The above picture is me and Angry Rich. He got caught in the big storm the other day, the one throwing off those tornadoes. He will tell his adventure in an interview later today, which I will then post as a podcast. If all goes well.

TRUMP changes the subject in an instant…again.

This time threatening tariffs on Mexico if they don’t stop those migrants caravanning through their country. So get on it Mr. Presidente.

Of course the markets go wobbly. Because that’s what they do.
