  1. So you’re a Trump fan now? Don’t hold your breath.
  2. Vivek is a plant, and Trump has sniffed him out. For the 4 years during his administration he was hiring and then firing plants. Trump will probably go with his son as VP.
  3. The president of Iran died today in a helicopter crash. Let's see how much of a paper tiger Iran turns out to be.
  4. President of Iran goes down in a helicopter crash.  It’s a remote area, they have been delayed in finding the crash site.

      It's been reported that the president of Iran is dead.  Things are about to heat up.

      Probably because their iPhone isn’t telling them to.  
      The Slovakian PM gets shot, and 5 days later the Iranian president.  What will happen next?

  5. No, I still work, though once we are through this upcoming economic downturn, I’ll have the freedom to flip a coin over it. Speaking of which, I hope you are prepared for it as well. Funny thing, my wife and I went down to a place called Ocean City on the coast in WA last summer. The key note speaker was a retiree from Boeing, oddly enough. Got up every morning at 3:30 to make his shift, for 30 years. Raised a family and retired early. Really amazing guy.
  6. Wow, you've been really busy on this forum. Did you lose your job or something?
  7. No no. I’m talking about Japan. Not the USA. Japan. And I’m not American but Canadian. What I’m presenting to you is that Japan is in economic trouble. I’m asking you if you still think they are fine with their dangerous debt to GDP ratio, now that their Yen is the lowest it’s been since whenever, and has dropped much further than it was during our last conversation last February. You have responded that Japan can issue bonds, and I thought I pointed out that bonds are not working for Zimbabwe and Argentina. In other words, bonds are not the answer. Weaker nations are getting into serious difficulties, let’s see if the contagion spreads by the end of summer.
  8. You seem to be suggesting that Japan can sell bonds to solve their issues. How has that been working for Zimbabwe or Argentina?
  9. Dear August, you said this in response to my comment below, which you quoted: “Let me throw some numbers at you. US debt to GDP is at 128%, and climbing. No nation has ever been able to come back from 130%. They go bankrupt.” I responded that we should watch and see what happens to Japan. Have you seen what’s been happening to Japanese currency? Because it looks like they are in real trouble now.
  10. Isn't it hard for you to kick against the goads?

