Hansen has a good high priced line of consumables that are, more or less depending on the product, largely unnecessary in the marketplace. This market is still going down. For example; we are going to be feeling the consumer ramifications of last months largest layoff in years about 3-6 months from now, the car market is on the skids going deeper, (and in denial of it), more layoffs are coming in all sectors, and the economy is clearly in a fast moving downward spiral, and has been gaining momentium since 9/11. Plus the G will have to start paying baby boomers Medicare in 2 years, and S.S. in 3. The number retireing are staggering. S.S. was legally set up as the largest Ponzi scheme of all time. Now, Can you give me one reason the economy will pick up? For these reasons I will short Hansen. Please give me a reason(s) I shouldn't short Hansen. Please give me a reason(s) the economy will pick up?

One reason not to short HANS: Congress will have to be up all night writing checks to give away to people that will give themselves bonuses. They will need to drink a lot of Monsters to stay up. BOOM!!!! Done.
