Poof. The Good Old Days Are Gone

Everyone I speak to feels as if we are living through special times. We are making history, in a very bad way, mind you. It’s not like “The Fly” to get all sentimental and shit; but I kind of miss the days of egregious excess, when people just ATM’d their houses and went long QUALCOMM, Inc. [[QCOM]] for shits and giggles.

Gone are the days of the cool new Motorola phone and it’s flamboyantly gay CEO.

Gone are the days when assholes went to Best Buy to purchase the new Garmin Ltd. [[GRMN]] device or better yet a TomTom.

Gone are the days when it was cool to buy Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. [[SIRI]] because Howard Stern was an employee. Or, better yet, buy XMSR, because their satellite shit was better.

Gone are the days of homebuilders acting like dot coms and dot coms accepting egregiously high take over bids (YHOO).

Gone are the days when soda stocks were cool: [[JSDA]] , Hansen Natural Corporation [[HANS]] , Cott Corporation (USA) [[COT]] , [[REED]] .

Gone are the days of stupid post 9/11 security stocks and asinine bomb detection companies.

Gone are the days of Apple Inc. [[AAPL]] and Research In Motion Limited (USA) [[RIMM]] dominating Jim Cramer’s Mad Money program and people getting all giddy over the iPod.

Gone are the days of storage plays like VMware, Inc. [[VMW]] or NetApp Inc. [[NTAP]] . All we do now is store warehouses full with worthless CDO’s.

Gone are the days of people in India eating 1 1/2 meals per day, effectively making Ag stocks skyrocket. Now, those fuckers are back to starving again.

Gone are the days when T. Boone Pickens was a successful money manager and oil was going to $1,000.

Gone are the days of absurd pricing power for the mineral and basic resource companies. Now they just suck.

Gone are the days of greedy private equity ballers and takeover specialists—buying companies for $100 billion out of thin air.

Gone are the days of endless Chinese industrialization. More importantly, gone is the notion that Chinese stocks can go up forever because they are surpassing the U.S. as King Cobra.

Gone are the days of cool euro’s. Now, the euro is some sort of bullshit 3rd world currency.

Gone are the days of lunatic seminar stocks like iMERGENT, Inc. [[iiG]] and pyramid plays, like USANA Health Sciences, Inc. [[USNA]] .

Gone are the days of making money off fat fuckers, via NutriSystem Inc. [[NTRI]] , Buffalo Wild Wings [[BWLD]] , Panera Bread Company [[PNRA]] and other restaurant names.

Gone are the days of powerful Wall Street brokerage firms, who could move a stock 10% on a morning upgrade. Now all we have is third tier bucket shops, like Oppenheimer Holdings Inc. (USA) [[OPY]] and Jefferies Group, Inc. [[JEF]] left.

Gone are the days of Mozilo and his kick ass tan. Add to that, his entire mortgage industry.

Gone are the days of BRIC.

Gone are the days when Carlos Slim from Mexico was the richest man in the world because his grotesque cellphone stock America Movil S.A.B de C.V. (ADR) [[AMX]] went up everyday.

Gone are the days of Google Inc. [[GOOG]] being cool. Now they’re just a bunch of dorks with a lot of free shit to give away.

Gone are the days of yoga and organic being “in.” Stocks like [[LULU]] and Whole Foods Market, Inc. [[WFMI]] can lick my dogs balls.

Gone are the days of “Jamba Juice” being a semi-cool place to buy a beverage.

Gone are the days of $200 jeans and $300 sunglasses, at least for Main Street. Now, all Main Street can afford is a pair of “Crocklers” from their local Walmart.

Feel free to add your own.

    And gone are the days when I could buy a stock and go for a workout in the middle of the day and have the stock not move 20% over the lunch hour.

    I dont think people are understanding the process. Now it goes to the House for their approval, then back to the Senate to approve if any amendments are added. This wasnt the big vote you dumb dumbs. I am not sure why you think stocks will shoot up tomorrow. Friday is back with the people that rejected it on Monday.

