so when does the "mission acomplished!" sign come out?

I guess you missed the news.  Here is a refresher from the NY Times: "The downturn officially ended, and the recovery officially began, in June 2009."   The mission accomplished banner already went up before QE-infinity :)

They have been carrying that sign around for 6 months now.  Didn't you get the memo?  Benny and the Jets saved the world.....   (He literally said that in August 2009 at the Jackson Hole convention).

Not many if you believe the numbers. U6 has fallen pretty far in the past 6 months. I don't see how but it has. It was close to 17% last fall.

U-6:  government manipulated tortured “got to make it look better than it is” number.  17%

 

SGS:  John William's number.  No BS.  Counts everyone.  22%

Yeah asshole. Print trillions of dollars out of nowhere, fudge the numbers on unemployment as millions drop off the employment rolls, and finally you put 216,000 people to work.  Sounds like a great deal. At this pace we will be back at full employment by 2023. We really got our monies worth out of all the printing.  Oh yeah not to mention that not one crook went to jail for the damage they caused.

Like I said last night, the number was leaked early, and the PigMen started frontrunning Bernanke's "men" operating the buttons and the levers behind the curtain.

"Diane "Lip Gloss" Swonk"

Did you catch her asking Santelli "Have you been in a Wall Mart lately, I don't think they can pay higher prices."

Reminds me of her famous last words to Peter Schiff when he suggested GM might go bankrupt. She puffed up her feathers and said: "Excuse me, have you been in a GM factory lately..."

Don't forget to pull gold and silver down!  Gotta sell in burts of unbacked paper all at the same time in order to drop gold and silver prices!

Enough to tank PMs and commodities, not enough to tank the Russell 2000, IMO.    Enough to pump the dollar, but not enough to pump the treasuries.

shorting against monetary inflation is suicide, wait for a month or so after QE2 ends then go short.....just remeber to close them out when QE3 gets announced

Yeah! Stocks up and we get to keep the rest of QE2. The bond market is very happy with this number. This is going to be a tightrope but if we can keep labor, GDP growth and monetary policy right where it is... we can play this game for evah!!

BTFD bitchez (but not too much, actual trading volume might fuck everything up.)

Uh oh.......

Looks like a tsunami of paper contracts hitting the COMEX again.....

Unlimited fiat, works every time.  Look at the electronic digit flippers panicking out of gold.

The amount of "Sell Gold" COMEX tickets far exceeds the demand for physical.....

looks like your ira full of gold stocks took a huge hit .... lol. too bad for the self acclaimed world's greatest trader who achieves success by buying hd and abt.

in the meantime, the works every time unlimited fiat, as you say, is quite comical given that gold is up for ten consecutive years and silver is up 120% or so in the past year.

only from a dark, dingy 600 square feet apartment overlooking a paved paradise los angeles freeway would somebody come up with the bizarre notion that a 2% pullback from all time highs in silver (<2% in gold) represents fiat success.
