Sea Levels

 

Sarasota Florida has meetings over “dangerous” Sea level rise. Let’s chat:

 

If any of you have ever been to SouthWest Florida, you know that there’s many places on our coast to try and find fossilized shark teeth. In fact, while “Venice” is usually known as ground zero for finding these little treasures, the fact is that right at the southern end of Venice, there’s a beach called Casperson.

It’s Official
 
NOTE>>> I WROTE THE BULK OF TODAYS COMMENTARY ON TUESDAY AFTERNOON, JUST HOURS AHEAD OF WHAT WAS TO BECOME THE YOUTUBE SHOOTING. THAT’S INTERESTING.
 
This is from USA Today:
 
LONDON - When British police launched a murder investigation Tuesday into the shooting death of a 17-year-old girl it pushed the homicide rate in Britain's capital to a new, troubling milestone: London's murder rate surpassed New York City's for the first time.

Moving Parts
 
It’s really hard to keep up. Every day there appears to be some new “fret” or some new development to think about. Consider this:
 
Last week the market was in a funk, as they blamed the mess on the China Tariff’s and how we’re probably going to be in a trade war. I held no such belief, and suggested that Trump is just being Trump. He tosses out outlandish ideas, see’s what gets the best reaction and works with it.

Can You Hear Me Now?
 
If you want to look really really stupid, just go ahead and make predictions about the future. Except for a handful of very rare people, the Cosmic universe seems to get a chuckle out of making fools out people who attempt to predict the future.
 
If you want proof of that, just consider what Mother nature does to your typical weatherman just about every week. These guys are pretty happy if they get a 55% correct ratio. That’s not much above 50/50. Coin flips tend to average that.

Unspoil Me
 
There are things that make me go “Hmmmm?” and then there’s things that make me go “What the Hell???” This is one of them.
 
This world gets creepier all the time. Not just the weird perversions, not the “deep state” and their machinations, not just the elitist agenda for the world. No, it’s deeper than that. You’ve got Satanists, you’ve got weird sects, you’ve got all manner of strange things.
 
Well, I have another one for you to chalk up to “pretty weird”. First off, let’s start off with this:

2018 Elections?

 

A couple weeks ago I was talking about the increased censorship we were seeing from Google and Facebook and YouTube. It was getting really ugly, and anyone with a Christian, or alternative news outlet was getting blocked and shut down.  Now, that wasn’t terribly surprising to me, because about a year ago I wrote about Youtube setting up a “tattle tale” operation, actually rewarding people who shut down the most sites for “inappropriate’ language.

Too Much?
 
When you write two letters per week for over 22 years, you certainly have covered a lot of ground. Which often begs the question, is there anything to write about? Hasn’t it all been covered? Ha! I would like nothing more than to tell you all that the world is so boring that I have nothing to discuss. What a blessing that would be.

Long Term Holds
 
Quite often we seem to get “accused” of playing only very short term trades, and ignoring the longer term holds. To a certain extent that’s true. Not because we have anything against long term holds, in fact we have several of them in place as we speak. No, the reason we haven’t been focusing on longer term holds lately, is precisely what we saw happen in February.
 
The “correction” that hit in February was the single fastest drop of 10% the market’s really ever seen, and it was obscenely overdue. If you look back at the history of the DOW, what you often see is that somewhere between 8,9, or 10 years into a rising market, it changes direction. Sometimes it’s a simple correction, and sometimes it’s a crash.

Here’s My Issue
 
Yeah, this is about guns again. If you’re an “anti” gun person then I’m sure what you’re seeing with these companies distancing themselves from the NRA is probably making you quite happy. I’m sure that seeing Dicks Sporting announcing that they’re no longer selling “assault” rifles is tickling you. But I do think you’re missing the bigger point here.

Told Ya?
 
I take no pleasure in being right about how the anti-gun left would utilize it’s supposed power, to try and go after the “choke points” for gun buyers and, that prediction came true immediately.
 
Trying to appease the social snowflakes, no less than 13 companies have now severed ties with the NRA, and several card processors are in “deep thought” about ending their relationships with gun manufacturers and sellers.
