Coping: Labels of Convenience

So, this man walks into the local county courthouse, al disheveled, drooling a bit, and wearing clothes that looked like they hadn’t been washed in month or two.  Reeked to high heaven. Worse, the man smelled like a hog pen, he was carrying an “Anarchy Now” sign, and most of his teeth had left with the meth he’d started smoking years ago… “May I help you, sir?” asked the government employee behind the desk. “I’m here to register to run for office.” “And which party, sir?” “Well, as a Republican, … Continue reading

The Shape-Shift of Global Energy

Been reading a fascinating book (I’ll give you the title in a sec.) and it makes some amazing forecasts related to energy, some of which I hinted at in Friday’s Urban column. This morning we consider the economic implications but not before running Paul Ryan down for allowing turncoat Republicans of Convenience to escape being named…which is why he pulled the healthcare bill rather than have the turncoats revealed. It’s a world of filth, smut, oil, political intrigue and social carnage. Oh, and money, too. Just our kind of place. … Continue reading

The Big Changes that Matter Are in Background

The stock market will recover a bit more of its 200+ point nosebleed experienced earlier in the week. But there are many “moving parts” going on in background that you may not be aware of because they are not as simple to dispense and “keeping up with the class” is more than a 5-second Trump-bash. 1.  NASA has a real breakthrough in life extension.  Supposedly developed to extend astronaut lives for long trips (like going to Mars), the UK Daily Mail reports human trials could begin in as little as … Continue reading

Coping: Dogwood Days and Alien Abductions

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a picture of one of our dogwood trees that was blooming much earlier than expected because of (don’t make me say “climate change” or I’ll puke) an early Spring around here. This weekend, Palestine, Texas will celebrate the first of three weekends of Dogwood Trail Days.  To give you an idea of how the canine-trees are doing, here’s an update look at the one off to the side of the shop carport… There are lots of other reasons to come to Palestine, Texas.  … Continue reading


Although the Colonies have had to save British bacon a couple of times (WW I and WW II come to mind) they are generally good people and bright. But after the last radical Islamist did intentional harm it has become clear to us that the people of Europe (the Brits excepted) are some of the most brain-washed, politically correct fools around. Mark these words:  The Continent will feel even more pain because the Muslim Reconquista is just in the warm-up phase. Sadly, for the Brits, turning off the hate and blowing … Continue reading

Coping: Millennial’s Missing Manual [keyword: Mate]

(Simple Title art) Reader Note: If you are just catching on, each Thursday we’re are doing a chapter each week of a book I’m writing for Millennials – teaching the insights that will (hopefully!) allow them to live long and prosper – and be around to clean up after us Old People who made a mess of getting civilization this far. There are three sections to each chapter. Something you can read to children, a general reader part, and the advanced/business section. Here’s where the book has explored so far: … Continue reading

A Pause or a Panic?

We will skip the usual chit-chat about “routine news”  today – although some headlines will be included because they directly impact market psychology…  This aside, there are some very important developments in how Global Markets are organized and readers have asked for some in-depth remarks on our forecast of a year and a half back in which we raised the possibility that the week of March 6 this year would line up with the all-time high in 1929. While that is certainly true, there’s a lot more to it than … Continue reading

Waiting for the Inflows

We will have an update Wednesday for our subscribers on how our latest market observations are working out.  Follow-up to last weekend’s discussion about Global Market Entrainment and Historical Resonance. In the meantime, though,  everything – and I do mean everything – hinges on the global markets ability to make an upside breakout. As I showed recently, the old high in the global index we construct was 24,315 and that was the all time high in 2015. Since then, we have seen a decent pullback, but as of this morning’s check … Continue reading

Coping: When You Find Yourself in the Asylum

I was thinking Monday (after revisiting my pillow for a while) “What would people find really useful – compelling – conversation on a Tuesday morning? I kept staring at the headlines about the Shill and Comey staging in Washington when it hit me like a ton of bricks! How to survive in an Insane Asylum!!! Yes, a visit to our Comments section pretty-well made the decision for me: Seems like everyone today is fairly NUTS. Unable to get anyone to agree anymore, everyone has been reduced to what I think … Continue reading