  11. Good find, pretty hilarious! I note that in this mornings news, it’s being reported that leader after leader is calling on Israel to show restraint. Don’t respond. Let cooler heads prevail. The media is not reporting on any condemnations of Iran. It kind of tells you the lay of the political landscape these days.
  12. And they have just crossed a line... https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-68810053 "Iran has launched drones at Israel, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) said on Saturday night. It said the wave could take hours to reach Israel." https://www.cbc.ca/news/world/iran-cargo-ship-seized-1.7173115 "Earlier Saturday, Iran's Revolutionary Guards seized an Israeli-linked cargo ship in the Strait of Hormuz. The move came days after Tehran said it could close the crucial shipping route and warned it would retaliate for an Israeli strike on its consulate in Syria."
  13. The judge has allowed a person that badly abused her position(s) with an underling. While throwing cash money around so it couldn't be later tracked, lying about both in court. She's the guiltier of the two, but gets to remain. That's pretty funny, judge. I look with interest to see what the Georgia Bar comes up with since her indiscretions have apparently been referred to them. A lawyer can't lie in court, misappropriate funds, etc. But it is the GEORGIA Bar, so they may try to split the baby as well.
  14. Okay, and what’s his solution? Socialism for everyone? I believe we would differ on a solution…
  15. I am saying nothing of the sort. I’m saying if the US hadn’t forced their will across the globe for the last 60 years, then we wouldn’t be facing an evil alliance in the BRICS, for instance. Other than that, there is little that can be done about it at this point. The US is in decline and the bill for global meddling is due. There may be nuclear strikes. Who knows.
  16. Wake up. This new alliance of tyrants is the direct result of US policies, interference and CIA meddling across the globe for the last 60+ years. Economic warfare. Sanctions and missile strikes. Deposing leaders. Outright war. It’s a disgusting abuse of power, done while lying to its people and the world.
  17. After Scotus ruled that States can’t strike Trump from the ballot, Haley realized that her one slim chance died. That and she was running out of money, nobody wants to back a loser.
  18. Aaaaand Haley quits the race. https://abcnews.go.com/amp/Politics/nikki-haley-ends-presidential-campaign-major-trump-rival/story?id=106568226 “ Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is planning on suspending her campaign for president in the wake of a slew of Super Tuesday losses, campaign sources tell ABC News. This now leaves leaving former President Donald Trump as the last major candidate standing among Republicans, all but guaranteeing him the party's nomination…”
  19. Of course it’s no mystery and I’m not claiming some sort of mystery. All I’m saying is the smart money is leaving the market, taking profits because they know a major market drop is coming. The problem is people like you, if you are what you are representing yourself as. Telling people(your clients) not to take their holdings out of the markets when the smart money is beginning to move. Because your totals would go down and you might lose bonuses. Again, if are what you say you are. Its industry wide. The financial sector in general. I have several colleagues and family members who are following this type of advice, and they are going to take a bath when the market shifts. I’m doing what the smart money is doing. The dumb money is buying in at the peak. With encouragement from people like you.
  20. No, I’m not that interested in what Buffet said or says. I explained that already, it’s what they DO that matters. Plus I’m not watching just Buffet, like I explained already, I’m keeping track of multiple movers and shakers. Here’s another story involving such people and that they’ve exited over 11 billion out of the stock market: https://fortune.com/2024/02/27/the-great-cashout-jeff-bezos-leon-black-jamie-dimon-and-the-walton-family-have-now-sold-a-combined-11-billion-in-company-stock-this-month-some-for-the-first-time-ever/amp/ “High-profile CEOs, founders, and heirs are selling stock by the bucketload in the companies that made them billionaires. For nearly the entire bunch, share prices are trading near all-time highs. … Jeff Bezos sold Amazon sharesworth $8.5 billion in multiple transactions this month. Meanwhile, Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, sold $150 million in stock last week, … Mark Zuckerberg unloaded about 1.4 million shares of Meta stock worth roughly $638 million, according to an analysis from insider stock sales data firm Verity. This latest batch of sales came after previously culling 588,200 shares in November, 688,400 in December, and 447,200 in January.” Jamie Dimon, Jeff Bezoz, the Walmart owners-Waltons, Zuckerberg. This is on top of what Buffet’s been doing. It’s significant, they are reducing their exposure to the markets because they expect a significant drop in the market. If everything was fine they simply wouldn’t be exiting the markets in these numbers.
  21. https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/supreme-court/supreme-court-rules-trump-cannot-kicked-colorado-ballot-rcna132291 "In an unsigned ruling with no dissents, the court reversed the Colorado Supreme Court, which had determined that Trump could not serve again as president under Section 3 of the Constitution's 14th Amendment. The provision prohibits those who previously held government positions but later “engaged in insurrection” from running for various offices." There is no denying that Trump Derangement Syndrome is alive in various State courts as others besides Colorado also had similar rulings. They are going to have to go back to the drawing board, obviously. The recent Illinois ruling comes to mind.
  22. Anyone who can think critically can see that inflation has been much higher than that. And they’ll simply change the definition when needed, like what constitutes a recession, for instance.
  23. Happy Independence Day Texas.  

  24. Pre WWII Britain faced an uncertain future, and wisely chose Chamberlain who gave them "Peace In Our Time". What they really needed was a Churchill, but they didn't know it. They found out though.
  25. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/who-could-be-next-largest-canadian-pension-fund-sells-manhattan-office-tower-1 "Canada Pension Plan Investment Board has recently done three deals at deeply discounted prices, selling its interests in a pair of Vancouver towers, and a business park in Southern California, but it was its Manhattan office tower redevelopment project that shocked the industry: the Canadian asset manager sold its stake for just $1. The worry now is that such firesales will set an example for other major investors seeking a way out of the turmoil too…"
