ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR INVESTMENT PROFESSIONAL BEFORE MAKING ANY INVESTMENT DECISION

Rick Ackerman is the editor of Rick’s Picks, an online service geared to traders of stocks, options, index futures and commodities. His detailed trading strategies have appeared since the early 1990s in Black Box Forecasts, a newsletter he founded that originally was geared to professional option traders. Barron’s once labeled him an “intrepid trader” in a headline that alluded to his key role in solving a notorious pill-tampering case. He received a $200,000 reward when a conviction resulted, and the story was retold on TV’s FBI: The Untold Story. His professional background includes 12 years as a market maker in the pits of the Pacific Coast Exchange, three as an investigator with renowned San Francisco private eye Hal Lipset, seven as a reporter and newspaper editor, three as a columnist for the Sunday San Francisco Examiner, and two decades as a contributor to publications ranging from Barron’s to The Antiquarian Bookman to Fleet Street Letter and Utne Reader.

To My Readers:

I have sent the following note to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Holman Jenkins of the WSJ Journal. It is a MUCH better idea than squandering $2 trillion sending out checks to…EVERYBODY. Here is what the President needs to do. Forward this to your Congressman if you agree:

President Trump needs to mobilize the Army to set up Civil Conservation Corps/WPA-type work camps to rebuild America. Virus-test each recruit who shows up, train them, then put them to work. The mobilization would be similar to the WWII effort, when crash courses turned no-nothings into navigators, bombardiers and radiomen in mere weeks/months.

Taxpayers would be getting a much better value for their $2 Tr than sending checks/debit cards out to every household.

This would be a huge political winner for the President, but also for America. Everyone has talked about rebuilding America’s infrastructure, but this is a great opportunity to actually do it.

Sincerely,

Rick Ackerman
