    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Get'cher Dow 13K Hats Here...

Tyler Durden's picture


Retirement-Off! The Dow just crossed back under the magical 13,000 level for the first time in two months...Having crossed this rubicon for the first time on Februray 21st, we can reflect on eight months well spent... and the sound of millions of retirees sifting through the 'Help Wanted' pages is deafening - as those 'young-people' that voted for change will continue to participate less in the workforce.

Dow 13000...


A two-month roundtrip of hope...


And the reality in our country...


The New Normal: "Sell in February and go away"

WMT up 23% YTD, with a 2.16% div yield.

The business model of old employees, EBT card acceptance, bad food, and cheap clothing is strong.

At what level has Buffett sold billions in S&P puts to finance his oligarchy?   Will be fun to watch him defend and ultimately surrender like S&P 1,000 the last go-round…

Republicans now have zero incentive to agree to any fiscal cliff deal.  The longer they hold out, the more they gain.  A deal will not be reached until the last minute as I said previously.

S&P 1260 here we come.

Not seeing S&P dropping now with Qeternity.

40 Billion a month buys the S&P wherever they want it.

A random thought:  Can you have a fiscal cliff with unlimited printing?

Now they're just anything someone might think is kinda bad.

Crowding out younger workers? bullshit


Young workers just want the check from the gov.... EBT participation more likely....

Younger workers are definately being crowded out of the marketplace.  Just look around at any non-retail job and you'll see its dominated by a much older workforce who has no intention of retiring any time soon, because they're still paycheck to paycheck themselves.

yes but the young workers dont care to work- not even a competition.. they just want the check/EBT card.

Fuck off.  I went to school for a BSBA in finance, got good grades, was involved on campus, leadership experience, passed the CFA L1 right after graduation and have been working my ass off to find any finance/accting/business job that I can and I am still unemployed today.  I am not alone.  There might be a lot of fucking losers coming out of school but there is not much of a reason to try when people like me cant even find an employer to grant them the privlege of interning for free.


Ill be going on any form of welfare/foodstamps I can get once I pass that one year unemployed mark and I hope it comes straight out of your pension.  Maybe Obama will spot me an iToy.

Willing to move to Texas? 

No state income tax. 

Net exporter.

Lawmakers only meet for a few weeks every other year.

Right to work state (few unions).

Leading the nation in job creation for many years.

Plenty of cheap labor.

Plenty of ignorant competition.

Texas, if you can't make it here, you probably can't make it anywhere.

Willing to move to Afganistan for the right experience haha.  Ive applied for a few leadership/financial development programs that happened to be in texas but Im taking a closer look now.  Thanks for the tip.  It looks to be a bigger hub than I had thought and there are some good opportunities in energy in particular.

You have the bs machine going - I know plenty of 20 somethings, mostly college grads, that are way underemployed - but working while they look for something closer to their skill level, and are not finding it. I don't know what crowd you hang with, but the vast majority of young people I know are working, about 1/4 working two crap jobs, while trying to find a better job. None of them is asking the gubermint to help them.

What young person wants a career flipping burgers or greeting Walmart customers anyway...?

Wed, 11/07/2012 - 11:40 | 2956125 Shizzmoney

Right.....maybe its the young people demanding for better working conditions, more say and a better understanding of why their pay isn't keeping up with living costs (thanks, Bernanke!), and being fed up with peddling Chinese crap while being suppressed at a corporate gig where management just does not give a fuck about them when it comes to nut cutting time.

"Take your job at Walmart, serf". 

NO person at America, young, old, etc.......should have to settle for this crap.  Dissent is waning and it's not because of desire...we read the internet.  It's there.

Desent is waning because corporations and the political elites spend billion of dolalrs telling the uneducated masses that settling is OK.

That's the one thing I cant stand fro mthe professional left" - they tell you its OK to settle, that the "good jobs are coming". It's all bullshit, just like the GOP and their hatred of women, brown people, and taxes on big corporations (but it's OK to raise *my* taxes, tho).

Yeah, why flip burgers for a year or two when you know damn well you're qualified to be a CEO if only those old 60 yr.olds would just step down and hand the keys to the executive washroom to you.
