shoeshineboy(Pictured: Shoeshine Boy In New York City Circa 1924)

The anecdote goes that avid investor Joe Kennedy was on his way to work in the winter of 1928 and stopped to have his shoes shined. When the shoeshine boy finished he offered up a tip to Kennedy.

“Buy Hindenburg,” he told the millionaire.

Kennedy soon unloaded most of his holdings. When pressed by friends and associates about his reason for selling, Kennedy quipped:

“You know it’s time to sell when shoeshine boys give you stock tips. This bull market is over.”

Less than a year later stock markets around the world collapsed, leaving tens of millions of people impoverished for decades to come.

Kennedy knew something was wrong when everyone, including a shoeshine boy, was talking about the stock market as some sort of magical money making tree.

While the circumstances today may not be exactly like those of the 1920’s, one can’t help but see the similarities.

And though we don’t know of any shoeshine boys giving stock tips today, the following CNBC segment offers a similar warning of market exuberance and irrationality.  In it, several well known financial pundits discuss a new strategy that can help you generate serious gains.

As we all know it takes money to make money. But where do you get your investment capital?

Take out a loan, of course, because stock market prices, like real estate values, can only go up from here.

Watch below as Bill Griffeth and Kelly Evans host WSJ’s Jonathan Clements and Premier Financial Advisors’ Mark Martiak for a discussion on what we’re calling the car-stock arbitrage wherein you are (literally) encouraged to take out a 7 year loan with a rapidly amortizing asset as collateral in order to buy stocks. (Zero Hedge)

Wall Street Journal financial columnist Jonathan Clements explains how you, too, can make money in a stock market that has reached all-time highs:

I think it’s a reasonable trade-off. You know, borrow at three or four percent and then go up and invest in the stock market. I wouldn’t actually really be that concerned about whether the car is going to depreciate or not. Yeah, we know the car is going to lose half of its value in the first four years…

The question is ‘what is the better financial transaction to do?’

And if you take a holistic view of your finances, yeah you probably want to take out that loan and invest in equities.

There you have it.

Oh, and when you do get that low interest loan, don’t forget to “Buy Hindenburg.”

President Trump is Breaking Down the Neck of the Federal Reserve!

He wants zero rates and QE4!

You must prepare for the financial reset

    Some advisors are ‘just not right’….

    You are only as good as the people you listen and act on.
    Scary thought???

    • FuckingPissed says:

      Water, food, gold, silver, ammo, medications, etc….. Good investments.

      • Mountain Trekker says:

        Check out Cheaper Than Dirt, good buy on old surplus 50BMG ammo. This may be a good investment even if you don’t have a 50BMG. If you think 556 green tip is to small, this maybe just what your looking for. You can bet this is real AP. Trekker Out. Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum!

        • sixpack says:

          I don’t know a damned thing about the stock market, but “a 7 year loan with a rapidly amortizing asset as collateral” doesn’t sound feasible to me, unless you want to lose your shirt in the end.

          It does sound like a boon for the banks who give out the loans, though, when you can’t pay, they get your collateral, is that how it works?

          • durangokidd says:

            “And if you take a holistic view of your finances, yeah you probably want to take out that loan and invest in equities.”

            A sure sign the bubble is about to burst. 🙁

          • apache54 says:

            the only time banksters EVER tell you take out a LOAN to play the stock market is when they are in the final stages of collapse and there is nothing more to do!also look at the fake employment numbers and the couch potato’s are thinking all is well! what a bunch of crap, and the scary part is how many people think all is well.

          • Pissed Off Granny says:

            Anyone try to get a “loan” for anything right now?

            What bankster in his right? mind would make you a loan without enough collateral to back it up to invest that loan in the stock market? And, as this article seems to suggest, there are American idiots that would risk there last dime on borrowed money put in the stock market? If so, we are a nation of doomed idiots.

            This BS subject seems to suggest we have run out of real subject matter.

            The brokers suggesting this scheme should be forced to get in line on a balcony on a 21st floor high rise. NEXT!

            • Pissed Off Granny says:

              UH OH:

              “there” last dime

              “their” last dime

              Because the word police are watching…….

