We need more government, not less.

Sorry to post so late tonight folks, but I was actually sitting on the Ben Franklin Bridge and trying to decide if I should jump or not. SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY FOUR POINTS? WTF? The sixth worst point drop in Dow history. Thank you tea party. Your political gamesmanship was really good for the country.*sarcasm off* 

"Standard & Poor's downgrade of America's debt couldn't come at a worse time. The result is likely to be higher borrowing costs for the government at all levels, and higher interest on your variable-rate mortgage, your auto loan, your credit card loans, and every other penny you borrow.
Why did S&P do it?

Not because America failed to pay its creditors on time. As you may have noticed, we avoided a default.

And not because we might fail to pay our bills at the end of 2012 if tea-party Republicans again hold the nation hostage when their votes will next be needed to raise the debt ceiling. This is a legitimate worry and might have been grounds for a downgrade, but it's not S&P's rationale.

S&P has downgraded the U.S. because it doesn't think we're on track to reduce the nation's debt enough to satisfy S&P -- and we're not doing it in a way S&P prefers.

Here's what S&P said: "The downgrade reflects our opinion that the fiscal consolidation plan that Congress and the administration recently agreed to falls short of what, in our view, would be necessary to stabilize the government's medium-term debt dynamics." S&P also blames what it considers to be weakened "effectiveness, stability, and predictability" of U.S. policy making and political institutions.

Pardon me for asking, but who gave Standard & Poor's the authority to tell America how much debt it has to shed, and how?

If we pay our bills, we're a good credit risk. If we don't, or aren't likely to, we're a bad credit risk. When, how, and by how much we bring down the long term debt -- or, more accurately, the ratio of debt to GDP -- is none of S&P's business.
S&P's intrusion into American politics is also ironic because, as I pointed out recently, much of our current debt is directly or indirectly due to S&P's failures (along with the failures of the two other major credit-rating agencies -- Fitch and Moody's) to do their jobs before the financial meltdown. Until the eve of the collapse S&P gave triple-A ratings to some of the Street's riskiest packages of mortgage-backed securities and collateralized debt obligations." [Story]

Exactly Mr. Reich. Ironic indeed. The very people who are partly responsible for putting us in this mess, now have the nerve to tell us that they are going to have to downgrade our credit rating. That's like a thief coming into your home, stealing your big screen television, and then complaining to you that the picture isn't clear enough. The nerve!

Meanwhile O is still talking about our deficit problem....huh? O, here is a memo from the field: F&^% the deficit problem! We need jobs! Still, if you insist on going down this road, here is how you solve your little deficit problem: Raise taxes, get the f*&^ out of Afghanistan and Iraq, and start talking about putting people to work. We should be spending more not less. How are you going to stimulate job growth if you are cutting three trillion dollars in federal spending? That is lunacy. But it's just what these wingnuts want, to beat our government into submission. It is the fundamental difference between these folks and those of us who are... well... actually sane. We believe that it is our government's job to make society work in a better more efficient manner. The wingnut, on the other hand, sees our government as the enemy. They fail to realize, of course, that they are the government; we all are.

I will leave you with the words of Dick Polman:

"Obama, having weathered the ginned-up debt-ceiling crisis, is again declaring that he wants to "put America back to work," but those words are hollow. He's handcuffed by this deal. He and the Democrats won't have the money to launch any big job-creation programs even if they muster the will to try.

Of course, that's precisely what the Republicans intended - to starve the government. Most Americans probably don't agree with that strategy, but since when do they have a say? Polls suggest they just want to get back to work, by any means possible. Last month, when Gallup asked people to name their most important issue, 31 percent cited the "economy in general"; 27 percent cited "unemployment/jobs." A distant third, at 16 percent, was "federal budget deficit/debt."

This is a time when the jobs crisis requires more government spending, not less. Consumers won't prime the economic pump, because they're still in a fetal position. Private businesses won't hire, because they're still playing it safe. There's a myth going around - brought to you by the same people who deny climate change - that the 2009 stimulus was a failure. Congressional Budget Office and Commerce Department figures say otherwise; the stimulus plan saved millions of jobs and would have created more had it been bigger."

Thank you Mr. Polman.

Now if you will all excuse me, I have to go and check out some more bridges.

Well, we sure as hell won't be hearing about job creation from God's Own Party. The Corporatocracy is just fine with high unemployment. If we had full employment, their profit margins would shrink and they might not get that 6-figure bonus this year. Their stock options might not increase in value as fast as they would like.

But the GOP will tell us that to create more jobs we need to eliminate the minimum wage, environmental laws, and other shackles on the Corporatocracy. Then and only then will jobs be created here in the US again.

All Obama had to do to raise taxes on the rich was to . . . wait for it . . . wait for it . . . simply let the Bush tax cuts EXPIRE. Which they were set to do all by themselves after a decade of adding to China's control over our economy. But Obama flubbed even that.
Face it, Obama does not know how to fight, and is personally weak. (What, you thought all that bowing before foreign dictators was merely a sign of respect? The man is positively servile.) Hillary Clinton would have made a far better president for these times.

One more thing: on the issue of "jobs creation" what is the logic of continuing to let millions of immigrants into this country during times of record high unemployment? They are not all picking lettuce (at least not in New York or Chicago). Any discussion of job creation will be a joke if it does not include the impact of massive immigration (and things like the H1B visa program) on our citizen workforce.

Also, which party, exactly, is willing to tackle the issue of globalization and the export of our industrial base to China? Not Obama. Not the Republicans. As far as our political elites are concerned, job creation simply isn't their issue.

From the previous thread:

"NEW YORK (CNBC) -- The U.S. doesn't deserve a AA-plus credit rating, much less triple-A, commodity bull and noted investor Jim Rogers said on Monday.

Rogers said the country is unlikely to be able to pay off its debt and that Standard and Poor's rating cut had come too late and should have happened long ago.

"It seems to me it's physically, humanly impossible for the U.S. to ever pay off its debt," Rogers said. "They can roll it over and continue to play the charade, but the U.S. is bankrupt."

Most Americans are knee deep in debt themselves, where credit cards are max'd, esp in the black community.

Point is, the chickens are coming home to roost for debt happy America and of course, they are unhappy about it, including Mr. Field. But don't blame S&P about it. We had plenty of time and Congress acted an irresponsible ass in front of the entire world. It was plain to everyone around the world that there are strong factions in Congress and America who would just as soon default on debts. That alone should scare any creditor.

And so what if we are headed for Dow 10,000 or Dow 6,000 for that matter? What matters more to people is having a job, preferably one with real benefits like health care and an old-timey sort of pension too. Just like Americans used to have, way back when their CEOs made 40 times what the average worker made instead of 500 times that amount. This obsessive focus on where the DOW is day to day is part of the mindset that has screwed this country over for thirty years.

