I don't know about you, but this is REALLY troubling me.

Link from the sheeple media:

Worrisome Excerpts that made me question is my tax $ really deployed correctly:

"We look forward to the day where getting up for work is an option,” said Matthew. “We would much rather sit at home drinking coffee together with our two basset hounds ..." ( Comment: I thought soldiers are supposed to be enjoying their works, which is KILLING people ).

" They bought a Nissan Xterra in 2005 and then an Acura TL in 2006 – both new " (Comment: Huh? What of the Ford Explorer? The GMC Sierra? H2? Are they not STONED by coworkers driving these to work?)

"in their refurbished 1967 M20F Mooney airplane. But the plane also costs about $1,000 a month to maintain." - Double huh? $60k millionaires?

Perpetuate the illusion...

HAHAHAHAHAHA

You want to know how to get "monetarily rich?" Keep taking calculated risks until you find something that works! The odds are you blow up a few times before your turn comes, but there is no substitute for risk-taking and persistence. Doing something you love is not a component despite what people will tell you.

If anyone tells you otherwise, they're lying or the money was given to them.

So grow a pair folks if you want to make some money.

Also, you can't spend your way to wealth...

those were very odd choices for a pair of army people regardless of price, were they not usually buying all american cars? and aviation fuel is not exactly cheap, i agree.

They will never own a G550 or Citation X on that program.

What happened to AsianBull? Is he also banned from SF?

Sorry mtgspy to hijack your thread.

MTGSPY said...

Asianbull has discredited himself by repeatedly reversing calls or making calls that immediately proven to be untimely.

His last call was covering everything on Monday this week, and went long Moodys (MCO).

I could not imagine how that went if you work for a hedge fund. :D

Greenie said...

Asianbull is a sucker of different variety. There are bullish and bearish suckers, but there is a third group that I describe as trader suckers. These people successfully pick pennies in front of steamrollers few times, and then get wiped out in one big sweep.

Few weeks back, he was away looking for jobs. Now tell me something - why would anybody with extraordinary skills in trading look for job? They will either look for money to start a hedge fund, or manage their own money and prosper - right?

PCap said...

He called today the bottom in housing based on new home starts...?!??!

Said that was a reason to go long financials. http://www.tickerforum.org/cgi-ticker/akcs-www?post=45876

"Now tell me something - why would anybody with extraordinary skills in trading look for job? "

Very interesting insight. These were my motivation to keep adding GS short ($600k/person wages), Greenie. If they were that good then come and get us?

Greenie, the lady that called u a UK muslim terrorist went bankrupt investing in michigan. On her defense, I would have gone bust too had I done the same and I just might have given that I am a very greedy person.

Unlike her though, I would then simply clean the house of copper pipes and moved somewhere else. :D

I seriously doubt Asianbull makes any of the trades he posts. He just tries to be a flame baiter and it sure as hell works.

D said...

I have a buddy that got a $2mm margin call calling a bottom in biotech/tech back in 2001-2002. He has never been the same.

Asianbitch doesn't have that kind of bankroll but I suspect he will have a similar experience.
