thank you for your response. It wasn't a rant or something stupid. I appreciated the civility.
I have sold some of my ARLP and I have been writing tight covered calls (wrote covered calls at 17.5 on ahgp and 35 on arlp, they were tight when I wrote them, not so tight now) on both my ahgp and arlp. I also own several short ETFs (SKF and DXD). So, I am pretty defensive. I am trying to eak out a small gain, but I am not optimistic with Pelosi and Reid setting the agenda.
