Ron Paul gets more donations from the military than all other GOP candidates COMBINED.  He also gets more than the Commander in Chief himself.  What does that tell you?

Dropped $500 today

Here are your transaction details:
Donation amount: $500.00
Transaction date/time: 2011-11-11 09:10:24
Transaction ID: x1x4x0x6x

Makes $1,103 for the year.  $2,500 the max donation for Presidential candidate right? Peter B. Lewis of Progressive Insurance somehow donated $5,000 directly to Obama though.

But I love when oil is the best performer on the week.  Perhaps this will wake up the regular Joey and Janey Chardonnay that they are paying a huge price to allow the Wall Street criminals to continue to move the levers of power and steal massive amounts of money.  Only when they see $4 at the pump can they start to understand just how sick teh system is, how criminal the politicians are and how evil the money creators truly are.  I can't think of much else that will wake them up.

Want to get off the roller coaster?  Uncle Sam wants you to know there is plenty of room for your money in U.S. Treasuries.

Be safe.

Be patriotic.

There is no inflation.

ZIRP forever.

And don't forget that as a patriotic American you have to love The MIC.  The military must have a shitload of PR people working for them.  It is easy to see that we are inundated with the "I must love the military" message.  Then I turn on the TV and see that North Carolina and Michigan State are playing a basketball game on an aircraft carrier.  WTF?

I dont have the stainless steel balls to play this market right now.  My father in law though is loving it.  He has so far called it quite well, straddling this monster and legging in and out with the moves.  Probably will get a tit caught in the ringer when this tape picks a direction (probably bullish) - but at this point I think he is playing with the houses money anyhow.

Tell the dude above
50 percent vanguard conservative growth.
30 percent cash and or short term bond funds
20 percent gold.

You can probably keep up with inflation.
Hold your own in a deflation.....and....

forget the whole game and have fun with your life.

If you are feeling really frisky substitute moderate growth.

If you have money you dont need for ten years put it in EWZ. You will thank me for it.

be patient.  making .00% on cash still feels better to me than when the 20 - 30% drop comes (and this time it's not bouncing back)

I don't expect that large changes (not this year anyway), but 5 to 10% moves are likely.

I'm 50% cash now, mostly PM miners. 25% down this year, by the way :-)

I dont know about you folks, but watching this shit has been exhausting lately.  The pace at which the BS is flinging around is simply amazing.  The sheer volume of headlines, truthful or not, creates the illusion that something positive has actually happened.  When, in fact, nothing positive has happened at all.  Systemic risk is even higher now that it was a week ago.

Oh it's stunning. You can literally put the pin in the calendar any time in the last 3 years and move 30 days further, and in any 30 day increment things are worse. Always less jobs compared to the growth in the workforce. Always more homes in foreclosure.

It is beyond belief. Remember the first year of the Obama administration, everything was about health insurance. Everything from Obama was about fixing that issue is the same as fixing the economy. Everything was about increasing coverage.


Yet the projection was for a 6.5 million INCREASE by now!

It was this huge crisis then, all we ever talked about. And here we are with 11 million people LESS covered than projected, and we don't even hear a single peep about it any more. Somehow it was this all consuming crisis then, and now we have 4.5 million people less covered by health insurance, but there apparently is no health insurance crisis at all now.

In late 2008 after the election we entered the world of the surreal - the Obam Era, and up has been down and bad has been good and fraud has been openly embraced and rewarded and the people have been openly and brazenly shit on and told to enjoy it ever since.

Nothing like volatility to drive up equity option contract values.  Dance close to the door on expiry's and ring the cash register every week.  Fucking amazing.

Kinda like all ponzi schemes....Gotta keep new people coming in so you can steal your share and make it look like everything is just normal. Their all suckers ralleys now, just remember that the house never loses and the Casinos just continue to get bigger and bigger.

Stox are just a barometer of loose monetary policy. But Fed is still boxed in with a foot on the brake. And without monetary stim stox will never run. The catch-22 is that if reckless money printing resumes stox will never keep up with the loss in dollar purchasing power. A losss because the house has the odds on this one.

Yesterday and today I closely followed movements of S&P on 2 hour chart and it really looks like someone is painting nice TA pics for unsuspectful traders. Both yesterday and today the index moved perfectly alongside a rising channel (yesterday afternoon) and sideways (today) and it seemed so artificial.

Either way, I used today and yesterday to dump (at a significant loss) all positions except one PM miner that were losing money as I believe I'll be able to buy them cheaper in coming weeks.

The whole freaking thing is a farce. Just look at those headlines - e.g. Euro Climbs Versus Dollar on Optimism Europe Is Tackling Its Debt Crisis - what a joke...
