January 20, 2001....President Bush takes office.

Here's a pretty concise history of the index..going back to its beginnings.

1. I'm going long myself
Georgie boy is going want to either leave with things doing pretty good marketwise at this point if he could get it up to 13,000 and keep it there for a while or show the Nation that he's pissed off at them and let the economy slide. I actually have a little respect for the boy wonder, he made himself the boss and I think at that level he has that kind of power. Lots of people working in and for the military, gas stockpiles at their highest in the country. $4/gal is the norm in Canuckistan as one person so eloquently put it. Stop buying stocks that buy oil and the price will come down but most people don't know that. The people I know anyway. My crystal ball tells me Dow around 13,000 for the last 3 months of the boy wonder and gas prices about $2.63 in New Jersey where they pump it for you.

3. Yep...even if it's a Potemkin Village situation, where the propping up is all
fake and it falls apart shortly thereafter...at least he gets away without any of it splashing on him!

2. There Won't Be Any Dow By Then
W will have destroyed the economy entirely. We'll be living on barter.

Mission accomplished!

6. Twelve five, maybe thirteen.
There will be a bounce on the day of the announcement that a Democrat has won. That will be world wide of course. Concurrent with the announcement there will be a major drop in the price of oil too.
