That protest may lack some energy.

EDIT: Prosperity, bitchez!

You'll need wheat to mill, to make the flour, that forms the donuts. Cops can't run if they have no fuel.

This is what collapse looks like; however, until the Cayman Island accounts holding 27 trillion are wiped out, no one on Main Street gives a crap.

Even better than the corn wheat long was a vol weighted long Aussie short you can take the rest of the year off...

keep spraying the skies and we will continue the drought/flood weather volatility.  Now inflation is not the only way to secretly steal wealth, by creating volatility in weather, we can commoditize it and create a whole new demand and market place.
