That was the title of a 1960 episode of Popeye the Sailor. Unfortunately I can't find a video link to it on YouTube or anywhere else, though there is an entry on the IMDB.

' “Imprint today's stock market action firmly in your mind because I believe we are going to see an explosion in stocks beyond anything ever seen before. Something has taken over the minds of both retail investors and institutional managers.

In a sentence, the psychology now is -- “you're a pathetic sap if you're not in this stock market.” The Fed is fighting a semi-depression, and Janet Yellen, if anything, is ready to throw more logs on the fire.

In today's New York Times, Paul Krugman notes that Larry Summers calls the current depressed and deflationary economy “the new normal.” The only thing that will keep it from sinking into genuine depression is occasional bouts of bubbles. And a bubble in stocks we are now in.

Most investors who are in this market are convinced that they can exit the market in a timely fashion if or when this world bull market breathes it's last." ' ... onths.html


"The practical reason for freedom is that freedom seems to be the only condition under which any kind of substantial moral fiber can be developed — we have tried law, compulsion and authoritarianism of various kinds, and the result is nothing to be proud of." -- Albert Jay Nock, "On Doing the Right Thing", in The American Mercury (1925)

‎"Men in a state of decadence employ professionals to fight for them, professionals to dance for them, and a professional to rule them." -- G.K. Chesterton

"No man is so exquisitely honest or upright in living, but that ten times in his life he might not lawfully be hanged." -- Montaigne

"But to live outside the law, you must be honest." -- Bob Dylan

"Unjust laws can be altered, as well as made. There's a new spirit in the world. Taxed out of existence, robbed of their independence by the government, the people must fight back how they can. What we're doing here is just a pin-prick. But a thousand pin-pricks put together ... " -- Christopher Syn

"Not in the flight of thought, but in the act alone is there freedom" - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire ... Must be a yearning deep in the human heart to stop other people from doing as they please. Rules, laws — always for the other fellow." -- Robert Heinlein
