Let know when you are going to move to the MoFN in Idaho or Montana to ride this out in digust and I'll drive down for a visit. We can drink from the still and shoot weaps!

@ Calgary,

I was thinking someplace a little warmer, more tropical, more, clothing optional, than Montana/Idaho, but appreciate the suggestion

Ignoring the pain doesn't make sense.

You know what else doesn't make sense?

Why would a Wookiee, an eight-foot tall Wookiee, want to live on Endor, with a bunch of two-foot tall Ewoks? That does not make sense!

None of this makes sense 1-2.

Unless... [approaches and softens]it has something to do with Mayo.

It seems oil price hitting the $147.50 mark then crashing, is mentioned often without much analysis in the MSM.

I would suggest a hint could be found if one were to give consideration to the simultaneous announcement by Goldman of an impending $200 per barrel prediction.

.....Nice head fake worthy of a Superbowl ring, but with so much more cash attached.

Completely agree with you. Honestly, I don't think there is a painless solution; we HAVE to go through a period of extreme depression if we want to deleverage. One less painful solution would be for countries with lower leverage (such as ones in Asia) to start buying our assets, but I can't see that happening (doesn't mean it's impossible though).

What's also scary is that U.S. and Europe are basically wholly dependent upon countries in Asia and South America and other developing countries to sustain our outrageous leverage (which is going up as the government gives out more and more money to stimulate the economy). And Asia is being supported by the outrageous (leveraged) spending from the U.S. and Europe. As long as everyone keeps spending, it's sustainable, but as soon as one leg collapses (U.S. going into recession), the bubble is burst.
