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.
The way it's done is this..you mark to the market all hamburgers, book the profits and the share price of the burger barn goes up. The collateral is the hunger people have for burgers so you sell futures on hunger, strip off the tranches for the next meal due and bundle the remainder for sale to ML, who then further divide the bundles into those with and without relish....those get sold too ....lay off any debt at the end of the fouth quarter by buying Nigerian energy barges of Chinee Takee Outee places.
If you are really ahead of the game you hedge fund the burger boom via private investors..I mean what is more certain than world wide hunger? In no time you're rolling in e-coli.
