Sorry But Must Blog Again Gustav Readers Are Scared By Reported Record Winds - 08/31/08 09:28 PM
Gustav's record 212 mph winds occured around Cuba. It was a category 4 then and after passing Cuba it dropped unexpectedly to 3 even as it followed the warmest gulf waters. We suspect that the US Airforce seeded the hurricane to interfere with its vortex. So calm down the hurricane is not now pumping 212 mph winds as it moves into Louisiana. You probably won't hear anything about messing with mother nature. The last time they did it WE THINK it screwed up weather patterns all the way in Asia causing a devastating storm in Japan.

GUSTAV The Sunspots Had Better Come Out Tomorrow Or It's The End Of Civilization - 08/31/08 07:36 PM
Gustav has proven the catastrophic effects from global warming clashing with the solar cycle Ice Age. Gustav set a new hurricane wind record at 212 mph. That's a tornado classification. What tornados are a mile wide or more. How about a 175 mile wide tornado coming to a theatre nearest you. Global warming is not about to go away soon, so the sun had better start popping out sunspots pretty damn quick. See previous blog for more detailed information. (8 comments)
GUSTAV Clash Of Titans - Global Warming vs. Solar Cycle Iceage - 08/30/08 09:46 PM
Our initial blog (july 1, 2008) two solar cycles in progress at the same time. Solar Cycle 24 has begun , but Solar Cycle 23 has not ended. Solar Cycle 23 will fade away and cycle 24 MAY begin a new solar cycle ice age (no sunspot activity)...global warming vs solar cycle ice age = IOWA FLOODING...offshore oil rigs will be wiped off the face of the earth...UPDATE: GUSTAV...8/31/2008 The sun has been blank of sunspots for at least 40 days according to the NOAA sunspot numbers...anything over category 5 hurricane would fall into tornado classifications. There has been some confirmation (2 comments)
Obama-Biden Bumper Sticker Seen On Martian Spacecraft - 08/23/08 08:51 PM
Well Joe Biden in his intro speech now as Obama's VP pretty much defined the bleak financial situation the US is now in which was almost Martian blog verbatim. What does a politician say when there is no solution. I think he said nothing or maybe something like we can do it. Do what ? The choices are hyper-inflation to wipe out all the trillions of the United States debt or actual default. By the way, the global financial meltdown may not wait for after the November election. One of the top minds in these matters is starting to scream again. (3 comments)
US Treasury Halts Delivery Of American Eagle Gold Coins - Active Rain GOT'EM - 08/21/08 02:02 PM
We are glad to be of service to the Active Rain community. As you may know, our blogs have been pointing the merits of owning gold and silver during such perilous economic times. We also pointed out that because of failures in the banking and stock brokerages that only gold that you can touch is gold. Do not buy paper gold! This includes even the new trusts that have been started that in fact store actual gold in their vault. If there is an agent between you and your gold, you probably don't own gold. Some sources to buy gold and (2 comments)
It's Time To Buy A House, But Only If You Put A Hedge Around It. - 08/18/08 12:31 PM
Inflation is expected to reach double digits soon. Homes have been a great hedge against inflation, but only if inflation stays within a certain channel. That channel is now busted and the cost of living matches or exceeds any gains from real estate. I think we were featured when we published the prophetic blog stating that houses will probably loose half their value. We pointed out the japanese real estate experience. So here we are, yes in some areas homes have lost even over half their value, but most sections of the country price declines have been muted but painful. If (0 comments)
Milltown USA - Company Owned Housing And Script For Money - 08/14/08 08:29 AM
We have just read the gruesome forclosure statistics and it's back to the future. There is talk that fannie and freddie may rent out inventory housing and foreign investors or country sovereign funds may also invest in foreclosed properties and converting them to rentals. The payback of such a plan appears to be good to very good. The Russian invasion of Georgia does indeed mark a new reduced chapter for the US military. No longer will they have their once omni potent status. We understand that plans are being made to provide a new support mechanism for the US dollar. There (1 comments)
US Dollar Will Be No More... - 08/12/08 11:14 PM
The US suffers from atrocious deficits so large that they will never be repaid. The only prop has been the US military which has been submitted to many blunders under the Bush administration. 911 seems to be the baited trap in the sense that all the Bush military expeditions have been in historically losing propositions. I guess its arrogance, but we sensed trap right from the beginning. The relatively harmless passenger plane plane crash into the pentagon sent the signal that the the only prop for the US dollar was military extortion. Well the Russians believe that the flotilla along side (6 comments)
Cuban Missile Crisis And Second Holocaust All Wrapped Up Into One - 08/10/08 08:57 AM
The US decided to place missiles in eastern europe certainly against Russia's wishes. That would be crossing "the red line" number one. Russia seems to be preparing a many facet response one being reinstating cuban relations and using the island for their strategic bombers refueling. From the US response that would be crossing "the red line" number two. Another russian position that is currently underway is the use of military diplomacy that has been dormant for over a decade. The second holocaust talked about by Israelis now comes into play in earnest. The severity of the us-russian standoff now places it (2 comments)

Optimistic Pooper Scooper - The Litter Box Is Half Full - It's A turn For The Worse - 08/02/08 08:08 PM
The economy has taken a turn for the worse with workers hours the lowest since records began in 1964. The projection is 300,000+ jobs gone or switched to finger nail part time employment. It now becomes obvious why congress had no problem with passing the greatest monetary infusion since the last great depression. My wife is on the QE II and I'm suppose to add more litter in 5 days and the cat eats two large cans of Frisky's every day. It never gains weight maybe I should do it on the fourth day. (1 comments)
