Prepping: For REAL Climate Change

The histrionics of ‘weather reporters’ – leaning into non-extent winds and such – are not the “thinking point” today’s note related to “climate change.”  Instead, there are a lot of very simple observations and...

A Cautious Look at Growth

Big smoke – not so much fire.  And we’ll pass on where some of that smoke has been blown (ahem!)… We return to a familiar topic this morning with some fresh data to ponder:  What is “growth” and how is both the media and the political...

Prepping: A Hybrid eBike Concept

I am not one to go about trying to find new (and creative) ways to break the law…We assiduously uphold the law, even when it’s self-serving and occasionally outright freedom-restricting. That said, we see how laws are sometimes made for more than keeping...

Fake Out Rally: We Warned You…

The Dow Jones Industrials rose some 208 points Thursday.  This morning, though, we look to give-back all but 3-bucks of that; if not all of it and then some. So, the first thing out of the hopper today (and this is not financial advice) is that we did mention this in...

Three Important “I Told You So’s”

Read ’em and weep – we keep telling you what’s ahead.  Things like…: Falling Markets Election Woes Climate Change Nonsense Time for a little “Personal Accounting” and Reality Checking this morning.  (Can you tell I’m sick of...

Markets: A Half-Hearted Monday (at Best)

After taking one “on the chin” Friday, and to our way of looking at things heading down to the S&P 2500 region sooner rather than later (*Not financial advice, just ole grumpy moi) we ought to have a “partial” day.  Down a hundred at some...

Post Collapse: Bicycles and SHTF