            • tayronachan says:

              Look at the declining volume on the DOW over the last 10 years or so. Declining volume on a rising stock market is not normally a good sign. But, the flip side is that globally, money is moving into the US stock market as it is perceived to be a safe haven, considering that most of the rest of the world is on fire in one way or another.

            • Maverick says:

              Howdy, Granny. I agree there are idiots left and right who would do such a thing. No loans for me for anything, ever!

        • bootbak says:

          I wouldn’t send those traitorous bastards one thin damn dime. After the shit they pulled during the Sandy Hook Fiasco. In case you have forgotten they were one of the first to stop selling firearms and jacked their ammo and mag prices so high following the shootings all because of some govt and media whining. They are not true supporters of the 2nd amendment.

      • Secret Squirrel says:

        Yup, went to get my weekly handfull of gold eagles today, noticed they started selling .999 copper ounces, they look like big copper buffalos, not sure why but I grabbed a hand full of those too.. I figure raw copper has many uses and when resources run low they might actually have a barter value, also thinking of maybe hammering one out into a sheet, maybe try and make some bronze, just to expand my skills.

      An old axiom is never invest in anything that you
      don’t know more about than the other “expert.”

    • Acid Etch says:

      Where are the fucking jobs?

      I am sick and tired of Americans being demeaned and disrespected, offered only menial shit jobs that insult the intelligence and cater to the mediocre and not the achiever in us.

      Where the fuck are we going to put all these fucking immigrants that these stupid fucking soccer moms have to have?

      Why do we have a government hell bent on putting its boot on the fucking throat of the job providers and then baffled as to why the fucking economy isn’t working?

      Why do we have a piece of shit education system that produces worker bees and not dreamers and thinkers?

      WHERE ARE THE FUCKING JOBS?

      • KILLCEN says:

        Good question, the answer: Obama was selected by the fascist elites to become prez to do three major things (one of them he has failed to do so far) 1. destroy global trust in the petro-dollar (which was not too hard to do, all it takes is an illegitimate war and some arrogance to piss off other superpowers eg. Russia-China) 2. disarm the American people (and good luck with that, btw) and 3. to push through (or in this case, force through) amnesty to further divide and bankrupt America.

        I do believe this has been a rather successful communist takeover to say the least … but remember, we still out-gun them 10-1 and THAT these motherfuckers are afraid of! If worse comes to worse, my recommendation is DO NOT ever cower to gun control, ever – we would be better off dead in that case, trust me.

      • sixpack says:

        You should have a few dozen green thumbs on this comment, but it doesn’t look like they’re working right now….much like a good percentage of the country…

      • Jim in Va. says:

        Acid; Nobody ever gave anyone a job. you have to go after it and train yourself for the job you want. Do something that people or businesses want and can’t be sent overseas. You don’t solve the problem by paying hamburger flippers 20 bucks an hour because those people will never move up. Who would buy the burger they made? Who could afford it?

        • Old Guy says:

          You make money by solving problems. If you cant solve a problem and make money for your employer he don’t need you. and the destruction of the jobs economy ect. it was all done on purpose. The USA is dying with policy that is equal to death by a thousand cuts.

      • Try using a dictionary and find words that more correctly express your position or concerns, Education and competent use of language are better keys for change both in yourself and those around you.

      • Maverick says:

        Acid, damn good questions. That’s a great post you made.

      • tomatero says:

        What are you complaining about? The US economy just reated
        265000 new jobs !!!!

    • Acid Etch says:

      Tip: I always carry bear repellent spray in the woods.

      A balaclava is better than a cap and gaiter combination in the woods.

      A fixed blade is better than a folder in the woods.

      I keep animals away by marking the trails I built with my piss and my semen.

      That’s right, I build my own fucking trails through the woods. The parks and rec department aint gonna like it.

      Fuck ’em.

    • Burt Gummer says:

      Yeah! Listen to eppe. …hmmm…

    • John_Allen says:

      eppe–

      Those “mainstream financial experts” should give their hot virgin daughters and a fifth of whiskey to the town bad boys on Friday night. What could possibly go wrong?

