The best way to hide something, is to put it out there for all to see:
In plain sight
However, for the oligarch’s target audience, the proletariat, they can’t actually ‘see’. It’s all by design.
They’re hypnotized, programmed, demoralized; just doing and not thinking.
Which home improvement center has the tag line played over and over through their speaker system (paraphrasing) ‘doers getting things done’.
If you think about it, ‘Doers’ don’t think. They just ‘do’. A perfectly controllable, mindless herd.
Going one step further, is to have these proles so mentally damaged, they actually think, there’re thinking.
Which brings us to our chief cook and bottle washer for the day: Southwest Airlines
Southwest Cancels Flights:
The official company line is cancellations were due to weather which is obviously not true.
This report from KHOU in Houston, says the cancellations were about something else. It’s in the title but that’s not what the news story’s really about.
Go ahead and watch. Stop the video after thirty seconds and tell me (figuratively) what’s the real intent.
If you can ‘see’, it’ll be obvious.
Actually, this was an easy one.
This news story has nothing to do with cancellations and everything to do with ‘compliance.’
Present the image over and over of compliance (masks) and then it takes on a life of its own.
For example, we can see that type of compliance in this Facebook post (at left) put out in my area just yesterday.
It’s not hard to surmise (and tragically, so) there’s probably not going to be a ‘Second Year’ photo shoot.
This Is Now:
I have family members that essentially fall into two camps:
The first, plugs their ears and chant “la, la, la, it’s not happening”.
The other camp mumbles over and over (for years now) “it shouldn’t be this way”.
Neither camp has, is, or will do anything to get ready.
Icing on the cake is the typical response of, ‘Your information’s not from a reputable source’.
What, like Fox News?
You may, and probably do have similar stories.
In line with it’s not happening, or the government should fix it so it won’t be this way, we have Dan from I Allegedly.
He just posted another update. At time stamp 20:20, people are still expecting a fourth stimulus check.
That’s something else that’s not happening.
Which all brings us to what really is happening … our second topic of the day: Biotech
Biotech SPBIO (LABD) Analysis:
It’s been an up day for biotech (down for LABD) thus far but that’s not the real story.
The chart below is from earlier in the session. We’re looking at the leveraged inverse fund LABD, on the hourly basis:
Next, we have our ‘usual suspects’ mark-up showing us the potential opportunity:
From a personal standpoint, being short biotech via LABD (not advice, not a recommendation) has been tiring.
Especially on days like today.
You can watch your main account fluctuate (in the red) by what used to be, in the corporate world, two to four week’s pay; all happening in a single hour.
However, even as this post is being created, we now have LABD posting the following:
Upside action off the spring looks strong. However, there could still be a downward test.
SPBIO, Last Chance?:
Intuitively, this could be it for biotech (SPBIO) to the upside.
The reason for that conclusion is:
If the spring set up holds with sustained upward action in LABD, it sets up a potential measured move condition (not shown); targeting LABD to much higher levels.
In that case, SPBIO would move lower … much lower and possibly well past any nearby major support.
