Dear Congress/stimulus: Thanks for nothing.
They can't hear you. They are working on QE2. /sarcasm off
Why would you need a sarcasm tag for that statement??? O_o
Hey, c'mon. You DID get something. You, me and everyone else. We're getting stuck with the bill.
You are sooo ungrateful (tongue-in-cheek). $2.5 trillion in debt is not NOTHING! Don't you feel rich? Pete Stark says that the deeper the debt, the richer we are!
Message to Congress and Prez.
I'm not into anal...
especially as a "bottom" !!
It's time to get serious about printing money.
1. For those of us few who pay taxes: slash them. Federal income taxes, followed by Social Security taxes, are by far and away my largest yearly expenses.
2. For most people who don't pay taxes: send 'em $1000 check.
Heh, a dem president and congress cut taxes? In your dreams. Has not happened since Kennedy. Jugears will never sign the bill so there would have to be an override and that is not happening until after November if then. Stick a fork in us we are done.
Umm, looking at the votes for that tax bill it looks like the house and the senate were in the hands of the repubs at the time and old slik did the right thing. Do you honistly think Nancy and Harry would pass any real tax cuts like those proposed above.
Ya, I'm so sorry. Whenever, I see the Obama manics I tend to focus on the hatred of the Presidency. You are absolutely right...the Republican Congress...and of course let us ignore all the Democrats that voted for the bill, because, you know, it's all about the Republicans. Democrats never, ever, ever cut taxes.
It's a shame you never paid a 75% tax rate you rich fucks...boo hoo hoo 35%...cry me a fuckin river.
Again and again I apologize to myself for being sucked down instead of up.
Look, all I'm sayin' is that politicians are either bought by the Corp/Bank/Media complex or their not. Most are, so this Repug/Dims thing (and tea party too for matter(eff the racists))is a false flag and I refuse to play.
Granted, most politicians are idiots. But at least the (R) platform says that they are supposed to shrink government, not grow it. Yeah, when the (R)s stray from their own platform, they are betraying their voters. But the (D)s platform is all about growing government, so, they are just as bad as the spineless (R)s. When (R)s stick to their platform like Peter Schiff or Ron Paul, they are damn good. Just like when (D)s reject their platform, its a good sign.
Just an RCH above the magic -10....no ramp job for the ECRI?
RCH, beautiful, I use that all the time, but have to have several explantions for those many that ask "Uh, what's that mean?" Carry on papa...
WTF are they going to do? We've already shot our wad on fiscal stimulus. They can't go back to that well. That only leaves monetary stimulus...or severe deflation.
Yeah, and Obamatron "Promised" no more bank bailouts -- until there is.
There's a 3 month lag to the indicator.
Great, lets keep the SPX up in 1100 range till October and let the fun of Oct 2008 start all over again!
October???....what the Fuck ...u dissapoint me.....cant we have the fun right now...i mean the markets are falling ...and i got my sweet Shorts in Place...
Watch em do a ramp job this afternoon and the dow closes the day at +1 point in the green on no volume. This is predictable isn't it?
if that happens again today...that will really Piss me OFF......
From yesterday's Charles Nenner post:
"As to trading, he believes that as long as the S&P does not close below 1,085, the market will continue bouncing, and if 1,085 is taken out - it should be all over."
If true, they won't let this happen...
Nenner is good.
Tense INDIAN becomes Pissed Off INDIAN.
I like it.
We need a new index, the RTI (Ramp Time Indicator), so we can bid the time the ramp-job starts each day. 3:30:04? 3:47:18? Bids may be placed from NYC, Jersey City, Vegas, Laughlin, and any Native American reservation casino.
You're on to something...this Ponzi Scheme could use another derivative to screw the retailers, you know, a binary hit or miss-type option; Email your idea to the PPT - they need a good scam to scalp another few billion out of willing suckers, considering they WILL be the market maker it will be a win-win for the casino. They could use another few billion for their fractional reserve scam to ramp up another few hundred trillion in dervatives.
Wait till the taxes skyrocket in 2011. Must be fun fun fun.....
Send in the clowns....
"Send in the clowns"....
What channel are you on? That's the only show playing over here!
& Lachsmtan says...'hold on a minute, its only one measure'. Appears he only likes it heading UP. You created the monster must live with it..
They'll revise this down next week as well!
Any news about BDI today?
Up 20. Booyah.
Apparently, +20 (~+1.1%) at 1720. Bulk, bitches!

Bank of America's Profit Falls but Beats Estimates

Funny, how were the expectations calculated.
CNBC should stop cheerleading earnings season. It is a given that earnings suck but they all beat expectations/estimates because the market is in cruise control and the only entity driving it is the Fed in cahoots with the too big to fail banks.
"they all beat expectations/estimates because the market is in cruise control"
Well, that and these companies revise expectations down low enough to beat them.
I am sure expectations were calculated with pixie dust, leprechauns and farting unicorns included as variables.
Unicorns farts are one of the most efficient sources of clean energy. The first political party to recognizes this will profit.
" Funny, how were the expectations calculated. "
HFT computer systems running on Iphones of course!
As someone else said this morning: "Houston we have a problem."
My thoughts, exactly
i dont know about you but i have never seen this data being mentioned in bloomberg....
Now the fun begins...
Keep your job, and your personal earnings level, and this can improve your situation, as long as you don't own a house...
It's not much of a silver lining, and there are a lot of ifs there.
"Keep your job, and your personal earnings level"
I have mentioned something along these linesth before - the game for me at this point is to keep from getting kicked down a financial notch. So far so good. Almost two years of playing "wack-a-mole." I hate this game.
Damn straight...houses for car prices, cars for moped prices, and more zombies than you can shake a stick at (no, really, keep shaking that stick).
