any mention of how gold and silver bars were flying off the shelf ?
if you're not drinking yet, you're not paying attention
Helll yea, hickup. Got to get the parti started bitcheeeechzzz!! You go to forgetaboutit nevermind you, hickup. It's 12 oclock somewhere, down by the nice riverrr, hickup.
Build it and they might come. If they don't, it's another post-holiday fire sale. Consumers have mostly figured it out by now.
" and... alcohol. The last one is self-explanatory."
Apparently, I'm not the only one stocking up!
its also a goood fuel source
Destocking? Not if you count my wine cellar.
It's always happy hour somewhere
I wonder if future caricatures of Americans will resemble those of Russia, with everyone drunk on cheap vodka (or whiskey/moonshine in our case).
Im stocking lots of alcohol, pint bottles are best barter items I believe, far better than gold in a Mad Max economic model...cases for $150 or so right now.
but how do you keep from drinking it all before mad max economy?
Gold & Silver, Wine & Cheese I'm good for life.
And the christmas season is crashing already nice.
Predicted by anyone with a brain.
Lots of people are gonna lose their job in January.
Just you watch, once the republicans come in, some truth is gonna be reported about the economy and it's gonna be blamed on republicans.
We are totallly out of the Scotch that my mother-in-law left us when she died in 2003. Better get a jug while I still can.
My respects. But just how much did she leave you?
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit drinkin...
I'm stocking up on a full line of alcoholic products, purely for medicinal reasons. Liquors are the best, shelf life is really good.
....speakin' of medicine, don't forget to stockpile the top shelf pharmaceutical grade weed. In CA, an oz. sells in the pot pharmacy for right around the price of an oz. of gold. Just sayin'.
- the ultimate currency, eat it, smoke it or trade it.
Shit, is that expensive? Had no clue.
I'm talking about the top end in quality and one-hit potency. No seeds in the buds to prevent bootlegging it. So pungent you need to keep it in tin foil wraps and store it in a safe to keep it from stinking up the house. The licensed farmers have really come a long way since the 60s. Of course, you can always get the skunk mota on the street for far less. Weed is not much different from alcohol pricing....you get what you pay for.
In Colorado at the Pot Pharm an oz of weed costs less than an 1lb of silver thanks to Benny Boy.
In California, the price of an ounce of medical cannabis weed ranges from $250-$400. I don't know what you're smoking, but it's nothing from the Golden State...
I don't know how much this would contribute to alcohol destocking, but I know that wine wholesalers and distributors have been dumping the shit out of their stock. If it isn't the "middle ground" of premium wines - those that are in the $30-$50 price point - getting absolutely slaughtered, it's the consolidations among distributors exiting portfolios. Just to put some perspective on it all, we're now seeing the 2008 vintages come to market, putting it right at the same time as the correction. Much of the talk now is if there's any more left out there, or was the last few months the the grand finale in a year of great wine buying.
What I don't know either is the seasonality. We're at the start of both the drinking season and a big shipping season (heat perishability isn't an issue in the fall/winter). It would kind of make sense that you'd see businesses clear out a lot of floor space.
Just idle bantor on my part, I'm not in the business or anything.
and for god sakes don't forget the absinthe!
@Tyler: I believe the moment has arrived for the key to unlock said bottle???
Somebody tried to switch my Whisky with Kool Aide - Where's Timmah?
This would explain why I almost swallowed my pen when I was going to
prescribe Marinol and checked the price for a pt. I told him to buy
from his nephew,instead.
Lumber, no commodity is more under the thumb of the federal government than lumber, any destocking is intentional policy, specifically to crush new housing and prop up existing housing, what's next a "new housing program" where millions of existing houses are intentionally destroyed?
