    RALLY TIME on WALL STREET … as DEBT ceiling “lite” may have been only way to compromise 2 strong positions
    The speaker pulled off a rare hat-trick to avoid DEBT ceiling just in time (although tax/FICA income is always coming in)
    Still, current patterns are unsustainable as GOVT continues to spend like there is no tomorrow
    DOW up 550+ and NASDAQ up 135 …. E-Z boys, save some of that dry powder for later rather than on relief rally today

    Remember what happened to ICARUS when he flew too high (from HOUSTON TX concert – lol) 🙂

    And another great live one from Randy California & company – incredible jam on every instrument

    All BEARS have retreated from WALL STREET back to top of their mtn.
    Even though a cautious investor & safely parked a little too early from VITAX to 100% in KASH after 25% Q1 gain
    There will always be downdrafts & corrections ahead. And hopefully we’ll see more middle ground
    The WALL STREET BULLS are on the run — and hopeful USA economy continues to hold up in months ahead 🙂
