    Few issues

    1) All my friends who are in same office cannot cast vote as they are behind proxy πŸ™‚

    2) I hope votes from everywhere in the world are considered same. I just spammed the hell out of my friends..to make them vote and bookmark this site

    Yeah let’s see the market rally on this Fannie Mae loss.
    Says 2009 losses will be wider than 2008.

    Egregious moderation to begin after the close of the stock market today… errr… after my dentist appointment after the close of the stock market today.

    I will be offering official endorsement news and a couple of meaningful interviews with some of the “graybeards” on the site, namely Jake Gint and Tradercaddy.

    Until then, vote often and remember, “going negative” is often a successful strategy.

    Ann Coulter adds on this blog???!!!! Ohhh….the humanity…the horror!

    BTW – longs will get their faces ripped off with the egregious losses experienced in the financials. That sounds like a size 11.5, steel tipped falling. Heaven help all of us recent longs. Only thing we can hope for is the Naz futures holding this bottom at the open, otherwise…..

    Socialists — don’t get your breastsusses in a wringer.

    Coulter is just a female version of the Fly, albeit far more political. If you read her as being “over the top” humorous, ala “the Fly,” you will not stroke out your little commie tickers in such an egregious manner.

    Think of her as a RW Bill Mahr, except funnier.

    I was at a rodeo several years ago in Wyoming and one of the horses went down. They put the horse on some kind of a tarp, pulled it behind a tractor and took it out to some shed about 500 yards from the stands. A couple of minutes later we all heard a couple of shots. It sucked but the horse was in obvious pain.

    BEAS, shut up. I’m noticing something peculiar… whenever you post you get 2 stars, whenever alpha posts he gets 5 stars… yet somehow you get 50 votes?
    I call BS on you my friend, cheaters may win sometimes, but it won’t happen this time… Fly won’t allow it… not because of a conspiracy, but because he’s stopping you from your conspiring… Besides, you just violated the rules
    5. Never question the legitimacy of Ò€œThe Fly.Ò€
    Perhaps he’ll interpret it a different way, but by yelling of a Fly conspiracy, when you yourself are obviously conspiring to win, probably won’t fly (no pun intended)

    Ann Coulter is a dirty rotten no good evil mouthed disingenuous bitch. And that’s the first bad word I’ve er used on this site. It would have been worse, except for the new rules and all. Although bad words, certainly the more f-bombs the better, are not only acceptable, but encouraged. Odd, no?

    At any rate, someone should find out what that woman eats, and then go out and kill it–all of it.

  47. POT To $300

    It’s fucktarded to be short a stock that is experiencing unit volume growth, astronomical pricing power, and the supply response at least 2 years away. The analysts have consistently underestimated POT earnings and they will continue to do so.

    It’s not in the following link, but there’s another story circulating that a Belarus fertilizer company inked deals with China for potash at $1000/tonne….about 5x the amount it sold for 2 years ago.

    From MarketWatch:

    —————————————————————–
    Record crude fueling bears

    U.S. stocks drop on as record high crude undercuts equities with more bearish sentiment from poor results from Fannie Mae.
    —————————————————————–

    The headline says it all about the bears with todays market action. The bears had no fuel from the start of this “bear” market.
