Yesterday, the Dow Jones Index went up over two hundred points, and to know surprise it lost six hundred and ten points. If we only knew. Goldman Sachs lost ten points, JP Morgan Chase lost over four points, and IBM lost over eight points. On the plus side gold was up almost sixty dollars an ounce. If we only knew, but as in the Jim Carrey movie, “Bruce Almighty”, everyone won the lotto, if we only knew. but, Great Britainers, and I mean Great Britain, all knew that, even though the vote was close, 51.9% to 48.1%, that they were going to leave the European Union, heads, I don”t, tales I do. If this is an option spread, then what is.
Look at the case of Martha Stewart, was told by a doctor who founded his company ImClone, to sell the $200,000.00 of stock she owned. The government viewed this as inside trading and she was sentenced to a five month prison, plus five months of home confinement. Here is a woman who as of last year has a net worth close to $300 million dollars, made a personal mistake and had to re- arrange ten months of her life. I think some kind of community service and maybe could of built a hospital in a poor neighborhood, would be more justifiable. Do you think the world should put in jail the 17 million Brits that voted for “”Brexit, in jail for inside trading? Last August a Leicester,(professional English football team) had their odds of winning a championship as 5000-1, I guess Brits love their odds, and who wouldn’t. Life is a gamble, or does it have to be?
I know many of you, would say to me, that I could of just take two separate financial positions, and bet on both sides, I probably should of, but I like to take chances on a sure thing, maybe on a world that could of prevented what we saw happening on today’s market.
You know what, I guest this was the day that we were all Losers, for those who made some money, you will look back at this day, and realize that you were responsible for some horrible times ahead of us, and for those who just want to live good and healthy life, remember today, that we all can make a difference in this world, if we all work together to stop the violence and greed in this world. Don’t tell us that your God allows you to murder forty-nine people at a gay night club in Orlando, or to a politician who want to build walls around our country, ban Muslims from entering our country, making the cost of health care only being affordable to the wealthy, lets have a $10,000.00 license fee for owning an assault rifle with a six month waiting period,make the ruthless killing of any of our veterans a felony, and punishable by death. I can go on and on.
However,today, should be a wake up call, that we live in a world that we can all make a difference, and it just more than than to leave an union of other countries! “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain,and establish this Constitution for the United States of America”.
