  • Obama to seek Congressional approval on Syria strikes: Clarity or more uncertainty? [View news story]
    Obama's not a puppet too?

    Dems and Repubs all kneel and kiss the same elite rings.

  • Obama to seek Congressional approval on Syria strikes: Clarity or more uncertainty? [View news story]
    This is Obama's way out. 5 days ago he wasn't worried about asking for permission. Now he can look tough "Hey, don't look at me. I wanted to bomb Assad", while Congress rejects a new war.

  • Kerry makes the case against Syria [View news story]
    Think we'd be considering an attack if it were anywhere outside of the oil and gas rich middle east?

    See Rwanda
    See Darfur
    See The Congo

    Let's not hear anymore whining about how the Republicans are the only warmongers. Democrats support this garbage when they're in control too.

    The number of children we kill in these attacks will be "limited" as well, I'm sure.

  • Gold Is Going Higher Whether Or Not The Fed Tapers [View article]
    Works great in textbook theories.

    In the meantime, wages fall, and prices rise. Stagflation for the middle class. Meanwhile, our President is more concerned about bombing a country that's done nothing to us.

    Well, middle class real income continues to fall. No denying that.

    Current Fed mandate would be okay if there were a better method of getting the new dollars into the average American's hands. The current setup primarily just transfers wealth to the connected few.

    Wanna see consumer spending grow? Cut every American a $1000 check every now and then.

  • U.S. could go it alone in attack on Syria after U.K. rejection [View news story]
    The correct course of action is to support Syrian refugee camps in Jordan and Turkey. Picking a side in this civil war is foolish.

    Eh, it's not about "spreading democracy".

    There was democracy in Egypt, we supported a coup to overthrow it.

    There is democracy in the west bank and gaza. We hate them both.

    We blindly support Saudi, Qatari, Jordanian monarchies.

    Supporting Christian murdering rebels in Syria is not my idea of "spreading freedom" anyway.

  • The Syria Effect: Emerging Markets On Sale - Attention Contrarians And Rational Investors [View article]
    Looks like Obama was all hat and no cattle when it comes to striking Syria. I'm glad we're not starting another war, but man, is this the weakest President ever? Carter maybe?

  • Where Do VIX And Volatility ETPs Go From Here? [View article]
    Again, tend to agree w/ Macro here. The only real risk is if this spills next door into open Sunni/Shia conflict in Iraq.

    When missles start flying, I'll buy the dip in something....

    Macro. Well said, sir.

    I think the only way we win is by letting these fools fight each other. Just like they always have, and always will.
