Good. Blow that fuckin shit up! It's high time that people were punished for buying the debt of another. Thats buying and selling of human souls. Mankind doesn't deserve to be enslaved like that - even though they want to. What is slavery anyway? (Buying and selling of human souls).

Actually you make a good case that massive tax cuts are the answer.

If the government is totally broke and has no money to give away to lobbyists or special interests they will go away.

Nobody lobbies a bum.

If bonds sell off, they'll manufacture a recession or something to soften metals and equity prices, draw investors to the "safe" haven bonds, and provide some room for QE3 - 9000 in terms of inflation.

All due respect, but the system would be healthier today if some sheister hadn't sabotaged the Maine. We would have been just fine withouth the Spanish American War... the rich would have been a little worse off, but then no country has been worse off for losing the top 5% while every country has been worse off for attacking the middle 50%.

I am very worried (more so than usual), that they will engineer another major false flag event.  Say what you will about Alex Jones, but he has been right about a lot, like his prediciton in July 2001 of a false flag attack.


I think the Bin Laden bullshit story in Pakistan is going to escalate into conflict with a nuclear armed state, and a false flag detonation on US soil.  WW3 here we come.

I like Alex Jones for the simple fact he his got young people excited about important issues. I am not a fan of his radio show anymore due the incinsistances and his delivery.

If not for Alex Jones and the type of supporter he has garnered we might not be seeing a loley 75 year old outspoken Texas congressman front running the GOP for 2012.

Fall of the Republic was an awesome film for describing the Federal Reserve and their role in creating the crisis. Plus Max Keiser and Webster Tarpley as show stealers!

Back then the 10yr yield was about 3.95%.


2 years later there is another $3T in US Treasuries floating around.


Come on Jim...SHORT IT!  Be straw that breaks the camels back.

Scott Minerd, Guggenheim, laid out a BULLISH argument for the next several months in last week's Barron's.

That said, I slashed my net long position yesterday, looking to re-enter (long) on a pullback over the next week or so.

No shorting until QE3 gets "pre-announced".

Exactly, USTs will rally once the money printing is done.  Just like last spring.  No different.

Because, you can short the long end of the curve and still be long the dollar with short-term treasuries. If you are betting on a steepening of the yield curve there is nothing inconsistent here.

Because when the treasury goes down, interest rates go up. when interest goes up the dollar rallies or gets stronger.