    • Miss DeeDee says:

      Hello Eppe,
      Hope you are well. This day’s topic reminds me of a strategy or gameplay a male friend of mine told me he uses some 40 yrs ago when I was in my 20’s. I was young and full of Christian values. I thought him to be criminally deceitful and outright immoral. His philosophy was that if someone was stupid enough to lend him money, then it’s their problem to figure out how to collect. Many years later he has claimed bankrupt 3 times. Sent 4 children to college, owns a beachfront home on Cape Cod (not in his name) and collects a maximum amount from the government’s programs.I on the other hand ,put myself thru masters degrees and the teaching and medical field have treated me well. The problem I see is that some times I feel as though I have no pot to pissed in.I wonder sometimes if I had it to do all over again would I borrow more than I could afford and buy Microsoft like I could and should have.
      —Take Care – I miss you.
      Miss Dee Dee

      Our heros in blue protecting and serving. Support our troops now, y’hear? Especially when your children are being gunned down by them, you stupid fucking old people.

      Teach your kids that fucking pig vermin are mentally unstable and should never be called cooperated with or spoken to.

    • Nobama says:

      “Take Out A Loan And Invest In Stock Markets”

      Worst advice ever, for you and me anyway. Great for the banksters though so they can own you.

    • The “advisors” have been told by TPTB to round up the heard so they can be totally destroyed financially. Anytime the government tells you to trun left you better go right and vise versa. Our government has been taken over and there is NO rule of law. Get prepared for hard times. Trust in Jesus and not the government.

  2. TheGuy says:

    I only WISH he had a point.

    Ever look at the interest rates CD’s are pulling today? You’re bleeding out. Fairly rapidly I might add. Certainly non-trivially so.

    So I mean… I see what he’s TRYING to say but this is sort of like wishing more than it is sound advice.

  3. Kulafarmer says:

    Onr reason i want everything to collapse is so i can see idiots like these financial advisors squirm as they lose ever last dime they own, and then some, only problem is they most likely wont be trying to fly off of highrises like in the big cras.

  4. Captain Crunch says:

    Wow – that’s the dumbest “advice” I’ve ever read

  5. the java junkie says:

    Why anyone would be into the market in the first place is beyond my comprehension. your totally dependent on some c.e.o / person to do the right thing amongst other forces. Personally I prefer tangible things like gold silver guns and ammo land is always good too. If I cant touch it feel it see it or use it every day its probably not a very good idea to purchase it. No way in hell will I go into debt for a piece of paper/ promise!!!

    • Kevin2 says:

      I did real well investing and bailed out in Feb 2007. I did not realize the capacity of the banking establishment to re-inflate that balloon. I missed a huge rise. That being said its way too late now to get back in except in limited amounts and for very short periods.

  6. maddog says:

    I remember a bunch of idiots doing this with houses a few years ago. Buying houses on interest only loans. Some we’re even bumping the value of the house to take a second mortgage for a down payment on a house they couldn’t afford. In addition banksters were loaning to any shitbag with a heartbeat and then cried they were to big to fail. Then I remember them crying the houses we’re being taken away for non-payment after prices collapsed 50 – 70% and somehow MY taxes were to be used to pay for their houses and bad loans. I’m sure bailout will be the word of the day after this as well. I miss America.

  7. Kevin2 says:

    Buying stocks on credit and leverage were two of the root causes of the crash of 1929.

    “Those that do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it”.

  8. Sure, get ya in deep debit, pass a law stating those in debit must report to your nearest FEMA camp for work to pay off the debit…Its a win win for the aholes….and just who was it that said we MUST earn a living?? Earn from who? God maybe, but not some physco…Life is a gift…a freebie if you will.

  9. Satori says:

    oh I’m investing alright

    but I’m taking David Stockman’s advice

    “”people need to buy ANYTHING that Ben Bernanke cannot destroy. I would highly recommend buying Gold, bottled water, and canned goods”.

  10. peckerwood says:

    that’s just wrong…

    ;0( the sad thing is some poor gentile goyim sucker of a Darwin Award Winner will do just as he advises!

    wrecking his life as a zog amerikan tax debt slave and potentially his family economic future.

    this is wrong at so many levels.

