As a result, it is plain to see we are heading for a period of time between 2019 and 2021 when no substantive legislation of any kind can make it through both houses of Congress and/or receive the chief executive's imprimatur.

Gridlock is a wonderful governor that acts like negative feedback to limits the power of all elected and unelected bureaucrats. My second most loved outcome over 'us' beating 'them' over the head.

Maybe but I doubt that such a scattershot investing strategy can beat a properly focused effort.

For the next two years, buying big company stocks is virtually a sure bet.

Free advice is worth what you pay for it.
