Set forth below is the text of a comment that I recently posted to another blog entry at this site:
If you are waiting for a 65% crash, followed by your $500 million windfall and goons going to prison, then you will probably need to come visit me at the local cemetery as I will be long gone by that time. I am not planning on passing away anytime soon, but old age will eventually catch up to me in another 50 years or so.
I don’t like this way of playing it.
But I think it would be fair to say that I don’t seem to have a whole big bunch of other options available to me.
When two sides in a dispute are both 100 percent inflexible re the key point of contention, the only thing to do is to take a step back and see if time causes circumstances to change in some way.
It’s nothing personal, Anonymous. There are things that I can do and there are things that I cannot do. You can’t teach a dog to meow and you can’t teach a cat to bark and you can’t teach Rob Bennett to say on the internet that John Greaney’s retirement study contains an adjustment for the valuation level that applies on the day the retirement begins.
I wish you all good things. Can you say the same back? You don’t have to. It would be nice if you did.
Either way, that’s my feeling towards you and the other Goons and the Wall Street Con Men too. I wish you all the best that this life has to offer a person. I believe that we all will be working together following the crash.
I don’t like the idea of waiting. But I don’t see any other options.
Please feel 100 percent welcomed to continue posting questions here as they occur to you. Some of your questions have had great value, in my assessment.
Maybe you are right, you know? I have been wrong about important things before. It could be that it is happening again. I don’t think that’s the case. But I don’t believe that any of us fallible humans can ever be 100 percent certain.
And please take good care.
