Santelli called it.  He said 55k 8 seconds before it was announced.

Titanic is sinking.

But this ship can't sink!

She's made of iron, sir...  I assure you, she can.  And, she will.

From this moment, no matter what we do, Titanic will founder.

Santelli bitch slaps Moody's to its economist's (Zandi) face.

Is everyone drinking Kool-Aid?

Meanwhile Moody's is downgrading the world, munis and I guess leaking (H/T Tyler).

Anyway, when the US devolves into an agricultural society non-farm payrolls will become irrelevant.

the joke in chief has been having the BLS fix the numbers more aggressively than ever to get headline below 10%.

Did you say munis?

Many states fiscal budgets begin July 1. We should be seeing the visible cracks of those budget plans shortly. But, otherwise, all seems quiet for now.

as they proclaim the decrease in govt.jobs as a good thing, i wonder how many of these people took early retirement with gigantic pensions and buy outs and all other parting gifts....that probably cost us 5X's more than if they stayed employed

Chasms, not cracks.  We have a general idea of which States are fucked and how badly, but a lot of munis are including State funds in their budget forecasts that, in many cases, will not be coming.  Crisis just around the next bend.

True, we are now at a state where it APPEARS the laws of physics no longer matter. Buoyant iron is only iron because the shills repeatedly state it is.  It really has properties that more closely resemble an eggshell.

The fiat damage control crew is on the problem.  I can already hear Capn' Bernank barking orders, "man the pumps!"   and Timmy shouting "Capn' Ben, we're trying to weld a patch over the largest hole but the buoyant iron keeps cracking... with all due respect, Cap'n is it time to lower the lifeboats (ballasted with gold bars)."

And...I heard somewhere yesterday that they (the gubmint) is just about ready to push through the latest "free trade" agreement with Colombia and Korea....I shit you not. 

This is just what we need to "fix" the employment issue here in the U.S.

The problem is that withoug a manufacturing base of good-paying jobs, there can really be NO economic recovery.  And since these jobs are gone and most likely will not be coming back....welcome to the "new normal"  (unless of course we can get ourselves into a war that is so big that full employment in the arms industry is needed for our continued survival  (that will be the program announced for QE-5 - war with Asia)

Seriously though...the stupid motherfuckers running the finances of this nation - which is basically the same group, that created the financial mess we are in, and which came to power during the Reagan years, honestly believe that if we are just MORE pure in our "free-trade", "laissez-faire" and "trickle-down" ideology that everything will fix itself.  This is the SAME EXACT arguement that the hard-line soviets in the Politburo made when the USSR was falling apart - "If only we can be more  pure in our ideology...things will magically get better"

Have these people not been living in the same U.S. as I have?  Do they NOT see the implications and effects of this "global free trade" and top-down approach to the economy?   Makes you wonder if they are really this incompetent or if there is a secret, hidden and nefarious agenda behind all of this?   hmmmmmm... I wonder?


When people keep doing the same things over and over again....and are surprised that the results are the same....they are usually called insane.  I would argue that our entire nation and it's economic system suffer from some sort of pychotic amnesia....it is either that...or this is a planned weakening for the eventual take-down of the U.S.? 

But who profits from that?  (Hint:  not me or you)

supranational "free trade" benefits the supranationals.
