He was completely right back then. He is even more right now. And yes, when Wall Street Pro takes to the streets, only then will it be on.

See below - Greenspan saw walstreetpro and was terrified enough that he accelerated his b.s. flow hoping that twice as much b.s. will make him twice as safe.

 

Remember - everything hinges on Europe and their debt.  That is the source of our crash.   Not Greenspan, rigging gold, the bullion banks, blowing debt bubbles, and the fiat money / central banking system.

obama's half black, not a muslim (imo) and not a communist.  to call obama a communist requires such a divorce from reality that psychosis becomes a real possibility.  unless of course what you mean is an authoritarian, like lenin, stalin, mao... but also like hitler (sorry godwin), pinochet, franco ....  

obama is a hideously corrupt lackey for the "crony socialism" of the very rich.  and a war criminal and ... but that's another story.

i saw it summed up well: when obama is called a monster, john wayne gacy is insulted.

Obuma's mother and father were both communists.  The old saying "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" makes thinking he's not communist a real challenge. Take a look at his associations and people he hired with taxpayer money.  Van Jones, his Green Jobs Zsar, had to resign because of his communist connections.

Wayne Madsen reports

 

Wayne's report is a pay for view service and the following is a small excerpt from it.  Wayne writes that not only is Obama gay but it names favorite clubs and a gay dating service run by Rev. Wright that Obama and another young man in the congregation used.  The other young man was later murdered.  According to WMR, Rahm (the boy ballet dancer) Emmanuel is also member of the gay club.
  
Begin Excerpt
 
 
"May 24, 2010 -- SPECIAL REPORT. Obama and Emanuel: members of same gay bath house club in Chicago
 
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago's gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
 
The bath house, Man's Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago's "grand old bathhouses." WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides lifetime memberships to paying customers and that the club's computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. However, sources close to "Man's Country" believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
 
Members of Man's Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry."

Wiki;

Harlequin, an often gay, cocksucking troll on the internet. Never well liked and has severe mental issues. Even their parents were repulsed by the sight of the harlequin child.  The famous beranke PHD proctologist has delivered many of these children into the wild field of banking and politics. The harlequins' quest for cock is still a mystery to the medical community. The CDC warns that all should avoid the harlequin and their desire for continued cockfest activities.

Payback?

I have news for you. As horrible a situation we are in, the U.S. is in far better shape than the other major countries and regions of the world. Europe's banking system is levered up even more than ours, with fewer resources to handle their problems. The Euro and the European Union is about to be swallowed into a black hole thanls to the fascist/socialist systems put in place for the last century. China's real estate bubble makes ours look like a soap bubble. That country may devolve into civil war, or outright invasion of another country once their proverbial pile of crap hits the fan. And Japan has been in their collapsed economy for over 20 years. Meanwhile, we'll merely lose our reserve currency status.

If this is pay back, heaven help us if Righteous Vengeance and Furious Anger show up. Because we're last in line, and you are near the front.

In the end China can still buy oil with products, they have all the factories after all. The EU and Japan have a far lower trade deficit to GDP ratio than the US (although Japan is going to be in the shit while consumption moves away from the US to other countries, since they are not food independent). What does the US have? Saudi Arabia giving them oil for free because they fear Iran and reserve currency status.

Of all the major economies the US is least able to pay for it's standard of living in actual trade ... losing reserve currency status is going to be murder for the US.

Ok Silver Bully, to clarify, when I say payback I don't mean that you (America) deserve it. I mean that this is the inevitable consequence of doing nothing whilst everyone pegs to your currency because in the short term it is beneficial to you. And there is no denying that due to this credit and the 'strong dollar policy' that again, no one seemed to complain about there were more cars on the roads in the US than there were eligible drivers to drive them. I'm not aware that these clowns were complaining  back then, and you can bet your sweet ass they would be the first to complain if that same credit were removed by any government for their own long term benefit. Fact is that that no one seemed to complain too much about it because they were too busy bragging about how much their house value had gone up.

Fact is that 'Any numb cunt can criticise...' and I believe that's absolutely correct in this case, but then how many have done anything about it? What's this guy done?

Buy gold, buy silver? I hope you get to keep it, but my gut feeling is that when the tax bill finally arrives for the only asset class still standing these same clowns will wonder why they bothered. And if I hear of just one more tosspot with a financial plan that involves giving up his life in a gun fight over gold and silver I swear I'll fucking puke!

'Righteous Vengeance and Furious Anger' Hell I deal with that shit everyday, but I still don't see any difference as to why a bankrupt California should be able to underpin a federal debt issue anymore than I see why Italy should contribute to an EFSF so that it can buy Italian bonds.

You will fare no better than anyone else, and far worse than many...

  1. Silver Lyrics – to the Tune of “Silver Bells”

    Silver Bells

    City sidewalks, busy sidewalks .
    Occupy Wa-all street-style
    In the dollar no feeling, of Dodd-Frank
    Banksters detest
    People’s protest
    Dollars falling in style
    And with gold sixteen-fifty you’ll hear

    Silver bells… silver bells
    It’s Precious Metals time in the city
    Ring a ling hear them sing
    Soon it will be Christmas day

    JP Morgan
    Keeping Silver
    Even keel with it’s stock,
    It’s a wonder they
    still have their heads on
    Hear the snow crunch
    Don’t relax much
    Blood flows in the streets
    And you really think silver
    stays ’round 35?

    Silver bells, silver bells
    It’s Silver Time, in the Metals
    Ring-a-ling, hear it sing
    Soon it will be Silver Day

    Soon it will be Silver Day

Bingo!  I was on another site and they were talking about made in China hand tools and also metal drilling rigs etc.  Shit just shattering.  The Chinese "thinned out" rebar on building to save money.  Shitty steel mixes too at lower then spec temps.  Bad stuff.

