  • Unstable Economic Equilibrium Is the Current Reality: How This Affects Markets [View article]
    "a perfect constant temperature"

    Say what?

    Under no circumstance - other than highly idealized conditions, meaning physically impossible conditions - will your vertical pin be in stable equilibrium. Why? (From Wiki -without the leaks:)

    Zitterbewegung (English: "trembling motion", from German) is a theoretical rapid motion of elementary particles, in particular electrons, that obey the Dirac equation. The existence of such motion was first proposed by Erwin Schrödinger in 1930 as a result of his analysis of the wave packet solutions of the Dirac equation for relativistic electrons in free space, in which an interference between positive and negative energy states produces what appears to be a fluctuation (at the speed of light) of the position of an electron around the median, with a circular frequency of , or approximately 1.6×10_21 Hz.

    All I can say is that Karl Derringer is one of the primary reasons I wish this site would allow you to put contributors on ignore.

  • The Victims of Economic Triage: A Response to Bob Herbert [View article]
    Sadly, I am afraid you are too intelligent for the standard greedy mugwumps on this site.

    I suggest starting your own blog. (Or better yet just ignore the comments.)

  • The Gordian Nightmare of Public Pensions [View article]
    It is a thing of beauty the way a hardline conservative - like Tony above - can take a story about a large-scale, impending problem and just moan and groan in a nonsensical way without ever acknowledging the problem - let alone proposing or discussing a solution!

    I finally understand how the stream of nonsense emanating from FOXsnooze survives.Thanks Tony!

    And hey Tony...don't forget to bag your tea tonight!!!!

    Tony from above says that kind of Republican logic makes perfect sense?

  • John Hussman: 12 Reasons for Market Caution [View article]
    Stay on the site for a while newbie and at times you too will grow frustrated with people who pound the same point time and time again.

    The best bloggers are those that can balance the short- and long-term perspective.

    Clearly I don't think John has been able to do that this year.

    Still he does always provide food for thought.

    Looking forward to future insights to help me get safe early.

  • Disinflation Denial [View article]
    You're stupid and hateful comments are an embarrassment to this site and yourself.

    I challenge you to demonstrate that you have any understanding of real common sense. Not the moronic definition pushed by you hateful pals at FOXsnooze.

    Yeah, someone with actual skin in the game.

    (Not thrilled with how often I see disclaimers on SA claiming no holdings. It may often be appropriate but I often want to comment - get some skin in the game!)

  • Financial Crisis Panel in Turmoil: GOP Members Vote to Remove Key Phrases From Report [View article]
    "Why, oh why, can’t we have better Republicans thinking about the financial system?"

    Answer: because a thinking Republican politician is an oxymoron.

    Oh, that was an easy one.
