July 01, 2008 – Comments (11) | RELATED TICKERS: SKF , SRS , GLD

It has been about 10 months since I was 99%. FYI - I was Top 300 at one point. I started CAPS in July 07. I will write a year end review this week end.   

The Big Picture had a Great Post here, I am familiar with many of them. I just read Clusterf-ck Nation today, it is definately worth a read (replace - with u).

Your score is great! Now work on your accuracy to get higher in the ranking.

But do we really need more Gloom and Doom?

Great posting. I was just thinking. I know it is dangerous. Bush Sr. S & L fiasco and Clinton let things ride and Bush jr. sub prime slime. Any coralation with who we elect? Here is some more gloom and doom. Soon our media cartel will start pushing the North American Union and the Amero. After that it will be we need to unite the world. This is from a previous post and it is getting closer to be true and not science fiction. From March.

Estements we will be bankrupt by 2057 If you missed our overtime briefing on
Friday, David Walker resigned from his position as U.S. comptroller general.
“As comptroller general of the United States,” says David Walker, the
federal government’s top accountant, “there are real limitations on what I can
do and say in connection with key public policy issues, especially issues that
directly relate to GAO’s client -- the Congress.”
Walker left his government post to lead the newly founded Peter G. Peterson
Foundation. As the head of the Peterson Foundation, Walker will oversee the
billion-dollar endowment of Pete Peterson -- former commerce secretary, the
founder of the Blackstone Group and the Concord Coalition and legendary advocate
for government fiscal responsibility. Chief among Walker’s duties at the
Peterson Foundation will be the funding and advocating of projects that will
enhance public awareness of fiscal imbalance, government deficits and nuclear
proliferation.    Fool on my friend you rock.

Thanks for the replies.

leohaas ,

abitarecatania is a points chaser, but I will cycle thru a falling stock, IF I do NOT have a Top Pitch. If I have the Top Pitch I will let it ride.

abitarePERFECT is about accuracy, but I try not to cycle thru stocks picks.  abitarePERFECT did hit 99 today also, before falling back to 98


That is a good point. The TED series is outstanding and free on the internet to watch.


Good posts I like both website.

FYI- the last time I posted my score I got taken down hard by the market. Like this goat here (Caution: animal violence!):

Thank you. Abitareperfect's portfolio is a US bear market. I use it as a reference if abitarecatania has a spot open.

As the eternal optimist that I am I found a silver lining. Habitat for humanity are snapping up homes because they can now afford them. Putting putting construction workers back to work ( at a 40% pay cut but hey a job is a job and income is income). Yea for the American pull yourself up by the boot straps.
