Oh wow!!! I'm gonna rush right down to the nearest stockbroker and open an account right away. Oh thank you so so much for alerting me about JPM. You're darn tootin' I'm gonna act NOW!!!!! How can I thank you enough for such important information... how do you pronounce busovumenmudu??? That's Russian ain't it?
Get yer pink #$%$ back where you came from.
Y'all better wait 'til you hear more about Greece.
to prop up Dow. Looks a bit like over-reaction to me. Of course, now's no time to take any chances. Better to err on the side of overblowing the bubble than letting it collapse.
IMO, it's more likely that Russian deflation and Chinese mfg stagnation would be something other than favorable for Eurozone. Of course, short term, all this strengthens U.S. dollar... I guess.
I guess Euro decline is good for American ascendancy? Probably Putin's problems are more to the point.
Greek candidate Dimas loses crucial presidency ballot
Stavros Dimas has lost the first round of a critical presidential ballot. Should he fail to gain approval of at least 180 lawmakers, it could spell disaster for the nation's economic recovery.
Stavros Dimas Präsidentschaftskandidat in Griechenland ARCHIV 2012
Greek lawmakers entered a high-stakes ballot on Wednesday that could lead to snap elections. Although it is largely a ceremonial position, if former EU Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas doesn't win the presidential vote, this could pave the way for early legislative elections, and radical leftist party Syriza is currently leading in the opinion polls.
The first round of three votes for the presidency ended in defeat for Dimas. The ruling government only has 155 seats in parliament, and Dimas needed 200. Should a third and final round be necessary on December 29, Dimas will only need 180.
Fears over the future of reforms put in place to tackle the country's economic crisis and to receive a 240 billion euro (300 billion dollar) bailout sent shockwaves through the markets, with Athens stocks losing more than one fifth of the value over four days and reducing the value of the euro.
The election for president has been moved up from February, a huge gamble for prime minister Antonis Samaras, who barely holds on to a majority in parliament. The ballot was moved to Wednesday to reduce uncertainly when fragile negotiations with the nation's creditors, the European Union and the International Money Fund, will be taking place.
A Greek tragedy
The government was hoping to win over at least six opposition members on Wednesday night, as well as several independents, leading to Dimas' confirmation. If they fail to vote him in, Samaras warned, it will be "fatal to the European development of the country."
Dimas is the only candidate, but deputies can avoid voting for him by simply voicing their presence at the meeting and refusing to support him.
I loathe communism... but capitalism ain't any better.
sons and brothers died in Iraq and Afghanistan for either!
Well, then, tell me where the hell I'm wrong.
protected and banks are protected and auto plants are protected but every day working stiffs are screwed. And if you don't think the price of gas not dropping with everything else isn't being screwed... then you ain't the one getting screwed, but probably one of the screwers doing the screwing.
Not to mention when tulips' bubble breaks.
But, somehow, when oil drops 50% that's a wiz bang beautiful wonderful hunky-dory thing.
As far as I know, not too many people in Greece are paying any attention to the Big Bad Wolf :)
Who knows how much longer it will work.
But its effect is usually delayed... actually unpredictable (due to retrograde).
Uranus is said to be the planet of sudden abrupt change and crisis.
And by 'almost' I mean only 3 degrees away (12 degrees retrograde instead of 9 degrees retrograde) in Aries-- both in October 29 and December 2014... as well as 2012 and 2013. Uranus is an extremely slow moving planet, taking 84 1/6 years to complete an orbit of the sun. It goes retrograde once every year due to earth passing it in its orbit; so it repeats and repeats and repeats... until finally it goes away for almost another century.
Only this time Mars is in square from Capricorn (see previous post) instead of Cancer... hardly an improvement.
Saturn in Capricorn and Great Depressions
Every time the U.S. suffered through a great depression, Saturn was found in mid-Capricorn, square (90 degrees from) one of the "heavy" planets in mid-Aries. These heavies have been Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Mars. When Saturn has arrived in mid-Capricorn without Pluto, Neptune, Uranus or Mars being in mid-Aries at the same time, no great depression has occurred.
There have been four great depressions in U.S. history: the 1780s, 1840s, 1870s and 1930s. These are not to be confused with periods of less hardship over shorter time spans, often called depressions or recessions.
Anyone with a history book and a computer can inspect this pattern by acquiring astrological software and erecting two charts. One chart is for July 4, 1776,the United States, and the other for a date when a past great depression was at or near its most severe point. The two charts are then superimposed, the depression chart over the United States chart, creating a biwheel or synastry chart.
