The Leader Of The Free World Stumbles

Today, the interests of Ukraine, Israel, and the United States have become fused into one. While it may be difficult for those within the US Borders to see this, it is becoming increasingly apparent to the rest of the world. The latest UN Vote for a Cease-Fire in Gaza had 120 Nations affirm a halt in fighting, while a mere 13 other countries joined the United States in voting to continue the fight.

The Forgotten Regulation T

Today, Financial Leverage is simply the way we do business. Most of us don't give it a second thought: when we go to the store, we pull out the "plastic" and pay for our goods and items.
