Soot & Ashes Quote of the Day

"I want to stress that this is the moment for non-partisanship in America. There are a number of challenges that must be dealt with...I believe that the United States faces a moment of enormous complexity, but also a moment of extraordinary opportunity"

-Henry Kissinger, November 2008

I once worked for a man who owned several companies, one of which was called "Crisopt". I learned that the origin of the name came from his belief that in every crisis lies opportunity. Tom Billman was a very clever businessman, but he went on to become one of the U.S. Marshal's Most Wanted Fugitives, and was hunted down and jailed on fraud charges for looting over 100 million dollars from a Maryland savings and loan. He served ten years in prison and was paroled. He and his buddies are believed to have salted millions away in Swiss bank accounts awaiting the day of their release and/or payment of comparatively small fines. He was right about the opportunity.

Torture the traitors like they did to Herbert Hoover McCain.

Traitors, All of them.

Um, yeah, when Bilderberger Kissinger talks about opportunities he's talking about opportunities to commit genocide against the brown people of the world.

Kissinger won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Krugman won the Nobel Prize for Economics.

That's how you know that we live in a society controlled by the elite.

"moment of extraordinary opportunity"

Agree 100%....nobody will trust the stock market (or the fed or the politicians) for years (possible decades) to come.....and that’s why the market will keep going up and up and up...wait til China and India are CONSUMER driving economies and have OPEN and FREE trade....

This is the beginning...not the end. Reinventing America is what America is all about....we did it before, we will do it again...and again...and again.

You're quoting Kissinger?

Kissinger died 20 years ago and no one bothered to tell him.

With Germany going into recession, will ECB lower interest rate to zero.

If so wouldn't the narrowing of the interest rate gap between the Euro zone interest rate and Japanese interest rate cause yen carry trade to unwind.

Would the unwinding of yen carry trade strengthen the Yen, causing every one to buy US Treasury.

Would an event like people buying US Treasury strength the US Dollar more.

If you were going to travel to Europe, wouldn't a stronger US Dollar be helpful.

Germany sank into recession last week after government figures showed its economy had shrunk for two consecutive quarters.

Will ECB lower interest rate again with Germany going into a recession.

European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet said Tuesday he doesn't exclude the possibility of cutting interest rates further, if inflationary pressures ease.

Kissinger is not a neocon you idiots, he's as realpolitik, balance-of-power diplomat as you can get. He did his thesis on the Congress of Vienna and his hero is Metternich. Do those names even ring a bell in your thick skulls? This guy has done more good for America than any of you ever will
