I Deejstradomis hereby predict that by October 31st of this year, the





will arrive.

Several weeks later during a thunderstorm.

See, I told you that the 





would happen some time this fall.  We've gotten a half inch of rain already and we're forecast to get at least another inch before we're all said and done.

All bow before me and my amazing predictive abilities!!!!!!!!!!!!

What's that you say, that's not what I have been blabbering about for months now.  How dare you question my authority.  I will now hurl personal attacks in the direction of you and your family to change the subject!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As I told you, by 9.09 you would know that MOAP, the mother of all projections would be the mother of all ponzis.  That the economy in America was simply a ponzi scheme of spending money that didn't really exist.

That you would learn the only way to sell cars at any respectable rate was the government to assist many unqualified buyers with the down payment.  Now that we are in September, you will observe sales rate evaporate, despite end of model year incentives just as Alstry predicted.

I forecasted you would know that as this Ponzi scheme is revealed would undertand America is shutting down, and there is nothing we can do about unless we restructure.....

Inspector layoffs may mean near ‘shutdown’ of imports

PUKALANI - Plant quarantine officials said last week that laying off more than half the state's agricultural inspectors would create such a logjam at Hawaii ports that it could cause shortages similar to those seen during shipping strikes.

Carol Okada, manager of the Hawaii Department of Agriculture's Plant Quarantine Branch, said she has not been able to develop a plan for how her department will continue its core functions after it loses 52 employees, 50 of them inspectors, to layoffs planned for November.

She said food shipments to Maui and the other Neighbor Islands, which because of staff shortages would now have to be routed through Honolulu for inspection, would have to sit on the docks until the state's remaining inspectors could look at them, with the risk that some food could spoil in the unchilled containers.

But she said the staffing cuts were so unprecedented that she had no way of predicting how long the delays would be.

"There's such a reliance on imports," she said Thursday. "When this is impacted, it's just like having a dock strike, but in Hawaii. It's a shutdown."

No matter how hard you try, the Zombulator will get way or the other, simply because you were too indifferent to care.

It is not the end of the world, just that we are all broke, and based on the contents of your blog...not very prepared for the change.

You see Deej,

When your government runs up a lot of are legally responsible for that debt as a citizen of the nation.  You are not an attorney so I can't expect you to understand the conept of joint liablility.

But you will feel the effects.... as we are now on the eve of 9.09 you will understand we are on the brink of the biggest depression in history...simply because our economy was one big ponzi scheme.

Then you will could Alstrydomous know...9.09.

But I have to admit, never in my wildest dreams did I think the market could rally like this entering into 9.09 with the facts so obvious.

Ahhh, Alsty, you said that the MOAP stood for the "Mother of all Predictions" and that the "Prediction" that you were making is that something absolutely horrible would happen in September, like a plague of locusts, collapse in the stock market, riots in the streets, war, etc...

You can't cop out and change your forecast, which you must have made five trillion times, after the fact...unless you realize how absurd it was and how sticking with it would destroy your credibility.  In fact, if I recall correctly you said that you'd stop blogging if it didn't come true.


It is still August.....don't you think you are being a premature Alstrybater?

Patience will know it is the Mother of All Projections..

You will learn that the Commercial Real Estate CRASH could bring down thousands of banks...THOUSANDS!!!!

Although the link below contemplats larger syndicated deals, many community banks levered up on local CRE deals as well.

What you will learn in 9.09 will be the only question is the reaction....

Alstry .. I'm confused ... Ok, we all know about the Ponzi MOAP .. but are you still holding to your 'Projection/Prediction' that something big will be revealed during 9.09 .. something we don't already know?

If you think about there really any place to hide anymore?

Commercial Real Estate Crashing

Residential Real Estate Crashing

Autos Crashing...but for a very temporary government bailout

Architecture Crashing

Engineering Crashing

Legal Crashing

Imports Crashing

Exports Crashing

Construction Crashing

Health Care Crashing...especially after Obama can't spend

Technology Crashing

Municipalities Crashing

County Tax Receipts Crashing

State Tax Recepts Crashing

Maybe that helps explain why bankruptcies are increasing parabolically...and we don't count independent contractors and small business people as unemployed?

And all of the above BEFORE 9.09

Jersey...... this point, as you can tell from the Alstrybators...the implications of the current situation has not sunk into the collective conscience yet....

when it does...the reaction could be significant....VERY SIGNIFICANT.

The issue we are contemplating is much more important than health care...and look at the reactions in August. 

How do you think we Americans are going to react after learning that we as a nation are broke?

It is not the end of the world...simply the mother of all ponzis.

It could come from any number of sources such as a bond dislocation......foreigners demanding payment in local currency and not dollars....etc.

But whatever it is, it will simply be a byproduct of the insolvency.

Just to provide a bit of balance.

Alstry views the current crisis as potentially the single biggest issue facing America in its history.

The fact that the population is seemingly so indifferent is absolutely amazing.  You talk the bank owners, business owners or major commercial real estate players and they see the world very differently than what is portrayed in the media.

The average person on the streets can't see or feel it yet....until government has to make a choice between take everything we have and keep on spending or make dramatic changes.....on that day the nation will realize what has happened and the reaction could be severe...

simply judging on the anger being displayed by discussing health care reform.

If you think health care reform is a big issue....imagine the impact of entire nation economy reform?

WRONG.  I will ask, as I have already asked you several times... why are you not bringing your info to the masses?  You're limiting yourself to an audience of about (being generous here) 300 living people.  You'll never accomplish your goals (whatever they are) here, in this very very very very limited sampling of the United States population.

One the eve of 9.09 we are learning America is shutting down. The bankers are killing the economy by cutting off the private economy from credit and the private economy is cutting off government from revenues.

As the bills stack higher and the revenue stream runs slower, all eyes remain on Mayor Dave Bing as he continues to navigate the city of Detroit through a treacherous financial situation.

Bankruptcy has been the key term floating around. Critics say it's the only salvation for the city's crumbled finances, while Bing has maintained that the city of Detroit will not pursue that option unless more drastic changes are put into effect.

The city faces a $300 million deficit, mostly because of a decrease in property and income taxes, plus the cost to run city services and pay city workers.

Last week, the city suffered a blow when Moody's Investor Services dropped Detroit's bond rating to below junk status.

"Because our city faces one of the worst financial, educational and social crises of the past century, the time for pseudo-leadership has passed. Gone must be the days of rhetoric without action, style without substance and promises with no potential. Too many elected officials have drastically failed to do so, and now we are forced to deal with the consequences and clean up the mess.

The above problem is spreading in pandemic fashion across the nation as it hits California, Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, Nevada....Jefferson County Alabama.......

Yet so few seem to care as Benny Bin Laden tells you we are coming out of the recession.

@ Alstry


Yes, everything is crashing...except for one thing.  Tree Lots.  As simply an anecdotal tid bit, I received a letter today from one of my neighbors.  This has never happened in the 7 years I have owned this property.  In order to get my name, he had to go through County Tax Records to find my name and address, which he did.  His request was if I would allow him on the property to chop dead firewood, large bundles of which I have stored at the entrance to the property for just such an occasion.

My answer will be, of course, to have at it, as I have waited for this moment for quite some time, knowing that someone in the neighborhood won't have the money to buy Oil this I prepared, for someone else's needs.  It is a fascinating 'idea' that I employ, this thinking of the needs of others, and not solely about myself.  But, it does seem to work.

I call it The Mother Of All Prosperity.
