on investment strategies for the 21st century. All chapters are worth reading online if you are a serious investor.

This guys strategy for the 21 century is looking in the rear view mirror at the 20 century.Won't work anymore.U.S. is crashing as we speak.Paper investments are out and real things are in.Everyone who has a pension plan is gonna lose.It's like this: the man says," Give ME your money now,no I mean I'm gonna take your money now but Ipromise,promise,I promise to take care of you when you're old.
Anyone who believes this,hey I got a bridge for sale. Sorry for the bearish outlook but if this post just wakes one person up to what is just beginning then that is good.

Wonder Why these guys are working for a salary
If their so smart?He's not investing anything,
just telling you how to.If you cut the BS and
dancing around the book would be about 1/2 the
size.He must get paid by the word.

Yup me too, Bob. Cell phones is the way to go. I got two and use them all the time. I like to call them banana buyers in NYC.

Jake I know you got yer PHD early on in publik scool. that idea of growing pineapples letting them freeze and forcin them like rubarb was good.
But you don't know half of this story. Joe dont' like phones unless they are wood and have a crank on the side , not the line,on the side, and an electrick fence batterie in side. You know the ones the old ladies on the party line liked to darn socks on the reciever and listen in on all the conversations at the same time, sorta like this interanalnet thing we'r on here. Well anyway here is the story. I thought it was so good I emailed him direct in NYC USA.Jake this is a true story, last friday on the way home from work on #7Hwy in a torrential rain storm I rounded a bend in the road, went under an overpass bridge at Bathurst st. and out of the sky as if directed by Cowboy Joe his own self a huge bolt of lightning came down from the sky, you guessed it, a direct hit on a CELL PHONE tower a half mile a head of me. That tower burned like a big firecracker, bright white for the duration of the strike, then burned down by throwing off big balls of the same white light. Don't know if they have party line cell phones but if they do all the people on the line and those listening in would have got quite an ear full. I figure with the storms we are going to have they are going to make a fortune just replacing the ones that get hit.

I like the punch line.

Joe I sent you an Email caus I thought you where out west,It's a true story but you can still use it on the radio. Do you think that your show will be on CBC they some times have shows like yours on SUN PM, hope so but we will likely bite the bullet and use the intranot.

Bob - I'm not leaving for AZ until June 30. I was told the fires and smoke have not affected, or should I say infected the Prescott area, at least not yet. I'de love to have my show carried by the CBC. However, I would need some person like you to spread the word. Would you like to be my Canadian PR rep? Meanwhile, it's the Net for now.

WOW!! That must have been something to see! Hmm, wonder if it's some kinda sign? I didn't mean to upset Cowboy Joe. I guess in a place like NYC they could real irritating, but around here they are very useful. Last year a neighbor boy about 14 fell out of a cab tractor and was run over by the disk and the tractor which for some unknown reason cut off with him under the crosscut disk. His left hand was cut off and part of his leg. He lay there for five hours before any one came to look for him. He still runs the same tractor and disk but now he carries a cell phone.

Jake no direspect for your neighbour and I'm glad he is okay. But goof proofing kinda gets to me sometimes. My dad in the 30's worked for a custom thrasher and ran a machine and a 15/30 McCormick Deering. He had to climb through the running belts and grease the babbet bearings every 15 min. That should make OSHA quivver it's the DARWIN EFFECT. Oh by the way do you thrash or combine those BANANAS? Pore Hogman was worried bout Chicano Binanno swatten and scratchin at the MANITOBA provincal birds:<)that migrated to the YUKON fields of yours.

Well, I agree with you on the goof proofing. Lots of people want somebody else to be responsible for everthing. Course as any politician knows we can't be trusted to make our own decisions.

GOSH JAKE what ever gave You such an idea as that? Last fall We bit tha bullet'n bought a new ATV. One of tha notices is"Tight turns on loose gravel at high speeds may cause loss of control resulting in overturn which may cause injury".
In retrospect,tha auther of that'un would fit right in with tha "Tri-Directional inverted backward drive super klackastron ETD" disscussion. Ya think mabe????

Don't know what brand of ATV u'ns purchased,but I'm fairly certain the same fellow what wrote your instructions,writes manuals for John Deere.Got a new round baler a few years back,the instructions devoted one whole page to explaining that round bales roll down hill and could do bad things to people and property.Shore glad I hung in there and finished thurd grade so's I could benefit from alla the research JD did on that subject.Betcha boots I'm a gonna read alla the stuff that comes with any future purchases.
Somebody up above mentioned that Darwin fella and his theory.Well I'm here to tell you,ol Charles got the theory down pat,onlyest trouble is,he got the direction wrong.We going backards,stedda forwards.

GEE WHIZ! Any comments on investing for the long haul?

Alvin-Va    Posted 06-23-2002 at 19:56:46       [Reply]  [No Email]
Gosh Joe,don't really know what to say.Tried to read bout that investing thing and my head got to hurtin something awfull,musta been all them big words.
Did ponder some on my own bout this long haul investing thing tho,come up with an idea.
Theres a Mr. Jake feller up in Kansas,been talkin bout what must be a powerfull big crop of nanners he done raised.Overheard him talkin bout callin people purt nigh alla way cross the country bout buying some,in your very own city to be exact.
Now heres what I was thinking.Them nanners gots to get to New York somesways,right?What iffn you was to invest in one of them big ol long haul trucks to travel in when you make your sojurn out West.After you get all relaxed and refreshed at that resort place,swing up to this Mr.Jakes place and cram that big ol long haul truck fulla them nanners and head back East.Gots to be good money in in it,see people doing it alla the time. Probably could pay for your whole trip.
Don't think this was zactly the long haul investing thing you was talkin bout,but it was all I could come up with on short notice.
