Turd Traveling - Open Thread

Mon, Apr 9, 2012 - 8:13am

I am traveling today after spending the Easter weekend away with MrsF and the LTs.

I hope that by later today I will be able to post a review of the day's events as well as some updated charts. For now, this is simply an open thread. The only discussion item I have is this new post from Gonzalo Lira. Where Gonzalo excels is in forward thinking. In this piece, he alerts readers that Spain will be the next "eurozone crisis" and gets you wondering about just how this will all play out.

And I just found this interview of Uncle Ted. Please take the time to read it today.

That's all for now as we are packing things up and I can hear MrsF hollaring for me from the next room. I'd better get moving...if I know what's good for me.

More later. Have a great day. TF

Hmm - More JPM BS

I heard about this over the weekend, but just saw this video from Bloomberg. I cannot believe that JPM has a Trader that carries this amount of influence and is not fully endorsed by the JPM top brass. "Rogue Trader", my ass. More obfuscation!

The Video Link is Here.

"We're All Doomed, Mr. Mainwaring" ... SO :-

.... We might as well die laughing (or at least hopefully with a small grin on our face) :-

Quote:

The Economy is So Bad That…

I got a pre-declined credit card in the mail.

African television stations are now showing ‘Sponsor an American Child’ commercials.

Wives are having sex with their husbands because they can’t afford batteries.

I ordered a burger at McDonald’s and the kid behind the counter asked, “Can you afford fries with that?”

CEO’s are now playing miniature golf.

Exxon-Mobil laid off 25 Congressmen.

A stripper was killed when her audience showered her with rolls of pennies while she danced.

I saw a Mormon polygamist with only one wife.

I bought a toaster oven and my free gift with the purchase was a bank.

The bank returns your check marked “Insufficient Funds,” but you're unsure if you should phone them and ask if they meant you or them.

McDonald’s is selling the 1/4 ouncer.

Angelina Jolie adopted a child from America.

Parents in Beverly Hills fired their nannies and learned their children’s names.

My cousin had an exorcism but couldn’t afford to pay for it, and they re-possessed her!

A truckload of Americans was caught sneaking into Mexico.

A picture is now only worth 200 words.

They renamed Wall Street “Wal-Mart Street”.

The Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas is now managed by Somali pirates.

Congress says they are looking into this Bernard Madoff scandal. ... Oh Great! The guy who made $50 Billion disappear is being investigated by the people who made $1.5 Trillion disappear!

And, finally…

I was so depressed last night thinking about the economy, wars, jobs, my savings, Social Security, retirement funds, etc., I called the Suicide Hotline. I got a call center in Pakistan, and when I told them I was suicidal, they got all excited, and asked if I could drive a truck.

Sounds like your extended family are giving Scientologists a bad name. Of course everyone has their own opinion and they don't take sides really, but most I know are Ron Paul supporters (There are a TON in Los Angeles).

Ron Paul & Frank Zappa agree…

Hope I'm not kicking a hornets nest with this, but it IS an open thread:

Ron Paul and Frank Zappa on the Danger of American Fascism

Don't be put off by the last minute or so where a some folks whom many here love to hate are given a few moments of screen time. The opinions of both Zappa & Paul are 100% correct IMO.

Metals stocks went up and then down again even

though gold is up and the market is coming back. Man are they doing everything they can to kill interest in the mining shares

Equities Basically Flat

Is it just me or is the miniscule decline in the stock market being blown way​ out of proportion? The S&P 500 is down about 40 points from its recent high of 1422. This is less than a 3% drop and it is still up from where it was a month ago. It's all over the news that it is collapsing to the point where I'm concerned either people's perspective of what a real collapse is, is off, or it is media preparation for something.
