Houston...Is there a Problem???????

Wake up America.

And in the meantime (and as a hedge if the government tries to be even more stupid) go buy a gun and some ammo.  When the "entitlement" checks stop going to those who think they have a right to pop out eight kids and bill the state for the medical, I'll make book on riots and other forms of general civil nastiness.

Fellow CAPS players....where is this all going??????????????????

Millions of Americans are losing their jobs.  Tens of millions are watching their wages evaporate as the cost of living explodes.  Gas prices are beginning to rise again which will lead to higher transporation costs and higher food costs in the very near future.

You can see the stress rising everywhere.

Our government leaders are acting shocked and are just beginning to inform you about the magnitude of the problem whether it be the Governator, Mayor of LA, Mayor of Las Vegas, Mayor of Cleveland, and many others....while Alstry and others have been warning you for over a year.

Is Alstry angry....he is angry as hell!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are watching our nation systematically shut down and few seem to have any solutions or even proposing solutions.  The current ostrich policy of sticking our collective heads in the sand is not working.

To make matters worse, our government pursuing a Zombie Bank policy is transferring our nation's wealth from its citizens to relatively few banks.  Soon every city in America will be filled with broke constituents.....just like the hundreds of depressed towns littered across the Rust Belt with their vibrant history only a memory as their industries shut down and jobs shipped overseas.

This go around...the entire nation is becoming the Rust Belt affecting once immune industries like Finance, Real Estate, Technology, Health Care and Government.

As we proceed into Summer, the downward spiral will grow causing distress to millions more Americans....many of whom are still unaware of the currennt conditions nor prepared for what they face.

You may hate Alstry...but at least he has prepared you for what is coming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

With each passing day, Alstry and others continually provide hard hitting facts documenting the  effects of Zombification of our American economy with such clarity and perspective that few media outlets can compare to the brilliance of CAPs.  Some CAPs players average picks are out performing the market by over 10% for the past year putting them in the elite of elite of all professional money managers in America.  Those that are short are outperforming by 50%.

So here we are this Memorial Day weekend honoring our dead and Summer is just around the corner...in the mean time our cities are going broke, our counties are going broke, our states are going broke, our corporations are going broke, and our citizens are going broke....

and the collective conscious of America seems to place little emphasis on the severity of the problem.  Evidencing this is a few arrogant CAPS players who postulate technology will change things.....in the mean time, failing to address that fact that millions will starve before we even initiate the contemplated changes.

To me such a perspective is like telling the victims of Katrina how much better things will be while failing to address the then existing human crisis.  Do you think those starving in New Orleans gave a damn how great the future might be....they needed food and water then or there wouldn't be a future for those affected.

Shouldn't we have been better prepared to address the crisis in New Orleans.....shouldn't we be preparing more for the current crisis??????

How bad will things have to get before we realize the severity of the problem.....it is a very interesting social experiment indeed....in real time and open for all to see.  We have many perspectives on CAPs...The Deej, The Donner, The Alstry, The JGus, The Abitare, The dwot and many many others.

Yes this is an investing site....but the general economy is the fabric from which we weave our investments.

What exactly is the answer, Alstry is not fully certain...but he is sure if we continue the policy of taking ALL of our nations wealth and giving it to a few bankers....The Zombulator will drain funds and there will be very little money left for our citizens.......and if there is very little money in the consumer's hands....our leveraged consumer dependant economy will fail and many will starve to death.........and as that process progresses.....if you don't think social unrest is the byproduct.....you are not thinking about the problem.

Don't you think its time to PREPARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alstry,

Can you imagine what California will be like if this comes to pass? 

Los Angeles Times: Schwarzenegger Proposes Ending Welfare in California

Governor Schwarzenegger is proposing to completely eliminate the state’s welfare program for families, medical insurance for low-income children and Cal Grants cash assistance to college and university students. The proposals would completely reshape the state’s social services network transforming it from one of the most generous states to one of the most tightfisted. The proposals are intended to help close a budget deficit . . . 

I have heard estimates that this would affect over 2 MILLION people including 1.5 MILLION children. Can you imagine what the parents of those children will be willing to do when their kids begin starving to death?!?! I'd be willing to do just about anything to save the lives of my children. I'm sure you (and most others)  would do the same

JGus,

CA is only the beginning.  Soon we will all be living in the Rust Belt as industries and municipalities go broke.

Through its Zombie Bank Policy, our government is knowingly impoverishing millions of Americans...GM bondholders, Chrysler Dealers, welfare recipients, etc.....the question is what preparations are being made for the social consequences??????

During The Great Derpression in America, in present day China and India.....the societies were socially prepared for a slow down and adjustments were relatively easy as few services were offered to the citizens.  The adjustment for America and its citizens is going to be much broader, unforeseen, and convulsive.

It is amazing how so many can't foresee what is so obvious....

The Zombification of the American economy is going to lead to tens of millions zombified citizens....welcome to Night of the Living Dead to practically every city in America.

