Flying America into a Crash, Woo-Woo, 3D Afterthoughts

Maybe one more uptick to go this week before things get “interesting.” See, there are many parts to the game of Musical Chairs – subtext “the Blame Game” – being played now: The GOP budget no-go-ciators are trying to unwind the Buy’ed Em madness hamstringing of America’s energy independence.  The dim’s are going-along with the … Read More

NFIB and “Pre-Quake Energy?”

Life marches on – and with it, me – off to get an updated eye prescription.  So we will try to remain “focused” for a change.  (Argh!) First item on the list is the National Federation of Independent Business report looking at forward conditions:  Yes, they’re coming.  But, no, not yet… Owners expecting better business … Read More

A Monday Note

I have mentioned for a couple of months now that one of my sources, who I call “the doc for the men who stare at goats” fellow was worried about April (mid to second half) about a major “darkness” about to befall Earth. He (and his sources) weren’t able to put it into more precise … Read More

ShopTalk Sunday: Prepping the Shop? Woo Notes

We may come to a time of “impact risk this week” and, along with it the possibility of supply chain disruptions looms large.

CFNAI, Etc. – Please Go, Joe – Shopping the Future

Money Monday, and we will see in coming hours if my going short into the close of stocks Friday will be a hit or a miss.  Small wager only – no point bleeding out before The End.

Bitter is Still Coming, Equinox Woo

The temps dropped in East Texas overnight.  The leading edge of expressed “bitterness” in the coming weeks and even months.  A period with more of an Angostura bent than most. Tomorrow night, we’ll kiss freezing out here, but that should be the last of Nature’s winter. Man’s winter will be measured in years. In Economic … Read More

Fed Bails the Rich (Again) – More Monday Woo-Woo

Here’s what half a century of news reporting (and management geeking) teaches pretty clearly. When the first line of a press release begins: “To support American businesses and households, the Federal Reserve Board on Sunday announced it will make available additional funding to eligible depository institutions to help assure banks have the ability to meet … Read More

A Bit of Sunday Woo-Woo School

As you may have guessed, I got up super early Sunday because I forgot that this was “daylight time weekend.” After writing up the outdoor/yardwork and gardening adventures of Saturday, I decided it might be a good idea to “re-synch with the time change.” After a high protein breakfast (two egg tomato and cheese omelet … Read More

Quoting Myself, Fed Dread II – Nightmare on Wall St.

Check back for the Housing report in a few minutes.  Employment costs and more in a sec, too, (scroll down) but let’s start lightly… Quoting Ure You know why we don’t put our content out in the public eye, right?  Because we offer some really useful ideas over there.  Here’s an exact quote from Saturday … Read More

ShopTalk Sunday: Woo-Woo Event? Fire Tank Arrives

Since this is a holiday weekend (no work Monday for many) I didn’t get serious in the shop real early Saturday.  Too damn cold.  It was 26 F and will be in the high 70’s today.  You know the saying: “Pappy didn’t raise no fool.” Besides, I’m grappling with a case of woo-woo. Hell of … Read More

Mexico Invades U.S. – CPI Data – Woo-Woo “Day of 12”

For those who argued our long-stated position – that the U.S. was in a LIC (Low-Intensity-Conflict) with Mexico – and losing since the early 2000s, the proof is here, whether you like it or not.

The “Big Slide” – Jobs – D.C. Dicklock

It’s a nice Friday.  My new CPAP machine is working great, thanks.  With a good night’s sleep, along with a forecast high of 74F today, what could possibly go wrong? As it turns out: plenty. Long-term?  Dismal Being a self-centered, greedy, semi-retired scrooge, let me huff on the whiteboard marker and begin with the market outlook … Read More

Woo-Woo: More to Ukraine – A UAP Angle?

A well-placed source draws our attention to this not widely reported link between events in Ukraine and UAPs – recently of high interest. The first couple of pages of this paper rock. From the “Main Astronomical Observatory, NAS of Ukraine, Zabalotnoho 27, 03680, Kyiv, Ukraine.” Two classes of UAPs emerge. [2208.1121] Unidentified aerial phenomena … Read More
