Three Years On and Things Are Only Getting Worse

Fri, Jul 8, 2011 - 8:46am

The Shill, The Coug and LIESman are "stunned" and "shocked" this morning at the lousy, awful and horrible BLSBS report. Really? Really?? Come down from your ivory towers and visit Main Street every once in a while you dopes! Utterly clueless, status quo, inside-the-box thinking.

I sure hope that, by now, none of this surprises any of you. The U.S. economy stinks on ice and it will continue to. What does this mean?

1) Tax receipts at the federal, state and local level will continue to decline.

2) Politicians will try to raise taxes which will only exacerbate the economic malaise.

3) Government debts at all levels will grow at an increasing pace.


5) The ultimate impact will be unprecedented global insecurity and upheaval.

We are here to help each other and warn others. There is still time but the sand is nearly drained from the hourglass. Protect yourself and your family while you still can. TF

Gold says " We don't need no stinking JOBS!!!

They need to pull the plug on this ministry of propaganda outfit. IT will probably be just the opposite though, they will keep them on the air even when the viewership falls to 10 people. Like Goebels blaring thru the streets of Berlin as the bombs were falling in 44-45'.

Turd, how do you think this

Turd, how do you think this will affect metals prices? It appears gold is getting a safe haven bid while silver is still being traded more as a commodity. Does this guarantee QE3 in August?

alert on Gold

I will be careful on this spike close to highs in Gold. I know what tends to happen everytime Gold does this. The Empire comes in and massively shorts it. Will trail my stops now. I anticipate once again a full scale onslaught on its price. I would be delighted to see otherwise but at least in the Globex this promises a counterattack.

Everytime Gold spikes high and close to 'breakout' when all the momentum traders get excited they hammer the price. Is this time different?

To my man, flaunt

Flaunt you've been around here long enough to know that "QE Can't and Won't Ever End". August, doesn't matter. It will continue. There are NO OTHER OPTIONS.

Totally weird that Gold

Totally weird that Gold surges at a higher percentage than silver. They are capping silver by selling into the rally I have to conclude.

Birth Death model adjustment

Birth Death model adjustment added 131K jobs in June, so the 18K jobs added really was worse than it looks.

:)  Yes I know QE will never

:) Yes I know QE will never end... I'm just foolishly trying to time some swing trades and thinking Jackson Hole in August will prove to be when the bearded clam unleashes another round.

ALL analysists were wrong

What really struck me with the report just out is that ALL (way over paid) economist were wrong as actual 18K versus lowest expectations of 105K really shows how worthwhile it is to pay attention to all these well educated economists.

Well as TF wrote, we have each other to help & share our knowledge with.

And yeah, keep stacking that physical.
