Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - We Learn Nothing - The Downward Spiral of Dumbness

“The truth is, there are not two kinds of people.  There’s only one: the kind that loves to divide up into gangs who hate each other’s guts.  Both conservatives and liberals agree among themselves, on their respective message boards, in uncannily identical language, that their opponents lack any self-awareness or empathy, the ability to see the other side of an argument or to laugh at themselves.  Which would seem to suggest that they’re both correct.

Let me propose that if your beliefs or convictions matter more to you than people—if they require you to act as though you were a worse person than you are—you may have lost perspective.”

Tim Kreider, We Learn Nothing

“A sociopath is one who sees others as impersonal objects to be manipulated to fulfill their own narcissistic needs without any regard for the hurtful consequences of their selfish actions.”

R. Alan Woods

"I told you once that I was searching for the nature of evil.  I think I've come close to defining it: a lack of empathy.  It's the one characteristic that connects all the defendants. A genuine incapacity to feel with their fellow man.  Evil, I think, is the absence of empathy."

G. M. Gilbert

“The downward spiral of dumbness in America is about to hit a new low.”

Hunter S. Thompson

Stocks were higher today.

As was the Dollar, gold and silver.

The price of oil went higher as Trumpolini reportedly urged the Saudis and Russia to get together and cut production. Yay!

The only thing that seemed to go lower is the IQ of the discourse of the nation.  Thank you Fox, MSNBC, and Talk Radio.  And the usual internet suspects.

Other than that it was the same old.

Get right, sit tight.

Have a pleasant evening.
