    Obviously the layup of he decade was buy Hal when Cheny got elected. I did not becase I thought he would be concerned about fairness. (this is the most embarrassing thouhgt- I feel like erasing it.)

    Prior to that when Clinton took over and people were worried about nationalized medicine the trade was short drugs.

    Anyone care to place bets on what it would mean if the dems take over both houses.

    short bonds? go long gay and lesbian wedding chapels? Short bomb makers? go long trial lawyes so short insurance companies?

    Short health care stocks, short drug companies, short defense stocks.

    Oh yea, go long common sense because it will be in short supply:D
  3. If the dems win don't even worry - most cities will end up as a smoking hole and you will end up shopping for Burkas to wear.

    Yes that right, a few lightly armed people will swim undetected over here and overwhelm the entire Western Military Industry Complex. And take away your freedoms.

    Be very scared, submit to one-party rule.

  5. Curious as to why the Iraq war is not 'won' yet? You telling me the #1 military in the world is being held back by a bunch of 'gun toting cave dwellers' for 3 years now?

    That is the strategy, to win right? Not to occury and soak up the oil at any cost to human life? I find the official story to be confusing, can any true patriots explain to me?

  6. Nugget


    short pharmaceuticals, defense and haliburton (hal)
    long alternative energy stocks..
  7. ADM and FCEL charts look sick now. Pricing in a dem loss?
  8. A dem loss/win will have a negligible affect on the market if any.

    That very special "John Kerry Moment" yesterday... was the beginining of the end.
  10. Our original strategy was to sit on our hands, do nothing, and then complain about anyone who had a strategy to fight terrorism...

    But then we decided that would leave you boys with nothing to do.
