Thur. May 10, 2018 – trouble in the middle east, what? Again?

66F and very nice out this am. Too bad it won’t stay that way.

Trouble in the middle east is heating up again. Between the iranians stomping their feet and demanding the death of the west (us specifically, but the israelis too), and the israeli response (which is meant to remind the mad mullahs that they can and will ‘reach out and touch someone’), and turkey up to its own game, things are once again getting sporty.

Don’t be sure it won’t spill over and slosh onto us.

Macro economic and geo political times are changing. During periods of great change, there is great stress. Lot’s of rice bowls get threatened. Lot’s of people just biding their time might suddenly make a move. Not much we can do on a global level, but we can make individual decisions and take individual actions to position ourselves to ride thru the changes.

If you’ve been dragging your feet about a prep or action that would help you, time to move on that.
