JUST LETTING YOU KNOW

Here’s what I was hearing today ladies and gentlemen:

You know what we need?

We need the people that can afford it to pay more of their fair share.

We need to step up government spending.

We need an infrastructure spending.

I heard the President today blame everybody but himself and his policies. He said people need to step up and pay their fair share. And we need more government programs. That’s the ticket. That’s the answer.

More deficits.

More government control.

More government answers.

Every answer is what more government will do for you.

More government spending.

And higher taxes.

More green energy. I heard that out of the president today. We need more green energy.

FORGET THE TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THAT ARE GONE TO COMPANIES THAT WERE HIS BUDDIES, BUNGLERS AND HIS FRIENDS – THEY’RE ALL BANKRUPT!

George Bush. It was a just a trillion that went to Iraq. We’re now out of Iraq. Have you been reading the about the bombings that are happening daily in Iraq? I have. Doesn’t anybody think there’s a chance that somebody worse than Sadam Hussain could take it over?

Who are these people? I’ll tell you they are. They’re running us into the ground. They are so lucky they have us…

…and our hard work

…and our risk taking

…and our ingenuity.

Because I’ve got news for you. THEY SUCK!

So we’re at this point where I’ve told you for years that nothing’s bad until the market says so. Well the market’s speaking up. And yes, part of it is Europe. But I’ve been telling to not ignore what’s going on here.

Now you would think…didn’t we still gain jobs? Unemployment has improved somewhat, though it was up a little bit here.

Why did the market get killed today?

Well it’s simple. The market came to the realization over the past few weeks and months that nothing’s going to change. These people that are running the show are insane. They are economic socialist dictatorships. Spending money that they don’t have. Infinitum.

The next six years of our tax payer dollars have already been spent.

They should be in jail for this.

Who are these people in government?

George Bush. What did he do in business? Oh, he was given a piece of the Texas Rangers to own. He oversaw a defunct oil company.

Barack Obama. What has he done in the business world? NOTHING!

Yet, there are our two most recent presidents.

And this one building up $6 trillion in debt over three years. He beat George Bush. George Bush didn’t even do that in eight years.

And now you see some outcomes. I’ve been telling you for 3 1/2 years on my radio show. There is no way we’re going to see the economy find its potential. It’s impossible for an economy to find its potential when you have the government spending a $1.5 trillion inefficiently every year, adding to debt that everybody knows has to be paid back.

There’s no way the economy can reach its potential if on a daily basis you are blasting every business out there. In the past 3 1/2 years they have gone after Walmart, oil companies, medical companies, doctors, lawyers, insurance companies, banks, brokerages, coal companies….shall I continue?

I can go on and on.

The Market

We walked into a big gap down into the market today. The market was gapping down even before the employment numbers came out. And then kinda sorta – all heck broke loose.

The only port in the storm was that everything that was sold today was put into gold and gold stocks. Not as an inflation play, but as a “just put me somewhere play.”

And, of course, they went into treasuries. Wait till you hear the yields on the 10- and 30-year…holy smokes.

Leave no doubt, this bearish phase is gaining teeth. As I have told you for the past few months, as it was topping out and more and more areas were getting into trouble, we have no idea how bad it gets or how far it goes. We just know that we are in a corrective phase of unknown price and time.

The support levels that I have told you about over the past few days, were taken out today and somewhat on the easy side.

More technical damage was done in the market today.

And I hope you have been listening to my radio show. This did not start today. This started in Mid-March, when first I told you about the Advance/Decline, new highs dissipating and then it was the financials. And then the Semiconductors. And this, that and the other thing.

And where it stops, I don’t know. All I can tell you is, after the break today…expect some more downside.

The Fed meets June 19 and 20. We’ll see what they have to say. But I have news for you. I’m not sure they have any ammo. They certainly don’t have any one the economy. Part of the problem is that the Fed has sat around allowing all this deficit spending.

Government has the answer?

No. They have nothing. They failed in everything. Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, it’s all bankrupt.

But there’s good news…

We will come out of this. And it will spawn new leaders and big movers. So do not every turn your head away, we’ll let this bearish phase go through. And we will find the characteristics of the turn when it occurs and we’ll talk about what’s leading at that point in time, when it occurs. NOT IF…but WHEN IT OCCURS.

The Nutmeg State will be funding the Communist Party.

Yep, despite massive debt and a mushrooming deficit, Governor Dannel Malloy, with the obedient Democrat legislature in tow, will convene the State Bond Commission on June 4th and push through a $300,000 “grant-in-aid to Progressive Education and Research Associates to finance renovations to the New Haven Peoples Center at 37 Howe Street.” The masquerades of Progressive this and People that aside, 37 Howe Street happens to be the headquarters for the Connecticut Communist Party, run by Joelle Fishman, who also happens to be the regional bureau chief for the infamous Peoples World. Which, yes, also happens to be located at 37 Howe Street.

TERRIBLE JOBS NUMBER…BUT HERE COMES QE3,4,5…

[email_link]

Commodity stocks, financial stocks, retail stocks and just about the whole market have been telegraphing slower growth. In past weeks, we have seen softer numbers…and now this. Very simple…this is the outcome of the nauseating pro-government, pro deficits, anti-business, over-regulated, anti-business rhetoric and higher tax policy of the people in power. We have been arguing here for the past few years that there was no way the economy could reach its full potential with all this stupidity being shoved down our throats.

As we write this, markets are down 1.5-2% depending on which index you are looking at. The market has been in correction mode for weeks…and has been acting uglier by the day. Keep in mind that Bernanke is out there and will come up with another assinine program when they meet June 19-20, if not before. But not so fast. As we write this, the ten year is now yielding 1.47% with 15 year mortgage rates under 3%. We are not so sure there is anything left for them to do that could matter…except try to juice the market again. But of course, we will be watching.

As pro-growth policy fiends, the only good news to us is that this most definitely will have an impact in November. We must find people who understand that it is WE THE PEOPLE…not WE THE WASHINGTON. We must find people that believe in US and not THEM. We must find people who understand that government is only in business because of OUR tax dollars and will not disrespect those tax dollars. We must find people that recognize that Washington has already spent the next 6 years of our tax dollars and will make policy that changes that momentum. The people currently in power have no fundamental understanding of what makes the economy run. They think they are smarter than us when most of them haven’t even run a lemonade stand.

There has been a lot of talk about Europe lately…understandably so…but we had better start talking about our issues, our debt and our anti-business policies. Of course, Krugman will blame it on NOT ENOUGH spending by Washington.

Will have a full market report over the weekend. We have no clue if Mr. Bubble (Bernanke) opens his yapper today and turns the market but at the open…yikes! The only thing we are watching here is whether the market can again be defended at support we outlined for you yesterday…as a break below just leads to another leg down.
