Tuesday, November 6, 2012 – I Voted Today

I Voted Today by Sinclair Noe DOW + 133 = 13,245SPX + 11 = 1428NAS + 12 = 301110 YR YLD +.06 = 1.74% OIL + 2.80 = 88.45GOLD + 31.90 = 1717.90SILV + .84 = 32.12 Normally, I spend the first couple of hours of each day throwing back some coffee and reading, maybe a little writing. Not today. I still had a cup of mud, but I showered fast and headed out the door. I drove to the local high school and I voted. I like going to the polls on election day. It’s more satisfying than mailing the ballot in early. And I like going to the local school to vote. Even though it was early morning, there were several young students on the campus. They saw people going into the polling place, and I hope it made them think about the process. I missed the crowds. I think many voters were dropping off kids at the school and then going inside to vote, but I beat the rush, if there was a rush. I didn’t see any lines. Maybe that means something about the outcome or the voting patterns; I don’t know what. I put my ballot into a ballot scanning machine, and a poll worker said “thank you” and he handed me a sticker that reads: “I Voted Today”. I stuck it on my shirt and told the fellow “thank you.” I felt good, I felt like a citizen. Yes, I know my one little …

Monday, November 5, 2012 – There is a Light at the End of the Tunnel

There is a Light at the End of the Tunnel by Sinclair Noe DOW + 19 = 13,112SPX + 3 = 1417NAS + 17 = 299910 YR YLD -.04 = 1.68%OIL +.85 = 85.71GOLD + 8.10 = 1686.00SILV + .27 = 31.28 Tomorrow it will all be over, maybe; unless, it is too close to call, in which case, it might drag out interminably or it might be decided early tomorrow evening. The latest Reuters/Ipsos poll has Obama leading Romney 50% to 46% for the presidency of Ohio. If that holds up, then it’s a done deal; unless it isn’t. I think there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. Election 2012 has been relentless; it seems like it has been going on forever. This is the season of discontent, no matter which side you support. In the October 2008 jobs report the economy lost 500,000. This month we gained about 170,000 and there were positive revisions for the previous two months. The future looks bright, but grim at the same time. A new report from the National Employment Law Project says that since 2001, employment has grown 8.7 percent in lower-wage jobs and 6.6 percent in high-wage ones but they’ve fallen more than 7% in mid-wage jobs. The situation since the financial Crisis of 2008 is similar: jobs in the mid-range paying $14 to $21 accounted for 60% of jobs lost but only 22% of the job gained while lower wage jobs paying a median wage …
