Am I a "Niche" Blogger and Too Political to Touch?

Date: Sunday, April 4, 2021 6:57 AM EDT

Lately i have been having my seemingly never ending argument with TalkMarkets regarding my writings.  TalkMarkets claims that i am a "niche" writer and sometimes too political for them.  Along those same lines, yesterday i received a comment from a reader (follower) regarding my blog entitled "Just How Screwed Up Obama's Thinking Is or Was".  What follows is that comment regarding my most recent blog. 

"I don't think much politics gets published here. It's just too polarizing and too many of the authors are biased one way or the other. It's also doesn't have much to do with investing and this is an investing site. Why not send it to one of the many politics sites. Seems like there are more and more of those every day."

Hmmm, I thought.  Then i responded back to my probably ex-follower with the following comment.

"In that case invest in the United States and buy an index fund for the S&P 500.  You also might want to get a smaller index fund of the Russell 2000 to go along with your S&P 500 one.  When globanomics gets to be the norm, buy an index fund of the Global 500 or Global 2000.  These are the best and safest investments that you can make.  If you want, i will tell you what investments funds i invest in.  Last year my investments went up nearly 40% and that was from a fund geared mostly towards the NASDAQ.  This year i split my investments up into two different big company U.S. funds and i am doing well again, beating both the DOW and the S&P averages--again.

Politics and investing--i am learning the two should never meet.  I find it curious that on a business, economic , and investment front that one cannot critic the policies used by either a democrat or a republican.  As a financial conservative democrat (did you know that one even existed) i reserve the right to continue to criticize so-called "investment" decisions that i think are counter to the betterment of the United States (e.g. TARP, infrastructure without balancing the budget).