I recall a time in the nineties (December 1996 -- ah, if only I had a time machine) when our then rational Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan warned of the "irrational exuberance" of the marketplace. At the time he gave that warning, the Dow was at about 3,000. Nothing has happened in this country since then to justify it being at 12,000 or 10,000 (CEO compensation does not count) and in many respects we are much much worse off.

All bubbles burst, all Ponzi schemes must inevitably come to an end. To paraphrase the Nixon era economist Ben Stein, if something cannot go on forever, then it will stop.

Mr. Field, don't jump unless there is water under the Ben Franklin Bridge. If my memory serves me right, there is NO water under it. So, please don't jump Mr. Field-you will only make a big mess below.

Look at it this way: "This too shall pass." It might take a decade or two, but this will pass. By then, hopefully you will have made most of your money back.

As a brother I tried to warn you, Mr. Field but for some reason, good or bad, you ignore my comments and advice. I did warn you that your decision to "ride it out" was going to be quite painful.

Now that you've gone far down that rabbit hole, you might as well accept your fate- and relax and enjoy the ride. Next time, put some Gold in your portfolio for protection...it'll keep you off of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Since Harry Reid blamed the Tea Party for delaying this bill getting passed and not supporting it...here's a little stat for the dumbass.

46% of Republicans (Tea Party members) voted NO
49% of Democrats voted NO

So it seems Democrats voted against Reid's bill more than the Tea Party.

Oh the inability to use logic consistently displayed by dimmiecrats never ceases to amaze me, thank god they don't have anything to do with the economy...oh shit...whoops...No wonder. Yes honey call the credit card company tell them I want a higher card limit right now dammit its the only way to get out of debt, by spending more and spending more is more important then oweing less...phew......who voted these people in?

Matumbo said...

Talk is one thing. With Obama, reality is the opposite. Every major Obama initiative has been tailor made to drive up unemployment, prominently including ObamaCare, which pointlessly increases the burdens of hiring; the “stimulus” pork spending, which sucked all the money and credit out of the private economy; and his shadowy campaign, implemented mainly through the EPA, to decimate the energy sector.

The unemployment rate in October 2008, just prior to Obama’s catastrophic election, jumped to 6.5%. Lately it has been holding steady at over 9%. This is a direct and probably deliberate consequence of his malignant policies. Obama et al. are following FDR’s game plan by keeping as many people as possible out of work and dependent on the government.

There is only one thing the federal government can do to alleviate unemployment: get out of America’s way. Under Obama, that is the one thing it will never do.

You must not have had a job long enough to have a pension. Otherwise, you would know that pension funds, retirement funds, mutual funds, stocks are invested in the stock market. Some of those investments are based on the DOW.

Hence people do care where the Dow is at, and the S&P 500. It is very important. Why do you think Field is thinking about jumping off a bridge?

For those of you who would like what is the national deft, deficit, debt ceiling, history of US debt, and who owns US debt, then this link is for you. It is an excellent simple explanation:

http://www.cnbc.com/id/43381362

Anonymous said...

Here's an excerpt from "Credibility,Chutzpah and Debt" pretty much explains what America's real problem is, and it's not S&P:

"And in those rare cases where rating agencies have downgraded countries that, like America now, still had the confidence of investors, they have consistently been wrong. Consider, in particular, the case of Japan, which S.& P. downgraded back in 2002. Well, nine years later Japan is still able to borrow freely and cheaply. As of Friday, in fact, the interest rate on Japanese 10-year bonds was just 1 percent.

So there is no reason to take Friday’s downgrade of America seriously. These are the last people whose judgment we should trust.

And yet America does have big problems.

These problems have very little to do with short-term or even medium-term budget arithmetic. The U.S. government is having no trouble borrowing to cover its current deficit. It’s true that we’re building up debt, on which we’ll eventually have to pay interest. But if you actually do the math, instead of intoning big numbers in your best Dr. Evil voice, you discover that even very large deficits over the next few years will have remarkably little impact on U.S. fiscal sustainability.

No, what makes America look unreliable isn’t budget math, it’s politics. And please, let’s not have the usual declarations that both sides are at fault. Our problems are almost entirely one-sided — specifically, they’re caused by the rise of an extremist right that is prepared to create repeated crises rather than give an inch on its demands.

The truth is that as far as the straight economics goes, America’s long-run fiscal problems shouldn’t be all that hard to fix. It’s true that an aging population and rising health care costs will, under current policies, push spending up faster than tax receipts. But the United States has far higher health costs than any other advanced country, and very low taxes by international standards. If we could move even part way toward international norms on both these fronts, our budget problems would be solved.

So why can’t we do that? Because we have a powerful political movement in this country that screamed “death panels” in the face of modest efforts to use Medicare funds more effectively, and preferred to risk financial catastrophe rather than agree to even a penny in additional revenues.

The real question facing America, even in purely fiscal terms, isn’t whether we’ll trim a trillion here or a trillion there from deficits. It is whether the extremists now blocking any kind of responsible policy can be defeated and marginalized."

August 9, 2011

Gavin DeGraw was viciously beaten by a pack of thugs on the Lower East Side early yesterday -- and then hit by a taxi as he stumbled off, police sources said.

The 34-year-old performer -- who has spent the summer opening for star rock bands Maroon 5 and Train -- had been drinking and just left a group of pals when he was attacked by the marauding goons sometime between 3:50 and 4:20 a.m. at Sixth Street and First Avenue, the sources said.

You really need an education in economics, real-world economics.

Here's the answer to your question, and the irony is painful.

The US government gave S&P its authority.

S&P, Moodys, Fitch, and several other organizations were designated By The US Goverment as Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organizations.

In other words, S&P got its stamp of approval from Washington. But Obama, you and millions of others are uttering in the dark about this simple fact.

OOGA BOOGA REDUX. As I've mentioned before, the hip thing among conservatives these days is to pretend that a black crime wave is sweeping America, and to blame Obama. Not only racist cut-and-paste trolls promote the theory -- rightbloggers have been doing their part, and now more classy-like conservatives seem to be getting on board.
Take Walter Russell Mead. Last month he contributed a laughable essay in which he described modern American cities as urban hellholes out of old Death Wish movies, a characterization even tourists wouldn't buy these days. Now he's gone fully native, and joined the Ooga Booga brigade:
For some time now, residents of some US cities have noted occasional incidents of seemingly random, racially motivated violence in which young Black males are involved. The hot weather and bad economy seem to be combining to generate a small but possibly significant uptick this year.

When, how, and by how much we bring down the long term debt -- or, more accurately, the ratio of debt to GDP -- is none of S&P's business.

