Flockofsheeples. I liked the earlier Grand Funk stuff. The later albums were over produced IMHO. I liked the raw, power in the early stuff like Gimme Shelter and Time Machine. AWESOME!!

NONE of what I type, should be taken as financial advice.
And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest that you've sown
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone
And it's too late to loose the weight you used to need to throw around
So have a good drown, as you go down, alone
Dragged down by the stone.

Just catching up now due to internet problems at work.
On Google - it would be in the public interest to delay the Google offering until the SEC can figure out what securities laws they have broken. I am sure there were some, and I am sure within a few weeks there would be some lawsuits against the company. From information already disclosed, the SEC may have second thoughts about overlooking some obvious errors in the sale process.
I may be wrong and the sale will go ahead Wednesday, but those legal clouds will still be hanging overhead. I rate this "AVOID" in big letters.
MH was right earlier today, just sell.

Have been reading some of the comments on the astro for tomorrow.
What Iam watching closely is what happens in Iraq as this oppostion with mercury mars to Uranus falls right on the Iraqi ascendent for the 1922 chart and the one formed on June 28th with the new Iraqi goverment. Very difficult for any kind of a setelment to occur with this kind of configutaion especially with Mercury retrograde. When Mercury comes back direct in September there may be some chance of slowing down the current insurrection but not at this point.
As for the markets an aspect like this makes everyone "exciteable" and it also makes it impossible to make good sound decisions.I would have to say that any move up would be a lot of exciteable decisions and should be sold.On the other hand a spike say in oil and you could get excitable decisons in the other direction and as this is the market current trend probably best to go with it.Merrimon thinks an aspect like this indicates a possible change in trend but he has 27 day time interval for this to occur which to me makes it meaning less.
What do I think? Continued deteoriation of the secular environment keeps selling pressure and non buying pressure on track it has been on since July but we may work off over sold condtion by going sideways untill next crisis point between September 9th and 14th. Saturn is in a semi square ie45 degrees to mars and mercury and moveing to a conjunction of the US Mercury, opposite US Pluto.Hard to belvie this does not mean something for the markets that is bearsih in nature.
Saturn in Vedic astrololgy aspecting the US Neptune almost exactly so my guess is troubles with oil is the overwhelming factor.
But that may be to obvious. With an aspect configuration as explosive as this something often occurs totally out of the blue that no one was looking for.
Is my theory that a populist revolution is now occuring in the US that will end the Bush tyranny and more events confirming this will in the days to come be readily apparent. Remember Uranus is revolution, change, the over throw of entrenched power. As Mars Uranus and Uranus itself now all square the US Uranus the natives in the great land of ours are going to be getting decidedly rest less if such is not already the case.

One thing I think is certain. The more the world's central banks act to suppress the cost of long term capital, the more of it the market will demand, thereby keeping upward pressure on yields until the CBs have no choice but to relent. At that point we should see a massive final blowoff similar to that which occurred in 1980 and 1981. --Doctor Stool
