I am so f***** sick of this pandemic. It just needs to...go away already!
So, as I mentioned to you recently, I got the Pfizer booster shot the day after I got back from Atlanta, which was NOT a good idea on my part.
When I shot the PBS show over there, I was stressed out. Probably had a lowered immune system because of the show stress and the air travel.
I wasn't back home for 24 hours...and then I get the booster shot. (This was on December 20th.)
Five days later I was back on a plane heading to the Midwest. Three days after that I was on a ship cruising through the Caribbean.
My immune system took a severe beating MOSTLY because of getting the booster shot. So, I guess it wasn't a shock to me when I contracted Omicron in Nassau, Bahamas. I wasn't even there for an hour, but I guess that's all it took.
When I came back home, the full thrust of the sickness settled in and I finally put two and two together: holy moly cannoli...I have Omicron. I had every symptom.
This was three weeks ago and I still feel like I'm tired all the time. I have a runny nose just out of the blue every so often. And I just don't feel...quite right. It's hard to describe.
My Hawaii retreat is coming up. And the stupid f****** state of Hawaii decided to MANDATE the booster shot...otherwise they'll treat you as "unvaccinated" and require a 5-day quarantine upon arrival. Because of this, I essentially twisted my daughter's arm to get the booster because she'll be attending the retreat with me. And I didn't want to deal with any kind of quarantine period due to me having to serve my students in attendance for the event.
This was a BIGMISTAKE!
My daughter got so sick from the booster -- sicker than I'd ever seen her before -- because of this f****** shot. I felt so bad, so guilty as a parent for making her do this.
Here I am, trying to do the "right" thing, and it completely backfired. All I could do was cry and tell her how sorry I was for making her get that shot.
It made me think about just how ridiculous this whole "shot" thing is. And how (I believe) we've taken this "pandemic" way too far. (Isn't two years long enough, Dr. F****** Fauci??)
I got all three shots. I got all three (so far) variants of Covid. One was before my vaccine. (The "original" Covid-19, January 2021.) One was after my vaccine. (Delta variant, August/September 2021.) And the variant that made me sick was the Omicron virus last month.
Because the f****** vaccine does NOTHING for Omicron, folks.
It's like a bad flu. And there is no vaccine for the flu. Or the common cold. Or any "seasonal" anything.
I'm so sick of all these politicians...and especially that snake oil salesman...that Fauci bastard...for shoving this vaccine down everybody's throat for so long. Maybe the vaccine helps with Covid. I don't know if it does or doesn't. But I will tell you that it doesn't do jack sh*t for Omicron. And yet they're STILL force-feeding this vaccine to people KNOWING that it does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for Omicron...or ANY of the variants to come.
So...what the f*ck?!
It's a total scam...that's what it is!
Now, you know me. Normally I don't get all political about anything because it's a waste of time...and too many people want to argue with me when I do. But...don't you think there is something REALLY WRONG with what's going on these days?? Do YOU see it?? I'll bet you do!
My theory -- and I could be wrong -- but eventually this whole charade MUST come to a quick end. There's only so long everybody is going to keep going on with this sham and then the government is going to have to swiftly re-evaluate keeping everybody imprisoned with this whole "get-the-shot-or-else" bullsh*t. Or "sit-at-home-and-eventually-go-bankrupt" crap. Or "you-better-get-vaccinated-or-you'll-never-go-anywhere-again" nonsense.
Biden...the liar. "I'm only asking you to keep your masks on for first 100 days."
That was more than a year ago...and I know I suck at math but I'm pretty sure we're WELL PAST 100 DAYS.
Yet here in California, we're all about masks here. People will mad-dog you, pick fights, and yell at you if you're not wearing a mask...you know, that thing that does NOTHING to protect you from anything while preventing you from getting enough oxygen to your brain?
When did everybody LOSE THE LOGIC in thinking?
Think about it!
If someone is standing 6 to 8 feet away from you and they are smoking a cigarette, if you're wearing a mask, would you smell the cigarette smoke?
The answer is...HELL YES YOU WOULD!
Virus particles are about the same size as smoke particles. So....again, when did we lose our COMMON SENSE??
If you can smell cigarette smoke through a mask, those viral particles are ALSO getting through the mask. HELLO! Basic LOGIC, folks!
So...why are we still wearing the masks?
Ah, yes! I'll tell you why. Because Dr. Fauci...MASTER BRAINWASHER...who, if you recall, at the VERY BEGINNING of all this, actually SAID that MASKSDONOTHING to prevent the contraction of a virus or bacteria, flip-flopped and decided that we all needed to lose more oxygen to our brains because...well, when you have oxygen to your brain, YOU CAN STILL THINK FOR YOURSELF. And they don't want that, now, do they?