Wrong.

S&P has been in the business of analyzing debt for decades. It's what S&P does. And sometimes people are unhappy with S&P's opinions.

We need jobs! Still, if you insist on going down this road, here is how you solve your little deficit problem: Raise taxes, get the f*&^ out of Afghanistan and Iraq, and start talking about putting people to work.

Jobs? Need jobs? But we need to get out of Afghanistan and Iraq? Why?

Our people in Afghanistan and Iraq are working at government jobs. Soldiering is a government job. By winding down operations in those countries soldiers will return to the US for discharge -- to no job.

Meanwhile, companies making equipment used by the military will see reduced orders, and they will subsequently lay off employees.

That is what happens when wars end. Of course these wars should end. But ending our military actions in Iraq and Afghanistan will lead to more unemployment.

Obama is so dumb he has no idea that businesses spring up when people with ideas see an opening.

Did Bill Gates, Michael Dell, Jeff Bezos at Amazon, the two guys at Google, or a long list of other tech guys need the government to get their businesses off the ground? No.

Do oil companies need government help to expand? No.

With respect to the energy industry, the government has only one effect -- to restrict the industry.

Speaking truth to idiots:

Philadelphia mayor talks tough to black teenagers after ‘flash mobs’

The Washington Times
August 8, 2011

PHILADELPHIA — Mayor Michael A. Nutter, telling marauding black youths “you have damaged your own race,” imposed a tougher curfew Monday in response to the latest “flash mob” — spontaneous groups of teens who attack people at random on the streets of the city’s tourist and fashionable shopping districts.

“Take those God-darn hoodies down, especially in the summer,” Mr. Nutter, the city’s second black mayor, said in an angry lecture aimed at black teens.

“Pull your pants up and buy a belt ‘cause no one wants to see your underwear or the crack of your butt.”

“If you walk into somebody’s office with your hair uncombed and a pick in the back, and your shoes untied, and your pants half down, tattoos up and down your arms and on your neck, and you wonder why somebody won’t hire you?

They don’t hire you ‘cause you look like you’re crazy,” the mayor said. “You have damaged your own race.”

"Come on, everyone! Let's all join hands and sing a rousing chorus of "People are People". Surely what we have here is merely a failure to communicate and mutually understand! The fact is that the Post-Modern West has forgotten what both the Imperial Chinese and the Republican Romans very well understood 2,000 years ago. Barbarians are barbarians. They are not civilized people. They do not build, they do not produce, they have no capacity or interest in doing anything more than breed, subsist, and destroy. You build a wall to keep the barbarians out, and when they try to invade, as they eventually will, you utilize civilized discipline to slaughter them. You can try to convert them to civilization in their own lands, and sometimes they will be able to maintain one if the population possesses sufficient average time preferences, but whatever you do, you don't permit them to move in next door.

The picture above is an apt metaphor for Western multiculturalism. The man being beaten up is a press photographer, most likely a nice left-liberal who up until the very moment that the photo was taken was a staunch believer in multiculturalism and human equality. But this image is perhaps even more apt.

And don't fool yourself. This is coming to America soon. Be prepared. Take some of those gold profits and invest in wood, blued steel, copper, and lead. You don't need an arsenal sufficient for the Apocalypse, but at a minimum, you need enough to prove a sufficiently hard target to encourage the barbarians to seek easier prey.

Here is an example of the difference between civilization and barbarism. Note that the barbarians quail before practically ANY show of discipline and determination by the civilized.

"Earlier, a social divide revealed itself in Clapham this morning. Looters stopped sacking shops at the junction between St Johns Road to the north and Northcote Road to the south. To the north are council estates and chain stores such as Debenhams, JD and Currys. These shops were looted. To the south are Victorian terraces and shops like Jack Wills, White Stuff and artisan bakeries. These were untouched. Am told Northcote Road residents formed a line at where the roads meet and let no-one pass."

It's not a social divide, but rather a societal divide. This is why segregation is not only vital, it is a moral imperative supported by thousands of years of evidence. Mass immigration and forced desegregation is literally societal suicide by the civilized."

You'll be disappointed to know that there's nothing going on in Tottenham, right now.

The investigation into the Police shooting is well underway, and people are waiting for the results of that.

This wasn't a race riot - anarchists are being blamed at the moment.

I'm not saying there aren't racial tensions going on - of course they are, but this was a protest against police violence that got out of hand, rather than a straight-up-and-down race riot.

Whether the riot was stoked by anarchists remains to be seen, but probably not even half the rioters were black.

The whole racial dynamic is entirely different here

----------------------------------------------------------------------

LONDON — A wave of violence and looting raged across London and spread to three other major British cities on Tuesday, as authorities struggled to contain the country's worst unrest since race riots set the capital ablaze in the 1980s.

In London, groups of young people rampaged for a third straight night, setting buildings, vehicles and garbage dumps alight, looting stores and pelting police officers with bottles and fireworks.

The riots appeared to have little unifying cause — though some involved in the violence claimed to oppose sharp government spending cuts, which will slash welfare payments and cut tens of thousands of public sector jobs through 2015.

Others appeared attracted simply by the opportunity for violence. "Come join the fun," shouted one youth, racing along a street in the east London suburb of Hackney, where shops were attacked and cars torched.

OOGA BOOGA REDUX. As I've mentioned before, the hip thing among conservatives these days is to pretend that a black crime wave is sweeping America, and to blame Obama. Not only racist cut-and-paste trolls promote the theory -- rightbloggers have been doing their part, and now more classy-like conservatives seem to be getting on board.
Take Walter Russell Mead. Last month he contributed a laughable essay in which he described modern American cities as urban hellholes out of old Death Wish movies, a characterization even tourists wouldn't buy these days. Now he's gone fully native, and joined the Ooga Booga brigade:
For some time now, residents of some US cities have noted occasional incidents of seemingly random, racially motivated violence in which young Black males are involved. The hot weather and bad economy seem to be combining to generate a small but possibly significant uptick this year.
"Occasional incidents," "small but significant uptick" -- sounds confident, doesn't he? Crime in U.S. cities is at historically low levels, yet Mead repeats some of the black-on-white crime stories that have excited the goobers into a Little-Colonel-versus-Silas-Lynch state, and proceeds into deep political analysis -- nearly all of it absolutely ludicrous (Obama and Oprah are involved, and years after welfare became workfare Mead's still bitching about the Great Society), but I'll confine myself to this:
Some whites resent what they see as excessive privilege for Blacks reflected in affirmative action. Many believe that the federal government and the (largely white) upper middle class establishment wants to marginalize the traditional white majority in the US through a combination of deliberate immigration policy aimed at reducing white preponderance in the population and by favoring immigrants and non-whites for education and employment.
For people who feel this way, the reluctance of the mainstream media to cover racial flash mobs is sinister and disturbing.
First, the "reluctance of the mainstream media to cover racial flash mobs" is rich, since Mead's citations are from the mainstream media -- in fact, one of his sources mentions that "my BlackBerry started blowing up with news about what happened Thursday night at the Wisconsin State Fair." Anyone who bothers to look will see that those incidents have been very well covered. I realize these guys have been yapping about liberal/Negro media bias for decades, but I'm still a little surprised when they ignore evidence that appears their own screeds.

