Better pump out more fiat to keep the charade going a bit longer. Tapering, my foot.
Grump 1/25/2014 7:07:49 AM Report

Good morning everyone, time for the upright folks to rise and shine, time for the swampers to slither out from under their lily pad. Hunter 101, yesterday both Bounder and yourself were trying to outdo Steely. Bounder couldn't dumb down enough but you my friend may just crack it. You too are rude, crude and unattractive and obviously have been a longtime dumb red neck. Congratulations pal you are a WINNER. Have a great day all.
Grump 1/25/2014 7:14:44 AM Report

Good morning Spelly, you're up early this A.M. Hey Wisen got any hot stock tips today. LMAO

Relative to yesterdays storm:

Graders should be out continually on all main streets. Snow banks should be cleared daily if necessary on the main arterial routes. Drivers need to accept that there are now only one and half lanes...not two and quit trying to squeeze by
flyhawk25 1/25/2014 8:00:25 AM Report

Enough is enough.Yesterday was the snow that broke my optimism.
It is never going to get warm and there will be no spring.We'll simply go to the monsoon season and flies.
A friend of mine is leaving for Florida for two months and I begged him to put me in his luggage.I even bought Depends for the ride in storage. Nope.
I am stuck here.
Some friend.

according to the weather network it rained on this date 10 of the last 10 years! guess we are going to break the run today.

Fly what's going on up there. I hear it's a tad wintry.
Grunt, it's called a much needed pull back. Gets rid of some of the froth. Sets up for the next up leg.

Spelly, the war on poverty can't be won by printing U.S. dollars...people need to work...why not put import taxes on Chinese goods, and any country which has cheap child labour?
soowat 1/25/2014 9:33:02 AM Report

Yesterday my son received a letter from the student loan people. The letter advised him that they were going green and they would not mail him the T (Something) form that he needed for income tax. He would have to go on line and print out the information. Since he works as an IT person doing this is not an issue,but we kind of looked at each other and asked why they didn't send the dang form instead of a letter advising that they weren't going to send it. Only the government....
old-cat33 1/25/2014 10:31:18 AM Report

Well people my Craftsmaen 28" cut snowblower is broke and I have nowhere to push the snow with my 4-wheeler?
One of my hockey buddies who is a lawyer says "It don't matter how much snow falls on your property it's your problem"and you can't push it or snow blow it on your neigbours or city property...LOL.
Grump 1/25/2014 10:35:46 AM Report

Wisen , nice try moron bur since when do you buy high and then sit out a re-adjustment in the market. B.S. doesn't baffle brains. If you were any kind of a player you would have known (as you say) that the froth was coming off the top. Run along and find someone as dumb as yourself who will believe your fairy tales.

For consolation, allow me to tell you what one of my Jewish friends replied when asked what was good about Canada’s cold snowy winters:

"If you were any kind of player you would have known"

Geez Grump...are you the kind of player that knows what is going to happen on a daily basis?

If so let me know now what will happen next week and I will load up..long or short.. then split the profits with you.
flyhawk25 1/25/2014 12:12:12 PM Report

Wisen...just keep playing and let Grunt do what he does.
Why anyone would text on a golf course is beyond me.
soowat 1/25/2014 12:30:49 PM Report

Do you think that maybe Wisen is actually sitting in a basement in Goulais,looking at pictures and making the Florida story up as he goes along? That explains why he can send messages while on the "Golf course"
steelworker 1/25/2014 12:41:28 PM Report

Believe it or not some of us can actually walk and chew gum at the same time. I just received a text from a friend in Punta Cana as she's swimming in the resort pool. ( I hate the woman lol)
Spellchecker 1/25/2014 12:59:10 PM Report

Zing, that's why I called it a charade and that there will be no substantial tapering. Why not take the advice given in the latter part of the article? The reason they won't is because it would cause short-term pain and it is too late anyway. They'll do what governments always do when in trouble. They'll inflate the currency until it all crashes down around us like every fiat currency has done throughout history.
Spellchecker 1/25/2014 1:00:31 PM Report

Grump 1/25/2014 1:16:38 PM Report

Sparks 7 , I wouldn't even pretend to advise someone on the market even though I have been in it for roughly 50 years. Enough that I can smell B.S. a mile away. I have a good adviser I have been using for 30 plus years and they make it their business to know what the market will do. If you would care for an introduction I would be happy to do that for you. The first rule is buy low, sell high, not as Wisen suggests, buy high and sit out a correction so you can end up poorer.
steelworker 1/25/2014 1:17:22 PM Report

soowat: maybe you want Wisen to send you a picture of himself in a thong?

