American Toe Jam

JUNE 2, 2018. Down in the gunky spaces and the soiled places is where you’ll find them. God knows we can’t afford to leave them lying about. Embarrassments have places, and that’s not on TV. Yet there they are Wells and Puerto Rico. Makes sense really that both would be on stage. Hurricane season began yesterday, and well, Wells seems to never cease committing or recommitting something. All aboard.

Informed Independent People Are Nobody’s Fool. Join Us. That’s Why We’re Here. They Warned Us Not To Tell.

MAY 14, 2018. Investing is hared work not magic. Unfortunately, the ranks of professional managed money are riddled with nonsense and fees paid for said. Great financial professionals exist. Yet, most are locked into a conflict of interest.
If money “doesn’t really matter,” why does everyone want yours? Trust is not a substitute for knowledge. Besides, if you have to actually pay someone to help you, how much is their assistance truly worth? And in the end, when they’re wrong, who pays? Right. Pay up front and again on the backside.
When things go right or wrong for your money, it’s on you. It’s your money, and your choice, if you allowed someone else to do your driving. That’s why we’re here. The bottom line is, again, it’s your money, and ours. That’s why we run it ourselves. You can too. We’re sharing our every step with you, as we go. Together we can do this. That’s a fact. Join Us.

“420 To CanAmerica.” Half Of US Are Already There.

APRIL 20, 2018. 420 in America is like Earth Day a few years ago. 420 is not a police term for “active marijuana use.” But it did begin in Colorado. The Rockies now almost represent weed liberation, a budding mecca many feel is now creating the path to a sensible and widely beneficial future.
Weed in American has grown up, grown strong, and grown unrecognizable relative to its ancient roots. Cannabis is in fact a plant in human use for thousands of years. And then it came to America–oops, that was an accident.
Southern slave owners had no idea what they were starting when they imported people from Africa and the Caribbean to work their fields. Then they discovered the weed, oops, again. Then came Anslinger, culturally entrenched alcohol, propaganda, a fruitless war that plows on today, and then business. It will be business that finally drags this “Devil Weed” from the clutches of ignorance and shadow. It’s 420 in CanAmerica.
