    Dr Ken, what is your market short vehicle of choice?

    Markets have recovered from the recent weeks of profit taking and sell down, to make new highs today. There may be some follow through tomorrow, but Monday 8/25 I would expect new highs again in new high territory. Tuesday, maybe trade again at Monday's level, then watch for downside action after Tuesday??

    Its now seven years from the 2007 high which was 7 years from the 2000 high. Nice symmetry

    Wait until the market peaks. See my apparently unnoticed comment right up above on Aug 14.

    Also, remember, Mondays are historically the strongest day of the week for the market. Best gains are on Mondays.

    I agree.
    Obamacare will eat away at the disposable income of the middle class like a flesh-eating bacteria. And just wait till the employer mandate kicks in, in 2015. More layoffs. Another thing, if you think Obamacare works bad when just an individual or family is trying to sign up for it, just wait until a whole company of 20 employees tries to sign up.

    It is already bogged down under its own administrative rules as it is.

    Remember too that the Advance Premium Tax Credits [APTC] - the taxpayer is supposed to get these, are really insurance company subsidies.

    The "consumer" applies the APTC to his insurance premiums (doesn't actually get them); they are a direct loss of revenue to the government as they are a transfer payments to the insurance industry. They are deficit spending transfer payments that create money, "Ex nihilo" for the insurance companies.

    What they are costing are not reflected in the deficit yet.

    After all these APTCs that have been given to the insurance companies, they will still need to raise rates as you have said.

    The APTCs will probably be a nightmare in the upcoming tax season of 2015. There is no way to anticipate the turmoil and anguish that will result when people try to do their taxes and reconcile the Obamacare APTCs and maybe find out they have to pay some of it back!!

    2015 will be a bad year. The pain may start before the end of this year.

    Don't ask me why, but I am looking for, (not necessarily predicting with 100% certainty) a market top around the 25th or 26th this month, - a 4 or 5% gain from here, which would be the top, then 25% down side after the Harry Dent and contratianadvisor point of view. Although I have concern that Treasuries may not be a safe haven this time. Weakness in Treasuries could even be the trigger of a decline.

    A S&P rally back to 2000 by the third week of the month would be something to really watch.

    Can Vitamin C keep you from dying from Ebola?

    JimStone.com has a recommendation he received from a doctor sent to him by email:

    "Vitamin C does not kill ebola, it simply stops the ebola inflicted scurvy and prevents the way ebola kills - internal bleeding - from ever happening. Absent this feature of ebola, it would be harmless and a normal immune system will knock it out..." [btw, Vit D2 and D3 boosts the immune system too]

    Ebola kills by depleting vitamin C which causes internal bleeding and hemorrhaging - thus the zombie-like character of this death.

    More details about this here:
    http://bit.ly/1ptfo5K

    While the report by the unknown doctor cannot be corroborated, Stone says it "washes" with known facts about Ebola.

    I see what you mean Al. I heard strong doses of vitamin C will work too. Avoid the "bush-meat." Especially the smoked fruit bats.

    Hey guys, trust the CDC. These guys know what they are doing.

    They may misplace some smallpox virus occasionally, and accidentally exposes lab workers to anthrax, but other than that there is nothing serious to worry about in their handling of Ebola.

    They needed to have the doctor transported to Emory U so the CDC could get good samples of this virus so they could add it to the arsenal- I mean develop vaccines to add to the vaccine arsenal.

    The thing to worry about is just going to the hospital:

    In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated roughly 1.7 million hospital-associated infections, from all types of microorganisms, including bacteria, combined, cause or contribute to 99,000 deaths each year … [Wikipedia] http://bit.ly/1lT6auv

    This number (99,000) is not to be confused with the 98,000 who die from outright medical mistakes in hospitals each year. This number is thought to be a conservative estimate.
    “In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published the famous “To Err Is Human” report, which dropped a bombshell on the medical community by reporting that up to 98,000 people a year die because of mistakes in hospitals“ http://bit.ly/1lT6auw

    Hospital related deaths may be the third leading cause of death after heart disease and cancer. It is true that the people who die may already have a problems, but this is not an excuse.

    The CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION link listed in the Wikipedia quote is a gold mine of information if you know what to look for. I will give hints: There is a CDC building named after a guy who helped cover up “more than one shooter” evidence in the Kennedy assassination.

    The CDC has a “Zombie apocalypse outreach campaign” link too – [not making this up]

    The CDC headquarters is in Druid Hills of Atlanta, I like that.

    Article admits the CDC sent “several biological warfare agents to the Iraqi government from 1984 through 1989, including Botulinum toxin, West Nile virus, Yersinia pestis and Dengue fever virus.[11] “ - priceless information.

    Well, that's enough fun for now. Just watch for their new patents to be coming out in the future. Find out what plague virus they are patenting next, then buy stock in the pharma who will fast-track the vaccine.

    Good point. In 2008 when silver - paper silver that is - went to $9 there was no one offering to sell it. "No offer." It doesn't matter how low the paper price goes when no one if offering to sell it.

    Not too far off John. Monsanto is funding and partnering with Tekmira to develop Ebola vaccines. The CDC is allowing it to be "fast-tracked". The CDC will probably receive a royalty because they "own" or will own the disease.

    If only you had bought (NASDAQ:TKMR) a few days ago. I'm sure some that had inside knowledge did.

