Complicit regulators perpetuating the sham in spite of the second Great Depression with 20+% real unemployment. Disgusting to say the least, but at least China and others got it right by not lending us any more money. We print more anyway, devaluing what we pay back (if we pay it back). Obama administration to monitor the markets for fairness to all? LOL! He's one of them, maybe the biggest one. His legacy will be that of...nothingness anyway.
"Yes, whatever you want. Sure, I'll maintain this bad policy. I just want this job. I'll say and do whatever you want. I'll be your puppet. I have no mind of my own. I repeat: I'll be your puppet - I have no mind of my own."
Disgusting if that's the way it is. Sure looks it.
How about solving the real issues such as the 20% real unemployment rate instead of just saying it's going to be a 'long time" before that gets any better!
Hey Janet, get a mind of your own - you're in charge now (or are you???).
When one was asked on a prominent financial news program recently about the runup in the markets after the storms, bad economic data and more the answer was (paraphrasing)..."Duh."
That's what an unrelegulated "crock market" with payola will do - make everyone but the manipulators look stupid (including the media who also try to "analyze" it). The government is pronting more money ("stimulus", LOL!) and giving it to the people who support their political aspirations financially. Just wonderful (sarcasm)! And they expect the public to believ it, like we're idiots. That's what's going on, folks.
Look how bold the manipulators are to fix the market in their favor no matter what the news. Are the daily ups and downs scripted days in advance so that no matter what happens the crooks get their loot? What a scam!
The Dow should have lost 350 points based on the horiible jobs report -- 113,000 new jobs, are you kidding me? The weather a factor - what a joke!
The unemployment rate ticked down? Another joke. It's not down becaues more people are working (obviously), but because people's unemployment insurance stopped (reminder - no extension) - so they are no longer counted in the base number! But they're still unemployed, and now even in worse shape with no extension of benefits!
Where are the "reporters" to tell us this obvious fact - on the payola payroll?! Anyone have a conscience? How stupid.
Wall Street - the most crooked street in America (more than Lombard in California). What a j-o-k-e.
Markets will be back up by Friday or soon after, when the manipualtors have seen how many suckers believes their bs about "emerging markets" (latest "crisis"). They also dupe the media which is either complicit or unwitting, dutiful puppets believing what's being told (lol). Look who you're dealing with!
The criminals can't bear to part with their precious money, even in fake selloff they create. Any bets as to the next "crisis" and a football game line on how many days before the "crisis" ends and the market "rebounds"? LOL!
Markets will be way up from here within a few trading days, probably Friday. The criminals who manipulate the markets can't stand to lose their precious money, even in a fake selloff they created. They're waiting to see how many suckers sell to them at a low price before manipulating the markets back up. Then their shills tell the complicit (and maybe unwitting) media (paraphrasing), "Duh, we thought things were really awful, but guess not" (fake sharklike smile). Emerging markets aere the latest "crisis." What's next? There should be football like betting on the next stupid Wall Street trick, with a line such as how many days before they manipulate the markets again with some crock reason.
I'll bet the Wall Streeters laugh at the reporters who belive their #$%$ behind their backs (why shouldn't they?).
The Three Stooges: Wall Street manipulators, the media, and th fools who believe any of them!
There are no regulations so the manipulators say, "Today let's shake up the markets and pretend the emerging markets are in 'crisis' " (who's really checking their numbers, anyway except for the investors manipulating our markets to their advantage), and then the next day or two "decide" that there really is no 'crisis' there.
Or better yet , my favorite, that the bad economic reports are really a positive because the fed will step in with more "stimulus" (crisis money) - and therefore it's party time again. Are people really stupid enough to believe this nonsense? What's worse is that the "Street" (a meaningless place, except they think they're important), thinks we are.
"Dips" Yeah, for 24-48 hours so the manipulators can scare you and then biy your shares cheap.
Like I said, a joke - and a sad hoax/commentary on our society.
Who pulled out this one again? Don't buy the BS - it's another stupid wall street trick. The greedsters can't stand to do without their precious "money" for the weekend. Trying to get you to sell into the "sell-off' (LOL!!!) so they can buy your shares lower tomorrow (or at the end of the day today). Can't they come up with anything better than the same old stupid tricks yet again?
Remember that the markets are manipulated for the benefit of the wealthy with the regulators in their pockets. They have to make it "look good" some days. Where are the mdia to call out this bs. Are they "bought" too???
They just can't stand to watch their ill-begotten "gains" disappear. Yesterday was all a hoax. With no-one overseeing them legally, why not make themselves richer at the other investors expense...those investors who see the fraud and bet the market is already way too high (which it is).
90% of all the "wealth" since the market's "rebound" has gone to 10% of the investors (guess who?)
did you hear yesterday that a large segment of consumer spent less on holiday shopping, and that the only segment to spend more than last year was the wealthy? Guess where they got this extra money?
crooks are rujnnign wall street and the regulators are letting them get away with it, and it's so obvious. "record" numbers in the second great depression? Lol.
No, it's Wall Street. Awful December jobs report now trying to be "spun" to be a positive by the great complicit media machine so the rich can get richer at the other investors' expense. The Dow should be easily down triple digits based on the horrible numbers. Isn't the consumer spending 70%of the economy? Didn't the jobs report suck? Wasn't it reported that more Americans have "stopped looking" (LOL) in more than 35 years? Stopped looking? Or no longer qualify for unemployment insurance and are no longer counted, resulting in the "lower" unemployment rate (LOL again).
How disgusting is that! No wonder no countries want to loan us money, so we retaliate by printing tons more of our own to devalue not only the loans we owe, but the dollar's value of all Americans' savings! look at the rampant inflation. Look at how greedy manufacturers are PUTTING LESS IN THEIR PACKAGES (READ THE NET WEIGHTS!) so they can rip off their own customers. Disgusting part 2.
The good news is if you have a sense of humor Wall Street will entertain you - it's a real joke, and more so that they expect us to believe the bs..
The rich enriched themselves by paying for stock market manipulation to benefit them at the expense of others while the regulators took the money and looked the other way.
No wonder other countries don't trust us, and American citizens don't trust, either.
It's all an unregulated scam.
Do they think the customer is stupid or what? How about selling a refrigerator without a door and making a big deal about it being "doorless"?
And if Hanes is tagless, does it cost LESS for the customer since a piece is now missing? We know the answer to that - no. If sales are down (hopefully they tell the truth about that), maybe it's because people see right through the "tagless" ruse. Maybe they'd rather be "Hanesless."
"Tagless" is a stupid idea. Whoever thought of this stupid idea should be "payless."
If I see them I totally ignore them. I think advertisers on Facebook are wasting their money - people I know don't even think there are ads on it. That's not why I'm there. I also think Facebook is now getting boring, and am considering a move. Too commercialized, not the way it was supposed to be.
The market is so crooked. I'm so glad the POPE called out Wall Street. Beyond the criminality and regulator's complicity, he cites that the system we are I (worship of money) is destroying our civility/society - and I agree.
I've exited Wall Street. Good riddance!
The real price you pay is in the end, if you know what I mean. That's what the Pope is talking about, and why he is Time magazine's Man of the Year - well-deserved!
And Obama - ha! Real joke. "60 Minutes" piece last night about the NSA not listening in on calls of average citizens/spying on websites - bigger joke!
How did our society sink to such a low level? Certainly, money and the crookedness it brings is one main reason.
