Ben certainly has created,....ONE HELL OF A MESS....imo. i think a lot of people would agree., winding down Q-E is going to be much harder than they all thought, and if they lose control of the markets, due to the incestuous relationship with the Banks and Brokers....,then i hope they see SEC. indictments as a plausible remedy.
he will emphasize is unwavering support of the "FREE MARKET SYSTEM", and relish in his accomplishment of saving the economy from the jaws of death. and point to the substantial progress that has been made all in his tenure as fed. chair. he'll furthermore bask in the glory of record high equity markets, and pronounce to the world; he and only he, was the true peace keeper of freedom for capitalism.
then he will take a bow and as the lights fade from the glistening floor, you will hear his last utterance to the audience.....in a very low, but distinctly audible voice, he will say........TAPER ON BABY!

with the utter failure of (non) affordable healthcare, why would the Republicans give up leverage on the budget now. sure they might throw O a bone on Unemployment benefits or some bits of delaying cuts in other social programs and cost cutting is easily ignored by both parties, however the real meat of any deal is far, far, far, away by any stretch of the imagination. and the reps. have some genuine leverage they can use here. So if your praying for a fast and easy budget deal, forget about it.

i say fight fire with fire..... and just nuke fukushima..... to burn off all the radiation a one time......Baaaaahaaa.
pretty easy pick, almost as easy as betting Q-e is going down, and Yellen will become the new chairman of mass decent.
Well, thanks for admission of the evidence, now.....JUDGE ...hall him away. and throw that key away....every one who's made money in this market is now under indictment for conspiracy to commit Fraud......we'll go easy on ya, if you pay back in restitution and become a Bear.......Baaaahaaa.
the other alternative is not a pretty one.....I'm a Bear....but total financial collapse is not what i want either.
