Bernie Madoff and Bill Gross all say publicly say the US is a ponzi scheme. The US dollar has no value. The US dollar is just a piece of paper and stocks are just paper. It's not even a game, it's fucking fraud and a fucking scam. The reality is the stock market is ponzi scheme or 90% of the stock market. Why do you think Buffet still has 40 billion in cash and only invested in commodities like oil and only a few stocks and only invested in Goldman Sachs(operator of the casino) As for Buffet, he runs a hedge fund, he sells puts and does derivatives. His buy and hold investments are 'dead money'. Buffet and rarely invest because there are so few investments worthy of investment and he doesn't have 40 billion to invest. The only new cash coming to this market is FED buying bonds. The FED is printing the new cash. There is no new cash coming from retail investors or mutual funds. The FED is not doing nobody any favors. All the FED is doing is ripping off bond investors getting ripped on interest rates and ripped on stocks. Investors are getting below market interest rates and paying more than market price for stocks and ripped off in commodities because of government intervention in the free market. So tell fucking Bernanke to fuck off!
