The Sarcasm Report v.131

How to create financial security in retirement

“First, what if a ‘dirty bomb’ were to go off in a major U.S. city, and the stock market fell 40% in one day?” he asked. “Second, what if a ‘double-dip recession’ occurs, or another Great Recession, with an associated deep and prolonged stock market downturn. If your investment plan or what some call an ‘investment policy’ addresses what you will do should either of these events occur — you will not worry as much.”

Wow. This really does work. I'm not at all worried now.

I live in NYC, and a dirty bomb just does not worry me. Were it to occur, and were I unfortunate enough to be in the vicinity, my investment allocation strategy would not be my first concern, assuming I survived.
Just saying.

Who Struck John,

Brilliant, you are. Yes, hmmm.

Heresy! Investments must always be your #1 priority. Always.

Our country cannot afford to be placing personal safety concerns above that of Wall Street's interests.
