EDIT: At the time this blog entry was posted I had a Youtube video here. That has been removed but I want the rest of my content to be remain. Nothing hidden no past mistakes ignored. All out in the open.
I hope everyone is aware I being grossly exaggerating what would happen with Europe and Iran to emphasize a point. That if one really wants to, there is always a catastrophic reason to not make an investment.
Also as a point of clarity, I did not go all in the stock market in April 2009 and picked a near bottom. No, I moved from a heavy cash position to a less heavy cash position to add to some stock positions I had held throughout the 2008 crash.
