The World is Off Balance

I get alarmed when things are going too well. Unfortunately, I am a bit paranoid in this regard and find it hard to restrain myself from thinking about worst case scenarios. I am well aware of how the Earth and water coexist with one another and how one person’s sin is another person’s sacrifice. Making money like this, well, it’s too easy. My comfort zone is one that is far more tedious and arduous for the soul to bear. Perhaps it was the way I was raised, dodging bullets, fending off knife attacks; but I prefer to face the abyss, just prior to dining at a three star Michelin eatery.

Having said that, I made myself oatmeal this morning. It’s been many months since my last bowl. After I poured the water into the ancient wooden bowl, I just sort of watched it getting cold. I found myself unable to enjoy the fruits of my labour [sic], even as little as eating a warm bowl of horse food. Instead, I ate it cold. I suffered through the cold horse food, in order to make a few hundred thousand dollars in personal gains this week. The world is off-balance and someone needs to set it straight.

As an aside, my monstrous sized mug of coffee is empty now, so I need to scurry along. I’m buying MOTR and SOL with vigor.

NEVER BET AGAINST THE GUY WHO WILL EAT COLD HORSE FOOD ON PURPOSE TO WIN IN THE STOCK MARKET. EVER.

        Try milk and I promise you’ll feel a lot better. Add a banana on top of the crap and you’ll love stocks and realize the world is a finally balanced mock Stradivarius. Then remember that Uncle Ben was sent to this world by God, to study hard and make stock traders extremely rich.

        Never forget that we are God’s Chosen few to make this world a better place.

      I loved it at 20, at 18 and at 14. At 12, I don’t love it too much. But I guess that’s the time to buy.

    Neighbor Fly. The Steve family and the Greenbaums and the Singh family have a Christmas day reservation at China Garden up the road. Let me know if you want me to bring some egg foo young back for you.

      Is this the Jewish Christmas tradition? Chinese food on Christmas day? I’ve heard of it before. In my family we go to a movie.

        Nice to hear from a fellow member of the Tribe. Because I have the beard I dye it white on Christmas Eve Day, dress like Santa, and pass out candy canes and small presents to the sick children in the local hospital.
        This year I am also going to pass out one year subscriptions to the PPT, that Fly gave me, to the homeless at the shelter and maybe they too can bank coin in 2011. That Fly. Such a mensch.

    Having left said eatery, it will be wise to reserve time at a way stop to expel the egregious results of the dining fiasco. A rice paddy is always a noble ambition for such deposits. May terabites of solar wafers aid in the decomposition process.

    Mr Fly,
    I’m here to help you out, because you seem to be embarrassing yourself with your wine twits. A gentleman as yourself, who is well versed in the ways of mahogany and everything non-burlap, should never be caught drinking sparkling “moscato” or promoting ridiculous Australian fad wines with animals on the labels (or Australian wines in general, aside from Grange). No, a space alien magician should only be found drinking Bordeaux classified growths, Rhone Wines, great Champagne and the top domestics. If you’d like to impress your peers, hunt out some grower Champagne, Barolo or nicely aged German/ Austrian Rieslings. You’re also drinking your Bordeaux about 5-10 years too early on average.

    maybe it’s because you are a capitalist at heart and what we have now is just plain old socialism. socialism for wall st and the federal workers pension system via a higher market… we are the ones on welfare, not the poor.

      fuckin amen rookie,they gut the middle class,then turn around and tell you that EVERYTHING is great. even to the point asshole doug kass is pitching his shtick that gold will dump 25%. so who do you believe, goldman saying that it goes 1750,and then retraces back to 1650. kass and goldman both suck. stocking stuffers for this year, buy your kids some silver coins,make them collect them as if they were baseball cards and candy.and when they get old enough they can spit on the squid, and on kass’ grave. fucking douchebags .they spend 10 hours in front of a mirror that their mommy dressed them in front of, only to spend 30 seconds on cnbc.

    Noble of you to suffer for the sins of this earth, el Fly.

    Early in 2010 I posited that things were looking very much like 2004. I went back to revisit my thesis, which i more or less didn’t stick to, and found that it was, indeed, pretty spot on.

    The important thing to note is that the market sold off rather viciously at the very conclusion of 2004. Not in late January. Not even in mid-January. On the very first week of January, the dirty business of fleecing folks by a few % points was done.

    I shall position for that outcome this year, or at least protect against it.

    “Labour; chequemated.” Classique M. Le Fly. First Growth, where are these places you speak of, with their funny names? Me drinks $ 2 Buck Chuck and likey the Kangaroo. No, but really, Washington’s Rieslings shall “invade” your memory and can reach out and “touch” you all over TSA-Homeland-Security-Napolitano-style. Oregonian Pinot will steal your vote Atty. Gnl. Holder style. But it’s a fine Gruet Champagne from New Mexico that will have you “bowin” your head Obama (BowWow) style while he’s on another vacation “without knowing the facts.”
