Weekly Musings Reports: Reader Comments and Samples

What readers are saying about the Musings Reports
I’ve said before, your blog is my favorite and I like the Musings even more. For me, you are "pure," meaning interested in useful understanding and not contaminated with hidden agendas. I vote for you to keep on being yourself, and enjoying it.

I just wanted to tell you how much of a bargain I am getting for a few hundred bucks invested over a few years. Brendan O.
What makes you a channel worth paying for? It's actually pretty simple - you possess a clarity of thought that most of us can only dream of, and a perspective that allows you to focus on the truth with laser-like precision. Jim S.
I love your musings, Charles! What a wonderful gift to your subscribers! Carrie
Very insightful and covers many areas where I may not be focused due to my daily routine! John S. (active duty overseas, U.S. Navy)
I love it!!!! thank you for putting this together. So useful to get a "sane" appraisal of what is going on, rather than a hyped emotional "this is how you should think and feel." The internet can supply anyones particular need for a conspiracy-backed theory, but using data from multiple sources (give me the facts) increases the credibility dramatically of what the actual "big picture" is. And of course, I love your dissertation & dissection of what is going on, with just a "touch of acerbic wit" to spice it up a bit. Amy C.
