A second state has now SUSPENDED tax refunds!!!!!

From CalculatedRisk:

Kansas has suspended income tax refunds and may not be able to pay employees on time, the state's budget director said Monday.

The state doesn't have enough money in its main bank account to pay its bills, prompting Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to suggest transferring $225 million from other accounts throughout state government. But the move required approval from legislative leaders, and the GOP refused Monday.

Alstry warned you states would go broke.

Just 48 more to go......

PREPARE....don't Fear.......there are many out there that are going to try to scare you....DON"T let them...

As long as you are prepared with sufficient will have done what you can do.......

Reduce debt and dependance on banks.....

Strengthen your relationships with family and friends.....

Don't buy what you don't need......

If you must smoke.....avoid the weed.

Only associate with those sincere......

Bernie Madoff should be dressed in striped wear.......

You think these times are one big joke?????

Soon you shall see many are broke.....

I am here to make sure it ain't you

Just telling you the facts and what is true

You feel you don't like the data as presented

Read other blogs so you won't feel resented

All I can promise is to do my best

Let the chips fall until the rest

Hopefully many will be on your side of the table

No brand names on this blog....just the Alstry label

Get ready for the headlines as the media starts to blare

But those that have followed Alstrynomics will have little fear

On defaults, bankruptcies, and other distress

Alstrynomics will be there to rise from the mess

Opportunities for those ready and willing

Just not right now as the rest are shilling

Soon we will getting ready to party and play

In the mean time be cognizent of those not receiving pay

Life can reward those who stick there neck out

Little is given to those that only whine and pout

CAPs has provided an open forum to learn

Now go out there and drop your stake and get ready to earn

There are many ideas but few worth distilling

Alstrynomics is one that stands there chilling

Good luck to all as the game CAPs will proceed

Teaching others how to score points is helping those in need

We all come in different shapes and sizes

But in the end it is about understanding and compromises

You don't need to like Alstry or listen to his ideas

But learn as much as you can and soon you will hear the cheers

This poem has ended as we start a new week

The horses are nearing the starting gate as its points we seek

 Weed is healthier than tobacco. Did you know that nicotine is the main ingredient in rat poison? If you must smoke, let it be the weed. Word.

USA!!!!  USA!!!!   USA!!!!!   USA!!!!  The dollar all the way.......

Feb. 17 (Bloomberg) -- The euro fell for a second day against the dollar and the yen on speculation financial turmoil in Europe will worsen and after its recent losses triggered automatic orders to sell the currency.

The pound declined versus the yen on concern a U.K. report today will show inflation slowed due to the economic slump, giving the Bank of England more room to cut interest rates. The dollar may weaken for a second day against the yen before U.S. housing and manufacturing reports that economists say will show the recession is deepening.

“The financial turbulence in central and Eastern Europe is likely to persist,” said Masafumi Yamamoto, head of foreign- exchange strategy for Japan at Royal Bank of Scotland in Tokyo and a former Bank of Japan currency trader. “The markets may perceive this as a factor to sell the euro.”

The euro declined $1.2685 as of 10:35 a.m. in Tokyo, from $1.2801 late yesterday in New York. The European currency dropped to 116.57 yen from 117.46 yesterday. The dollar was at 91.91 yen from 91.73 yen.

The euro fell amid growing concern that Ireland will default on its national debt. Credit-default swaps on the nation’s five- year sovereign debt reached a record high of 378.4 today, according to CMA Datavision.

If all your advice is this bad, Alstywhatsis is headed for the dustbin of history.

For those of you that want to know why Alstry picks on FB.....because from Alstry's perspective, FB picks on those in a weaker or disadvantaged position and few on CAPs have the cahones to stand up to him......Alstryonomics doesn't tolerate injustice against the weak....plain and simple.....

here are a few quotes from FB in a recent blog this Fall:

#5 there are too many fat people in our society.....

The only other idiotic CAPs player to make a blog parodying "fat" people is Dare.....ironicly the CAPs player I accused of being FB.....coincidence???

Do these pricks really think people choose to be "fat" in many cases????  If my son or daughter made fun of a child in their class because of their weight......they would learn real fast NEVER to do it again.

ANYONE weaker than you is generally someone to be protected...not ridiculed or run over.

Here is another from the same blog and a common theme of his.....

Anyways, I just wanted to point out all the benefits of a great depression.....because the more distress the more money I make and the more job security I have no matter how low things get.... 

My friends...there is little good about a great depression.  Many people's lives get turned upside down, go hungry, and negative societal economic distress explodes.  I can only help to mitigate your distress and maybe help a few people along the way.  The best way Alstry can help is teach others how to accumulate points on their own as this is an investing blog.

Cash=Points when everything around you is crashing.

In the same blog....FBs solution to The Great Depression is stay employed????  Do you really think, for the most part, people choose to be unemployed???

I find it quite hypocritical that people admonish Alstry for pointing out that the company FloridaB ARROGANTLY bragged about was going to make him and his partners rich(at the expense of those that went thru hardship) by buying distressed property..... went out of business because IT was too leveraged into distressed property.  Sometimes reality is the best justice.....I have been there my friends....and if I can help you avoid some of the mistakes......that is my theme and my purpose......

As I have stated before....the heritic fear mongers will be coming out of the woodwork.....PREPARE!!!!!!

Here is FB's solution......

Alstry's is just the opposite....