  11. Ass hat says:

    Why would I take out a loan and invest in the lottery the odds are stacked against me. Fuck em all I’m gonna stay debt free and keep my $. When it crashes and it’s time to rebuild then my $ will come out I will buy property and whatever I can resell later for pennies on the dollar. When it all crashes down average folks will do well the market barons are fucked right now they want you to get a loan and go in and bail them out no thanx. I worked and got a weekly paycheck while they were gambling to get the payroll for their employees. Who’s the smart one now ha. I did the right thing by not having any costly habits and hoarding $ and supply’s. Good luck suckers.

    “Seven year auto loan”

    HOLYCOW!
    I need to buy a new work truck this year , i cannot imagine payin for seven years !
    Damn thing would need replacing before it was paid for.
    Ever try to find one with rubber floors and manual windows , vinyl seats ?
    I just dont know how someone can spend 50k on a work truck, and who needs all the gadgets anyway , its just another damn tool !

    Talk about bad investments , theres one .

    • Orion says:

      Hey Hammer…. I picked up a real nice, super clean 07′ GMC 2500HD with a 6.0L back in 2011’… Only had 17k miles… Hard bed cover, aftermarket aluminum wheels. Got it for less than a quarter of a new one. Manual windows, manual door locks, rubber floors no carpet. Cold ass a/c and nice stereo.

      Dealer told me that the thing is, nobody wants a truck like this because it lacks the lack of creature comforts.

      I told him I was ok with it… He found that amusing. I then told him how I found it amusing that there were so many dumbasses out there willing to pay 50k to 60k for a truck made in Mexico!

      GM Silao Plant

      Guanajuato, Mexico

      20° 56.914′, -101° 23.057′

      Google it if you don’t believe me!

    • Hammer's Thor says:

      This is why vehicles now cost so much. I guarantee that they would be half the price and just as good if you could only buy with cash. Financing has been one of the worst things people have learned to do. Just like school loans. Eliminate school loans, and the cost of college goes way down. Anyone who borrows money is paying for the privilege of allowing someone else to sit on their fat ass and produce nothing.

    • Rebel in Idaho says:

      I just bought a “new” truck recently. I bought a 92 dodge dakota 4×4, everything works except the radio and I don’t listen to it anyway. $1200 cash. Runs great, shift on the fly 4×4 works no problem, and plus it just looks like a truck that has actually been used for real work.

      With my “new” truck, like most of my tools, I consider the tool itself and the time it took to learn how to use them the investment. Maintenance is another good investment, though my ROI was probably highest on the beer I bought my buddy who was an auto-mechanic.

  13. hammerhead says:

    Another potential investment, i would take some advice on.
    I’m lookin at a KelTec sub 2000 in 9mm.
    It folds in the middle for storage and i thought it would be a good addition to my get home bag.
    Anyone got experience with this gun ?

    • Kulafarmer says:

      Mossberg 500 JIC with pistol grip and 16″ bbl
      Way cheaper, way more effective

    • Sharon says:

      If I were looking at the 9mm caliber of carbines, and on a limited budget, I’d first look at the Hi Point.

      They are ugly, really ugly, and the only thing they really have going for them is extreme dependability and ruggedness and such combined with low price (300 dollar range or less new if you shop a bit and I’ve seen used sometimes go for a bit over a hundred).

      But they are ugly, and no one wants (to shoot something with) an ugly gun.

      You could also get a high point 9mm pistol to go with it if you want, the carbine mags will fit the pistol but the pistol mags don’t fit the carbine because they’re too short.

      But those are ugly too.

      Of course, if you shoot someone with one in a total SHTF defensive situation you don’t have to tell anyone what you used, and you can always keep it out of the sight of your friends at the rifle range and such if you don’t end up in that situation.

      So if you only want the best high reliability firearm for the price and don’t want to worry about getting it dinged and grundged up since it won’t make it look much worse anyway go the High Point, but if you’ve got plenty of money the Beretta CX4 and corresponding full size pistol (compact mags are too short) and you have something you can brag about, keep safely in a case where it will stay pretty and proudly show off – and all for only a little over twice the price.

