Nice, well balanced documentary. Compliments to Kaj, Doc.
And while we're on the subject, if any of you happen to get to the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show in Harrisburg tomorrow morning, stop by and see my sons BB gun team in action
Sorry I can't find a picture of them, they're a good lookin crew.
So here's a pic of my son and Grandmaster Jae C. Shin, the founder of the World Tang Soo Do Association, headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. My son and I are both now green belts in Tang Soo Do.
*(sorry pic was too big to upload.... I'm reducing, give it a few minutes )
There's a great pic floating around here somewhere of me breaking a chunk of 2x12, but I can't find it either.
By the time guns are outlawed, we will be invincible.

The video is right above your post. I will talk to him tomorrow. As a journalist, he is a great storyteller. His report on piracy was fascinating. The report on water boarding, where he allowed himself to be water boarded as a demonstration was powerful.
As a former Navy Seal he is quite familiar with advanced weaponry.I would not be at liberty to reveal his personal views, and in his journalism he reports the facts and tells a story straight down the middle. But there's always a message between the lines of the obvious. How one perceives that message will depend on their own prism.

never before seen negative quarterly earnings on the s&p500, swenlin talking another 50% decline:
50% here, 50% there and pretty soon we have some real bloody damage to portfilios...
lets get a test of the november lows first and see, possible 30-40% technical rally after said test,
an undercut of the lows should produce a buyable washout
otoh bradley model doesn't have another major turn until mid-July, perhaps we just slowly grind down
with 5-10% reaction rallies until then

But he really does need to get himself a one-handed open/close pocket knife. That thing where you put the back of the knife against your hip and push it closed went out with the Frug.
These work great, and you can get springs that do some cool stuff when installed properly

China watch: those looking for info may find this source worthwhile a bit from a recent post and link: My take is tha China like the U.S. has no plan B, so China will push the export button..
More terrible trade numbers from China
February 12th, 2009 by Michael
The thing to remember is that for the rest of the world it doesn’t really matter what explanation Chinese policymakers give for this high and rising trade surplus. They will consider the fact that with China’s export of overcapacity extremely high, and growing even further, anger within their political constituencies cannot help but rise. Of course China needs to fight rapidly rising unemployment, but so does nearly every other country in the world. At all costs China must move quickly to defuse the threat of trade war, but unfortunately I see little evidence that Chinese policymakers are even beginning to understand China’s role in the Great Global Imbalance.
And the problem is certainly not helped by actions like last week’s posting, on the website of the research institute associated with China’s Ministry of Finance, of a report arguing that China’s central bank should “actively guide” the exchange rate and devalue the RMB to about 6.93 against the dollar. The purpose of depreciating, the report said, was to help maintain economic growth and bolster employment.

Do you want to play into "MARK MY WORDS" game?
Mark my words that when the next Forbes billionaires list will be printed (I don't recall when that happens), assuming it will be calculated after the crash - at least 3% of former billionaires will be gone.
In some countries it will be more or less unchanged. In US it will be slightly changed. In eastern Europe it will be chopped by 50%.

Took a minute so I'll add it here. Grandmaster Jae C. Shin and my son.
What? You thought they'd be sparring?
Maybe next time..

I never saw anyone producing a reasonable way to calculate P/E for S&P. Simply adding all earnings together without weight seems useless for me. It's an acceptable approximation during normal mild recessions, but right now it's almost meaningless.

They must improve domestic demand. Stable currency must help with that, not a weak one.

They must do it faster. Killing bad banks is the road to recovery.
