Spot When Bernanke Started Speaking

Looks like he's still got it... (or the NY Fed Trading desk wanted to send him off with a smile on his face...)

Here is the wordcloud of his speech:

What can that asshole say anymore that would "move" the "market"?

"I'm gonna help Yellin make decisions!"

Really - Why does that asshole even matter?

The market responses whenever a Fed Chairman speaks are a courtesy, managed electronically, and an indication that the regime still controls the show, right? Everybody knows that, right? It's like the end-of-trading-ramp-ups, i'nnit?

No, it's just the free market!

When will someone write a book and come up with a theory about FAKE MARKETS.

Oh, wait, Karl Marx started something like that.

The market is totally manipulated by Fed policy. The graphs don't lie. Anyone on wall-street who claims to be a capitalist or working in a free market is a mother fucking liar. Proof? Look around you!

SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP. BERNAKE. The only reason you speak is because you faggots are losing control of the bond and stock market. Shut the Fuck up and let the markets adjust accordingly.  You Tapered, you thought it was fine at the time -so shut the fuck up and deal with it.  WE. DON'T. WANT. TO. HEAR. IT.


EDIT: I serioulsy want to punch this fucking bitch - I can barley contain my rage. They can't speak out of both sides of their mouths forever....

aw, be entertained. You can't stop the burning of Rome or the filling of the vomitorium.

Sit back with a scotch & a pipe and watch it burn with a smile on your face.

From a distance.

Ummm, it's hard to be entertained, as you put it, when my Wife and I are becoming insolvent in a very slow manner, and watching our future slip away - I'm only 35.  I feel like a man without a Country.  American's are growing dumber by the day, example - losers lining up to register their long guns.  WTF.  I just want it to collapse already so we can get on with it.  If there was another Coutnry that allowed me to take my guns I'd be there with the quickness, but since that's not gonna happen - I'm gonna fight it here in Texas.  


As Ozzy Ozz so eloquently put it - "Let it Die"

Then maybe you ought to save more, move & find a safe place.
If you're holding out IN AMERICA you're not AT A DISTANCE and I did put that in my comment for a very good reason.
America's gonna burn & if you stay in it you'll burn with it.

You can easily migrate to a nation WHICH PERMITS GUNS and buy guns there.

If you hold out just to hold the precise exact guns you've got you'll end up losing it all - guns and ammo included.

America's downfall will make North Korea look like Tahiti.

So funny.  My god.  There's more bullish energy sitting around than ever before...traders are trigger happy.  They want to buy so bad they cant contain themselves.  ANYTHING is bullish.  They know it.  We know it.  It's gonna be even crazier when Yellen takes over.  She's gonna sweet talk the market even more than Bernanke.  Just long, oily, orgasmic market hand jobs to make everyone spooge all year long.  It's a gross manipulation of the human mind.  All Yellen needs to do is stand there and say "Me love you long time" and we set new record highs.  Thats why youd be CRAZY to be short this market.  C R A Z Y.
