Reality Check...

DJIA is up 10,000 pts in 4 years and anyone who didn't make some money off that is an epic loser.

If you weren't fully invested and long during $4 trillion of QE, you shouldn't be allowed to invest money [PERIOD].

And how exactly has value price discovery worked for the last four years? In the last four years you can't have called it "investing". You can't even have called it "speculating". At best, (and I seriously doubt this), you could have called it "gambling". Except for the fact that the game is totally and completely rigged. When the game is rigged, and I mean any game, it sucks to be a counterparty.

What CNBC or their talking heads DON'T talk about.
1) Janet Yellen said that if economic conditions deteriorate (read market goes down), the FED will change course and stop tapering.
2) No debt ceiling for the USA for more than a year.

After these two elements are in place who in his sane mind would worry about a market crash in fiat dollar terms? It'd be crazy.

You all should only worry about a fiat dollar crash in terms of its value in income producing assets.

You are assuming that they want the market to keep going up.  Maybe they have a different plan.  Maybe that plan is to crash the market for one reason or another.  Since it is completely controlled & manipulated, money in the market is subject to the whims of those who do the manipulating.  Do you know for sure that they want it to only go up forever?

Hey guys, I know most of you are anti-govrnment anti-Fed gold hoarding right wing terrorist , so what do you think about this patriotic comment from this youtube video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbhxPRamhHQ

  This Jim Willie Jackass thinks that American government and Fed's are dumb. I have news for you, the American government closed off their gold,silver and oil land for drilling and mining and call it the wildlife protection land in US. We are saving all that for the future when we used everyone's else.Then Fed's collected all that gold from all those countries way back when the Fed's issues bonds to all those countries worldwide who ship all their gold to Fed's when gold wasn't used as currency to print money anymore. Then Fed's print money to Americans Gov to build up their arm forces by doubling everyone military combine since WW2 to protect the Fed's Gold because they have the all the worlds gold in America. The Fed's have more gold then anybody can't imagine and still do. The Fed's have so much gold that no matter if the Chinese,India and Russia bought as much as they can every year, the Fed;s will still have 20 years and more of gold bars left over to sell them not counting the wildlife protection land that we are hiding all that gold,silver and oil in America. That why the United States will never crumb as number one power and the dollar will still be king for a long time. The United Sates Out smarted the Chinese and Russian in believing they could buy all the world gold and have no idea whats hiding in United States land and  Federal Gold reserve..

My father worked with the defense dept as a GS13 (government service rank) He was the man that had to buy jet fuel for the Air Force in the Iraq Shield war when we had just practically bombed them everyday. I asked my father, who's retired now, that everytime something happens that deals with America, you disappear for days to a week before it hit the news. He said "Son, my job is to get jet fuel bought from big oil companies and get them to a area nearest to effected area we are attacking so our jet and bombers will refuel up or we will be dead in the waters without it" He also told me that the gov. is hiding 2-3 hundreds years of oil in America and had not to used it until the world started to run out. Hopefully, years down the road, 2nd and 3rd world countries nations will start running out of oil and the USA will probably be off most of the oil supplies by then. Now the United States will start to drill and the world has to depend on us for hundred's of years in 2nd and 3rd world countries. The United States thinks ahead and a lot of people think we are dumb but actually, we very smart. It makes sense! We use everyone else's oil and then use our last to keep the power of United States. Like squirrels! Don't you think we are doing the same thing with gold? I do!

I think this one has real meaning; too many newspaper articles are popping up about bank account confiscation. With Greece rolling over and playing dead after their confiscation (less than a year later and the riots have stopped?), the bigwigs appear to be mulling over the possibility of confiscation in other countries in Europe. First they have to soften up the masses to the idea of confiscation, hence the publication of confiscation-themed newspaper stories.

Now the US government is introducing 'we'll invest your money for you' investment schemes for the masses? It is another bad sign.

Then I went shopping for my mother's birthday and everything's price has gone up 10 to 20 percent from last year. But hey, inflation is below 5 percent according to my local government.

I'll be buying more insurance, and doing my best to keep the purchase off of the radar. Can't do too much purchasing, too much of anything just leads to trouble nowadays.

