    RD, I’m again short on time but devoting an hour a night to deciphering the upcoming signals in all the markets. I’m coming to the scary conclusion that the Fed is going to go boldly into asset puchases again very soon because of the obvious issues selling longer term bonds. That alone is heady shit implying the world is starting to bet against our ability to repay in 30 years, but more to the point, I think the Fed is setting up behind the scenes deals for another massive real estate loan purchase program to save the 3-5 majors in crisis.

    Short sales and other foreclosure offerings are drying up and the mortgage brrokers I talk to haven’t figured it out yet. At least it doesn’t seem so. I think its obvious really; the banks don’t want to continue adding losses to their balance sheets and believe the Fed is going to alleviate their now burgeoning bad loan issues. Its starting all over over again and the banks are already lobbying Bernanke.

    Simply put, QE3 is getting arranged and it has the potential of being over a trillion this time. Just a hunch but again, I have to dig deeper into the liability figures…

    Have a look at this.

    Pure Keyensianism but these are the folks that are driving Fed policy. Its political now and panic is setting in again, I can feel it.

    These economists discuss destroying the dollar like it’s just a little experiment they are trying using there old chemistry set. Talk about blinders, these guys live looking through a peep hole. No mention whatsoever of the impact on people.

    Union pride.

    State police in Uniontown said a 29-hour loss of landline phone service was caused by an act of criminal mischief when someone went into locked underground Verizon vaults and shut off the power.

    Trooper Timothy Kirsch said there was no forced entry at the sites on Main Street and on Route 119 in Lemont Furnace, near the Penn State Fayette campus. Police believe whoever shut off the power had keys.

    Police are trying to determine if the incident, which began at about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, is related to an ongoing strike by Verizon landline workers.

    I love it when folks like RD, LnL, Jim and others take the time to explain something very complex. I have lots of questions on lots of things and the guys and ladies seem to anticipate when I need a primer. See LnL above. Thanks and a hat tip to my friends of this right wing internet rest stop.

  9. Locke n Load says:

    Well I wish I could be of more help Sorta but time hasn’t been at a discount. I have a lot of running to do to catch up with my recent downtime and purchase and the next few days are going to be spent traversing 4 provinces in Canada.
    I’m going to try and cache a whole bunch of stuff regarding the markets and hopefully get myself up to speed with the recent events while in the great white north. When I have a good factual handle and evidence for my theories I’ll post them ASAP. Until then understand theres a lot of crap I need to read and assemble before I can be sure of what I speak. A very long time in the biz gives me insight others don’t have but it sure aint flawless, and markets aren’t as free as they once were. We live in odd times.

    Glad you see it as helpful tho. Feel free to ask anytime, whatever strikes ya. As always I’ll give you and everyone else my best shot.

  10. Locke n Load says:

    Ah shit, before I go and forget.
    Thanks to all of you for your good wishes regarding the new rig.
    If you’re wondering, I left Laredo too late to get a priest who was free so instead went through a Catholic forum and persused a bunch of appropriate blessings. Also learned holy water is something of a DIY concoction for the faithful and is often used for blessing homes by the laity. I took that to mean my truck could be substituted, the chiurch and the Lord would understand, and being a church of 2 (myself and the mechanics son) we were in accordance with the rules.

    The new Messenger received a full 3d sacrament as only a heathen trucker could provide, complete with several scriptures I found particularly appropriate and a silent prayer.

    Still no flippin demons chasing this girl so maybe I didn’t offend.

    Good luck with the new ride Lock. My Father said when we were all newborns he ran our heads under the sink to baptize us before the actual official baptismal. Just to show the intent to the Lord.

  12. Locke n Load says:

    Thanks Slap. Have a look at my response to Amaris, lol.
    Sometimes my responses get so damned long they almost deserve to be posts unto theselves, lol. Nota used to do that to me all the time when I wasn’t looking..

    They are coming for the Butter Cow!

    An animal rights group is taking responsibility for hanging a sign on the Iowa State Fair butter cow, saying it represents “humankind’s tyranny over defenseless animals.”

    The Des Moines Register is reporting the small sign reading “Go vegan” was attached to the butter cow with tape Sunday morning. Fair spokeswoman Lori Chappel says the butter cow wasn’t damaged.

    The newspaper received an e-mail from an animal rights group saying one or more activists from another group got past a guard in the Agriculture Building, climbed a wall and got into the refrigerated case where the butter sculptures are located. The e-mail said the group wanted to bring attention to animals used for food.

  17. sortahwitte says:

    I am going to eat a double Sonic burger today in honor of their efforts on behalf of food animals. With a glass of milk.

  18. R.D. Walker says:

    It seems lost on the moonbats that it is a “butter” cow. Butter!

