This is precisely what this market is now.. they are seeing just how 'dumb' they can make the 'news' to move it where they want.... seems all they will have to do next is say... and it will go which ever way they want
Monetary and fiscal policy are now "rumor-mill" policy.
The US gov't has no ammunition other than dumb ass rumors. Just like the one the other day that Daffy was assassinated, with the aim of slowing the inflation in food, oil and PM's. Pathetic.
Theyre completely out of ammo, now resorting to overnite rumors to provide any 'volatility'. Most humorous one was a couple weeks ago when the US itself ran a story that Gadaffi had been shot and killed, but we cant verify our own rumor.
the propaganda machine out of ammo? Lmao they have a thousand more charlie sheens to make sure no sheeple discuss anything of substance.
Well if people are stupid enough to be diverted by lowlife stars and silly rumors then they deserve what theyll soon get.
Lowlife stars and silly rumors?!?!?!You mean Quckdaffy and Chevyz sitting together on the crazy train is not gonna get a peace accord when the rebels said "phooey" to the negotiated proposition? What a bunch of low lifes, thinking sitting down for mature, reasonable, sane discussions with those two butt nuggets would be a waste of time?Well, lemme tell you, everything was gonna work out just fine, fine I say, till the Frenchies got pissed that they'd not been invited to the table, let alone reject something they've got not a fucking thing to do with. Let them eat chapnigions and goose fat.
Ha ha ha!!!
Chavev and Daffy, why it's almost the trinity only obamao is missing for actung bono!
Not to mention the glorious distraction factory - WAIT! - look over here - CHARLIE SHEEN. No, look over there - GAY BASHERS AT FUNERALS. Argue all week with your friends and coworkers! Self-righteous anger - YEY!
Sorry Raynja, posted at the same time.
BTW girls and boys, Charlie Sheen has signed up for twitter. Now you can get full retard up to the minute on your cell hone or computer desktop.
Over a million followers too. Isn't it exciting?
There is just something about train wrecks...
Charlie is one of the few sane around these days.
The rest of you bitches are just scared to be anything off the reservation.
In this world why do you all go out of your way to ridicule one who says fuck you scum.
You should celeberate his every appeareance after all the polite society are just too cowardly to come out!
the only ones distracted seem to be you dudes, i have not thought about hin more than 5 seconds and then only to celebrate that he tells them to stick it slobs.
You recall my 6th grade days and the losers that huddled in the corner that were never picked for shit and just twittered over the studs on the field.
I, for one, am a fan.
I am Chumbawamba.
Do you guys even realize that you sound like a bunch of lunatic conspiracy theory mullets? I'm just as annoyed as the next guy that has ZH set as his home page about EVERYTHING going on...but com'on guys...who are the "they".
Sykes (laughing uncontrollably with his tobacco-stained mouth wide open): 'They'?...Caught you didn't they, eh? Tied a tin can to your tail. Let you in and waltz you out again. Ha, ha, ha. Oh my, what a bunch. Big, tough one, eh? Ha, ha, ha. Here you are, with a handful of holes, a thumb up your ass, and a big grin to pass the time of day with. They? Who the hell is they?
Who the hell are they?
I love you Tyler
Hugo...what a man!
It appears Chavez proposal would leave Ghadafi in Power or at least share power and Frances exterior minister, alian Juppe said France would not except any such plan.
Why does France have anything to say about it? Are they imperialists, too?
Chavez brokering a peace deal? Who believes this?
Now the propaganda machine is just pissing on us and telling us it's raining.
No question about it. This is all now just stupid.
bread and circuses.
Sometimes the old lines are the best.
Why truont? Would it be more believable if Peace Prez Obama was brokering? or He's Gotta Go Hillary?
It's all a joke. American foreign policy being the cruellest one of them all.
So yes, bring it on Hugo, propose soome peace.
I'd mistrust anything coming out of the speech-hole of a European nation or America first.
US media rumor machine is 100% unreliable I dont believe anything I see. While Libya bombs its own refineries and oil fields we're supposed to believe 'peace' is being brokered? All utter rubbish. Maybe they can trot out the rumor Ghadaffi is dead again.
Oh, they apologized for the bombing. They weren't trying to kill anybody they were just trying to scare the protesters...
ori your logic is flawed. because American foreign policy is cruel that makes Hugo Chavez credible? or is this just another opportunity for you to spew forth your hatred of the Big Satan America?
Judge Hugo for Hugo and judge America for America don't compare the two.
Chavez is very likely aware of the duplicity of the US and the West.
Very easy for him to offer a peace plan, even with the luxury of being workable, as Chavez knows that the plan will be rejected.
No matter how credible the plan is, if it does not meet the objectives of the US, the plan will be rejected.
Plain to understand.
....and that makes Chavez credible how?
What do you mean by "it makes Chavez credible how?"
Credible on what? If you mean credible on the peace plan, I answered the question, it seems.
If you ask how it makes Chavez credible on kicking a footie, that is another story.
Ori is implying that he trust Hugo more than something coming out of USA or Europe, thus he is implying that Hugo is more credible then Europe or USA.
so how is the lack of something credible coming out of Europe or USA make Hugo Chavez anymore credible as he seems to imply?
If not then why include the comparison instead of just speaking about Hugo and his own merits?
I answered to this point: because the plan will be rejected if it goes against the US and Europe's best interests.
Which relieves Chavez (or somebody else by the way) from the possibility of seeing any plan (including credible plans) that would go against the US/Europe best interests being accepted.
Chavez has a 'free' shot to call out the US/Europe. That makes him credible on this plan. Because he can afford the luxury of providing a credible plan.
US/Europe have to cover up for their best interests. They have to conceal behind humanitarian smoke.
For this specific event, chavez is more credible than the US/EU.
Most people would agree that Chavez's ulterior motives are less sinister than the U.S.'s or Europe's.
maybe so Rick, but I would venture to say they are no less sinister.
I do hope you're missing ORI and AnAn's points deliberately...
Interesting tho' that the discrediting of said dumb news does not bring the market back to the pre-dumb news point. Rachet efffect.
lol Chavez. Maybe they can get his buddy Sean Penn to help too.
chavez is an american distraction even raul doesn't know about.
But, wait. CNBC headline from a couple of minutes ago was:
LOL, re-propping-up the failed rumor which drives all market activity today. Gotta keep it ALIVE!
Don't look now, but its apparently the libyan rebels who are rejecting the plan....
What is going on? Is this all a bad joke?
No, they just had concerns about some of the Chavez-inspired peace terms, such as...
Qaddafi will remain in power
All protestors will be executed
Joseph Kennedy Jr. will visit
All protestors will be executed
So you think that if Qadafi is overthrown, all people who sided with him, will be pardoned?
Qadafi is fighting an uprising fomented by Al Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda...OH you mean that group that was formed by the CIA in the 80's?
Yes, and it is operating in Libya to foment uprisings.
you think daffy will pardon "his people" when they win?
Joke fail you forgot the sarc tags.
AL GUYDA is everywhere.
CHicken man he's everywhere he's everywhere.
"What is going on? Is this all a bad joke?"
in one word. Yes.
And just like the Gadaffi shot rumor the market will churn. Since we already headed already up here on the Dow we may as well hang around and see what happens right?
Im looking for a QE 3 rumor tomorrow heading into the weekend.
