    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Would anyone want to be a stock market bear in Zimbabwe when they started printing?

Given that our overlords won't let the S&P tank, maybe when the bear chart goes to zero you want to start shorting the currency...

But against what? Not other currencies, obviously, as they'll all be doing it.

That leaves hard assets.

You can't hide productive land - the ultimate inflation hedge - from the taxers. That leaves a few things, but the governments' price capping of PMs suggest to me that when the suppression fails, they have the bigest potential upside of any non-counterpartied asset.

very true, but maybe it's possible to hide what is considered productive by altering the perception of it.

That was one of the most succinct, well-reasoned posts I have read recently.

It does make you wonder what "assets" will perform well during the next (inevitable) crisis. I have long feared holding real property, as that is simply too tempting a target for bankrupt governments.

Perhaps it was said best by Charles Dickens' character Wemmick from Great Expectations:

"It don't signify to you with your brilliant look-out, but as to myself, my guiding-star always is, 'Get hold of portable property.'"

So at the height of the financial crisis in 2008/9 the percent of the market who were bears was always less than 50%, I call BS on this data.

Everyone runs for the exit at once.  Yeah, that will work.

The issue of scale is important.  The boyz have been so successful manipulating the market on almost no volume, at or near the close.  What is the Omega Plan?  What happens when they get hit with selling in volume at these nose bleed levels?  Anyone want to stand in front of that freight train and yell stop?

Could be, but I bailed on local real estate when it was going up 25% per year, gotsidank, and the market just did 30.

Speaking of which, I got a six dollar hair cut today (special promo) from a 23 year old goth chick, who would have performed a few other services for six bucks of happy hour drinks at Sharky's .  Hell'sthematterwithdeflation?

Lol.   I used to play a game on craigslist I call "sugarbabes".   It allows amateurs to keep their delusions that I am not offering $500 bucks for a sex date, nice dinner, wine, etc. I am a classy old perv lol.  It helps to look and play the part well. Obviously a creep couldnt pull it off, and one has to be careful. 


That was back when I had tons of money to burn.  I prefer to be a girl's first customer.  

You would not believe the response to some well worded ads.  


18 to 30 and good looking.   I got the long slow foreplay too and bareback, not like a professional girl at all.   The new normal is gonna be awesome for older guys with money to burn. 

Deflation and underemployment rocks.

To add to the awesome perversity of the whole thing one chic was a senior in high school. She said she was 18. I had no reason not to believe her but she did look awfully young.

And they smell gross, too.  Wrinkles and bad smelling, and impotent and skin tags and liver spots and wierd body angles and sagged in chests with empty-skin bellies and oddly skinny legs.  Poor broke girls, they will need brain bleach.  Well, things will be great for Gross Old Dudes for a brief period. But when things genuinely fall apart, these young ladies will be pointing their young, healthy boyfriends in the direction of Gross Old Dudes whose skulls need splitting for their gold.

And us gross old dudes will gladly put a few hot rounds in your face then fuck your bitch.

And from what I've seen you "healthy boyfriends" are all skanky infected heroin addicts who are better off dead anyway.

So I take back fucking your bitch cause she's infected too so another round goes for a good cause.

"The new normal is gonna be awesome for older guys with money to burn."

There was a time when I would have had a similar mindset.

But that changed when I changed my mental paradigm. The answer to "What is the meaning of life?" is an all important one and I've come to the conclusion that the answer is neither "42" nor "He who dies with the most toys wins." Nor even "He who nails the most beautiful babes wins."

But I fully realize I'm in the minority here. Probably by a very long shot.
