Bleeding Heart Greed (XLF,UNH,NKE,LMT)

What’s lost in the daily news cycle is something far more precious than just the latest polling numbers or the markets last jot and tittle.   In fact, it’s not just the news (which has an abnormally tight strangle-hold on our attention) but all of modern life that militates against the most important and meaningful part of our existence – our relationship with those around us.   In order to make a living, ‘get ahead’, ‘keep up with the Schultzs and generally be considered one of the in crowd, we do any number of ridiculous things to our loved ones and friends, some of which have drastic consequences.   Take, for instance, our penchant to farm out our children to day care – from as young as six months old!  And after that, to turn them over to preschools at age three, junior kindergartens at four, after school ‘enrichment’ programs as soon as they’re able, summer camps and whatever the hell else we can sign them up for in order to keep them out of our hair while we earn that extra buck to pay for the illegal who’s cleaning our house and let us vacation in Nauru over Xmas…