How do you know its Chinese?

I bought a sledgehammer once and guess what, it didn't come with instructions. That's ok, it seemed pretty obvious, hit the fucking thing hard with the end, not the shaft...

Keep smokin' the shit dude; I'm sure that probably came from China too...

But it was funny as fuck though, kind of like," where's me 'ammer gone"...

I was using a junk screwdriver and a piece broke off the end while, what else, screwing in a screw, and flew off and hit me dead on in the cornea and left a hole. Boss later told me I should have been wearing safety glasses and I asked him whether he always wore safety glasses when using a screwdriver, even at home, which he ignored. I then said I'd wear glasses if he'd "...quit buying cheap fucking Chinese tools from Harbor Freight..." and walked out of his office.  Used my own tools from that point on...

"quit buying cheap fucking Chinese tools from Harbor Freight"

Same same.

Last out of town trip I went on we were in the wifes car. We're getting ready to drive home (wifes sisters house single mom) and notice one of the tires is almost flat...spit on the finger reveals its the valve stem. So I say to my nephew, do you have an air pump of some sort? He says yeah but its broke.

The cheap rubber had racked & broke off where it enters the pump cylinder. So I fix the pump, pump up the tire enough to get to a "gas station" where I have to buy air...lol...and head to the auto parts store.

The valve tool is in a package so you can't feel/touch it...but it looks like pot metal...its all they have.

I drop about 20 bucks there on two types of valve cores (not knowing which...long or short) a tire pressure gauge and the valve core tool. I emerge from the store feeling as cocky as Tim Allen with my appreciative family watching on I try and tighten the valve core...not wanting to drop the tire pressure in the parking lot by replacing it there without an air source.

The fucking thing (the tool) reams off, piece of shit. Brand new...broke.

"How's it goin honey?' says Mrs.N...just fine babe, I got it. I didn't tell them...just fumed to myself all the way home watching the tire sensor on the dashboard.

There's a steel one in the glove box now...replaced the core when I got home.

Whenever possible...buy quality.

Yup,  I buy $150.00 made in the USA work boots.  Wear those things everyday and they last forever, going on 5 years now!  Try that with the shit that come from Cheena, and they still charge 100 FNRs for those!  I will gladly pay more for quality goods made in the USA.  Sadly, it is harder and harder to find.  Sucks!

When this guy gets pissed enough....?

The game is over.

He isn't asking for anything but Liberty. Failure to provide that is a 'specialty' of government. When guys like him, Firefighters, small business owners, bloggers, ex military, decide that enough is enough.Then OWS gets right.

The crowd now is mostly people who are pissed off but don't have a true clue as to why.

Blaming wallstreet makes such a mockery (in typical leftist fashion) of this so called 'spontaneous' 'movement'. It is akin to blaming the crack dealer for the fact that your parents do crack.

Or with even greater precision, the crack dealer convincing you that were it not for your parents addiction, he would refuse to sell crack to them.

They NEED it you see and so he (government) is merely a provider and not to be held to account.

So what is suggested is that you punish your parents and allow for the dealer to go free.

The power of government allows this abuse. The power of government exist solely based upon its ability to thrive on this abuse.

Government is the head. OWS attacks the toe.

Its like gangsta politics. All is family until the sociopath leader feels threatened. Then it is time to show the fear card. 

OWS is a fear card play.

Might work, might not.

It is up to us.

dubious.  the national security state (cia, etc.) has a considerable life of its own and the wherewithal to protect and further it.  but the rest of government we have come to know?  the fed, the treasury, the president (especially this one), the congress, the other regulators?  lackeys to the rich, pathetically thankful for the crumbs they get.  the rich love the use of the monopoly on force that the government has, but it is a tool, one of many the rich employ.

The Illuminati ruling families are the head.  They are the correct target for the pitchforks.   They and their lackeys have infiltrated our government.  The ruling families and their slaves have infiltrated our financial system, media, churches, almost every medium of control.  The only thing they don't have total control over is the internet.

Even if you replace our current government, they'll just reinfect the new one, and then you have the same old baloney all over again.

Occupy Wall Street is a good start, but it is just slashing at a tentacle.  They just need to be aimed directly at the Oligarchs.  The Oligarchs need to be clearly identified and understood.  That hasn't happened yet, but needs to.

Stop workng for the Oligarchs, you are their slave and may not even know it.  Sure they fill your head with things like "you are a god", but try disobeying the people above you and see how much of a god you are.

The Oligarchy is EVIL.  Look at the horrible abuse they do to the lower ranking members of their group, the unspeakable  "religious" rites they perform. The misery they have already caused the world.   Do you think that is going to change after everything gets pulled down?  It's only going to get worse, no matter what lies they are feeding their slaves.

There is always time for redemption. End the EVIL,  it's time good had a chance to run things.

China has been manufacturing computers and monitors since at least the early 90's. The fact that sooo many people are unemployed/under-employed is waking a lot of people up to the sad state of affairs here in the US.

Think about this for a minute.  If you were to have a product manufactured and your goal is to make money (for yourself and your investors) where would you have it manufactured? Here in the states with all the unions and their expensive salaries and benefits along with regulations dictated by the Gov't or in China?

I wonder how many people realize that the death panel operates with limited-to-no oversight?

As the sadistic & blood thirsty psychopaths search for new "terrorists" in which to eradicate, who's gonna end up on the list?

Guys like Bundy weren't in it just for the kill - that was merely the final end-point & culmination of an endorphin producing hunt.

After the high wears off, it's time to begin searching for new, additional victims.

Who do you think they're going to choose? Who's making it easy in which to create a dossier of "threats" to enable their little hunting/murder projects to be green lighted?
