    If you meant the 2013 furlough mess, the market actually went up through that slop. We had a GREAT investment year through the furlough. Nobody cared.

    Nobody will care what some politicians think the debt ceiling should be. Personally, I don't.

    They will simply not buy our Federal debt. What then?

    Today would have been a lousy day to make the trade anyway - unless you think we are in for a LONG downtrend. You would have just locked in fairly significant losses.

    Re: 14 years out, but feel like I'm behind

    One thing to consider is that C/S/I are risk based. Having a 14 year investment time horizon means you can invest all/most in C/S/I. It is tough to find (maybe impossible) a 14 year window where...
