Mornin' all, welcome to another day. 

One thing that has always kept me in the game here is that each day brings new absurdities to chat about.  It's pretty darned rare when I snuggle down into my office chair, and I'm not instantly slammed with some headline that is either amusing, infuriating, or blatantly false. I guess that's what drives me to try and connect the dots in this crazy world.

Muddy Water
 
Trying to predict the future is an exercise in being wrong a lot. Yet the future has an interesting way of showing up in our lives. So trying to connect the dots, and create some form of landscape of what the future could/should bring, at least makes sense.  
 
So before we get too far down this rabbit hole, let me say this. IF Hillary had stolen the election, I had a very clear and precise idea of what our future was going to look like.  It was easy, too easy. All we had to do was take the 8 years of Obama’s admin, look at what they did and how, and project that into the next 4 years.  But Hillary didn’t win. Trump did.

The Panic

Last weekend I sent out a letter suggesting things you might want to do to prepare for the chance that Hillary becomes the next President. I guess most of the thrust of the letter was suggesting that if you had ever wanted to own a firearm, now is the time to get it done. I then outlined a few things that you could look at.

Well I had NO idea the uproar that little suggestion created. I got no less than 67 Emails asking “what gun? What caliber? What ammo? Home defense or carry? Etc. etc. “  it went on and on. I was shocked in a way, but the realized that so many people really did understand how serious this is.  People are in a panic.

Have You Ever?
 
I’m not going to spend the entire commentary on the Presidential race, but I do have to ask the question...have you ever in your life seen the media so incredibly biased in your lifetime? I mean seriously folks, you can’t watch a single program without someone bringing up what they consider to be another Trump Gaffe. Even when Trump says something with no bad intent, it’s twisted to show him as a diabolical madman not capable to even run a kindergarten. I’ve never seen anything like it. If you thought there was the slightest inkling of honesty in reporting, or no bias...well, that’s shot to hell.

Good morning all, welcome to another day....

Doha didn't matter. Morgan Stanley didn't matter. Nothing seems to matter, the market simply goes up. Every day.

The Yellen Flip

There’s a lot of folks that actually think the Federal Reserve is somehow a Federal Agency. They are not. There are a lot of folks that think we need this non-elected band of criminal bankers.  We don’t.  There are even people that think the United States always had a central bank.  It didn’t.  But we’ve been stuck with one since 1913.

For any of you who would truly like to understand how the Federal Reserve came to be, the best place to start is a book called “The Creature from Jekyll Island”.  I highly recommend it.

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.

So after hearing how wonderful our economy is - according to Obama, today we see the DOW start the day down 300 points. Why? Well the big multinational corporations that rule the economy are having a hard time selling their "stuff'.  UTX missed, Micro-Soft missed, Proctor missed, CAT missed by a mile and reduced their outlook by lightyears. Then we got durable goods which they thought might come in with a rise of 0.3%, but unfortunately came in DOWN 3.2%.  Shall I go on?

Good morning all, it's Draghi Day and it has already become quite interesting.

Let's start at home....

In the 24 hours since Obama told everyone how wonderful he is, and how he single handedly saved the US from economic disaster, companies have announced the axing of over 32,000 workers. Let's consider Ebay for a minute. In the 4th quarter Ebay embarked on a 1.1 billion dollar stock buy back frenzy. Then yesterday they announced they'd be cutting 2,400 jobs.

Morning all, welcome to a new day.

The world is certainly a funny place right now. Overnight we saw PMI's come in below estimates from Europe to China, to Japan. That along with the fact that the Fed's minutes didn't contain any hints of keeping rates at zero for ever, or even the slightest mention of board members considering QE...has the futures a bit underwater. At 8 am we have the DOW off 60 and the S&P off 8.
