K          “Fold ‘em?”

J          “Hold ‘em?”

. . .

K          “Uncertain times.”

J          “Certainement.”

K        “Every measurement, every metric, every benchmark, every instinct, every impulse, every pulse screams that the financial system should have exploded and imploded years ago.”

J          “The only thing the little person in the American criminal enterprise system can do is buy and hold in and for the long term.  The system is otherwise rigged to plunder the little person and protect the big person.”

Bumper sticker of the week:

Hold ‘em?  Fold ‘em?

A day late and a Bitcoin short.

“You’ve got to know when to hold’em, know when to fold’em,  Know when to walk away, know when to run.  You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table, There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.”  “The Gambler” written by Don Schlitz and sung by Kenny Rogers.

Hard come, easy go.