      FWIW, I’m not a KelTech fan but I’ve only owned a pistol and its ergonomics were wrong for me (It did work well enough though). I don’t like that folding idea, seems like something that, at best, delays getting it into action in an emergency situation and complicates things since it can’t be fired from a folded position.

      • hammerhead says:

        This gun is for survival , not my first choice for anything really except just to have a firearm with me that dont require government permission.
        If i gotta walk 30 miles home i dont want a handgun and i dont want a cannon , so , if i can determine that KelTec stuff is reliable , i would buy it.
        Lightweight and folds to (i think) 16in .
        So its a good bag gun .

        • Hunter says:

          HammerHead–>

          Bought mine about 6years ago…mainly ‘cuz my wife loved it & it was on sale!!!
          Have put thousands of rds. thru it w/o problems..it devours everything from 115gr.FMJ to 147gr.HP..however, it “does NOT LIKE” cheap mags..mine is a Glock version, so I stick w/ Glock magazines. IMO…she’s a keeper!

          Hope this helps…

        • Jim in Va. says:

          Ruger has a nice 10/22 breakdown model in .22 cal. Great in the backpack.Rugged gun and accurate.

          • Rebel in Idaho says:

            Loved the ruger takedown so much I now have 3, for the oldest three kids. We are adjacent to BLM property and the kids take them with them all the time in the packs that come with them when they go hiking and exploring through the woods down by the river.

            I’ll second what Jim said.

          • Foxglove666 says:

            Got a 10/22 takedown in the BOB and a springield xd 9mm for belt. I prefer xd’s as they fit my hands better than anything else out there.

        • falloutboy says:

          do not buy a kel-tec POS guns I have owned 3 of the p-11 all 3 failed all so I have had more of these in the guns in varies models in the shop for repairs than I can count

      • sixpack says:

        “and no one wants (to shoot something with) an ugly gun.”

        If I have to shoot something, I couldn’t care less what my gun looks like. An ugly gun kills just as fast as a pretty one.

      • Acid Etch says:

        You should be using a revolver.

      • 101st Airborne says:

        Kids and wife all have both carbine and pistol from HP with backups for canibalization. Have never had a malfunction and we shoot a lot. Fired dirty – fired clean – fired cheap ammo – fired top shelf. Extra pairs in boat and trucks ditto for each having a backup revolver. Former 101st Airborne and not a gun snob although I’m a 45/308 kinda guy it helps with me keeping them all knowledgeable of what they fire and comfortable/interchangeable. I have never had an issue with the single keltec 9 in the box – it loads out easily – boyo says he looks cool with it and its primary focus is throwing lead – it does that. Gut tells me to step up preps – the 8th Blood moon since crucification? 1st day of Jewish holy calendar – 20 Mar eclipse usually means judgement? Stock market – Oscrewme and his cronies- illegals-sand rats- Nothing makes sense to me any longer. No logic. Let it happen while I’m still young enough to be an asset to my family.

    • justwaiting says:

      Its a good choicr especilly for ghb . Is it the glock version

    • Chuck In Bama says:

      I’ve got one, Glock mag model. It fits in my GHB along with my 17 and some other stuff in case it takes longer than 12 hours to get home.
      Shoots good, too !

      • hammerhead says:

        YEP ,CHUCK , Glock model so it will accept the same magazines as handgun.
        I dont always carry the handgun because i prefer a rifle.
        I like the way it folds in half in the middle for storage in my bag which i have with me 24/7 .
        It will replace a henry ar7 that just loves to malfunction and its hard to get 22lr these days.
        S , maybe i will trade in the henry for the keltec .

        • Chuck In Bama says:

          hammerhead – I’ll have about an 18 mile trek; with a major retail area right in the middle.
          Plan is to wear a loose shirt (warm weather) or coat to conceal the folded and slung Sub 2K. A little practice and you can have it unfolded & ready to rock in just a few seconds. You’ll need to ID your threat early!

