Mark Twain, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
“Beware the fury of a patient man.”
John Dryden, Absalom and Achitopel
The SP 500 continues to dribble higher, while the tech heavy Nas 100 is now chopping sideways.

One wonders what has to happen so that Hillary Clinton will get the hint that the public as a whole has had enough of her crony capitalist political chicanery, and should cease her whining and blaming the progressive wing of her party, ie the real historical base.

Time to retire and do some real good for others in the world like Jimmy Carter.
