Tyler Durden's picture

There's your whopper of a YTD stock rally. Just don't try to buy anything with the proceeds from those booked (cause they are booked right?) gains.

June RBOB up 7 cents today, that's about 11-12 cents at the pump tomorrow.  That will go over well with the plebes.

Do I have to pay taxes on these "gains" ?

SheepDog-One's picture

Oh YEA! Thats the hillarious part, although the 90% raise is an actual loss in purchasing power terms, theres still a 90% cap gains! Thats the real hillarious part for all the stock fanclub, LOST purchasing power, yet still have to pay 90% cap gains on it. SWEET!

Chuck Norris Sucks.  Do not know what you are trying to imply and care less. Sounds like you would not take a pay raise cause you have to pay more taxes.

What he is saying is "this isn't a raise, you pay your employer to work there."

tyler:  are you ok?  didn't you compression short the emini's yest afternoon?  maybe your butterfly is up & away, but is this closing for you?  time to double down?

Ya see there, Chuckles - that's what makes you "smarter than the average bear" (hey hey Boo-Boo - do I smell a tax-robbing-wealth-stealing-pickinick-basket?!??).

That's their plan, and has been the whole time. *Real* gains: virtually nothing. *Nominal* gains - tax the shit out of that. More taxes in their pocket for NO gain in your pocket.


You have stumbled upon one of their biggest secrets. Your average JoeOnTheStreet has no clue how this works.

Thanks Sgt. Sausage.   I could not have said it better

My retired late 70's Mom tyring to live off of life insurance from when my Dad passed away young - was taxed to death this year; she called me nearly in tears a couple of weeks ago.

Her "investments" lost value, then "gained" it back (supposedly) and she is now paying punitive taxes on the "gains" simply on withdrawals she takes monthly to live. 

This on money that has already been taxed twice if not three times just to get it "in" to the "markets".

Have I said I have no allegiance to this ponzi nation lately?

You'll have a dip buying opportunity for the next six weeks as this pig gets roasted.

Where are Aka and Tmosely?  The idiots who kept pumping this thing and said I was stupid for(pretending to be) buying puts?

Forgiven, the peak is in for this run.  We will see $50 again but not likely for another year.  You still have time to sell and restock with even more this summer.

Oh the pain they must be feeling.  My (imaginary)puts are mightily green today!  Woot!  Wait til this pig breaks below $40.....

If Asia buys this dip they are morons.....and it will not prop up this pig.
Silver to low $30's over the next six weeks.  The real pain is still yet to come!

Not even close bud.  I've been(pretending to be) scaling in and got some more(imaginaries) on the gap up this morning.  Now it's nothing but a green ride to the 30's.

But of course, now you will not believe me even tho I've said(SAID) I've been doubling down every day for the last five business days.

No way am I covering yet.....

Got some more (imagi-)puts at the open, 33, 37's and 40's for October.

It will still be a green ride to the 30's.  This is just the first green....

I would love to stay and play with you bagholders, but I have a date with a(nother imaginary)Porsche.

Remember, the low won't be hit for six weeks, so it's still not too late to get out.


See you in a few hours.

Some of dangertime's responses to my comments have been made without any apparent awareness of what I actually stated about him. This has happened so much I'm beginning to think that Dangertime may be an AI app targeted at trying to lower the price of silver.

I must admit "i said Even Steven" for the day.  I was wrong.  AGAIN I ASK:  what could possibly be wrong with a ROARING bull market?  (P.S.:  by all means answer like most who manage money "it's going to zero tomorrow.")  What you CAN say is "Death Take A Holiday"--great movie, although I might have the title off a little.

"A strong US $ in the American interest" - enough already! Nothing really said about safety of financial system or banking health.  Nothing about how flimsy these equity prices actually are or the recovery underneath.

Pladizow's picture

Bernanke is telling the truth when he says - "A strong US$ is in America's Interest"

However, most people unwisely assume that the interests of the FED/Banks align with those of America.

