In 2008, Kyle Bass was one of a select minority who believed that sub-prime mortgages were only building a bubble soon to collapse. In September, that bubble burst and Bass made a fortune. He had invested wisely, and the worldwide financial media was very interested to hear his story. Since then he’s had a regular media platform whenever he wants it, and Bass has never been shy about making use of that amenity. The plot thickens, though, because before the 2008 collapse, Bass was employed with Bear-Stearns, one of the top investment banks on Wall Street when the financial dominoes started knocking each other over. Shortly after his employment with Bear-Stearns dissolved, a journalist received a tip that was broadcast over the airwaves Monday morning. By the end of the week, Bear-Stearns had dropped so much in stock value, J.P. Morgan-Chase was forced to buy them out. Kyle Bass slipped the tip that dropped Bear-Stearns. In a way, he initiated what would eventually be the 2008 financial meltdown. He didn’t cause it, but he initiated it.
Kyle Bass also runs CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. This organization uses the sick to leverage stock drops on Wall Street. Bass short-sells his holdings when the drops hit and skips away with millions. Meanwhile the companies targeted, pharmaceutical corporations, lose so much money they have to curtail budgetary expenditure to departments like Research and Development. Return On Investment with R&D is always low. When a company loses assets, low-ROI depts. are the first to go. In the end, the sick lose medical advances, so all they get for CAD’s intervention is stagnation.
With these things in mind, the selection of Kyle Bass as a speaker at the next New Establishment Summit convention is slightly strange. Vanity Fair reports this event will take place on the 19th and 20th of October, 2016. The CEO of Amazon.com and the Vice President of Apple will also be speaking there. Both men are expected speakers–they’re industry leaders in technology and industry. They are who the event was made to bring together. But Kyle Bass is an outlier, and his socialist leanings make his inclusion as a speaker at the New Establishment Summit seem suspicious.
I was willing to leverage my retirement income to start a business, but I did not know how it would go until I actually made my way to Laidlaw & Company and talked to James Ahern and Matthew Eitner about it. These were great guys who I knew were going to help me, and they were helpful in showing me what I could do to start my business. I needed to have a broker who was going to be there for me no matter what I wanted to do, and I needed a broker who was going to help show me the right direction.
I was going to pull some money out of the account to start my business, and then I took an equal amount of money out of the accounts and put it into a much more powerful account. I did not like being so liberal with my investments, but I could gain all that money back. I earned the money back I took out for my business, and then I was about to start my business free and clear.
I stayed with Laidlaw & Company to help start a new account for my business, and now we are using that money to do new things that will help us invest. The company we started is very healthy, and it is very happy using Laidlaw & Company every year.
I think that a lot of people can get some help with their investments if they decide to go to Laidlaw & Company, but they are going to have to make sure that they have worked with people in the office who are experts in their area. I found someone who helps business. I know someone who is retiring at Laidlaw & Company, and there are still others who can make the most creative investments of their lives.

It is never easy when you have to put someone you love in an assisted living community. You hope it never has to come to that point, but when it does, it is important to be as prepared for it as possible and do your research and make sure you find the best place for your parents or grandparents. There is one place that is making a positive impact and really getting people talking and that place is The Manse on Marsh. They have a personal touch that is missing from a lot of places these days and they go above and beyond the call of duty to get things right.
They were recently named of the nation’s best and this is an honor that they take a lot of pride in, as they should. They work around the clock to get it right and they don’t rest until the job is done correctly. No matter what it takes, they are going to go above and beyond the call of duty to make their stay as comfortable as possible. I know they might be stubborn going in, but once they see the attention to detail and the amount of care they will be receiving, it won’t be long before they fall in love with it.
They received the “Caring Star” award and I love that word, caring. So many times today, I feel like places simply don’t care and they are simply going through the motions. You hear a lot of times about places like this where they mistreat older people or make them feel unsafe and uncomfortable. When you care, people can tell when it is authentic and when it is fake. There is nothing fake about Manse on Marsh. They are authentic, real, and they give it one hundred and ten percent. It is not just a cliche for them. It is a way of life, each and every day. Quite frankly, they don’t know any other way to behave. You can rest easy if you have to send someone here, as you know they will get the best care possible. There’s more information about this win, and how The Manse on Marsh accomplished such a feat on their official blog.
