To those who bought Italy CDS last week, congratulations. To those who are buying it right now, also congratulations.

You may be right, we might go into a Dark Ages redux.

Wow. Straight to the heart of the system.
Italy is a TBTF for too many reasons.
Where will they transfer this pain to?

If you're going to post a link to your blog, please make sure the images you are displaying there show up.

Better yet - how about you stop spamming your worthless website on a site that is worth something?

+1  I generally like your posts here, but keep the advertisements off, please.

Oh regional Indian's picture


just struck me, is it time for Il Papa to take the heat again?


1) Vatican Trouble Peaks April 15th 2010

2) Eskkkudjeeelaffyyll is erupting

3) Oil is in the news with Deep Water Horizon

4) Christ Church rocks in Early Spetember 2010, peaking of the Deep Water Horizon Story

5)Vatican story goes completely quiet.


Fast forward now:

1) Oil is in the news, explosively

2) ChristChurch rocks again

3) Bulsan Volcano blows

Maybe the Vatican story will "explode" into the news again. soon.

ORI- It already has... in Philadelphia!

Oh regional Indian's picture

Really? Links please?


And to the long timers who think I'm spamming....tch....tch... you post you tube links and other links and pictures that you think are relevant. I think my writing is.

easy enough to pass along, ne? Or are you that  lazy? I give a few regulars a pass because I dis-like their point of view. But I welcome Michael, Gully Foyle, DavidP, who post relevant, even if in a round about way, original or well researched material or links for the most part.

Such a curious reaction.

Also, big, huge hat-tip to ZH and folks here and a few other forums I post on, my blog is well read and responded to.

I see it as an extension, not an intrusion.

Apologies for the image trouble, only in the US, here it is working fine.

Is that a gun in your mouth or are you just unhappy to see me?

Obviously the person who junked me is an insulted (frustrated?) Mae West fan.

Sir, I see you are a neophyte or a disbeliever to the honored traditions of "hoggin".

This fine woman wouldn't even make the semi-finals.

CD:  Tough crowd lately, and for no good reason. Ah the good ol' days when ZH was a wee little blog and everyone focused their ire on the evildoers in this world where it belonged....

Lulz is good. I like CD. You, he and I are ZH oldtimers. Good to see Jim in MN today. Miss deadhead, though.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

I am lucky enough to have very intermittent email contact with deadhead. He doesn't check his ZH email account very often. He comes around here now and then, but something profound happened to him that led him to essentially abandon posting here on ZH.

He says he lurks often, but who knows what happens to a person who has been severely beaten by the very system he trusted all those years. I tried to channel some of that pain with my "Where have all the ZH Veterans gone...." article but each case is unique.

Cindy_Dies_In_The_End's picture

Ah, come you two, Group Hug(())


Yeah, I miss some of the "old timers" I wll read that article CD.


Wonder how many of us will be left "standing" virtually in the next few years?

I agree with your assertion of truth speaker's fatigue...I did not read the post when it was originally posted, but glad I did now...

I can't think of anything.

I'm currently working on a Zero Hedge article about Zero Hedge that quotes extensively from the book and movie. Gonna run long but it should be fun. will ruffle feathers in the community.

You're in a good position to do that (for other sites too).

Roscoe's picture

CD, I thought your post on what's become of the old posters was excellent, to the point that I'm willing to pay the extra $ to get your next installment in Blu-Ray! Ruffle on Brother.

i mean, the chart looks good and all, but is 4.81 to 4.86 really that big of a deal??

dearth vader's picture

Even in penis length it hardly makes a difference.

The Count's picture

Just shows you that with the right scale you can make anything look important.

papaswamp's picture

meh $500,000 for every $1 Bil borrowed difference. But if you are broke, I suspect any increase sucks

 Venice we have liftoff..

IQ 145's picture

 You caused me to reflect on Venice and some of the other Italian City-States and their history; they have all seen so many government financial plans explode, implode, disintegrate centrifugally,  and vanish into the mist; and all during this time the families and the businesses that held the gold and the silver survived; for many many centuries. And today, in the ultramodern future that is suddenly now; everything is exactly the same.
