Boy, did I ever hit that one right. Oil hits $127 a bbl, market drops 400 pts over the week (down 110 right now), Citibank in the shitter, another great week of short selling. Think I'll by a catamaran to go with my new gulf-front house.

How to really make money in the market:
Nov 2002: bought Apple, $80 a share
Nov 26: sold Apple, $193 a share
Jan 30: bought Apple $110 a share
May 9: Apple at $183 while the rest of the market is in the tank. Sell a 100 shares and buy a boat.

Current advise: Short refiners. Buy more Google and Apple. Dollar will continue to fall as oil continues to rise. As people pawn their TVs and stereos, they will be spending more time on the Internet trying to buy food cheaper, and listening to their iPod as they bicycle to work, that is, if they have a job.

Stay away from indexes.

Euro edges higher against dollar on ECB talk - May. 9, 2008

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Greenspan got us into this mess.

I have only one thing to say to your rosy thinking, and you better get ready for it: $200 a bbl oil. Wait till Bubba sees what it is going to take to fill up his pickup at $8 a gallon.

Hey Jay......how much you pay for a gallon in KC? I am sure you can't wait to see gas hits $6 a gallon base on your bullshit. You are going to tell us you are rich beyond imaginations, right?

You are off-message. I'm telling your handlers.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and thatís what I intend to reverse.
