austin tx plane crash, courtesy of tbi, apThis is not the sort of thing you want to report on.

But I need to, because what looked like an accident originally – a horrible accident, with a plane on approach that had some sort of mechanical problem - now looks to be something else.

AUSTIN, TX (myFOXaustin) – A small aircraft plane has crashed into a 7-story office building in North Austin near Mopac and 183. The plane crashed into the Echelon building around 10 a.m. Thursday morning. Police have blocked off access roads around the building.

….

According to Corp. Scott Perry with APD several federal offices were located inside the building that was struck by the plane.  Officials with NTSB say that IRS offices were some of the federal offices.

CNBS is reporting that there is "no indication that this was an act of terrorism or otherwise intentional."  Oh really?  Then how come CNBC is claiming on-air that the man involved set fire to his own house first?  Oh, and Fox News just stated that the name of the pilot was…. Mr. Joe Stack.

Uh…. what’s this?

I know I’m hardly the first one to decide I have had all I can stand.  It has always been a myth that people have stopped dying for their freedom in this country, and it isn’t limited to the blacks, and poor immigrants.  I know there have been countless before me and there are sure to be as many after.  But I also know that by not adding my body to the count, I insure nothing will change.  I choose to not keep looking over my shoulder at “big brother” while he strips my carcass, I choose not to ignore what is going on all around me, I choose not to pretend that business as usual won’t continue; I have just had enough.

I can only hope that the numbers quickly get too big to be white washed and ignored that the American zombies wake up and revolt; it will take nothing less.  I would only hope that by striking a nerve that stimulates the inevitable double standard, knee-jerk government reaction that results in more stupid draconian restrictions people wake up and begin to see the pompous political thugs and their mindless minions for what they are.  Sadly, though

The Day The Music Died, 51 Years Ago Today

The Day The Music Died, 51 Years Ago Today

Courtesy of Joshua M Brown, The Reformed Broker

Their music was before my time, but it was part of my early childhood’s soundtrack as Mom and Dad shuttled me from little league games to soccer matches with 101.1 CBS FM blaring from our Pontiac’s radio speakers. 

That fateful plane crash was 51 years ago today. 

From the Long Island Press 

Today, 51 years ago, was “The Day the Music Died,” the phrase immortalized in American folk singer/songwriter Don McLean’s 1972 hit “American Pie.” Buddy Holly, who died in a plane crash 51 years ago today, on Feb. 3, 1959, with his pilot and fellow rock and rollers Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson. The tragedy is immortalized in singer/songwriter Don McLean’s 1972 hit "American Pie." 

The tune has been called a metaphor for the loss of innocence in America, inspired by, and about, the untimely deaths of rock and rollers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson, Jr. They were killed in a plane crash Feb. 3, 1959 along with the plane’s pilot, Roger Paterson, in a snowy field in the middle of Iowa just a short while after 1 a.m. 

Here’s Buddy Holly…

Under a new banner – that of Inclusive Capital Partners – he will have plenty of surprises up his sleeve and may face a few himself as he battles to change the way investors think about valuing companies and steer them away from short-term ac...

Silver Headed Back To $50, Top Of The Cup & Handle Pattern?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Could Silver be creating a multi-decade bullish “Cup & Handle” pattern? Possible!

Did a retest of a handle breakout take place in March at (1), where Silver created one of the largest bullish reversals in decades? Possible!

Could Silver be creating a 40-year bullish pattern? Anything is possible! I humbly have to say share this; I’ve been in the business for 40-years and I haven’t seen anything like this.

Silver looks to have double topped back in 2011 at $50, which was the 1980 highs. After double topping, Silver ...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

Courtesy of Lee Adler, WallStreetExaminer 

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
