place your bets

believe it or not, i'm still extremely ill. allergies, i'm guessing, are to blame for my now 8 day headache with no relief. as a child, i referred to this as my summer cold. i must be allergic to beauty, because everything is sun-shiny, green and gorgeous.

i wish everything wouldn't have coincided with the first of the month and the end of the blodge meet, because i'm seriously behind in all aspects of my life. work is insanity. it feels in my office as it did in the late 90's, never enough time to meet the needs of the folks.

which brings me to my gambling scenario. if you are a profiteering soul and would like in on the action, listen up.

it's common knowledge that the stock market is a forward thinking mechanism. the market tries to predict on a daily basis what the worth of any given company will be in a month, 6 months, a year, five years. it's a market of prediction, by any standard. so when it's hitting six year records on a near daily basis, and just 100 points from an all time high, what do you think that means about our economy? are we healthy or over-zealous?

it's also common knowledge that the media is in direct opposition to the market. it is by nature a backward thinking mechanism. the media tells you what already has occurred, last hour, yesterday, a year ago (yes i'm sick of hearing from aruba!) it never tells how healthy our economy is, it tells you how it's been in THE PAST.

plus, if the media gave a rat's ass about investors, they would find realistic language to use in reference to the market, and stop with the sensationalist "rocketing" and "plummeting" lingo that stirs the mindless masses.

so, nearly daily, my feeble brain is being torn between two camps. the media, infecting all my investors with the diatribe that americans blame bush for our shitty economy. on the other hand, in my office, in real-time reality, no signs AT ALL of a shitty economy whatsoever. none. nada. zilch.

so place your bets. how economically healthy do you feel? are you better off today than you were four years ago? lets hear it, my lovelies. who do you love and who do you trust? is the media right or the market, because they definitely don't agree?

i love george bush!! i do!! with all his scowly wonderment, he IS responsible for this shitty economy. and people, it is the SHIT!! more of the same for me, please. and if you aren't enjoying the fruits of our nationwide productivity, you know who to blame, don't you? a capitalist can blame no one but himself. opportunity abounds, so stop whining and start working.

being the contrarian that you've learned to love, i'm going to stop working and start whining. i'm taking the boys to the pool to celebrate the fed's sixteenth straight interest rate hike. i know it's weird, but that's how we roll. may the sun shine on your portfolio and mine.

adios, y'all!

Let me just say that it is a great time to be a Snotty Rich Fuck. I'm getting snottier and richer on a daily basis. The nice thing is, this market is based on value as oppossed to the speculation of the late '90's. My IRA's and 401-K are in great shape and since I'm now 59 and 1/2 I can start tapping them. I love this economy!

Even sitting here unemployed I love this economy. If I look beyond my own tiny circle it's good. The market is strong. THAT'S evident in the fact that after only 3 months I have almost daily interviews. If folks are hiring sales people we're lookin' at growth.

Yeah, I'm likin' the market right now!!

Feel better soon!!!!!!
