Nationalism is evil, it leads to evil in the name of patriotism, the last vestige of the scoundrel, as the saying goes.
Yeah, it's a warning shot, WS has the FED cornered. But maybe Janet is made of sterner stuff than we give her credit for. We'll see.
FED can't have its cake and eat it too. If it does not want the $USD to go ballistic and crater markets, there needs to be a valve - they hate gold, but its the only outlet available.
Ultimately, when we grow up, whenever that is, gold will be just a very pretty metal with great conductive properties. Until then, with caution, I suspect it'll take another big run.
If gold is not allowed to assume the old role of safe haven, the $USD will continue to strengthen, strangling the US economy. Just a theory, but I think the FED and other CBs will have to remove their stranglehold on old yeller, as much they hate to, at least temporarily. It may have one more gust left in it.
Ah, more brilliant journalism from Yahoo. They could teach Walter Cronkite a thing or two. Yes, that great bilateral relationship that defines the 21st Century, Japan-Greece. Until recently, almost all of the cameras used to snap photos of the Parthenon were made in Japan.
Like one of those corals where they heard the poor beasts through single file to the slaughter pen.
Maybe they believe in what they are doing. I know its been a while since real people, not gov or MSM propagandists, actually took a stand, but this is what it looks like.
How do these pathetically weak countries threaten your interests? Seriously, Iran spends 1%, no typo, of what the US does every year on defence. And in their case, it is defence. Israel and the US are constantly threatening attack, with their good buddy cowardly Saudi standing behind.
Japan all likely recover most of tonight's losses before close. Hong Kong did, Shanghai is running around like a chicken with its head cut off, although last night it was like a whole flock, so it's much better. If today proved anything, it's that the FED and WS have it all under their command. The correction will come when they agree on a time that will result in the maximum transfer of wealth, again. They really do have it totally under control. The idea of free enterprise and markets is quaint. Today is about power and control, and you can't control anything when all hell breaks loose as markets crash, unless of course they've been scheduled to. Forget it people, nothing will happen tomorrow, it'll be a complete recovery. The most honest market on the planet today, ironically, is probably Greece.
There was clearly plenty of video showing the 2nd plane the tower. Was that an illusion. A missile dressed up as a plane?
It's been a whole 7 years, almost 3/8 of a generation. Who has that kind of memory? Can't blame the feds, they aren't computers.
Do these people get paid for these stories?
What or who is a debrisys? I've had one moniker since forever. Is that so hard to understand? That someone who disagrees with your racist rants can be honest? People like you are dangerous, they come out of the woodwork if there's a lynch mob about.
