BHO is 'outraged' by what has transpired.  Looks more like "fauxtrage" to me.

It can assassinate you by Presidential order

It can indefinitely detain you without trial or even after decleared innocent by trial

It can raid your house with para-military goon squads terrorizing your family in search of two guys with a pressure cooker

It can read and record all your private communications

It can throw you in a small cage where you will be molested and assualted for years on end

It can tax income never earned in or returned to the U.S.

It can seize 80% of your income with nothing other than a form signed by an IRS low level enforcer

Can't forget, it can even seize your property without ever charging you with any crime.

That is the rainmaker for them.

Sad that protesting illegality is now dismissed as 'activism.'

There's nothing activist about expecting government to respect the law.

Be careful. There are a lot around here who haven't had enough of being outraged over nothing. Managed dissent is a concept they've never heard of. Or the fact that the president is designed to be a polarizing figure so half the population can abhor or support him at any given time.

God forbid people actually get pissed at the IRS or CIA or SEC. No. They have stupidly call it all Obama's fault as if the guy isn't an empty suit who watches Sportscenter all day.

Yep. Free food, free phones, free cash, etc.

Of course it isn't free.

Actually isn't it smarter to have a mole inside one of the firms on the early fed memo list ?  This way he was never included or a part of the conspiracy ring but can certainly profit from it.

Imagine if hedge fund managers unite against US gov't directed terrorist activities. The gov't doesn't give a shit about thousands of people losing their homes, or unable to feed their families, but what would the gov't do if guys who have billions in walking around money call them on their shit.

NM, that was cheap weed talkin'.

Exactly RSloane. If BG really wanted to stand up and be noticed, he would tweet that he dumped all his treasuries and is accumulating physical gold.

Instead, the answer for him, is medium duration corporates....or whatever the fund of the month is.

I think he did both on the PIMCO website. Gross and El-Erian both got laughed off the set of  CNBC when they announced that PIMCO was selling off its treasuries. This was a year or two back, you would have to page through Gross's monthly reports to find where and when. He then started buying treasuries again for whatever reason I don't know. Gross is very open about buying physical gold and has bitched about having to compete with the Chinese in purchase prices for significant amounts. Gross has been also fairly open in stating that there was no recession, but there is/ was a depression, that income inequality is unsustainable, and that the US gov't in the past has confiscated gold and there is no reason to believe they won't do it again.
