What is this all about? If a person gives you advice and you follow that advice then its your risk, is it not?


"I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend, if you have one."

"Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second ... if there is one."
- Winston Churchill, in response.

While I no longer participate in polls, I do think Mr. Hawk has a sound grasp on financial investing and does quite well. There are differences between his methods and Mr. Bear's but I believe they both manage their money in a manner far beyond my current level of comprehension.

I hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong but I believe that Jayhawk depends on reported information and then uses charts and figures to confirm his conclusions.

On the other hand...

Regardless of the fact that he's a voracious reader, I believe that mcbear gives more weight to number crunching first and then uses anecdotal and expert information to confirm his analysis.

This poll is unfair. Since most of those who have taken Jayhawk's advice have either pawned their PC or committed suicide, his true score can not be known.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

The only thing he's persuaded me to do is to grow a bushy mustache, buy a leather cap and get my nipples pierced.
