  • Not in my neck of the woods!
    To paraphrase George Taylor from the original Planet of The Apes,
    and I quote,

  • Bernanke Semiannual Monetary Policy Report: The benefits of easing continue to outweigh the costs and risks, says Bernanke in his prepared testimony. Maybe putting to rest the kerfuffle from last week's FOMC minutes, he says QE will continue until there are substantial labor market gains. Watch live here[View news story]
    Whoa! Whoa,Whoa!
    Nice shootin' there Tex!
    Care to allow us time to get our feet of the floor,
    the sh** is gettin' deep in here!

    Bernanke / Yellen are DESTROYING the working slobs of this once PROUD country!

  • President Obama is due to meet Republican Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham today, ostensibly to talk about immigration reform, although you'd expect the looming $85B in spending cuts to crop up in conversation. There's otherwise little indication that Democrats and Republicans are in negotiations to cancel/postpone the sequestration. [View news story]
    Slobama will feel right at home with all PROGRESSIVES in attendance!

    Hey you two screw ups, your R.I.N.O. and worthless to true conservatives, jump the shark over to the "Dark Side" with Louis Farrahkan and his perversion to defend this administrations vile street justice!

  • Bernanke: Economist or politician? The chairman goes near purple with rage as a Senator suggests he's a dove. I've got the best inflation record of any post-war Fed chairman says Bernanke, pointing to a 2% average. So that's how we're ranking things? By that spurious reasoning, Paul Volcker has the worst inflation record of any Fed chief ever. [View news story]
    This administration and Bernanke have perfected the perversion that if you tell a LIE enough, with more indignation each time it will somehow turn it REAL!

    Sir, you and your policies are KILLING the working slob and have permanently DESTROYED the once mighty Free Market System,
    because S.A. is a family themed blog I will resist the Massive Urge to really let you know how I feel!
    A pox on all your houses!

    May the good lord watch over this once mighty experiment in freedom / man's self rule we once proudly called America

    God save the Republic

  • NBC's unceremonious ratings tumble continues to astound media analysts with the latest development being that its expected 5th place sweeps finish (behind Univision) saw Saturday Night Live the top-rated show on the entire network even with its tricky time slot. The rub: The network has already sunk large costs into new fall series which if they don't succeed could dent profits for parent Comcast (CMCSA). [View news story]
    Maybe people are fed up with the progressive Slobama worship and worthlessness of the content put out by this sham of a network

  • Market recap: Stocks bounced to modest gains after lawmakers offered somewhat optimistic remarks following a fiscal cliff meeting with Pres. Obama. But trading was light in a day where the news gaining the most attention was the apparent demise of Hostess Twinkies. Treasury yields slipped to their lowest since August; the dollar rose to two-month highs. NYSE gainers led losers seven to five. [View news story]
    Hostess employed 18,500 PEOPLE!
    18,500 FAMILIES!
    And the union cared so much for these 18,500 dues paying members that they would rather WALK away from a comprise,ANY FRACKING COMPRISE!
    This is disgusting!
    What are these men and women going to do now?
    Merry Christmas,
    your job is GONE?

    Go try and replace their $35/50,000 dollar a year job!
    This is what the Richard Trumka's,
    the Stephen Lerner's of the world, do for the rank and file!
    Welcome to Chicago Politics!

  • In case you missed it, the U.K. has pulled out of the EU, writes Ambrose Evans-Pritchard. The proximate cause is the country's move to exit the so-called Pillar III of jurisdiction, but just as important is the EU's move towards banking union of which the U.K. will have little part. AEP is liking Europe better already. "Good fences. Good neighbors." [View news story]
    Well it's about time! Why wait and go down in history as part of the greatest failure in monetary fiasco's along with Sir Alan Greenspan and Bubble Blowin Ben Bernanke!

  • Jeff Lacker's down vote today means he's dissented (12 times) from FOMC decisions more often than he's joined the majority (11). He's also on track to dissent at every FOMC meeting this year, a record matched by Thomas Hoenig in 2010. His actions may earn him the ire of his colleagues, but the thumbs-up from those uncomfortable with overwhelming consensus. [View news story]
    Thank you Mr. Lacker, your concern for the American Working Man / Woman is a breath of fresh air among these progressive / quasi socialist fools!
    The American worker deserves and demands a STRONG DOLLAR policy and when Bubble Blowin Ben and his QE stun gun are thrown out on their ear by the next President Of The United States, Mitt Romney, things will change for the better!
    The power of your conviction is duly noted and a grateful Republic thanks you.

  • "The MPC does stand ready to inject more money into the economy," says Bank of England Governor King in a speech defending the bank's £375B QE program, and holding out the hope for more. [View news story]
    What are you talking about Merv?
    Speak English you bloke!
    People cant eat and heat their homes on your double talk which is as useless as your policies!
    The pain is real and all your "Let Them Eat Cake" hyperbole will come back to you in spades!

  • More from the BoE's King: Describing the U.K. recovery as proceeding "at a slow and uncertain pace," King says the bank "will think long and hard before it decides whether or not to make further asset purchases." Sterling remains -0.4% and buying $1.5944. [View news story]
    Yeah, think long and hard into the dustbin of history you useless good for nothing!
    Just when will all these brainiac's realize they ARE the problem!
    Bernanke has destroyed the free market system and Obama and the O.W.S. / Fabian Socialist Society progressives on both sides of the pond have and will continue to be the bane of free people all over the world!

    Read "The Road To Serfdom" again, and try and learn something!

