    Mercedes-Benz said it sold more cars last month in the United States than it had in any July in five years





    They better buy them with bullet proof siding.


    The economy is about to tank again and people are going to be real mad.

    A couple of grand-nieces came to visit us last weekend. Naturally, they wanted to go to the city to go shopping. While they were over at Abercrombies, Mrs Clean and I ducked into Bergdorf Goodmans to get out of the heat and snoop around. There were plenty of $400 sport shirts and $800 pants, but the real kicker was the $525 pair of men's swim trunks.

    No kidding. A $525 pair of mens' swim trunks! I like to think that rich people are, among other things, smart. But who in their right mind would buy a pair of $525 swim trunks?

    This is a very bad sign that the economy is in serious trouble.

    People put their money where they feel it will get the most personal return. Investing in a business is now seen as a waste of time and the best thing to do with their money is self indulgence. For the big believers in Aynne Rand, this is a sign we are entering Gault's Gulch, where the productive part of society has just decided to take their marbles and go home, leaving the dependent part of society to their own devices.

    Seems like a relativly good sign that things are turning around.

    I hope.



    Loving the class envy on display here. Especially the post where they should fear for thier lives. Just love when wanna be tyrants let one slip.
