I see the headlines about this kind of thing... Have read very little about it.. What little I have read leads me to believe that from past experience with the stock market, Freddy Mac, Jenny May, the Euro and other things like that...

There is now signs of predictability in fluctuations of these things.. They do roll-a-coaster as a normal part of there "life cycle".... By now there should be no more blind side crashes with these, if anyone is paying attention...

I guess my thought is if you are depending on one or more of these to build, maintain your financial foundation..... Your taking your chances...

Like going to the casino... Your taking your chances...
Don't complain if it don't work out....

I suppose linking something, anything to September makes it easier to sell newspapers...

My 2 cents..

I have often wondered if these fluctuations, "self corrections" I've heard them called, are little more than a "harvest" of money in these systems by those who control/manage these systems... The small investor, least influential participant, least able to defend themselves in the system seems the most vulnerable.

Ummm... Maybe the govt/either party hasn't done any deliberate efforts to aid to let these fluctuations/harvests happen... But being the govt is so closely related/controls to the Federal Reserve and a lot of other of these systems, just turning a blind eye, or closed ear at a given moment would be a big advantage for this kind of thing to happen....
KnowwhatImean...
More details of my 2 cents....

I got a call yesterday from a couple of old buddies (played ball with 'em- excellent pitchers, one a lefty, one a righty) who had heard something about a Sept crisis, and knowing I was into prepping and such, wanted to get my take on it. They had read that those famous Walmart stores that had been closed down for "plumbing problems" were actually being prepped with secret underground truck access tunnels and roofs installed with razor wire- all in cooperation and funding from the feds.

Anybody got the dope on this? I gave them the address here and asked them to post their reference, but so far I don't see their activity. Maybe they couldn't see this thread, lost in the shuffle.

Calling Lefty & Righty...Come in please. Over?

I have heard nothing about secret Wal Mart things: what is going on with a September crisis I have not heard about that, either. What is supposed to cause it? I have read on this thread general anxiety about September, but I have not heard of anything specific.

IMHO, things look more economically stable to me. Greece is getting some sympathy from the EU, and so that can will probably be kicked down the road, and while China appears to be struggling they seem t0 think they can deal with it themselves. I believe things will settle down until somebody else says "OMG!". then folks will worry some more.

Personally, every time I get anxious I count over my own preps: very soothing!

Doc
Seems lot of rumors on internet. Walmart it seems they say will reopen those stores before the Xmas season. You can call your order in and come pick it up. Guess it is wait and see.

Me, winter will come for sure. Always has, some times mild some times very bad.