    Anybody know a good source to get unbiased voting records and public stances on issues from the current GOP candidates? I must admit that even though I live in Texas I don’t know nearly as much about Rick Perry as I probably should. Now that he’s running for President, I should know more.

    Unfortunately, all the data I’m finding now is riddled with annoying political commentary as opposed to just giving facts, so I don’t feel like I can trust it.

    Heh. Reverse marketing.

    Clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch said it would offer “substantial payment“ to MTV’s The Jersey Shore’s cast members to stop wearing the brand on air.

    Mike “the Situation“ Sorrentino may have to find some new attire for his “gym, tan, laundry“ routine.

    “We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image. We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans,“ an Abercrombie & Fitch spokesperson said in a statement. “We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.“

    It seems our internet police granny from the video above is dead :(

    A 14-year-old boy is in custody after stabbing his 77-year-old great-grandmother to death with a sword, and allegedly cutting his grandmother, police say. Family members say the attacks started after relatives asked told him he would have to turn off his video game soon

    Great story DJ. It is stories like this that place my legal opposition to the death penalty in conflict with a very real desire to personally feel my thumbs permanently closing Garcia’s windpipe.

    Sorry guys, really no time to explore/explain this too deeply, been too busy BUT like I said, the market turmoil is FAR from over.

    BofA is gettting pounded again today. it won’t be alone as the other 3 big banks will get weaker too. Headline news isn’t really driving things as much as confirming bearish sentiment in the industry. Keep in mind those in the know realize BofA lost nearly 14.5 billion in the s2nd qtr in real estate and earned only 6 billion elswhere… thats profound weakness in the housing sector and although the bulk of it is related to Countrywide losses, its still telling. Remember what I said about Foreclosure sales last week? Nothing is really dissuading me from that analysis yet. BofA, once a $55 stock is hovering around $7 today.

    There once were about 20 banks that controlled 50% of all deposits. Considered too big to fail, they were herded by Frank Dodd into new territory and regulations…Today there are only FOUR banks that control half the deposits. Think about that…

    Hey now…some of us lurk in the wee hours of the night when the only way to read is thru bleary eyes and reading glasses after crazy long days..

    In the last 12 days I’ve been in Canada for 7, at great Wolf Lodge with the kids for 1.5, and leaving vapor trails on the US highways the other 3. I was up at 6 am and just now parked in Tn after coming out of a town north of Toronto this morning. After 18 hrs I still have at least an hour’s worth of BS paper to shuffle then I’m up at 6:30 before running into Ga and off to god knows where. Please, beleive me when I say its been…hectic. It kills me not being able to drop in but honestly I just haven’t had the time.

    Btw, notice this in the news?
    What do you want to bet a large number of crappy mortgages are on the table being offered to the Fed in order to alleviate the banks suffering reserves and bottom line?

    There’s a LOT flying under the radar right now and the markets know it, ergo the slide. Markets want QE3 believe it or not. Ugh. Bernanke is really wedged in a corner because he understands QE3 exposes the Emperors lack of clothes but he honestly believes it to be the best course. Focused on asset prices, he’s still concerned about deflation and the whipsaw to inflation if/when it comes. I’ll give you all a hint at why he thinks printing money is OK: he actually sees, but will never say, that we are in a mini depression and asset prices, as they fall, remove money from the system…
    if I EVER get the time I’ll explain the competing scenarios. Something tells me RD could knock it out pretty quickly and understandably tho. it IS what is driving Fed and USG fiscal policy and its critical to understand if you ever want to decipher where we’re headed.

    Sorry all, paperwork to finish…

  45. DarthJay says:

    Anybody here seen this site before?

    http://www.bigdawgmusicmafia.com/

    Some pretty good stuff.

  46. R.D. Walker says:

    Democrats tell us that 100% of people would prefer jobs to welfare.

    A woman encouraged her husband to have sex with a 12-year-old girl so that she would get pregnant and they could claim extra cash benefits.

    Alicia Bouchard even sat and watched while her 26-year-old husband had sex with the underage girl at their Florida home.

    According to an arrest warrant, the 41-year-old wanted the girl to fall pregnant so that she and her husband would have extra income from state benefits.

    Bouchard is alleged to have actively encouraged her husband to sleep with the girl who had been staying at their home in Jackson County, Florida.
    The sex and benefits scam began after the girl, who has not been named, told Bouchard that she was sexually active.

  47. Jim22 says:

    Here’s a site if you want to prepare for the pockeelips:

    http://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=192809#discuss

    Excerpts:

    “The Recognition of Reality

    It would be a good idea to become grounded in it folks, because it’s coming, and it’s not going to be fun if you’re not well-grounded in the facts.

