Goodby, Dick

After many years of being a subscriber to Dick Morris “Lunch Alert” and newsletter, today I unsubscribed. What prompted that?

Abortion Decision A Catastrophe For Republican Chances In '22


I doubt abortion alone is a litmus test for undecided voters.

Dick has been wrong about so many things over the years I can’t even begin to list them. Today’s shrill fear mongering flipped my switch. Guess getting elected is more important then principals in his world.

One other things has been bothering me for years and that is his shilling the Patriot Gold Group.  I’m in no position to buy anything other than a coin or two from a local shop. For certain, if I could, I want the gold or silver delivered to my hands; not some “certificate”.

In other places I’ve read 2,000% more silver has been “sold” than has ever been mined. True or not, I smell a Ponzi.

As always, YMMV.

I feel the same way about precious metals and hard currency: If I can't hold it, I don't own it.

I don't want to pay you for something you tell me is in your vault. I want it in my possession, or I don't own it.

Likewise I have nothing in safety deposit boxes. My important papers are in an fire resistant watertight envelope in my refrigerator.

I never thought much of Dick. He was a Clinton guy until they kicked him to the curb.

Clinton seemed to be his apex. Didn't hurt his father was Donald Trumps father's personal attorney.

Huh, I didn't even realize he was still around...

Well Seasoned Fool said...

He has become less relevant.

I too thought he was dead. Wishful thinking?
What party does he favor?
To show you how confused I am, I have these "single issue" concerns ;) :
2nd amendment.
Killing baby humans.
State's rights.
Somebody help me!

Morris is allegedly a Republican. As to help, this winter in Fla you can probably find woke classes at a nearby Junior College.

Heard this on the John Catsimatidis show this morning. Was driving, and I have bad hearing so didn't know who was talking at first. I thought, "whoever this is, he has lousy political instincts." Guess that would come as news to Mr. Morris.

He makes a living doing it so he has that going for him.

Ah, the old silver conundrum. Are we looking at MOASS (Mother Of All Short Squeezes)? Good question and I'm no expert but physical precious metal in the hand is surely worth more than digital fantasy paper on the computer. Maybe. So I think I'm with drjim on this.

DRJIM has good instincts. As I look back on my lifetime, I've missed many opportunities. It has made for blog fodder. I've also missed many "sure things" that weren't.