To be clear, I'm NOT an "anti-vaxxer" or a "pro-vaxxer." I'm neither. I don't care what you do or don't do with your own health and body. It's your body. It's your health. Do what you want. But don't mad-dog me if I don't want to wear a mask anymore. If you're that threatened about Covid-19 (based on being brainwashed night after night for two years while watching the useless news), instead of expecting thousands of people around you to wear a mask (that does nothing for you) to conform to your false notion that it'll make you safe, STAY HOME INSTEAD! Stop expecting the world to "bow down" to your false idea of what you need for own personal safety. It's not the world's job to roll out a red carpet for you everywhere you go. And you can have your meals delivered to your house for another year or two until you: (1) get sick of being lied to, or (2) jump off a bridge because you're so mentally gone due to having no "normal" existence anymore.
Anyway, that's just the way I see it.
Thankfully, after a full week of being sick, my daughter Brie is starting to feel better. She's still tired. She gets worn down quickly during the day like I do. But she's on the mend, I hope.
I just feel bad because...who the hell knows WHAT is in those shots and what the long-term effects are going to be on people?! Ever since I got my booster, I have these weird pains in my heart, like "pinching" or something. A nurse told me that little kids getting these vaccine shots are now showing signs of ENLARGED HEARTS after getting vaccinated. What is this poison doing to us??
It's pretty f****** scary when you think about it, isn't it?
See you at the top!

This is, by far, the most profitable and powerful online marketing secret I've ever revealed to any of my students. If you don't do anything all year, this is the ONE THING you DO NOT want to miss. CLICK HERE RIGHT NOW!
One of my most used personal credit cards is Capital One. I used it for all of my personal expenses.
Or at least I did until just a few days ago.
I've been a loyal customer for exactly 15 years. I always pay off my entire balance each and every month. And the only reason I used the card was for the rewards.
So, suddenly without notice, they closed my account.
Not only did they close my personal account but they also closed the useless business Capital One Sparks card I had. You know, the one with the "whopping" $2,500 credit line they gave me for my business? (Which is laughable considering all my other business credit cards give me a minimum of $20,000.)
So, I called them on the phone for at least some kind of explanation.
Did I mistakenly ever miss a payment? Nope. All good there.
Did my credit score drop? Nope. It's higher than ever.
Has my overall credit "usage" increased? Nope. Everything is paid off.
Did I go over the limit? Nope. Not by a long shot.
Did the card go "dormant," meaning I haven't used it in a long time? Nope. I used the damned card nearly everyday.
Who the hell knows what happened?
I was curious as to whether this happened to other people. Turns out it has.
Evidently Capital One thrives on deadbeats who can't pay their credit cards (or who carry a large balances for long periods of time) so they can make money off the interest, fees, attorney fees (for collections), etc.
I don't fall into that category and never have. So, I was "discarded" for essentially being useless to their business model...because I pay my bills. (Go figure!)
Being someone with pristine credit who pays their bills off every month and on time doesn't make them any money. So, in the trash I go!
I also am feeling that perhaps they are having some financial problems (probably due to the impending credit bubble that is about to blow up in their faces) so they have to trim down their credit lines. First to go, people who pay their bills and never make them any money in interest and fees.
So, off with my head!
At first I was upset. Then I started thinking about it. Capital One sucks. They have always have sucked. Especially with their cheesy commercials: "What's in your wallet?"
Uh...not Capital One!
And what the hell do I need them for?
I have so many other better credit cards I should be using.
Somehow I ended up with a BMW Visa card a few years ago that I almost never use. And since I plan on buying myself a new 8-series for my birthday this year, what better time to start racking up points I can apply to the down payment on my new car? Right?
When life throws you lemons...go buy a $100,000+ luxury car.
I think that's how the saying goes. At least in my world it does!
A dear friend and business partner of mine had passed away last week.
His name was Dr. Peter Barrington.
Many of you know him and knew his legacy as an investor. If you don't know, this man took a simple trading strategy and turned it into hundreds of millions of dollars.
A trading secret that didn't even have a name...until I decided to name it "The Slice."
Looking back, that name -- The Slice -- is pretty funny.
One day he was showing me how his trading system worked. And he was trying to describe these "spokes" and how to determine the strike prices when deciding to buy a put or call option.
My visual-learning self blurted out... "So, kind of like the wedge of a lemon or orange."
I remember distinctly because Dr. Barrington paused, chuckled, and said, "Well, I guess so!" It was almost as if he magically saw what I told him I was seeing, never considering such a thing even a moment before.
It took me MANY YEARS in arm-twisting to get him to allow me to promote his system which I appropriately named The Slice Trading System. And I felt like I had moved a mountain after about 6 long years of begging when he finally said, "Yes!"
