    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Dismal jobs report? Bullish everything. You want dollars, you want metals, you want equity: In other words, the report is insignificant.

Since when did the economy move on fundamentals? >?

This means more stimulus, and an assured debt ceiling raise. A big, surprising number. Debt ceiling raise could be the new QE.

Overall bullish for the corporate dictatorship. It means higher efficiency, lower costs. Humans and their payroll taxes, benefits, retirements.. pure liability. Think about that next time you use the automated checkout lines at the supermarket, or buy crap on the web.

All hail the Corporate Dictatorship. We the People will be left with socialist programs and subsidies to make ends meet.

EDIT: Obama: Debt Limit raise is the answer.

BUY everything.

I'm presuming you are being sarcastic. The dangerous thing about this NFP report (dangerous for TPTB) is that it seems to be pointing out that running 12% deficits and massive stimulus is no longer producing even a short-term pop in employment, i.e. that Keynesism solutions are failing. Sure, there will be calls to increase stimulus from here, but people aren't stupid and Obama=Fail is on their minds.

I don't think there is money available for another stimulus.  This is end game.  Quit your jobs and enjoy 12 months mortgage free bitchez.

"Invest" always equals "spend your grandkid's taxes, as if they could ever pay any" because we are scumbag plutocrats, and need POWER to keep you suppressed.

Always remember, invest = suppressed in Obummer bla bla bla sheep speak

As the mining industry has shown, shovels are too slow, high explosives are where it's at. That's why we don't need congressional approval for Libya. We're creating jobs over there for American servicemen and small businesses, like XE

Barry is looking rather grey. Note also the absolutely sour expression when discussing "business" and "private sector" employment. A bitter thing, capitalism. Eh, Barry ?