More and more so to influence the masses that he persuaded those of the Right that the faults of the Left were the faults of the German workman, and similarly he made it appear to those of the Left that the faults of the Right were simply the faults of the so-called 'Bourgeois,' and neither side noticed that on both sides the faults were the result of a scheme planned by alien devilish agitators. And only so is it possible to explain how this dirty joke of world history could come to be that [Bankers] should become the leaders of a Workers Movement. It is a gigantic fraud: world history has seldom seen its like.

No surprise really. Bankers need workers like workers need food.

The rich get richer because the poor have more kids.

I can't really blame the elites for devaluing the currency.  We've had years to reform/eliminate all these unconstitutional entitlement programs and get back to the actual duties and responsibilities of the Federal government.  The elites see the irresponsible people trying to take more and more from the responsible people. 

Atlas has shurgged.  The trouble is that it's actually hurting a lot of the responsible people too.  The few often ruin things for the many.

You'll still get your entitlement checks but just can't buy as much with them.  The elites make money off the bubbles in the markets.  Everyone wins!

Marc Faber explains it here:


Warning:  not politically correct.  Democrats don't like the painful truth.


Now, grill me a cheese:

bingaling's picture

I was under the assumption both dems and repubs voted to bail out the banks with 700 billion dollars - You are still thinking right and left but they both shaft you where it counts

narapoiddyslexia's picture

agree. left and right paradigm serves their interest.

MisterAmbassador's picture

Both did.  Both parties are the party of big government.  Neither party cares about the Constitution or free-market Capitalism.  Ron Paul is one of the few good men in government.  All those companies/banks/institutions should have failed.  Every time Republicans tried to reform these programs, Democrats threw a fit.  They just gave up by the 1990s.


Stop trying to put me into your little box.  I'm an absolute genius.  Read my other posts for evidence of my brilliance and higher understanding.

I'm going to be laughing my ass off when the country collapses and all the entitlement-lovers find out what happens when the dollar is worthless.


Holodomor2012's picture

If history repeats itself those entitlement-lovers will be armed with kalashnikov's and conscripted into the dekulakization brigade. 

MisterAmbassador's picture

Marc Faber would agree.

I'll be overdosing and leaving this world when it all falls apart; I've discussed that many times.

People have a right to fight for their lives and freedom.

They don't have a right to force/expect other people to support them.  It's one thing to ask for a helping hand; it's quite another to demand other people support you.

It's one thing to leech off your parents, a private charity, a friend, family member or someone or some institution that has to be accountable and has the power to cut you off because not doing so would cause them/it to fail.  It's quite another to institutionalize charity in this big government bureaucracy.  Plus, that gives people a false sense of security.  My mother doesn't understand that Social Security isn't an investment account that holds real assets (US Treasuries - LMAO).  She doesn't understand why if she paid into it all these years why she won't get it back.  I sympathize.  Those programs should never have been created to begin with.  Socialism is a Ponzi scheme.  You know, everyone loved Bernie Madoff - until he couldn't keep it going.  The same is true of our socialistic programs.  Then you'll get your riots and revolutions, etc.

Who wouldn't want free health care?  Who wouldn't want a guaranteed retirement?  I just understand that it cannot work.  Never has.  Never will.  The planet has finite resources.

You should never let those people get dependent in the first place.  That's the problem.  Jefferson warned about the Federal Reserve - it isn't constitutional - just like SS, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.

Now, if the Federal Reserve didn't exist (Thomas Jefferson warned us), these problems couldn't have been kicked down the road with artificially low interest rates.

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

I don't care if individual states want to do this nonsense because it's easy to leave a state.  The competition between states would keep them in check.  It's not easy to leave the country.  We'll all be going down with it - except for the elites with private jets.

I can type a lot on stimulants.


I think I might get some Imo's pizza later.  Mmm.

Is this what people mean by crack up boom? Every chart masturbates at high frequency to the tune of the falling dollar...Ben must have the biggest hard on right now.

disabledvet's picture

I don't know.  What is a "crack-up" boom?  I've never heard of this term--unless it is meant as some form of humor telling of course.  I just saw another "Arnie Gunderson" post and "he certainly show me the difference between a crack-up and a boom."  Not that anyone finds that funny of course.

RockyRacoon's picture

The only alternative is eventual economic collapse in what Mises called "the crack-up boom," or hyperinflation and the breakdown of the exchange economy.
