MEMBER DIARY

Posted on November 10, 2006 at 9:03 a.m.

I was taking a trip down memory lane today and came across a diary I posted after the election in 2006:

I need someone to help me keep track of these figures

I think we need to keep track of where the country was economically on the day of the election. I am on the road most of the time, working hard like most all of you, and need some help. Here are the figures I am interested in, and would love more suggestions:

DJIA
Nasdaq
Consumer confidence
Unemployment
Median price of a new home
Prime rate
Worker productivity

The MSM will try to tell us how much better things will be under the Dems, and we all know that is a crock of crap. The boom is over, I am 100 %in short-term bonds, and I think we need to ram the coming recession straight where the sun doesn’t shine in Nancy Pelosi’s skirt. Many can play the game they have played.

My work is in commercial construction, and the word I am getting from the hated upper 2% is that the plug is going to be pulled on a multiple projects that keep millions of people like me employed. America has no idea what a great economy we now have, and no idea what they did on Tuesday to destroy it. The markets were betting on divided government.

Just watch.

And no Harvard PhD either. I hate when I am right.
