Time for another market crash.

default on the dollar not a black swan. default on the dollar called in 19-fucking-13, and since the 80's by ron paul. all these events (and their underlying variables) are totally predictable, but treated as negligible in statistical modeling. a real black swan would be the false flag terror that is probably going down soon.

Most of those that lead to war are false flags. 911 was a Mossad/neocon operation. If Americans ever wake up to this fact, they will crush israel, destroy the mainstream media, and destroy the goons on Wall Street and elected stooges who looked the other way and covered up 911. More and mopre people are waking up to this reality  -especially many in the military -principalled men who are much more loyal to America than the crooked gaggle of politicians now disgracing the Halls of Congress.  this may likely delay or postpone any other serious false flag operations for the immediate future.  They'll have to find some other excuse to invade iran. maybe if max Keisers silver campign destroys JPM and the banksters crash our markets again, they will find a way to blame it all on max and the iranians.

What gets me is he is so aloof and freaking arrogant. Problems like record budget deficits, revolutions, spiking consumer prices are for little people and staffers to work on while he golfs or visits Spain and Brazil. He will then bless us with his occasional speech where he seems irritated that it interrupts his entertainment schedule to tell us in professorial style how we ought to act. He never actually has a solution or position.

This guy is an empty academic airhead know-nothing who actually believes he's brilliant and above it all. This is a dangerous combination in dangerous times.

Who cares what the DXY does, all this means is Benocide is winning the race to the bottom.

Actually it is worse - gold is far higher than 2008, for example...

The only reason DXY is so low is the Euro still has a lot of German influence, and they have a bad history with hyperinflation so are a bit more wary of it.

The British, Japanese, etc have no qualms about printing, though they aren't quite as creative with it as Benocide.

SECONDED!!  I've requested this of Tyler a number of times - hasn't happened yet. There should be an easier way to indicate support for a post/poster than having to post an entire comment, even if it's only "10+".  Something like the "fan" button over at HuffPo?

Another feature I'd like to see is an easy way to keep track of one's comments, & responses to them.  (Unless I've missed something?)  It's easy on HuffPo.  Here on ZH it's like a "fire-and-forget missive" (sic).  Anything that makes it easier & saves surfing TIME is a plus - there's only so many net-hours in a net-day.  ;=)

China is JUNK.

China owes their EXISTENCE to the U.S.A.

China owes their "ECONOMIC MIRACLE" to the U.S.A.


Most of you folks seem to post comments that refer to versions of history that happened within the last 20 years.


You are children of propaganda.

Stupid question since I don't trade fx, since the 52 week low is breached, in theory no support line until 72?

Some at 74, light support at ~72, armageddon after that.

Hi Maos Dog.

I'm watching for 72nd St. as the next intersection on our way to the city dump.

No worrys. When all those TIPS treasuries start puking all over china like a stomach virused george bush puking all over japanese dignitaries it's really no problem.

JP Morgan has enough silver to fill 6 contracts. So that should take care of it.

We could impeach them, but what could their successors do to get us out of this mess?  The economy has been so mismanaged since at least 2008 that we've completely painted ourselves in a corner.

Rather than get a new chairman, we should be looking for an alchemist or two, so the feds can change lead into gold.  That might work.

What would help short-term would be for the Treasury and Fed to value our gold at market (like thte Euro-zone does).

That takes the gold asset value from $11 bn to $380 bn and buys a little time.

Details at FOFOA's new article, which I can never summarize well.  See the details for yourself!

And that's that!

And with a representative government it's so much easier, as you need only pass your power over to another and then expect him/her to perform the mischief on your behalf (and when it doesn't work out? blame them!).

Perpetual growth on a finite planet, what do you mean that it's not possible?  Hell, I'm voting for the next guy/gal, you're out of here!

Not a bad idea.  Maybe close off Pennsylvania Ave and have a drag race to settle things, like the adolescents the politicians in DC are. 

No, better yet, have it at the Grand Canyon, and set it up like Rebel Without a Cause.  Harry Reid in one car (Chevy Volt, no doubt) and John Boehner in the other (his father's Oldsmobile).

They drive side by side at top speed toward the edge.  The last one to dive out of the car before it goes over the cliff wins.

End the fed, reform the treasury, try Bernanke and the fed plus Timah Geithner and the CEO's of the big 4 for their crimes against humanity, shut the government down, replace these paid idiots with actual people-- maybe even community college students as they are most likely the least tainted institution in this country, and stop funding for the IMF, World Bank, and end centrally planned bullshit worldwide.  Problem sovled.
