There was some beef, unfortunately it was a piece of six week old chuck that fell behind the grinder. We kept smelling it, and when we finally found out what it really was it was fairly disgusting.
The mistake many people made is thinking there ever really was any sort of "alternative" presented by the "wonder twins". It was a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. It was a lack of actually saying what it was they were presenting that made it carry on as long as it did. Whenever anything concrete emerged from the 30 paragraph streams of unintelligible consciousness, it was quickly torn apart by people who actually know what they're talking about.
Nobody knows whats going to happen or where things are going to go tomorrow, so stick with good asset allocation, take ~ 3-5% of your portfolio as needed and enjoy your retirement ya rich old fart.
