
Dear Mikey: What is it with you anyway? You obviously have a psychological disorder,(possibly several) so why do you constantly childishly berate someone, then several hours later apologize with such sincerity? Have you thought that changing your therapist may be what you need? Have you always been compulsive with your emotions? Would you like to tell us about it?
Re: "above = gobblygoop"
Again, I am sorry for reacting childishly. When someone zings me I react in kind and come back with childish behavior. My mother says It seems like I never graduated from the playground. At least I come to recognize it sometimes.
REGARDING: Whether the level of risk is high, or low, that alone does not cause an action to be, or not be, an investment.
RESPONSE: Above = gobblygoop
REGARDING: Whether it is a GOOD investment is of course a separate matter.
RESPONSE: Yeah! That's the story. That really clears it up. Ha, ha...., what does this have to do with anything??!
REGARDING: Mikie is attempting to confuse that.
RESPONSE: I make an effort to be clear and definite..., as I am not fond of ambiguities when it comes to investing.
It is hopeless to respond to mikie but, in case anyone else can't read, the statement referred to the over-discussed definition of "investment".
The point was: Whether the level of risk is high, or low, that alone does not cause an action to be, or not be, an investment.
Whether it is a GOOD investment is of course a separate matter.
Mikie is attempting to confuse that.
Harvey..., regarding my request:
Harvey..., please explain the "risk" one assumes by "parking" one's funds in 3-month T-bills.
Michael, I won't get into a "what is sex" argument with a progressive like yourself. If you can't define the risk, and its level, of a 3 month T Bill, you shouldn't be putting money to work in a gambling hall. And please, don't define it as "no risk". That would be irresponsible and contrary to your "scholarly" approach to life.
Harvey, is it impossible for you to clearly and definitively respond.., or is it that you don't understand my request?
I won't get into a "what is sex" argument with a progressive like yourself. If you can't define the risk, and its level, of a 3 month T Bill, you shouldn't be putting money to work in a gambling hall. And please, don't define it as "no risk".

Abodes, and mattresses, burn; are swept away in floods, tornadoes, and hurricanes; their owners die without telling anyone of valuables left in them; and thieves take money from mattresses.
If one were to compare our maps of today with those of (for example) 2,000 years ago, one would find many countries have ceased to exist. Their financial instruments, including those similar to T-bills, tend to die with them. Though this is not the best example, consider bonds and dollars issued by the Confederate States of America.
So there is risk in life, and there is also risk in ANY investment.
Having said that, it is irrelevent. The level of risk is not a factor in determining an action to be an investment.
Again, you are welcome.
