The stock market is imitating a yoyo, up yesterday, down more today. Yes, I play it, somewhat a day trader, but not with money we need for a mortgage payment or groceries. Luckily I have a very conservative wife who’d faint if she lost $100 of her hard earned. The fact is it’s foolish to play the market when you have an administration that hates business, that hates the energy companies, that has a totally unrealistic belief in alternative energy…or maybe not really a belief but knows if they paint a rosy picture they’ll get votes and stay in office. Of course you can play the market as a bear, but I’m basically a positive thinker and it’s hard for me.
That said I’m about to agree with the Dims. It may not be a shock to you but it’s sure as hell a shock to me. I buy their belief that most Americans are not merely ignorant but are stupid. They keep spoon-feeding American’s B.S. and they keep lapping it up. When the administrations own agencies say we have, over the last year, a 21% cost increase in public transportation, 33.4% in airfares, and the consumer price index rose at an annual 8.3% last month, yet tell you how great they’re doing…can you come to your own conclusion? Too many American’s can’t and believe the lying a-holes. And their lies are supported by the press! As our primary business is books and publishing, we watch that market closely. The New York Times bestseller list has long been the measure of the market…but it’s a lie and we’ve long known it. Right now they have I’M GLAD MY MOM DIED as No. 1 in the country with last weeks sales at 34,686, however Alex Jones who even I think is somewhat a crazy, but a lib hater, has a book, THE GREAT RESET which sold over 56,000 copies last week. The NYT knows it, BookScan, who actually keeps track of the numbers reports it, yet the NYT chooses to lie about it as Jones is considered a conservative. It’s a sad reality.
The NYT was founded in 1851 or 52 and has had 175 years to cultivate liars among its ranks, and I think it sad as they set the pace for the rest of the country’s newspapers. When our own local paper got a new editor I wrote a letter to the editor, which they surprisingly printed, saying I hoped the new editor would be even handed. Foolish sparrow me. However the paper serves a community with a University, offices of the BLM (Bureau of Land Management), Forest Service, Federal Courthouse, so it’s a town of workers who’ve never so much as run a hot dog stand, never taken that primary commodity of free enterprise, RISK, and who get their check at the end of the month no matter their production. Does the term “deep state” ring a bell? And the new editor has proved as biased as the old. Last night my fiscally conservative wife asked me why we continue to subscribe and I have to agree…why do we? The paper is failing and continues to be biased. I wonder, if they reported the news without obvious bias and encouraged a spirited debate in their newsroom and on their pages, would they be failing? I don’t think so. But that’s just me who has lived on risk all his life.