Yup, go right ahead thinking that. Here I will save you time in the future, Obama lost re-election not because he was worse than Carter and nearly destroyed the U.S, it was because "dat shit be racist,yo"

Did the republicans stop him from canceling his planned appearence today where he was going to outline more job killing government regulations to truckers and may have had to explain why the market crashed more as he spoke yesterday? Did the republicans stop him from canceling todays white house briefing so his party can hide after the stock market crashed and he avoid updating the world on his leadership or lack of it?

I've never understood the public's reticence about taking on looters/rioters with force. Especially once they start breaking into private homes, with people living there, all bets are off in my book. You no longer have a social justice gripe when you're breaking into private homes, and smashing the window on the local Foot Locker because you want to grab ten pairs of sneakers. And yes, there's the concern of "police violence creating even more rioters", but that's not what I'm talking about. I've been surprised in the past, when these situations arise, when I ask friends, why don't the police tell the looters to stop or they'll shoot? And friends say that shooting them wouldn't be right. Why? And again, we're not talking about peaceful protesters here, or some folks holding a sit in. We're talking setting things on fire, looting and burning down someone's livelihood, and breaking into your home in the middle of the night. Is it acceptable, morally, to use violence to stop that (regardless of whether it's wise, in terms of fomenting more violence)? What do you think?

Obama was over 45 minutes late for his statement about America's credit rating downgrade, after hiding from the media for an entire weekend. Considering that the speech contained, very literally, nothing he hasn’t said before, the delay is both puzzling and insulting. It’s odd he was willing to suffer the hit for making everyone wait to hear what amounted to a “greatest hits” tape from his debt ceiling performance.

You don’t really need to hear much more than the President’s opening line: “On Friday, we learned that the United States received a downgrade by one of the credit rating agencies, not so much because they doubt our ability to pay our debt if we make good decisions, but because after witnessing a month of wrangling over raising the debt ceiling, they doubted our political system’s ability to act.”

On the contrary, you won’t see any complaints about “a month of wrangling” in statements from S&P. Their downgrade action is entirely based on their doubt that the American government can achieve fiscal solvency.

“The markets, on the other hand, continue to believe our credit status is AAA,” said Obama… even as the markets dropped an incredible thirty points over the course of his ten-minute statement. To support Obama in the past, you had to abandon memory and common sense. To support him now, you have to ignore what’s happening right before your eyes.

From there, the President lurched into all the tired demands and assertions – you can’t really call them “arguments” – he’s been making for the past month. His focus-group-tested code phrase for tax increases, “balanced approach,” made an appearance. There were various references to problems that existed “when I took office” and the hard time America has been having for “the last two and a half years,” part of the continuing attempt to paint Obama as a helpless bystander who just arrived in the Oval Office yesterday, and can’t believe what George Bush left in the fridge.

He complained about “a debate where the threat of default was used as a bargaining chip.” The one and only politician who did that, repeatedly, was Barack Hussein Obama. He threatened default, and the collapse of supposedly rock-solid entitlements like Social Security, on a regular basis. He didn’t admit he’d been lying about the threat of default until his last press conference before Congress made a debt-ceiling deal without him.

Let’s revisit those remarks, shall we? President Barack Obama, speaking on July 29, 2011: “If we don’t come to an agreement, we could lose our country’s AAA credit rating… not because we didn’t have the capacity to pay our bills – we do – but because we didn’t have a AAA political system to match.” But now he’s back to whining about “default” being used as a bargaining chip by people other than himself.

It's good for a laugh. Another opinion piece in today's Journal cites a long list of commonalities between Jimmy Carter and Obama. It's sadly eerie, except for the suggestion that Obama will also get booted from the White House after one disastrous term.

BetterMan said...

The President tried to breathe more life into the moribund talking point that his economic failures are the result of global events beyond his control, such as turmoil in the Middle East and the tsunami in Japan.

“Our challenge is the need to tackle our deficits in the long term,” said the man who began the debt-ceiling debate by demanding trillions in new debt immediately, with absolutely no conditions. You’d almost think his Party wasn’t the gang that tabled the only realistic deficit-destroying proposal, the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act, without a proper vote.

“Last week, we reached an agreement that will make historic cuts to defense and domestic spending, but there’s not much further we can cut in either of those categories,” claimed Barack the Mad. You read that right. The man who blew government spending into the stratosphere thinks “there’s not much further we can cut” after a deal that merely slows the rate of spending increase by $2.4 trillion over a decade. We haven’t actually “cut” anything yet.

Besides this puny reduction in the rate of debt increase, Obama thinks the only two things we need to do are raise taxes on the rich, to “ask those who can afford it to pay their fair share,” and complete some “modest adjustments to health care programs like Medicare.” This is nothing he hasn’t been saying for weeks, just as the “hard pivot to job creation” he went on to extol involves things he’s been doing all along, like paying huge amounts of unemployment insurance and snipping a little off the Social Security taxes paid by workers.

Amusingly, Obama paused to compliment “Republicans and Democrats on the bipartisan fiscal commission that I set up” for their “good proposals,” all of which he completely ignored. He also expressed his hopes for the great deficit-fighting work of the “bipartisan Super Committee,” which he just sabotaged by making it politically impossible for committee Democrats to avoid demanding the kind of tax hikes they’ll never get. There was also a funny promise to “stay on it and get the job done” from a man whose days are entirely consumed with recreation and re-election fundraisers, to the point where he vanishes from public for days at a stretch.

From there on in, the statement was a lot of the usual boilerplate about how everyone else has to give up their politics, self-interest, sacred cows, and so forth. There was not a word of contrition, not a hint of responsibility personally accepted by the President, whose attitude can best be summarized as the frustration of a benevolent dictator forced to work in the messy kitchens of democracy.

After a while, Obama couldn’t help himself any more, and blasted out a geyser of new spending proposals, including his beloved “infrastructure” slush funds. It is truly a mystery why credit analysts think America will have trouble controlling those deficits!

