This is going to get good.

Apple is apparently going to be added to the Dow Jones 30 with AT&T being removed.

Given what I believe is going to be a colossal flop with the iWatch, and the forward expectations built into Apple's stock price, the opportunity to short this index is going to become very ripe, and quite soon.

I love it when things like this happen...... the timing is frequently exquisite as a contrary indicator.

"Real wages are growing at a 5.1% pace."  -- Current CNBS guest.

Oh really?  CPI eh?  Inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomena.

Stop propagating garbage and start challenging people like this, CNBS!  The factual income .vs. monetary inflation figures are trivially computable from the Personal Income and Spending tables along with the Fed Z1, and I do so (and present said data) every quarter.  Where is the pushback when obvious nonsense is being spewed by your so-called "guests", all of whom you select to appear on air?

CNBS: First In smiley Worldwide.

10.3.2, next update coming, appears to have full S/MIME support.

Unconfirmed at this moment, but it appears so.

Sorry Android.....

The Justice Department plans to announce it will not be filing federal civil rights charges against George Zimmerman, the Florida man who was acquitted last year of second-degree murder for shooting Trayvon Martin, an unarmed teenager.

Both forensic evidence and direct testimony showed that:

  • Martin was on top of Zimmernan at the time he was shot; ballistics confirmed the angle of the shot and the angular relationships of the persons at the time the weapon was discharged.

  • Martin pounded Zimmerman's head against a concrete sidewalk, leaving physical evidence of the injury to the back of Zimmerman's head; an injury that could not have happened if the two were involved in a standing fist-fight that terminated when one of them was knocked to the ground.

  • Zimmerman was unable to escape as he had been mounted by Martin at the time the shot was fired.  This is the reason he did not raise a "stand your ground" defense; there was no ground to stand.

If you can "violate someone's civil rights" after they mount you, pinning you to the ground and are pummeling your head against a concrete sidewalk you have a different view of "civil rights" than I do.

The travesty is that it took three years for this announcement instead of it coming once a review of the forensics had confirmed what Zimmerman originally reported to be the case.

One note -- it appears that the announcement of a deal, if you actually read the text, was more about goosing the market than actually announcing an agreement.

Either way the move was foolish in the broad market.

Either Greece repudiates everything that the current government was elected to do, in which case the Greeks are fully-justified in immediately rising up either politically or otherwiseas the government will have documented that it is not in fact representing the people that just elected it or there is in fact no deal and the announcement was made purely to move the market -- that is, it was an outright fraud.

The only question if the Greek government betrays the people who elected it is whether they Greeks will rise up now and overthrow their government or whether they will do it via the ballot box and, I note, likely put in a Nazi party (Golden Dawn) through what are virtually-certain to be an immediate next round of elections, pending which there will be nothing of value accomplished legislatively in Greece.

The game is afoot.
