Below those words it further reads:

"It is on this rustic and desolate stretch of coastline where the dismembered remains of our board of directors and an unknown number of our politicians were disposed of by the Russian Mafia.  They will be missed.  (The Russian Mafia, we mean, not the other guys.)"

on the topic of Cyprus, anybody catch Bernanke's response to the question posed at 3:18pm as to whether Cyprus style bail-ins are possible if US worsens?
Bernanke stated they're possible if the Cyprus event or another event in Europe were to become contagious and the people lose confidence in the US dollar”!!

“…if the people lose confidence in the US dollar”!! And who might have caused that?

The Fed is now buying consumers, taking the money and giving it to non-producers who generally do not use it for growth. The Fed is giving the economy the seed corn and the economy is eating it; it is not planting it. It is political architecture that gets the money; i.e., the $8 billion to Harry Reid for his high speed rail, and essentially the welfare classes on both ends of the spectrum ($78 billion in 2012 for food stamps; $85 billion a month that goes to “the Mayfair economy of the well-to-do people and boosts asset prices of Warhols …”).

As Marc Faber said in 2012: “The monetary policies of the U.S. will destroy the world.”

In short, the money is not reaching the middle class, the producers on Main and Elm.

Everything is transient. There are no "solid values" in financial world. Gold, precious metals are not either, if you come to think of it.  

Now, 'Hope' and 'timeless'. Yeah. These features could well describe human spirit.

It is a shame greed's got the best of most of the people in the finance. It was bound to happen anyway, always been that way. 

There is something wrong by default in our system - money. And we can't seem to get away from it. We are bound to reap the seeds of our own greed.

Interesting. Still looks like show to me the double tax protest. They want to do this and they are trying to get it all their way. Cyprus WILL BE Russia by the time this is over.

HOPE those Russian mafiosi can't find me, as I place a SOLID VALUE on my knee caps. If they do, the pain will be TIMELESS.

Funny how this "vision statement" from the 2010 report DID NOT make it into the 2011 document...Hmm, could it be because YOU WERE FUCKING YOUR MUPPETS THE WHOLE TIME?
