Recent volatility in the stock markets signals a crash. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns, but every major market meltdown in the history of the world has been preceded by a period of volatility. The wild swings of the last couple of weeks are unprecedented: down 600 one day, up 400 the next, down 300 the next, up 500 the next, and so on. Read it all
Look, I don't want to scare anybody. I've been warning about the dollar bubble for a few years now.

Yeah, I know it's not my generation's thing, but I'm still entitled to opine...

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
- Corinthians, 13:4-7
Doesn't anybody know how to write love songs anymore?
Or maybe nobody knows what love is
Or maybe "The Man" just doesn't want to promote love and those sorts of things...
