71. Morning Marketeers....
:donut: and lurkers. If this were a Tarzan Movie-I would say that the jungle drums are getting louder and the natives are restless. I have been on this board for at least 6 years and on this thread for at least 4 years. ANYONE AND EVERYONE that I thought had any economics 'smarts' have railed against derivatives since their inception. So A non economics person has known about this or figured this out at least 4 years ahead of these 'Masters of the Universe'. What a croc.

If Obama doesn't start reading the tea leaves soon-he will be in trouble. The whole election was a populist revolt against Bush in particular and cronyism and favoritism in general.

It wasn't about Obama-he just was able to take advantage of the wave. However, he needs to remember he was riding the wave-not controlling it. We have had revolts in the far distant past-but I would get too comfortable if I were some of these folks. More and more folks will wind up in the 'shrub-burbs' as folks lose their jobs and this Depression lengthens and deepens.

Happy hunting and watch out for the bears. See you on the practice range.
