Man, did I screw up regarding interest rates. First, buying into TMV. And then later, building my retirement home earlier this year. I got a 4.875% on a 30-year loan. Anything under 5% would be good, in my opinion. But still. Oh well, I hope to pay off that loan in a few years anyway.
But WTF? Talk of default and TMV goes down? It's like people seeking shelter from a theater fire in cardboard boxes in the kitchen. You would think that any, ANY, talk of a U.S. default would spike TMV like a brownie in Spicoli's house.
