We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Great article . I never day traded and often wondered why. I had the time and the resources. I was a risk taker. When I retired I had borrowed over $100,000 in my margin account but only traded 5 o 6 times a month. And I thought I was smart enough to succeed at the current fad - day trading! Thank God I was smart enough to not do it.
