Who is Alstrydomous???



October 25, 2009 – Comments (27)

The person who called the housing collapse....and is still warning that we are not even halfway there yet....and the only reason public homebuilders are still not bankrupt is because most are improperly siphoning funds borrowing from America's pension plans to keep operating at a LOSS.

The person who called the banking collapse...FDIC now broke.

The person who called the pension collapse....pension guaranty now broke.

The person who called unprecedented Fraud in our financial system.  Just wait....Galleon and CalPers are just the beginning.

The person who forecasted that cities, counties and states will be forced to slash millions of workers due to tax receipts evaporating....we are now seeing RECORD declines in tax receipts.

The person who forecasted that America would be put into a state of emergency from a pandemic.

The person who forecasted health care would be a BIG SHOE to we are seeing revenues to hospitals shrink and massive job and wage cuts across the country.

And now what is next....

Just ain't FELT nothing yet as we approach 11.10.9......but this may make you feel a bit better in the mean time:

Big gain in GDP would show end of deep recession

If you were counterfeiting $2 Trillion dollars per hard would it be for you to spend a little bit more??????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Until you were cut off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!........then what????????

Alstrydomous, the person who predicted Dow 5000 before the end of the summer. How did that work out ?

The person who predicted 9.09. And when the market went up, he then predicted 10.09.

Then when the market went up again, he then predicted 11.09.

Who is Alstrydomous? He is a shameless fear monger and a terrible investor. He is someone who missed the 50% stock rally since March, the biggest rally in decades.

I wouldn't call him a terrible investor, just a guy who wants to see it all go down.

Can't say I blame him.... or her.

I would love to see it tank, especially HSBC. If those dogs eat it, I lose my gigantic mortgage!

Yes, it is worth a worldwide economic calamity for me to not have to pay my mortgage.......selfish prick! - sound familiar?


Nothing is going to happen. It is a crappy world in a lot of ways, we just have to deal with that.


BTW- Don't buy gold, rhodium is a better play.


Good Luck, and May Your Dow Never Jones!

Alstrydomous = balderdash. 

Someone who blogs incessantly, gives himself one recommendation and then comments incessantly on his own blogs.


Someone diagnosed with Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

 The master of schadenfreude. 

Someone who possesses the prescient powers of a coin flip.  9/09 came and went.  MOAP – I don’t think so.  Long investors simply made more money.   


A writer who uses a plentitude of exclamation points and all caps.  These do not make arguments or conjectures better.


If you listen to Alstrydomous  . . . PEREPARE TO LOSE MONEY!!!!!!


An annoying blogger.  Blogging more also doesn’t make something true.  Neither does commenting on your own blog.  The internet is a beautiful concept, but we must also accept the downside of those that cling to a view for validation of their egos and desire for attention.


Someone whose investment research consists of typing “job loss” in Google and then provides 50 links in a blog. 


A person who promised to stop blogging, but sadly could not keep his word.

So why do people keep "recing" and commenting?

In my early days in "chat groups", I learned the best way (maybe even the only way) to get rid of trolls was to ignore them.

This is the last time I will comment on one of his blogs.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

We have not hit 9.09.

I have pretty much said my peace.

We have about 50 days left.

Going forward I will substantially reduce my blogging as this post pretty much sums things up.

If by the end of September, MOAP never matierializes, Alstry will dematerialize into cyber ether.

My little whining welfare loving think the world is going to let America run a $2 Trillion dollar deficit indefinitely while they and their citizens are forced to live within budget???? 

Let me repeat that number one more time...$2 Trillion dollars!!!  PER YEAR AND GROWING WHILE OUR ECONOMY IS STILL SHRINKING. 

We are bascially stealing from the world just so some of the whining welfare Fools don't have to face reality.  You think the world's bankers are going to let America thumb its nose to the laws of money???

Nooooooooo  WAY!!!!!!

Pretty soon Obama will be forced to make the BIG decision...THE PRIMARY DEALERS WILL CUT US OFF FROM BORROWING.....and he will have tell the citizens we are broke....really know, no mo money broke.....or go to war to take other's assets we need to succeed?

Trust me, if you thought my accuracy of my previous prognostications were simply ain't seen nothing yet!!!!!

Are you ready for Marshall Law???

Are you ready for 50% unemployment?

We are already there with adults 18-24....we are already there with architects.....we are already there with mortgage brokers....we are already there with contruction workers....soon to be there with health care workers....government workers.......and much much more!!!!!


Are you ready for change...change like we have never seen before???  Postive Change....but a very convulsive process to get there...hang on because Alstrydomous will help you navigate what will be some very rough waters together.

In Alstry's new world...traditional real estate will have very little value...same with shopping centers, office buildings and many of the items we value today....but we cannot get to the promised land until we cross the desert....

Think of yourself as a patient on life support who is really dead...the EKG...or ticker in this case makes it look like you are alive...but in reality, as soon as the plug is pulled...YOU ARE DEAD.

If you didn't know you were economically dead in will feel it by is just a question of that if has been resolved.

In the Alstrydomous Age...that which you value today will have very little value tommorrow...I am not ready to elaborate as you are not prepared to are still weak and naive and under the spell of the zombulator......

No, man.

I am not from Australia.

Thurgood Marshall, yes, the NAACP judge. I get it, but fail to make the connection to any specific law, certainly not one so encompassing as to be refered to as the "Marshall Law."


