  • Mainstream Media Misses the Boat (Again) on Manufacturing Report [View article]
    Psycho ben will not stop printing and the corrupt politicians will not stop spending both enable each other. prodog on right path.
    High inflation 10-20% and dollar destruction on the way. Inflating the debt way is the fed's plan. Protect your wealth as commodity prices and necessity prices go sky high.
    weimar stock market did not keep up with hyperinflation and there was sharp violent corrections along the way.

    What private recovery?
    Massive stimulus deficits and Govt sponsored ponzi loans carrying the day for big ticket purchases like FHA home loans and Low down payment auto loans.

  • The Fed buys $7.72B in Treasurys maturing 2013-2014, of $37.238B offered by dealers, in a permanent open market operation. Monetization watch: Nearly $3.7B of that went to a single CUSIP issued just a few weeks ago. Bonds stay lower: 10-year Tsy yield +0.03 to 3.345%.  [View news story]
    Hey Bro. Take the blinders off. You see what you want to see. The Reichsmark (Weimar german currency 1920's) had multiple 30% rallies on its way to becoming worthless.
    I highly suggest you apply at the NAR for a economist position. You would make a good pumper.

    Bernanke and the Fed stooges got what they wanted. We now have a speculative blowoff US stock market. How far this hotair ballon fills is anyone's guess, but Ben the psycho printing Prof will make sure it inflates real big. Watching some small cap spec holding soaring daily in some cases 5-10%.
    It is time to restrain yourselves and not go all in but withdraw ever so slowly.

    Economic policies based on asset inflation and bubbles cause much more harm than good. This non-sense will not stop until there are checks and balances placed on these stooges at the Fed and on our politicians to spend so freely.
    I definately see Egypt style rallies coming to cities in the not to distant future.

  • Home Price Declines Accelerate [View article]
    zhey John track the houses in town and nearby towns throughout the foreclosure process. One house in particular. House bought End 2004 with primary and piggyback mtg. $475k total. Paid $540k for house. 3 years later refi'd and consolidated one loan $607K.

    House went lis pendens Jan 2009. Jan 2011 still sitting in house. Not even a sheriff sales date set yet! In last six months bought two new vehicles, a Hummer and a New pickup. One of the most extensive Christmas lights and upscale landscaping all maintained by landscaper. BUT these homedebtors buy high ticket items can have a landscaper maintain their property while not making a mtg payment?
    This is the S$#! that is going on. In the lower income towns houses are being foreclosed on left and right. Some careful examination would probably say their are two standards here.

    Yeah bro has a sock in his mouth. In my area NOTHING and I mean nothing is being foreclosed on. Many preforeclosures have still not reached or have a date for sheriff sales in over 2 YEARS!

    One house has repeatedly been dealyed and delayed and delayed from a court date. Sept '10 and still open for a date March '11.Citimortgages is the servicer.

    There are NO freaken free markets to clear these toxic excessive over priced asset markets.

    bro you absolutely right it is a sideshow. the real MONEY pumping is coming from 1-3% downpayment FHA mtgs being handed out like candy backed by taxpayers and the GMAC/Americredit/US taxpayer Backed low to 0 down AUTO loans.

    If not for the PONZI financing there would be alot less demand for big ticket items. There goes your utopia Bro

  • Where Is Inflation Headed? [View article]
    what if interest expense on the massive Fed debt explodes upward due to interest rates resetting to normal levels?
    I figure if interest rates get back to normal 5.50% avg rate not the 3% currently the interest expense balloons to over $900 bil a year at current debt levels.
