Disclaimer was a joy to read. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better....he comes up with a new one.
Thanks, Billmon

...but it does not mention anti-government groups, white supremacists and other radical right-wing movements, which have staged numerous terrorist attacks that have killed .

Curious omission. A couple months ago did a google thing on the "survivalists", those backwoods and milita types so worried about black helicopters and government takeovers ala Waco, to see if their paranoia in the Clinton era has carried over to the new Patriot Act Bush world. As you probably figured, not a chance -- seems their tin foil hats only work against Democratic mind control.

The Aryan Nations types being left out is really bizaare, considering, they not only envision themselves to be actively engaged in warfare right now, consider terrorism a ligitimate method of action, and are openly sympathetic to Osama Bin Laden and the cause of Al-Queda.

Re - Disclaimer. The past is usually an indicative of future performance - until it's not!

I heartly recommend this book on this topic:

Fooled by Randomness: The Hidden Role of Chance in Life and in the Markets by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.

Just a random thought, helped into being by Billmon's newly found brilliance (his past performance is in no way connected to my failings, of course): Could it be that we are all simply suffering from the time lag between the catastrophe and its inevitable consequence, i.e., the implosion of the empire? Wile E. Coyote still looking down before the fall? Perhaps the world is just holding its breath for what must come, which will be very ugly. Bushco running on empty, on the image of the US that was.
