    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

Maybe I'm missing something, but isn't this what seems to happen all the time whether it is Timmay or the Beard or Merkozy? The markets are so fucking confused, that we have actually had several up days. I've decided to play along and take some profits by playing follow the sheeple. It's worked way too nicely...

I know how this ends, so I've got plenty of PMs plus the necessities. We won't discuss those in case the government trolls are out looking for new homegrown terrorists...

I'm pleased they've at least got a new headline. For the last few weeks the headlines have been flipping between

Stocks higher on hope of euro fix


Stocks drop on Greece contagion fears

Lazy writers were just recycling the same stories day after day with a few edits.

"The markets are so fucking confused"

They're being so manipulated by Bernanke's little mood-altering computer pixies the "markets" aren't operating as genuine markets at the moment. They're financial Hollywood.

as for Europe,

we have been through Austerity before and we have learned our lesson well.

most Europeans I know have lots of savings stashed away,which is what Europeans do:

Make hay while the sun shines,so you can hold out for the dark and cold winter.

as for the USA, this will be a very long and dark, cold winter of discontent -

so take care...

Sarkozy farts and the markets melt-down.

When they both fart simultaneously the markets become manic-depressive for a few nanoseconds.

And then resume the climb upwards on bad news, good news, no news at all.

This is Bloomberg bullshit, not European bullshit. If Merkels bullshit gets interpreted in 2 distinct ways only one can be true bullshit. just goes to show how anxious the market is to explain the the European governement has ny executive power at all.

OK boys and girls, it's time for ART.

Take a crayon out of your box.  Any color will do and you can use either end of the crayon.

Now, boys and girls:  draw a square circle.  Or a round square.

Many a commenter has accussed the public of being fat, dumb and stupid and those criticisms are warranted; however, I think the current economic malaise has enlightened much of the public to the lies and theft of the political and banking class.  We're in the final stage now.

Final stage? You really think so? I have talked to a lot of people,  and my general feeling is that most of them still firmly believe the lies in the form of popaganda sold by MSM. You really think those OWSers can aim at the root cause of their agony?

What's an OWSer?  People deal with grief differently and it is difficult for people to change ingrained behavior/responses overnight.  Have you asked them how they like this economy?  Asked them how wonderful their lives have changed for the better in the last 3 years?  Asked them if their savings have gone up or down and how they feel about it?  Asked them how they feel about bankers in general?  Maybe you have, but I can tell you I get very direct and very negative responses to all of the above.

You're right and people are fed up with, guess what?, politicians. They hope they will be able to vote some others, such as Ron Paul,  in to "change" their lives for better real soon. At least that's I was led to believe. However,many of them fail to comprehend that  the real problem is the Infinite Growth monetary paradigm,  that requires more and more debt serfs created everyday in this world.  What those in the Occupy protests all over the country are masturbating to is their glorified American Dream, that's sold to them by the MSM/Hollywood/Very Big Money. No change is possible, I am afraid, as long as they can't go after the root cause of their agony.

They say Americans are a billion + pounds over weight cumulatively.  I for one think a crash will do America good.  We can live off our fat stores for a long time and then we will all be good and skinny with less health problems and therefore less health care costs.

I'm not so sure what people believe makes a difference as to what 'stage' in the collapse we are in.  Its the level of the deception that they believe in likely correlates to the level of psychological trauma they will experience when the final stage, monetary system exit stage left, occurs.

Pavlov's dogs' conditioning to salivate at a ring of a bell was erased by the trauma of torrential floods wiping out his laboratories in Moscow.

The only "stage" we entered was Sept '08 when really massive bailouts started.  We've been in that "stage" ever since.  And it's going to continue until the Euro and US dollar are simply worthless.

This isn't a sovereign debt crisis.  It's the biggest citizen looting spree in human history.

If bailouts weren't possible, banks would have told irresponslble governments to sink or swim a long time ago.

But banks know they can tap citizens' wealth anytime they wish, so they keep lending money they know will never be paid back.

It's a huge fucking plan to bleed citizens dry.  Slowly.  Steadily.  Under the cover story of "sovereign debt crisis".

This isn't going to end.  It's going on and on till they bleed everybody dry.

Perhaps you're right.

I chose that handle back when I was really pissed about all the Wall Street looting going on. But since then I've realized, hey, it's just how things are now. They're going to bleed the people dry eventually, no one is gonna stop 'em, accept it, prepare for it individually, everybody else is going down, just the way it is.

So I'm not really cranky anymore, and not really old either, and not really a geezer either come to think of it.

Women say I look like a slim version of Mike Ditka, mustache and all, if that gives you some idea. I don't know, just reporting what they say.

So yea, maybe a handle change is in order.

And it's h-o-r-n-y btw :)
