Yeah no kidding huh? I'm short the S&P and I'm going to have an aneurysm watching it. I WOULD think that since the markets are going along swimmingly that the Fed couldn't possibly enact some kind of easing, but as you said...

Agreed...and again, this speech as a catalyst for equities [rising as credit burns] clearly indicates the bankrupt nature of Wall Street.  Scraping the bottom of the barrel for catalysts, aren't we?

Good grief.

Obama has no intention at all of the 300B proposal being approved.

If it was approved, the debt ceiling would not last til election day.

I agree. It's nothing but a ridiculous political maneuver so he can tell us over and over again how he would have created or saved 2 million jobs had the mean-spirited Republicans only passed his innovative jobs bill. Oh, and the words "cops, firefighters, and teachers" will be said over and over and over.

BAC to close 600 branches and USPS firing 200 000 people might help the numbers to get to -600k next month.

revise prior week's higher - check (from 409K to 412K).

Yeah total coincidence that it has happened in EVERY SINGLE WEEK since AT LEAST 2007 uh? Always revised up, never down...

Bring back the Postal Savings System. Convenient for military members and the banks don't want the small accounts anyway.

Oh, sure.   And have the USPS treat those savings like the gov't treats the Social Security "lock box".  No thanks.

If we think the Fed has the best game in town by being able to print money at will, you ain't seen nothin' like the USPS.  They can print  postage with any denomination on it -- for the same cost of production for all the "accountable paper" that they produce.

I think we can blame this month's numbers on the HUGE and totally unexpected layoffs of non-unionized ice cream truck drivers this month.  It's gotta be something.

the real story buried in the Manson article:

Also Wednesday, the Assembly overwhelmingly approved a Padilla bill that would grant expedited legal review to Anschutz Entertainment Group's proposal for a 72,000-seat football stadium in downtown L.A.

"The goal of the bill is simply to get people back to work sooner rather than later," Steinberg said

translation : we need to get those union & contractors' donations into our election coffers stat!

also buried in the article:

The Assembly also approved measures that would allow San Francisco to raise its vehicle license fees and would implement a pilot project in four counties allowing hemp to be grown for industrial purposes.

Hah, yes - I was waiting for that...."With all the hurricanes, tropical depressions, earthquakes along Bush's fault...".    Once upon a time, a disaster swath such as hurricane Irene would result in an increase in work - repairs, lots o' work to do, rebuild housing, etc.  NOt so much anymore, I guess.

No problem, markets reply to obvious economic collapse by rising a few % today, baking in more 'QE3 euphoria' which will consist of hand-holding some bond rate curves. What does 1 have to do with the other? Absolutely nothing, welcome to the New World Order.

He'll propose extending the jobless benefits beyond the current 99 weeks.  Afterall it's those jobless benefits that stimulate the economy, and buy votes.

Pretty grim when the only real economic activity is people spending their govt handout checks.
