Alstrydomous 9.09.....Are you PREPARED for Change???????????????????



July 17, 2009 – Comments (18)


Are you prepared for change......


Our Government has grown into a $6.5 Trillion dollor consumption machine.  Up until now we could feed it and our bankers at the same time......for the most part our politicians and bankers were happy.........but no more.....and the bankers refuse to lend any more money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We simply don't make enough money to sustain a $6.5 Trillion dollar government plus service OVER $40 Trillion dollar in debt......

We now can't pay both the bankers or government.....bankers would be broke unless the government gave them we give the bankers money and our States issue IOUs......

And if Government doesn't spend......our economy COLLAPSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You know it coming.....just look around at your neighbors.....the stress is everywhere

Glen Beck is warning you, Jon Stewert is warning you, Karl Denninger too, today the NY Times of all publications......


The masses are getting pissed off and restless.....we see protesting from California to is what everyone is talking about while silent just a few months back

The sheep are taking their heads out of the grass.......

And as long as the debt remains, the economy shrinks, and conditions get worse....MUCH WORSE!!!!!


Will you be allowed to learn the truth.....HIGH FREQUENCY TRADING runs the market, GS is the squid, corporate earnings are not much more than a Ponzi Scheme of government spending money it doesn't have......

Or will a "random" distraction make the whole game meaningless......


Alstrydomous has spoken.......the prognosticating personality of the screaming blogger Alstry

Prepare for know its coming

What a load of crap.  While budget deficits will have to be dealt with hard (unfortunately that means raising taxes yet again), it doesn't mean the Country comes to a screaming halt like you seem to predict.  And while we are in 2nd Q earnings season things just aren't as horrific as many predicted. Most companies have "prepared" for the decline (by cutting costs and lowering expenses as is normal during recessions) and remain profitable (omg a dirty word for you).  And as time passes so does the recession.  Unemployment will probably continue to rise most likely through early to mid 2010 then start to decline as companies start to expand again.   I doubt the expansion will be robust, but it will still occur.

The thing of interest to me regarding 9/09 is that it is my sister's birthday.  Otherwise stop with the silly "the world is going to end on Sept 09" crap.  I really don't know what your real agenda is when you sit at your keyboard but you really do need to stop skipping taking your medications.

Oh yes it does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a headline for you:

The State Worker: Anger grows over pay, furloughs 


Earnings????  Who cares what was predicted....They SUCKED!!!!!!!!!!!!

And just wait until NEXT WEEK!!!!!

I didn't say the world is going to end on Sept 09.....I said prepare for change by the end of 9.09.......

Trust will see it too.....there is just not enough money to keep the game was all a big ponzi scheme based on borrowing......first we borrowed and played making loads of money for government and we are tapped out......and we can't pay government and bankers any more.....

How hard is it for you to see?????????????????????????????????

For sure, awallejr.  Even if everything did happen on 9/09 or even sometime earlier or in the future, I would still find Alstry annoying.  Its almost like during an earthquake there's some guy shouting "hey, we're having an earthquake!" .   Awesome.  Please get out of my way so I can get to my bomb shelter and load my guns and eat my vienna sausages. 

I don't care if you're right or wrong.  And you're not entertaining or funny.  I'm sorry that so many people waste their time reading your posts. "just like you are right now, right"  Yeah, got me there.

To all fools dissing Alstry, you need to look at the numbers.


Taxes will not be enough to cover the interest. 


Some thing is going to break sooner rather than later.

Next week will be interesting.  I'm in your camp in terms of short-term bearishness, even though my blog last week was very bullish (and very right)

Two conflicting thoughts from today, non performing loans continue to skyrocket at the banks, yet homebuilders are busy and building permits jump.

Don't know what to make of this except that the combination of these two factors is about as logical as the "story" I just heard on CNBC about Goldman buying the Treasury Dept

If you tripled everybody's would still not be enough to cover the deficit!!!!!!!!!!!!


We agree.......

The problems we face are far greater than  what  is  reported on the surface.....

Millions of small businesses and their employees are under incredible stress......... the only question up in the air right now is whether an event  will occur to distract us from this  mess????

I am not a conspiracy theorist, so I do not know.

Even if it distracts us for a short period of time, the problem is still there.

Wondered if you read this


Your'e right about the danger of the debt levels, but I'm not so sure that they are not sustainable at least in the short-term.  As long as there are buyers for T-Bonds, then why would it collapse ?? Auctions have gone well and its not really a Ponzi scheme if everyone knows what they are buying.

Social unrest in the US, maybe,  but I don't think our foriegn friends can afford to cut off the flow of funds and therefore don't see economic disaster on the short term horizon

  I had high hopes for Obama and the new administration, even though I did not vote for him.  What we have gotten is a bunch of rhetoric, promises that were lies and nothing but politics as usual from a party that has been out of power for too long.  I am so sick of hearing from Obama and Nancy Pelosi on a daily basis trying to push their domestic agendas.  BARF!  The country needs jobs.  That should be job one and the only job to be concerned with for now.  Turn the economy around, then pursue health care, etc.  They just don't get it in Washington.  We should kick them all out of office and elect people who don't have a political agenda.  You could probably pick 535 people off the street,  who are unemployed,  with an IQ over 130 and do a better job with no experience.

This article lays it out in plain, uncomplicated English.

You don't need Altrynomics or anything but this article to understand the global economic stalemate that the world is in.

How refreshing!  No threatening !!!!!!!  No Doom and Gloom.  Just frank and logical reasoning and extrapolation of the interesting postion we (and the rest of the world) is in.

I have always thought that with all the deficits that all the powerful countries in the world are running, that at some point there will be a big exchange of cancellations (quasi bankruptcies) to cancel out all this debt that everyone owes everyone else.  It's a joke.  Peter, paying Paul paying Mary paying get the idea.  Eventually the global superpowers are going to have to all get together and start out from square one, with their own currencies, pegged to something that everyone has equal access to.

It's laughable.

Conspiracy, Doom and Gloom, Booga Booga????????????


You guys throw these words around like it's some kind of sickness.....

The problem is so simple yet many of you try to complicate matters with a cliche .

There simply is no money.  The government simply doesn't have money to meet its it must get it form somewhere.....guess where.....and it needs everything you have or else we must restructure radically.

Again not the end of the world, simply a very radical change.

Guys, you don't like alstry style don't read his blogs. The style doesn't discredit the message.

And don't tell me the earnings are good and the housing bottomed. If you first drop 50% and then you are up 2%, does it mean that you are going all the way back , i.e. 100% up, no. It means you might go up another 5%, which still leaves you 45% down, or you might drop even further.

Alstry is right, and so is everyone else who is urging friends and family members to prepare. You don't have to be a psychic to see that the monster avalanche is already rolling down the hill. You just have to open your eyes. 

Things are so bad at this point that anyone who cannot see it coming is in serious denial. Anyone who doesn't prepare deserves whatever happens to them. It does not have to be all doom and gloom IF you prepare.

Saying "prepare" in and of itself is meaningless,  If he is going to blog 5 times a day saying prepare, then blog 5 times a day saying prepare by doing x,y,z.
