If your money had been in an indexed fund since 2009, it should be worth a lot more now.
I realize that's a pretty big IF.
We've had a bull market for years, a correction is overdue.
I'm waiting for the right moment to invest my buried treasure.
I'm thinking my funds were indexed to our non-existent inflation rate or something. I admit, I don't get very active with them. I have some old mines on my property, might be good places to stash the cash.


Long overdue.
We do business and have done business with some bad actors in this world.
Hard to understand why Cuba has been considered a pariah for this long.
The boycott most definitely should have been lifted when the Cold War ended.
Cuba Libres all around!!!!
I'm buying....with my buried loot.
It's all about the votes in Florida, right? But with Jeb running, Dems probably won't win Florida anyway...

don't forget cigars! ok, I don't smoke, but still...

What kind of mines?

Jeb would be favored to win Florida.

don't forget cigars!
I've heard from my smoking friends that Cuban cigars are overrated.
Part of the attraction to these smokes was probably their semi-illegality.
On the other hand, Cuba has a massive supply of vintage US automobiles.

ok, I don't smoke, but still...
You'd best not smoke.
Those abandoned mines are notorious for methane gas leaks.

Gold mines ... no gold left in them though. Well, maybe some flakes if I wanted to pound on quartz a bit.

Maybe Cuba would buy my old cars! ok, they aren't THAT old.

Good point - would hate to see the hillside blown apart because I triggered a gas explosion! I'll skip the smoking...

Those explosions might reveal new veins of gold.
We -----I'm making myself your new business partner, what with the gold and all------shall call this process mineral fracking.

Anyone else have nominations or seconds to post? (I think you can nominate or second yourself even).

The convention needs THREE officers, so probably this nomination thread will close soon and go up for a a voting thread. Ideally, it will be for who you think would be fair and devote the effort, not who you most agree with on issues. The officers have no power in relation to issues.

There should be NO 2nd place voter-getter gets a position. It should take a majority (simple majority) to win, meaning maybe a run-off. These election threads need to be on a fairly short time limit to vote to get the organizing stuff done and move on the Constitutional issues and votes.

I have already been nominated four times, but I enjoy having my ego (among other things) stroked. And so, anybody who seconds me from this point forward shall receive a seal of approval.