Of course, that victory was immediately dampened when he told me WHY he decided to do it. "I've been diagnosed with cancer and they're giving me only six months to live."
This was back in 2018.
And being the tough old bastard I came to know him to be, it didn't surprise me that he beat cancer...then beat it after he went into remission. This trend happened three times. Maybe four. I think I lost count.
Instead of living only 6 more months, he ended up getting more than 3 1/2 years...defying the Grim Reaper in ways I'd never thought possible.
Last spring, he started getting really sick again. I had a conversation with him about "fighting" and what it meant.
And he told me something surprising. He said, "We go our whole lives fighting for and against everything. And for what? It doesn't make that much sense to do that, does it?"
I had never heard him talk like that before. But then I realized at that moment. He must've read the books I mailed to him!
When he was in hospice care the first time, I sent him some books written by Esther Hicks. I remember the first two titles but the third escapes me. The first two I remember were: Ask and It Shall Be Given and The Astonishing Power of Emotions. The third book might have been The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent...but I'm not 100% certain. (If you haven't read those books, I highly recommend that you do. They can change your life!)
When I sensed that he was letting go, I didn't look at it as "giving up." I looked at it as "surrendering to a higher power" which is something I now try to do everyday with everything. It's really shifted my vice-grip on feeling like I have to control everything. He encouraged me to "go with the flow" more.
The last time I talked to Dr. Barrington was in December. It was right before he was to go back into hospice care. I remember him telling me that he was holding out until after the holidays so he didn't "ruin Christmas for the family," as he put it. But we both knew it would be his last Christmas. In fact, I doubted he'd escape 2021 alive, that's how bad he sounded.
The last thing Dr. Barrington told me was this: "Don't waste your life doing things you don't want to do for money. I can see you doing that sometimes. And life's too short for that."
I knew what he meant. And I silently began crying like a baby while I was still on the phone with him, not wanting him to hear my sobbing, not hearing much else he said after that.
You see, he knew I didn't want to do anything else in investing training including workshops and seminars for quite some time. He was proud of me when I concluded my trainings over the fall of 2021, never to do them again. And he also knew I was struggling with wanting to carry The Slice product line anymore because I was shifting everything about my company. Because I fought so hard to be able to market The Slice System to everyone, I didn't want to tell him, "Hey, I don't want to do this anymore." But I found out that he intuitively knew I didn't want the market and sell The Slice System anymore.
So, that's what he meant. "Don't waste your life doing things you don't want to do..."
And that's why I started crying.
Our agreement has always been that when he passes, I'd get 100% ownership and control over The Slice System. And while it's made both of us a lot of money over the years, I decided that I won't be promoting that product anymore.
So...if you want ANY of it, it's now or never. It's yet another thing added to the list that I won't be reprinting ever again. (For those of you interested in what I have left, CLICK HERE for the book and CLICK HERE for the system.)
See you at the top!

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, January 26th, Dr. Peter Barrington had passed away.
It took me a week to come to terms with his passing and I have been beside myself with grief since I received the news, as I've considered him a close friend of mine for 12 years.
Many of you know that Dr. Barrington had been fighting cancer for the past several years. He even survived hospice care a couple of years ago and was on the mend, thanks to a "secret" diet and nutritional concoction "prescribed" to him by some doctor from Switzerland.
But old habits die hard. And Dr. Barrington couldn't live his life without his diet high in sugar, carbs, and fat.
So, after slipping back into his old dietary habitual ways, his health rapidly deteriorated.
After the holidays, he was admitted into hospice again. Something told me that he wouldn't get out alive...and I was right.
I didn't know how to break this to my students. So, I waited until the time is right...and today is the day.
For those of you who don't know the body of Dr. Barrington's extraordinary work, he was the one who developed the stock trading strategy that I named "The Slice," since his trading technique remained "nameless" for the decades he used his system.
He made hundreds of millions of dollars with his stock trading secret. It wasn't until a few years ago when he finally let me allow others to enjoy the benefits of his powerful trading strategy.
In light of his passing, I decided that I no longer have it in me to promote and sell his trading system. Once we deplete our minimal inventory of all the trading books and The Slice Trading System, I won't be marketing or offering this program anymore.
For those of you with the Hot Tips forecasting newsletter, effective January 1st, it's 100% online. It's been written by Dr. Barrington's close assistant, Joshua, since around May or June of last year. Joshua is the only one alive on this planet who knows The Slice Trading Secret as well as Dr. Barrington had and he is doing the trading forecasts through the end of this year and possibly into next year. (Personally I think Joshua's trading forecasts are much more accurate than Dr. Barrington's...only because Joshua is of sound mind and Dr. Barrington hasn't been for too long.)
