A few weeks back, a buddy of mine (who I thought was intelligent) told me that Obama "cares about me and the little people."

The shit people believe.

The FED isn't just scared, it's PETRIFIED that ANY move down in the stock indices will mean confidence evaporates. That's why at some point it's inevitable, the market will fall despite the FED trying to stop it.

How fucked up is it that when you see a "list" in the title you think it's Michael Snyder and summarily dismiss the post?

ZH is our roadsign that doesn't just say 'Danger Ahead', but explains why. The exuberant can go on in their giddy bliss, I'm totally fine with that where I stand.

Off topic but could count as a warning sign of exuberance.


"It’s people! Soylent green is made out of people", to quote from the classic 1973 science fiction film and Charlton Heston’s memorable line. (1970s era spoiler alert!): In Soylent Green, due to global collapse, a desperate and dying humanity is unknowingly being fed human remains as a food source. But due to biological and scientific advances we can apparently eat humans now, willingly, and with a side of mustard. Why wait for catastrophe?

Once more life imitates art, and a startup called BiteLabs is looking for support to create meat products from celebrity body parts, aiming to take cells from willing celebs and using them to grow protein into test-tube meat.

LATimes.com spoke with a representative of the organization: "At the moment, our primary goal is to provoke discussion and debate around topics of bioethics and celebrity culture."


I guess they forget about the possibility of kuru disease for starters.

Because of the "cry wolf" syndrome, we have an amazing juxtaposition of events: the chinese meltdown, the japanese suicidal last gasp, and Crimea, along with a market that is finally starting to roll over. Good enough reasons for PMs to be rising.

I love how the Cramer soundboard is hosted by CNBC.

The stock market is for the remaining 15-20% with anything left over to speculate (gamble) with. The rest Big Nurse is going to put to sleep.  Teevee and AM radio are packed with ads for drugs, home nursing, Big Sickcare, in all its sepia-tinted babyshit formats.  Amerika is done, stick a fork in it.

As the Federal Reserve extracts liquidity from the markets


Bullshit.  A mild reduction in QE hardly indicates "extraction" is taking place.

There is one thing different about the current situation that has not occurred intentionally in the past:  the quantitative easing program of the Fed.  This, together with super low interest rates have left the average investor with no place to go but the stock market.  Institutional investors are not much different even though, theoretically, they may have other options.  Thus there is a lot of - no place else to go money in the stock market that will not be withdrawn quickly.  The more correct metaphor is a road that deteriorates from asphalt to gravel to mud over several miles.
