I have been asked by several readers what I am doing as a result of the proposed bail-out provisions being bantered about by the powers that be. Mine is a multi-faceted approach specifically designed for my best interests, just like Goldman Sachs.
First, I have petitioned the SEC to add my name to the No-Short List. Although I have no shares, I just don't want to be hassled by anyone and I figure getting put on the list will scare away any detractors.
Second, I've asked the Fed to take over all my credit card debt, which in retrospect was a mistake, as well as to reverse or assume any of my trades taken in 2007-2008 that resulted in capital losses. Certainly my losses in these transactions are something better suited for the Fed's balance sheet then my own. Furthermore, all that credit card debt is hampering my ability to buy high ticket items on credit and if I was relieved from such a burden I could resume my vigorous contribution to a strong and expanding US economy.
Now these steps may or may not be beneficial to any one individual, so I suggest you consult with your own personal adviser, or Suze Orman, before attempting any of these strategies on your own.
