Are actually arguing that over the past, oh, fifteen years (longer, but we are using jimluckett's prescient call as the non-cherry-picking baseline), the best strategy for bond investments was not to keep them long-term? Based upon some negative years for a different bond strategy (BND etf)? And choosing a couple of years is not cherry-picking, while using today as the end point is?

Or are you simply arguing that bonds have not been all that great an investment? Because if that is your point, you have just won an argument against a straw man.