    Auto Industry broken (fuck this shoe hasn’t even dropped yet, of course 50 Billion to Detroit will seem like a drop in the the bucket) How would you like to own the paper on the Luxury SUV’s in America)
    Investment Industry broken with all of their bullshit etf’s Mutal Funds and the like. After Dot com and Banking bullshit the trust is gone.
    Health Care broken
    Mortgage Industry broken

    Gone are the days of thinking I was going to able to retire, silly me. Gone are the days when houses in my neighborhood actually sold instead of sitting there for years with a for sale sign.

    Futures are down. I think it’s a good sign that the bill passed the Senate though. If it passes the House I will be devoting a lot of time to reading the entire bill searching for every edge, idea or advantage I can find. There will be plenty of opportunities, for a start there were a lot of “green” provisions in the bill.

    RIP old style Wall Street. It may not seem like it, but we are a big part of the future for trading and investment — small groups on the Internet, decentralized control, pooling talent, sharing knowledge and trading their own funds.

    Remember those old Smith Barney commercials, we make money the old-fashioned way, we earn it? GONE.

    The lack of investment and delivery or even a plan for more energy isn’t gone.

    The need to figure out why this happened and how to improve things isn’t gone.

    Paulson, Bernanke, Cox and Bush aren’t gone.

    The need for another bailout after this one isn’t gone.

    Another egregiously brilliant posting.

    Gone are the days of arrogant sub-slime mortgage brokers driving stupidly expensive vehicles and buying up egregiously overvalued real estate because real estate only goes up. (I could name 1/2 dozen of these ghoatclowns that either just “short” sold their house or went into foreclosure on multiple properties. Poof, your bullshit six or seven ethereal mortgage blowjob has vanished and now you are struggling to make mid 5 figures when you could have had it all had you been more prudent with your bullshit vanished dollars.

    On a more serious note, my US Bank in Del Mar, CA was robbed yesterday just minutes before I arrived to make a deposit. I stopped by today and chatted with the nice but emotionally shaken bank manager asking her what actually happened. She told me 3 fuckfaces entered the bank in Friday the 13th Masks shooting mace in all directions and successfully split with bags of cash.

    I kid you not.

Really disappointed in McCain for the gamble, but I don’t think he could have imagined a governor could be this retarded. Of course, that’s why you vet them. I actually feel sorry for her.

    Just know a number of us picked up on your thoughts and care. Keep us updated.

    Me – my hedge fund informed me they are down 48% and funds frozen at Lehman.
    My old dog had to be put to sleep two weeks ago – (much harder to take than the hedge fund!)

    Cheer up, Fly – from the WSJ tonight:

    The latest wave of financial turmoil has crippled $27 billion London-based investment fund Sigma Finance Corp., raising concerns that a messy sale of its assets could weigh on wobbly markets.

    In a sign of the repercussions of last month’s demise of securities firm Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Sigma faced imminent liquidation Wednesday after a drop in the value of its investments, which included Lehman debt, forced it to default on its borrowing agreements.

    The default will likely leave investors in some $6 billion of Sigma’s own debt holding paper worth as little as 15 cents on the dollar, …

    Fiona,

    I share your pain on the hedge fund front. Not quite that steep a decline, but close.

    My dog, from the age of seven, had to be put down when I was 23 and away from home. My Dad, a decorated combat vet, took him to be put down and couldn’t talk about it for a year. Still hurts, but you remember all the good stuff, too.

    Funny, the stuff that’s really important over time.

    They cannot hurt us, for we have already lost our dogs.

    Here we come, fuckers.

    Gone are the days when we thought SBUX tasted good, and their growth would be endless

    Gone are clown shoes with holes, and CROX “croslite” innovations

    Gone is SHLD

    Gone is the moral foundation of our nation

    Gone are my iPod’s secret messages

    Gone, like yesterday is gone
    Like history is gone
    Just try and prove me wrong and
    pretend like you’re immortal.

