More Rioting. Don’t Worry, We’ll Get Through This.

by James Hendrickson on August 27, 2020 · 2 comments

I got up this morning and started reading the news.  Evidently there was another round of riots in Minneapolis, Oakland and aggressive protests in Portland, Oregon last night.  This comes on the heels of civil disturbances in Chicago and Denver earlier this month.

Here is the latest from Portland.

It’s normal to let bad news impact your thinking. Don’t.

Don’t Worry. America is going to get through this crisis. We’ve weathered two world wars, a civil war, several financial crises, and the turbulent 1960s.

Here is a 2015 quote from Warren Buffet illustrating our nation’s long run promise:

??? 240 ????? ??’? ???? ? ???????? ??????? ?? ??? ??????? ???????, ??? ??? ?? ?? ???? ?? ?????. ???????’? ?????? ????? ?? ???????? ??? ?????????? ???? ???????? ?? ??? ???? ??? ?????? ????. ???????? ?????? ???????? ???????? ???? ?? ??????? ??? ??????? ???? ???? ????????. ???, ???, ???????’? ???? ???? ???? ??? ?????? ???? ????? ??????? ???.

So, keep saving, keep making smart investing decisions and by all means, take care of the people in your life.

Not worried about riots here in rural America, there just aren’t enough people around to have one.

Thanks Steve, my office is about six blocks away from where a bunch of the rioting happened in Portland. Its been an exercise in believing in the Angels of our better nature, for sure.
