Perception is unique.
“Two men looked out through prison bars.
One man saw mud, the other stars.”
The current state of affairs seems to have us believe the laws have changed.
Our perception of value may change over time, but facts are facts.
I proposed this idea about that on January 30, 2013.
With regards to the economy and stock market, the longs have had a field day kicking the can down the road. The gap, trap, and squeeze trade all the way ’til the cows come home at the end of the year is playing out.

On Thanksgiving, we all took turns saying what we were most thankful for.
Mom was sitting next to me, and at 92 years old, we never know how many more times like that we will be able to get together.
I toasted that I was thankful for those who have gone before us and taught us our values. Pop, and Poppy. Grandpa Dan. Lillian and Gisela and Mimi. All from a generation born to Destiny.
They are my Stars, not carved into the sidewalk, but in the eternal darkness filled with Light and hope and a desire to help ourselves by helping one another.
