R.I.P. all my future pay checks that are dead before even born.

 

I'm just glad I managed to rescue my past ones with gold & silver.

Red weeklies though - in some cases - equities that is.

And redder on the day.

In some places, much redder.

Doesn't go with the Monday's are always green scenario.

The devaluing or default of the dollar will be Obama's "black swan."

Cus every President gets one black swan on his watch.

Bush was special because he had two swans on his watch!

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.

Not sure what you guys are talking about.  The bid on the Roach Motel [SPY] is persistent...blissful, you might say.  And no one cares that the next Iphone will have the option of radioactivity...or that the IMF is about to assert itself as the new ruling class in America...along with the New American Marxist/Banker party.

Com'mon fellas....just turn on the BlowHorn [CNBC] where options junkies J. and P. Najarian will help you feel better.  No one there is talking about the death of the world's reserve currency.

I hear JP Morgan earnings are going to rip the cover, baby!

The battle between stocks and the dollar is a toss up.  Can anyone really say stocks are worth less than dollars?  The action seems reasonable for a dollar decline.

Well, hello Steve Grasso.  Despite that your comment does not actually deserve a response, and really sounds like something some prick in Hong Kong might say [because he heard someone else say it], my reply to you would be:

Can anyone really say that unicorns do not exist?

"Can anyone really say that unicorns do not exist?"

No one can prove that unicorns do not exist, ergo unicorns exist.

You, sir, qualify for a government propaganda job.

I would take stocks over USD. Some companies actually make a product that people desire. The USD might not be so desirable in a few months/years. The Reichsmark no longer exists, but German companies from the pre-Nazi era still exist.

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

Give him a break. Brazil wasnt as relaxing as he thought it would be. Clearly he needs another break. It's hard work lying, spinning, and inventing new terms all day. You try pretending a war is a no fly zone all day and then you would see how much he needs another vacation. Air force 1 stewardesses are essential service and won't get furloughed
