Presenting The Administration's Spin On The Dying Dollar

Tyler Durden's picture

Wondering what chart is in the memo that expert Fed reporter Steve Liesman just may have received with instructions to spin (literally) for public consumption? Wonder no more.

Doe, a deer, a female deer, ray, a drop of golden sun!!!!!!  These mushroom eating pagan illuminatti play childrens games.  Paper is not monie.  It is an IOU.  IOUs are not stores of wealth, meaning....the doelarr is dead.

Die, die, die my doelarr, don't utter a single word

Die, die, die my doelarr, just shut your pretty mouth

I'll be seeing you again, I'll be seeing you in hell

Don't cry to me oh baby!  Your future is in an oblong box, yeah

Don't cry to me oh baby!  Should have seen it coming on

Don't cry to me oh baby!  I didn't know it was in your power

Don't cry to me oh baby!  Dead end girl for a dead end guy

Don't cry to me oh baby!  Now your life drains on the floor.....

Saul Alinsky is "spinning" in his grave!

Lies man may appear to be "expert Fed reporter Steve Lies man", but I suspect he's Steve Lies man Fed employee.

There is nothing wrong with your television set.

We are controlling transmission.

We will control the vertical.

We will control the horizontal.

We can flip charts to make it look like a recovery.

We can ignore any facts we wish.

We can parade an endless stream of self-serving fools . . .

While the gains in the S&P were greater than the drop in the $ it made sense for guys like me living on $C to stick around.  The relationship has collapsed recently and I have repatriated all funds back to the great still white north.  I'm probably just one in a stampede.  Your pushing on a rope Bernake.

Rope?  More like a tiger's tail -- wait till kitty wakes up...

Great Spin Tyler.

The news of the FRN death has been greatly exaggerated. We may be close to an intermediate low at least. Dont call a federal reserve note a dollar, or your paranoid gold bug credentials will be in doubt.

But this is the real tyler. Good one!

Liesman would have that chart on a 30%  counter clockwise rotation to truly give the illusion of a rising trend
