The Washington Taliban must have taken over these MSN articles.  No place in America is safe for money.  The Taliban will figure a way to get it.

I remember reading an article on here, within the last year, saying that Brazil was the place to put your money.  Large population, expanding economy, oil found offshore, small military expenditures.  The article said that Brazil would pass the USA as the worlds second biggest economy by 2050.  Now MSN has an article telling us NOT to invest in Brazil.  I'm glad I don't depend upon MSN for investment advice.

"Actually, China is the place to be and now is a good time to enter a position in FXI, which is made up of primary value businesses, which include oil, phone service, construction Insurance and the like."

 

Apparently you missed yesterday's article about Chinese Techno-espionage. A company there has been caught TWICE stealing American Enterprise Secrets and selling them to Chinese knock-off makers. I understand there have been over 60 such incidences in the past 30 days. How about we DON'T invest in China, seek out who has, kill them, and use your wealth to restore America? Please be sure you voice your counterpoint- naked in Detroit near a defunct factory. Funny thing about the Internet- it never forgets. We can source the data trails and know EVERYBODY who bought China stock over the years. I'm betting the NO LESS than 95% of America agree- that's TREASON. Go global... get your asss out of AMERICA. Good luck finding any other country that wants you.

The day after QE ends, 100% of the false stock markets implode. Bernanke's $85 billion has been the sole factor keeping them alive. Think about it... every single one is a "business platform" employs paper and button pushers, overworked and stressed clerical and basic labor forces. It's like showing up to the Playoffs with cardboard cut-outs of former memorable players. Generation X is going to get slaughtered because it stole roles from REAL experience and skill sets. It made Twitter, Facebook and Linked-In... three Anti-American clique-supporting terror vessels their means to communicate and turn Free Enterprise into New World Order. America's BEST aren't collecting bogus salaries, betting on sporting events and stealing QE from the economy. You can run, but when the whole world has been victimized by your crap... you get gone quickly. Why do you think Buffett and Bezos bought newspapers?

Number 6 should be for anyone contemplating traveling on Amtrak in the USA. Food is horrendous and over the top expensive. I call it "Train Robbery". No joke!

A couple of years ago the BRICS were the place to put your money if you wanted double digit returns.  Now that they've tanked, maybe it's time to get back in.

"President Barack Obama urged Americans to continue to "live our lives" on Tuesday amid a suspected al Qaeda threat that has closed more than a dozen U.S. embassies.
In his first public comments about the potential plot, Obama told "The Tonight Show" host Jay Leno that the threat was significant.
However, the president pointed out that the odds of dying in a terrorist attack were less than dying in a car accident.
"Terrorists depend on the idea that we're going to be terrorized," Obama added. "We're going to live our lives."
$$$$$$$$$$$

We aren't living our lives now. Is- al Qaeda how you say- Wall Street- in YOUR language, or is it- Ivy League.

Why not ask ANY of the 83% who want to flush DC completely, if they are more terrorized by al Qaeda or Ben Bernanke's QE and his members of a terror sect BANKS using our future to make sure wealth and seniors LIVE but the entire rest of the nation--- NOT.

Get a grip, loser. You are reprising Cold Wars and chasing Ghosts, you have done a TERRIBLE job as President. Everybody knows those are created by Corrupt Power solely to profit from the war business they generate. You want peace? Unplug the Internet and dissolve corporations. Reconcile the Dollar and kill all the Inflationists. We'll have to do it anyway.

Do your job for once and give regular Americans a break. Time is short, we will be eating the rich soon. They got the good food while we got GMO'd. Bet they are tasty.

Al Qaeda-- my asss. Oil Kiters is more likely.
