10-days ago sign was DEFACED.

Claims the reprobate, disgraced-cardinal requested that his name was removed. IF that is the case, it would be but sour-grapes. The writing was on the wall, already, so to speak.

The sign was well and truly vandalized 10-days ago. So there was no secret as to how some felt about it.

This is good. His name should only appear in one place NOW — on a police blotter as he is booked in.

That he continues to ponce around is a disgrace to society. A man with no morals, no contrition & NO SHAME.

Pennsylvania Colleges Removing Names Of Catholic Bishops Accused In Sex Abuse CRIMES.

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE. From NPR.


Yesterday we saw, alas, vandalism out of sheer frustration.

Today, we see sanity and common-sense finally beginning to prevail. This, however, is but a small, firststep. So, much needs to be done. Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and priest need to be fired and where possible sent to prison.

The three bishops whose names are being expunged are: Jerome Hannan, James Timlin and J. Carroll McCormick — all three bishops of Scranton, PA, at various times.

Baby steps ….

But, a decent, moral start.

It is a shame they had to resort to this. It is vandalism and somebody could get charged. But, you can understand the anger and frustration.

The authorities knew that there were those HURT, upset and perplexed. They should have done something … right at once, when the damning Pennsylvania Clerical Sex Abuse report came out last week. Oh, no. They waited. Now this. Yes, there are petitions.

Donald Wuerl is no cardinal. He is no pastor and he surely isn’t a man. If (and that is so rhetorical) he had any shame or conscience would have asked the school to take down the name. Oh, NO. He is holier than thou though his hands are covered in ‘blood’.

It is beyond the pale. How these criminals are allowed to get away with it.

Yes, I am upset. I am a parent. Two of my kids grew up Catholic.

Pope Francis Knows That Words Are Cheap & That U.S. Catholics Are Gullible & Meek.

Today’s letter from Pope Francis to the U.S. Catholics about Catholic Clerical Sex Abuse was a masterpiece in obfuscation.

Francis is playing the U.S. Catholics like Nero playing the fiddle.

This Pope, all talk, no trousers, does NOTHING … just yada, yada, yada …

Folks, they are LAUGHING at YOU at the Vatican.

So, gullible. So meek — and NO, you will not inherit the world.

Francis could have fired a couple of Cardinals. Now that would show some real contrition and courage.

Francis has no courage. He is a weak, pretentious, spineless man.

The U.S. Catholics must stand up.

Stop giving the Church all that money. That is the only thing that will get their attention.

U.S. Catholics Have Absolute Power To Make U.S. Cardinals Resign & For Francis To Take Notice!

by Anura Guruge



Cut this rank nonsense. The U.S. Catholics, if they weren’t so SCARED to stand-up to the ‘church’, could do so, so much to get a meaningful resolution to the absolutely disgusting sex crimes committed on children by Catholic clerics.

For God SAKE stop giving the Church MONEY.

Jesus wept.

On one hand they wring their hands, and on the other, they can’t wait to give money to the Church.

Yes, the age old weakness the Church has exploited for millenia. The belief that giving money to the Church will wash away your sins.

The Catholic Church only worships one thing and one thing ALONE. Money, money, money — especially US dollars.

If the U.S. Catholics just STOP, just for ONE SUNDAY, giving the Church all that money they will stop and take notice.

Francis will be on Twitter saying “OK, which U.S. Cardinals do you want gone”.

This hypocriticism that the U.S. Catholics are powerless MUST STOP.

They have all the power in their grubby paws.

STOP the money.

Please. Just stop for ONE day. This Sunday.

Simple as that.

Though I got out, TOTALLY, from Junk Bonds in mid-May of this year, after living off them for nearly 6 years, this sent a CHILL through my spine.

IF I had still been in Junk Bonds, and at this time last year, my life depended on them, this would have been SCARY. A STOP on withdrawals is bad at any time BUT particularly so at year end. Folks have taxes to pay, e.g., Property Taxes in New Hampshire, or have need to do some rebalancing for Capital Gains etc. WOW.

So a heads up. It has, with interest rates ready to rise, been a bad year for junk. I am surprised that there is till anybody in them. I just worry that those that are in are those that are OBLIVIOUS that they are in — and that is the dastardly deed of unscrupulous brokers.

So a BIG Heads Up. Get out, with what little you have left, as fast as you can.

BJBHX chart from MarketWatch.

Click to ENLARGE and stare in awe here. It was May 13, 2015 when I told YOU that I was finally getting the heck out of BJBHX.


