So screw Jet Blue.

In which Mr TwoScrewsLoose demonstrates to us all his simply FURmidable powers of poetic composition...
"The sphinx set riddles for people which they could not solve and the sphinx devoured them." Russian poet Ilia Ehrenberg reflecting years later upon the debacle of the Bolshevik Revolution and civil war

"In any case, experience shows people are unlikely to change their ways without a cataclysm of existential proportions" Meinhard Meigel, German economist and demography expert on his prophecy of a Wagnerian abyss of social and economic chaos

"We believe that here is no easy way out of this mess, and that the chance of a benign outcome, while hopefully possible, is quite low." Comstock Partners 3-17-2005

"Not without a shudder may the human hand reach into the mysterious urn of destiny." Junk email promoting the sale of Valium, Viagra, Soma and Cialis. Of course, we AMERICANS need not WORRY about such CLAPTRAP!!!

"The trouble about myths, or lies, is that those who foster them are stuck with them." Edward Crankshaw

"I don't buy the idea that a crash will come without warning. There are always warnings. All crashes have certain common technical preconditions." Doc (snorjt)

"YOU look IMPORTANT. Are you important, or just....WEIRD?"
"Bob I am" at a political gathering, to HRFF, 9-29-04

"Are YOU C.I.A.???"
"No, I'm not "CIA"."
"Well, you sure LOOK LIKE you're C.I.A.!!!"

Lead singer of the rock band KISS to HRFF at a luggage carousel at SeaTac airport circa 1996

"Unlike you, I use words people can understand." Doc

"America at the moment, with its faith-based currency, faith-based economy and faith-based government, might be a heaven for those who love faith, but it's a hell for those of us that respect evidence." The Daily (W?)Reckoning, circa 9-17-04

"What should be clear at this point is that even huge fiscal stimulus and unprecedented financial excess are incapable of fostering a sound and self-sustaining economic expansion. The paramount issue, today and going forward, is the deeply maladjusted U.S. economy and its increasing unresponsiveness to even enormous yet misdirected financial stimulus. Both the Financial Sphere and Economic Sphere are severely maladjusted." Doug Noland's Credit Bubble Bulletin, Aug 24 '04

"U.S. dollar purchasing power relies almost entirely on the difference between interest rates in Japan and the higher rates in the United States." Warren Pollock, Prudent Bear essay circa 9-04

"What about your replacements? the Children. What do we tell them when the whole thing caves in?" HyperTiger

I agree. Uncle Buck looks like road kill to me.

Art Crashin might be one of the few guys on Crapvision who speaks his mind from time to time, and has admitted in so many words that this past six months has been far more about smoke and mirrors than funnymentals. I think he is as nervous right now as he's ever been. He didn't say that, it is just my read of him.

He knows what the dollar is telling the world, and he knows that the world is about done buying dollars and other US paper, and he knows what comes after that.

There are many things that the Fed can control, and there are many that they can't. Unless they plan to do it militarily, I don't think you can force foreigners to continue to throw good money after bad forever.

Can it bounce? Of course it can. But is the top in? It sure feels like it.

Just heard a mouthpiece for the National Retail Association say "it's OK if people in the northeast can't get out to do their Christmas shopping this weekend, there's still plenty of time left to shop before Christmas." When pressed, she admitted that the affected area represents 25% of the US retail business in the country, and agreed that there will be "some effect".

This single snow storm will be blamed for the drubbing that all retail stocks are about to endure...mark my words.

Beware: SON OF SNOWZILLA.

It took four hours for a trip that is normally less than one hour. Not the same intensity as last year's storm, but this one is big and sloppy and is sitting on the NY metro/mid-Atlantic region.

It should hose shopping this weekend, so the effect on equity markets may differ. It is conming at a point of Astro stress and could drain some of that streess, though with the extension of pm commute drive time, it cause more stress instead.

Poll: Optimism on Economy Boosts Bush

I put the whole article over on Polystool.
http://www.capitalst...?showtopic=4279

. . . ."People are increasingly comfortable about job security for themselves and for those they know - 44 percent now, compared with 35 percent in early October.

And more approve of the way Bush is handling the economy - 50 percent compared with 45 percent earlier, according to the poll conducted for the AP by Ipsos-Public Affairs. Support for his handling of other domestic issues like education, health care and the economy, at 47 percent, has not shifted significantly.

The president's re-election numbers have slightly improved, with 41 percent saying they will definitely vote for him and 36 percent definitely against him. One in five is considering voting for someone else. In mid-November, people were evenly split, 37 percent for and against. . . ."

Shorty, tanks for posting that Indonesia article.

At first I agreed with your intro....that the US might look like that in 2005...but after I thought about it, I'm not so sure. US urbanites will run screaming to the goobermint instead.

The vast majority of urbanites I know, or read, have a real attitude towards rural living and rural people. They think rural folk are simpleminded, and from that they assume that rural life is so easy. They believe that if the stool hits the fan, they can just drive on out there and immediately be OK.

They have NO idea how many skills and tools are required, how much TIME it takes to acquire the skills and knowledge, and to get one's spread prepared. Ya can't put seeds in raw dirt, and be eating fresh corn an hour later! It takes MONTHS to grow food.

I got a baaadd feeling about the future for urban yuppies.... :P

It won't be over until we are crying...That is what I'm waiting for the crying...

The clicking of the heels together until they bleed while wailing in anguish there's no place like home, theres's no place like home...

The I feel a great disturbance in the force as though millions of people screamed out in pain...then were suddenly silenced stage

When the Debtstar fires it's hyperdeflationary implosion beam and vaporises the monetary system.

When they are saying you can only identify a collapse of the global economic and monetary system in hindsight even though we named the policy in 1979 the controled destruction of the economy...

It won't be over until it's over...
"We are completely dependant on the commercial banks. Someone has to borrow every dollar we have in circulation, cash or credit. If the banks create ample synthetic money (at the request of the consumer) we are prosperous; if not, we starve. We are absolutely without a permanent money system.... It is the most important subject intelligent persons can investigate and reflect upon. It is so important that our present civilization may collapse unless it becomes widely understood and the defects remedied very soon." --Robert H. Hemphill, Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank,1938...

Lance Lewis continues to harp on an imminent gold stock collapse, "deflationary spiral, etc." just like Bob Prechter.

Maybe he's right.

But if he's wrong, I'm going to hang him for it.

I'll cut and paste each one of his warnings the last couple of weeks, and document how much profit I would have lost if I had heeded his warning.

And worse, the losses if I had shorted HMY and GFI at the same time.

Somebody is about to get stuffed big time.

Somebody is going to be a Big Hero, or a Goat.

Might be me.

Might be Lance.

We'll find out next week.

I see a big fat triangle waiting to be busted to the upside. Too many shorts out there.

I see a tripletop not unike the one on the USD back in '02.

The pig is wobling just looking for an excuse to trip into the gutter where it can wallow around with the USD.
