Natural Gas

Fixing The Economy IS Easy

Social Security
Means test benefits. If you made twice the median salary in your last 5 years of employment, you  get reduced benefits.
Eliminate the income limits. Why should you stop paying in just because you made more than $106,800? There are no income limits on medicare.

Revenues
Legalize and tax marijuana. That may be $40 billion to $100 billion in new revenue!
Legalize and tax sports betting. Although only 35 states currently allow "gaming", that number is sure to grow. Adding $50 million to a state budget will help to eliminate the need for federal dollars.

Economic Growth
A natural gas based economy. Get fleet vehicles and 18 wheelers running CNG. Get Detroit making those vehicles. And export LNG to other countries (USA natural gas is $2.76 but it can be liquified and sold much higher.

Homeless
Make shuttered schools into shelters. They have showers, gyms, bathrooms, cafeterias, computers, and plenty of room for beds. Laid off teachers can re-train these folks in the Cheapo Groovo system, which has no layoffs or outsourcing.

I'm seeing natural gas at $4.00 by December. Play it with UGAZ. Here are my reasons:

La Nina will increase the number of tropical storms in the Atlantic, which has been on the quiet side for the past three seasons.

During one week last month, the country used up a little of its gas reserves for the first time during a summer in 10 years, according to a report released Monday by the U.S. Department of Energy.

It became cheaper for power plants to burn gas than coal. In April last year, natural gas generated more electricity than coal in the U.S. for the first time in decades.

The Frigging Fracking Fallacy

I'm not a geologist, but from the alternative articles I've read, natural gas will explode sometime between now and 2022.

The play for me is $BOIL and I'm boxing in the current price by selling out of the money calls and selling out of the money puts.
