I think we have a little problem here...

US money supply plunges at 1930s pace as Obama eyes fresh stimulus


The M3 money supply in the United States is contracting at an accelerating rate that now matches the average decline seen from 1929 to 1933, despite near zero interest rates and the biggest fiscal blitz in history.

The stock of money fell from $14.2 trillion to $13.9 trillion in the three months to April, amounting to an annual rate of contraction of 9.6pc. The assets of insitutional money market funds fell at a 37pc rate, the sharpest drop ever.


DEFLATION HERE WE GO. Good. I love deflation.

In other news, Japan exports up 40% compared to last year... nice. Most of it is due to China's demand...

Stocks Set For Rebound


Wall Street was able to make up for most of its early losses during trading Tuesday. Only the S&P 500 actually finished higher at the closing bell (0.04 percent, 0.38 points). Both the NASDAQ (0.12 percent, 2.80 points) and the Dow Jones (0.23 percent, 22.82 points) finished with losses, but the daily progression out of a deep early hole led to trading momentum Wednesday.

Stocks opened with gains in the morning Wednesday, surging on the optimism of a strong comeback yesterday.

One factor that could help the morning surge survive throughout the day is news that durable goods orders in the U.S. rose in April for the fourth time in five months.

According to Bloomberg News, orders rose by 2.9 percent for so-called “durable goods”, which are meant to last at least three years. These products are, for the most part, cars, machinery, airplanes, and other highly manufactured goods. Luckily for the United States, these durable goods remain one of the few things we produce in our economy. An increase in durable goods sales equates to an increase in manufacturing output and export.

The Real Reason Behind China's Trade Surplus


In an interview with CNBC- Asia Pacific, AAM Executive Director Scott Paul outlined the real reason behind China’s monstrous trade surplus. China’s currency is suspected to be undervalued by as much as 40 percent, making U.S. goods imported into the country artificially inexpensive.

“The fastest growing trade deficits we have with China are in high-tech goods,” said Paul, in addition to the fact that Chinese subsidization has made it difficult for American tech companies trying to compete in China’s domestic market.

“We can compete with China when it comes to labor, but we can’t compete with those kind of subsidies,” he said.

And Even with faced with that fact China buy more from Asia than the US

Congress looking to close loopholes from multinationals that are taking away billions of dollars on taxes


U.S. Multinationals Trying to Defeat Jobs Package,

American multinational corporations, fearful of losing lucrative tax loopholes that allow them to avoid paying taxes on income overseas, are working behind the scenes to defeat a nearly $200 billion jobs package that includes over three-dozen popular tax breaks to help American businesses and individuals.

The legislation, American Jobs and Closing Loopholes Act of 2010, which the House could take up as early as Wednesday, would raise $14.5 billion over the next decade by cracking down on six tax schemes multinational corporations use to skirt their U.S. tax obligations, including claiming foreign tax credits for income they have not actually paid taxes on, according to The Wall Street Journal.

If everyone paid back his debt, the system would collapse

This system works only as long as there is debt. This "debt situation" produces "relationships" (slavery).

Yes but this means that Greece will never be able to fix their deficit, meaning they will continue to increase their national deficit in order to survive as a nation and that means also that they will continue to borrow, not like Portugal, Spain and the US that even with their debt they still can increase taxes and close loopholes to reduce the national deficits.

Yes! Exactly!

This way, whatever they want to do it has to be "allowed".

If there is no "debt situation" then we arrive to the Age of Conquest (war).

This is typical: people believe they receive their salary (in return to how much their work is worth) but in truth they receive "allowance".

Ask your husband how he explains that the value of his work suddenly lost 25%.

Hon, this past tax year my husband pay over 22 thousand dollars on taxes, (I don't work) so all that income came from his retirement alone, meaning he got a retirement to pay taxes and a full time job to pay for our standards of living.

Yes we know how taxes are drilling a hole in our pockets.

Still we are not even on the top earners by middle class medium at all.

And some people think that those that pay taxes own to those that pay none.

Get ready for 2011 because tax increasing are coming our way due to the tax bill going on in congress, while the fat rats in corporate America have millions to blow away for concessions we the regular tax payer Joe have none

The HCR is starting to look very expensive, don't forget the baby boomers joining Medicare and SS ranks in very great numbers.

Rising number of the unemployed is exactly "creation" of unemployed people, which means it is a creation of cheap labor.

This is typical pornography - because there is more unemployment there is actually more need for employment!

It is totally intended and under control!

The government is targeting also private jobs, while my husband works for a private company, (very profitable company on the top three defense contract) they want my husband's job to now be insourced and become a civil service job, with a cut.

Now how can that be an advancement in our medium income? is work the same jobs with less income and this is going on, in many of the contracting jobs in nation.

I know how that is.. my Fiance is the bread winner while I do weird side jobs (truly, some of them are weird) .. She payed more in taxes than I made last year (shes a nurse) .. why oh why do people living together as adults not get the same tax benefits of married people?? *sigh* .. one more year.. my only job prospect right now is to go back to working for a financial firm, which has been on the table for about 3 and a half months now.. I can't decide what's worse.. a destroyed ego and pride by no longer making the money and having to do weird side jobs, or selling my soul and working for a financial firm? Eventually I will probably have to sell my soul, as I'll have nothing else.. I just got a sentence from the courts that I can't even pay.. a parking ticket, I wrote "F** you" on it and mailed it back, and they mailed me back a sentence/ruling for double the original ticket lol. Made my morning..

