    I'm thinking about buying a ranch near my sister in California and starting a cult. Then my devotees can take of the details.

    The cost of living is too high there and the guvment would keep tabs on you too closely, Florida is probably good as anywhere for a cult. You could do the ground work for a year or two online and screen out the prospects that don't have any money. You can call them in when we have the next disaster.
    You really need to get busy and write your first divinely inspired book though so you can start with prophet status.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    Theme it as a Muslim retreat and the government will go out of their way to make sure you are not bothered.

    Not a bad idea, he could say he was the Imam with a fifth.

    It worked for Hubbard. He was also smart enough to personally stay in international waters most of the time. :p

    Same here, but no water company. I am outside of the city limits, so I have a well...much cheaper every month.

    My wife's 401k got 3.09%
    My retirement plan got 4.25%

    My CAN SLIM stuff got 4.74%


    But my wife's 401k weathered the last few days better than either of my accounts.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    Could be it's gonna be a rough March. But that's kind of a test of our portfolios, isn't it? Most portfolios will make money when the S&P goes up from 1289 to 1327 - that's 28 points, or 2.1%. The real test comes when the S&P hits 1250. For instance.:)

    I bought a few shares of Palladium (PALL) today. I am waiting for a correction to make more moves and will probably dump them in May.

    With Uncle Ben printing money, the dollar floundering, unrest in the middle east and inflation on the horizon especially in Europe, commodities should knock your socks off. So, that is the path I am gonna take. Conservative investors should diversify.
