Pleased to see that Machinehead is back from his travels, or rather travails... Must be working off the jetlag this morning.

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty

Ya, I would have zoomed into Vancouver for a quick bevvy at the airport had I known he was there for a few hours.
Anthony caused pearls to be dissolved in wine to drink the health of Cleopatra; Sir Richard Whittington was as foolishly magnificent in an entertainment to King Henry V; and Sir Thomas Gresham drank a diamond, dissolved in wine, to the health of Queen Elizabeth, when she opened the Royal Exchange; but the breakfast of this roguish Dutchman was as splendid as either. He had an advantage, too, over his wasteful predecessors: their gems did not improve the taste or the wholesomeness of their wine, while his tulip was quite delicious with his red herring.here

Not for the housebuilders who would end up holding a record inventory bag if the housing market drys up.

:lol: :lol:


major, all I can think of is that they changed the definition....sort of like the jobless-claim stats.

Perhaps they now include anything that's even had a permit applied for :P

Is this adding up? WAMU and UPC say mortgages down 50%; Housing Starts up a record 4% in November.

Yep. Just like in 1991 and 1982, the spec builders will be caught in the middle of a huge building glut at the peak of the downturn.

My favorties, where I grew up, were the paved cul-de-sacs to nowhere. Good bike riding and skateboarding.

CPI: -0.2%
