Anyone who is concerned about what the ‘market’ is doing on a daily basis really has no business buying stocks.
A government which robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.

There are some oddities in the perspective with which we see the world. The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well on the surface of a gas-covered planet going around a nuclear fireball ninety million miles away – and think this to be normal – is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.
On my flight out to SF Monday, I watched The Matrix on and off on the SciFi Channel (thank you JetBlue!) while I worked. I’ve probably seen the movie a dozen or more times, but it’s been quite a few years since I saw it last. Morpheus has a great quote that I thought was a worthy followup to my post about ideas versus implementation:
There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.
You’re not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or who says it.
