  • The Great Recession Is Over: Time To Back Up The Truck [View article]
    Russ, with all due respect, it's not time to back up the truck. It's time to find a new hobby. We're witnessing the end of America with each atrocity committed by congress, not the end of a recession.

    When you're done backing up, please take a moment to wake up.

  • 2013: The Year Of Printing Money [View article]
    Ahhhhhh to live in fantasy land must be nice!
    "They are wrong on both counts: monetary policy never loses its efficacy, and the current program of expansion will not lead to high inflation (just as the prior rounds of QE did not, despite dire warnings from the hawks)."

    Someone here doesn't eat or clothe or hire.....................

    2013-The Year of Printing Money

    Not more than 5 years after-The Year Americans Will Realize that the Federal Reserve Note is not Real Money

    Double Oops!!!

    Whether the author is correct about 2013 or not, he is someone who believes the Fed's ponzi scheme can continue ad nauseum. To prove my statement, I will point to his not mentioning that rising bond prices, possibly parabolic, isn't catastrophic for the Fed and Treasury. It is
    The concept of price discovery will return whether this author likes it or not. It seems, from the lunacy eminating from the Fed, that the market will force its hand rather than the Fed backing off

  • What Is The Fed Doing? I Love Ben Bernanke [View article]
    " As bad as inflation seems, it is much better than the deflationary spiral we were headed for."

    And that is the true title of this man's article. This is a confession, not a statement. The only, true motivation, if you will for someone to "love" Banana Ben. The rest is "baffle them with bulls...."
    Let me guess, you own some assets that would(shudder....shudd... DECREASE in real value if we let the bank's go under, as they should.
    Knew I could get it out of him.

    I could go on and on such as wondering how can someone possiby recommend the S+P but not gold in this environment.
    Oh, that's right!!!! Inflation is only "possible."

    "Who wins on this QE3 thing? Well, Joe Blow scores like a tall dog in short grass."


    Surprising because there are more Joe Blows on food stamps than ever before since you received that first thrill up your leg when QE1 was unleashed.

    It seems that a soul isn't a prerequisite for mensa membership. Good to know

  • September Car Sales Remain Very Strong [View article]
    Sales?
    I don't think financing a car over six years with no money down should qualify as a sale. Well, what do I know? That similar scheme sure worked for housing last decade, RIGHT?

  • How 20% Unemployment Will Provide Investment Opportunities [View article]
    20% unemployment?
    Invest in steel and lead my friends, if you know what I mean, because money is worthless when you're dead.

  • Prediction: 1M Jobs For The Holidays [View article]
    Yes John,(in this case) I did. While it's no secret my comments are laced with brutal reality, I figured I'd go a step further than Steve and predict that if there will be any retail(outside of gasoline) buying spurt during the holidays, it would be immediately followed by a bigger than usual spending collapse come February.
    The combination of no real jobs, high energy and food prices post draught, credit card bill blues, higher taxes to come will hit like a tsunami. By the end of March, many more will be fired than were temporarily hired four months earlier.

  • Good News, For Now [View article]
    "yesterday's article, "Incredible Inflation Bond Bargain," received more hits than any other article I have written in recent memory. Apparently, people still are looking for bargains, and still looking for bond bargains as well."

    We are all looking for bargains fellow SAers, but please be careful taking advice from these authors.

  • Emperor Bernanke, 3 Castles, And An Inevitable Unwind [View article]
    Emperor Bernanke, 3 Castles, An Inevitable Unwind And The Subsequent Civil War.

    Fixed the title for ya. Felt the civil war that ensues when Banana Ben tries to unload his "assets" might be pertinent.
    Oh, and even if you don't, some readers might.