I just took the ashpan out to dump. that temp has dropped like a brick from this morning when i was out blowing snow for myself and neighbour. It, the wind has gone to the NorEast out here and is increasing, when I was out first there was no wind worth mentioning and the temp was just over minus 6C, now according to my weather stn it is minus 18C and the wind speed is 33km and it is starting to snow .... AGAIN.. I think sunwing will be getting a couple more customers at this rate...
Oldie Goldie 1/25/2014 4:15:17 PM Report

Now Harper is concerned about the problems in Ukraine. Will his world-wide concerns never end.
It is about time he became concerned about Canada's problems .

He has had Parliament shut down more days in the last year than it has been open.

He is the Prime Minister of Canada and he is acting like the President of the U.S.A.---getting involved in everybody else's problems while ignoring his own.

I believe Parliament is supposed to open next week--unless Harper decides to prorogue again.

Canada is not big enough nor rich enough to take on the problems of other countries.
Retreaded 1/25/2014 4:21:17 PM Report

Harper has to doubt about it, I would like to see those millions applied to Canadian needs.
shakespeare 1/25/2014 4:32:15 PM Report

My daughter says it's +11C in Calgary today.
I don't think I've ever had as much snow to blow in one session as I did today. I hadn't touched the deck all winter so it was waist deep and I was getting to feel a little claustrophobic inside our family room, so I tackled that too. The drag is I love to cross-country ski, but it's too damn cold so often.
Two and a half weeks and then it's a month in Kauai on the oceanfront. And no Wisen, I won't be posting from the beach or the golf course, nor will I expect any sympathy over the exchange rate.
irishfey 1/25/2014 4:45:16 PM Report

Nice posting today, i guess being snowbound gives a folk time to reflect on our problems and not those of the world... If anyone is bored, i can post some things from the Bible concerning End Times and Snow.. anyone ?? ,lol,lol... JUST KIDDING!!!!!!

Don't let them scare you off irishfey. I've been known as the resident thumper here, and nanag, if I take a notion to thump I will do so whether you like it or not. I realize it will be subject to heavy disdain from some but that is to be expected and I'm used to it.

Spellchecker... hope you know by now that not too much scares me off and if i have some " thumping " i want to do, i will . Thank you for your support though. Remember that verse about " casting your pearls"?... Sometimes i just get so tired of doing that and all it causes is some folk to curse God and i feel like they are in enough trouble already so why give them more rope to hang themselves , I imagine that the "thumping " is not finished and it"s not always us that starts it so if the occasion arises i know we will be back on at some point in time.. just not tonight,lol... Take care and God bless....

I was reading about that poor british subject in Pakistan. He's a pathological with a personality disorder and went around proclaiming to be the prophet Mahamood. Holy smokes, the holy religious police check on his spelling and he landed in jail.

The court just sentenced him to dead, I don't know how they will execute him, but he was sentenced to death for proclaiming to be the prophet.

For a threesome sakes, he's a 70 year old man, Mohammad Asghar, let him go.

You see status, what's the difference between those tweets in Pakistan and the persistence, arrogance and petulance of some people around here.

Sault Ste. Marie should be declared a Caliphate. Then we'll never had this conversation.

My apologies..I meant cassesttes, not to be confused with 8track tapes, although the cassettes have tape in them. However I still have a lot of albums on vinyl, which I hear is making a comeback. I am not much into CD's though, I guess my road is a little too bumpy for them, or the player is not of good quality in the vans...

You see, no one thanks me for the inside info I volunteer in this site.

I told everyone, six months in advance that gold and silver was gonna go down around september last year, 2013, that's.

Now I have another one, if you own gold, wait for about six months to sale it. It's gonna pick at 16 hundred, and then the decline will start and will go down for the next six years.

And, Status, take a copy of this message and hang it on your fridge door. It says like this: In the next six years, we're gonna see gold going down to $ 250 an ounce.

If you want, I can sign it for you.

Silver goes down also.

Why? Well, if you ask why, you do not deserve the info.

I was in Saudi when they had the raid on Mecca. in spite of no Christians allowed in Mecca ,it was French paratroopers that took them out. I know this because I had friends at the Hospitals who were suddenly filling up with French Military wounded from underneath. This would be prophet was from the East coast of Saudi where I had a hoe and an operator working near by. When the raid was over they took gunships in and when nothing was left moving ,they brought in dozers and flattened the place like there had never been anything there. Islamic justice is a bit brutal but very effective. Telling anyone over there that you are the Prophet can pretty much guarantee a death sentence.