    Gone, like yesterday is gone
    Like history is gone
    The world keeps spinning on
    You’re going, going
    Gone, like summer break is gone,
    Like Saturday is gone
    Just try and prove me wrong
    You pretend like you’re immortal (you’re immortal)
    You’re immortal (you’re immortal)

    We are not infinite
    We are not permanent
    Nothing is immediate
    We are so confident in our accomplishments.
    Look at our decadence.

    Gone, like Frank Sinatra, like Elvis and his mom,
    Like Al Pacino’s cash, nothing lasts in this life.
    My High School dreams are gone,
    my childhood streets are gone
    Life is a day that doesn’t last for long.

    Life is more than money, time was never money.
    Time was never cash, life is still more than girls.
    Life is more than hundred dollar bills and roto-tom fills.
    Life is more than fame and rock and roll and thrills,
    All the riches of the kings end up in wills
    We’ve got information in the information age
    but do we know what life is outside of our convenient Lexus cages?

    She said he said live like no tomorrow
    Every moment that we borrow brings us closer
    to the God who’s not short of cash
    Hey Bono, I’m glad you asked.
    Life is still worth living, Life is still worth living.

    Long solar/wind??

    I have a miniscule amount in an Alternative Energy Fund which was up 11% September – 118% YTD.
    My other good news fund is a hedge fund in water and water rights – almost doubled my money there so far- but have not heard the September results yet.

    I could sound brilliant here, but of course my largest position is in the well known, down 48%, assets frozen at Lehman one, which nicely takes care of any profits here and in the future!

    Zen, almost. As of recently, they put the US on lockdown, and it’s illegal for people to go outside of north america to look for jobs and in the process take all their money with them. You have to leave your money behind.
    Canada is okay, due to Nafta, and I would assume Mexico is too, but I haven’t looked into details.

    It could be because this nation is in much worse shape financially than people realize, but also, it’s quite possibly the process of a one world ogovernment, and global domination, but I won’t get into conspiracy theories.

    Suspects Sought in Del Mar Bank Robbery

    The three men are wanted for robbing the U.S. Bank on Via de la Valle Tuesday afternoon.
    Tuesday, September 30, 2008
    Police say three men in Halloween masks sprayed tellers with pepper spray during the robbery at the U.S. Bank on Via de la Valle in Del Mar Tuesday.
    The suspects were described as wearing dark-colored clothing and dark hooded sweatshirts, and left the scene in a beige or gold-colored car.
    At least one bank employee was taken to a hospital for treatment.

    The thieves entered the U.S. Bank branch office in the 2800 block of Via de la Valle about 4:30 p.m. and ordered employees into a vault, according to San Diego police.
    They fled with an undisclosed amount of money, possibly in a beige or gold Pontiac Grand Am.

    A witness said one of the robbers was carrying some sort of long, thin object, possibly a rifle or baton.

    Gone is the fun, with the money that I play
    Gone is capitalism, like the hair under my toupee

    From your mouth to God’s ears, Ms. Palin.

    The alternative is too horrible to contemplate.

    I understand that the House will pass the bailout due to a provision to include government cheese in exchange for the toxic assets.

    …gone is being considered regular people….now we are considered mainstreet.

    …gone is my ability to day trade because the clearing house is screwing up my transactions. gone are the days that I would consider that a mere glitch in the system.

    …gone are the days that a good credit score meant something. The circumstances for not paying your bills now are what? A bad credit score? I’m scared….it’s like using harsh language as a defense when someone has a bazooko pointed a your head.

    I figured this shit out. How could I be so stoopid?

    This is the same old central banker rape that’s been going on for centuries. Inflate, expand debt, then deflate and seize all the worthless assets, repeat again.

    The Goldman/Fed empire is on it’s biggest rape mission yet. Sure they’re milking Americans for what they have left, but they’re on a much bigger mission: kill the fucking Euro and screw China. Europe is in debt for generations, way worse than we are. Anyone making the Euro their reserve currency is crapping their pants in fear right now. This won’t stop until the Euro is defeated and Goldman hoovers up all the assets they sold to China for a humongous profit. Bailout happened when GS was looking into the abyss.
