I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?

Consider myself a bottom-line eclectic trader/investor. Mantra: If it has high net margin results and sustainable volume and outstanding and positive profit management then I look; at my age everything is near-term. You always have to be looking 360 degrees. Trouble means "red-flag". Think reasons ------ not excuses. Four years and out for any leader if success is not of magnatude, No mold allowed to accrue! No if ands, or buts ... for any reason. Bad predecessor? Tuff!!! We hear that crap daily from the white house. Turn things around or goodby, and as they use to say so politically incorrect in my day "don't let the door hit you on the a... on your way ------- out!
