    Time for a strategy change? Not yet?

    IMO, we are starting to see the effect of the fed's aggresive rate-cutting policy in the last year or so, setting interest rates at a 40-year low. Inventories are gone, all the dot bombs that could not cut it are gone, credit is flowing like like the Mississippi fukken River. I smell rebound, we are around that time of the so-called "business cycle".

    My question is this: Will this bode well for KO and bring it along for the upswing? Or will this cause a 'strategy shift' in major investors leaving KO, a 'safe-haven', so they don't miss out on any tech boom?......Remember, this is not all going to happen soon, it takes time to unfold. Several things could change my outlook on the economy: more terrorism in U.S., a major flare up between Israel/Palestine, skyrocketing energy prices and just inflation in general. War on Iraq would give the economy an extra boost in the long run, though not at first. JMO

    • maybe not..BUT..honesty is always the best policy!!

    • REGARDING: If we know the truth, we are free, if we are merely comfortable, we might just be sitting in the eye of a hurricane.
      Denying truth doesn't make it false!!

      RESPONSIBLE: Truth is NOT always good.

    • Your statement:
      REGARDING: Very fiew people seek TRUTH,what they seek is CONFERMATION that what they BELIEVE, IS TRUTH!

      RESPONSE: Most seek what is "comfortable", believing that is "truth". There are four "conditions":
      1) Something is comfortable and right
      2) Something is comfortable and wrong
      3) Something is uncomfortable and right
      4) Something is uncomfortable and wrong

      Conditions 1 and 4 are ideal, while, unfortunately, it seems as though we are faced with 2 and 3 (the character-builders) constantly and consistently.

      REGARDING: perhaps that is why there is so little of it in our world today! HUMmmm?? the DUCK

      RESPONSE: Actually, I believe that most people are or want to be good.........., we all must try to do a bit better.

      best,

      My comments:
      The problem today is that we confuse perception and truth. I liked your truth table.
      A person I know, made the statement, "It's all perception, perception is reality. We make reality. ". Unfortunately this is the prime axiom of the media.
      We've have lowered the bar on truth so low. that a snail can now jump over it. If is sounds good or sensational, go with it.
      If we know the truth, we are free, if we are merely comfortable, we might just be sitting in the eye of a hurricane.
