I fail

Yea that's why I don't play the stock markets. DJIA over 7K again for several days? Was 6500 the bottom? Tough to say.

Monday, March 02, 2009


Last week I predicted 6372 at 10% loss for the week. Might have hit it except there was an upswing last week. Either way final tally is don 351 for the week, 299 of that today, for 5% off for the week 4% of that today.

What happened over the weekend? More bailouts to AIG.

Yea. Revising another 5% for the week puts stocks at 6424 next week.

Still say 5K or lower by May.

Obama going after the guns

We knew it was an question of when.

Looks like using the Mexican Drug War as an excuse Eric Holder (Obama's AG) has declared that Obama wants to re-enact the Assault Weapons Ban. Of course this time around it will be much, much worse.

Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons"..."I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum" (It would "help" stem the flow of guns to Mexico).

Yes ban guns from law abiding citizens in order to "help" stem the flow into Mexico.

"I think closing the gun show loophole, the banning of cop-killer bullets and I also think that making the assault weapons ban permanent, would be something that would be permitted under Heller"

There is NO "gun show loophole". What Holder is talking about is banning private sales of firearms, meaning selling a gun to your neighbor, friend, or in the paper. There are already laws covering if you sell many guns this way as a form of income. Do it without a license and go to jail. Banning these sales would be the same thing as making it so you couldn't sell your car unless you sold it to a dealer and the dealer could sell it to someone else.

There are NO "cop-killer bullets". Throwing this scare tactic term out allows the AG to go after ALL ammo except maybe the lowly .22...until someone uses that to kill a cop. Any caliber rifle has the capability to penetrate a vest. Say goodbye to that 30-30 lever action that's been in your family for 4 generations.

The new Assault Weapons Ban will also include language making it the discretion of the AG as to what guns are designed strictly for sporting purpose. If a gun is use for anything but sporting (police and military), even if it also used in sporting, than it can and will be banned. Say goodbye to a Remington 700 bolt action rifle. It's used by police and military snipers today. Say goodbye to the Remington 870 and Mossberg 500 pump shotguns. They are used by the police and military today.

Haven't even gotten to registration, insurance, and ammo microstamping yet.

7114 is what the DJIA closed at today.

Expect sub 7 tomorrow. Off 50% from it's high of 14,093 on Oct 12, 2007. The real decline started however when a few things happened.

1) TARP - would have been better to let Fannie/Freddie and crooked banks fail
2) Obviousness that Zer0bama would clench the Democratic Nomination.

Since passing Porkulus stocks have declined 800 points (10.25%)

Losing 10% a week would put DJIA at 6372.25 a week from today, 5,719 next week.

Now I don't think it's going to go down that fast, but expect it, and expect it further.

Zer0bama, BAD for the USA.

Lies of Obama

During Obama's campaign he made several promises, some of them specifically on the way bills and laws are made.

1. Make Government Open and Transparent
2. Make it impossible for Congressmen to slip in Pork Barrel Projects
3. Meetings where laws are written will be more open to the public
4. No more secrecy
5. Public will have 5 days to look at a Bill
6. You’ll know what’s in it.
7. We will put every pork barrel project online.

ALL SEVEN of these promises were broke during the process of the Stimulus debate and soon to be signing.
