Anatomy Of A Missed Opportunity

Alright, ladies and leeches – we have a lot of material to go through tonight, so let’s dig right in:

The date is July 23rd 2008 – EvilSpeculator doesn’t exist yet but I was already churning out hard core EWT analysis like a mad monkey.

No More Mr. Nice Evil

This week completely sucked so far, but starting this Friday I promise you we are going to kick ass. I saw the light today and am completely jazzed right now – mentally at least one light year away from where I found myself yesterday. I’m going to completely rape this market – mark my words.

Alright, this is how feel tonight – hide your children, make sure the pets are outside hearing range, and crank this sucker up:

We are going to have some fun, my fellow rates – good stuff ahead.
