    Re(1): "Hezbollah’s Challenge", The Belmont Club, John Fernandez

    Red Lines crossed, need to spend assets locally...

    The President was never prepared to be tough, only sound tough. He cut the military’s budget. Locked the ground forces away in Afghanistan. He left himself without a gun in a machine-gun fight. So what was he doing drawing ‘Red Lines’?
    Fernandez asks the right question regarding our forces stationed in the action theater.

    Why are they in a land locked peripheral failed state. They cannot be moved. They are locked in place. They are as ineffective as our troops in Germany.

    But, tomorrow is looking to be more significant...

    If this is Israel's initial strike toward taking an eastern airfield from Syria to bomb Iran's nuke facilities than my 30% move back into equities wasn't such a good idea. Yowser. It felt like there were Black Swans alight - and there were. Now, I just have to wait it out. But, I still have 40% sitting in cash that I could sorta DCA in with...

    Maybe...

    It will blow over if the Israelis are just bombing Hezbollah. I mean, who cares if Hezbollah freedom fighters get wiped out. Better for the civilized world. Maybe some yelling and screaming - and some behind-the-scenes backslapping. I don't think violence in Syria will move the market. There is violence in Syria.

    If, however, Israel takes an eastern airfield all bets are off. They can handle Iran from there and thanks to our Black Swan President we can honestly portray America as impotent. I mean, we no longer have any air assets (planes or anti-aircraft batteries) in the region. Because we bailed from Iraq, Israel could take an airfield in eastern Syria and launch sorties right over the northern region of Iraq and right to the nuclear sites in Iran. There might be another Nobel Peace Prize for President Obama in the near future. But, that would freak the market.

    Hey, look at that one in the top, right corner...
    SyrianAirfields.JPG
    Nice, very nice... And, that border in the top, right is the Turkey/Iraq border... About 100 km to the east is Iran... And, now we don't have to have Turkey and Iraq playing stupid games. Just overfly defenseless Iraq. Nice plan Bama

    A Black Swan could have taken flight...

    Extraordinary, or just ordinary

    Too bad our safe investment option is limited to a fund where the Treasury monetizes borrowed money. And, when it is done every year - and on a known schedule - is it really extraordinary.

    Beware. The safest place to be just might be anywhere the bad debtor with champagne tastes isn't. This whole issue reminds me of a family dealing with a boozer. Family members get frustrated and take all the bottles they can find and throw them away. The boozer is contrite for a while but fights for his or her rights to booze. But, low and behold, the sly fox hid one in the toilet tank. There's always one in the toilet tank. The 'G Fund' is our Bacardi in the tank.

    Smile Re: Bubbles, bubbles, toil and Troubles...

    Apple

    Can anyone see the pattern not mentioned: Arizona, Texas, Illinois, Florida and Kentucky

    Hint 1: Illinois is the odd ball.
    Hint 2: Average is about 29
    Hint 3: Average without the Dead Cat is about 35

    Kalefornea's Gubnor Moonbeam assumed a state GDP increase of 4% for his budget. Now, he must assume 2%. Regretfully, Gubnor Moonbeam also opines:

    He also said much of the income tax revenue increase the state enjoyed this spring will not be lasting, attributing the rush instead to wealthy taxpayers shifting income from 2013 into 2012 to avoid higher federal tax rates. Administration officials said they also expect tax revenue in the final two months of the budget year, May and June, to fall below original estimates.

    Read more here: Gov. Jerry Brown takes cautious approach on California budget - State Budget - The Sacramento Bee

    My guess is that said wealthy plutocrats are also shifting income to Arizona, Texas, Florida and Kentucky. Just a guess. That will, unexpectantly, reduce his rosy scenario a bit more. What a tragedy. All those needy graspers will have nothing to grasp from. Tragedy...
