North Korea
The dance continues.
 
NOTE>> A big Thank you to the folks that were generous enough to use the donate button to send some hurricane relief. I mentioned Sunday that I'd use any donate money to buy "stuff" for the people more inland than us who really got waffled in Irma. I want you all to know that yesterday afternoon, I took almost 900 dollars worth of food to 4 families that had lost almost everything in River floods. Thanks folks, you've been a blessing.

The Storm

Hello everyone, I've made it through the storm.  I'm sorry about not putting out a letter on Sunday or Wednesday, but as you all know, Hurricane Irma made a visit to our part of Florida and well, things just took a bit of time to get 'normal".
 
For some in Florida, normal won't be for two years. For others like me, normal started showing up Thursday when the power came on. So, while I don't want to bore you with all the gory details, let me give you the Readers Digest version of things.

Again?
 
It’s Monday morning. I’m sitting here looking at the spaghetti string models of Hurricane Irma. I have to tell you, I’m not warm and fuzzy with what I see. Yes it’s a week away. However, on this particular day, 4 of the “better” models have Irma hitting Southern Florida and coming right up the center of the state.  Only one has it putting in a really hard right turn late in the week and sending it up into the Carolina/Virginia area.

The Plan
 
Do you know the plan? Has anyone called you with it? No? Well me neither. So, since we don’t have the plan, the only thing we can do is ask questions and try and figure out that plan.
 
We are in the most bizarre of worlds. Not many know this, but when you add up the assets that have been bought by the leading Central banks of the world, you come up with a startling figure.

Statues of Hate?
 
With all the Madness going on across the country concerning the tearing down of Confederate statues, my goal for today was to show you that slavery was NOT, not even by a small margin, the reason behind the Civil war.

But maybe as luck might have it, there’s no sense in re-inventing the wheel, and Paul Craig Roberts did a pretty good article about that very topic recently. So I’m stealing it.  Some of the highlighted or bolded areas, I did. All Credit goes to Roberts:

Norway did it,
 
I’ve been telling you all;  about the Central banks of the world buying up stocks and propping the markets up. Hell, the Swiss National Bank owns more Facebook than Zuckerburg does.  Well, on the heels of all that, we also have to consider the sovereign wealth funds that are also heavily into buying stocks.

End Times?

 

There are some things that you just shouldn’t try and predict. The exact top or the exact bottom of a market for instance. Another that’s been a failed enterprise for several hundred years has been people claiming the end of the world. Many Preachers have claimed to know the exact date that the world would end, only to have the sun come up the next day, and life was exactly like the day before.

Wizard of OZ
 
In the movie the Wizard of Oz, the all-powerful, all knowing Oz really just turned out to be a little man behind a curtain, with no special powers, but who had all sorts of smoke and mirrors and eerie noises he could use.

The EMP Issue
 
 
The following in Italics is from News4Jax, and was penned by Mike Vasilinda for that news channel:
 
 
Meanwhile, 200 experts from 24 countries and dozens of states, including Florida, are in the nation's capitol, planning for what they are calling 'Black Sky' events: Catastrophic occurrences caused by man or nature that bring society to its knees. The cost of preventing a devastating blow is likely to show up on your electric bill.

It Is Different.

 

Every Monday, I reach out to my readers and ask them how their weekend was, and a little bit about what mine was like. In “general” terms, the wife and I use Sunday afternoons to take a 5 mile bike ride to the beach, pick a place to lay our towels and do some sunning and splashing in the gulf.  Then we walk back to the bikes, ride back to the truck and go home. It makes for a great day of sun and fun.
