icebeg ahead

Right now soon are seeing that there is no recovery. This was a stock market prop up. What will coming is a gloomy cynicism. Yeah, because we do not get out of our severe recession. Actually, it turns into a deep depression soon. Politicians will point fingers and play a blame game...

This will not solve anything or help anyone. Titanic will hit the iceberg and start sinking, but people will refuse to believe that things are getting worse.

States are closing libraries early to save money. Teachers are being let go. Folks, this is not a sign of recovery.

Hiring Outlook

I see a sad future for many companies. Friends, our situation is very grim. They will have to make difficult decisions in days to come. Sadly, our recession is on going. It will last for many years. Stock market may seem to be prop up. However, it only does so seem. In fact, the sad reality is that last month only 19,000 houses were built and this is the lowest month ever.

Gaddafi soon gone

Gaddafi gave a rambling incoherent speech on TV saying he would die a martyr. Sadly over 2,000 people are no more. This is the bitter fruit of a repressive regime. People need to become more aware. 90% of Libya is in rebel hands now. Hopefully, the night mare will be soon over. We hope so. God bless you.

Location of vortex is important to us. Cats are excellent vortex hunters according to Steven Gibbs, but I prefer this EMF meter of mine. The neighbors cat likes to sleep over a vortex when it is open. Usually, a vortex is hard to detect, but here are some pointers for you.

It will be like a bald spot in the grass. Ofter there is an anthill in this bare area. Also look for twisted trees growing near.

Obama Budget

They increase defense programs. However, cut heating for the poor. Folks, this is sad, and I am not making it up. I thought our prez was on the side of the poor. Well, this Obama Budget shows I was wrong. Military keeps growing. Hey, there are too many weapons. Yeah, and too many wars.

Heat subsidies for poor

Obama's budget would cut heat subsidies for the poor. This is not good news. Perhaps they think they are no longer necessary. Yeah, with global warming. Folks, we are very unhappy now. Outside is cold and icy. There is a lot of snow. People should think about our poor.

Borders on the brink

Borders bookstore is on the brink of bankruptcy now. It is the tragic end to an epic saga. OK some how we all knew this could not end well for our flawed hero or shall we say zero. Basically, there was no way. Yeah, no way that borders could compete with amazon and win. It lost the war. There remains as survivor amazon.

What is real unemployment?

OK so what is the real unemployment number now? Well I believe it is a lot higher that what we are seeing. In fact, it might be twice the stated number or higher even. Problem is that politicians change the counting rules to make the unemployment number far smaller in size.

Luxury is an interesting word for us. What does it mean? Perhaps that we have plenty of money. OK so much that we can spend on things that are not necessary. Sadly, our planet is running out of resources. This means less luxury in the days to come.

Borders writes final chapter

Borders book store writes its final chapter now. This is one grim saga. It has gone on many years. People were hoping that they could pull out of the recession. Sadly, that is not our case. Digital is getting rid of paper. In the future people will not be using hard covers anymore. Like it is too expensive. Better take some time off and visit the book store now. I seriously doubt that they will be around in the days to come.

Wall street is all smoke and mirrors. We know it has been prop up. When was is next for the money magicians. Maybe they will make more of your money disappear, never to reappear.

People speak of liberty, but they know not what they say. For example, in Egypt there are going to be elections soon. The question is who will win. Perhaps it is religious ones. They will bring sharia law and make slaves of women. I can tell you this is not good news. Believe it or not, in terms of liberty, people were better off before the riots started as they will soon see.

Oil goes up

Oil goes parabolic over Egypt crisis. This should not come as a major surprise. Hope it did not startle any of us. Folks, we could see this one coming. It is after all a very volatile area. That said, people need to prepare. I see major oil shortages coming.
