Who’s tired of me talking about bonds yet? I’m kind of getting tired of it. But corporate bonds are the real story, not stocks. Yes, stocks are down 29% (S&P500 Index). But bonds…damn!

Wanted to share this with you first…

I just recorded a new video. It’s different than anything I’ve done in a very long time.  There are no price charts.  No talk of gold, or bonds, or trends, or anything like that.  And in fact, you may not like it at all.  But here’s the thing… I think the content in this video is the most…
