Rick Perry: Middle Income Americans Don't Pay Enough Income Taxes

Before we get into the Texan Mind - we have to see how "in disarray" The republican party is.  Finally, after getting a "D" in economics at college we find him with good hair and good looks as the Governor of Texas - What a fucking idiot!

If you are not a native Texan. You'll have a hard time understanding anything coming out of Texas. Here is a man who aims a pistol at his balls, takes a shot and misses, picks up a more powerful pistol and, tries again and misses...Come on Rick...Pick up the double barrel shotgun, take a good look down the barrel - can you see light, yes - put your big toe on the triggers while you load both barrels - keep looking down the barrels - can you see him laughing, nary a hair out of place - lean forward and catch your balance with your toes... Yes, that's right Rick.

N/B The American Press (sans Fox, of course) has purchased shovels and a "Virtual Plot of Land"  They're all drooling waiting for the Whistle.

Whichever way Libya Turns, after Gadhafi, Freedom Now!

Murder by electronic Desire

A Philadelphia man was gunned down hours after a judge upheld felony charges against his ex-girlfriend, who was accused of offering $1,000 on Facebook for someone to kill him. But with the teenager who allegedly took the bait already in custody, investigators said Tuesday they aren't sure why the man was killed. N/B 3rd party, Killer - not in that loop!  Wife being held until judge can figure out what her solicitation was.  Young man who answered her on the net.... was in police custody before the murder - he was just having fun, I suppose.

How does it go?  Be careful of what you dream for......
(dream (fantasy) can be exposed on Facebook - for many to see.....)

Man of the Year Award - "The Neighbor"

Suspect Phil Garcia tried to coax the girl into a green van late Monday afternoon from a playground near her home. “The child was being resistant to his enticement and that is what caused him to get out of the car and actually push her into the van,” A neighbor, who was not identified, got into his own car and began following the van while also calling 911.  Garcia noticed he was being followed and tried to lose the car but instead crashed about a mile and a half from where the girl was taken. Garcia ran away, the neighbor was able to safely pull the girl from the van. Police arrived moments later and arrested Garcia.
The neighbor probably saved her life," Police said. "[The suspect] could have sexually assaulted her, could have hurt her or actually killed her."

It's a good time to realize what your responsibility is to your neighbors - and hopefully theirs to you. 

Rick Perry is ephemeral now you see him - he'll knock himself right off the podium - Praise The Lord!

It's been a good day - jack and I went out and around 10 miles - about 95 degrees - stopped twice to let him in the river chasing stones... he won't dive for them however.  Home tuned up a newer guest bike which wasn't clicking on all gears..... Gave Jack a raw beef rib... treated his pads... about an hour later... we went out again... about 3 miles around.....Came home at 7, wine, leaf and salad (hard boiled egg, Tomato, broccoli, green beans, mushrooms, small amount of lettuce and a dressing made out of peanut sauce, Valdalia Onions, sesame ginger....and other stuff.... I have a heavy white plate (oval) with the ends cutoff - so that it can go around in the microwave.... I placed about 2 large serving spoons of an "add along" bowel of Beans and lentils.... heated it up.... moved it back across the middle of the plate for its 1/2 interest in the plate.  I didn't mix the salad I just dumped it over on it's 1/2 of the plate (yes, it's a big plate) poured myself a glass of Valpolicella . and mixed the salad as I ate it and the beans/lentils... smoked some more leaf, drank some more wine

(If you are just bored to death reading my bull shit Hit the "x" with your pointer and move over to something like "Angry Birds!")

When I was six years old (1948) we had a thin old man, Giles,  come to do outside house work.  He would come in for lunch and he had - a flattened out soup bowl with more than a few slices of white bread... He put sugar on the bread and then poured whole milk over the bread to near the top of the bowel.  That's what old men ate (I thought when I was 6) for lunch.

