Working in the Background

I have had my head down dealing with life but really hope to be adding some commentary soon regarding tax avoidance, tax deferral and getting into the meat and potatoes of one of the last true wealth creators under the tax code, especially here in California.
For the record I have lost 20 lbs and am starting to get my creative energy back and am very excited about some of the things I am uncovering.
Hold tight, I am moving like molasses but hope to give up TV soon to write more about these tremendous opportunities…
All the best

Meanwhile as Joe Lunchbucket tries to survive day to day…

Harry Reid is still stymying to let Obama legalize millions of ILLEGAL aliens and open the door to 100’s of thousands of muslims to come over from the mess he has created over there.

My lifelong Democrat Dad thinks he is doing a splendid job as my parents have fully assimilated to the Borg of Lamestream Media. Its scary out there…

The markets remain calm moving around a bit but not acting like we are on the verge of World War III, or painting an accurate picture of the huge currency and debt manipulation going on all over the world…

I hear they are trying to ban a certain type of ammo that is currently readily available for AR-15 rifles, I have no doubts there is about to be a big run on that ammo again, so buy em while you can find them.

I have not idea why I even write this stuff, I have no doubt I am already on several watch lists, but hey so are most patriots anymore because if you are not getting a handout from the government you are most likely on a list…

Just some random musings to keep something written regularly on this site…I made a great run on the NQ today, only to be stopped out and give a large chunk back, I also got stopped out of the GC contract last night at the peak an missed a nearly 10 point run down on that….Sheesh, I scalped a little bit of Crude Oil today but its looking more volatile so hope to step in and make some more dough in the coming weeks.

Bye for now!

Picked a friend up from Jail today…


So as I am tying to trade the CL/Oil contract I get the call to go bail a buddy out of jail. I have a special relationship with this buddy that means if I get the call or he gets the call, we will move mountains to be there for the other one.

I can count on one hand the number of guys in my life that I have this sort of relationship with, and that is more than many folks have that they can rely on.

I would encourage you to think about who you call when the shit hits the fan as it will invariably do from time to time in your life and having a couple of those sorts of favors close to the vest is a good thing.

Just thought I would share this moment with you….

Why am I doing this, or WHY BLOG?


The Cathartic process of writing a blog site while seeming overwhelming is actually not as hard as it seems.

I have no idea the direction this will go, but I lets talk for a minute about my wins today.

#1 I started a diet on January 2nd that includes using the recipe for bulletproof coffee nearly daily with an addition of meal replacement protein powder to keep some vitamins going in the diet. (there were a couple of short trips that made it impossible with no blender access) stopping all bread and pasta intake and eliminating all sugary goodness like candy, cookies, cake etc. When I started the scale said 217.5 lbs, today the scale said 197.5 pounds, losing 20 lbs in under a month is a #WIN!

#2 I am trading again and hope to add more later, but I caught the better part of a few runs up and down today on Crude Oil and built the account back up by 11.76% in one day. That is in no small part due to the camaraderie and guidance of the folks over at Trading Addicts and specifically Jeff the resident addict. World Class advice and info over there.

#3 My church Bayside of Granite Bay had a guest speaker named Chris Brown come in last night, and he gave quite possibly the best sermon I have heard in over 20 years on the marriage relationship, and I encourage EVERYONE to watch it as it has plenty of information for atheists, jews and jihadis or other than Christians about relationships, please watch and be amazed at Chris Brown’s story telling ability!

I know your busy this site should be of great help to you!



I swear my setup looks better than this photo!

Lets talk about what I work on:

I Phone 6.

I Pad Air 2.

Mac Mini with Two Monitors at the office.

Macbook Pro 15 inch at home.

The amazing thing is I am only beginning to tap into the capabilities of these devices.

Who has time to review all of the apps and programs go make life easier? There are 100,000’s of apps and programs out there and This site alone has saved DAYS worth of trying to venture out there on my own to find great programs and apps.

This site is called”

The Sweet Setup

Click the above link and feel free to shout out to me how great it is to have saved so much time by what these guys have accomplished.

Why are you reading this?



Well here goes another of several starts and stops over the years.

I am finally going to try and get some regular content that revolves around my unique knowledge base, meaning as I approach the age of 50 in the next year and 3 months I hope to share my expertise about life which just happens to include quite a depth of content.

There is so much to share and so little time as well as a deep need to screen out the information that does not benefit anyone.

The following are the topics though there may be many missing, I would also like to use this as Q and A thing for anyone needing a little direction.

Marriage (21+ plus years now categorizes me as an Expert)

Step Children (Same 21+ years and a whole world of hurt and experience to draw from)

Money (21+ years as a financial advisor and 15+ as a Certified Financial Planner)

Politics (Don’t believe if if you see it on the evening news, even the video can be fishy)

Guns (NRA Certified Trainer in Shotgun, Pistol and Refuse to be a Victim Classes)

Bacon (cmon look at the name of the website)

Jesus (not even close to being an expert, however the fact I have survived the first two in this list proves he and I have a relationship)

So that being said, I hope to have some links to what I have been reading and be here to answer questions related to this list as well as any others you come up with.

All the best
