Subject: IT’S COMING, BUT IT ISN’T TERRORISM
Ladies & gentlemen:
It is 8:50 AM PDT, President Bush is giving a live speech talking tough about terror, and again vowing to defeat the enemy. The DOW is down 140 points, but that means nothing anymore. Now that we have the Plunge Protection Team in play, I watch the DOW like I watch a basketball game: I watch the last 1/2 hour, and that tells me everything.
At present, our borders are still wide open, allowing just about anybody to enter the United States at will, while Tom Ridge of Homeland Security is asking that the Posse Comitatus laws that prohibit the use of the American Military within our borders, be “re-evaluated”. In other words, Ridge wants the laws changed to allow the American Military to operate within our cities and our communities, presumably to fight the terrorists that have galloped across the border unhindered and now plot their devious evils within our very midst.
If you believe that terrorist angle, I’ve got a terrific deal on a bridge for you.
It’s coming, but it isn’t terrorism. These steps being taken are not to combat terror, but to combat the anticipated terror that will be unleashed by the American public against this federal government, and the only thing that could trigger that is something that negatively impacts a significant portion of the American population in a relatively short period of time.
I suspect our president knows what it is, be it an impending and unstoppable economic crash that wipes out retirement accounts and ends Social Security and welfare benefits, or a more aggressive move on the part of this government that will enrage enough citizens to finally take action against it in self-defense — as our Founding Fathers did. I don’t know for certain, of course, but my guess is they are anticipating a financial collapse of catastrophic proportions. It is now 9:10 AM PDT, and the DOW is down 170 points.
This should be an interesting day.
By the way, a number of you have asked when I think it would be a good time to start buying stocks again. Speaking just for me, I will reinvest when the DOW gets down to around 5,500 and not before. Gold is still doing quite well, by the way! American Gold Eagle coins are going for $353.00 right now, and real estate is a great investment for the long run.
