We’ll see if our leaders take Merkel’s advice. Somehow I don’t think it will be heeded.

A little humor raising children goes a long way. When my children were a little lax on brushing their teeth, my comments were a little like this: “Janet, your breath would stop a charging rhino dead in his tracks! Jeremy, try brushing your teeth with Sani-Flush this time! Jarvis, go take the top two layers of yellow off your teeth!”

never had to remind them again.

Good point! Not too funny though … or the joke’s on us.

Well, well, well. It’s about time they face reality and admit the damage they did here. The foreign global influences took and took and took from the USA for decades. WWI WWII Korea, Vietnam and a bunch of other places where we had to fight for free.

Then with currency and tax related incentives, they made us export half our industries to Asia and other places, so they can get the work, produce wealth for themselves, and sell to the US consumers, instead of Americans selling home made products to Americans.

All along they not only dumped under priced quality products onto our shores, they dumped their excess population into our laps. The 11 million number is a farce, a joke. Its more like 25% of our nation is foreign born, maybe 70 million?

They kept us on artificial life support for decades. With stock market booms, real estate booms low rates food stamps etc. The final life support was the no doc liar loans. After that final meltdown, no more artificial options except reality.

They seem to be bringing some work back here. But they are STILL trying to give us more R/E and Stock market booms. Lets face it. They CAN’T bring ALL the work back here. The rest of the world would be out of work.

Make no mistake, loss of USD hegemony means war unfortunately. JMHO

If some politicians think we should have a nice war so it will revive our economy then they are truly lunatics.

Merkel Slams US Hegemony? “America Can’t Solve All The World’s Problems Anymore”

Tyler Durden's picture

First Russia and China, then UAE, Egypt, and Turkey… and now it appears Germany (following a phone call with Putin) is pulling the rug out from under US hegemony – just as Obama’s warmongery ramps up…


Which is odd because just yesterday, President Obama (who never lies) stated The United States is and will remain the one indispensable nation in the world… adding that “no other nation can do what we do.” Perhaps he is wrong?

“Even a superpower can’t solve all of the problems alone anymore,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel says.

Merkel did not stop there…


Seems like she is returning to the offensive from the defensive…

A poke and a prod

Russia accused of opening new front against Ukraine

Kiev and Western allies accused Moscow of launching a new military incursion across Ukraine’s eastern border on Wednesday, as hopes faded that talks held just 24 hours earlier between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko might mark a turning point in the five-month-old crisis.

Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said a group of Russian soldiers had crossed the border in armored infantry carriers and a truck and entered the town of Amvrosiyivka, not far from where Ukraine detained 10 Russian soldiers on Monday.

Meanwhile, the battle for Ukraine’s strategic coastline heated up Wednesday as pro-Russian rebel forces entered Novoazovsk, a resort town of 40,000 on the Sea of Azov. The town lies in a strategically significant location — on the road linking Russia to the Ukrainian port of Mariupol and onto Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula Russia annexed in March.

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the new military incursions on Ukraine’s eastern border indicated a “Russian-directed counteroffensive” was underway.

“Information, which in recent hours has gained another hard-facts confirmation, is that regular Russian units are operating in eastern Ukraine,” Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said earlier Wednesday. “This information, coming from NATO and confirmed by our intelligence, is in fact unequivocal.”

One other area to look at is the fact that the Shanghai metals exchange will be fully live by October. Quite interesting however is the status of their silver inventory. This has now dropped to a tiny 103 tons, down from 1,143 in Jan. 2013, just 19 months ago. How will this exchange settle without inventory? Will the Chinese replenish the inventory from the supposed COMEX stocks? Will the COMEX stocks even make through the September delivery period as more contracts are still outstanding than there is silver for delivery? I assure you, if any exchange anywhere in the world is found not able to deliver, a scramble for metal will ensue where not even the strongest “leg” in the world will be able to kick the can further!

I think at least through the November Elections. But if the Repubs take over the Senate,  (could happen) I would say look out below.

