A different kind of gun being held to your head. Algorithms.

Some guns kill you gradually, silently and stealthfully. These are the guns we should be confiscating.

I really hope you all watch this link.  Once to get used to Max Keiser's histrionics, and once or more to GET IT.  I hope also to not have to engage with anyone about being a leftist or rightist or anything like that.  Obama and Romney are DUNDERHEADS!!! according to Max, and, I dare say...he's probably right.  They just have no idea of what's really going on.  

So here's your chance to learn about how it's done...WHAT?  How what's done? Well, how those rich guys just get so darn rich, without breaking a sweat...how the rest of us seem to be sinking into the quicksand of penny pinching poverty...in ever greater numbers.  It's called, the markets are rigged.  The Securities Exchange Commission discovered just how rigged after that funny sudden market plunge in May of 2010...flash crash...remember?  Well, well, they had to take a little look see into the New York Stock Exchange...and...OOPS!

They got a little lesson in algorhithms and high speed trading...all to help the already rich become richer...as I said before, without breaking a sweat...while the herd...sheeple people, you and me, dear reader, and anyone else who has a 401k, IRA, or money in the markets....gets sheered.  Baaaah, you say?

Well, ok.  Hey, if you dare listen to this, don't let Max's shenanigans fool you.  He is about as smart about the financial world as anybody...and he's well respected.  And Stacy Herbert, his "straight man" is fabulously on top of things.  Together, they rock.  I really hope they're a couple, cause that would be lots of fun.
