Not sure but the TPTB have at least implied that they will at least impose restrictions on the web. What is interesting is that we are hearing a lot moe about this than under the bush administration which was no friend of free speech. There is no conspiracy, at least not now. The agenda is fully out in the open. Either the government or corporae interests or a combination of the 2 will restrict the net in the future just as Agenda 21 will determine how we live in the future.

if they shut the internet down
there will be anarchy

lots of people and business
rely on it for their income.
When you cut off their income
bad things soon follow.

someone on MSNBC said the other day there was an 'uncanny' correlation between the current market and the market of 1930.

The correlation extended to commodities and stocks, and he says look for a BIG drop in October, with the Dow leveling out around 6400-6800 by Feb 2011.

I wish I could remember the guys name, but they showed a graphic with the market trends of 1930 and 2010, and it was eerily similar.

Stay liquid was his advice.

Can someone explain what the article means to the unfinancially savvy? Does lots of call options mean that people believe we've hit the top?

And what is the significance of Qwest here? Is it the fact that it's stock price is high mean TPTB are investing in them right now because they have built Internet 2?

Just guessing here, I have no idea.

Input appreciated.

I hope others come to this thread and comment, this feels like it could be important, even though I am clueless to the real meaning!

Just trying to keep this on the from page, so someone can answer my previous questions.

I'd like to understand this as well...

I certainly think we haven't hit the worst yet...I think the first big dip into this "recession" was just a stress test by TPTB...to see what reactions happen with a calculated drop.

if you buy a call, you buy the right to buy

if you sell a call you sell the right to buy

similarly, a put is the right to sell

if they are buying calls, they expect assets to fall in value...and then rise..!

it's a reasonably meaningless stat unless they also tell you if they are buying or selling call options.

big difference...

I don't recall where I heard this, but I don't think it was here. There was some strange activity in the cocoa futures market near the end of the bp conspiracy...a bunch of buyers got together and bought huge supplies of cocoa futures~and they took delivery, which is unheard of. What does anyone make of that? An obama tax on one of nature's best offerings? I believe the activity was centered in England. I haven't a clue what this means.

Nice thread, like being wakened to the sound of a pendulum.

A single commodity trader in London hit the headlines this month when he
snapped up 7 percent of the world’s entire cocoa bean production.

His actions drove the price to its highest level in more than three
decades. But Anthony Ward – or “Chocfinger” as he has been dubbed in the
press – is far from alone.

I don't think they will shut the internet down, unless there's a huge war.

Yes, qwest is so diabolical that they also sold out to century tell.

Maybe they invested to much into the "internet 2".....

could be a scam going on. I have heard rumors of brokers calling random numbers and leaving messages to their "loved ones" to buy a stock quick because it's about to hit the roof. Or possibly insider trading, those in the know alert friends of a merger or bankruptcy.