        • falloutboy says:

          also look at getting an ar-15 pistol with an x-mag that will get ya home

    • Aurelius says:

      hammerhead, I have the sub 2k in 40cal and it uses the Glock 22 mags and the Asian hi-cap mags. Couldn’t be more pleased; It loves everything I feed it, it’s accurate and reliable and fun to shoot. Get the 9mm and I’m sure you’ll be pleased. I pair mine with my XD40, a good combo.

    • Ben Raines says:

      I have that sub2k, takes glock 17 mags. The 31 round mag works great! The front sight is not great. I hear that others change out to an aftermarket. It is a terrific compliment to my glocks 17,19,and 26.

      I had TOO much fun and blew a lot of different kinds of ammo through it. SOOO easy to blow a bunch of cash on 9mm.Good FUN! No issues.

      Besides fitting in a pizza box when folded up, it feels compact when you shoot it. I got it for my wife. Easy to point and shoot, little recoil. Perfect for my petite wife.

      I don’t know how easy they are to find. The 40 s&w are more common, I think. I saw the glock9mm version at a pawn shop last week. $349 ask. I paid $250 (new in box)at a gun show 3+ years ago.

      I do not regret my purchase.

      • possee says:

        Joining the ranks as well..
        have had the sub 2k for 3 years now(9mmGlock17 version) and love it..
        best replace the front site, and rear, though with either Tandemkross or Red Lion iron sights …
        RedLion Precision has top rated replacement parts as well

        Aluminum have a tendency to stove point..stick with brass.

        Enjoy

        possee

      • hammerhead says:

        Thanks all , for the reviews.
        I knew i would get my questions answered here !

    • Orion says:

      Had one in .40… Shot ok… Not something I’d stake my life on… felt real cheap to hold… One good drop on the grip and you’d be screwed… Way too “toy” feeling. Couldn’t even use it to beat someone over the head if it did break!!! Might be good for out in the bush as a food gatherer.

      I ended up buying a JR Carbine in .40 instead… ambidextrous bolt… Nice for a lefty like me!
      Shoots straight and feels nice.

      Only draw back is not having a last shot bolt open feature… You have to manually cycle the bolt back to lock position to swap mags. Not a problem if you run the 31 rnd Glock mags like me!

    Hoard and hide it I say don’t take a loan. I will go without before I take a loan. When I buy a car it’s new and I don’t get a loan. The sales man says where do you want your payments monthly to be. I say what rebates going on now he says do I have a trade I tell him maybe. They know right then I’m not fucking getting it in the ass. I’m not making payments on a car. I want all the rebates too and then we will talk trades. If they try to tell me the price is different if I have a trade I say have nice day. When you have the $ you have to let them know who’s calling the shots . There are probably 50 new car dealers around here. That’s a lot of sales managers. Maybe when the economy collapses I will get a new truck. I’m gonna kick them when they are down. They do it to us daily price gouging and shit. Don’t help the market survive.

      Great idea’s when buying a new car. As a joke I sold cars for a few months. The only ones who came into the dealership with the idea of paying cash was two brothers from India. They were smart and wanted the car in the paper for $9,999.00 . Every other person buying a car was only interested in one thing. What’s the monthly payment. They didn’t even care what the price of the car was. What morons. The finance manager promised a 15% interest rate but when the customer singed the paperwork it was 21%. What a rip off scam artist new car dealerships can be. I sold a $50,000 SUV my first day and was paid nothing. Now I hate salesmen.

    BASEBALL

    Barack and Michelle are at the baseball game sitting in
    the first row with the Secret Service seated directly behind them.

    One of the Secret Service agents leans forward and says something to
    the president.

    Barack stares at the agent, looks at Michelle, looks back at the
    agent, and shakes his head no.

    The agent then says, “Mr. President, it was a request from the team
    owner who is a big campaign contributor and the fans will love it”!
    So, Barack shrugs and says, “Well, if it will help my poll numbers.”

    He gets up, grabs Michelle by her collar and the seat of her pants,
    and tosses her right over the railing into the field.
    She gets up kicking, screaming and swearing. The crowd goes wild;
    cheering, applauding, and high-fiving.

    Barack is bowing and smiling, and leans over to the agent and says
    “You were right. I would have never believed that”!

