No, really.

Sentiment Partially Rebounds on Lack of News Flow

July 18 (Bloomberg) -- First Word Cross Asset Dashboard showing sentiment still negative, though slightly better than at mid-day as headlines stoking concerns regarding EU debt crisis, US debt ceiling deadline has waned, writes Bloomberg analyst TJ Marta.

In the good old days sheeple were taught the following.

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

Now there is some confusion, suddenly things seem a bit more complex.

Just where did all this talk of ponzi scemes and banking cartels come from anyhow?

Remember sheeple, just cover your eyes, block your ears and keep repeating.

Economy strong,   Enemy baaaa,d... .

it's annoying when people get obsessed with the word "money" when it comes to gold because it doesn't make a shit what your definition of money is, all that matters is that you get more fiat for your gold when countries around the world debase their currency, whether the bernank calls it money or defines it as money is meaningless, just because he doesn't call it money doesn't change its value or anyone elses opinion of it, it's semantics

My response is always: "Okay, so it's not money.  And you're going to turn me down if I offer you a whole chest of it?!..."

I quickly follow up with " shut the eff up."


Money or not, it _is_ value.  Potential purchases.  A universally accepted store of purchasing power.  More "money" than that green TP in our wallets now, isn't it?

Here's a headline for a slow news day.

Kenny Powers is the new MFCEO of K Swiss

For those of you who haven't joined the cult following, Kenny Powers is a character from the HBO show Eastbound and Down. A down and out former pro baseball pitcher, who is a totally politically incorrect redneck. The show got cult status after season 1.  They almost didn't have a season 2 but it happened. Kenny played ball for a Mexican team during season 2, and he gave endorsements to K Swiss Tubes sneakers and got stock options. Well now they are filming season 3. Kenny will exercise his stock options and be the majority owner of K Swiss ( a real company ) KSWS. K Swiss, the real company is all-in with Kenny Powers and I suspect K Swiss Tubes will be flying off the shelves. Here's a preview of season 3 and I guarantee you will laugh your ass off. And props to the real management of K Swiss for being the most un-corporate company in America.

Agreed.  Eastbound and Down is great stuff.

How about this news via Drudge:

Called "Putin's Army", it features a video of a blonde student called Diana who struts along Moscow's streets in high heels and a black suit before scrawling "I will tear my clothes off for Putin" on a white top in red lipstick and starting to undo her clothes.

Inviting girls to strip off for Putin for the chance of winning an iPad2, the campaign comes ahead of the March 2012 presidential vote. Putin was president between 2000-2008 before handing the reins to his protégé Dmitry Medvedev.

really? i haven't felt a thing, but i'll smoking my earthquake anziety syuff, just in case.

here we see the "time is of the essence" dynamic of things.  a stitch in time... forunately, we here in uncle sugar land have all the time we can print.  this can't happen here.  trust me. 

soon, we shall get a better clue as to what the banksters want, now, for completely freaking us out for the 2nd time in under 4 years. 

slewie to banksters:  you got nothin comin!!!

slewie to goobermints everywhere:  fuk you!!!

i may end up homeless down @ the creek, but, hey!  maybe i'll get laid! 

this is pretty cool, really, tho.  if you have any silver you haven't sold to the banksters yet, you can get over 40 bux/oz today, right now, if you hurry! 

styooopid me: cash & PMs?  dammit, i keep missing all this apportunity to build pyramids of paper wealth! 

world history redux:  in the late 20th century, the banksters tooled up their puppets to de-regulate.  in the early 21st, they were on the event horizon of the New World Order, as pre-ordained in the minds of rockefeller & co, rothschild & co, and "god" just as the big orange clockwork was ideating, and "god" spoke the word of creation, which was apparently, according to the very best science, a very loud, big "bang". 

soon, after one after another "what happened?"  "what went wrong?"  "who could have seen this coming" and "we must do something" 's, they went full retard ponzi.  again.  but word-wide for the very first time, due to the cunning of rocky's agent, henry the K, and his puppet, from yorba linda, tricky dicky nixon, who had prepared the groundwork a generation before, while bankrupting the Treasury in asia just to lose, kiss mao's ass and embrace china, while stifling the revo @ home by hog-tying bobby seale while sending him away for 5 years, shooting demontrators in cold blood, and ending the draft, while lying about every single freaking thing that came up. 

now, we have news of mr ponzi's arrest.  can this be? what will the NWO doodoo now?

got paper? be continued...

And with that, I am switching off the BlowHorn [CNBC].  Complete stupidity today...and I cannot stand anymore of it.
