  1. Don't Stop the Dance (I)



    Donít stop. Donít stop the dance.
    Brian Ferry, Roxy Music

    Sounds like the theme song being sung not only GM, Citigroup, GMAC and other Ďvilifiedí lending institutions, but also for the guy that speeds through a left turn signal just as it turns red in his BMW SUV- and talking on his cell phone. To that person, image and perception isnít everything, itís the only thing. Out in public he may appear all important and mighty talking on that brand new ...

  2. Sometimes It Makes Sense

    I'm not particularly fond of it. I rarely look at it. It could disappear and I wouldn't miss it.

    I'm talking about "The Tracker".

    I think it draws some folks in. A hook. Something not found anywhere else. It sets this site apart from all the others.

    There is more than one reason one may want to be tracked. It could be an opportunity to compare how ones personal trading system compares to others. Perhaps it's an opportunity to see how well one has learned ...

  4. Fix the cigarette lighter.

    Elwood: It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?

  5. The Bears are biting back

    A lot of my TSP friends have been getting Bearish on me. I donít hold any malice against them; in fact, I love the swatting of Bullish & Bearish banter among us. Most of them arenít invested so they have a keen interest in seeing this market take a dump. I am invested, so my interest lies in taking profits. Most of them are killing me on the tracker, so if youíre following me over them then you might want to have your head examined.