    Noticing the agent has gone totally pale, Barack asks what is wrong.
    The agent replies, “Sir, I said they wanted you to throw out the
    first pitch”!

  20. Unless the Federal Reserve is loaning you money at zero percent interest, and you’re buying US Treasury bonds with it, borrowing money to invest in anything is not a prudent move.

    Anybody that suggests you borrow money to invest in stocks probably has a far greater interest in the commission than in your well being.

Play the unarmed man get close to your enemy then open them up see what they had for breakfast. I really don’t want some guys guts all over me though. This piece is my favorite. it’s just the perfect piece. Nice shooter too the trigger is super smooth it’s got some new fire control design. if you like snubs go to the gun store and fondle one you won’t be disappointed. They sell a tritium front sight blade on amazon I don’t have it yet. I spent enough for the gun IMHO. I you get one I don’t think you will ever sell it. I’m not selling mine it’s a keeper. No hammer on the DAO model. I know some guys have to have it. I like it without . It’s a close up and personal last ditch kind of gun. Cost me$550 total blackened stainless frame and wheel hogue grip. The 38 model is aluminum frame a few grams lighter. If that’s your style. Think costs less too. I suggest a varied battery to cover all situations if you can afford it .

    I’ve had my financial investment and insurance licenses since 1993, and what they are suggesting is not only unethical and immoral, but was illegal if it isn’t still. There is NEVER a reason to capitalize debt to put into the investment market. My clients and I avoided the “corrections” of 2000 and 2008, and believe me when I tell you that those market “shifts” were nothing compared to what is on the horizon today. If you cannot actively manage your investments on a daily basis, I recommend getting out of the market completely while the “getting is good.”

  33. Jeff says:

    This is such assinine advice. David Stockman and Paul Craig Roberts, both of whom worked in Reagan’s administration contradict this advice. I used to be a stock broker for Fidelity Investments from 87 to 92. I’ve had a personal conversation with Edward C Johnson and actually met Ronald Reagan. I was involved in both politics and investments back in those ‘glory’ days.

    I am telling you right now that the system is entirely rigged. When they invalidated Glass-Steagall during the Clinton Administration, the future for where we are today was borne out of those years.

    Let’s be clear in this for a moment; Alan Greenspan, at the behest of the big banks, lobbied vigorously for this change in the law. Al Gore sold it to Congress, and our so-called ‘consevative’ friend, Newt Gingrich was all for is as well.

    Wallstreet loves the Clintons. Elizabeth Warren, the Fauxcahantis from Boston, gets a lot of her money from Wallstreet as well. I don’t need to ‘follow the money’ to understand this.

    At the top, we have a fascist government (Corpratist as Mussolini called it) and at the bottom, we have communist proclivities.

    We, the middle class average patriotic Americans, those of us who fund all this bullshit, are getting marginalized. Neither political party gives a shit about us. They’re both owned by the same corporations…as are the entire MSM, including Fox News.

  34. Those cats pushing loans and buying stocks must think we are all a bunch of stupid mofos.

    Stocks are an insiders game. If you are not a member of the inner circle that knows what’s going to happen before it happens you would be wise to stay far far away. Better to spend your extra money on skill acquisition & education. Depending on where you are, income producing real estate might make sense as long taxes are reasonable. Hard for a crook to put a rent house in his/her pocket and walk off with it. Push comes to shove you could always live in it.

    For town, the Ruger SR22 is very light weight and carrying extra rounds is a breeze. Smack a zombie in the forehead with 40 grains of hot lead that’s cruising along at 900 feet per second will soon have that zombie looking for easier prey. As long as you are not in bear country, when in the outback it’s hard to beat a Ruger SP101 chambered for the mighty .357 magnum. Long arms are heavy and easy to spot. Fine if you plan on a firefight in which case you probably won’t be around for very long anyway.

