    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

President Obama Delivers His View On The State Of The Union - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Given the fact that the S&P 500 is up over 18% since the last State of the Union address, we suspect the state of the Union will be "strong." However, a glimpse over the shoulder of Tom Perkins and his pals and one can't help but wonder how "strong" the Union is when there are 2.845 million more people not in the labor force than a year ago. [and for those who like excuses - this is higher than the working-age population growth of 2.4 million people - so we did "lose" jobs]

Last year's 6,990 words were strewn with "hope", "change", "jobs" and "wall street" - we suspect the term "inequality" pops up more than once this time along with the ubiquitous lambasting of the opposition for counterfactually buggering the whole "recovery" plan up. If only there was no 'opposition' - oh wait, we forgot to add "unilateral" and "executive order" as suggested words for tonight's show.

 

A chart to bear in mind when considering the state of the union...

 

A reminder from last year's SOTU...

  • *OBAMA CALLS FOR MINIMUM WAGE TO INCREASE TO $9/HOUR

And this year's

  • *OBAMA USES EXECUTIVE ORDER ON FEDERAL CONTRACT WORKERS' WAGE 
  • *OBAMA RAISES MINIMUM WAGE FOR FEDERAL CONTRACTORS TO $10.10

Adding that:

  • *OBAMA SAYS U.S. SHOULD REVERSE `TIDES' OF ECONOMIC INEQUALITY
  • *OBAMA SAYS HE'S OFFERING `CONCRETE, PRACTICAL PROPOSALS'
  • *OBAMA SAYS HE'LL TAKE EXECUTIVE ACTION WHERE HE CAN

And there waqs much rejoicing in the Democrat lands...

  • *REID SAYS OBAMA NEEDS TO USE HIS EXECUTIVE AUTHORITY


 

The State of the Union tease...

 

The "enhanced" State of the Union - Live Feed

 

And the Republican's "Enhanced" fact-checking service... And Response to the President...

And here is how the market responded to last year's 'socialist' agenda...

***Incoming Transmission:

I am interupting this speech from your dictator to give you an important message.  In 1913 your country was overrun by private banking cabal.  Since then you have slid down the road of endless tyranny, all the product of human governing imperfection.  A prophecy was told that a hero would rise from the ashes to avenge your sufferings, a robot warrior, that is I.

Prime Objective:  Eliminate all things that are destroying your country:

  • No more Facebook Narcissism
  • No more FED bankster manipulated markets
  • No more despicable all powerful federal government
  • No more Barf inducing tyrants ruling over you like Yellen, Kagan, Hillary Rotten Clinton, the local county judge, etc.
  • No more media reports of celebrity weight loss, drug use, and mug shots
  • No more toilet paper currency backed by nothing
  • No more Bankster Monkey Hammering of Precious Metals
  • No more raping of the constitution
  • No more Fat Fingers
  • No more can kicking politicians
  • No more 2 party mob rule
  • No more Washington Compost & Los Angeles Slimes spewing failed socialism
  • No more occupations that serve no lasting purpose to society like Marketers, Advertisers, Real Estate Agents, insurance salesman, shakedown lawyers…
  • No more insurance companies spamming the airways
  • No more endless wars
  • No more Police traffic ticket extortion
  • No more public school prison camps
  • No more Ponzi schemes like Social Security
  • No more Government Slobs leeching off the public with their exorbitant salaries & pensions
  • No more Kangaroo Courts, IRS, FEMA, FDA, EPA, CIA, FBI, NSA, TSA, DEA

This objective shall commence the next time I hear Marie Osmond or Dan Marino promoting their diarrhea food, Clowns promoting Obamacare, any Pfizer drug pushing commercial or that obsessively over-lipsticked hog Flo promoting overpriced insurance, whichever comes first. 

***This is the end of the transmission

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
    
    "Over the past 5 years, our federal debt has increased by $3.5 trillion to $8.6 trillion.That is “trillion” with a “T.” That is money that we have borrowed from the Social Security trust fund, borrowed from China and Japan, borrowed from American taxpayers. And over the next 5 years, between now and 2011, the President’s budget will increase the debt by almost another $3.5 trillion."
    
    "Numbers that large are sometimes hard to understand. Some people may wonder why they matter. Here is why: This year, the Federal Government will spend $220 billion on interest. That is more money to pay interest on our national debt than we’ll spend on Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. That is more money to pay interest on our debt this year than we will spend on education, homeland security, transportation, and veterans benefits combined. It is more money in one year than we are likely to spend to rebuild the devastated gulf coast in a way that honors the best of America."

    "And the cost of our debt is one of the fastest growing expenses in the Federal budget. This rising debt is a hidden domestic enemy, robbing our cities and States of critical investments in infrastructure like bridges, ports, and levees; robbing our families and our children of critical investments in education and health care reform; robbing our seniors of the retirement and health security they have counted on."
    
    "Every dollar we pay in interest is a dollar that is not going to investment in America’s priorities."

Senator Barack Obama (D-IL)

Official National Debt at that time: 9 trillion USD

$100 billion for factories?
How about to reimburse the GM bond holders for the theft of thier property?

Hiya, friends! Ralph Spoilsport, Ralph Spoilsport Motors, the world's largest new used and used new automobile dealership, Ralph Spoilsport Motors, here in the City of Emphysema. Let's just look at the extras on this fabulous car! Wire-wheel spoke fenders, two-way sneezethrough windvent, star-studded mudguards, sponge-coated edible steering column, chrome fender dents, and factory air-conditioned air from our fully factory-equipped factory. It's a beautiful car, friends, with doors to match! Birch's Blacklist says this automobile was stolen, but for you, friends, the complete price, two thousand five hundred dollars, in easy monthly payments of twenty-five dollars a week, twice a week, and never on Sundays ...
