That's what I've always said. There won't be any sovereign, or even muni default during the coming years. Too many powerful interests are at stake.

If I can't trust an anonymous internet troll, who can I trust? Hamy, sell me bonds.

I honestly believe now is the time to buy muni bonds, especially Illinois and California bonds. They have been way oversold during the last months, and have yet to cope with the incredible economic recovery in those States.

Ignore my advice at your own peril.

dude your crazy, i live in california and no one is buying california bonds in fear of defult. Every year for the past 3 years california has been finding new ways in explaining to people why they get IOU's instead of checks in the mail at the end of every budgit year.

Not sure about Illinois but it would take a change to the state Constitution to default on GO bonds in California.


Not that the fuckers wouldn't try it.

In CA the Constitution validates and " guarantees "many ponzis. Education, public pensions, GO bonded debt. They are all up front tied together in a sinking life boat.

Illinois and California are two of the most unstable land masses in America

Nothing like a decent bit natural disaster to blame hyperinflation on.

You can't be serious. I just got elected as one of nine alderman in Illinois' ninth largest city.  My city is broke and the state is much worse off.  Our fucking governor is talking about reducing or eliminating municipal revenue sharing(the state giving back what they take from the municipalities) which would mean a 2 million dollar budget hole for us in 2012. The state raised income taxes only to give it back to our corporations who are now threatening to leave the state. If you compare workmans compensation costs with our great lakes neighbors, Illinois IS number one by a factor of 7 to 10 times.  So fuck off you idiot.

Hamy is a clever Zerohedge contrarian, so don't take anything he says seriously.

You're kidding right? I don't know about Illinois, but California is quite possibly the worst state to be buying that stuff right now.

So your a buyer of anonymous internet troll bonds, bunds, treasuries and other labor asset backed goodness.

Well then I have a debt instrument for you :)

I have a .9999 gold and .999 silver lettered labor backed and future tech backed device that is sure to please.

More minimum wage earners to supplement the work force that has the illegals running back across the border.

Can't cut out cops and ff's now with all the crooks and pyro's running about.

Surely these people have paid their debt to society and will return to their old neighbor-hoods to become valuable, contributing members to Californian society.

A great day, indeed.

Why don't we have MORE Black and Brown people locked up?

After all, more people imprisoned than any civilization at any time in the course of human history is such an achievement.  Just look around at all the the shit we have to protect!

Prisons rank right up there with all the landfills as the real gifts given to us by 5 centuries of glorious Capitalism.

Fortunately a guarantee doesn't count as against the debt ceiling.  All good, just get more debt out there.  Can the Fed buy it if it is guaranteed by the treasury dept?  What a virtuous circle.

After the (chief financier and donations gatherer) bin Laden's death,  Obama simply has no choice but to backstop the incoming Muslim Brotherhood's government.  It's sort-of a law in the middle east: if a married brother dies, the other brother who's single has to marry the wife of the deceased.

I shook my head when reading this yesterday.  I suppose an extra two billion is a rounding error in the context of a$1.5T fiscal deficit.  "No worries Egypt, my friend.  Just charge it to my tab."
