Yes, maybe we have problems but the problems are not because the Asians are evil. We have a horrible education system, we have a horrible litigation system. We spend more on medicine than anybody in the world by several factors but our life expectancy is not even the top 25. We have more basic problems than a bunch of evil Asians.

My First Big Mistake In The Markets

My first big mistake I made in the markets came from a triumph. I decided the stock market was going to collapse and so I bought puts with all my money. I tripled my money in five months and I thought this was easy, I thought "yeah, I'm really gonna be rich someday." 

So, I sold my puts on the day the market hit bottom, then the market rallied as I thought it would, I sold short and two months later I was wiped out. But the worst part is that every one of the companies I sold short went bankrupt within two years. but I lost everything first because I didn't know the market did strange things.
