Guess What Isn't Selling Off

Tyler Durden's picture


As stock volume surges (we won't insult your intelligence to tell you what that means for stock prices), there is one asset that is going up. Considering the just released news of imminent land invasion in Libya which will be the next domino to fall in the MENA region, we would believe it is rather easy to guess which asset that is.

In the south you haul your house with you. (Mobile homes or Trailers)

I don't care how high the prices get anymore. We changed employers to work right here within bike ride range.

As for the 3.00 feeder limping home, he probably has a bunch of 5.00 packs of smokes and a pocketful of lotto tickets as well.

60 dollars premium into my work truck does not hurt at all. In fact it only enrages the hybrid crowd standing in line with me. Especially if I made a few move out of the way so I can get to a pump.

Incidentally, 5 years ago you could get more than 18,000 Asian blats for 5,000 USD. This week you get 14,000, and prices are rising here in blats.

That's a double whammy so despite the skyrocketing stock markets, spare a thought for the multinationals who have done so well on the back of a weaker dollar. Not only are margins being squeezed in blats but staffing costs are going through the roof.

Not a bad time to start shorting multi's especially if it's on the back of a fake rally...

They'll soon be heading back West and bringing jobs back with them, though not for the best of reasons.

My wife is the same:  £20 a week for the shopping and school runs.  Except now that £20 a week only lasts until Wednesday, and in a month, will only last until Tuesday.


The other strange thing, she only ever fills up the tank to half, saying it's too expensive to fill it full.  Apart from nearly running empty on a regular basis, she feels the "just in time" mentality suits her.  I only ever let my tank get down to half before refilling.  As I pay all of the bills for the petrol, her attitude leaves me scratching my head.


Still, we eat well on fresh food that she buys daily.  I've got the old brick outbuilding in the garden stocked with tins, a camping stove and 100's of litres of bottled water.  I think we'll make out OK between us.

Check the wife's shoe inventory. Those female half tank fillups are something I'm familiar with. My teen daughter had a similar habit. The gas money I gave her went half into the tank and the rest into her closet.

I assume you live somewhere in the Euro Zone. Personally, I would feel less than easy not having access to firearms.  Even so, I have purchased the top-o-the-line wrist rocket with a max effective range of 200 meters, stabilizer, level and fiber optic sights.  Uses .50 cal bearings or marbles.  It is quiet.

Anyway, in the famous words of Boris Johnson, I couldn't fail to disagree with you less. You have to be in deep denial - or a Keynesian economist attempting to justify your expensive education - not to acknowledge the inflation we see throughout the Eurozone. I'm in the UK, personally, and food and petrol especially are going through the roof.

I fill the car for my spouse. When she protests and it only a half tank according to the needle, I know the car has another 7 gallons in it. True to form I fill it tip top and then let the wife have at it.

Never ever without fail allow your vehicle to run less than half tank. Truckers like me have died learning that lesson in a winter storm that might last a few days.

Oh and the shoes come from a 50 cent or 1 dollar thrift flea store now instead of the mall (At god knows how much retail)


She has to walk past several boxes (Make that Cases) of ammunition and other availible resources every day. I have yet to hear any complaints.

that was an ez Q, tyler.  i got it right on my first guess!  i think it is sooo right that you help us re-gain a lttle confidence after these fukin FED migraines!

this is wonderful, tho.  tax the land and houses to pay for "bailing out" the banksterz.  soon coming to a location near you?  instead of "the EU and the IMF have ordered" after the jig is up and the FED is "internationalized", we'll hear:  "the NWO and the IMF have ordred..."

lol---how about another "window tax"?

with a scottish surname and an irish maternal grandmother, i may have a "bias" here, but it seems to me "we are all irish" now, as per the course materials packet in Slavery 101.  don't know how the irish will respond, but i'd be surprised to hear: yes, massah!  more likely, the new goobermint will run/fly around "doing the nancy pelosi" and try to use all those great communication and negotiating skills while pretending to solve yet another insoluble problem.  i sincerely hope the irish people exile them, permanently, while they are away.

the correct solution, as it will hafta be here, after the last 3 years, is to simply default.  i think it would be great if they expressed a burning desire to remain in the EU, while they announce this, don't you? 

with queen eliz II visiting next month and prez. milk dud flying in a day or two later, as arranged with bilary on st. patty's day, in DC, all i can say is that the NWO will certainly be displaying its repulsive ass as these two arch-creeps parade around their new plantation, display their impeccable rothschild-pleasing manners and toss candy to the kids, while saying, in "earnest" to the goobermint and people, "We do so wish there were more that we could do."

if anyone knows how nations bankrupting themselves to bail out banksters leads to anything but those nations then selling themselves to the same or related banksters, or default, please supply the link.

and, please!  no ann coulter on this, ok?

