CNBC, Sept 30
www.cnbc.com...

When it comes to U.S. deficit reduction, many investors would rather Congress "kick the can down the road" again than let 2013 start with a blast of fiscal austerity not seen since the Vietnam War.
While hardly optimal, a temporary deal that prevents a plunge over the "fiscal cliff" would stave off recession and buy time for investors to tweak their portfolios.


Prediction market Intrade suggests a three-in-four chance the November election results in more divided government, with President Barack Obama winning a second term but Republicans in partial or total control of Congress. Divided government may make the path to a solution more difficult as both sides dig in their heels.
........."I think after the election and before Christmas, when discussions might be most polarized and feverish, is the most likely time you'll see doubts in the markets and an extra risk premium demanded to hold U.S. assets," said Alan Wilde, who helps oversee $50 billion at Baring Asset Management.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

In other words gutting away job creation in order to save money so the Fed can keep bailing out Wall street( Q3) , while Obamacare will impose more taxation (mandated taxes) on an already over taxed nation with a growing Welfare state.

Yeah, Merry Christmas indeed.

As an American I am very upset over QE 3. Your posts above are so correct, Wall Street will benefit and I will have to stand by and watch while they give themselves giant bonuses. I really wish the public could vote on this because I don't think the gov't knows much about money management.

I think its time we took a look at what it will actually take, to crash the whole system. We all expect the house of card to come crumbling down, but what is the likely catalyst? We have the fiscal cliff coming up, we have the elections next week....Debt ceilings don't matter anymore, banks and corporations just get bailed out. QE unlimited is in action and not causing to much of a stir. Unemployment is 7.8% and steady. The USA is in debt up to their eyeballs, but interest rates are so low, and will be kept low til at least 2015 that they can borrow forever without worry of ever having to pay it back. So what is going to be the last straw? Food prices should be inflating, but I haven't really noticed too much as of yet. The housing market sucks but still manages to truck along like no one is watching. Gold keeps fluctuating between 1700.-1800 an oz, and oil remarkably is staying below $100 a barrell, because they know it can't go higher due to competition. Tax cuts/increases, austerity measures, health care, or what? What is going to be the straw that broke the camels back? To be completely honest, I'm getting tired of waiting for the imaginary crash to happen. Maybe the rumours are true and the federal reserves contract actually does expire on dec 21 which will render all federal reserve notes completely worthless, like an expired coupon, which is why they only accept payment in gold....Also, has anyone taken into account of what the cost of hurricane sandy is going to be due to damages? Where is that money going to come from? Will they just print more and pay it off, or will they use the hurricane to promote job growth and use it as an economic stimulus? It seems ass backwards to me. But then again, so does the entire economic system the past decade, Its starting to feel like nothing can crash the system, and the corruption will just keep getting worse forever, until conditions are so bad that people finally decide to put down their video game controllers, maybe excercise a little bit to go outside and protest, by which time it will be too late because the governement, or should i say, banks and corporations, will have too big of a monopoly that martial law will be put into place and everyone instead of pretending to be slaves, suddenly realizes they are one....What does the future hold?

If you guys think you are over taxed.
Think again...
Compared to Sri Lanka and Bangladesh yes you are over taxed.
Compared to most if not all developed countries you are at 1/3 of the real deal.

That's a gross understatment!!!
i.e. Social Security payments adjustment in 2013 is 1% based on GOV's inflation stat of 1%.
They do not include include Fuel and Food in their inflation rate. If they did; it would be 10%!
But they don't care about living on SS because of their fat Gov pentions.
Term limits for all elected !

"Fed Report: 100% Chance of Recession"

Now that the election is over, the propaganda media can back off the burying of those critical stories that they couldn’t be bothered to report in the lead up to the re-election of President Obama.

What are we talking about?

For starters, the Federal Reserve’s recent report, which received nary a comment from the political and financial pundits on television.

While the economy was on the minds of most voters last night, what they didn’t know may have very well swung the election to one candidate over another.

And this particular tidbit of data is as important as it gets when we’re talking about economic health:

see, after the massaged news that was spoon fed the Øbama voters... now the ugly facts are being slowly released to the bread-&-circus crowd

gold reserves are 90% gone
severe austerity will be the new normal

here's the latest warning from our economist friends


When Infinite Inflation Isn't Enough

Peter Schiff
Euro Pacific Precious Metals
Posted Nov 8, 2012

If no one seems to care that the Titanic is filling with water, why not drill another hole in it? That seems to be the M.O. of the Bernanke Federal Reserve. After the announcement of QE3 (also dubbed "QE Infinity") created yet another round of media chatter about a recovery, the Fed's Open Market Committee has decided to push infinity a little bit further. The latest move involves the rolling over of long-term Treasuries purchased as part of Operation Twist, thereby more than doubling QE3 to a monthly influx of $85 billion in phony money starting in December. I call it "QE3 Plus" - now with more inflation!




the longer exp;aination of how the base ammount of $40 Bn monthly turns into $85 Bn monthly has to do with the Fed participating in buying into derivitives, which in effect doubles or trebles the funny money the way that fractional reserve banking creates an increases the flow and velocity of money


can you believe the Fed buying into derivitives for over $1 Trillion a year in paper from the $480 BN from the seed money on their balance sheet


where will this $40Bn X 12 go.... into speculation by the bankers/wall street of course --- even as main street languishes
and my guess is tat the payouts on redeemable derivities will be a 'PUSH' end result...or a zero sum gain

CNBC is pessimistic about a solution before the dreaded "fiscal cliff".

www.cnbc.com...


I hope this isn't off topic. I found a new 'Truther' hero named Peter Santilli. He is a radio show host. Last night, he informed about a law enforcement source who said fellow LEOs are getting ready for the American SHTF. Sounds like Mad Max meets the Civil War. I hope this doesn't come about. I'm not a "bring it!" person on this'un.

Ive predicted, with my close group of friends and family, that by mid-February to late March, we will see in increase in “asset” purchases by the FED’s from 85 Billion to 120 Billion a month. This will either be announced or hidden from the public. I calculated this prediction based on the theory of diminishing returns.

If this comes true, be ready for the S*** show to come by mid July and shortages to arrive in all asset classes, most notably in oil and FUEL! If this prediction comes true, I’ll be making my final preparations to leave town, that’s how dire it is.
