Uncle Sam Wants You To Invest In "The Patriot Fund"

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Tired of having your easily-earned (thanks to Benny and the Inkjets) wealth effect go straight to fund the pressure cooking terrorist operations of ole' evil Osama (because that's how stock market investing apparently works)? Have no fear: because Uncle Sam wants you to invest in The Patriot Fund. "The Patriot Fund, www.patriotfund.com, was launched to meet the previously unmet need of a terror-free investment option."  So... there is an unmet need of terror-free investing? It appears so. And while Uncle Sam doesn't actually demand you invest your "money on the sidelines" in this latest carnival attraction of the ever more ridiculous US stock market circus, we give it a few months before it becomes a choice: put your money here or get an IRS audit. Because what is more important than "terror-free" investing?...

Maybe goes something like this??

1st:  Race to cash.  (equities crash, bond yields rise fast).

2nd:  Yield-chasing race to bonds (causing yields to fall fast).  Like '08, but we're starting much lower this time (10y at 2.5%), so maybe they go negative?  If so...

3rd:  Race to gold for safety (and food, etc).

Are there really that many suckers out there that jump any time someone says "terror"?

Maybe that's the "unmet" market that they are talking about (i.e. suckers)

The "Patriot Fund" is managed by Ascendant Advisors LLC - a group of Texas boys with lots of Goldman and Lehman pedigrees. So I just took a wild flyer of a guess and checked to see if they may be connected to Dubya. Don't have time to really dig, but saw some political contributions. 

But this is worthy of a guffaw: The President of Ascendant is James H. Lee. If it's the same James H. Lee that wrote this humdinger of a poem back in 2004, we are clearly booger deep in the Twilight Zone -- like North Korea, Kim Jong Il deep... God help us all...

From "James H. Lee"

President Bush is a Patriot and 
A hero brave and true,
Who loves this nation very much, 
And our Red, White and Blue,
And loves the Constitution, 
And what it stands for here,
And the Declaration of Independence,
Which to my heart is dear.

He loves the men and women 
Who've fought for and who've died
To keep this nation terror free, 
And sometimes even cried
When things weren't going right here, 
And men were forced to be
Subjected to dictators, 
And wanted to be free.

A God-fearing man is he, 
With Father as his guide,
Who often prays for guidance, 
Which helps him to decide
The things he has to do here 
To protect our nation's cause,
And to uphold our liberty, 
And this great nation's laws.

He is a man of action,
Who knows what we must do
To help protect man's freedom, 
And keep this nation true,
True to what men fought for, 
And died that we might be
Free from kings and rulers, 
And free from tyranny.

God bless this land we live in, 
And bless our leader, too,
And bless the men and women 
Who chose to pursue
The path which safeguards freedom, 
To fight for right and truth,
Who've given their last measure, 
Though old or in their youth,

That you and I might live in peace, 
In a land where freedom rings,
A land where heroes and patriots, 
And even foreigner sings
"God bless America, land that I love,
Stand beside her, and guide her, 
Through the night with the light from above."

Oh may this be our constant prayer, 
And may our leaders be
Inspired as they face each task
To keep our nation free,
Free from men and nations, 
And tyrants, every one,
Who'd rob us of God-given rights, 
And victories we've won.

When I hear our fearless leader 
Defend our nation's cause,
It makes me want to stand and cheer 
For this great nation's laws,
And to salute with honor, 
And pride and dignity,
Our leader, President Bush, 
Who's trying hard to be

A Christian, like our Fathers 
Who were honest, brave and true,
Who wrote the constitution, 
And chose God's will to do,
Declaring independence 
From other nations here,
So you and I might live in peace, 
And not in constant fear.

Yes, God bless America, 
And our Red, White and Blue,
And God bless President Bush, 
Our leader, brave and true,
And God bless every patriot, 
Who loves true liberty,
And those who have defended it, 
And kept our nation free.

You know you're about to get fleeced when they put "Patriot" in front of anything...

You know you are likely to get called up, given a gun, transported to a country you never heard of, and then shoot someone that you never had a beef with in the first place. Oh and get shot at by the guy who wants you out of his country....... Sounds all too familiar.

I'm not sure about 'fleeced' but you can be sure you're going to lose some 'rights' and 'freedoms' whenever the word gets used. On that note, maybe they should rename the NSA to the PSA - Patriot Security Agency, or maybe the National Patriot Agency, or National Patriot Security Agency - you know, give that whole 'spying on the population' thing a nice patriotic spin to it.  Then anytime anybody said anything negative about the (formerly named NSA) agency, they'd automatically be acting 'unpatriotic'.

I'm not buying anything if the government is selling it.  Frankly you're a patriot if you don't.  As an American, your allegiance is to your country, not the current government.  Especially if they're lying and oppressing you.

Nick Barisheff says it was Marc Faber who coined the words that investors can be "their own central bank" by owning physical gold in their own possession.

I believe we may see a little deflation in financial assets for some time.

Then there will be more QE, Abenomics and so on... when confidence in the currency fails, inflation will start rising. Then #3 may happen.

If investors believed in bonds, they wouldn't be falling today. It is a failed market. Correlation is lost. So I don't believe in #2 happening just before #3.

If you don't pay, well you are a terrorist then.
