People get the government they deserve!
People get the government they deserve! Ohio voters gave in to the public employee unions on question #2 and
repudiated ObamaCare on question #3. I guess Ohio taxpayers don't mind going broke at the expense of public
employee unions and scaring away employers. Will they live to regret it?

W. D. Gann, a keen market observer, although not an astronomer, nevertheless, was fascinated by the apparent
coincidence of important market 'pivot points' and astronomical dates. Theories exist for estimating time and
price of important market turning points but astronomical occurrences are computed with mathematical certainty.
There is no logical reason why these occurrences should coincide yet, empirically, they have.
The 'Full Moon' and 'New Moon', among others, have been cited. Therefore, one might be well advised to be aware
of their occurrence. Note: The first 5 business days of 2008 concluded on a 'New Moon' and we all know how that
worked out. Coincidence?
11/10 Thursday - Full Moon. (The european financial crisis will dominate, IMO).
11/25 Friday - New Moon.