    IT

    Why does the US government Dept HHS, hold a patent on a strain of the Ebola virus? Yes, a patent. If I remember right only “inventions” can be patented. Also, naturally occurring compounds and living beings or their DNA cannot be patented. If Ebola is a naturally occurring or wild virus that somehow developed in the jungles of Africa, then I do not see how it could be patented.

    The strain they have a patent on is not the same one that is causing the panic now. They have transported the doctor who is infected and could have been treated in Africa, to Emory University which happens to be right next door to the CDC. They probably want to get the patent on this strain too.
    Emory U collaborates with the CDC and donated land for the CDC headquarters.
    http://bit.ly/1vvMpCV

    It is suspicious that Ebola broke out in three capital cities in three different countries in Africa within a short time span. “The capital cities of all three countries have been affected: Conakry (Guinea), Monrovia (Liberia) and Freetown (Sierra Leone).” http://bit.ly/1vvMpTb

    Remember my comment from chapt 73 about the interview with the retired US Border Patrol officer? He made reference to the outbreak in the three African cities at the same time.
    http://seekingalpha.co...

    Here is a direct link to his interview. The Ebola reference is at the 2:45 minute point.
    http://bit.ly/1nuzFYP

    Here is the link to the article about the Patents. Mike Adams raises pointed questions about the existence of the patents mentioned above.
    http://bit.ly/1vvMoik

    I'm just asking questions. Anyone else heard anything about this?

    I placed my first trade that will get filled tomorrow.
    Also I think (NYSE:O), one of your positions will work out good. It was really oversold short term and it is ready to rebound now. I am thinking about another 100 sh in RL. People like the 5% yield with monthly dividend.

  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments!! OBAMACARE DIEING?? [View instapost]
    Ha ha, Even Barney Frank is appalled that Obama lied about Obamacare:

    Barney Frank 'Appalled' By Obama Administration: 'They Just Lied To People
    http://huff.to/1pSFw5Y

    The part about Barney Frank saying that Obama lied is the only good part. The rest of the Huffington article is crap.

    People are thinking Obamacare is running smooth now since the website works more than 50% of the time now - I know, that's awesome. But just wait till the end of 2014 when people try to do their income taxes and have to reconcile their "Advance Premium Tax Credit" that they got to offset or pay their insurance premium, with their tax liability on the 1040 form. I predict a tax nightmare. Especially for those who estimated their income wrong on their Marketplace application and will therefore owe more income tax at year end. There will be screaming and rage.

    Also wait until the employer mandate is supposed to start in 2015.

    "The ObamaCare "employer mandate" is a requirement that all businesses with over 50 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees provide health insurance for their full-time employees, or pay a per month "Employer Shared Responsibility Payment" on their federal tax return"

    Shared Responsibility Payment means "penalty" in plain English.

    What was supposed to have grown anyway? What sector? Maybe government administration? Healthcare.gov website development and Obamacare administration?

    Did anything in the private sector grow? Maybe home repair from tornadoes?

  • The Healthcare Fallacy [View instapost]
    I will spoon feed it to you since you seen to be totally ignorant. In 1976 ( the swine flu fiasco) the Federal Government declared a Swine Flu epidemic because one soldier on a military base contracted it and died. A national vaccine campaign was hastily launched with the objective to vaccinate every person in the US against the Swine flu.

    The epidemic never materialized and only the one person died from the swine flu. However the vaccinations were cancelled after cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome were reported. In the aftermath, 500 cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome were believed to be caused by the vaccine. Also at least 30 deaths resulted from the vaccine.

    One person died from Swine Flu; 30 or more died from the vaccines.

    Lawsuits asking damages of $3,417,000,000 were filed against the US government.

    This is exactly the context of the 2009 Report to the President on the Preparation, etc.

    In 2009 because WHO declared the swine flu to be a Phase 6 level pandemic and there was a hysterical campaign, just like 1976 for everyone to be vaccinated. It was exactly in the context of 1976 with the GBS, deaths, and the lawsuits, that the Presidents advisers presented this report.

    Because the 2009 report is available to the public it is not going to come out and say that "the Swine flu vaccine will cause adverse reactions, miscarriages and death." No, of course not. But it is clear what they mean. The GBS cases and deaths WERE NOT CHANCE. THEY PAID DAMAGES after 1976. The GBS cases and deaths are likely understated.

    This is an example of the propaganda machine anticipating the contingencies and planning its course of action.

    Just like, do you really think Obama held a meeting with IRS Agents and instructed them to target Tea Party groups and passed out a how-to memo. That's how ridiculous your dismissal of this 2009 document is. They use subtlety and suggestion.

    The damages in 1976 WERE NOT CHANCE. The same for 2009. Yes-I can read.

    Hi al

    I don't like anti-Americanism either. Harry Reid is un-American. What he was doing in Nevada, while running off the ranchers was freeing up the land for a Chinese company that his son represents to build a $5 billion solar farm. Bring in heavily armed BLM goons to run off ranchers so the Chinese can take over the land.

    Get rid of Harry Reid. What a festering hemorrhoid on the US's gubt collective a$$, if you know what...

    And BTW the US Gubt IS NOT AMERICA. America is the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and people living free and doing the pursuit of happiness. The US gubt is giving us the opposite; it's not America.
