I saw all the little lucky charm symbols next to my name the other day.  This club, that club, Score 100, Score Leader, All-star (am I in a contract year?), all pretty cool stuff.  But I saw the little YES and wasn't sure what that was so I looked it up.  Apparently it implies that I'm always positive and somewhat connotates that I'm always bullish.  Well, if folks have read some of my 10 minute blog postings, they will know I'm not always bullish.  In fact, I got my ranking largely on the back of inverse ETFs, which given my decent score implies I've been bearish at the right time.  In any case, I've decided to never lose my YESman tag, so I'm going to stick with what I'm doing.  Nothing but green thumbs for this guy.  I think it's more Patriotic (not really but since everybody wants to be called more Patriotic than the next guy I'll grab on) and we're so close to bottoming why bother changing now.  [more]

Yeah, you know I'm not going to be too wordy or very explainy here, and I'm going out on a limb so I'll brief to maintain plausible deniability.  So here goes the quick and scary leap into nowhere land.    [more]