    Let’s take a few examples, some of them from the forum and some from my own personal experience, and flesh them out.

    The fact is that the bubble that made possible the appearance of rapid accumulation of wealth was just that – a bubble. It was a fraud. This prototypical family, and the majority of Americans live like this even today, having learned nothing from the last few years, is literally one disruption in the ability to put leverage upon leverage from a full-blown economic disaster.

    But bubbles always pop.”

    Then some well-considered advice. Check it out.

  48. Jim22 says:

    “I was sitting at a stoplight yesterday ….minding my own business, waiting on it to turn green.

    A carload of young, loud Muslims shouting anti American slogans stopped next to me.

    The light changed, the Muslims shook their fists, hit the gas and darted off ahead of me.

    Suddenly an 18-wheeler came speeding through and ran directly over their car, crushing it completely.

    For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself, “Man, that could have been me!”

    So, today…bright and early, I went out and got me a job as a truck driver.”

  49. R.D. Walker says:

    We had a polka service at church Sunday. Afterwards, my church had a fund raiser over at the Legion Hall. We had a bratwurst and kraut dinner and a polka dance in the afternoon. Here is a bit of video from the mosh pit. Wild times in Iowa!

  50. Locke n Load says:

    Sorta cracked me up with that email the other day Jim :)

    I’m crediting Sorta for us both. Had me in stitches….

  51. MadBrad says:

    A POLKA SERVICE?

    That seems more Catholic to me.

    That is off that chain!

  52. sortahwitte says:

    My wife and I love to polka. Anywhere. We have polka’d in Branson, in Tulsa at Cain’s Ballroom, at the Grange Hall in Scott City,KS and others.

    But, being Southern Baptist, it probably won’t happen in church in my lifetime.

  53. R.D. Walker says:

    Brad: Your Florida Lutheran experience has warped your view of Lutheranism in America. Catholicism is central European but it is also Irish, Italian, Spanish, French, Mexican, Latin American and Hawaiian. A Catholic church is a melting pot.

    Lutheran churches up here in the land of Lutheranism are pure Nordic/Germania: Polka to the central core of their being.

  56. sortahwitte says:

    You may have heard about the southern kalifornia man put under psychiatric observation. Somehow, it was discovered he had 100 guns and an estimated 1 million rounds of ammunition at his residence.

    The best quote from the mentally challenged reporter was “Wow, he has a million machine gun bullets.”

    By that states thinking, even 100,000 rounds would be grounds for panic. Imagine if he lived elsewhere.

    In Arizona he would be called “an avid gun collector”

    In Arkansas, he would be called ” a novice gun collector”

    In Utah, he would be called “moderately well perpared” but they would want to know how much food he had stored.

    In Montana he would be called “the neighborhood go-to guy.”

    In Idaho, he would be called “a likely gubernatorial candidate.”

    In Wyoming he would be called “an eligible bachelor.”

    In Texas he would be called “a deer hunting buddy.”

    In Oklahoma he would be called…..Hey! Are you looking at me? I don’t have that many… I mean I don’t have that much….
    Never mind.

    Forwarded to me in an email from a friend…

    Obama interrupts his Martha’s Vineyard golfing to announce that the Washington DC earthquake occurred on an obscure faultline that runs under the White House and is known as “Bush’s Fault.”

    However, it has been confirmed that the shaking felt in Washington DC was actually our Founding Fathers all rolling in their graves over the state of Our Country!

  58. Locke n Load says:

    See all those comments on the side bar? THATS why I have trouble posting regular stories, lol. I spend so damn mch time driving that when I park all I have time to do is review the day’s events and throw my 10 cents into the pot. it kills me, really it does, because I have literally dozens of stories in my head as I drive but when I park it takes an hour just to sot through what you desk jockeys post up every day. Arrgh.
    Maybe you should consider yourselves fortunate. if I still worked in my old job this place would be blistered with my BS. Hell, all I did was type commentary on the world and markets back then…got paid for it too. See Brad, a Preacher recognizes a preacher when he sees one.

  59. Locke n Load says:

    Arrgh. referencing the above post I offer this:
    I’ve been dead on right about everything I was guessing at in the banking arena but the QE3 thing will now be significantly smaler. When Buffet stepped in to strrengthen the bank (BofA) he added some much need stability and cash to the operation. That saiud, he wouldn’t have if certain guarantees weren’t involved. BofA is now unquestionably a preferred bank of the USG and will not be allowed to fail. Furthermore, Buffet wouldn’t have taken that deal if the outstanding Countrywide debts weren’t addressed. Use your thinkin caps for a moment…what does that mean? It means the banking summit this last weekend arranged a few deals and cemented the Fed’s committment to asset purchases. The next QE3 will resemble the 1st, not QE2, and it will be broadcast in very hushed tones. Right now I expect they;re watching to see what the reaction to Buffet’s rescue is. I suspect it will be discounted as he’s only a money manager, not a government so he can be assaulted in the markets. QE3 will be a “private” asset purchase program, you watch. So far its falling into place exactly as I predicted.