Survival, that is the theme. In the meanwhile I took a trip abroad and lived a little; can't forget to live in these times of trials.

You are right B. It is true that anyone following their call would have made a lot of money...but they did so on the back of the people of this country and at the cost of long term growth. So what? Fuck the people and fuck long term growth. Right. That is the problem. Short term thinking will kill the US. China thinks in terms of decades and centuries. I don't agree with their system or the corruption but at least they think long term. So be right in the short term...good on ya. I wish I had done the same. But I am a short term thinker too....kind of goes with the territory......we are all fucked.

China's leaders can afford to think longterm. They know that their downline will be running the country for decades if not forever.

It is true that all they said has come true.

Its the reason it came true that freaks me out for lack of a better description.

TARP, Stimulas, QE 1-4 all extra constitutional measures (illegal)

Thus, its all a fantasy backed by lies and illegal measures. Worse still is the fact that it can all end on a moments notice, and you won't be notified till after you have been fleeced.

I got out at TARP, yes I have missed the big run up, but have slept in peace, knowing my assets are under my direct control, and cannot be monetized.

"And yet, and yet, and as much as it pains me to say it, if one had followed their "advice," one would have made a lot of money.  Far more money that one would have made being contrarian."

 

Part of the problem with that thinking is that IF We had ALL followed that advice they would have undoubtedly done something different or changed the plan or re-staked the deck.

The other part of the the problem with that thinking is that not everyone had much/any money left after being ripped off in their fucking swindle of the century to go long in 2009 in the first place.

You know that this system in which you gamble is corrupt, right?

And you also realize that their corruption would be absolutely meaningless without your participation, right?

You are directly participating in corruption that will  participate our economic collapse.

I went nail gun shopping today just in case the Committee of Public Safety (Comité de salut public), comes back in fashion. Nothing like combining the old with the new. After all the guillotine was a new invention back then. Found this great Paslode that has fuel cartridges instead of compressed air.

 

http://www.paslode.com/Cordless-Nailers/CF325/

 

Takes up to 3 1/4" framing nails, fires 2-3 nails per second, 48 nail magazine. No registration or background check required. I think you can open carry or conceal carry without issue.

those cartridge nails are all manufactured with serial numbers inscribed.. the cartridge wrapper has the starting serial number recorded in the barcode.. that is captured by the cash register scanner and goes into the computer database.. good luck when the cops come ring your doorbell

Anyone that chooses to buy in to the market now while sitting out since the 2008 bust is just asking to get fucked.  In fact deserves to lose his ass.  Let's see stocks are attractive now because they are at historic highs?  What kind of logic is this?  The little guy is afraid of being left behind?  McFly, the little guy that has not been in HAS been left behind and is better off waiting as there is always going to be a better entry point.  The market has never just gone straight to infinity to date so not sure why that would be the thinking now.  Though it would be nice for the pumpers to get to be the dumpers on to the unsuspecting.   Wash, Rinse, Repeat I believe.  IT must be frustrating to the CNBC and Wash guys that they can get to the Rinse cycle so they can Repeat again.

Problem is that the Central Banks will do everything in their power to avoid a repeat (not because they care about the people, because they want to protect themselves / the bankers, scammers, so that they can get rich on broken people's broken backs, and then send them to the war they are preparing against China, Russia and Iran. If they die, the better, if they come back, they will die anyway from suicide or whatnot, and there will be another batch of idiots to screw)

So the Central Bankers will this time, keep it going for maybe 50 years or even more. The will act Sooner, they will act Faster, they will do More, print More, talk shit more, screw us more etc...do you think that if they see a meltdown of their own assets that they will let it go? no why should they? they already own everything, there isn't anything they need to buy back cheaper, they only need the FED to print them more stuff to keep their liquidity "sloshing at the sidelines".

I am telling you, there is only one remedy for this, all the bankers and their enablers hanging from the lightpoles.

I don't get it, why doesn't the FED print money for all the people in the world, that way no one has to work and we can all buy stuff, as much as we want, go on vacation, travel, have fun, without working a single hour.

I don't get it, why can't the FED do that? That would be so much fun.
