Good morning all, welcome back from your weekend. Unless of course you work in a bank or something and you're off for the Columbus Holiday. Then, I'm extremely jealous of you.

Hello all....

Well it's happened again.  Over in Brussels, there's been explosions at a train station and the airport. News is still coming in, but it seems like over 30 dead and over 100 wounded.

Let's guess who it wasn't....

Pearl Harbor day.  On this date in 1941 360 Japanese fighters attacked our harbor, kicking off the Pacific theatre of WWII.  What a terrible loss of life.

How sad.

Is Paris Burning?

I like to study history, because quite often what we are told happened, is quite different from what really did happen.  While it is attributed to just about every world leader of recent times, the adage “history is written by the winners” goes back millennium, in various twists.  I’ve seen it as “History is written by those who have hanged hero’s”  and I’ve seen other variants such as  "History is the version of past events that people have decided to agree upon."

While researching various incidents that occurred during WWII I was given a book called “Is Paris Burning?”  The thrust of the book was that when Hitler realized that France was going to be liberated, he instructed the Generals in charge of the French occupation to burn Paris to the ground as his troops evacuated the area. But the main man in charge of that operation had reservations about doing it. It didn’t seem like a humane thing to do, and he continued to put it off. Ultimately he refused to give the order, despite an almost hysterical Hitler demanding it.

Good morning all, and a happy Thursday to you.

Yesterday was one of those inexplicable events that tends to not make a lot of sense. Some really smart people were asking the same question...why was the market soaring with all the so called terror activity going on and the Fed minutes talking even heavier concerning lifting rates in Dec?  You can come up with a bunch of theories but all in all, it did seem a bit outsized and strange.

Good morning all, happy Wednesday to you all.

Yesterday turned into quite a mess during the afternoon. The market was doing what we thought it would do, which is add to the gains we had Monday. But then things went to hell in a handbag when news hit that over in Hamburg, a soccer match was canceled because of "concrete" terror bombing threats. Then all manner of rumors and "quotes" started flying around. The first was that an ambulance packed with explosives had been found. Then they said there was no explosives. People were freaking out that the Paris thing was still in play with different cells in different nations acting out their parts.

1.7.2015 Terror In France Bookmark

Terror In France.
While the reports are still sketchy, it looks like some militants have shot up a bunch of folks at a French magazine known for political and Religious satire. Some reports have the terrorists shouting "allah!".  If I wasn't fighting the flu, and having all I can do to just keep my head up, I'd go off on this in a big way. We've seen this sort of things over and over and then the Islamic leaders rush out to tell us how Islam is a religion of peace.   Well I'm sorry, a dozen dead people doesn't denote peace to me. Any radicals that think they need to shoot up innocent folks for the "crime" of making a cartoon...need to be hung.

Sorry folks.... that story just rubs me wrong this morning.
