In The News – Tuesday, September 23rd Edition
Wow! Talk about pulling a Johnny Paycheck! Take this job and shove it! I ain’t working here no more.
Sounds like some Theravada Buddhist Monks in
Thailand have been partying hard. Meth Monks arrested for smoking “ice” in Pagoda
I suggested the new iPhone 6 and 6+ would be
huge and the initial evidence bears this out. Sales top 10 million in first weekend. A magic profit machine?
I’ve been commenting on the record grain crops. Farmers face falling prices and a logistical
nightmare getting crops to market.
Anyone who has known or read my musings for any
length of time knows that I consider
intellectual heavyweight Al Gore
either a total fake or a stupendous idiot or some combination of the two. I find
I’m in good company. Dennis Gartman had this comment in yesterday’s Gartman
“HOW WRONG CAN ONE MAN BE: We are wrong a lot in our business, but as
we’ve said time after time after time, there
is nothing wrong with being wrong in what we
do; the problem is being wrong and remaining
wrong, and Al Gore is wrong… and he remains wrong.
We say this in light of having come across an interesting
bit of data recently: that from 1920 through 1949
on average 433,000 people died each year globally from “extreme
weather.” That’s fallen to 27,500 per year recently according to the
International Policy Network, due to better communications; due to better
construction of buildings; due to better roads… better health care and due,
despite Mr. Gore’s predictions, to demonstrably milder weather. We live in an
age of stunningly mild weather. That’s a fact and it is irrefutable. Imagine
then that this “death figure” has fallen by nearly 95%... at a time when Al
Gore would have us believe that the world’s weather had become more hostile and
the concerns over “extreme weather” have become more severe. How stunningly wrong can one
man be? And how can he remain so wrong… and how in God’s name did he receive not only a Nobel
Prize, but an Oscar too? We stand in awe, dumbstruck.”
The Kurds have figured out how to make the ISIS
heathens cut and run. Play on their fear of losing out on their 72 virgins if they are killed by a woman. Brilliant!
Something tells me this ad campaign might elicit some comments.
Hmmm. No this is a tough one.
Okay. Enough angry posts for one day. Try this if you
want to either be known as the neighborhood geek or you haven’t run into enough
Okay, here’s the set-up. You just got pulled
over by the gendarmes and they found several kilos of cocaine in your car. Your excuse is that you were taking the car
in for its annual check-up as a favor to the owner, a 91 year-old Venezuelan
Roman Catholic Cardinal from the Holy See. Know the cops really bought into
Well, there goes one of the world’s great fortunes.
