Let's see, Veteran (Vietnam era), Commercial Artist, picture framer, industrial engineer & corporate executive (once upon a time), small business owner and operator, Ayn Rand fan, Libertarian (and no, its not a synonym for "Republican" or "Conservative"), and history buff. Serious investor, I need to earn money from my assets, and I'm of the age where I pull money out to help put food on the table. I like to fish, but just as with my investing, I am a "meat fisherman", I only kill what I plan to consume.
