In other words gamblers, speculators and vigilantes must be allowed to retain their freedom to destroy corporations and nations which have been rigged by the Giant Squid and other monsters of its likeness?

Exactly what kind of freedom and Libertarianism is that?

Let all "investors" lose when they misplace their bets - and don't allow Giant Squids to rig and sell crap as AAA and then secretly short it.

Better yet - remove the stock market as false symbol of "the economy" and national wealth - when all it is, is a casino for lazy fucks who want to get rich without creating or producing anything, and, of course more importantly and primarily the prime tool for the elite to enslave the people.

And the dead give away of the week.

Matt Drudge posting a 6.66% loads in S&p on Monday.

I have 2 things to say . The odds of the market closing on that extant number are null. It was done on purpose.

And the media could of lied and .6.69 or 6.65 but they choice to implant a doomfull idea in your head .

Dow will be 800 on Friday. Goodnight

Not in the E-commUne. Seems they prefer lack of any market action to legitmate price movements. We should shut the whole scoreboard off just like third grade basketball. Everyone's a winner! Scariest thing is, the US proves more left leaning than the FIBS, they are following our lead.

No, of course not. It's probably just in time for the reaction rally. A medicine for the illness that already curing itself; but perhaps not. Certainly the Europeans are nervous in the service.

Last audio: "Someone call an ambulance, a doctor and the police." He's past all three before he hits the floor, that was a river running out of his nose. Guess he preferred a lead breath mint to a shit sammich.


EDIT: was that real or was it a training video for Bernakenstein?

No, during the weekend Merkel and Sarkozy will agree to some new rescue shit and the CME will increase gold margins once again (at friday night maybe). Stocks will rally and gold will drop, everything will be fine  HAHAHA

No I disagree . Since Obama was the bigger chosen for pawing the most bs on one term , I suspect Tim Geithner will announce the AMERO is heal to save the day. Will just need 1.5 trillion to fund it .
