Dave Collum's 2016 Year In Review - "And Then Things Got Really Weird..."

"Markets don’t have a purpose any more - they just reflect whatever central planners want them to. Why wouldn’t it lead to the biggest collapse? My strategy doesn’t require that I’m right about the likelihood of that scenario. Logic dictates to me that it’s inevitable..."

Comparing Donald Trump To Hitler Is A Slippery Slope

Republican Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee was forced to apologize and explain himself for what he said, even if he wasn’t directly comparing Obama to Hitler.

"...this group of ostensible experts far more resembles amateur peddlers of primitive, shallow propagandistic clichés than serious, substantive analysis and expertise; and is engaging in extremely dubious McCarthyite tactics about a wide range of critics and dissenters... WaPo should be very proud: it staked a major part of its news story on the unverified, untestable assertions of this laughable organization."

In today’s world, reaching the magical “millionaire” mark of a $1 million net worth is less meaningful than it used to be. In fact, roughly 9% of households in the United States have “millionaires” living in them – this is a record amount, caused partially through the devaluation of currency over time.