It was a good Sunday... Tomorrow at 3am the markets on the pacific rim will be closing and London will be opening I've got my coffee in bed with Bloomberg (radio Tom Keene) telling me what I should know already...I'll sign in about 5am and see what happened to US stocks in an overnight non-trading (to me) market as and at 6am the pre-market opens in NY - everyone can trade it - except for options - (no pre -market) until Wall St opens at 9:30 - My day has opened slowly until the full force of "Greed" erupts. (This week happens to be Options Expiration week (happens monthly) Very large money tries to "PIN" stocks so they can't lose - as the price pinned causes the most losses between puts and calls)

If I haven't made a trade between (6am and 8:30 Mtn Time) I'll take the morning off - I check in with what I'm watching on my Android. including about 6 friends who are posting while they are trading (they are smarter than I) - If nothing looks like something I would like... I may take the remainder of the day.

What do you want to do when you grow up?..... I'm doing it, late, but I got here.

Interesting about being a trader... after you painfully learn how to lose, you begin to learn how to win more than you lose.... you find a "nitch" that works for you - you don't trade what others trade - maybe some (your way) and finally, after learning and mentally earning and losing - your eyes focus on a familiar type of set-up and your gut takes over... Eyes, Brain, Gut - I remember when I got that together in my prior field... in horses and dogs.... it gives one self-respect.

It's getting dark (about 9PM) just a few weeks ago it was after 10. Moving right along through summer - my week goes Sunday Monday Friday Saturday and then repeats it... Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday - takes not space, no time....blip blip blip and again it's Friday...
Just saw a show on PubTV "Alzheimers" (Don't even think about it!)
Listened to NPR about the significance of of 1492 Christopher Columbus sailing the seven diseases  - germs, disease, livestock,  foreign insects and bugs and its effect on Man....eventually Earth. 1 out of 6 died as a result of mixing the worlds problems and solutions.. ships back and forth, and back and forth ....cross pollinating everything from everywhere.
The book is titled "1493" by a man named Mann.

Looking forward to "The Shakespeare Festival" here in Boise - "Taming of the Shrew" Wednesday...

Time to go out Jack!

almost three months ago, I set out personally, to resurrect something that I lost....some heady shit!

It was my May 18th post.- 3 Full Moons ago - Whatever it was, it has disappeared this past week. (permanently, I hope) Time to move forward.  Recently, I became more comfortable making Larger trades with controls that protect me.... I'm approaching my 69th Birthday - in a week.  I have changed some of my daily habits and my life has changed along with those changes....from 5pm to 3am this morning (a celebration of sorts) I have fasted, drinking wine during the 10 hours I passed the time listening to my ipod hooked up to sound - pretty loud and consumed a fair amount "leaf" to balance out the time - we'll, I'll be moving on... just in time for fall - a favorite season. What's to come? - I wonder....

SDS at 24.20

began layering in SDS at 24.20 and changing chart from 15min to 10 min... between a Full Moon, A Friday, fear of holding, Whipsaw action based on weekend holding fear of "whatever."  although my loads are in 500 share lots I am limiting my loss to $500 - $750 WTF! I have been in positive territory since entry - I hope my timing is right

@$24.62 Update 2 hours later w/ 1 1/4 hour to go

 + $.42 X "x"M -
Has now retraced to the 24.48VWAP support? And Support (at VWAP (blue line) up to 24.63 The market is "tensioning-up" with one hour to go before the weekend
In this next chart (one hour to go) the yellow line (S+P 500 of which SDS is 2X inversely related) is trying to turn up while SDS is returning to the VWAP) touch and go here... off to make lunch for the last 1/2 hour
The Volume for this last hour has doubled 
the price is toying with the VWAP @ 24.50.
At the end of the 1st 15min of the last hour the price has moved up to 24.59 - at this point the automatic trading - Intense computers - without operators will be taking over - and will have their way with this bitch. At this juncture with 40 minutes to go the market has been fairly flat for the day - after the 400 and 500 pt swings over the past few days will this be an end to the whipsawing as we have seen or is there some magic play to happen. VWAP = "Volume Weighted Average Price" and this price has been holding just above it. 
This next chart is 1/2 hour to go. with a slight trend up and is at 24.62 holding +$.40
just after this chart the price has moved up to 24.72 and my horse is in the lead for the "home stretch"  Out at 24.62 +.42X4M+=$1.680M
There was 20 minutes left I'll post the final chart next.