The President also threw in some bromides about how he “still has faith in the American people.” That’s why he doesn’t think you can be trusted to manage your own health care! It’s also logically inconsistent with the rest of his argument. If our problem is not government spending – which he just said cannot be “cut” any further – but rather the greedy unwillingness of rich people to pay more in taxes, the only possible conclusion is that middle-class Americans are helpless babes who can’t survive without the titanic government programs Obama, and his predecessors, have put in place. The only reason we can’t cut spending is that America will starve without all that lovely government cheese. Our credit is in the tank because heartless millionaires won’t pay for it.

How can anyone possibly square that dismal, dead-end socialist mindset with “faith in the American people?”

Obama literally fled from the podium without taking any questions, or even looking back over his shoulder. Clearly he senses that what remains of the American people’s faith in him has eroded beyond recovery.

Dave Blount said...

You are right, Steve. It only appears that Obama is doing nothing about the economic crisis. Even as he plays golf and raises reelection funds, his army of bureauweenies is busily working away — to continue making the crisis worse:


"The White House on Tuesday will unveil the first-ever federal fuel efficiency standards for a range of heavy-duty trucks, a move the administration is casting as a key part of its plan to cut foreign oil imports and slash harmful air pollution.

The planned announcement [delayed for now] comes amid growing economic uncertainty and increasing jitters on Wall Street. The Obama administration is expected to argue that the standards will result in major benefits to the ailing economy."


Bwahaha! At least they’re keeping their sense of humor. If compelling upgrades that will cost up to $2,200 per truck without producing any wealth will help the economy Obama has crippled with his spending and regulations, why not also mandate a coating of gold leaf for all vehicles? That ought to lift us right back to prosperity.

Fuel efficiency standards are a tourniquet Obama and other leftists devoted to destroying the economy have been steadily tightening around the necks of the automotive industry and anyone who uses its products. The numbers they come up with are pulled out of the air, with no attempt to be reasonable:


"Late last month, Obama announced a plan to set an average standard of 54.5 miles per gallon by 2025 for cars and light-duty trucks. The standard builds on rules finalized last year for model-year 2012-2016 cars and light-duty trucks."


Try to imagine a “truck” that gets 54.5 miles per gallon. It will cost more than a Volt, look like golf cart, and endanger the lives of those foolish enough to take it out on the road.

Yet we’re asked to believe these authoritarian decrees will help the economy by allowing us to spend less on foreign oil, even as Obama keeps his boot firmly on the neck of domestic oil production.

Low gas mileage is not the problem. Our government is. We had better find a solution fast, or we will continue following the Soviet Union into oblivion.

This links indicates the Tea Party's next move against Obama, which is IMPEACHMENT! It's alright with me. He isn't doing a damn thing anyway.

Let's see: America's first downgrade ever; gridlock on the debt ceiling ever; first powerless Prez ever; highest unemployment of Blacks ever; the rise of the Tea Party; no compromise in Congress; disappearance of the middle class; total lack of Leadership.

Could this be an indication of an incompetent President because he doesn't know how to use power because he is a fearful bm? I think so.

Obama dilemma parallels Harold Washington's when he became Mayor of Chicago. But there is a big difference in the way the two leaders responded:

Harold politically out-maneuvered his enemies. He used his power as Mayor to push back. He surrounded himself with strong supportive 'new' people.

Obama did none of these things. He is, in reality, out of his depths, and he has shown the world that a bm should never be President of the USA...

Hillary should have been the one.

And there's no earthly reason to take the fantasies of such people seriously, unless you're a rightwing tool hoping to gin up a lot of race hatred in time for the next Presidential election.
I hate to be rude about it, but I'm sick of these BLEEPing peckerwoods doing old Lester Maddox routines and thinking no one will notice because their jackets have patched elbows and they're gesturing with a briar pipe. That goes for Glenn Reynolds and the rest of those high-end bottom-feeders who peddle this swill.

Maybe for christians Fed and State Civil Service is 'bloated overpay'...but for most of those who hold actual, valid credentials...Civil Service is about half to one-third of what the private sector offers...just in pay. Granted, there are almost no Koch-sucking positions in government. But when you are comparing jobs you should compare equivalents. It seems you are looking at your low-wage, dead-end. no-skill tempie job with SES. Most of those require a bit more than a Left Behind breathing degwee from high school.
Maybe if you had kept the union...you would make enough to leave Mom's basement, no?

Why shoore Goober, the Budget of the US is the 'exact same' as the budget of some working-class prole. Who paid cash for his trailer, his truck and his beer.
And the expenses are the 'exact same'. Government has unpaid child support...because you want her to pay fer leavin' you. You have multiple capital expenditures, payroll, and services. Government is only responsible for the greatest wite person ever to grace the Universe with his glorious presence. You are responsible for safe water, roads, police, SEPTA, recording legal docs, continuity of deeds, prisons, courts (oh...now I get why TaxBaggers hate gubmint sooooo much), utilities....etc.

Real leadership is more than talking and calling for things. It takes a while, but over time listeners begin to notice rote rhetoric, predictable patterns, empty words. An example:


Hobama: We didn’t need a rating agency to tell us that we need a balanced, long-term approach to deficit reduction. That was true last week. That was true last year. That was true the day I took office.

The day Obama took office, 931 of them ago. Subsequently, in his Monday remarks the president said this:


I intend to present my own recommendations over the coming weeks on how we should proceed.

Over the coming weeks? The need for a balanced, long-term approach was clear the day he took office $3+ trillion dollars ago and sometime soon he'll share his plans?

Obama is still saying, 'Yes, we can.' But he never explains why we haven't.

Then more solicitous empathizing:


The American people have been through so much over the last few years, dealing with the worst recession, the biggest financial crisis since the 1930s, and they’ve done it with grace. And they’re working so hard to raise their families, and all they ask is that we work just as hard, here in this town, to make their lives a little easier.

This from the guy who doesn't have a long-term deficit reduction plan 133 weeks in and just stepped from his helicopter after two days off in the Maryland mountains.

No wonder the markets plunged 200 more points as he talked.

Recently I went to a screening of the idiotic anti-energy movie "Gasland".

After the movie there was a Q&A session. Turns out a husband & wife (actual man and woman) were in the audience. They own farmland in the Pennsylvania area where all the gas drilling is underway.

They said they have a good relationship with the gas drilling company, which is using the horizontal drilling technique to drill under their land.

The extraction process is the "fracking" process that's got people wetting their pants.

They told me they get a royalty of $14 per acre, per day, plus some additional cash when gas is extracted.

They also said the gas company rebuilt all the crumbling roads in their area. They said the work was done fast, done well, and done without government help.

In other words, a lot of "infra-structure" projects would go from planning to completion in a hurry if our Idiot-in-Chief let the oil & gas companies get to work.

Yeah, Obama wants trucks to go 50miles on a gallon of gas or diesel fuel.