The fireworks would start in Washington and the markets wont like it. imho

Two experts warn correction could total 60%

A jolt to international confidence in central banks will lead to a 30 to 60 percent market decline, David Tice, president of Tice Capital and founder of the Prudent Bear Fund, told CNBC’s “Power Lunch.” When this happens, he said, markets will face a “period of extreme turmoil.”

This crash will be precipitated, he said, by a disillusionment with the Federal Reserve’s “confidence game,” which will then see inflation rise, and the Fed scramble to raise rates. At that point, Tice added, “the Fed starts to lose control.”

Another market watcher also called for an impending fall.

The Fed’s low interest rates could bring a “scary” 50-60 percent market correction, said technical analyst Abigail Doolittle.

“Unfortunately, I think it could come on a crash similar to what happened in 2007,” Doolittle, the founder of Peak Theories Research, said on “Squawk Box” a day after the S&P 500 closed above the 2,000 level for the first time ever. “It’s tough to know what the exact catalyst will be. But that’s the very nature of that kind of selloff. They start slowly and then happen very suddenly.”

Doolittle pointed to a 20-year chart of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. “When we take the long-term chart of the Dow … we see that it’s trading in a multiyear trading range, hitting up on resistance. … What makes this so important [is] you can see that the entire bull market trend over the past five years has started to reverse.”

“When you see that kind of gyration around the trend, typically it suggests you’re going to see some severe volatility,” she said. “As scary as it is, I think that we could see possibly a 50 percent or 60 percent correction—an equal and opposite reaction to all these unusual policy moves.”

Doolittle called Tuesday’s S&P 2,000 close a psychological milestone that means very little technically. “As high as these stocks markets go, I’ve become bearish because the underlying technicals from the long-term really support this view.”

“It’s easiest to identify on the Russell 2000,” she said. “What makes it important is the range has started to reverse the QE3 uptrend. This happened around the QE2 and the QE1 uptrend. … The gyrations [again] typically signal a correction is coming.”

It is important to note other market watchers have entirely different viewpoints. Just this week, Wharton professor Jeremy Siegel, for instance, reiterated his prediction that the current bull market will last through the end of the year.

so true goldbug.. as we age and contemplate our space in the universe ..It seems that this mellowing out takes place .

less inclined to do battle with others . but more time to make a peace with the universe .

to do not harm is a mantra that injects it self into the day to day doings.

Be at peace with the universe .. the past is the past let it go. .. for the hurt we preceive from others is the lingering  memory we carry in our own selfe,,, and is a weight we carry on our own backs  ..weighing us down with ill feeling ,, that are not necessary .. we ,,,,like silver golds post need to relax in the moment and be on good terms with all.

it is unfortunate …that some allow their feathers to be ruffled .. Lord knows, i have ruffled a few, and have had mine ruffled,

as I grow up (i think) i am learning .. life is to short .. i think it takes a bigger person when dis-agreeMENT’s happen, to just step aside.

sad that people leave, but just like the Ocean ebb’s and tides, sometimes life is that way. just like the pruning of a Rose bush, sometimes looks ugly right after, but eventually new shoots begin to grow, end result …is a more beautiful rose bush.

RNO, You Can Thank The Markets For That Bit of Poetry

Posted by Farmboy @ 18:11 on August 27, 2014  

One of those summer days when barely a breeze flows, the sun beats down and fries a man’s brain, and it was a toss up today whether which is more exciting, watching the markets or paint drying. I guess I should be thankful that they didn’t take Gold outback just cause they can.  You know its pretty bad when I have to resort to writing poetry to keep from falling asleep. 🙂


You think I should send her some smelling salts for those swoons she is having? Some of grandma’s anti-swooning gin tonic? Don’t want the poor thing passing out and hitting her head on the broomstick.


I imagine tomorrow and Friday will be pretty much the same. Guess everything is on hold until after the Labor Day party at the Hamptons. Probably a good time to go shopping for a set of tires for the truck. Has to be more exciting than market watching.


Hope all is going well up your way, Best, Farmboy
