wishingful thinking. i like it.
Or, as Charlie Sheen would say, magical thinking.
What about this exchange on CNBC today? (Feb 25th 2011)
or if you prefer the cnbc link.....
Damon Vickers, Nine Points Capital Management founder talks about QE2 and why he thinks bernanke is buying up the US debt
yes, i saw that . what a set - up ! conditioning the people to accept this one-world government & one-world currency . ...... biggest scam & rip-off in the history of the world.... i can't get out of this story !
IMO, the best part:
Carl:We issued ahh....30 billion in 7 year notes this morning and yields are down. I mean the vigilantes, we always say, if they are so worried, why are they hiding?
Damon: Who did we issue those to?
Car: Whoever bought them. I mean the point is supply came online and it was absorbed....
Damon: Who was that?
Carl: .....in a week where risk was off.
Damon: Who bought those bonds?
Lady: Who did buy it? Was it all the Fed? You think nobody bought?
Carl: Could have been the Fed, could have been the chinese japanese.
Damon: I dont think so. I don't think sales are taking place. Thats why QE2 Exists. They are issuing debt and printing paper and printing money because there is not the absorbtive capacity of the world to absorb the debt, and thats where we are.
Jesus Christ, I just realized that Carl is saying what most people people think.
First reaction to a non-sale would be "ooo f!"
But they saw this coming, so they swept it under the rug as if Nooooothing is wrong.
Because if they said "This shit's broken!" WTF happens next?
And the deadly question is: "In how many facets of existence are we already playing beyond the Event Horizon?"
My personal favorite from the news today was Megyn Kelly on Fox telling everyone they should "Go ahead and fill up their cars today to save money before the prices rise."
Lol. That advice will help for all of about a week. What's your next advice? Stock up on groceries? Oh wait, if people do that they are considered conspiracy theorists and hoarders. Please Fox, tell me what I need to do.
This obsession with Fox is borderline delusional and without a question juvenile. Just stop watching it for christ's sake.
Do you ever get the feeling some people here would go to the beach, and complain about the sand?
Ever get sand up in your nether regions? Sucks.
No obsession here brej. Don't even have cable. Shit, don't even have T.V. Just lamenting my, or our, own alienation.
gosh, me either! I would rather have a nice pair of shoes to go to work in then pay my hard earned money to a cable company that shows people dumber than I am. What's to look up to or idolize? At least all you great guys here on ZH are making me think and sometimes that hurts.
People on FOX talk about what is talked about here. You hear references to zero hedge frequently and increasingly. They have the audience for good reasons.
Well hey, not to butt in and change the subject or anything, but looky what the fucking cocksuckers up in washington state are proposing. That's right, a get out of jail free card for banksters through a total rewrite of the existing contract law that protects homebuyers.
Looks like those motherfuckers up in Wash State got a big payoff from the banksters and have rewritten contract law so that foreclosures don't need to have the actual wet ink promissory note.
Scroll down to item 7 (a).
Just fucking WOW if this goes through.
That seems to be almost an ex post facto...but we did that a while ago by rewriting the compensation contracts for some of the bankers didn't we...
Making 1 post about Fox doesn't make me delusional. Stop your slandering. I was responding to the posts above me talking about CNBC saying how I saw something funny on Fox. If the news broadcast that I mentioned happened on any other channel I would have mentioned that channel instead.
The thing I found funny was recommending people to fill up their gas tanks before price rises which will only be helpful for a week because gas prices are set to stay high. If anything, if people all listened to that advice and all went out and filled up their gas tanks at the same time, they could cause unnecessary panic and price rises.
I have to agree. For example, if you came trudging by my road frontage in rags and hungry, I would not give you a loaf of bread and a canned ham, it would only help for a week. If I cannot completely and totally solve your problems why try to ameliorate them for a week or two.
What if those people being smart, filled all their gas cans and the 55 gallon drum hidden in the garage. Now their tiller and tractor work for the planting season. Oh forget it they won't have it next year so better to starve now..
Thank you for your response Calmyourself.
Your post is exactly what I was meaning in my original post. Just because I mention the name of the news company that issued the bad advice doesn't mean I should get lambasted.
Carl is attempting to reinforce the belief. Most people have not a clue what Carl was talking about. Anyone who does have a clue has to know that Carl is BS'ing.
so clue us in..? are you saying that the fed is not buying treasuries? We already know that they are
Agreed-the fed is buying treasuries. Carl is holding up his part of the psy-op. Anyone who knows anything about the treasury markets knows the fed is the buyer. Carl just cant say it because many people have no idea what a treasury auction is--and Carl is keeping those folks in the dark. I apologize that I was not more clear.
zero hedge has already clarified this vicous profit making cycle; treasury sells to primary dealers [wall street banks ] and they sit on em for a week or so, and then sell the back to the fed for a profit
zero hedge has already clarified this vicous profit making cycle on US Treasury bills; treasury sells to primary dealers [wall street banks ] and they sit on em for a week or so, and then sell them back to the federal reserve bank for a profit
haha, the best part..... was when Damon shoved Carl's foot in his mouth to stop spewing lies
And,SO IT IS WRITTEN.
What we are living thru has been in the works for thousands of years.None of this is accidental, or due to Wall St thieves, Bankers, and Politicians.
It's a part of the PLAN.
... and we will be
"The violent twilight of oil"
Catch the look on Vickers' face when he says to Becky "Who is buying our debt??" "WHO"?? Thnx for the post.
Vickers = NWO shill. He grew up in the company
Exactly. He is an actor in psyop theatre. His role is framer of thesis-antithesis-synthesis.
LISTEN TO THESE CHARLATANS: "..'as we transition' to a 'global economy.'" "..to 'help investors' transition to a 'New World Order.'" ...DISGUSTINGLY TRANSPARENT NEUROLINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING.
Methinks the China bubble should rank #1. God only knows what will happen when it pops.
classical beggar thy neighbour remark!! Lol!
I'm not so sure about the premise of your statement. China has been the favored child of the PTB for a very long time. The West built the Chinese industrial base in the same way that the West built the Soviet Union. Totalitarian state capitalism, what's not to like from their perspective? ...I don't see China collapsing any time soon.
Lets skip to 2012...this is too depressing!
Why don't you refrain from posting until 2012...
If you think 2011 is depressing, what makes you think 2012 will be any better?
Mr. Blank...you are really scaring me. Last year I had a hard time making ends meet, this year it looks like I won't be able get them to even wavy at each other.
Marc Faber McAlvany Interview 23 February 2011.
thx for the link :P
Tnanks indeed. Faber will be proved roght IMHO.
Awesome video, Alex Jones exposing the fraud that Glenn Beck is over a 15 minute expose. Rips him a new asshole.
Thanks for that link.....always like Alex Jones.
Beck, to state the obvious, is a tool (in more ways than one).
and yet Alex Jones will never touch the biggest issue of all.
No , he will not go near it . He is bought and paid for and probably was from the start. This is the feeling of many now. It was a lie from the start.
