No Jobs...No Economy



May 31, 2009 – Comments (10)


You will soon find out that much of our economy over the past 10 years was simply based on people and government spending money they didn't have by borrowing money that didn't exist and now we can't pay back.

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Heavy job losses battered American families again in May, economists said, continuing the carnage that has erased almost all the employment gains over the past decade.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is not very difficult...since borrowing was responsible for more than all of the job growth in the past that consumers are not borrowing all the jobs are gone!!!!!!!!!!

Now we have to deal with a decade of accumulated debt that is suffocating the economy.....prepare for 30-50% unemployment if we continue with the same Zombulator policies.

No President in the United States has ever entered office with such a weak balance sheet with practically no revenues coming into government any more to run the nation.

Thanks Alstry.  That answered my question, the Kondratieff wave being primarily a Debt Cycle Wave.  The Bradley model is an Astrology Model.  It calculates the harmonic vibrations (resonance/dissonance) in the universe.  Hmmmn.  So, do you think the NYSE Specialists are trading off of the Bradley Model to adversely impact markets in order to facilitate their short sales and/or Long Positions, you know, depending on what is most appropriate for the exact moment in time?  Or is that a well kept secret which everyone denies? 

I'm just glad I sold all of my Real Estate in NYC back in 2005, quit my job as a Series 5 SEC Trader with SLK ( we got bought by GS) and moved here to the Adirondacks, you know, to escape the incoming missles from our enraged enemies, who have lost a bundle (and seem always to lose a bundle) in our Stock Markets.  Do you suppose their losses had something to do with that Jet thingy that crashed into the World Trade Center killing my neighbor and his brother (they were running Cantor-Fitzgerald at the time)?  Whaddaya think Alstry?  Did I do the right thing by buying the 100 acre Tree Farm here for cash, or should I have stayed in NYC paying $8,000 a month on absolutely nothing worthwhile? 

I hope you're enjoying this as much as I am.

Actually, Alstry, what is really more fascinating than the actual Bradley Model is the overlay of the money management formula which seeks to employ the optimum return for each moment in time over the course of one complete INVENTORY TURN.  We haven't really seen massive INVENTORY TURN just think you have.  You are right....the best is yet to come.  Wait until you find out how massively rich some people are and how massively poor others will become as a result of this Financial System we have created which seeks to feed this Beast of the Sea (as the Bible writers referred to it).  One question Alstry ....  How did the Bible writers know?  Or, was it the other way around?  I suppose you could reverse engineer the Bible, Egypt and Rome and find the same thing present in those times.  There would be only one difference.  What was scattered between markets back then is now housed all under one roof.  That is progress!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Reverse engineer the bible????  Interesting.

It is clear you get it....but I am not sure 100 acres in the mountains is the solution...but it seems better than the alternative.

Alstry.  It's got a stream which runs down the middle of it, with a Dam and 300 foot Gorge drop that generates electricity.  I have chipped it out and removed 150 18 wheelers full of wood chip, sent to the local wood chip burning Electric Plant.  Paid off the Property on this single transaction and boosted the local economy 3 years ago by 2.5 Million....all told.  There are also 3 separate natural spring sites which produce pristine clean water.   Here's the best part.  There is no Police, only Fire and that is Volunteer and Local which is as cheap as it gets.  The Forest itself holds over 20,000 trees valued at about $500 each when Harvested.

Oh, my neighbor now is the 'recent' Rockefeller.  He owns most of the 6 Million Acre State Park and does a beautiful job maintaining it.  NYS owns a big chunk of it as well as The Nature Conservancy and the Adirondack Park Agency.  It's a jumble of Public/Private Partnership with Rockefeller, Roosevelt, Whitney and Harriman money thrown in for good measure.  These people know business and they don't put up with much.  They are the Bald Eagles of the neighborhood, they only swoop by when there is either a reason to intimidate, to introduce, or make prey.  It is quite remarkable to see.

When I moved to Town (Lake Placid, at the time.  I was signaling 'go for the gold' 4 years ago) I met Mr. Rocky.  He 'found' me.  They do that if they know you.  Our decendents are buried in the same Cemeteries.  Big smile and from his mouth came "So, you're doing the Farmer thing".  I smiled and listened as he told me his story.  I didn't realize until after I chipped out what he meant.  In the USA 'Farmer' means Income/2 X the 1983 Economic Tax Recovery Act Tax Tables instituted by Reagan.  When I saw that (and I wasn't expecting it) I remembered Rocky.  Cool Shoes, I say.  And, I'm retired, and do a little trading through the 'Farm'.

Yes.  You reverse engineer the Bible.  Within the Text is the progression of a people, which incidentally follows the same pattern outlined by Kondratieff ... including their Babylonian Exile ... or Winter.  It is the same story of 'creation' and what drives it. 

There is a Rabbi who has reverse engineered the Torah and found within the count of numbers each representing a letter in the text, coded messages which predict Future Events.  This is where the Bible goes off the tracks and 'explains' the presence of 'God' on earth.  Or, as Christ said "I am the vine, you are the fruit."  It is all perfectly constructed ... it is the face of 'Nature' which is what is 'created', which is also in some minds 'God'. 

The 'vibrational' texture WD Gann explained in each 'personality' of each stock, like snowflakes, is probably the source of what 'God' actually is.  Like a song, vibration, or single thought (as Einstein believed).  In short, there is alot of structure to a thing that is supposedly random. 

The greatest Stock Market Prognosticator I have ever known was my grandmother.  "When the hemlines go up ... WATCH OUT."  She was deadly serious about the whole idea, being as she was herself a 'flapper' in her day.  This is not something Paris Hilton need know about.
