FACES OF QE


Chances are that many of you never come into close contact with the impact of QE on the most vulnerable of not only our society but the global society that it impacts. Putting a picture up does not really do it justice. I could have selected more graphic examples to show you but then does it really matter? Smiling, bright faces with so much potential but their future hinges on something that we take for granted...nourishment. We have gorged ourselves on plentiful, relatively cheap food. Our current attempts to reflate a staggering debt they we have binged on is dragging down the poorest across the world. This will not end well for anyone. This is how REAL wars begin. Not faux wars like we have been creating in the name of patriotism. Sure...if you bought into the Cheney doctrine that we deserve to do anything the biggest bully on the block desires to do without regard to any laws....international or ortherwise then perhaps we can make a case for our continued interventions. Just one problem....we can't pay for it any longer. That's how empires end. That is how we are going to end. Its inevitable and there is nothing we can do to change that. Whether you can make a case that everything we did over the last 20 years or more with our foreign interventions to support our Multinational corporatocracy was justified or not just really doesn't matter. You only need to do your math. You say you don't understand. You say its the Unions. You say its Social Security. You say its a bloated Federal bureaucracy. Well perhaps there is a modicum of truth to elements of all of that. Certainly abuses took place in all of those. But the real expense that KILLED us. REALLY KILLED us was the false reality created that we were under constant Attack with fear driving the incredible budget the military industrial complex sucked from the future of this country. Eisenhower warned us of this. It was breathtaking that a president would end his tenure with that warning yet NO ONE paid a bit of attention to it. The banker owned media buried it file Z and labeled Ike a moron.

The 60s ushered in a "new beginning" and a dashing new President with Ike dissappearing into the country club set and hole 19s. Control of all information by the bankers was already well established and Ike's warning was a mere formality to deep six.

Soon we were immersed in a new "war"....Vietnam. WWII...Korea...all history. Something new happened with Vietnam. The public became disenchanted with these forays into resource rich developing nations that they knew little about. Especially when 56 thousand boys come home in body bags. The boyz in control needed to modify their plans. First up was to create their own Centurions. So the "All Volunteer" army was created. After all if you had a volunteer army you didn't have anyone crying about getting "drafted" against their will. Not everyone could avoid the draft like Cheney, Pearl, Wolfowitz, Rumsfeld, Bush and others did. Of course you had to make sure there were outstanding candidates so amplifying patriotism and creating scholarship programs for military service provided an increasingly impressive pool of soldiers. As the middle class came under increasing economic pressure the military became even more impressive. Ouila....you had the Centurions that had been planned.

Alas just as in Rome all empires will come to an end and so will ours. Unfortunately so will the rest of us living here. At least in terms of our current level of oppulence. Will we create a new World war with our disruption of a fragile World population living off of dwindling resources. Will our fight to remain the bloated bully on the block create a conflagration of biblical proportions? I don't have any idea. I do know that trouble is ahead and you better be prepared.

We're traders here and we're going to use this forum to try and bring information forward that hopefully will make you money or help protect you. Keep stacking the physical gold and silver. Keep storing the food.

  3. great article on Paul demonstrating the manipulation by the Power on the sheep. Also note how GDX has been a BIG factor in knocking out the miners and aiding the Hedges short. Just BRILLIANT how they can take out the investors money from the miners... DON'T invest in the etfs is the lesson....You are cutting your own throat

  5. How come none of you did not bring one of the largest and best performing silver miners in the world which is PAAS, since August 9th which the price hit $26, short covering has been underway, look at their earnings, dividend,,etc.

  7. kli,

    Shorts were getting too arrogant when PAAS hit $26 from high of 40s and needed a lesson from some one as far as humility is concerned, some of the hedge funds got traped shorting at 26, those basstids are not the only ones with deep pocket and power who can play this game, some one out there watching and creating leverage, heheeeeeeeeeeee!

  9. I went shopping at local safeway on Sat., price of food is hurting seniors and the poor head on...I was behind older chinese gentleman and it pained me to see what he had to pay for the little he bought. These pigmen are destroyers of hope along with their savings...I look forward to their downfall...hopefully in my lifetime...

  10. the game played at the level I, joe , red et al ...are talking about is not primarily driven by greed chuck......you must understand the underlying motivation to understand WHY they have existed for hundreds of years. If it were primarily greed they would have been wiped out long ago. They are ingenious and it is about POWER and CONTROL....Just look around the world....heheheh...we still have military bases in Japan and Germany.....66 YEARS!!!! and they are our "allies" hehehheheheheehehehehhe

  11. right now the game is CONfidence and fear.....raise one lower the other....just not in a "straight line" hehehehhehe

  12. Chuck,

    You are correct, do not lose hope since in nature it's not the time that has real value, it's the process and karma. It always evens out at the end and it's not important whether you live long enough to see it or not, reap what one sows. Everything in its due time. There is always good out there fighting as well. Do what you can and help based on your capabilities. This world is not about happiness, it's about struggle , not illusion. Choices, remember and each choice requires sacrifices. Everything in nature is connected, one way or the other.

  13. NKTR having another strong day so far. Now above its 20 day ema. Lots of room to run on the RSI.

    Just to add to the above discussion, one of my 1st jobs was at a clothing store that was near a grocery store in a poor part of town. It was not unusual to see an elderly couple with nothing but dog or cat food in their cart. It saddens me to know that those days are coming again.

  14. All,

    Take a look at JBLU, trading below the book value of 5.70 and below 50 & 200ma. I just checked the 2008/2009 market crash and it was trading almost where it is now, any where between 3.50 and current price seems good risk/reward.

  18. kli,

    Either fix the darn problem for Jim or hire some one to fix it for him, meanwhile he should come to your house and post using your computer at home. Choices, choices, choices. In life people do not have a choice as far as cards that are dealt to, the choice comes into picture on how to deal and adjust to the cards dealt afterwards.
