    Have you noticed anything odd going on this morning?

    ITEM: The New York City subway system suffered an atrocious commute today, with some trains being inexplicably stranded in stations for long periods of time.

    ITEM: The website “The Dissolve” folded today.

    ITEM: United Airlines was forced to ground all of its flights after its computer system mysteriously stopped working.

    ITEM: The New York Stock Exchange suspended trading today after its computerized trading system mysteriously stopped working.

    ITEM: Immediately after, the Wall Street Journal’s website mysteriously stopped working.

    ITEM: More than 2,500 people in Washington, DC mysteriously lost power.

    It seems our nation’s centers of powers are facing a mysterious and spreading collapse.

    You are so naughty BTPost. I think we can all finally agree (even if the government can't) that cyber warfare is now a proven fact and needs to be taken into consideration.

    Me thinks this was not the beginning and it is certainly is not the end.

    IMO we will be seeing more of these days. I think that we will see the market look like it is on a roller coaster.

    Just checked my 401k and it has not taken any hits, yet.

    But I made some moves that move things closer to under my mattress :)

    The night before the New York Stock Exchange temporarily suspended trading due to an “internal technical issue,” the hacker collective Anonymous had a cryptic message for Wall Street on Twitter.

    “Wonder if tomorrow is going to be bad for Wall Street…. we can only hope,” said the tweet posted at 11:45 p.m. Tuesday.

    This has only been a test.....should this have been a real shelter and wait for the collapse..... ;)

    IMO....I really do think this was a takes the focus off of China's woes and keeps the media on our issues. It would not suprise me if the Chinese are pulling levers to see what would happen on multiple avenues....cyber warfare is at hand.

    Bring it! Only true way to know if the plans are up to the challenge of reality. No safety net.

    Actually, I'm glad it's summer and growing season. ;)

    Yeah, crops burn so much easier when standing[sarc1]. I'd be happier after harvests are done. Less to lose to wanton destruction, or theft.

    Well the back and forth banter has been amusing. My desk top crashed this morning and my phone erased this post twice before I could finish.

    Coincidence ?

    Sorry. I have been down this road before:

    1) China is an authoritarian country. They will dump US treasuries to prop up their market. This will pass for them.
    2) Europe will kiss Greece's ass. They won't let he Euro go.
    3) NYSE and Anonymous, they may have knowledge of what is going on, but the powers will avert any collapse with printed cash.

    it is all rigged. still some years before it all goes "poof"