    A WARNING FROM A RECENT RETIRED PIG

    I retired from being a 25 year police officer 2 years ago. Even back then, I had a ID card(smart card) that said the city I worked for but it was not issued by the city, It was a Federal ID card with all my police and Military training on the card and all that data was on file with the FBI. I was told that in case of an emergency, we could be called up to quell any civil unrest in the country. The FEDS would pay our salaries, provide transportation and housing.
    Plus all our rules regulations and policies must conform to either IACP International Assoc of Chiefs of Police Assoc. standards or “CALEA” Commission on Accreditation Law Enforcement standards, so we must be Internationally certified accredited. These are international standards, so any foreign police commander can come (take over) and fully familiar with all policies very quickly.

    The truth is we have already been not only Federalized but internationalized.

    Elizabeth warren ha I remember her campaign in mass idiot for sure she lies big time IMHO. All the politicians in NE are super corrupt I’ve lived here my whole life. Forget the market investing it’s an unstable thing. You will lose it will be like walking in on a murder in progress you will be a victim too. Bastards lying to people to get them to take a loan and invest in a broke down market. These big time market moguls are losing the game they are such scumbags that they want to take naive people with them. Ha speaking of shit bags curt schilling is on fox talking about cyber bullying this guy had a video game firm the state of Rhode Island took fund from economic development to the tune of $87 million schilling never made 1 payment back then filed bankrupt. The state told the tax payers that they had to pay it back or their bond rating would be down graded. The new stupid governess put people like me on the hook for it. I have a job but there are family’s that are hurting. $ that was for Economic development. These fucking assholes screwed the residents of Rhode Island. I fucking hate all of them. I told you New England politicians are corrupt. Our prior governor chafee was a moron. His son threw a party at their home in Jamestown RI. People left drunk troopers picked him up never heard about it again. It was squashed you can bet. Schilling talked about bullying he didn’t mention his company bullying the taxpayers of the state. Shame on Fox News for putting this criminal on tv. 87 million could do a lot for jobs in the state with the highest unemployment in the country. They are very liberal with giving out free shit though. It’s all part of the plan to make everyone gov dependent. Fuck them all don’t give them a dime. They are not doing the right thing for the people they serve. I hate this state and I’m moving selling my house that I own not the bank and I’m taking my $ somewhere else been looking. They can have their nanny state gov. I’m not gonna be kept down. It’s been snowing everyday and I know the economy is getting a black eye. People are not going out the roads are not wide enough to pass oncoming traffic. When the quarters economic numbers come out they are gonna suck. I’ve been in the house for two months. I’m not the only one so the numbers are gonna reflect it. Good I hope it keeps snowing thru April too. Anything to hurt them in the wallet. I just took $172 a month away from the state for a medical support order they had on me I paid $86 a month for about 8 years. They subpoenaed me to court I told judge I’m gonna put my kids on my works medical it’s free. They had no choice but to let me as long as I provide medical support for them. They can’t get $ from the useless eaters but they have to provide medical insurance for the children of the state. People the gov don’t know what the fuck they are doing they are going down bide your time. If your hurting just hang in there it won’t be long it looks like the states are going to federal gov to fill the shortfalls. The fed gov is broke too. Where they gonna go next.

    Speculative investments are for speculators. It is nothing but high-stakes gambling. The best advice for the ordinary person is to stay out of debt and acquire solid assets that could be sold or used to make income if necessary.

Their advice was, control your own money, don’t let somebody else do it for you. We ( I ) still have the farm when a lot of people that I grew up with had their farms sold out by the bank or whoever. Mom and Dad always managed their money and very few payments plans if they couldn’t help it.

  55. Stocks pumped up via companies buying back their own shares raising prices so company executives can sell their ownership in those same companies at inflated prices thanks to the buybacks. Also, a large chunk of shares (50%?)were bought up by the big banking institutions. Now that stock prices are high the executives and bankers are looking for a bag holder. It appears that they have instructed their media lackeys to start pushing the idea of borrowing money to buy the market into the minds of the sheeple. If you don’t know who the bag holder is, you’re it.

    If you believe it’s a good idea to buy this market you either think that prices are cheap and will go up and that you have the ability to intuitively divine the next top so you can sell to an even greater fool or you believe that you can make more money in this market versus other options.

    Some are focused on the return OF their capital rather than a return ON their capital. As Richard Russell likes to say there is nothing more valuable than piece of mind.
