American Fever

Today’s American temperature is Minus 4. (Based on Trump’s favorability index today, 47% positive, 51% negative).

Vladimir Putin is a genius. Forget Ben Franklin’s skinflint adage that “A penny saved is a penny earned.” We need to follow the Putin Wealth Paradigm. Since 2000, Putin has made roughly $2.5 million dollars (or the ruble equivalent) in salary yet today he is the richest man on earth with a personal wealth of roughly $85 billion. While Franklin’s earned to savings ratio is 1-1, Putin’s is “A ruble saved is 34,000 rubles earned.” Make this genius Secretary of the Treasury. Forget Trump University. I’m going to sign up for Putin University.
