The POINT I'm addressing is ANYBODY who keeps 100% of their retirement account assets in his employer's stock deserves the ENRON result. I repeat again: the ENRON employees got what they deserved. Bad things happen to ignorant and stupid people. It's been that way since Adam and Eve.

Definitely a "Takers" point of view. To hell with every one else.

What would you expect from a man who wrote the following one day after the bombing in New York?

Like I said before, if America wants to play with matches, it should expect to get her fingers burned.

Case in point: in Costa Rica, the Americans are flying seven Apache helicopters "assisting" us with her "War on Drugs". This has caused the price of marijuana here to go from $5/oz to about $15 per ounce. I know several GRINGO ex-pats who would love to knock down those Apaches with those cheap hand-held Stinger missles.

If you play like to play hockey or soccer, sooner or later one of the other teams will score a goal on you. America got scored on yesterday.