Sorry, maybe I am just an idiot....but I don't think so.


Check out Mish's perspective on things, which I shamelessly ripped and put on my board:

 Mish rules. I'd love to see his portfolio!

Yes, They got this Depression on, all right!

Sometimes things which may not seem connected are actually together.....don't be fooled by randomness as my buddy Nasim Taleb so artfully articulates in his book written before the more famous Black Swan.

I said this once, and I'll say it again, I got to respect your ratings, especially if they are indicative of your actual portfolio. 

You're not a dumb#ss, or I wouldn't keep reading your work. Honestly, it is some of the more though provoking information on this site, and if Taleb is a 'buddy' of yours, well...damn! Your stock went up a few points.

I come at this forum from the stance of a householder in middle America, a business owner and a trader. That's all. I've lived through some crashes and recessions, wars and whatnot. I just don't see a huge calamitous, world or even nationwide collapse pending.

Now that ain't to say Uncle Sam isn't going to find his teats in a twist at the hands of many different parties; foreign and domestic. He will. And it will suck for all of us.

In the mean time, buy Rhodium, not Gold. It is a way better play.


Have Fun.

Amazing how people are nitpicking...

You are right and I fear what is coming our way. 

I am still trying to figure out what is coming our way.   Your 11.10.9 date coincides with Sinclair's 16 days left.

Perhaps this is all in response to this.  Any comments?  You're right to say keep you eye on the USD.  Is this the triggering event that will ignite the the selloff of the USD?

Here is my prediction.
Due to massive money printing huge inflation will be coming our way. Exactly when I cannot say. Budgets now are stretched and broken, our future wages will seem a token. We'll buy less and even less, putting retailers in duress. Less tax revenue for state; unemployed protest their fate. Weakened, taxed businesses fold; Obama confiscates your gold. Only ones with jobs will be, pencil pushers in DC.

It's very obvious that U.S. economy HAS to go through some changes. Since 1992 when I moved to this country most changes have been in negative direction.

-Instead of following Europeans and make better fuel efficent cars we made bigger cars, SUVs, and gas guzzlers. Scientists backed by oil companies told us that Cars and Trucks are not even an issue when it comes to global warming or even energy crises. They told us for years and years that most problems are energy production related. Now out of a sudden cars and trucks are problems. I hate it when scientists go against common sense! And they usually do that for financial gains. I remeber my physics teacher was saying that cars and trucks have no effects at all on smog and global warming???!!! what an idiot. I also remeber my math teacher in Germany telling us there will be never negative growth of human population in Germany...what a load of crap...German population, Russians population and some other countries population is actually decreasing.

-For years and years we have ignored our problems while other countries made great efforts. We have basically no public trasnportation, no working healthcare.

-Why does a bypass surgery in Iran which is conducted by British and American educated Surgents costs $30,000 while it costs $140,000 in Los Angeles.

- I have seen min. wage going in the wrong direction, year after year we have had inflation but government denies it. Even today, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a husband and wife who work full time and get paid min. wage to buy a house...not even in the worst areas of Compton.

- Hous prices have gone in the wrong direction. The tragedy about this housing crisis is that the needed new housing projects are being put on hold. There is still strong demand for new homes and our population is growing, but instead once again we will have less homes and higher prices. Government and big business will never allow the housing to reach an equalibrium...something that should be the goal of any capitalistic societies.

- While other countries have moved on (Spain, Italy, Brazil, Argentine, Iran, China, India, and so on) and have less corruption in their government and have a more transparents government, we have more corrupt government which is basically tainted by big corporation. Big corporations have sickened our government and country like cancer and the winner are CEOs with million dollar saleries and bonuses and we can't do anything about it. "too big to fail" is a term and makes me angry to the the term " war on terror" is something that big corporations came up with to get our money. Since when should the government of a capitalistic society bail out a company???? How come they didn't bail out my company?

- We are going in the wrong direction when it comes to gangs, drugs, violence. I remeber in 1195 or so a 5 year old kid was shot and killed and everyone was in shock and awe here in Los Angeles. Feew weeks ago a 5 month baby was shot in the head point blank by a gangmember and it didn't even make to 10 o'clock news!!!!!

I am very open minded: Tell me 1 thing that has become better or has gone to the right direction in the past 16 years and you have made my day.

Meanwhile Germany is making solar panels like crazy...China is going around the world and making oil contracts like crazy...Scandinavians are building wind turbines like crazy...and we sit back and look how Obama looks in his stupid "famlily Photo." He has let us down big time and he should be impeached.

And meanwhile big corporations are making big profits. Look at Devry a ghetto school corporation becoming a S&P 500 member....whhhhaaaaaaaat???!!!!

Everything is going the wrong direction for the U.S. now and everything is going the right way for South America, China, Iran, Russia, and European countries.

But hey...who cares....we just care that the freaking dog was not in Obama's family picture. That idiot has to go.

^ It's a good thing that the majority of the people don't think this way - we'd never have a leader in office for more than a few months, if that.  I can't even imagine how f@!#$ up this country would be.  Being a leader makes you a target - any decision made is going to piss off someone, so while all the Obama haters  (actually, lets just call them president haters) would rather see someone else take the job, none of them really understand what being in a leadership position entails - and if placed in that position, would fail as miserably as the leader that they wanted removed.
