It's 1984....but I don't feel 24 again?
I was only 8 year back than :)
I DIDN'T EVEN SMOKE OR DRINK BEER BACK THAN!
You probably weren't paying much attention to your grammar lessons BACK THAN!
* sorry, couldn't resist :)
I am sure his grammar is decent in his native language.
Thank all the monks over there for the best beer on the planet.
Duvel Green ftw
I am sure his grammar is decent in his native language.
I'm sure it is. Doesn't mean we can't enjoy a quick laugh or a quick crack amongst ZH oldies as we slowly watch the human race kill itself off :) At least we get to watch the people of Greece go down fighting.
I think I'll go watch some porn now. Nah, instead I think I'll head out to the corner gas station and buy some sparklers at one of those make-shift firework stands so I may pound my chest in pride as Ol' Glory waves her beautiful Made In China hand across the Fukushima irradiated skies this 4th O' July.
Cot Damn it's good to be an Americaine! AHH YEE HAW!
Junk? Geezus, people don't like sparklers anymore? No need to get your panties in a bunch. Ok, Ok. I'll pick up a pack of the crazy jacks and the glow worms too.
Now everyone, "Ohhhhh say can you see? ...."
With liberties like this, hell we should celebrate the 4th every cot damn day.
The New Improved Revolution Anthem
ooh, this is awkward.
If I had a man-gina and had to look at myself in the mirror, I'm sure I'd feel the same way LMFAO LULZ
Nice weaponry. Quite fitting, considering the weekend.
Happy Declaration of Independence from Tyranny and Right to Pursue Happyness Day.
Volume was very low today.
1984 is special...i was born
don't know what this means ...
but one out of seven
not great odds ...
It means that while the rest of the industrialized world has run off the road and smack dab into a tree, somehow the US is bucking the trend and sailing away to recovery heaven.
Either that or the USA has a compliant lap dog press and pliable economic institutions to fudge the books and economic numbers to a greater degree than the rest of the world.
Yeah, once again America is first in the world.
remember Mark Copolla's report...GAME OVER THESIS...US wins....but growth is dead or slow
It means TPTB didn't want Americans sitting around the BBQ over the weekend talking about how craptastic the economy really is. Pump it up for a week, and they won't complain.
Give this man a magic brownie for eloquently explaining why we released oil from the reserve magically before the normal 4th of july gas gouging occurs. I've noticed all the gas stations afraid to go above $3.85 in Cali this weekend, almost as if some magic edict went out. Notice also the lack of chemtrails, erm pardon me Haze this weekend. Somebody really wants us to think good thoughts about Merika this weekend.
gas was already at 3.85 before any release.
The oil was ( most of it anyway) sold to the Chinese and the to big to fail banks for storage offshore, only to be bought back later at a higher price...maybe next week. Reminds one of the Treasury auctions sold today and bought by the Fed tomorrow. Pocket change to run the government until August, off the books so to speak.
It may also mean that, as usual, the US is going its own way without the rest of the world, Wonder what will happen when the US faces the shock of its virtual world meeting reality?
This is fun to watch, however
the chart illustrates why the dollar is so strong
My great grandmother is stronger than the dollar and she is horizontal.
But, made up numbers don't lie, do they?
This stuffing the channel reminds me of an old LUCY show, where she and Ethyl were on the candy boxing conveyor. Had to eat the extra candy flying down the conveyor because they couldn't get it into the boxes fast enough.
Sorta like GM is doing with cars...now does this index take GM stuffing into account?
It ain't that hard to manufacturer numbers, but near impossible to manufacturer a truth.
Because...The USA is the factory to the world?
There's a sign in Trenton NJ (don't ask) "what Trenton makes the world takes" maybe we should attach similar to the Statue of Liberty.
...until they say: no mas...
No means no.
America is #1 at bestness, 'nuff said.
Just get over it
Don't matter none anyhow, 'cause history don't apply to America.
Only as long as America is writing it.
And it will keep going that way until China decides that it doesn't want to prop up the US any more (or until they can't).
This is too funny.
If we're killing them on exports, who's buying?
As long as the populace believes it - it works for a bit longer.
Next up, a 0.1% unemployment print. When printing money fails, just print reality.
Teargas and LRAD you can believe in.
Did you mean LARD?
considering the weak dollar, makes sense, not?
I am not seeing business move back here to the US. All we seem to have are overpriced M&A and overpriced IPOs these days.
... oh right, and inventories are building?
Just yesterday the dip said American business MUST be allowed to offshore their business.........
Which is it?.
Can anyone explain to me what this is? or whats reverse decoupling?
"whats reverse decoupling?"
Policy making idiots grasping at straws.
yes. its lying your ass off to get as many headline sniffing bots to buy stocks.
it looks like a North-Korean military power comparison, red is North Korea, blue are some selected western enemies. Or like hair shampoo, red is product xyz, blue are 'other products'.
Anyone correct me if I'm wrong, but: ISM: Institute for Supply Mangement ... think inventories. Our inventories are increasing for the same reason that the other 6 in the chart are decreasing, hence, reverse decoupling.
The brochure for the ISM report that the ISM puts out:
Well, Larry Crudlow just explained the rise in inventories is very bullish....it shows a higher confidence level by businesses....they expect greater future sales and are preparing wisely for that eventuality.
Or: piling up stuff that nobody's buying. Or can buy. Or will buy.
The algo's are going crazy today. Lots of mini flash crashes followed by intant recovery and higher highs.
