If We All Move To Montana There Will Be No Slowdown

Tyler Durden's picture

We have explained the linkage between an inflating Federal Reserve balance sheet; the intended consequence of that excess (fungible) reserve liquidity leaking into non-printable assets; and that energy costs (and gas prices implicitly) are the end-game 'regulator' of that excess as they crush (again and again) the hopes of multiple-expansion-based equity strategies. However, even as prices of Gas surge once again towards the critical $3.80 level that has capped rallies in the last 5 years, the WSJ notes that Montana and Wyoming are still seeing prices below $3.25. Of course this is all just transitory - as we are told time after time - but the reason it is reflexively transitory is simply because of the effect on all the red states in the chart below driving consumers to cutback. Transitory, yes; slow-down-inducing for sure; the only thing that stops the world's central bankers going into a printing frenzy, absolutely.


If only we all moved to Montana or Wyoming, there'd be no slowdown?


and as a reminder... why this matters...

I hear it is nice in Montana in the Spring.  Sounds like a plan, Tyler.  Everyone to the Montana side of the boat...NOW!

And I will have a round American woman and raise rabbits and she will cook them for me.

"I would have liked to have seen Montana" he said with his last, dying breath.

Why is it that in American movies Russian/Soviet characters have British accents?

<Never mind. It makes just as much sense as anything else I see on a daily basis these days.>

Christ, I'm going to be lucky to make it to Texas, nevermind Montana.

I dream of placing my hands on Orly's chicken breasts.

Note: Texas may morph into the next Socialist state as Kalifornians relocate to Texas. Texas should have set up policies to both the hoard of liberals relocating to Texas. As more liberals vote in Texas, the more likely it will elect liberal polticians.

Obama declared TX as the a new battleground state.  Colbert just had Jeremy Bird on, the Obama campaign "mastermind", who is focusing on turning Texas into a blue state (Battleground Texas http://battlegroundtx.com/ )



Just reinforcing your point...

If only it wasn't colder than my ex-wife's chriveled up rock of a heart in Montana in the winter .....

Yep, happened in Colorado.

After witnessing the disaster of the blue presidency of G. W. Bush, I look around and all the Texas big cities have big blue mayors.  They have an inrush of blue state voters from across the US and blue voters from Mexico.  The restraints on government will not last very long as the limited government oldsters die off and the blue hoards sag what's left.  ND and MT - I just wish they weren't so freakin' cold.

After 30 years of immigration laws demanding that all legal immigrants be non white, and 30 years of encouraged illegal immigration from South of the border....what did you think was going to happen ?

You may regret that, they seem a bit cold and hard to me. ;-)

Because otherwise you end up with whatever it was that Harrison Ford was doing in "K19: The Widowmaker."

Why is it that in American movies Russian/Soviet characters have British accents?

Why do American film directors seem to feel that the ancient Romans all spoke with British accents as well?

If they didn't speak with a british accent no one would listen to what they had to say. 
akak's picture

I wouldn't mind it so much if the typical British accent were not so mushy and mealy-mouthed --- every time a Brit comes on the screen, I have to double the volume and strain just to try to understand what the Hell they are saying.  If it's a damned Aussie, I just give up and turn it off; what those people do to vowels should be against the Geneva Convention.

Theosebes Goodfellow's picture

I once worked with a Scot and needed a translator. Couldn't understand a damned thing he ever said.

akak's picture

I once worked with a Texan in a very analogous situation.

The guy was nice as could be, and not uneducated by any means, but DAMN did he have a thick accent!

In the last 20 years...most of the Russians' English teachers were from British Isles.

Split into two "USA's.

Central (conservative) and Coastal (liberal).

Central for production. Manufacturing and Agriculture.

Coastal for.....tourism??....welfare.

Kirk2NCC1701's picture

Split into 2x3 or 3x3 regions!  With real money.  95% of global problems solved.

And I will love him and pet him...and I will never stroke his fur backwards...and I shall name him George.

Stoploss's picture

Yes, but im afraid if we all move there it will sink into the ground, and we will all be buried alive.

lolmao500's picture

Capt. Vasili Borodin: I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a "recreational vehicle." And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?
Captain Ramius: I suppose.
Capt. Vasili Borodin: No papers?
Captain Ramius: No papers, state to state.

No papers?? What kind of science fiction movie is this??

Stupid foreigners question: Are sales taxes included?

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

There are various taxes included. It varies state by state and will seem minor compared to the EU.



Dr. Engali's picture

There are no stupid foreigners questions...just stupid foreigners.


Before all of the people who live in literalville beat me up that was just a joke...get your panties out of a wad.