Here's another headline for you:

Washington Post: Areas Hit Hardest by Economic Collapse in Need of Food

Ed Montgomery is so new to his job that the only things on the wall of his sparse office at the Department of Labor are a couple of unemployment charts and a pair of color-coded maps highlighting the communities hardest hit by the collapse of the American auto industry. The Midwest is a blotch of dark purple. A month into the job . . . Montgomery said a plea in Warren, Mich., reminded him of how serious the crisis is for some cities. A United Way director told Montgomery the No. 1 request on a help line is food. Report this comment

I guess I tend to be a realist in this situation even though I'm an optimist by nature. Unfortunately, when I look at the state of our nation - economically, politically, socially, etc. - I find very little to be optimistic about. All I see is an Everest-sized mountain of evidence (versus the fairy-tale, green shoots B.S.) that things are going to get much, much worse. I don't think that the world will come to an end, but the 'good old days' will likely never return for the US. As a nation, we lived LARGE for the last 20 years and the bill for that lifestyle has now come due. Catastrophically, there isn't enough money in the world (as you have mentioned numerous times) to cover that bill.

I am doing my best to prepare my family (and anyone else who will listen) for the tough road that lies ahead. I am pleased to say that I have converted a few. Most, however, are content to just live their lives the best they can and hope that things will turn around sooner or later.

(MarketWatch) -- Champion Industries Inc. said that its unit that publishes the Huntington, W.Va., Herald-Dispatch daily newspaper had cut... 15% of its staffers.

How can company after company in industry after industry layoff 10-20% of their workforce yet our government is only forecasting single digit unemployment rates????  Now many of the above are on the second and third round of double digit layoffs.

Now states are contemplating firing hundreds of thousands and taking millions off of welfare....imagine the social and economic impact on those families and businesses they patronize????

At this point, it is not a question of whether we are about to go into The Greatest Depression in history....the issue is how bad will this downturn reach????

Depressions are not necessarily a bad thing.....they serve to bring balance back into the economy.......especially if you are prepared...

You can listen to the Kool Aid servers or you can Prepare.....Alstyrnomics is all about being right and preparation is the mother of forming the fundemental foundation.

Remember...asl yourself who helped those at Jonetown more....those that served the Kool Aid or refused to stand up and say anything....or those that warned the people of the tainted Kool Aid?

Prepare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well some of the people at Jonestown did make an effort, but either way they were pretty much screwed. If they protested or kicked up a fuss, they were directed to drink the Flavor-Aid at gunpoint (and yes, it was Flavor-Aid, not Kool-Aid, which makes the whole 'drinking the Kool-Aid' phrase highly innaccurate). And if they tried to run, they were shot.

SHOULD HALF OF US BE EXTERMINATED AND THE REST BECOME AETHIESTS??????

SOME of America’s leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population and speed up improvements in health and education.

The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.

Described as the Good Club by one insider it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America’s wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey.

....

“This is something so nightmarish that everyone in this group agreed it needs big-brain answers,” said the guest. “They need to be independent of government agencies, which are unable to head off the disaster we all see looming.”

Why all the secrecy? “They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government,” he said.

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article6350303.ece

It is clear that the world elite view overpopulation as the single biggest threat facing mankind.  Sorta scary when you think America is less than 10% of the world population and we consume about 1/3 of the worlds natural resources.

What would it take to bring this number into balance????

Maybe Alstry should contemplate a new role on CAPs as his old role will be old news soon.....could a Depression be the answer to a lot of problems??????????????????????

Sunday, May 24, 2009 North Korea Conducts Nuclear Test Posted by Tyler Durden at 10:45 PM Update 2: Korean won, stocks tumble - Bloomberg

Update: North Korea confirms it has conducted a nuclear test. "We have successfully conducted another nuclear test as part of the republic's measures to strengthen its nuclear deterrent."

Developing story. The South Korean weather agency detected a tremor test at 00:54 GMT which Yonhap has subsequently determined has been a nuclear test. BNO reports:
Unusual earthquake activity was reported in North Korea's nuclear test area on Monday morning, the United States Geological Survey reported. The agency said the earthquake, which happened at 9.55 a.m. local time, had a preliminary magnitude of 4.7.

It struck about 45 miles from the town of Kimchaek, which is located in northern North Korea. A spokeswoman for the United States Geological Survey told BNO News that the epicenter of the earthquake was located about 5 miles west from the location of a controversial nuclear test on October 9, 2006, but the exact location was still subject to change. It struck about 6.2 miles deep, showing additional similarities to the detonation of the nuclear device in 2006...

Sudden Arrival??????  Obviously not students of Alstrynomics;)

It is still amazing they are STILL calling this a recession.....how long do you think it will be before a DEPRESSION will be the common term used.....

Alstry forecasts by 9.09......YOU too will know it's a DEPRESSION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You have been warned....but if the choice of the elite is to use enriched uranium to cull the excess population....Alstry has no idea how to prepare nor is he sure he would want to survive the aftermath.......

Sorta like the rich going on a hunt saying killing the animals is good for the herd......now the only question is who lives and who dies???????????????????????

You're all missing the big picture. This is a ploy to destroy America's soverienty. While all you rich people are worrying about how to protect your money, you're giving all your rights away.

Welcome to the Socialist Republic of America, Comrade. I hope you all preserve your wealth because the Government will be taking it all from you soon anyway. Will YOU spend your wealth financing those of us who will be willing to die for the same rights our ancestors already won for us?

Socialism is NOT the answer.....
