    Something to Ponder for Investing Wisely - - for:  AAPL and My Ten Top - Dow Companies ( plus ) Gold, Silver, Crude Oil and Treasuries  { September 10, 2011 }

     

    Intro: 

     

    About 3 weeks ago I posted 11 Instablogs and a Summary followed.  I also posted separate Instablogs on Gold, Silver, Crude Oil and Treasuries (Longer-Term)

     

    Also in SeekingAlpha.com – InstaBlog - March, April and May of this year I did a series of all Dow 30 Industrial Companies.  Your review of my forecasts / warnings / alerts will confirm – had they been followed - much of losses that have occurred would have been prevented.  They were dead-on with accuracy!  If this is of interest to you - Please read my Bio – the URL is below.

     

    I discontinued that hard work of the March to May postings due to very little Email response from you “serious investors” and receivied much hee-haa about how wrong could an old guy like me - could be.  (Well – as usual it was they who were wrong and I was as usual (for over 50 years) right, but I never hear or heard any apologizes ! ! !)  As you can perhaps understand - the hee-haa got to me so I stopped posting Articles, Instablogs and StockTalks for over a full month here in SeekingAlpha.com.  I am, however pleased to share that many of you sent Emails requesting that I start my posting again.  Thanks to you for the encouragement, I will try again to share my talents and perhaps learn to disregard the negative stuff that seems to be an exclusive with many of the readers of  - SeekingAlpha.com.

     

    Something to Ponder for Investing Wisely: 

     

    Recently, I took part of an afternoon to pontificate and tell you how to Invest Wisely.  After reading this for just a bit of time - You might ask how does your attack on the American Investor could possible help me to Invest Wisely?  That would be a very good question, but you perhaps are not receptive to my perspective, which says – you had better have a humble yet proactive mindset if you are going to be a profitable investor.  The Americans whom I knew while living in the U.S. and the ex-patriots I have met down here in Mexico are: simple said - have a very wrong mindset for purposes of Investing Wisely.

     

    Ninety percent of you Americans just won't and don't get it!  The funny part for me is that most of you that read this will be absolutely sure you are in the ten percent category!  Facts confirm that you are not!  Want to Change your Mindset?

     

    The United States of America visits my personal / private blog (see the URL below) more than all the combined 51 other Countries of the World that also visit this my blog by a factor of 9 to 1. Several thousand visit my / this - Personal / Private Blog - each month. That means that for every 1,000 of you good people around the world, 900 people / investors that visit this site are Americans.

     

    I am an American and draw Social Security. I have a very fine education and have lived a very “protected” life. In many ways, I am grateful for being an American, however I moved to Mexico ten years ago to get away from the Americans, who were total and complete ass holes. It is my judgment that 9 out of 10 Americans fit the category that I described above.  My statistics are not nearly that high in more rural parts of the U.S.  There are some very fine people in the U.S. and would not want to include you in my statistics.  Maybe I can help you good people but I seriously doubt if I can help the others.

     

    This opinion is very discouraging to me, because I have been an ‘American’ ( living in the U.S. ) for 60 of 72 years of my life and did not know the difference between good people and those who were / are many other things.  Demanding, entitled, cock sure of themselves, stupid in their actions --- the list goes on and one.  Since moving to Mexico the lights have come on and writing this Blog and receiving many emails, I am completely sure of the opinions herein.

     

    They are also just plain Stupid with their investments and have little or no “Street Since.”  Clearly they have too much money and not enough brains to be profitable investors. 

     

    Those of you Americans whom I have a relationship, I apologize to you.  Keep being something special and we together will prosper.

     

    You may find these remarks difficult to understand, when I often share that I am “seeking new clients.”  A jerk is a jerk in any Country in the world.  (Jerk is a replacement word for ass hole).  We have them here in Mexico, ( Ex-pats ) and the percent figures I have used above are even higher.

     

    You Americans, have financially taken it in the neck in 1999 – 2002 and again in 2007 – 2008 and clearly did not learn a thing.  It is going to get even rougher for you as the weeks, months and years pass, and the rest of the world is going to finally get its laugh.  Yes, the ‘rest of the world’ is also in trouble, and the jerks in those countries will also take it in the neck.  The difference is - - there is - no-where near the high percentage of ‘jerks’ in those countries.  Again, this opinion is based on the Email correspondence I have received from many investors through-out the world, over these more recent years.

     

    You Americans who have Mutual Funds both in and out of your retirement accounts are getting screwed every single day.  You are just plain stupid to permit this but you will and do.  Complacency will cost you a fine retirement and financial peace of mind.  Wall Street owns the world for now and will lose in the long run – the very long run.  The U.S. media is the biggest joke on earth, with blatant lies and distortion of facts.  That is why I only read or view BBC and other much better media providers.  Asia has to grow a bit but is likely the replacement owner of the world from the U.S.  The problem for all other Countries is that the U.S. has the military might and will use it when necessary.  I said ‘when” not “if” necessary – it already is using it.  That is a sad solution for the pathetic economic policies that the U.S. elected people in Washington has provided you for decades.

     

    There is a solution, but very few of you will ever figure out what it is!

     

    Have a fun weekend and consider “getting a proper perspective of your life.”

     

    More of this will follow.  I am the only financial blogger who is telling you like it is.  Remember Flip Wilson?  “What you see is what you get.”  The Americans, on balance, can’t see, hear, listen or understand.  That is -Why the above is “right on” and is the only way for you to understand Why is to take a serious look at your life and financial situation and "Ponder" just a bit.  I also recommend you pay attentions and take the time to carefully read my forecasts, warnings and alerts.
