There is a real war on women. And it’s not the one contrived by liberals to win voters in the last election. No, this war on women takes place in many countries. It’s hard for people of the U.S. to imagine but there are still places where women are still seen as second class citizens. […]

If you invest in individual stocks you will likely, or should, be steering clear of Apple (AAPL). Apple shares are now more than 25% off their September levels, but the question long term investors should ask is why? Is it because Mr. Jobs passed and the new leadership is unable to innovate? The answer is an unequivocal “YES.” […]

Today’s video goes over some differences […]

In recent months, I’ve learned that if you don’t provide people with information, they’ll try to guess the answers on their own. They won’t contact you and ask for you to fill the blanks in; they’ll just make assumptions and then act on them. In light of that, I’ve decided to go ahead and post […]
