Bullshish for stocks!

And barrels.  Especially the ATI, Mossberg, AR and Ruger varieties.

Or cheap, reliable ones like the AK, easy enough for even teenaged morons to operate.  Did I really say that?

Did someone mention AKs?


Good folks and good service at J&G.  I exchanged FRNs for two of their AKs and am happy with them.

Just heard Rush comment on this story on the radio, "According to Tyler Durden at Zerohedge.com .....".  Love it.

Yes he is.  It was great, I almost spit the Coke I was drinking out while I was driving.  "According to Tyler Durden at Zerohedge.com....", it was a beautiful thing.  Glenn Beck did it a couple of times on his TV show, too.

Ummm... being mentioned by Rush & Beck is quite the opposite of a good thing. Jesus, Tyler will soon be running NASCAR adds on this site.

And your suggestion about NASCAR is really good.  More clicks than Cramer, I'm sure-->more revenue.

Limbaugh referenced ZH (this article) at 10:15 AM (PST), 8/5; his last obeisance to TD was a couple months back, so we were due. In fact I suggested he do so in a thread here last night; he saw the article/thread, cause>effect. It's a mistake to lump Limbaugh with Beck and other neo-cons. He's actually further toward the right, and on political economy, pretty much in synch with this site. He detests banksters and crony capitalists as thoroughly as he detests the Left.

as addressed yesterday, these guys {the tylers} should be the most well paid, most reverend financial people on this planet, they have literally saved so many of our furtures.  i really hope that they can understand  the impact they have had on us, the appreciation the  daily loyal followers have for them.  so much of  underground brilliance ends when the light of day is finally placed upon it. i truly do not know what i would do without the "hedge".  i am constantly a person who always think of others first in all i do, but this time for my own selfishness, i  pray that they remain underground.  i do not want fair weather sheep fuckin up my "hedge".....i love ya man!...


and for all you grammer assholes who feel the need to point out typos and other imperfections , i would like to say with all due respect to  ...please go fuck yourselves...and i said with all due respect so it makes it ok......

It's interesting that Glenn draws so much anger here.  Sometimes the clown and preacher act gets old, but Glenn is ripping on the FED, banksters and politicians equally.  He is also telling people to "prepare for the worst, and hope for the best".  He has talked about owning gold for years, buying a years worth of food for your family and is a proud gun owner.  So to all the Beck haters out there, fuck off.

no information peddled by Beck is new or exclusive, it can all be found in many many other places, HERE for example - there's no need to have your news chewed up and spit into your mouth, pre-digested by someone with an agenda.

know your source.

Read it: "In what amounts to a massive bluff, the entire fiscal condition of the EU is on the table. If the bluff is called, Germany could be left holding the bail-out bag."




It will not be called. If it will be called, it' wont be honoured. Everybody knows the German would go berserk, if we know something in Europe, is that you don't want the Germans to go berserk.

Any guesses what the Americans are pressuring their allies the Germans to do about the EU debt crisis? Do you have a sense of US-German political relations at the moment?

Or have the Germans finally decided that their US allies have led them into one blunder after another.

I don't see (from my limited vision) a "unified US" pressure on the German and French Govs. What I see is:

- a strong TBTF pressure on the EU to 1) accept a different set-up and 2) to install the TBTF preferred set-up, i.e. an EuroBond

- a medium pressure on Italy on having no opinion on the future of Libya and, more important, to OPEN their capital markets more to other banks. TBTF wants the Italian capital market to resemble more their usual hunting grounds.

- the usual decade-long pressure on Europe to decrease military spending (Ike warned against this)

- the usual misunderstanding in US diplomacy about how much the French and the Germans care for joint policies, how much the Italians and now the Spaniards are into it and the role the Benelux. Sometimes I think this is because US diplomats focus on one country and one language and become "color-blind".

- Meanwhile Russia has become the most important trading partner of Germany, followed by France. Last time it was the 1930's. Soon being friends with Russia will become more natural...

- IMO the Germans's position is still clear and the French, Italians and Spaniards are going to try many, many "unorthodox" approaches so that the German's keep their cool.

Geopolitically, Germans always were and are stupid, fking idiots

  • There were no need for them to get involved in the WWI
  • There was no need for them to declare a war on the USA in 1941
  • Their leaders never purged their country from a 5th column
  • Their stupid arrogance never knew limits

Germans might learn something from Afghan people: regardless who you are but, if you invade their country,  they will send you back home in a body-bag.

Yes indeed but Obama thought that he is a Bonaparte. May be not.

May be Obama thought he is a Duke Wilmington or some other Great Kenya chief.

It is 3-feet tall Sarkozy who thinks he is a Bonaparte.

It's all a confidence game. This latest bailout will never happen, and wasn't supposed to happen.

The announcement was only supposed to calm markets for the weekend. It's harder to control the markets over a weekend.

   When the markets start realizing the bailout won't happen some time next week, we'll see another plunge. But in the meantime they put off the day of reckoning for a little while longer.

The poker game is a good analogy. Didn't the USA fund huge money to bail out the EU banks? My guess is that the player sitting in position #3, that guy with the really large sunglasses and sombrero, is Uncle Sam.

If the majority does not get it, does not understand it, is bored sitting and trying to understand it, is not motivated to understand it, they will get away with kicking the can yet again. I can't tell you how hopping pissed I am, but sadly, I think this is the truth. We will need to come against an obdurate, physical, kickable, limit, before this shit shack comes down.

I am with you, +1000% on this. The only hope left is for the German electorate to say NO to this insane backstopping and guarantees. If they go along then nothing will bring this ponzi down.

There is no hope for the US electorate. Most of what is going on is really beyond their ability to comprehend and resits what is going on.

The great recession will end the same way as the great depression ended.  The can will get kicked down the road until another (world) war starts.  

Unemployment solved, ponzi obliterated in the process with one big world-wide default.  New World Ponzi ground floor level when the war is over......

This time, the WWIII will not do a shit for the USA.

It is a very different world than one in 1940s. Obama is definitely not FDR.

The most important item is that today USA is not the USA of 1940s

·        There are not too many idiots to fight and die for the Kenyan preseidente and his WallStreet oligarchs handlers

·        The US industrial base is not in a position to produce high quality weaponry in high quantities. The Pentagon budget is as wasteful as Medicare

·        Just look at Obama’s successes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Libya, Somalia, etc.,

·        As for our European friends, Afghanistan and Libya are more than can handle

You must be an American.

Nowhere did I say that WW3 would benifit America (or Americans).  Nor did I say or imply that they would win.

The US will start, or join, or will purposely be drawn into ww3.  They will reinstitute the draft to fight unemployment.  They will default on their debt.

After the war, a new ponzi will replace the current one.

Will the US still be a superpower on the other side? Maybe, but who cares?
