Catholic confetti.

and the argument for it is as follows:  the greatest impediment to honest government, oxymoron though it is, is campaign contribution reform especially re corporations and the vastly wealthy.  the greatest impediment to such reform is the supreme court which regards such as unconstitutional restriction of free political speech by said corporate "persons" and the vastly wealthy.  the votes for that supreme court position are from five catholics (kennedy, scalia, roberts, alito and thomas).  the sixth, sotomayor is yet to be heard from and does not seem as reliable as the others on this matter.

He's wanting you to say "Jew" confetti, because Trav has become, sadly, a fucking KKK lunatic.

There was a time when the guy posted pretty damn cool stuff.  Now all he does is drag his knuckles from thread to thread, day after day, posting his redneck, trailer-park, KKK buffoonery.

Maybe, but there's a real difference between Trav and JW.

JW comes from generations of money, at least that what he pompously brags about all the time. JW is your typical rich, disrespectful pig and you can see it in his posts - often long, obnoxious, drunken, thread-destroying, cut/paste garbage that disrupts entire conversations. You can see the sense of entitlement in the garbage he posts, and the selfish way he does it. He's the typical Palm Beach, Rodney Dangerfield character who still farts on the dance floor and pukes in the planter. We all know the guy that's too rich to be mannered.  

Trav is a different kind of pig. He probably comes from the southern trailer park culture - no money, at all. He's probably the first person in his family to go to graduate school and the first in his family to use a fork and knife.  That, too, you can see in his writing.  There's no sense of rich entitlement in Trav's posts - just rage, anger and hatred because once he entered the real world, the sad truth hit him: no matter how smart he is, his life would still be a struggle because he doesn't quite fit in, doesn't have the connections of the elite, the plutocrats, or those damn jews who control everything.  All those people less intelligent than him have the one thing he doesn't: connections.  He's the summa cum laude guy who still gets the raw deal after graduation because he doesn't. fit. in. 

You can take the guy out of the trailer park, but you can never take the trailer park out of the guy.  And that will forever drag him down

.... y'all.

 reply to the post itself; I'm not interested in whatever this bitching about confetti means; with regard to the post itself; you shouldn't be looking at these charts. Look at the "US Bond Chart" on the CME.com website. the drama is greatly exaggerated here. It's just another week in the bond market; they go up and down.

The wheel is turning
and you can't slow down.
You can't let go
and you can't hold on.
You can't go back
and you can't stand still!
If the thunder don't get you
then the lightning will!

Small wheel turn by the fire and rod.
Big wheel turn by the grace of God.
Everytime that wheel turn round,
You're bound to cover just a little more ground!

I'm guessing as long as the long end of the bond market can tank without affecting equities they will buy pm's hand over fist. The moment the bond market spooks the stock market though, I think the whole shit house, pm's and all will come a tumbling down.