Sorry for laughing at the parking ticket ordeal, you know when we are frustrated we do the silliest things.


I have done that too but back in the days when we were not doing that good and I had credit card bills to pay.


But that is over and done with.


Now is taxes, TAXES and more TAXES.


My advise to you is sell your soul and make it worth it, do what ever you can to get even and get back your money, invest and do what the big rats do, make lots and lots of money

Ahh.. the dilemmas in life..

When we are children we are taught that we can be what ever we want to be.. to follow your dreams .. yadda yadda, all that bs.. the priest would tell you wait for God to give you your calling.. But you venture into this perverse World you find that you are either a commander or slave.. you will either work for someone else and deem it worth while and a truly noble objective, a life well spent. Or you create the idea, steal the idea, are given the idea or so forth and people work for you.. Some people strive for their small slice of paradise by owning their own company or what ever.. but I find to truly do what you want to do .. you more often than not need money to do it. So we chase dollars up hill all our lives in the hopes that at some point hopefully by the time we are 60 we can enjoy our hard labor. To me, seeing the World seems more fun to do when your young, not old..

But what ever.. for now I'm actually pretty content to random crap, I have my guitar, my beer, and my garden. More often than not our small creature comforts are worth more to us than our shiny car and big house with our plasma tv's and high tech this, state of the art that, what ever..

Hon, when you can not beat "them" you as well "join" them, as you get older you will see the wisdom on this . . .

Is nothing worst than looking back at some point in your life and think "what I could have done to make it better".

We all go through certain stages in life, my husband and I now is trying to have something worthwhile for our "later days", as that time is approaching very fast . . . but the baby boomers will beat us first so what will be let for us . . .

Now the stock market dropped below 10k, we are on the brink of a major war, Europe is bankrupt, and the stock market decides to rebound today.

This market is rigged, there is no logical reason for a market rebound of 200 points today.

They are practicing...

They can do that with wars, too.

They have built China and India ("lets leave aside the question of human rights" and "lets do some business instead" - Hilary). Now, China is a sample, and the rest of the world has to be leveled down to China's (and Indian) standards (that is globalization).

Good part of Asia is turned into a war zone (we'll see if Iran can escape the destiny of Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan).

Hilary Clinton blamed Pakistani government for "not taxing enough - in America, we tax everything"!

It is all about taxing. They create a problem, they then create a new "bill" and the bill must be paid. Bailout of big banks, health care, ecological disasters, natural disasters, immigration disaster, all at once falling on our heads, and the solution is - taxing.

Basically, what they are doing with markets is a good sign that economy doesn't function at all, it is broken, it is debased, it is dispersed, there is no more indications of what will or should happen next, nobody is capable of planning development, everything is disconnected...

The economic system as we knew it (however idealistic it was) doesn't exist any more.

Globalization leaves a lot of "empty lots" to pile up garbage. The emerging economy will be economy of basic needs and black markets (for many of us).

Look at the war which is going on right now in Jamaica. Drugs are an idealistic means of satisfying one's needs. This one is very indicative of what is coming next (together with Mexico and some other places)...

Look at this:

Arizona, a rogue state at war

www.cnn.com...

This is not a joke, or an unfounded speculation:



In a letter to President Obama, Brewer asked that the National Guard reallocate reconnaissance helicopters and robotic surveillance craft to the "border states" to prevent illegal immigration. The governor also requested the deployment of unmanned drones, including possibly the Predator drones used in Iraq and Afghanistan. In fact, in her letter, Brewer even mentioned those foreign wars as examples of where the drones have been effective.


In the end, we are all going to be "dronned"


And what's all this got to do with markets, or vice versus, can you see all this going on in the markets? Nope. But THAT is indicative!

Maybe you can smell the globalist truth from this passage of the above article:




After all, like the United States, Arizona is currently involved in two wars. There's the hypocritical war against the very illegal immigrants that the state has spent the past 15 years providing with gainful employment by allowing them to do jobs that Arizonans wouldn't do. And then there's the rhetorical war with the Obama administration, which Arizona wants to portray as negligent in stopping illegal immigration, which forced Arizonans to take matters into their own hands.



Arizona is in the way of this unholy globalist agenda. All truth is in this passage, only the "culprit" is projected on the one who (for now) got out of their too often slippery hands...




The argument that the federal government isn't actively engaged in border enforcement is both dishonest and reckless.





Obama just ordered 1.200 troops to Mexican border
In a few months there will be probably many many more.

He is actually behind it?




US President Barack Obama has defended his government's handling of the huge oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


news.bbc.co.uk...

See how BBC presents it...






Speaking at the White House, President Obama vowed to hold BP accountable for the "horrific disaster".

He stressed that his administration, and not oil company BP, was in charge.


Ambivalent message. In charge of "what"?




But he admitted the government did not have the technology to deal with the damaged oil well


The one who has technology is in charge...
