Cashin is clearly on the reservation. He just as well could have inserted "my pal, Steve Liesman/Barry O'Bama/Jeff Immelt," et al. Cut from the same counterfeit, pseudopopulist bolt as Buffett. A facade and a tool for any network who'll have him. Red face and all.

Not to get too nasty here on this beautiful morning but why do you comment? 


It’s worse. Every day. But off the press. It’s too de-pressing.

No dude it's better every day.  Figure it out.

don't ask, don't tell, vic!  L0L!!!

be careful or falak penis will get after you! 

ori-0 is just another adbot troll, that's all.  people write to him for "advice & friendship" and give him their e-mails or get his spyware and his owners pay him to be non-anonymous, like falak penis, spirit of lies,  o-0-brien, and others to troll here, and impress everyone w/ his "websites" "books" "prophecies" or just abject stupidity, usually

his problem is that he is a wooden-headed puppet and still not Real after a lifetime as pinocchio.  he is one of the more insecure psychotics on the planet, too

thank you for paying attention

just junk and ignore, with a periodic rant?  after wondering abt this particular asswipe for quite sometime, i finally perceived him as cruella deville~~just collecting skin futures

he was in the USAF and apparently is quite "successful" at deceit, as one would expect of a "yogi" whose main game was to troll on zH and pretend to understand everything with no self-knowledge whatsoever, while shamelessly self-promoting and 'ad-botting' away to the tune of thousands of free ads here and parisitically draining tyler of his ability to try to help people see things a bit more realistically

he and the other trolls have a no respect for the reason for zHs' anonymity or the psychologically dynamic ideas behind zH

FYI:  these are those zeroHedge ideas & ideals as per years ago, here, now perhaps largely forgotten by those who just want to make cutesie comments all fuking day long, every fuking day:

our mission:

  • to widen the scope of financial, economic and political information available to the professional investing public.
  • to skeptically examine and, where necessary, attack the flaccid institution that financial journalism has become.
  • to liberate oppressed knowledge.
  • to provide analysis uninhibited by political constraint.
  • to facilitate information's unending quest for freedom.

our method: pseudonymous speech...

anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. it thus exemplifies the purpose behind the bill of rights, and of the first amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation-- and their ideas from suppression-- at the hand of an intolerant society.

   ...responsibly used.

the right to remain anonymous may be abused when it shields fraudulent conduct. but political speech by its nature will sometimes have unpalatable consequences, and, in general, our society accords greater weight to the value of free speech than to the dangers of its misuse.

- mcintyre v. ohio elections commission 514 u.s. 334 (1995) justice stevens writing for the majority

though often maligned (typically by those frustrated by an inability to engage in ad hominem attacks) anonymous speech has a long and storied history in the united states. used by the likes of mark twain (aka samuel langhorne clemens) to criticize common ignorance, and perhaps most famously by alexander hamilton, james madison and john jay (aka publius) to write the federalist papers, we think ourselves in good company in using one or another nom de plume. particularly in light of an emerging trend against vocalizing public dissent in the united states, we believe in the critical importance of anonymity and its role in dissident speech. like the economist magazine, we also believe that keeping authorship anonymous moves the focus of discussion to the content of speech and away from the speaker- as it should be. we believe not only that you should be comfortable with anonymous speech in such an environment, but that you should be suspicious of any speech that isn't.

thanks again for paying attention, Vic, even tho the 1-line toy-boys and -girls have teed off on ya pretty good from time-to-time w. their ad hominems...

this bears repeating:  we believe not only that you should be comfortable with anonymous speech in such an environment, but that you should be suspicious of any speech that isn't.

unfortunately, many zeroHeads see personal "fame" as "just the ticket" and keep feeding these asswipe adbot  trolls due to their own lack of understanding of what is at stake, here, politically...

...and if ignorance were an excuse, this would be forgive-able, but it isn't, so just let the fuktards reveal their ignorance and gullibility and "repsect" for their toy-boy touch-hole budiies and "friends" for another day, and stay aware of the true dynamics we are fighting for & against, here, ok?

Central bank policies work best when no one knows what they are doing.  It is like any other ponzi scheme.  It requires secrets and lies.

In the information age, only truth and reality will work.  Any deviation or lie is detected and globally known instantly.  The policy is DOA.

Start with the smallest prime number that produces an integer on division.

3895 / 5 = 779

779 / 19 = 41  (all other prime numbers between 5 & 19 produce non integers)

Ans : 19 x 5 = 95 late patrons spent $41 each.

So did you just start dividing until you came upon an even dollar answer, or was there a formula (educated guess) that got you there before burning up your Texas Instrument?

Just wondering because I was too lazy.

Wed, 09/28/2011 - 18:03 | 1719971 slewie the pi-rat
slewie the pi-rat's picture

no, but almost; i went to factors & educated guess

i knew it was divisible by five, so this hast to be divided with no remainder (even dollar answer as you say) and, i think, prob ends in 5

so we have 55 ,65, 75, 85, & 95 as our five choices and the answer luckily turned out to be in there, somethere, too!  i started at the wrong end, of course, but cashin is a sly one!

Where's all the fuc'ing pounding on the sell-side fuc-necks they parade in day in and day out?  You know, the asshat-tiepin-greasehairs that were calling for Dow 600,000 and S&P 10,000 months ago.

No mention of their "Bad calls"...jack-off's!

Enjoyable post Tyler. Always respect Art. Fisher looking to retire soon. And remember all, the idiot channel is there for sponsors, revenue and ratings. Has absolutely nothing to do with the truth, facts or what is right.

But most here already know that.

Bar problem.  it had to be a number ending in zero or five to evenly divide $3,895.  I tried a few, found 3895 divided by 95 = 41.

95 customers each paid $41.
