What a waiste.

Well, I can finally come out and tell those caps players that read my blog in regards to the refresh(ing) while ending pick blog was a waiste of time. Here is why I wrote it.

I got tired of waisting my time reading blogs about how one player dis-likes other players. Who cares? It might be fun to joke around with certain players, but only in good fun. I think some players miss the real point of this site. We are called FOOLS....you can take it two different ways. The way Buffett and Graham suggested or the idea that we are just looking to have some fun while we lose and make (earn) some money. I am all for the fun.....if you couldn't tell.

I think I fell for it one time or another with a player along time ago, but I decided from that first time it was a waiste of time. It was while downwithinfidels while he was playing. I wish he was still playing, but to each their own. I never commented on his blog after the post, but I still learned and had some fun reading some of his comments/blogs.

My suggestion for those players that are missing the point on CAPS is simple. Keep your perspective lite. There are bigger issues that we face than if a player is real or not. If they have 20 different accounts or 1. 

Just so I don't waste your time here is a link for Ronald Regans speeches. I heard one on Mark Lavines radio show (sp?) the other night and figured I would put it up for the whipping from the fellow capsters. 

Speeches of Ronald Reagan

 The one I heard was "Time for Choosing"....enjoy

"government programs are the closest thing to eternal life that we will see on this earth."

Ronald Regan........this wasn't a telescript speech. His own mind and his own words.

Sorry if the other blog was a waste.

madcow,

Exactly! Jeez. Caps is great becuase it is educational and FUN. If wanted to listen to a bunch of pseudo-intellectuals argue with eachother, I would just sit in on a Systems Engineering meeting at an Aerospace company (unfortunately I do exactly that on a daily basis).

The point here is to have fun, contribute, find out new ways of looking at stocks / the market / the economy / life. If you can't do that and, at the very least, be civil, then SHUT UP.

I too am sick of all the negative player-specific blogs. I don't read them but the headlines on the blog page are becoming all-too-common. 

Remember, this is supposed to be fun. Relax, learn and have fun people :)

Thanks for some perspective madcow :)

madcow and binve - I stopped blogging when CAPS became a popularity contest.  But I still enjoy reading blogs from some players, including both of you.  Keep it up!

Ha nice to see you get some rec love madcow!

I don't know why people bother to write character attack blogs. I know I have better things to do than that especially in weather like we 've been having (well except for today)  :)

Good post.  People who consistently talk smack on this blog are like that whiney pussy who immediately shuts his mouth when the stakes become real (ass whooping).  The problem with this site is that the stakes never become real.  That's why we will have to keep on sorting through garbage blogs to get the information that we want.

 Thanks for the blog.

How crushing to have missed this blog when it posted.  Thank goodness for the highlight blog that brings some of the really good posts back to light once in a while.  Some of my favorite folks were here and I didn't even see.  After April 15, I'm going to do something daring....I wonder what.  ROLLERCOASTERS!!  I need a day of nothing but rollercoasters.  Madcow if you set a blog for silly youtubes, I will find you a few to make your day go better!