Last night on Marketwatch I happened to see an article whose headline was “Deteriorating Junk Bonds …“. I was very glad that I was NO LONGER in junk bonds — having lived off them for nearly 6 years after the 2008 Financial Crisis. Since BJBHX was my prime instrument for exploiting junk bonds I had a hankering to see how it was doing — though I knew that it could NOT be doing too well given that junk bonds have taken a hammering this year.

I was sickened by what I saw — i.e., the CHART above.

WOW. WOW. WOW!

Am I glad that I finally bailed out in mid-May 2015. Best thing I have done in years.

I did tell YOU to do the same. I reiterated that in September. IF you are still in BJBHX I feel bad for you. I have NOT checked the ex-DIV dates BUT if the Capital Gains are still in the fund GET OUT TODAY. Salvage what you can.

My fear is that many of you might be in BJBHX via a broker and not even KNOW that you are bleeding money like there is no tomorrow.


When I extracted everything I had in BJBHX I had to find a place to park it.

I also need to be able to make money from OPTIONS to make up for the income I was losing from BJBHX.

So not knowing any better I put all the BJBHX money into AMZN!

SMILE.

We Were Randomly Picked For The U.S. Census, Mandatory, ‘American Community Survey’ — Fancy That?

Yes, fancy that. Just like how I would get randomly picked, 100% of time, for the 2nd security pat down at the gate, when flying after 9/11. Yep. Real coincidence.

It was as with the 2010 U.S. Census. I think they came around a dozen times and I am sure they secretly videotaped us. “Wow, a non-white guy, this far NORTH in New Hampshire and he claims that he evens owns a house”. We have to document this and keep tabs on him. Well, it wasn’t as bad as I first moved to New Hampshire in 1986 and moved to a rural community, which prior to my arrival, had been 100% white for 200 years. In 1997 I was told by a lady, in Meredith, that I was the FIRST NON-WHITE person that her 9-year old daughter had ever seen!

Yep, picked at random. Look. Look. A flying pig.

The survey is dead keen to know three things.

1/ Whether you have ANY Latino in you and IF so how you got here. I am not kidding. They are paranoid as to whether you might have some Latino in you. WOW.

2/ Whether you have health insurance and how you got it.

3/ How much money you make and how you make it.

Talk about intrusive and blatant. I bet Republicans will love this. Jee, they ask DIG. Surprised that they didn’t ask me about my sex life.

But they, probably because of ‘Mittens‘, also seem very anxious to determine whether you are bigamist. They ask you all these questions as to whether you are (during the last 12 months) married, divorced, widowed etc and do it in such a way that it sure looks like they are trying to trip you up. Also wants to know how many times you have been married. I JUST managed to creep in under the wire.

Not a fun survey. Very scary. But I did it. I had no option. I know they would come and get me IF I didn’t respond. Said so on the envelope. Looked like it was scrawled in blood. “This is the LAW. You better respond IF you know what is good for you”.

Just a heads up.

I feel bad, real bad, for those that are still in BJBHX. With interest rates set to go up and the stock market taking a beating there is only one way that the BJBHX NAV was going to go and that was NOT upwards. BJBHX kept me afloat during the worst of the 2008 – 2012 financial crisis. I do not know what I would have done if not for BJBHX. But that was then, and this is now. I always knew that 2015, with interest rates bound to go up, was going to be painful for BJBHX. That said I hung on to it, albeit with a reduced holding, until May 2015. I then bailed and I am so glad I did. I invested all of my BJBHX holdings in AMZN and have been writing options against the stock. SMILE. Sure beats BJBHX.

I did tell you to bail, with me, in May. The NAV was $9.77 then. It is $9.17 today. A 6% drop in 6 months. That can be painful.

From what I can see the only rationale for staying with BJBHX is IF you have need to lose some serious money. Well, some people do — to offset huge Capital Gains or reduce their nett worth. BJBHX is the perfect instrument, these days, to achieve that. It will help you lose money with style. IF you are not that keen about losing money then BJBHX is NO LONGER for you. Their run, and it was good in the glory days when junk bonds were king, is now over. So I am just trying to help you. OK?

Best of luck. Fingers crossed for Thursday. I actually want the Feds to raise the damn interest rates. Lets move on. Get it out of the way. This slow drip-drip wait is a waste of time. Yes, a volatile market is fun but it is also nice to see the market chugging upwards.
