Those of us who believe people need to take responsibility for their own spending behavior, and who know that markets can't be fixed by brainless, bleeding-heart legislators -- we're going to need to keep our eyes peeled.
First off, I enjoy your posts and pitches.
That aside and in the spirit of sportsmanship I want let you know that your days in the top 3 won't last out the month. I appreciate you holding my space for me.
Have a good weekend.
It's a Commodities Boom man! Don't you get it by now? Geez!
And thankfully, there is at least one Commodity in particular whose supply is highly elastic as opposed to the nature of most. A highly-demanded raw material that can be created from a renewable resource as well: Paper.
It was paper-mills working overtime at the behest of Investment Bankers that caused this particular version of the Big Mess and now the "Leaders," who actually only follow, will place their orders at the mill to keep the presses churning-out more paper debt instruments. Hell, if the mills run-out of trees, they can buy raw stock from the Chinese who are making millions--billions actually (but that stuff is pretty easy to print as well)--buying our paper trash on the West Coast and loading it onto empty container ships heading back home to be pulped and processed into packaging for our mass consumption goods. And since fewer "homeowners" will be able to shop for packaging-intensive crap @ Wal Mart, the Chinese paper mills will need a new customer. Viola!
You know, GSE's doing the "homeowners" (that's my favourite punchline of the year) a "favour" and rolling-their loan over into a fixed rate 40 year term?
The Great American Solution: Fire-up the presses and send everyone shopping!
You only needed to watch one minute of "mainstream news" in 2001 to know the whole game: Our President standing in the Rose Garden just days after the largest Terrorist Attack in our history and telling us to, 'get on with our lives; Take your family out to dinner; Out to the mall and go shopping'.
The jig is up gang...
The Republicans spent the last 6 years printing; The Dem's need to catch-up now. Buy Timber Companies, paper processors, more precious metals and then...
Vote for third-party candidates across the board one-and-all the next time and send these corrupt sell-outs a message! If you care about the future of your Nation, you'll toss all these bums out.
Ahh, nevermind. Forget I said anything...
Actually, today they aren't really printing the money anymore. They just need to type a number into a computer and the new money has been created. They pass this to some financial institution, which, thanks to this deposit, can lend several times this money to somebody else.
Yeah, I had that in mind but I knew I was already tossing too much into this stew so I left it to the sous chef. Thanks comrade!
