A VISIONARY


vi·sion·ar·y/ˈviZHəˌnerē/Adjective: (esp. of a person) Thinking about or planning the future with imagination or wisdom: "a visionary leader".
Noun: A person with original ideas about what the future will or could be like.

Rarely does one have the opportunity in today's business world to see the rare combination of a leader/inventor/visionary that is able to navigate the cross currents of deception and betrayal that so characterize our current corrupt corporate world. I still recall when Jobs turned Apple over to Sculley...the much heralded CEO from Mickey Ds. It was duly noted in the press as a necessary and much needed step for Apple to take so that it could swim with the rest of the sharks on Wall Street. After all, Steve Jobs was the heart and soul of Apple but without a true Corporate leader of Sculley's pedigree Apple just could not grow. Well it did grow. It grew into a company of cameras and toasters......it became a joke. Sculley even managed to fire Jobs. Finally the coup de gras was Gil Amelio. Apple was flat on its back and had become a footnote in the world of computers by the time they brought Jobs back.

By now his genius was established with the development and success of several companies of his own. The rest was history with Apple. Without a doubt one of the most amazing turn arounds in history and also without a doubt due entirely to Jobs. He provided an inspiration to people that believe the evil empire can crush all human endeavors. He never gave up.

Job's contributions have affected people all over the world and elevated the human spirit. He loved his work and even as he fought for his life he maintained his love for his company and its people. Good luck to an extraordinary figure and may he go in peace in the remainder of his time on this earth.

  13. sorry Tom.......PM DID bounce off of resistance and held many of their original channels...ie...they could have another run right now ......but...usually you get a consolidation first after a move like this.

  16. Now hear from the extremely accurate Alf fields:

    “The good news is that once the anticipated correction has been completed, gold should commence intermediate Wave 3 of Major 3. This should be the longest and strongest up-wave of the entire Bull Market. Expect high volatility and very high prices during that up-wave.”

  17. End of the Icrap era? Now maybe instead of buying Icrap people can pay their credit card bills and mortgages.

  18. I have never seen such capitulation among people especially in outrageously undervalued gold shares. Pros were dropping dead today. In bullion you had to walk close to the building to be safe from the golden flyers.

    I have told you time and time again that gold will be violent in its exponential stage. What you have seen is nothing compared to what is to come. Truth be known, this kitchen is going to get hotter by the day so if you cannot handle the heat sell partially at each Angel until you have cut yourself back to the sleeping well size position.

    For heaven’s sake stop barfing into weakness. Stop selling weakness and buying strength. That is a kindergarten type error.

    Stop the margin. It will kill you. Stop watching every tick. That is certain to make you crazy.

    You will in the future be very sorry you sold down to a sleeping position at Angels, but stopping pain is not an illogical purpose.

    Respectfully,
    Jim

  19. This is one of my favorite articles lately. Pay special attention to #21-23...http://news.goldseek.com/GoldSeek/1312297736.php Maybe he's just saying what I want to believe, but it has helped me hang on...hope it helps someone else or kli/joe tell me to delete it! "There must be no limit to what you can endure..." Is that post from Jim Sinclair?