Closed at 24.55

This is what I do for a living - this trade was equivalent of 2X short the S + P 500 - This trade was watched by me for 4 hours after the market was open for 2.5 hours - waiting for the "feel"

Pitbull #1 most dangerous dog - If your neighbor's Pit Bull is docile - it is probably poorly breed...but is always genetically dangerous - however docile. If the owner dismisses the reputation - disappear!

 A Pit bull is a fearless dog that will take on any opponent. They will lock their jaws onto the prey until it's dead. Pit bulls have a reputation of mauling people to death and they are highly sought for dog fighting.
Today's news:
Pet pit bull mauls pregnant Calif. woman to death. The body of Darla Napora, 32, was found at her home in Pacifica, said police. The victim's husband found his wife around noon, with one of the family's pit bulls standing over her body, KNTV said. He was able to get the dog into the backyard before police arrived, but the animal escaped, charging the officers later. "He was in the driveway all frantic, yelling," Kathy Carlson told the newspaper. "He had blood on his hands, blood on his shirt and blood down his pants."

If you see a Pit Bull in your daily life - protect yourself, children and your dog. Create any safe distance. Even if the dog is on a leash -

A Hat Tip to Lynne Gravier 77, a Humanitarian

A woman who turned her rural Northern California home into a spa for wild bears won't go to jail after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge of feeding big game.
Gravier, 77, known as the "Bear Woman," set up a plush hangout for her furry friends at her 40-acre Laytonville property, complete with a kiddie pool and a buffet of cornmeal and peanut butter sandwiches, sometimes laced with glucosamine to ease the arthritis pain in older bears.
Authorities who raided the property in response to neighbor complaints last August found a total of 15 black bears who regularly relaxed inside Gravier's house and on her deck. She also fed 18 cats, three dogs, 40 peacocks and other wildlife out of her home, which was covered in filth (filth?), an indoor nature preserve - some authorities just don't get it.....

On my way at 1:45 in SSO

X thousand shares @ 38.09
I missed this same trade yesterday because of a
nap. Out at 39.70 (pivot point)
(Full Moon on deck, Saturday.) Thursday, will be my last day of trading - Friday and Monday should be Wild Mayhem on Wall Street - Tuesday, Change will come - and hopefully everything should smooth out.
N/B After Market - I re-entered this trade with a new cost of $37.75,( yes it dropped $2 after I sold it, from previous trade.)  SSO can not be shorted - have to wait for a reset. UPDATE: Friday AM on opening... closed out 37.75 position at 39.15 - will wait again for a return to lower number to re-enter.

Do you stay in the saddle and ride it out or
do you bail before you really get hurt. Most

These are the times.... for sure

A message from a member of the Idaho Canoe and Kayak club:

"Did an overnight float on Elk Creek in Bear Valley this weekend. But when we got to the take out at Bear Valley campground, someone had chopped the tree down that my bike was locked to for the shuttle and took it. Major disappointment."

Taking a break from Vacation - The Volatility Index

Has called me back to trading.  I am in the pre-market putting some skin in the game.  Hard to watch without having money on the line... looking good.
Troubled, indecisive times starts the Volatility Index to express itself. Often referred to as the fear index or the fear gauge, it represents one measure of the market's expectation of stock market volatility over the next 30 day period - S + P Index) Some might call it "Gamblers Excitement" with the proper controls - it's just a job with excitement. The Sprint is a position in stock - the other two represent "Derivatives" a leveraged investment representing a stock - providing multiple returns or losses as the stocks win or lose.......

N/B - New Moon (representing acceleration of what's in play) was July 30 (from Susan, my favorite Astrologer: 

"As you enter August, you're feeling exceptionally optimistic, and for good reason. The new moon in Leo, which occurred on July 30, was unusually beautiful, with the Sun and new moon entering your new birthday year arm-in-arm with the love planet Venus."
