I just thank God the United States is virtually bankrupt at this point in time.

Otherwise, our government would be interfering in the Egyptian revolution in ways unimaginable.

God forbid our president should merely talk about freedom though, apropos of protestors in, say, Iran.

comments like this make me nervous. Where is Tim Geithner?

Why does it take a collapsing government in Egypt to see Hillary Clinton?

Why did Bill campaign against Rand Paul?

What is this about?

Where is Tim Geithner?

Right now?  Probably sleeping.  Or masturbating.  Or doing his taxes on TurboTax.

Why does it take a collapsing government in Egypt to see Hillary Clinton?

Because she's an obnoxious whore and nobody likes her and they try to roll her out only when absolutely necessary.  That being said, I submit she adds nothing to the equation, and in fact she detracts from the situation by being such a horrid cunt.  Her smugness alone adds points to the interest we pay on our national debt.  I'd punch her in the balls if I didn't think she'd enjoy it.

Why did Bill campaign against Rand Paul?

Because he's a stupid Democrat and Rand Paul was running against a Democrat.  If that is not obvious to you then you must be a teenager who does not really understand American politics.  Or some dumb foreigner.

What is this about?

That is a really good question.  Speaking of, why do you have so many of them?

Whatever, I hope I was of service to you.

I am Chumbawamba.

Obama and Hillary slipping a Gerbil up Mubarak's ass. Mubarak is getting from the US what Mubarak gave to Egyptians. Hopefully the Egyptians will treat him in kind with the insertion of a camel.

he's got his 76.4 tonnes of the shiney sweet stuff and no inclination to return. Mubarak isn't the one with the gerbil problems, it's his extended family/connections who didn't get out.

I have not read this yet, but will now.

Slightly off topic for those repositing what might be too much faith, by miles, in ChairShitStain Bernanke -

The 100% confident Ben Bernanke and his amazing track record:

Bernanke speaking on October 27, 2005: There's No Housing Bubble to Go Bust -


Fri, 02/04/2011 - 01:05 | 933858 topcallingtroll

He had to say that. Any public official who made such a statement and followed through on it would have been blamed.for the bust to follow. Now that we have experienced this future fed chairmen will feel more free out bubbles, except the current bubbles that are necessary to get the rebalance over with. Obviously he cant admit that either in public.

I don't follow your logic.

He couldn't have said "I'm not sure," or that "It's my opinion that housing is frothy?"

He had to say that there was definitively no bubble in housing?

Why, again, do you suggest this?

from the article


But if Bernanke is confirmed as Fed chief, and if the housing market slows more than he expects, he would be unlikely to use the central bank's power over short-term interest rates to prop up falling housing prices for the sake of individual homeowners, according to comments he has made in numerous speeches and statements in academic papers.

How can you comment on anything if you have not read it???  What? just to jump in front of someone who has read it and does have something to say, just to post what you want ???


As for the article...commodity shortages be it because of scarcity or affordability leads to war...plain and simple and someone wants this to go around the world.  The one time bomb the articles doesn't mention is Packistan, which has all the problems and nuclear bombs too.

hilary got back to me;  we're not goin surfin.

apparently, the pirates are ALREADY organized.  by china, via the european union, and certain insurance firms.  she did want to thank us for our shitheadness;  she had not been aware of the situ being organized b4 our inquiry.

she didn't know what USARV was.  i can personally assure you she will never have THAT question, again.

nice to recon a bit w/you, 6. thirty years+ is a heluva long time. make sure you use plenty of sunscreen and never lose the hat.  although you guys will always be a bunch of pussies to me, i just happened to be in the parrot's beak, drinkin and smokin with the local macv's, when you ladies went into cambooja, and fyi, i was VERY impressed that morning.  just serendipity, i guess...never seen anything like it!  one horizon to the other, nothin but hueys, cobras, loch's, skyhooks...the ground started shaking about 0430 and i thought the hooch was comin' down around my ears, if you copy.

good evening, sir! and that comes with a snappy salute from this em.

i hope everyone here took my advice not to go short AUD.  Long AUD and ride the commodity super cyclone.

The winds went by and the march into march continues.

i was crouching in the jungle... getting stronger... while the chinaman drinks Lagavulin scotch in his empty apartment block, smashing mirrors and getting weaker....

Stay frosty.

One man's core is another man's noncore. This is why we win the final round of beggar thy neighbor. We let them all win by default the last few rounds, but now the usa has decided to enter the game and shake off all those pesky parasites and their unofficial and official unfair pegs as well as their soft peg like "targets" these countries need to conduct an independent monetary policy that fits their circumstances and quit.copying the fed move for move because they dont have enough chips to play this next round. They will either conduct monetary policy befitting their.circumstances or they will go through a catastrophe and end up repegging anyway. Sure some people think it was great to get all this subsidy from the third world, but they all planned to revalue after they stole enough of our service and industrial base, and then charge us out the wazoo. No way should we let them complete their strategy. They need to compete fairly./p>

PMs flat with all the global unrest?  Can the banks game the system for another year?  Can we dodge a major political event with all the unrest in the ME?

US consumer is tapped out and the BDI illustrates this.

Big key for US is fuel costs, if they increase as expected consumer sentiment will tank.  Food obviously will be a concern for many.  How many more will be added to the government payroll?  Cloward-Pivan(sp) anybody?

Residential and commercial real estate.

One of these days somebody's going to flinch and the rules are going to change.
