There are only a few truths in life; the truth of God's love, the truth of mother's love. However, on the flip side lies and fabrications permeate the very fabric of everyday life in America. Some lies are deadly and could set off a series of events that may rage until the horrible conclusion of the apocalypse itself.
The Lies that will destroy our society:
Oh yes the economy. People are numb to the arguments of the soon collapsing economy. People have heard the sky is falling since 2009 yet the sky remains in its ordained position. Well I have news for you, the sky is falling and when Obama exits the Oval Office the scab will also be removed from gangrenous sore that is our economy.
The Simple truth is this; the economy is manipulated. Now that is certainly not breaking news for those who study the mechanisms of the modern economy but the type of manipulation is not sustainable and when top power brokers are unable to sustain the mirage the world will be transformed. We have watched Europe teeter on economic destruction. We have watched Asia all but collapse yet the talking heads still maintain the bull market mentality that serves as catnip for the investing community. Yes, there is money to be made in the actual stock market; but at what cost?
The manipulation is a complicated soup with many different parts and ingredients. Its a conglomerate of many different actors from many different countries all signing the same tune. You might ask; how could such coordination be possible? Well it's not a script they play by but the desire to survive that motivates them in one direction or another, that motivates them to give one slightly inflated opinion or another. And so many times those songs and opinions create massive swings in the daily markets. When everyone is signing James Taylor all is well when one is signing The MC5 all is not well.
The number one stock on the planet to watch is Apple Inc (AAPL)
Apple stock has been teetering on collapse for a year, while it enjoyed a brief resurgence early this year it has yet again started back on it's toward trend. This one stock determines the health of the Nasdaq, if Apple collapsing the Nasdaq collapses. It is scary to think that 3 or 4 stocks could dictate the overall health of the markets but that's exactly the case.
Don't be fooled when the talking heads say "retail markets have recovered", it's a lie. the graph above represent money velocity or the rate at which money from common people flows through the nation's economy. Money velocity is lower than before the KOREAN WAR! There is no money everything is based on credit.
Take this any way you want but the lies of the last 5 or 6 years will be exposed in the months to come.
