 Cmon now according to Gadaffi, he will die in a blaze of glory, fighting side by side with his loyal subjects against the scourge of terrorists and become a martyr for his people.

 Ol Hosni was going to die on Egyptian soil too.

 What, you think they will just load the plane with gold, whores and drugs and head for the nearest despot refuge, leaving their loyalists to their fates?

 Nope, I really beleive Gadaffi because he was waving his arms around and stuff when he said it, so I look for him to grab an AK and go down fighting!

 I didnt really think they would start droping hints about QE3 until QE2 was a bit further along. QE3 might be about priced in so they need to start droping hints of QE3.5 and QE4. Joe retail hopped back into the market, just in time to get fleeced!

When they announced QE2, they only set a minimum, not a maximum. It could go upward and onward in perpetuity. Ben left the door wide open for more. Of course this is just a semantic, if somewhat trite detail; it doesn't really matter what they call it, it's money printing all the same, but those waiting for a QE3 announcement might want to go back and look at what Fed said about QE2.

I make a prediction. There will be NO QE3. I guarantee this with 100% accuracy.
It will be called something else.
Extended QEII
Here are a few guesses on what it might be called. Feel free to add your own ideas:

1.   QE2+
2.   QE2.1
3.   Stimulus for Jobs
4.   Stimulus for Puppies
5.   DEFINATELY not another stimulus. No, really!
6.   Print the debt away.
7.   Debt-be-gone
8.   DebtX
9.  "Happy days are here again"
10. We are NOT printing money. Pinky swear. We... we caught a leprechaun, yea. We caught a leprechaun, and he gave us a pot of gold. (They’ll buy that. They swallowed all the other garbage. What? The mikes still on!   Crap!)
11. Stimulus part trois

Ha! You had to read the article about Bullard being a "bellweather" "inflation fighter" ra ra ra at the Fed this morning (see the FrontRunning section on ZH).

This guy is a career econo-clown/central bank-tard, just like Bernanke.

Their names will one day be etched in stone.

roughly translated:  if $4 gas doesn't boost the economy, maybe $6 gas will.

Right, all QE does is boost the economies of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi and further entrench Vladimir Putin.

Well folks we have not even felt the full effects of QE1 yet, as that sort of effect is like the comet in that movie Deep Impact. (We are HERE-----the folks standing on the shore with the wave tarting to come in). That's what he means--inflation will accelerate. So yup, we got a long way to go and a lot of it will be up. Atleast in the short term.

Don’t expect to get any cost of living adjustments to your SSA check. I haven’t got any for 2 years because There is no inflation, didn’t you know? But both years they take more out for medicare, because of inflation in the cost of health care. So,,, there must not be deflation in the cost of food, right? Or gasoline. Or water and sewer. Or heating oil. Or real estate taxes. Or clothing. Or air travel. Maybe iPods? – BINGO! After hedonistic adjustments because of improvements there is DEFLATION in iPods! That explains it. That offsets all those pesky increases.   Now, do you know a delicious recipe for preparing iPods? And how does one heat your house with them?

Mubarak, Gaddafi, Bernanke, all dictators do the same thing, they attempt to hold a fist full of sand, once it starts to escape, the harder you squeeze, the faster it gets away from you. Even a child at the beach knows this lesson.

I still don't know how we can get away with the QE bullshit, at all, without being kicked into the Turd World.

I could see buying bonds if we had a surplus, but when running a 1.5(at least)TRILLION dollar deficit, annually, how long do these clowns think it can go on?

I guess Bullard didn't notice that the Dollar has declined with the greatest turmoil we've seen in years.

The trap door is going to open on the DOLLAR any day.  Then what, Bull(shit)ard?

Does anyone really think they're going to shut off the spigot, really?   employment levels, true unemployment, north of 16%, their admitted stated purpose to increase asset values as Fed mandate, pension funds tied to the stock market.... anyone who thinks they're going to shut off the spigot is not paying attention.    They want a devaluation stockmarket.   For christ sakes they barely got agreement to cut a few 10s of billions out of a near multi trillion dollar budget.    Yes, it should be inflate and die later or die now but "Inflate or die" has never been more true.   Until it starts to hit their own constituency, wall street and the TBTF banks, full steam ahead and screw the rest of the public, everywhere.

I am confused.
I guess this must be sarcasm because he is saying what everybody here believes is going to happen right?

It is still possible to have deflation at the end of qe2 if we havent got money velocity up. However i believe the chinese are sufficiently motivated to spend those dollars now, or FRN'S for the picky.

The newer (September 2008) editions have a total of $20,580, with 30 of each bill denomination. In addition, the colors of some of the bills have been changed; $10s are now blue instead of yellow, $20s are a brighter color green than before, and $50s are now purple instead of blue.