    Hows hat for a non-post post?

  60. Locke n Load says:

    Again, sorry about the typos. Those of you in the know understand my problem. Its just plain hard to read at night…

    Serious question: does anyone actually want to know this speculation of mine or should I just drop it? I know its profoundly inside baseball and few people understand wtf I’m talking about so if it isn’t helpful I’ll just bail on the storyline. if it IS helpfuln I’ll try and find the time this weekend up in Revo’s northwest compund to assemble a readable review and prognosis.

  61. Locke n Load says:

    Since Bman brouoght it to mind I’ll suggest it.

    Don’t bail on the story lines LNL. Your posts are extremely informative, better than any out there. And, the accurate ones.

  63. RJ says:

    I was a wondering about Buffett’s BOA investment, then I read he had some deal worked out with preferred stock, and a garanteed 6% return so I figured it was some kind of pay off

    Girls wrestling boys, and now it seems in Buffalo, girls playing with boys, in football.

    This after some parents threatened legal action unless their girls are allowed to play on the same team as boys.

    Granted they are “tomboy tweens” and the hits may not be too hard, so sex equality sounds like a great idea, but what could possibly go wrong as these boys start to fill out. Iguss they will start putting them in position here they can take big hit, if such a position exists on the playing field.

    I seem to recall a wrestling post here a while along similar lines.

    Now peta will be picketing the city of new york for murdering rats with feelings. Maybe they will take their shirts off. The ladies, not the rats.

  68. Jim22 says:

    That is no giant rat. The body looks like it’s 8-10 inches long. If it’s three feet long the pitchfork is three feet wide. It’s a camera trick caused by holding the rat close to the camera while the man is in the background.

    We learned to do that when I was young. If you catch a five pound fish and hold it out at arms length toward the camera it makes it look like it’s 30 lbs. Wide angle lenses accentuate the effect.

    Wouldn’t make much of a stew.

    This is a pretty nasty crime…

    San Diego police say a boy throwing rocks at vehicles was struck in the abdomen by a crossbow bolt fired by a passenger in small sport utility vehicle.

    Officer Dino Delimitros says the boy and a friend were throwing rocks in the Linda Vista neighborhood Monday afternoon when a passenger in a black Toyota RAV4 pulled out a crossbow and fired.

    The boy was shot in the abdomen and was taken to a hospital. The San Diego Union-Tribune says his injuries are not life-threatening.

    On the other hand, I bet the little shit stops throwing rocks at cars.

    Yeah, I know. I plan on starting that up again at some point. Sorry for the absence.

  85. TN_Cat says:

    Here is a thought for you RD. Just something I do on long drives. I listen to the satellite radio and cycle through a song each from each decade. Start in the 40′s and work up through 2000. Great music from all and it is interesting to hear the changes through the decades. Just a thought. Ignore if you like.

  86. R.D. Walker says:

    Interesting. I am running out of years that offer videos. We have done all of the 70s, most of the 80s and half the 60s. I haven’t done much of the 1990s, however. I will take that suggestion into consideration.

  87. TN_Cat says:

    Anyone else catch the Sarah Palin speech? She used RD’s line from last week. “I want a divorce”.

  88. Locke n Load says:

    RD, wanna explain parse this out? I might not be free for a few days but this IS worth paying attention to. When a major bank coughs up someting like this you pay attention. The EU breakup IS in play and these folks have just highlighted the potential caualties as a sort of banking “cry for help” before the gun is inserted into their mouth…

    Personally, I don’t see a lot wrong with their estimations of the consequences except for the costs per citizen. I’d say all those costs become entirely relative in the face of civil war and a baseless currency. We’re watching the slow motion death of fiat currency, you all know that, right?

    There was a naked guy in berzerkley for about 20 years. He walked the campus, sat in chairs in classes, and pretty much did what he wanted. I don’t know if he finally graduated or some parent killed him. I guess he went across the bay to spawn.

    I just can’t imagine the police, health officials, and local govt. not doing anything about it. All in the name of “free speech”, I guess.

    And then they attacked the Marine Recruiting offices and denied their freedom of speech. Just great.

    SPRINGFIELD — Gov. Pat Quinn’s aides discussed the possibility of laying off nearly all the state’s parole officers.
    Speechless.
