    People have asked me to write a Daily Blog.   They seem to want
    me to give them a thought or two each day.  About what?    Well,
    we'll just have to wait and see.  As, I see it, a blog is a personal
    statement.  I will try to make it entertaining and relate it mostly to the
    stock market. 

   I do promise not to belabor the obvious. So, I hope these thoughts,
   reflections and finds are worth your time.  I will give you my best

   As it fills up, it will be organized by month and topic  
   Look for something new most every day.  If you find
   it helpful, buy something from us.  You'll be glad you did.
   Tiger could easily be one the best investments you ever made.

        An End of The War in Iraq WIll Be Bullish!

As I begin this "blog", I do want to say that  I think Bush's invasion of Iraq
was and is a colossal blunder and tragedy for America.  I thought this long
before he initiated the invasion.  You see I had read the Pentagon Papers
from back in 1970 and I had met George Bush several times,  He was
when I met him years ago, by far the most arrogant man I had ever met.

This is not a political blog.  I note this because Peace will be very bullish
for the stock market.. You see I am writing a new Peerless manual that will
relate changes in the DJI prices from 1915 to 2007 to both our technical analysis
and political and economic events.  The primary intent is to demonstrate how
our Peerless technical tools anticipate both prices and events.  But look at
how the stock market behaved after the ending of the four big wars of the 20th
Century.  The evidence is pretty conclusive: peace will be very bullish
for the stock market.

     The Allies and Germany signed an armistice on November 11, 1918. The
DJI was then.86.60.  At the end of October 1919, it rose to a high of 120.

     VE day occurred on May 8, 1945 with the DJI at 166.40.  VJ took place
on August 15, 1945 with the DJI at 164.40.. At the end of May 1946,
it reached 212.

     The Korean War Armistice was signed on July 27, 1953.  The DJI was then
at 268.50. The next year, 1954, was up all year and ended with the DJI above

     In September 1974 Congress reduced funding for the US war in Viet Nam.
On April 23, 1975 President Ford publicly declared "finished"  the US involvement
with the war in Viet Nam,   At the end of 1974 the DJI stood at 602.  On
April 23rd, 1975, it had risen to 802.  By May 11, 1976, a year later, it had
reached 1006. 

        A Joke for Those Who Like Math and Waitresses

The stock market and our various trading systems are doing just fine now
So, I will turn to something more personal. Here is a good joke. 
I like jokes that poke fun at arrogance and eliteism in all their forms...     

"Two mathematicians were having dinner in a restaurant, arguing about the average
mathematical knowledge of the American public. One mathematician claimed that this
average was woefully inadequate, the other maintained that it was surprisingly high.

"I'll tell you what," said the cynic, "ask that waitress a simple math question. If she gets
it right, I'll pick up dinner. If not, you do." He then excused himself to visit the men's
room, and the other called the waitress over.

"When my friend comes back," he told her, "I'm going to ask you a question, and
I want you to respond `one third x cubed.' There's twenty bucks in it for you." She agreed.

The cynic returned from the bathroom and called the waitress over. "The food was wonderful,
thank you," the mathematician started. "Incidentally, do you know what the integral of x squared is?"

The waitress looked pensive; almost pained. She looked around the room, at her feet, made
gurgling noises, and finally said, "Um, one third x cubed?"

So the cynic paid the check. The waitress wheeled around, walked a few paces away, looked back
at the two men, and muttered under her breath, "...plus a constant."

   How Would The Stock Market React To Bush's Impeachment?

, 1974 and DJI Fell 30% by December.

   Is Bush More of A Threat To The "Rule of Law" Than Nixon?

           If Carl Bernstein is Correct that the Bush's Administration Has Hurt America Much More
           Than Nixon's, then the US stock market should go up, not down, soon after his removal.  .

   January 24, 2007 4:00 PM ET  -   NEW YORK In an online chat at washingtonpost.com
   on Wednesday afternoon, Carl Bernstein, the famed Watergate reporter at that paper and
   now writing articles for Vanity Fair, took several hard shots at the current Bush administration
   -- almost every time he was asked about the Nixon era. It came just as news of the death of
    former Watergate ringleader E. Howard Hunt was circulating widely...

    After a long explanation of how the American system "worked," eventually, with Watergate,
    Bernstein said:  "In the case George W. Bush, the American system has obviously failed --
    tragically -- about which we can talk more in a minute. But imagine the difference in our
    worldview today, had the institutions -- particularly of government -- done their job to ensure
    that a mendacious and dangerous president (as has since been proven many times over, beyond
    mere assertion) be restrained in a war that has killed thousands of American soldiers, brought
    turmoil to the lives of millions, and constrained the goodwill towards the United States in much
   of the world."

   Later, asked if the Nixon administration was unique in hiring disreputable characters, he replied:
   "Until the Bush-43 administration, I had believed that the Nixon presidency was sui generis (unique) in
    modern American history in terms of your question...

     "In terms of small-bore (but dangerous) characters like Howard Hunt and Gordon Liddy
      with their schemes, I doubt that any presidency approaches the criminality of the Nixon White House.
      But the Watergate conspiracy--to undermine the constitution and use illegal methods to hurt
      Nixon's political opponents and even undermine the electoral system--was supervised by those
      at the very top.

      "In the current administration we have seen from the President down -- especially Vice President
       Cheney, Attorney General Gonzales, Condoleeza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld -- a willingness to ignore
       the great constitutional history of the United States -- to suspend, really, many of the constitutional
       guarantees that have made us a nation apart, with real freedoms unknown elsewhere, unrestricted
      by short-term political objectives of our leaders.

       "Then there are the Geneva conventions: Who would have dreamed that, in our lifetime, our leaders
        would permit their flagrant abuse, would authorize torture, 'renditions' to foreign-torture chambers,
        suspension of habeus corpus, illegal surveillance of our own citizens....

        "But perhaps worst, has been the lying and mendacity of the president and his men and women--
         in the reasons they cited for going to war, their conduct of the war, their attempts to smear their
        political opponents.

        "Nixon and his men lied and abused the constitution to horrible effect, but they were stopped.

         "The Bush Administration -- especially its top officials named above and others familiar to most
          Americans -- was not stopped, and has done far greater damage. As a (Republican) bumper-sticker
          of the day proclaimed, 'Nobody died at Watergate.' If only we could say that about the era of
          George W. Bush, and that our elected representatives in Congress and our judiciary had been
           courageous enough to do their duty and hold the President and his aides accountable."

           Bernstein was also asked about the CIA leak case and the leaking of Valerie Plame's name,
           which he called "a truly Nixonian event, a happenstance not atypical of the take-no-prisoners politics
           of the Bush presidency. But it pales in comparison to the larger questions of the Constitution,
           of life and death, of the Geneva conventions, of the expectation that our leaders -- from Condoleeza
           Rice to Dick Cheney, to the attorney(s) general to Paul Wolfowitz and on down and up the line
           speak truthfully to the American people and the Congress. They have consistently failed to do so."
       Perhaps, The Best Bush Joke

Bush and Cheney were sitting in a bar.
A guy walked in and asked the barman, "Isn't that Bush and Cheney?"
The barman said, "Yep, that's them."
So the guy walked over and said, "Hello. What are you guys doing?"
Bush said, "We're planning World War III."
The guy asked, "Really? What's going to happen?"
Cheney said, "Well, we're going to kill 10 million Iranians and one little blond girl"
The guy exclaimed, "Why are you gonna kill a little blond girl?!"
Cheney turned to Bush and said, "See, I told you no one would worry about the 10 million Iranians!"
