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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!

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'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.

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.

gonna hafta lever to stay ahead of it- that IS the point.

The problem is that leverage can't create oil, so financial speculation will be (and has been) the only game left that can outrun the base inflation.  Real production is a loser on two fronts, one because it can't make even a meager yield (can't be levered), and 2 because the yields possible from leveraged speculation kill it.

This is a DIRECT consequence of a financial system built on debt.  In the early stages of exponential curves with disparate growth rates, it really makes no difference.  As debt compounds, however, speculation becomes more and more attractive from a pure ROI perspective.

I mean, think about it; you can lever up financially with very little "capital."  How much does it take to drill a real well or mine a real rock or build a real factory to manufacture a real widget?

Okay Robo,

How long before the NASDAQ gets back to it's high from 11 years ago? I mean, it only has a little more than 2,000 points to go.

It's not when you ask "what if i'm right" but "but if i'm wrong" that "you have a problem."

The new word that most of you should get use to over the summer and early fall!

Extortion!

Extortion, outwresting, and/or exaction is a criminal offense which occurs when a person unlawfully obtains either money, property or services from a person(s), entity, or institution, through coercion. Refraining from doing harm is sometimes euphemistically called protection. Extortion is commonly practiced by organized crime groups.

Honestly is anyone short this market?  Bernanke lowered growth forecasts and worse flashed the "final call for alcohol" lights and the markets rip.  This is the only place I can admit I am personally short without risking public execution. This market is F'ed up.

Fed/Up indeed.  Scary sometimes when "someone comes to work and does there job" isn't it.

Not a day goes by that I wish someone had opened my eyes to silver/gold sooner.  I only got tuned in a year ago.  :-/

 

How many others are out there right now scratching their heads wondering why if things keep getting better, why they're working harder for less and less?

Hmm. March 15th it was at -2 percent.

March didn't the government spend about a trillion dollars.

I think people NEED to be asking them just what they were buying?

Actually it's negative.  You forgot to adjust for inflation too.
