Russian President Vladimir (who wrestles wild animals topless) is set to invade Ukraine “to protect its interests and citizens”. Stocks don’t like turmoil and are currently down just over 1% (190 for the DOW).

On our own soil, we are still spending more than we earn: Personal Incomes up 0.3% and Personal Spending rose 0.4%. Pick your battles I say.
