IF REALITY DISTURBS YOU.....go make pancakes on an eclectic griddle or play with your plasmas.

As the Zombulator sweeps across America cutting off credit to the nation, shutting down factoriers, kicking families out of their homes, dumping the disabled from jobs, and forcing millions on the streets or in tents.....expect massive amounts of layoffs in the next few months as we come closer to Zombulation Nation.

On October 23, International Paper announced the closure of three plants, resulting in the loss of 1,600 jobs. By mid-December, the closures will leave 270 workers in Albany, Oregon, and 230 workers in Pineville, Louisiana, without jobs. Most devastating is the spring 2010 closure of an enormous mill in Franklin, Virginia, which will result in 1,100 job cuts.

Once enough people are not few will that government will collapse under its own weight and rising that point, we become Zombulation Nation where everyone will need to be taxed 100% of assets simply to maintain the soverignty of America.

How could Alstry know this was coming?  How could Motely Fool not warn you??????????

Amazing how the people have become sheeple simply thinking if they had enough flat screens, the future would be just like the past.....

Welcome to the Alstrynomic is not the end of the world nor is it doom and gloom.....simply the end of the world as you know it and a portal into a brand new system.

The question now is what vehicle will drive us into the new world....war or economic collapse......right now the odds are about 50/50 and could even include both.

FHA broke.....FDIC broke....Fannie Mae broke......Pension Gurananty broke.....Social Security Cash Flow negative.....Dubai broke....Iceland broke.....Ireland broke.....California  broke......New York broke......anyone see a pattern developing into 1.01.10????????????????????????????????

Now what is a good way to score points in this environment????  Has anyone noticed how low most of the points are of the most vocal alstrybaters????

He's a nut.  Here's one from his other blog:

"What was unbelievable was how the citizens permitted government to bail out the banks and let the rest of the economy fail.....never would I have dreamed our nation would permit such nonsense without massive rioting."

So apparently he's a proponent of armed insurrection, destruction of public property and in all probability injurying hundreds if not thousands of innocent people.

I just wish he would find another forum to go sell crazy to.

Two playerw whose collective points is less than 50 and criticizing my investing and blog????

Certainly a sign of the times.......when Alstrynomics is focused on scoring points.

My suggestion is you find another clearly you are not in Alstry's league when it comes to playing caps.

Another genius who scored a ton of points by starting over in March.  Congrats.  Too bad your picks since then have to put it politely stunk up the joint.  Go push your rebellioin and sky is falling rhetoric somewhere crackpot.

Since March Alstry has lost 5000 points........and still kicking your backside.

I think it may be time to turn this ship around.

You Fool, it is not doom and gloom or the end of the world......simply the end of a world as you know it.

But stick around.......and you are always welcome.

Why would you want an ignore function.

Seems short-sighted to me to not listen to a viewpoint that may differ from yours.

If you don't like alstrys blogs don't click

If he's taking up a couple of slots on the blogs post hit more.

Personaly, I like to think of Alstrys posts as pure sarcasm about the state we now find ourselves in. Sometimes I click sometimes I don't.

Almost as ludicrous as continually posting dates that the end of the world as we know it will occur ... and to prepare.

I read Alstry's posts for the shear fact that he does post a different point of view.  I heckle Alstry because his claims about a great many things go against his claim that he is all about being right/correct.

Heaven help us if his predictions come to fruition; but like msftgev stated, it is a bit short-sighted to not at least entertain a point of view that differs from your own. So, while I do not agree with Alstry and get as annoyed as many with his repetitive postings about the end of the world as we know it, I do appreciate that I live in a country that allows so many points of view and gives everyone the freedom to post about them.

Fool on...

Disclaimer: Motley Fool score comparisons are a bit skewed and in my opinion are no real way to determine whether or not the person writing a BLOG is smarter than the next because they have a higher score than the next.  Like much in the investing world, the only real way to know if someone is smarter than the next is to research them and take some time to do your equivalent of due diligence.  Alstry may be smarter than the rest of us, or he may be a crackpot...only time and research can actually prove that out.

I would put my chip on crackpot.

If you want to look at the accuracy of my suggestion is read  what I was blogging about a year and a half ago and where we are today.

We are about to see millions of people get let go and huge numbers of businesses shut down........the fallout will be a mess......but a war or other event will be my  guess so our bankers won't have to confess.

From the NYTimes....and it is only the beginning:

With food stamp use at record highs and climbing every month, a program once scorned as a failed welfare scheme now helps feed one in eight Americans and one in four children.

We are so lucky to have the opportunity to invest at this moment in history.  Many fortunes will come out of this period; I hope my friends, family and those that trust me to invest money on their behalf will be able to achieve compelling returns.  It’s easy to spread doom and gloom, but if you read the history of the Great Depression and other deep recessions, one will note that the American economy has always come back.  To bet against the American economy is a foolish bet.  Invest in America.  I am.


One can read and listen to the words of the world’s greatest investor, Warren Buffett, or read and listen to some person with a mental disorder who blogs incessantly on a website.  Freedom of speech is a terrific blessing.  We are also afforded the option to not read the words of a person with a mental disease.  My concern is for those that are naïve or new investors.  Please be open to other ideas, opinions and viewpoints.  However, I also urge caution regarding the source of your information.  Anyone who staunchly holds to one view, refers to themself in the third person, incessantly creates “meaningful” dates and then changes them, etc. is not someone from which you should seriously take investment or economic pearls of wisdom.  This person needs counseling.


There are a plentitude of investment opportunities, use the Fool and the many terrific members as a guide on your way to financial freedom. Report this comment

This is not about doom and gloom and this is nothing like The Great Depression.  That was an illiquidity crisis, this is an insolvency crisis.

Who is betting against the American economy....

Anybody who thinks this is a cyclical recession is truly a Fool.

This is the beginning of a brand new economy where much of what is of value today will have no value is the beginning of a new world as you will know it.

danteps (

Just so you understand my posting on this blog is due to boredom and sarcasm. Never posted on an alstry board before and probably never will again.

Can't believe no one is at least entertaining the Idea that Alsrys act may be due to sarcasm also.

I guess I should be pissed since he knocked off my last blog about actual investing, but after all we are playing a game.

I hear you msftgev. 

I only respond out of concern for folks and perhaps some of the ennui on a chilly day to which you referred.  I suppose there is a place for sarcasm, although, to be honest, I struggle with it's place here.  The preservation and accumulation of wealth should be taken very seriously if one wants to be successful.

The internet can be a great forum, but folks like Alstry are certainly a concern.  Alstry, please get some counseling or find a meaningful hobby / activity.  What you are doing is a desperate cry for attention and disturbing.  At the very worst someone may lose money because of you.

wow he's referenced points and Caps score quite a few times since I wrote this.

To be fair, I read the links because they are never unfactual.

I just think the rest is all an act.
