    I think Bloomberg identifies “Occupy” as a dangerous “brand” (a term I hate) that was put down nationally (when it was clear that it could not be controlled by the monied SOBs) with some un-pleasantness not too long ago. Or, as Twain said, “neighbors helping neighbors.” Pretty soon, they’ll expect and demand that their government actually [...]

    Not dangerous to you and I, the non-billionaires. But to the control class?

    Bloomberg and others thought they had driven a stake through the heart of the Occupy movement.

    It’s too dangerous not to stop.

  • So, this [QE3] is a ‘clean-up’ action and I think what the Fed is really saying is ‘We’re going to keep buying this toxic paper and pulling it off of the balance sheets of the banks, pulling it off the balance sheets of Fannie and Freddie, and pulling it off the balance sheets of wherever it is until it’s extinguished.’

    Why would they want to do this?

    One of the reasons is so that the market can clear. Right now, a great deal of the U.S. real estate market is frozen because we have houses and real estate that are underwater. But we also have a whole world of things that can’t mark-to-market and that’s because there is so much fraud and so much criminal liability involved.

    QE3 – Unemployment

    The thing that makes Bernanke’s tying this to unemployment so politically brilliant and really so vicious is that, to date, the way that we have offset the monetary inflation that comes from quantitative easing and the loose monetary policy is with labor deflation. I have spoken many times about the ‘slow burn.’ In fact, the slow burn is a process by which you create monetary inflation and offset it with labor deflation.

    Rightfully, we question the stories we’ve learned, including those about the Founders who took up arms against the Empire. This begs us to question the nature of Washington’s ambition:

From Cold Spring Harbor, eugenics advocates agitated [...]
