Seriously...Are Fools Still Watching The Ticker?



May 09, 2010 – Comments (6)

...the former Fast Money lead man is actually pretty spot on. And for all you retail investors who think this market is anything but a two-tiered playground built now exclusively for Wall Street to fleece you every single day, our advice is to get the hell out. Everyone else already is... Except of course for the banks and the various 3-3,000 man quant operations, which are the only market participants left. We hope they cannibalize whatever is left of each other and blow themselves all up in the process. Whatever is left will have infinitely more credibility than the busted mockery of capital markets we have now.

Welcome to the Digital Age.....where the sheep are finally waking up.

Many will wonder why do they work for money when Wall Street executives, Bankers, and Politiciians get to borrow as much as they want for free......even more will realize that their current jobs are no longer necessary or needed in the Digital Age.

We are entereing a new era my friends.......

It will be exciting......and a big part of the excitmennt is few really know how things will play out when a world as we know it simply evaporates. 

It is the natural consequence when a nation and world built on the law of money simply abandons enforcement of the law for a select few.......and then fleeces the sheep like they are Fools.

The Greeks get it.....but they eat sheep, they are not sheep.

We are not sheep, and we are not burying our heads in the sand. We do what we can to enhance our lives and ultimately our world. The headlines you post here, do not take any of us by surprise--we are well read and well aware. But we have the courage and dignity to do what WE can to move forward, doing our part to provide for ourselves, family and communities. We aren't enchanted by some founding myth or irrational governmental policies--we have pride and the good we do--no matter how big or small-- provides us with happiness. And with all of this media coverage around the globe, I am amazed of how little "bad" there actually is. With over 6 billion people occupying this tiny planet, I can count on one hand (virtually) the number of negative headlines you have listed here today. You consider it devastating, while I say it is remarkable. It is a testament to how much good is still out there, which is perpetually overshadowed by the negativity and drama attention-getters and fear mongers disseminate in an attempt to satisfy their insatiable needs for attention in order to further their underlying ulterior motives. When you see adversity, you shutter in fear. When we see adversity, we see surmountable challenges and opportunities. We are Americans.

You have seen farther down the road than most would care to. Robert Prechter presages some of the financial impacts and even some of the coming issues with his Socionomic theory. But none have gone to the depths of what it could mean at the "bottom". Now that the onset of the next phase of the Greatest Depression appears to be nigh, I am pondering the potential effects more deeply and on a personal level. The impact of the deflation at hand will be stunning and shocking for most. I have long considered the general implications, yet reserved my deepest meditations for the current time.

The title of this note from you strikes a new chord. If it all goes down this way, as it were, we will be talking about personal survival, not abstractions of the markets, prices, paper, money, housing, employment, blah, blah. Survival pure and simple. A return to first principles of shelter, food, and safety away from the masses. But no man is an island either. Tribal/communal living? Farmland? Off-the-grid/solar/wind power? I'm not a gun guy but...

Naturally, and according to social mood theory, most people are still relatively optimistic and will find these thoughts disturbed or crazy. But if anyone considers a Great Depression overlaid on the type of society we have today, it won't take a leap to figure the kind of social unrest and bare knuckle living that desperate people will resort to in order to live. And then, wars are spawned in a depression so we have to also consider what comes then.

The going will get tough out there, better get going people.
