"If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you;
but if you really make them think, they'll hate you."
-- Don Marquis --


Piper asked me yesterday if I'd sold the remaining stock for buying the new house. I said not yet, but since the builder was having it inspected that day for the occupancy permit, closing will be soon, and I'd have to sell the stock soon. Piper advised me to hold off as long as I could.

Now, Piper is one of those super conservative ditto-heads who parrots political crap without thinking about what he's saying. He and his Wall Street cronies exemplify "I've got mine; screw you."

What he said next left an opening a mile wide, and he didn't see the incoming missile until it hit.

He said,"Hold off as long as you can, because I 100% guarantee that after the mid-term elections and the Republicans are back in control of Congress, the market will shoot back up."

I replied, "Well, I can't wait that long. I'm going to be forced to sell while the Republicans are still holding the market down to scare people into voting for them."

Boom! Direct hit.