...i know how you shitheads think.

Are you willing to be taxed out of your home in order for one set of criminals to pay off another's "offer that can't be refused?"

And before you state that you can afford it, let me remind you that property taxes are permanent and will escalate year after year, as more and more revenue will be needed to fill the whole in the revenue bucket.

Why? Because they need it, and you as a property owner, have it.

I would think somebody with the attitude "America, Fuck Yeah!" would care little for global taxation authorities. Especially when the global carbon tax is lined up and ready to go.

Oh, and also, there is no such thing as Ireland, and thus it cannot want or not want anything. There are only individuals who operate under its facade, and others who have to live under it.

And as far as the charges increasing each year, let em. 100 dollars to the school, 5.00 to the fire deprt, 4 to police and 3 for street dept.

Cut the schools down and give more for the rest of the services.

Or better yet, buy some land in rural area and only deal with county tax.

Perfect scenario to have other countries order your country to raise property taxes. Don't look now but it is looking like there are some Pols and Pol advisers/buddies that would like to force US property owners to do the same. Hmmm...lets see what kind of new speak term can we call a new Fed tax on property owners....I know, The Enhanced American Patriotic Nation Building Act. That'll work, he he he he.

This doesn't, as far as I know, have anything to do with oil or war but I have noticed a pattern in the equities lately especially the ES. A large gap up in the AM and then a lazy sort of arc where we end the day a little lower than we started but well above the previous days' close, so that it closes green. Today seems like it will end up a perfect example. I don't know what's going on but it smacks to me of some type of manipulation, for the purpose of repositioning maybe. Any thoughts ?

Donald Trump for prez.  

Say, 'if we spend our money and lives to invade your country, we're not gonna leave and give it to people who hate us, we're gonna stay and we're gonna keep your oil'.

Exact opposite of what bonehead is now doing.

If we go in, let's keep it along with its oil, then  put up some steak-n-shakes, best-buys & casinos.  Why not.  If the whole place is about to come unglued, might as well get some crude out of it.

$150/bbl here we come! Japan switching from nuke power to oil and gas fired power plants. China, India, Latin America (x/ Venezuela) and the old Soviet Union growing nicely. The US and Western Europe moving along but not growing. So demand continues to hold firm world wide. Getting harder to get oil from the war torn Middle East. And the US government is putting the squeeze on exploration and production. Old fields depleting. The dollar losing value by the minute. All this adds up to higher prices. Cost me $50 to fill my tank yesterday. Not cool at all.

At 100 dollars a tank I will still fill it up.

At 150 or so, I will feel the same, not cool.


The problem is many folks will quit filling after a certain amount of money and then steal gas in the night by punching holes in the bottom of tank as already started in the USA. Repairs and replacement of said tank costs almost two thousand in some cases. I already have some "You pull it" Spare tanks from the yard down the road ready to go in my barn.

Oh, they will find the tank. But wont find the Racing fuel cell I have installed elsewhere in the vehicle.

3 barrels?  I've got 3x275 gallon tanks full of #2 heating oil which I topped off after I switched to nat. gas.  I don't plan on using it for bombs though. I figure I might make a good return on it by selling it by the gallon. I suppose in behind sight I just should have bought gold and silver. Takes up a lot less room, doesn't smell, isn't a fire hazard. I can just picture going to a restaurant with a couple of gallons of oil to trade for a meal. Much easier to lug a silver dollar. Maybe I could leave a pint of oil for a tip?

It seems this feb 13 prediction of oil price  patterns and DJIA I have been posting from time to time holds pretty well.

We could expect Brent higher then in previous peak, by 5-10 USD ( 125-130 USD).

Than it goes down in mid April just to shoot to new highs in approaching May (135-140 USD).

That should stop QE3 in its tracks-which will cause another temporary downturn in oil price.

All things are let loose in July 2011. Must be some supply disruption, serious this time.

Which would lead to serious downturn in stocks, and following double dip in the USA-recession in q1 2012.

Quess who will not be the USA next president?
