It's the buy the dip Bernake Miracle. Don't judge the economy by what the Dow does anymore. It's the last bastion of confidence and heir Ben won't let it blow.

The real question is what effect — if any — future developments have on the global geostrategic picture, on global trade, and global energy infrastructure. America-as-Japan-2.0 is far more likely to threaten geostrategic disruption than Japan-as-Japan.

I can't agree with "get over this".

With this total disrespect for law, order and justice, the cabal is taking down as slow as they can hope from the designed fail or a failed design.

A financial collapse will create chaos.

I have been in this trading and blogging shit for over 5 years. THe slow depression can continue, but forcing the issue will escalate into madness. Fuck it is madness already.

Fuck it, at this pace I can squeak out a couple more good years, then call it a day.

As more and more people realize the inevitable storm that is about to fall upon us,..the negative energy is palatable.  when you are out and about,… don't you find yourself thinking that this just can't go on much longer, and you find yourself attempting to absorb the simple little things that you once took for granted because soon, sooner than many others realize,……it will never be the same in our life time again.

Please,… less vulgaries make for more enjoyable reading even as our way of life begins to crumble!

Gotta love this CYA comment in the summation... "Authorities around the globe will certainly do all they can to keep things stable..."

Authorities around the world are busy as cats kicking sand in pursuit of saving TBTF banksters...  fixed that.

Brent's not calm.  The spread is now headed towards $27.

That's right.  $27.  It was about 0 in January of this year.  

And it was about 0 for all months of history prior to January.

But still they think that finance matters for an engine that is having its fuel flow choked off.

My first wife and i divorced over religious differences....she was an atheist, i was an agnostic.  Woody Allen.

I guess the vast differences between atheism ('there is no god') and agnosticism ('there is god, only not the one from the Books') escape you?  Woody Allen is a zionist puke who married his own (adopted) daughter, a mental masturbator who excels at rationalizing and valorizing vacuous, decadent lifestyles.  Bleh.


In any case, getting back to the topic at hand: rather than just bear witness to the slow progression of our economic and social destruction, why not fight back?

=> if we don't fight back, the NWO's stated goal of 92% world population reduction and 'agenda 21' for 'sustainable development' will become a reality.

No sense of humor, eh?  By the way, your definition of agnostism is wrong.

Cranky-Geezer are you exceptional or is it common for atheists to fantasize about torturing rivals? If so, perhaps the folks running Abu-Graib were self actualized atheists?

I do not have a history of "doing more than fantasizing about torture". There are 1.5 billion living Christians that will make similar claims. Our group is the biggest in the world with the longest and most colorful history. Cherrypicking the ugliest available datapoints from a group that is a huge percent of the population makes you as dishonest as a bankster.

"living Christians" don't necessarily believe they are more honest than others, imo.  only, perhaps, that they can be more "honest" than others in facing their own "dishonesty" b/c of the norm they are up against in the guy who walked outa the freaking boat they were all in

if you can't walk outa the boat, stf up, you self-righteous hypocrite!

If you had bought beans, bullets and bullion over the past ten years, you have done pretty good with your "investment".  Food is still relatively cheap, now is the time to stock up.  By the time your local Walmart is burning, it's too late to prepare (then all you can do is pray, or not).  Hedge your future by preping now.  As Barry said last week, "prepare for the worst, and hope for the best" (no teleprompter needed for that line).
