Caption Contest: The Market's Most Secret Weapon

Tyler Durden's picture


On November 16, and again today, one person boldly went where so many have gone before, and made sure that Nancy Pelosi's alleged SPY calls don't expire worthless, and by uttering a few words widely misinterpreted by the headline scanning, market-making algos both then, and today, preserved all confidence in the centrally-planned monetary policy farce formerly known as "the market." Who is this unmasked crusader against the evils of efficient markets, and for the unquestioned glory of authoritarian Economist PhD's in charge of the Fed's trading desk? This man:

Headline for the movie "Cry, and Cry Again".  The baby blue tie fits the emotional immaturity.  Just a freaking gong show already.

We're putting our top man on Mildred. 30 minutes of Bam Bam sitting across the table from her and he'll give us anything we want.

We now have a man with a tan
At the head of the House with no plan
But the fan won’t be hit
With a bucket of shit
‘Cause he’ll cry
And keep kicking the can.

Harry Reid is there to be the Authoritarian Communitarian ring leader maintaining TSA style authoritarianism and subverting Constitutional law. I hope he dies of old age soon.

Collectivists are the worst kind of people, and usually psychopath control freak lunatics with brain damage, mental disorders, and of low mental capacity. They usually try to get other people to do their dirty work for them, and speak in childish sophomoric diatribes and insults.

The ideologues are tied into knots
their utopia plans are for naught
the people wish they would think
instead of marching to the brink
and come up with plans that don't stink.

It's an atavistic throwback to the reptilian Homeworld. Sunning on a rock is what you naturally want to do after you crawl out from under one. For other examples check out Pelosi and Lagarde.

As for a title "Gotta love those algos. Believe every word you tell them, just like the voters"

any male over the age 14 still using tanning beds is a bit creepy at best.

maybe underneath his suit and baby blue tie he is all pasty white.   only his lobbyists know for sure.