Fat chance.

The only outcome of building trucks that have too little power to haul their loads is an outcome that creates a stronger market for used vehicles that are up to the task.

After voters boot him from office, he'll begin the process of becoming a bitter old man like Jimmy Carter.

Most likely he'll handle his life as the ex-pres somewhat like Reverend Wright who has become more and more critical of America since he left his church.

If Wright were less well known, he clearly would have been more public about his love for the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan.

Mr. Field, FYI, even though you probably haven't read one of my comments or suggestions to you in the previous threads regarding market conditions and what to expect. You don't have to suffer so much, Mr Field.

Anyway, here's some valuable info for you:

Gold rises to record ahead of Fed meeting
1:35 pm ET 08/09/2011 - MarketWatch Databased News

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Gold prices traded at a record Tuesday, slicing through the $1,750-an-ounce milestone as a massive selloff in global stock markets drew safety-seeking investors to the metal.

Gold futures for delivery in December added $30.80, or 1.8%, to $1,744.20 an ounce on the Comex division of the New York Mercantile Exchange.

The contract traded as high as $1,782.50 an ounce, an intraday record for the metal. Gold has gained more than 20% so far this year, including a gain of 5% this week.

"I suspect gold is going to keep going, I can't come up with any roadblocks when it comes to gold pushing foward," said Matt Zeman, head trader and strategist at Kingsview Financial in Chicago. "Volatility is here to stay."

Any corrections are likely to be shallow, shaving $40 to $50 off prices and based solely on profit-taking, he added.

"At this rate, we can see $1,800, $1,850 (an ounce) in a matter of weeks," Zeman said.

The U.S. credit downgrade, coming so close on the heels of the debt-ceiling crisis, has left investors searching for a safe haven and choosing gold, HSBC analyst James Steel wrote in a report to clients, referring to Standard & Poor's decision to downgrade U.S. debt late last week to AA+ from AAA.

Gold's record run pushed it past platinum, a rarer, harder-to-mine precious metal that traditionally trades at a premium to gold.

Gold and platinum futures prices reached parity on Monday as well, as gold continued to be one of the few defensive assets left standing.

Gold zooms past platinum

Platinum for October delivery gained $31.50, or 1.8%, to $1,755 an ounce. It earlier traded as high as $1,756.80 an ounce.

Despite being a precious metal, most demand for platinum comes from industrial uses, mainly as a key element in auto catalytic converters.

Unlike gold, mined in several different countries, 80% of the world's platinum comes from South Africa, where aging mines have faced labor strife and power outages, among other difficulties.

Before Monday and Tuesday, the last time the metals had reached parity was December 2008. But platinum quickly regained the upper hand shortly after.

"I don't think it is going to be the case this time around," said Rohit Savant, a platinum and palladium analyst at CPM Group in New York. Back in 2008, platinum's comeback was mainly on improvement in car sales from very low levels, he said.

With fear of a recession dominating markets, "we're likely to see gold trading at a premium until you see an improvement in economic conditions," Savant said.

The broader suite of metals futures tracked gold higher, with silver the lone exception. September silver declined $1.52, or 3.9%, to $37.84 an ounce.

The U.S. Federal Open Market Committee is scheduled to meet Tuesday to decide on its monetary policy, amid a debate over whether weakening economic indicators will force its hand in launching a fresh round of monetary easing. That possibility was lending some support to metals."

Mr. Field, remember me telling you about the 'bounce' before the sharp reversal down? Well, the bounce and reversal is today and tomorrow. Take care, brother.

Peak Oil?

More nonsense from screwballs.

To reach Peak Oil the world would have to drill into EVERY known oilfield and begin to extract oil at the maximum rate technology permits.

Since vast areas of oil-rich territory are currently untouched by oil companies and many existing oil fields are run by morons who deliberately keep production at a low level, we have no idea how much oil we could pump if all the barriers were removed.

But I have no doubt we could double today's daily production of about 85 million barrels.

Without oil there will be no airplanes. No airlines.

When oil becomes as expensive as Al Gore dreams, airlines will stop flying because it will cost too much to fuel the plane.

Then, you wail about government employees being paid off borrowed money. Gee, maybe if the bushWars were done...and the bush zero-taxes for the rich ended...and we raised revenues...we would not need to borrow. And, unlike Goober budgets, most governments can't walk away from obligations. PA has a law that means if you do the work...you MUST be paid. The giggling wankers in the 1990s PA Lege thought it was hi-larious to refuse to pay PA Civil Service workers...and to watch their suffering. Well, until it became clear that the Lege was personally responsible and could be sued.
You might want to Google your State, County and Local employment data to see how much of that eveel gubmint puts into your local economy. While it is heroically brave for a $14K/year nobody to want the nasty icky awful terrible amoral gubmint jobs to magickally vanish...it is a different tale when those Civil Service employees aren't purchasing. Ask the Harrisburg business community what they thought of the gleeful morons.

SEALs? Judges? FBI? DEA? CDC? ATSDR? FAA?

Let's see. A long time ago the decision was made to invest all miiltary power in our government. We granted local governments the power to handle policing and the court system.

And we also decided it was best to make the Post Office a government agency.

For a long time, Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae were government agencies. Then, in a shift by the government, they were semi-privatized while retaining their government backing. Nice deal.

As we have learned, in almost every case, when private industry enters an industry, it performs better than the government.

UPS and FedEx have made mince-meat out of the Post Office. At the same time, e-mail is cutting the heart out of first-class mail.

Al that's left is junk mail. Great, isn't? The mailman brings stacks of junk mail to your home, you look at one or two items then throw out the pile, which is carted off by the one-day-every-two-weeks city garbage guy who collects the recyclable stuff.

A government worker brings the garbage to your home and another government worker hauls it away. It's wonderfully efficient.

@Steve -good self correction on the S&P rating. It does look like a game is being played.

BTW unemployment has been on the rise for quite some time now. And yes in your more favored administration. Times are hard all over Steve and the Dems are saving the butts of the rich!

And the gov't statistics are misleading. Notice how the numbers always manage to stay just below 10percent? The reality is that nearly 15 percent or maybe more of our citizens are unemployed. And you know what its like in the black community.

@Sharon- you nailed it early on, you can say it again, full employment is not a priority of capitalism, in fact a bit of unemployment is good for business, it helps keep the other workers in mind.

@Granny- you are right Granny though some clueless folks actually believe that wealth is created out of some kind of vacum with no correlation to underpaid labor and subtle and not so subtle theivery, its not true. The rich got most of their money by underpaying and overworking, and by overcharging workers, which keeps them poor.

@Mold- great commentary post! Clearly some truth to racial misunderstandings and why they are promoted.

milton friedman said...

