Ribbit, I agree that the reader's mindset can affect interpretation, but when Gen starts the Ticker with this paragraph, and ends it with a video of the cometary destruction of NYC, I think it's easy to see how many of the huge readership of this piece might become acutely alarmed:|
Just so you have a short list of what's at stake if Washington DC doesn't change policy here and now (which means before the collapse in equities comes, which could start as soon as today, if the indicators I watch have any validity at all. For what its worth, those indicators are painting a picture of the Apocalypse that I simply can't believe, and they're showing it as an imminent event - like perhaps today imminent.)
Look: No one is slammimg Gen here. His foresight and analysis have saved my family's financial ass, and I am deeply in his debt. He has been almost completely spot on about this crisis so far, and I'm afraid that he is probably right about the nightmare described in this Ticker, too.
He is doing the right thing by trying to warn people about what he considers imminent events, and while I hope he won't stop offering his advice, I also hope he doesn't lose a larger audience by trying to call the date and time too precisely. Nobody can, and like anyone he needs to stay credible to remain effective. That's why I thought Alchemista asked a fair question.
It's an awful balancing act and the stress of all this must be unbelievable. I wouldn't be able to do it.
