Coincidence…or?

From Ace:

Um…The NYSE Is Shutdown Because…Um, No One Seems To Know Why

 

Update:We’ll see.

I’m watching CNBC and it seems all the terminals are down on the floor. No one knows what happened but the trading system seems to be down.

Pretty sure there was a Tom Clancy novel about this.

Um…The NYSE Is Shutdown Because…Um, No One Seems To Know Why.

Interesting on the same day that United is grounded because of computer problems as well. could easily be coincidence, of course, but it could also be malicious. by either individuals or a hostile state.

Bears watching, I would think.

  1. These are the new Pearl Harbors of our time and it does not take a national state to attack us this way. Last week Time Warner cable was out for about 8 hours in Greensboro, NC. No TV, no phone, no internet. It was scary esp no phone part. Looks like people better have a significant amount of money stashed at home if there is a long lasting black out. Looks like the people that have guns, plenty of ammo, food and water stored are no so crazy after all.

      I agree, and remember that an EMP attack will shut it all down, including all motor vehicle after about a 1975 build date. Scary times.

  2. That’s that above ground detonation for magnetic grid right? The first place to which people will flee is ATMs and they won’t work. A country so attacked would have no choice but to surrender or fight house to house Churchill reference there. I usta keep coupla gallons of bottled water and at least a dozen cans of food stored. I think I do that again. It’s ironic that people usta think that’s silly. We did it in Miami during the Cuban missile crisis.

      Yeah, way high, essentially on the edge of space, doesn’t take a very big bomb either. That’s one of the main reasons that Iran concerns me so. if you want to live in the 7th century, well, why not?

        And look see here. I got a old ’79 Blazer with a circuit board in the distributor. I could get an old points and condenser thingy put in pretty easy, but no mechanic here knows how to or does rebuild a quadrajet carb. Then where do I go in it? Will gas stations work? And if I got the last can of spam on the block, what happens then? Eat gold and bullets? Our cat we took in as stray knows how to catch a rabbit, I saw her do that, she’ll survive, if it rains.
        Point is we got to keep it all together people. Even with LIV folks. Somehow.

          Exactly, it’d be bad, in ways we can’t imagine, better to protect ourselves from having to go there.

    • NEO that opens idea for another post: We ought to be fighting ISIS and all Islamist terrorism and even Islamic customs with the words
      of Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine et al. Our beliefs should be so much more attractive and sensible. Women’s rights advocacy should be much more vocal too. That would bring great change starting in merely household relationships.

        I agree, that’s why I’m so strident sometimes. We’re a heckova lot better than they are, and anybody that disagrees…well either they have another motive, or they’re fools.

  4. I’m in . . . yay! I think I will disregard the official explanations that will come from Washington. I think that this administration does not want to be embarrassed again and they will spin whatever story that will misdirect our attention from them.

      • Well I might finally bite the bullet and order a years supply of food and store water and water filters. I’ve held out for a while now but am losing all hope that this bunch in Washington is competent enought to avoid a large scale disaster.

    Just imagine all the traffic lights going out for one day. Which will be the worst; traffic congestion or no new theft on the JSE for one day? Ike

    Such catastrophe we taking about now. Our leaders foolish to think the way to fight is with ideas. The idea is to do something, action, not think about it with ideas.
    I prepared for Y2K. Generator, gas, food and water. Food was bought from Co-op, oats, wheat , grains and a grinder. Propane to cook by. Co-op food put up in about 30 gallon pool granular chlorine plastic containers rinsed real well, two holes drilled in top then top sealed to barrel with acrylic Then into one hole nitrogen gas vented into and atmospheric oxygen purged out the other. Holes plugged with acrylic at that time. (It finally became animal food.)
    Well the Generac came in handy in ’04 for Hurricane Ivan, and ’05 for Katrina. I protected mine. Other folks had “thugs” bring a lawnmower in started up to mask the noise in the night and “thugs” then carting off the generator.
    Folks, there are plenty of resources, we got to get freeloaders up and working, doing something. Even with robots doing jobs one day, not even can they meet the demand of takers.
    Yes prepare what you can. Now I too old to get much more than spam and some water. 🙂