Peak Oil is exactly what I said it is.

It is the maximum rate of oil production of which the oil industry is capable.

We are nowhere close to the maximum, and, in fact, we do not know how large it would be for the simple reason that we will never tap all the known reserves at the same time.

Eventually we will tap ANWR. Eventually Brazil will tap its major offshore find.

But as long as known reserves remain untouched, we are operating at well below Peak Oil.

Then there are the reserves we haven't found -- yet. In deep water. Or deep below mountain ranges.

No one knows the size of the reserves in Saudi Arabia because they have not been measured in 40 years.

Full employment is fine..as all those workers are well-paid and spend more on what you make/sell. It is bad because they don't have to tolerate idiocy. Or mandatory prayer meetings. Or speed-ups. And all that money is theirs.
Look at how st reagan and bush loved the pilfering of retirements...essentially deferred income.

Anon 4:18 I read that HuffPost article you referenced. Very good info. Thanks.I knew most of that already except I didn't know that it was that easy to hide money in Panama.

The Panama tax dodge sure makes it look like there are some fake moves being put on by the White House.

Here is an interesting excerpt from that article:

"While the IRS is starved for information on U.S. individuals hiding money in Panama, it has the opposite problem among U.S. corporations. In 2008, the Government Accountability Office issued a report noting that 17 of the 100 largest American companies were operating a total of 42 subsidiaries in Panama, suggesting that these subsidiaries could be used to help firms skimp on their U.S. tax bills.

But while the IRS knows that firms are operating in Panama, it doesn't have the resources to investigate or prove that the offshore activities of U.S. companies are devoid of economic substance other than tax-dodging. While 17 of the 100 largest corporations were operating Panamanian subsidiaries, a total of 83 were operating sub-companies in nations the GAO labeled as tax havens, with some corporations using dozens of different subsidiaries."

What I learned from my mother:

Nine-Year-Old Beaten By Mother

On Sunday morning, police received an anonymous call about a child being assaulted at an apartment on Lefferts Place.

Upon arriving, officers could hear the sound of a woman beating her daughter with a belt.

The 9-year-old girl was found to have numerous bruises about her body, including her left arm, both inner thighs and back.

The girl was sent to Brooklyn Hospital. The Administration of Children’s Services later released the girl to the custody of a grandmother.

Paul Ben:

With all due respect. You must be new on this blog because I'm not in the habit of using anyone's talking points. Now, I might not be the brightest bulb on this blog because I could go down the list of people on here who I feel are way sharper than me, but I do have a brain that functions independently and critically.

Anyone on here including those who may not like me know that I do not need help from anyone to tell me what to say or think. I might be getting old, but the wheels in my mind haven't slowed down a bit and my discernment is keen. I call it like I see it and in plain old simple terms that anyone can understand what I'm saying and sometimes I have a gifted ability to call what is up ahead even before it happens.

BTW, are you sure and confidently certain that that I am poor and easily brainwashed?

Sometimes too much power is not a good thing because people tend to go overboard and get too big-headed, selfish, and arrogant with it. A balance in power is always better because it keeps people grounded. Nevertheless, it is not the Democrats who want sole power, it is the Republicans and they do not want to share in power either. Nope, they want to dictate! That's why they are going through the trouble of trying to unlevel the voters playing field. Funny how the revolution was to get from under the King's dictorial power and gain freedom, but now the Republicans want to become the dictators.

As If We Didn't Know said...

London is burning:

What colour is Mark Duggan? Mark Duggan is the man who was shot dead by the police on Thursday in Tottenham.

The Tottenham riots last night were sparked when people protested his death. This morning, I first heard of the riots on the radio, then on the television.

I read articles on the internet. But oddly, no one would say what colour Mark Duggan was. No one would say the unsayable, that the rioters were, I suspect on the whole, black. Then, finally, Toby Young’s Telegraph blog post on the riots was published.

Is Toby Young the only journalist out there who will dare say that these riots are about race?

Still, one paper did carry a photo of Mr Duggan. When I saw the photo, it confirmed what I knew instinctively: black youths once again have set London alight.

Some of the black kids I used to teach will tell you that the riots are absolutely justified. A number of adults would agree with them. Everywhere I read that the protest was understandable because “people are very angry”.

I’d like to know what they’re angry about. Mark Duggan is dead. He was shot by the police in a shootout.

Duggan was in a minicab and shots were fired from both the cab and the police elsewhere. A police officer was hurt in the incident and a bullet was found lodged in a police radio.

Either Duggan was shooting at the police or the driver of the minicab was. Either Duggan was in the wrong place at the wrong time and his death is a terrible tragedy – he was caught in the crossfire – or he shot at the police and the police defended themselves.

Whatever the explanation, the police did not kill this man in cold blood.

Who Knew said...

London is still on fire:

Yet, a friend of Duggan who gave her name as Niki, 53, said marchers had wanted “justice for the family” and “something had to be done”.

She said some of them lay in the road to make their point. “They’re making their presence known because people are not happy. This guy was not violent.

Yes, he was involved in things but he was not an aggressive person. He had never hurt anyone.”

I wonder what “involved in things” means? I also wonder whether the police officer who was hurt at the scene believes Mark Duggan never hurt anyone.

“Something had to be done”? She makes it sound as if the police are killing black people every other weekend and finally someone decided to take a stand.

At school I remember watching a presentation given to the kids by Trident, the Metropolitan Police Service unit set up to investigate and inform communities of gun crime in London’s black community.

I didn’t know what Trident was then, and it struck me that all of the photos of people shot (the idea was to scare the kids) were black. So at the end, I approached one of the policemen and asked him what percentage of those involved in gun crime were black.

I kid you not, but my question made this thirty-something white man who was, after all, trained to deal with the black community and its issues, turn pink.

He explained that about 80 per cent of gun crime took place in the black community.

I smiled uncomfortably. But no, he said, it was worse than that.

Then he told me that 80 per cent was black on black gun crime, and that of the remaining 20 per cent about 75 per cent involved at least one black person: black shooting white, or white shooting black.

I pushed to know more. While he kept saying his stats were crude and he didn’t have scientific numbers, on the whole the whites who were involved in these shootings tended to be from Eastern Europe.

Was any of this ever mentioned in their presentation? Of course not.

Just like the news about the Tottenham riots doesn’t mention race either.

Problems cannot be addressed unless people are willing to tell the truth. As with so many other things in this country, we stick our heads in the sand and refuse to speak out about it.

IDK why everyone's 'surprised' about the London Black uprisings. With all the talk of an 'enlightened' Europe -those mofos are about 20-30 years behind us in race relations.

And give the new found love of 'austerity' all over the EU (with the exception of Germany and few other smaller nations), its no surprise there's a riot going on.

