Sorry to burst your buboes, but you have the Plague, America World. One unfortunate thing about being humble and depressed for so long - you end up being right, constantly. That is just another way of saying that nobody listens to you. So, yes, I was right when I predicted the Retail collapse, as I was when I predicted the 2008 crash in 2006. It's unfortunate that I continue to be thought of as insane, which we are not, we are perfectly sane no we're not yes we are shut up why I OUGHTTA!!! I should pat myself on the back, publicly, more often, and stop using Chinese hexagrams, and then maybe people will listen. Like when I say that we are headed for currency wars, rising inflation, rising values in precious in-hand metals, and a vast devastating derivatives crash which will leave you about as wealthy as an Irish potato farmer during the blight, while the Chinese arrive on our shores in giant shipping containers, panning for gold. Wait 'til you hear about how the middle of the country is going to sink under water, because Atlantis was never in the past. This is the dawning of the age blub blub blub blub-blub ...
