Welcome to the Depression Compression!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



May 07, 2009 – Comments (13)

As I told you last around 8300....we were at a top.

Tomorrow...we will likely learn that OVER 17% of the American labor force is unemployed or underemployed.....

A number we have not seen since the Great Depression.

The irony is this time around we reached the number at a much quicker pace than we did in the Thirties.  MUCH QUICKER......I wish it wasn't so....but the facts are the facts......and this time around we can't export to grow our way out of it.

After listening to Bernanke....we won't be able to borrow our way out either.

Today....another 600K Americans lost their jobs and filed for Unemployment Benefits for the first time in JUST ONE WEEK!!!!!!  This has been happening week after week after week......

Millions of American children are on the verge of starvation....expect this number to rise dramatically as the Summer progresses....

WASHINGTON – An estimated 3.5 million children under the age of 5 are at risk of hunger in the United States, according to a look at government numbers by an anti-hunger group.

That's more than 17 percent of children who could suffer cognitive and developmental damage if they are not properly fed.


According to the Agriculture Department, 11 percent of households lacked enough food for an active, healthy life, before the economy worsened late last year.

Please pay special attention to the last sentence......based on my research...this number is much higher right now and likely to get much worse as the summer progresses.

PREPARE.....DON'T FEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It distresses me to say that the US is on the verge of becoming the most powerful third world country in existence. When summer comes and kids are out of school, many of the recentley unemployed parents that are home will have their patients pushed to the limits. This can cause social unrest that has not been seen in many decades.

Prepare when little Suzie or Johnney continues to cry about not being able to go to summer camp.

Prepare when it is time to buy new school clothes and Mom has to go to Walmart and not Bergdorfs.

Prepare when Johnney has to hand down his shoes to Tommy because new ones can't be afforded.

Prepare for a summer filled with disappointments from the newley developing facist government and reality of possible civil unrest brought about by mounting frustrations of a society of people that are tired of being lied to.

God I am glad I don't have kids right now... The stress on parents must be enormous, even if they have a job right now.

More negativism!

You talk about starvation like it was a bad thing.

Starvation will toughen up our young people, so when they are assigned to work camps or conscripted into the military, you can be sure they won't be complaining about the food in the Chow Hall.

Your an idiot.  All your points are from ultrashorts which is gambling.  If you called this top then how come all your red thumbs were most recently in March and April?  Because you didn't see this bull run coming.

At the end of the day you made a couple lucky timing guesses on your ultrashorts and now all of a sudden other fools dumber than you think your God.  Maybe if they analyzed how bad your closed picks were and it was pure luck they would realize you just reprint articles on the internet and probably work at Kmart.

drgroup -

Quite the bold statement on parenting.  Do you actually have the types of kids that you're referring to here?  Sounds like you're singleing out the haves from the have nots.

Prepare?!?!?  How?  Take parenting classes?

 Buy FAZ?

Pay down debt and accumulate cash?

 I hear way too much everyday about how bad things will get.  It's getting sooooo old.   Things are already bad.  Normal kids won't behave the way you may think.

Quite the bold statement on parentingIt may be bold, but it was used to invoke a wide variety of thought. Kinda like looking at a Salvadore Doli.

I fail to see how my statement singles out anyone. If the shoe fits, wear it.

Since Alstrynomics is all about being right all of the time could you please comment on the unemployment numbers released today as related to this blog. 

And could you please explain how your blog titled "Alstry Calling the TOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" where it contains the comment "Right Here Right Now.......DOW about 8300" also relates to Alstrynomics and being right all of the time?
