You can forget about your personal credit in the near future.

It'll be worthless.

Junked me without a rebuttal.

Pity the fool who lives on credit, we're headed to a cash economy as the "long emergency" takes more form.

It may either be too late, or you may think that it is just a dip and buy more. They are smarter than us. Why? they have the info and we don't timing is everything. Look out.

Here is some information about the "Liquidity Hoarding" from the Fed.


Seems that Fed is Suprised that the banksters are keeping the money.

What the hell were they thinking???

NOT smarter than us....just criminals. They telegraph their moves though. For instance, if the market jumps on April 1st, we're still good. First of the month has been green for awhile, although we had a miss either this month or last. That might be a new trend beginning.

Every time a FEDHED, gives a speech somewhere, they are putting out clues to what they will say (what they will do is obvious QE3 is a lock, but they don't have to necessarily call it QE3. They have generated such a large balance sheet, that they can effectively roll over the maturing treasuries without increasing their balance sheet, for some time). But, they will have to telegraph their intentions in advance of the April FOMC announcements, or risk some dynamism in the markets which upsets them (unless it's straight up).

I'm sure everyone saw the G7 bailout and Japan printing money like an addict going through johns and crank. Japan's deficit far exceeds the U.S., but still 'THEY PRINT,' will the full consent and backing of all the G7.

Currently, there is absolutely NO downside to running up massive deficits by printing money and increasing the debt ceiling to infinity. The consequences are issues for tomorrow and especially for another legislature and another administration. They might let the market correct down 10-15% to get all the retail investor's attention just so they can easily justify QE3 and this time go for the gusto.....$600 Billion (really $900 billion minimum) is chump change. If I was a scummy Central Bankster, I'd let the market dip hard and fast and then come to the rescue with a $3 Trillion QE.

So, I am risk on, risk off, risk on, risk off, like the Karate Kid, and more skittish than a virgin on prom night, but I am still trading and after all this time (since '07), I remember that which matters most.....


We should call the 2011-2020 decade, the Matrix Decade. Reality is on Hiatus for sure.

Credit is limitless in Ben Bernochio's world.  Just print more money and all is well.  When he gets in front of Ron Paul and says that QE is designed to temporarily buy and hold assets adding them to the Fed's balance sheet I wanna throw up in my mouth!  Bernochio's nose grows atleast a quarter inch a day.  In essence, the Fed, an American entity, is buying what debt noone else will and adding it to the balance sheet as a so-called asset, huh?  An asset, U.S. debt?  I guess I can call my credit card company and tell them I'm not going to pay this months statement because its really an asset which if they're interested I will sell it back to them to be paid back ten years from now at 2.1% interest.

You don't even need to call them.

Your signature is the asset. Your energy has been robbed from and reissued to you your entire consumeristic life purely for the profit of the Chapter 11 bankrupted united states (since 1933) and its evil IMF overlords. Yikes!

Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House in 1993:

 "Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11. Members of Congress are
official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt
entity in world history; the U.S. Government.

I miss Jim, "Beam me up Scotty".  He got out of prison a few years ago.  He seemed a bit crazy 20-30 years ago.  Not so much now.

I used to watch Traficant on CSPAN.  Wish I had a DVR then.  Dude was off the hook and in some ways, very prescient.  He whacked the IRS beehive and got done over that.  I will always believe that.  The Feds could hogtie just about any congressman/woman if they wanted to.  They went after "Beam me up.." Jimmy cause they could and cause he laid into the system every time he could.  He is no saint, but none of them are.

Anyone seen SHUTTER ISLAND?  DiCaprio's character is lost in either his mind or hell on Earth.  Never can tell.  The key to making him think he has lost his mind, or to making him appear to have lost his mind if he ever escapes the island and talks, is to ensure he has no credibility because of what appears to be his insanity.  Perhaps, however, he is completely sane?  That is what they did to Traficant.  Made him look like he was borderline insane.  Then, it was easy to whisk him off to jail on trumped up charges.  Sure, he helped the process along, but they enabled his failures to ensure no one cared about him being removed from office.  It was masterful.  Or, he really was off his rocker and had no business being in Congress, EVEN IF HE WAS RIGHT most of the time about what was going on in government!

Why don't you throw up on the television set, or perhaps an effigy of Berjackass instead?  I imagine that would be less unpleasant than throwing up in your own mouth.  Maybe you canmake a life-sized effigy of Berjackhole and then throw up in its mouth.  That would be rather satisfying, I imagine.

Personal credit? What does that mean? That we wont be able to borrow anymore? Maybe so, but why do you think not?

 Personally I think now is the time to borrow as much as possible with a fixed interest rate long term. With a huge wave of inflation coming, the payments made in a few years will amount to pennies on the dollar.

Watch the selling of Gold, Silver and Oil for Food.

Right on Duke.

Do you know that farmers can order seed that specifies how much sunlight the grow cycle has.

Example; "I want maximum yield in 90 day of sunshine", or "I want maximum yield in 95 day of sunshine".

Fucking-A. How to engineer a global food crisis? Kill off the Heirloom, let the rise of GMO take over the world. Walmart Seeds bitchez.

Wow, which do I respond to. People will sell their gold, silver, and oil for food.  Huh, you mean the people who had no investments and are selling family heirlooms. Wow. Or do you mean the CB's who are going to short everything and take all that money the Bernanke put in the markets just as the individual investor wets his feet?

And on the seed thing. Nothing surprises me anymore. Nothing. Monsanto has figured out how to sell seeds that will not produce fertile seeds so you have to buy them again next year.  And to top it off.  Our local Walmart is selling what they call "Seeding Potatoes".  I have never seen any of these at a Walmart ever. Are they O.K. to eat as is?  Just what the hell is the difference between a seeding potato and the regular ones you buy.  I always cut a few up every spring and stuck them in the ground.  

As I've said before. Sometimes I need the lady to pinch me to make sure all this shit is real. Either way. If Gold, Silver, and PM's do dip with the market. I do think the market is in for a correction. On PMs, Buy the Fukn' Dip.  Don't sell yet. This is far from over.  QE3 is only a rumor, then we have 4 and 5.

On PMs, just put up a chart that backs your thesis.  They may be tired in the medium-term, but aren't close to over.

Gold to $1225--buy.

Silver to $23--buy.

Long term bull in PMs.  Gold to $5000+ and silver to $100+.

As for food crisis, MENA, Japan meltdown, U.S. entering third war (or expanding the world war), risks to oil, nuclear, and coal going forward. . .  and we have a charlatan and pretender in charge.  What a country.

Time to re-read, by the way, THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS.

Time for the cheap deep OTM puts, IMO, and yes, I'm calling out Bernanke for being incompetent and less than the magician (much more like the charlatan) some claim he is, as I did in 2007, where I made enough money to expand my horizons.

And yes, I'm also doing what I'm saying.

Bernanke's fucked, he was going to be fucked anyways *after fucking America and the world*, but Japan was the swan that shat on him, and accelerated his demise.

Look for NerObama to throw Bernanke out to the wolves soon, in a vicious display as to how ugly politics can really get. And the excuse NerObama will use is -


-- Bernanke stated he would not support bailing out states, counties and cities.

Every once in a while, I get a good thesis going, and sometimes, they even pan out.


p.s. - You technical/pattern guys and chartists - give me an overlay of 2007/2008 before the crash happened and the last 2 or 3 months. Thanks.
