This is your Cock-A-Doodle-Doo moment


At 9AM Monday morning (8/17) the Dow was at 17,358 and the greedy, wealthy lil piggies were so happy..

And the super-wealthy oink-oinks were even happier by the close of Tuesday the 18th when it had risen to 17,511 meaning even more profit and good times for the well to do..

Now its the end of trading, Friday afternoon the 21st of August..

And the Dow has closed at 16,459, a loss of over 1,000 pts in three trading days..

Now its us, the Ants & the Grasshoppers who are cracking the smile as we nod and express, "1,000 pt drop..  Not a bad Start.."
Maybe the Dow will spike back up on Monday..  Or not..

Maybe it will continue to drop as more get their heads out of the sand (or their asses) and STOP believing in an economic 'recovery' that does not exist because this Rotten Lying Bastard President Oreo and the Republican Congressional Cry-baby Cowards never jointly nor independently implemented one!!

If you want to know what the REAL figure for the Dow would be based on the REAL macroeconomic figures on unemployment, housing, consumer spending, debt to savings ratios and all the complicated algorithms that economists decipher..
Well its not 17.5K..  

Not even 16.4K..

The Dow should be around the  9,300 to 9,900 range and yes, that's based on nearly 7 years since 2008

Because what really has been done under the proverbial economic 'hood'?

Everyone's just been told all is well so often and so intensely that you appear like a loony-loon to dare think or express otherwise.
And then there's all the mindless social distractions from marriage rights to the CSA flag to 'blacklivesmatter' bullshit..

Belief is a powerful weapon of government..

It is what is used via propaganda to keep leaders and parties in power; keep people fighting and morally supporting losing wars and unwinnable quagmires

It is why the deeply poor still possess hope and the very wealthy can flaunt their extravagance without the guilt which pervaded 2009-10.
If you BELIEVE the long "line" of improvement either is moving or is about to move, then you will continue to stand in line patiently; endlessly like a moron and maybe at worse just vent to people around you.

Without that belief, you become aggressive, uncontrollable or simply stop standing in the line..

Compare how you feel standing at the back of a slowly moving checkout line vs one where the light is blinking because someone is looking up the price of a can of peas...
Better start waking up..   Nothing was fixed..

No one in last 7 years in a position to was really motivated to.. All hot-potato passed to the evil Fed

And since the squeaky wheel gets the grease and the people never collectively 'squeaked'..   Well..

Rise n' Shine lil' Sleepy-Pusses

This is your Cock-a-doodle-Doo Moment.
