Rollin' Like Sisyphus

WE’RE BACK, YOU SONS OF BITCHES!

Your green shoots are mouldering...

Your green shoots are mouldering…

Market volatility is just goddamn exciting, for the same reason people go on roller coasters.
It’s also educational, for the same reason people stop going on roller coasters when a rider gets decapitated.
Wall Street was the last refuge for a lot of our so-called money, propping up the facade of our so-called economy and fueling our so-called recovery gliding inches above the ground. Many in the financial analysis game assume that, at the very worst, there isn’t very much more down to go.
Maybe they’re right.
But they’re not.
This so-called “money” is getting pulled out for a reason, and I reckon that reason will find us all sooner than later. Handle your business and check it twice – while this won’t be the end of the world, it will feel like it to a whole lot of people who won’t know what hit ’em, but that kind of panic won’t last too long. Two weeks from now the DOW will shoot up 2,500 points, the GDP will be upward revised by 30% over the past 50 quarters, and Our Simple Affirmative Action President will take a much-deserved victory lap around The Fed, spiking a bust of FA Hayek right before breaking out a six-minute touchdown dance routine to put Randy Moss to shame.
We get the world we deserve sometimes.

    At least, so far, they haven’t decided, as with China now for the third time, to destroy infrastructure along with the rest. Though, might I suggest, if you live anywhere near industrial, that you move. This is a lead from behind, and by copycat, admin. Save when they accidentally hit on a great malfeasance quite by accident.

    I am starting to think that many of you are mostly snark about these things. You wanted different, have things you want to save, but don’t have good means of doing so. Fair enough. But for me, truly, it is nothing but cheer. Because I honestly do believe we deserve it. We asked for it, knew that getting wasn’t right, but took, and doubled and trebled down, and more, and lost as we had to lose. There was no other way. This will hurt me, in some ways, more than it will some. Then again, tasting true wealth, only to wake up truly poor? Even with a healthy body, knowing your worldly life is over might be worse than just dying because you can’t access food. In some theory.

      Bitches don’t know about my canned pears.

      Yeah, but do you realize how hard it was not to go sideways laughing while commenting? Don’t hate me for playing, or going, all blonde for a bit. And understand, one part of me was almost passing out laughing while that was written. Never mind. To think I wrote that without the “help” of libations. Don’t hate, but perhaps forgive? :p

    Deflation like a mofo. Since stocks are priced at the margin, it’s easy to make people feel rich(er) on the way up. Except no one really owns stocks. It’s just pong with the computer controlling both paddles.

    So now the programs have decided that discretion is the better part of valor. I bet more people feel poor as a result…