  • Treasury bond bulls as far back as memory goes, Hoisington and Hunt remain so, explaining how Federal Reserve actions serve to slow economic activity. Rising CPI during QEs I and II "had a devastating effect on workers' incomes," they write. Bernanke's wealth effect is a myth, they say, with zero benefit for those with incomes less than $130K, and negligible help for those over. As always, a great read. [View news story]
    Bernanke and his Bubble Blowin QE Stun Gun have destroyed the middle class!
    When Romney wins in a landslide and gets rid of the corruption at the Treasury, Tax Cheat Timmy should be indicted, the next move is to bring some sanity back to our once free market system and REMOVE Bernanke!

    The pain will be real, but we need to face it and then move on.
    This QE perdition has only served the Wall Street Money Changers at the expense of every working man / woman who played by the rules, saved all their lives and lived within their means.
    You could add those who actually sacrificed their wants now for the comfort of an easy life in retirement, they have been royally screwed with this abortion called Fed Policy!

    Tell me Ben, how the frack is someone aged 70 plus and depending on some interest income for their daily needs going to accept the level of risk you have forced on them?
    They can't!

    Bernanke, as well as Greenspan are epic FAILURES and deserve the scorn of an ungrateful country!
    A pox on both your houses!

    God save the Republic!

  • Twenty-five years after the October 1987 crash, could it happen again? "It's really different this time. It's much worse," Randall Forsyth writes. In 1987, all it took to ease the pressure on financial markets was to cut interest rates, and there was plenty of room to do so. But today, central bankers have run out of basis points and the eurozone status quo is untenable, meaning that fixing a crash would be a vastly bigger challenge. [View news story]
    Yes, of course it could happen again.
    I have never seen a Limit Down Day, I could easily see this happening soon.
    The fools at the Fed,
    Bernanke in particular have sown the seeds of the nightmare that is going to unfurl sooner or later.

    The real threat is and HAS been Deflation.
    There will be a time for gold and silver,
    although silver does have other applications that gold does not.
    So if you have to own a P.M.
    silver would be my choice.
    This deflationary morass of Bubble Blowin Ben's is all his own doing!

    If Greenspan had let the markets clear in 2000,
    there would have been pain a plenty,no doubt!
    But Alan,(I wasn't wrong, my models were wrong) Greenspan knew better than the Free Market system he was charged with protecting!

    He and Benny the Bookie kept rates to low for to long,(sound familiar) and we got the mighty Housing Bubble and subsequent crash!
    Then in 2009,
    these same charlatans couldn't take the pain anymore,
    Bernanke swore under oath,"We are not going to monetize the debt", so he foolishly followed Japan,(and turned Japanese) and now we have QE TO INFINITY!

    The system will clear!
    The debt must be wound down along with the return of the original sin that is now in full bloom again,

    When Romney wins in a landslide,
    first order of business is to telegraph to the markets that Bernanke will NOT be reappointed and the new Romney policy will be a strong Dollar Policy and mean it!
    We will suffer a massive recession, adding to the misery of this ongoing depression.
    But we will overcome,
    good will vanquish evil and the economy will return,
    just not as fast as we would like.

    Have faith,
    this country won World War 2,
    this country put a man on the moon!
    We are the still, despite the progressive / socialist policies of the most corrupt administration in the republic's history,
    the destination of millions who risk their lives just trying to reach our shores!

    No more apologies,
    we will return,
    rightly so to our place atop,
    The Commanding Heights,
    and the world will cheer!

    May the good Lord watch over this fragile little experiment in freedom / man's self rule we call America.

  • Angela Merkel has softened her tone a bit with Greece, saying that while the country should keep to its agreements, the government is progressing with its reforms and should be given "another chance time and again." The eurozone is considering ways to cut Greece's debt burden, such as allowing the nation to use ESM money to buy back its deeply discounted bonds, Reuters reports. [View news story]
    Spot on Untrusting!

    If I may throw in my 2 cents.
    What the people of Greece need is HOPE!
    I don't know how you go about bringing God back into a continent that has lost faith,
    but the suicide rate is climbing and there needs to be someone who is actually looking out for the people!

    The rise of the Nazi party, or should I say,
    the rebirth of the Fascist / Communist ideology is trying to fill the vacuum left by the "Global, one world party" failure of the Fabian Socialist Society should be wake up call enough!

    But as with "The Night Of Long Knives",
    the people have to eat and when they are desperate enough,
    they will turn to the once unimaginable!

    In America, we have the "Fast and Prayer" going on to ask the Lords hand in the righting of our republic before the people of this great country go down a path that has never seen a return from the depths of despair!

    Let us,
    in our own daily reflections of all we have been blessed with here in America remember those around the world who suffer at the hands of the ideologue!

    The worst fate is losing your OWN feeling of self WORTH!
    Becoming dependent on some mealy mouthed politician for your pride and freedom is the surest way to relinquish both!

    May the good Lord watch over this fragile little experiment in freedom / man's self rule we call America.
    And to our brothers and sisters of the world,
    your parents and grandparents have endured this pain before,
    they looked to God for inspiration in the face of unimaginable evil,
    the Lord DID hear them,
    and hears you today.

    Strength and courage!

  • Market recap: Stocks closed near session lows, with the Dow posting back-to-back triple-digit losses, as outlooks from Chevron, Alcoa and Cummins added to concerns about a global slowdown. The IMF warned that if the eurozone fails to solve the debt crisis, its banks could be forced to sell as much as $4.5T worth of assets. NYSE decliners beat advancers seven to six. [View news story]
    I am a little more cautious here folks!
    The action in Apple has been terrible.
    The Nasdq is Apple,
    20% of the index is Apple, I believe.
    Risk to the downside is about to become crystal clear!

    You could finally see a limit down day on one of the averages.
    Flash Crash for real?
    Octobers are a real mother franken-futter!
    Look out for profit taking, raising cash into year end!

    Wave "C" or 3RD wave down are violent!
    and quick!
