Let me fill you in on what is really happening.
The fucktarded republicans don’t like the dicktarded democrats. They hate Obama-phones and welfare cheese. They want the government to stop spending money on ‘stuff’ and are willing to literally blow up the economy to accomplish their goals, like terrorists–ironically.
These idiots on the right signed some sort of document named after this retard, Grover-Norquist, which says (and I am paraphrasing here) “no real american will ever raise taxes, else your dicks will get cut off.”
So the Tea Party plan is to go over the cliff, kick Boehner down a flight of stairs, and eat lots of ham and shoot gatling guns in their backyards for Xmas.
Ah, but it gets better.
These same jackasses will come back to work, after the new year, and vote for “tax cuts”, in order to undo some of the fiscal cliff shit. In other words, this is purely cosmetic. During the next election the GOP will be able to say to their gun toting constituents “see those communists made us go over the cliff, but we cut your taxes in 2013.”
The end result is Christmas has been stolen.
As a nation, we’re throwing ourselves into lit fireplaces, wrapped in baize–all thanks and praise to our elected millionaires in congress who partake in high stakes parlour games at the expense of 300 million plebs.

We Americans should not take this bullshit. I say we all hold special elections to throw every single member of the House and Senate out on their asses and retroactively clawback all pension payments owed to these bastards!
That’s how it works in the real world, don’t do your job – you find yourself quickly unemployed.
The problem with that is, everyone likes their representatives. It’s everyone elses representatives we hate.
I can’t stand mine.
Both the Senators from our fine state can go suck a rock. The rep for my district isn’t too bad so I’ll let him alone.
I vote that the central bankers who run the Bank for International Settlements use their military industrial complex to make people like you disappear.
Fabian socialism works!
Christmas every day for Congress: free healthcare and pensions for life!
It’s all a game. Just a big, twisted game rife with malice and sneak-thievery.
The people have spoken.
The people want 0bama phones, record food stamps, crappy jobs, crooks in Congress (love that Jesse Jackson, Jr.).
Time to let the USA slide into the abyss (but don’t touch my social security you pricks- it’s my $$).
Do it for the children.
>Do it for the children
We’re not even doing this one right anymore
BTFD, They will kick the can.
ZERO percent chance of any can kicking.
Then what’s this about virtual currencies? Destroy the existing fiat, and force us into virtual currencies, which will later on be even more fiat-ized.
Would love to see as record, the movement of these guys brokerage accounts. I’ll bet most of them made some good dough last night.
I think you called it exactly! Colorful, but correct!
We all must bow down to King Norquist.
This is just another manufactured crisis to convince the public that the world will end unless they do x y z. Then when they actually do x y z, which on its own is negative and objectively wrong for almost everyone, no one will question it because “at last, they saved us.” This is the republican and demoncrap strategy to pass bad legislation on an unwilling public and yet still save face.
stock market vigilantes, if such people really exist, and if they are not overt govt agents, play directly into the govt’s hands by collapsing the market – they are helping to shape this public perception that we need tax raises and continued accumulation of a trillion in debt per year, in order to “save” us from govt inaction (which means end of the world, ya know), or gridlock, or whatever other stupid terms the media uses. Because the worst of all sins is apparently “Gridlock on capitol hill” as the media taught me in 2011 and 2012.
Oh look, our govt has the power to tell the central bankers to shove their trillion dollar loans, at interest, right back up their ass…
But the govt doesn’t do this, because the manufactured crisis serves the purpose of ushering in a new system (UN Agenda 21).
May Santa deliver a Christmas pox on all their houses.
this market is gonna make new highs next year
goin back to bed
vxx workin. ill be out before any good news , i hope!
Just finished legging into DXD, which I now hold a 100% position in. Time for some Christmas KA-CHING now as I make money into the holidays. Suck it, pleebs! The 1% are laughing at you. The payroll tax is the difference between Xbox for your kids and foreclosure.
Love the rhetoric.

Gutsy move, actually makes sense.
Looking for a long SMH a few minutes after the open and maybe an AAPL or GOOG scalp or two.
Voters get the politicians they deserve.
The average american has no clue about any fiscal cliff. And they still feel all warm and fuzzy inside because its the hollerdayz.
People with money to rig the voting system also get the politicians they deserve.
If Boner put Obama’s current plan up for vote ($400K plus no tax cut; $1.2 T spending cuts; and C/L adjustment for SS) it would pass easily. BOTH houses.
So who is to blame?
I knew it, the T Party is at fault. I saw it here first.
We know that 0bama has bent over backwards for this deal. Damn white folks.
Congressman — especially Tea Partiers — feeling small and unappreciated after Obama win. Like a kid breaking a vase on purpose just to get some kind of reaction out of their parents. They want to be big boys!
Why don’t you just write a letter to the Bank for International Settlements asking them to disappear anyone who challenges their power? I mean, be efficient for Christ’s sake, you total and complete imbecile.
So somehow its Boehner’s fault that Obama has no fiscal displine or shame at all. Because free money, MMT, and unlimted eco-pork for Christmas is on his majesty’s cronies pay back/wish list. You guys are doomed.
“These same jackasses will come back to work, after the new year, and vote for”….a raise for themselves. That’s what congress is really all about.
Well that and insider trading.
That Russell 2000 (and TNA3x etf) is one crazy animal.
Those Russell futs were so massaged within 2-3 minutes of the open.
A MUST WATCH – CNBC’s Finest Hour! http://www.thestreet.com/story/11799130/1/maria-bartiromos-best-moment-ieveri-on-cnbc.html
See you all at Gulfstream Park!
Awe, really great, Maria B..
Thanks for sharing that clip, Fly.
I don’t know what all the fear was over?
The market is down fuck all considering.
Health Insurance….which robber-baron should I invest in?…decisions, decisions..
What a fucked up tape I’m looking at.
Too many people expecting an upward tape. Gotta rape their wealth just a little bit more, to appease the central bankers.
I’ve got a gattling gun? Sweet!
But wait! There’s more, while the House of Reps are busy protecting their jobs by torpedoing the economy, the Tea Party is giving away assault rifles now, and the NRA is calling for armed paramilitary to stand guard at every school in America !!
Shouldn’t we go long SWHC now?
