:lol: I too could swear forever without repeating myself, but it would have to be in Hungarian. Not enough fancy words in English to accomodate. However, I thought a simple GFU was perfect.

I don't hate you leon, as I do realize you have useful things to say, but your method of getting your message across is overbearing and (though I realize your impatience at informing forum members) you may be instead losing people on this site instead of helping them.

Not sure if that was too long and boring for anyone.

Also, my apologies for not having money to send to bfn lately.

The road to serfdom has many signs along the way.

Subsequent to Moody's downgrading of their debt, here was a reply:

we have prefunded our planned borrowing needs for the year," said a Bank of America spokesman.
The grand design, reflected in the face of Chaos.

All this financial bedlam with the stock market, currencies wars and Greek debt just a head fake. Real news are in production numbers, like food and energy, especially food. There were historical examples when prosperous (in agriculture) nations went to famine in short 5 years, it really depends how inventive the current pack of politicians.

It may be the case that Obama finally invented the remedy to American obesity problem. Next 12 months will show.

An honest psychopath? - Who wants you to buy stocks?
Fearmonger on the BBC? - The Euro is going to crash? - So that's good for the Pound and Dollar, yeah?
Trader Or Prankster? We Called Alessio Rastani And Asked
http://www.forbes.com/sites/emilylamber ... and-asked/

Yesterday a purported independent trader going by the name Alessio Rastani appeared on BBC and said some delicious things, namely that he’s been dreaming about a recession and that Goldman Sachs rules the world.

Gawker promptly called him a “sociopath.” My colleague at Forbes said he might be a psychopath. Some people commenting on his Facebook page called him a “muppet,” a “nasty little self-publicist” and a “totally honest bastard who wants to rise to the top of [on] the rest of the world’s misery.” Another suggested that he die.
...
He's NOT a Yesman apparently on some people's checking, but why are the BBC pushing his crash-chaos pitch?

or we should buy put options?!! -

So I guess, going by the rule of always taking the exact opposite of what the BBC pushes, that the EURO is NOT going to crash!
(Phew, I was worried for a second there!)

Yeah, basically i say he's a CNBC wanna-be.

Of course, it is TRUE that the best way to make money is to buy low and sell high... and for that, this MF'er is correct. Bastard is salivating, ain't he?

Anyway, ya gotta love this dramatic shit! Media rules!!! :lol:

Well it is obvious, isn’t it? The jackals run successful campaign to herd the cattle into USD and Treasuries. Then they gonna tank it as well.
There is no safe haven once you lost your civilization. Not even in cows.

I will stick to the cows, thow. Kinda like to eat, got that sorry habit of having 3 meals a day.

I also wondered if he was trying to shill the thing down so he could go long… Because, for as many times as this was submitted, nobody mentioned what happened the next day:

FTSE 100 +204.68 +4.02%
DAX +282.88 +5.29%
CAC 40 +164.04 +5.74%

Depressions are expensive. The bankers demand that the people must pay.

Anglos are installing puppet regimes everywhere from Middle East to Europe to squeeze the population for the benefit of their crumbling financial empire.
