there is general rule of thumb that us stock market people use when the market is going up:

if your cleaning lady/mendoub/cab driver/ha’ris starts talking to you about the market,… its a sign that the top is near.

when its going down the same can be said:

when your cleaning lady/mendoub/cab driver/ha’ris starts talking to you about the market,…. the end might be in sight.

(the 21st century amendment to the rule of thumb will include bloggers that dont normally blog about financial matters, and conspiracy theory forums that are normally more concerned with aliens who are hiding behind mars planning their invasion.)

except for crashing markets, there is one more thing,…

the capitulation move, or the disgust trades,… but i think that has yet to happen.

irony is :

securities that perform well, in one of the most heavily secured securities markets in the world, which just happens to be in one of the most dangerous and unsecured cities in the world.

translation: one of the best places to invest your money right now is also one of the most dangerous.

ladies and gentlemen i give you the iraqi stock exchange:

addendum to universal truth no 15:

joy:

is being in it while everyone else is bleeding on every other market in the world.

😀

universal truth no 15 – the alternate ending:

supreme genius and supreme stupidity both rely on the same process of thinking outside the universe that holds the galaxy, that holds the solar system, that holds the earth, that holds the continent, that holds the country, that holds the city, that holds the block, that holds the building, that holds the room that holds the box which you are thinking outside of.

exactly which i am guilty of has yet to be determined.

mo’ money, mo’ money,

write off our loans!

mo’ money, mo’ money,

write off our loans!

so the mp’s are headed back into parliament to demand yet another KD50 salary + pension increase and the debt write off.

haha, sweet!

thats even more government oil money that wont be wasted on the future generation, and i wont have to wait for the government to allocate the money into investment funds before it hits my pocket.

you see if they did invest it wisely, as they should,…

then it would have gone into investment companies, with professionals managing the future generations’ assetts, and only the profits would have filtered into the investment companies’ earnings before being paid to me as dividends next year.

but now, if approved, the new salary increase will hit the market during the summer. which means that it’ll all be spent by summer. so the money will actually be transfered to the companies, and their earnings will get a nice little boost.

so instead of waiting a whooooole year, the companies whose shares i own will be flush with cash, which will be reflected in their earnings and therefore their share price will float up to heaven on the green wings of the money gods. and all this on top of the dividends that i’ll be getting next year!

god bless the mentally handicapped indeed!

much better than wasting it all on future generations.

and on the debt write off issue,… yet again.

i say ” Write it all off!”

they say that you should never argue with a retard cos people from a distance cant tell who is who. and i agree.

the people of this nation campaigning for this will not wake up one morning and go

” i say old boy, perhaps this isnt the most proper course of action for the future of our nation. perhaps we should just bear the burden of our own financial retardedness?”

you see, as long as people are in debt, justifiable debt or otherwise, they will always be the pawns of those promising to fight for the debt write off. and as long as there are people in debt, then every MP under the sun will support it cos thats where the votes are. for the MP’s its an easy target. is it any wonder that so many “conservatives” who happen to favor the bearded look got into power?

so the skunk shall make a public endorsement:

” i hereby support the motion to write off personal debts that have been built up over time so that everyone can drive a merc and live in a big ass house with 10 servants.”

but,…

and its a big ass “but”, as big a “but” as a big ass butt on a big butted ass.

in order to do it fairly across the board, so that those who havent taken out loans will also be helped, i propose the following crucial “but”:

before being eligible for the loan write off, you must declare yourself financially bankrupt.

because thats exactly what you are.

and with the status of financial bankruptcy you will qualify for aid and a debt write off,…. but,…. with the aid, and with the write off you also have to deal with everything that comes along with your status of being bankrupt.

you will get a new number on your ID card stating that :

a) you are bankrupt, and

b) you are bankrupt to the sum of, for example: class1 – KD5,000, class2 – KD10,000, class3 – KD50,000, etc. ( i know you love your social class hierarchy 😛 )

and with that number on your ID:

you will not be allowed to take out new loans, cos you’ve proved that you cant handle the money.

you will not be allowed to have credit cards, cos you’ve proved that you cant deal with them like an adult.

you will not be allowed to obtain credit of any kind until such a time that you can prove that you are no longer financially bankrupt, and until you can put up collateral other than your nationality and your government job.

but the good thing is that no one will come after you cos you havent paid your loans. you’ll keep everything you stupidly bought, the house, the furniture, the maids, the cars,..

its just that you’ll probably have to drive the same car for the next 10 years.

:O

shock horror!!!

that my friends is the only fair way to resolve this matter. its the only way to make it fair on the hard working people who live a life based on principles and securing the future of their family. and its the only way to make this debt write off a one time deal.

cos in this region, shame and saving face are the only things that matter. its the whole reason these morons are in debt in the first place.

so i say use your own worst traits to better yourselves. get to the heart of how your peoples function and you will understand how to divert all this mis-spent energy into something positive.

so yeah debt write off and salary increase! bring it on!

i’m gonna go count my money now,… 😛

an opinion is like an asshole,…..

everybody has one.

which is an old saying,…

and thats fine,…

but,….

its just that some people are full of shit,

and have a chronic case of diarhea and Irritable Boewl Syndrome.

😀

freshly baked buns must be poked.

if life was black and white,….

bisexuals would only be attracted to big fat men with manboobs.
