Just about a month ago weren't all the banks holding hands and singing Kumbaya? I smell a coordinated dump.

Can we get a courtesy flush please?

The Bernank will forget to sterilize the AIDS-Ebola-FleshEatingBacterium contaminated needle and/or give a fatal dose of Heroin to the Wall Street Junkies who now are completely jonesing for a fix.

Their skin is crawling and they have imaginary snakes, spiders and roaches crawling all over their bodies.

Hurry Bernank! Administer the fatal dose!

Do it, Bernank, do it!

Wikileaks confirms destruction of BofA bombshell evidence:


Seems like BofA handed out phat bonuses to the script kiddies.

Is that why Assange is off the hook?

okay let's assume that this time around no one get fundings as in 2008...

1) Run on banks...I personally think that if that happens...they will close the banks after 48 hours

2) People get killed on the Treasuries as the money will be for sure blocked for "other" purposes...which are numerous

3) The world's finance as we know it will cease to exist

4) They will revalue the US dollar and Europe will follow (they are both the biggest holders of Gold) by attaching to the US dollar

5) They will make US dollar convertible into Gold at a rate far higher than today as such that all the liabilities are covered by Gold assets

6) China will be left with nothing and their hopes to become a financial super power are wiped out in a single day as all their assets will be down 50%

So if money gets nothing and Bretton Woods II is to come back where to put the money apart from Gold?

When I thought my mind could no longer be shocked, I discover an entire market of Chinese made plastic appendages designed so fatties can wipe. That's about the only growth sector in the US economy at the moment, pissed off I missed it.


Times were when that was a royally appointed position, or you paid good money to a nurse - democracy in action, one supposes.

You may be shocked but I'm actually becoming quite annoyed with Dr. Bernanke. Bernanke has become frustratingly hawkish over the course of this year and my equity portfolio is now heavily underwater due to his lack of decisiveness. I sincerely believe it is time for Obama to pick a new Fed chairman who has the courage to provide the monetary stimulus that this economy is BEGGING for.

Not sure if you're joking. But you actually make sense. Dr. Ben hasn't done what is required.

Ask yourself why. Answer, he's not there to serve YOU. His friends have made it rich and now you're going to loose.

Are you sure he is not one of the Bernank's pals? Maybe he is still waiting for his payout (ala Madoff).

Perhaps. But what just comes to mind is that Obama could put the blame squarely on Bernanke if the economy goes into the toilet and ride his 2012 campaign to go "all in" with Americans on the back of failed Fed policies.

MillionDollarBonuses may be a troll, but there's an angle to the rhetoric.

Obviously most here know that QE's intention was a "Friends of Ben" program.

Dr. Bernanke is the student of the Great Depression.  He doesn't have to answer to nobody.  He knows what he is doing.

Exactly.  He is a student of the Great Depression.  Not a teacher... And we all know the kinds of mistakes students can make...  It is rather obvious that Mr. B didnt learn enough about what actually occurred during the GD...

Yep, also makes him perfectly qualified to handle the toxic market that was created well AFTER the Great Depression. Just like hiring a specialist that works on antique Fords to fix your 2011 Lexus.

Uncle Ben tried to restart the economy, but Uncle Alan blew the engine.  Since then, Ben has been very successful in keeping the markets afloat, kicking the can, and getting gold into the vaults of central banks. 

Not a bad job from thier point of view, but TPTB are not out of the woods yet.

You're on to something here.   How can He be considered a failure?  Has He not done everything the Banks have wanted Him to do?   How can He be out of bullets when He has the golden printing press?   Bullets come in all forms and He has the ultimate weapon.   Praise be unto His Highest.

The question is not whether American industry is begging for it, but rather if it deserves it.

The only purpose QE3 will serve is akin to keeping Terry Schiavo on life support, you can keep industry alive, but keeping it alive through artificial life support, rather than industry innovating to keep competitive and sustainable worth it?

There, for all intents and purposes been 2 bail outs, yet most industries are suffering. Is it the fault of the politicians? Sure partly, but does some of the responsibility lie with the businesses that have made bad decisions? Even more so.

3 strikes and business is out man, time to let them sink like they deserve.

Well, you know, The Bernank has more important banking matters on his plate right now.


That would be The European Banks, of course.

Once he's finished doling out a few Trillion to the PIIG banking cartel

THEN he will get around to taking care of the American banking cartel.

Or, are they all one and the same, perhaps?

OpenLeaks founder destroys cables WikiLeaks Bank Of America

Daniel Domscheit-Berg, founder of OpenLeaks who defected from WikiLeaks last year, has announced (later confirmed by Assange ) the destruction of the cache of 3,500 documents that had not seen the light of WikiLeaks. Thousands of documents that were entered 5GB of Bank of America had taken with him when he left the organization with a server. The reason, it has the same Domscheit, maintain safety of informants.

The data will never see the light refers to a series of cables obtained by WikiLeaks between January 2010 and August of that year. Daniel himself has been Domscheit-Berg who leaked documents the destruction of the German newspaper Spiegel .

Apparently, Berg Domscheit WikiLeaks left with a server of the organization that contained a large number of yet unpublished material.

I used to think the dollar was going to go to zero, but I also came to the realization that if all the central banks and governments are coordinating kicking the can and suppressing gold prices while they buy cheap gold, they will coordinate the crash too. 

There's no way the banks of the world are going to let us pay off our mortgages with funny money.  They will pull the plug and move us to a gold related standard before they take that haircut.  If they are successfull in amassing enough gold first, they will be not only solvent but incredibly wealthy.

Well, I'm holding on to my 1000 share block bought at $7.37; I'saying $6.50 is a double bottom; at $6.35, I'm sayin "good bye"  A mere flesh wound. Although I wish people at the bank would keep their damn mouth shut; we don't need to hear no stuff about financial problems anounced by a Bank. Don't they have any sense, or what?