The question is, when will American 'rise up'***?


*** And by rise up, I mean peacefully and through the ballot. Riots do little to solve anything.

Also, you can't produce creeps like Thatcher and Murdoch (I know he's an Aussie, but he made his big money in the UK) and not have an undercurrent of right wing nastiness.

And do what exactly? demand more free stuff? Enslave whites to work for you to compensate for your cultural and living deficiencies? What exactly are you going to rise up for? we are broke there may very well be no more handouts at this rate. Just make sure like the Poofters in England you are admiring you don't rise up and meet Johhny Glock and Mr Smith and Wesson, seems like it is about time people started using the intellectual advantage offered by advanced cultures with superior intellects against savages.

Why do Africans everywhere suck the blood of everyone else, famine relief for African nations 500+million and counting, why are Africa, Haiti, US blacks always needing handouts? Why? Why are there no African nations ever who can give a handout or even support themselves?

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

These people kill me when they seem to think that after they brought a gun, that the gun manufacturers stop making them.

And speaking of handouts, rich whites have been on the receiving end of handouts since this country began. They accepted handouts from the Native Americans and if it wasn't for the Native Americans they would have died of starvation. To show their gratitude, they anniliated the Native Americans. And talk about barbarian and savage, slavery in this country topped the cake. Again, whites accepted handouts because they sure did not build this country with their own labor.

Nope! And no one has been able to top handouts that the rich and corporation have gotten through Corporate Welfare. I mean they have caused this country to go nearly bankrupt with all the handouts they've received.

It amazes me how they like to boast about America being superior to Africa, but yet we have homeless people living under freeways and eating out of garbage cans. The famine has been here in America since Republicans took office. That's when the homeless population really started to swell. So, my question to you is why do rich whites suck the blood and life out of every country they set foot on?

Can't say that I blame some of those Asian countries and others for not wanting you in their country. Not the way, y'all kill, steal, and destroy everywhere you go, you really can't blame them for feeling the way they do.

The Shoeshine boy bubble burst indicator for Gold:

"The story of how Joe Kennedy avoided ruin in the 1929 stock market crash is a Wall Street legend. While getting his shoes shined, Kennedy’s shoeshine boy started giving him advice on what stocks to buy. At that very moment Kennedy claims he had an epiphany, realizing that it must be time to sell. After tipping the bootblack, Kennedy reportedly hurried away and sold all of his stock holdings just in time to avoid the carnage of the 1929 stock market crash.

Similarly, Bernard Baruch, the legendary Wall Street trader, famously wrote of the zeitgeist as it manifested in the common man at the height of the 1929 bubble:

“Taxi drivers told you what to buy. The shoeshine boy could give you a summary of the day’s financial news as he worked with rag and polish. An old beggar who regularly patrolled the street in front of my office now gave me tips and, I suppose, spent the money I and others gave him in the market. My cook had a brokerage account and followed the ticker closely. Her paper profits were quickly blown away in the gale of 1929.”

Shoeshine boys (taxi drivers, waiters, etc.) giving stock market advice has become a Wall Street metaphor for prototypical behavior at the top of financial markets bubbles.

What Are the Shoeshine Boys Saying About Gold These Days?

Just in the past week, several friends have forwarded the following anecdotal reports to me.

1. A plumber working under a sink asked whether he should put all his retirement money in gold.

2. A taxi driver, making the rounds, asked his passenger how he could invest in gold.

3. An auto mechanic asked a friend what he thought about gold while he was working under the hood.

The people that reported these incidents to me are all investment advisors. Their take on these incidents was that these were potential signals of a top in gold. The indecisive action in gold last week in the midst of panic seemed to reinforce this hypothesis in their minds.

However, I think it would be premature to say that these incidents qualify as sell signals as I interpret the “shoeshine boy indicator.”

A Specification of the Shoeshine Boy Indicator

Below is my interpretation of how to specify the famous “shoeshine boy indicator.” The requirements of this indicator are met when the following two conditions are in place:

1. The “shoeshine” boy is not merely asking questions about speculating in a given asset or even just reporting about having made an investment in such an asset. This indicator is triggered when the “shoeshine boy” states that he has been investing in this asset class for some time and enthusiastically brags that he has made LOTS of money doing so.

2. The “shoeshine” boy is not merely asking questions about or reporting having made investments in a particular asset class. He is actively and enthusiastically recommending and promoting investments in said asset class, saying things such as “you are a fool if you do not do it.”

In sum, the shoeshine boy indicator flashes a “sell” when the protagonist both indicates that he is an experienced investor that has made money for quite a while in the given asset class and simultaneously proselytizes about the virtues of investing that asset class as a “sure thing.”

My read is that the “shoeshine boy indicator” has not been triggered yet with respect to gold. The ”shoeshine boys” in the recent examples given are still just asking questions and/or barely getting their feet wet in the world of gold speculation.

And by the way, “shoeshine boys” are not just blue-collar folks. Indeed, I think that one of the most definitive trigger events will be when university professors -- a class of individuals that previously would have be ashamed to even talk about gold in decent company -- start singing the praises of gold. Again, we are not there yet. Today, gold pundits are still considered a disreputable bunch within academic circles."

So why aren't you out there protesting that homeless americans get help instead of sending the money to africans? You are american aren't you? You don't think the white majority can continue to support black here and all over the world do you? They have always been there and after this help will always be there, history proves that is a fact, they will never get on "thr feet" they don't know how. Maybe you can go over there and lead them and teach them how to shoot from those gun manufacturers you bought a gun from in order to riot and demand whitey take care of you or you will kill him.

"Field, I thought you said, "This is a commercial free blog.

I know Granny, but these folks are sneaky.

GrannyStandingforTruth said...

Excuse me, but what makes you think that I've been sending money to Africa? Do you know this for sure or are you just taking a little bit too much upon yourself again and spouting off those false assumptions again. I don't remember showing you my checking account book or anybody else for that fact. My bank book is my private and personal business. Do you know something I don't know because I don't recall writing a check to Africa?

However, since you are so concerned and seem to invest so much time and energy into discussing Africa, looks like you would put your money where your mouth is and send a check to Africa. Oh, I forgot, you just like to badmouth people of different skin colors and threaten the use of guns.

Charity starts at home and spreads abroad and there are people right here in America that need help. And in case you did not know it, there are many many homeless people who are white as well. In addition, many of those in the military who fought in behalf of this country are returning to America homeless. That's the gratitude that is being shown for their service to our country. Of course, you wouldn't care about that because you are blinded by greed and selfishness.

Instead of asking me am I American you should be asking yourself that question because you don't give the impression that you care about America or Americans, except for how much money you can make and hoard.
