RE With the Ruble cut in half what’s the difference?  People are losing jobs for one, people with bills to pay and car payments. Ruble in half everything they buy has went up in price.  People wanting to start business being put on hold. Less revenue puts stress on social programs. They are also having a hard time buying anything in any other country because of the currency instability which also hurts businesses.

It’s so cold and getting colder in New England.  Wish I could turn back the pages of time and be riding in the KGMB newscar with my friend Ray Mews. Cruising down Queen St with the police scanner on waiting to spring into action.


This 5 minute clip explains pretty well what is going down presently.

The cloak of invisibility

Cloak of Invisibility? Al-Qaeda adapting to avoid US drone attacks

Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) has produced a video to teach fighters how to avoid detection by US Predator drones by making them invisible to the spy planes with a Harry Potter-style cloak.

The 16-minute video, called ‘Combatting Spy Airplanes,’ is slapped together and makes use of US military public relations videos – many of which are on open display in the media – to make its point, the Washington Times reports.

The video explains that a homemade shield or cloak can stop a Predator’s infrared cameras from detecting a human’s heat signature.

The makings of the heat shield resemble craft-time in a primary school classroom. First of all, a body-sized tarpaulin is spread out on the floor and smeared with glue. Then some aluminum foil, which anyone can buy in a supermarket, is pressed on. Add more glue and another tarpaulin to make a kind of aluminum foil body burger.

“The aluminum is supposed to act like a heat barrier, keeping the fighter’s body heat from being detected by the drone camera system,” according to an analysis by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

Whether this aluminum sandwich actually works or not is unclear, but the idea is simple enough: if the drone can’t see you, then it can’t blow you to bits with one of its Hellfire missiles.

It might be Gold demand from India.  They love gold… and everyone rides the train!

I laughed so hard I almost barfed, too!  🙂

That’s a classic satire on par with the one that baked the Pilsbury Doughboy to death.  (Yeah, I’m sick.)

Financial war against Vlad resumes

Posted by Maddog @ 16:41 on January 6, 2015  

I hold no candle for Vlad, but this financial war shows just how rigged the mkts are.

China has backstopped Russia, so bidding Russian CDS’s through the roof etc, is insane, unless you only want to attack Russia, without any fear of loss, because you will not make money with China there and note these moves all occurred in US time !!!!


Obama admits falling oil prices aimed at weakening Russian economy

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 16:23 on January 6, 2015  

I do NOT believe that info at all. If the Ruble is low it should help their exporter businesses. And limit imports. Make imports expensive as if a tax on imports to locals. With Oil cut in half, and ruble cut in half, what’s the difference?


Gold well up, Oil below 48 and still the PM stox sellers

Posted by Maddog @ 16:03 on January 6, 2015  

sell in monster Vol…….the Rig continues.

Today I have no problem continuing to hold this one which has been in our portfolio for a very long time.

The general crap had a lot of momentum and cheer leading from CNBC and carrying the trend too far. Auto sales, real estate, retail, and general stock hoopla must be reversing.

Gold shouldn’t be having trouble with $1220. Yesterday it was 1210. We shouldn’t meet such resistance every $10 higher.

Hoping the shares are signaling your run to $1400-1500 but I don’t know.

I thought that’s what they do 24/7

The no manipulation crowd always says “then why is gold up today?”

Posted by Richard640 @ 13:00 on January 6, 2015  

Take today for instance…and it’s like this ALMOST every time–gold started to break out earlier…but then it hit a brick wall and that’s it for the rest of the day-this pattern repeats too much to just be normal mkt forces–so gold has been put to bed–but that it is up at all…and resilient as it is,  needs to be seen as a victory–i think we’re in a 22 outs 25 day run up to 1400 or 1500

Copy that, noted, thanks. Keep in mind, the ones I have give 65 hours run time versus 4 hours. The AAs are cheap too.

Obama: Illegal Immigration Hurts ‘Blue-Collar Americans …

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 12:41 on January 6, 2015  


President Barack Obama once declared that an influx of illegal immigrants will harm “the wages of blue-collar Americans” and “put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”

“[T]here’s no denying that many blacks share the same anxieties as many whites about the wave of illegal immigration flooding our Southern border—a sense that what’s happening now is fundamentally different from what has gone on before,” then-Senator Obama wrote in his 2006 autobiography, “The Audacity of Hope: Thoughts on Reclaiming the American Dream.”

”Not all these fears are irrational,” he wrote.

“The number of immigrants added to the labor force every year is of a magnitude not seen in this country for over a century,” Obama noted. “If this huge influx of mostly low-skill workers provides some benefits to the economy as a whole—especially by keeping our workforce young, in contrast to an increasingly geriatric Europe and Japan—it also threatens to depress further the wages of blue-collar Americans and put strains on an already overburdened safety net.”

If these feel like the words of one of Obama’s opponents, it’s because they’re the exact argument the president’s critics have been making as he now rushes to announce a sweeping executive order that would give work permits to millions of illegal immigrants in the country.

Copy on that Wanka. Occasionally we get blasted up here too. During Sandy FYI, I bought 6 of these flashlights about $5 each. AA bats last forever, far better than candles. On shelf pointed up at ceiling. I had a problem with one, called the 800 number, told to push down on bat. comp. and it was fine.
