An Interview with CMF_Fuskie

Last updated: 12/22/2015
The Fool:
Given a second chance, what financial decision would you like to do over?
CMF_Fuskie:
I probably would not be so deliberate in making financial decisions as I let opportunities go by the wayside while I do my due diligence. When you set such high expectations, it is hard for the actual investment to realize their perceived potential.
The Fool:
Make a confession.
CMF_Fuskie:
A confession. I confess I don't much like the Democratic party nor the Republican party. They both have more hot air than the Wizard in Oz. They are so busy pointing their fingers at each other that they forget those of us sops left in the middle who vote for them.
The Fool:
Have you had a brush with fame, the proverbial '15 minutes'? Tell us about it.
CMF_Fuskie:
In the 4th Grade I was selected to be a background extra for an awful movie called The Visitor. The plot does not bear repeating (it barely exists), but I wore an orange windbreaker and for a few seconds you can see me run from a school bus into the school building. I was also interviewed for the Atlanta paper on what it is like to be unemployed. The latter I would rather forget. The former I wish I could.
