Another Home Run with Natural Gas

It looks like I hit the nail on the head once again with a major short position in the United States Natural Gas Fund (UNG). After my followers bought the July, 2014 $26 puts at $2.16 on Monday, the (UNG) suffered its worst trading day since 2007, the underlying commodity plunging a breathtaking 11%. The […]

Get Ready for Your Next Big Tax Hit

No matter what anyone promises you today, this week, or this year, your taxes are going up. I don’t care if you are still licking your wounds from the last payroll tax rise, or the federal tax hike for millionaires, which in my case took my rate up from 35% to 39.5%. At least the […]

I’m Back from the Land Down Under

I’m half mad with jet lag, and I haven’t pooped in three days. But I’m back from the magical Land Down Under. It was another one of those incredible, once in a lifetime, bucket list type trips. The highlight was flying my own plane out to a small speck of a coral island 40 miles […]

Budget Cuts Hit the Wild Animal Market

In case you missed it, the second hand animal market has crashed. Forced to slash budgets by cash starved municipalities, the nation’s public zoos have been paring back their collections of living exhibits.

Things are Heating Up in Mexico

I have fond memories traveling around northern Mexico during the 1950’s. My grandfather used to drive us across the border into Baja in his pickup truck, the back loaded with camping equipment, water, fishing poles, rifles, and shotguns. There was no border control. To eat, we only had to wait for the tide to go […]

America’s Native Indian Economy

After the bricklayer crawled up the fireplace, he found a yellowed and somewhat singed envelope addressed to Santa Claus. Thinking it was placed there by my kids, he handed it over to me. In it was a letter dated […]
