  1. I thought Miller would take up the slack but apparently they just put out an add that is offensive to women. All these idiot beer companies need to do to get their customers back is to go back to the 70s type of advertising. Nothing like a bunch of super hot babes dancing around the campfire drinking beer like drunken college girls to make us beer belly middle aged men want to buy their products.
  2. I just bought a liquor store here in Kansas and ever since the Budwiser catastrophy we can't keep Yuengling on the shelves. Not even Walmart can get enough. So much for being WOKE. 😆 Last I heard Budwiser has lost 8 billion.
  3. Actually, I believe that most of us who understand what gender they truly are, fear the crazy insane and demonic controlled FEW who don't know what the word GENDER means.
  4. I never said 'you are going to hell' I have insinuated that you may be listening to wrong spirits that don't have your best intentions. As for the Trump possibly being the Antichrist ONLY stems from his first election and how loved by the world's people. One of the main characteristics of said Antichrist. In the 60 years I've lived I have NEVER seen ANYONE so disproportionately loved by so many people.
  5. As many of you have noticed I've not been posting much lately. The reason is because of medical issues which have greatly hindered my ability to tolerate certain types of behavior and reply in a respectful manner. However, this subject and the path it's following, forces me to intervene. Reading everyone's thoughts is extremely saddening and leaves me with practically no hope for my children's future. Those among us who are completely controlled by Machiavellian forces will never see reality. And, quite frankly, the rest of us are just not willing to do what must be done. But as I read these comments I feel there is only ONE response to you @caddieman and it's below. MATHEW 7:21-23 21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
  6. Robert Kiyosaki warns 3rd U.S. bank to crash, Peter Schiff says ‘bigger collapse’ ahead Justinas Baltrusaitis BANKINGMar 11, 2023 The United States financial system has been rattled by the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank (SBV) and Silvergate Bank within 48 hours as economic uncertainty prevails. Therefore, some financial sector players project that the situation will likely worsen in the coming days. In particular, Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the best-selling personal finance book “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” has warned that a third lender will likely follow suit. He stressed that the situation would positively impact precious metals in a tweet on March 10. According to Kiyosaki, his prediction aligns with a 2008 forecast of the collapse of the Lehman Brothers. Notably, the failure deepened the 2008 financial crisis, and the incident was considered a defining moment. Two Major Banks have crashed. #3 set to go. BUY real gold and silver coins now. No ETFs. When Bank #3 goes gold & silver rocket up. 2008 I forecasted collapse of Lehman days before it crashed on CNN. If you want proof go to RICH DAD .com,” he said. Kiyosaki’s warning about a third bank collapse comes as speculation around the future of another crypto-friendly investment bank, Credit Suisse, continues to mount. This is after the bank announced a delay in the annual report after the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) call regarding the lender’s cash flow statements for 2019 and 2020. As a result, the bank’s shares hit a new all-time low on March 10, 2023. Additionally, back in October 2022, Finbold reported that Graham Stephan, a real estate investor, suggested that Credit Suisse could be in a ‘critical moment’ after the bank’s credit default swaps (CDS), which is essentially insurance purchased against a potential default, costs have hit the highest level since 2008. Notably, Credit Suisse’s CDS kept growing in 2023. As uncertainty prevails, economist and crypto-skeptic Peter Schiff has stated that the U.S. banking system is on the verge of experiencing a “much bigger collapse” compared to the 2008 crisis. On March 10, Schiff cautioned that mass withdrawals would trigger failures. "The U.S. banking system is on the verge of a much bigger collapse than 2008. Banks own long-term paper at extremely low-interest rates. They can’t compete with short-term Treasuries. Mass withdrawals from depositors seeking higher yields will result in a wave of bank failures,” he said. Crisis in the banking space The concerns in the banking space were triggered by the collapse of Silvergate Bank, a lender primarily focused on working with cryptocurrency entities. According to the bank, the decision was reached “in light of recent industry and regulatory developments.” Consequently, the collapse has translated into a crypto market meltdown, leading to significant capital outflow from the sector. At the same time, the meltdown saw Bitcoin (BTC) drop to lows witnessed amid last year’s bear market. On the other hand, Silicon Valley Bank, the 16th-largest lender in America, shut down and was taken over by regulators. The bank also had exposure to crypto companies and Silicon Valley firms, especially technology start-ups. The closure has also spread over to the crypto market after Circle, the issuer of the USDC stablecoin, revealed that part of its reserves was held at SBV. By press time, USDC had depegged from the dollar to stand at $0.91.
  7. Why AMC Is Among the Most Expensive Stocks to Short in the Market To bet against AMC stock, short sellers must pay some of the highest fees in the market. BERNARD ZAMBONIN MAR 10, 2023 5:33 AM EST The fees brokerages charge to borrow stocks for short trades vary, depending mainly on factors of supply and demand. With borrow fee rates as high as 142%, AMC is one of the most expensive stocks to borrow right now. Analysts estimate that short sellers may already have lost as much as $430 million on their AMC positions this year. What Makes Some Stocks More Expensive to Short? In order to short a stock — i.e., betting that its value will go down — traders must first "borrow" the stock from their broker to sell in the open market. Brokerages charge a fee for borrowing these assets. The fee varies and depends mainly on supply-and-demand factors. If there is more demand for a stock, there will be fewer shares available, leading the brokerage to charge higher fees. As a benchmark, borrow fees for common stock range from 0.3% to 3%. However, when there is a lot of short interest in a troubled company, it's not uncommon to see borrow fees for its stock shoot up above 20%. Therefore, a stock that seems like an obvious winner for short sellers can end up becoming a trap due to very high borrow fees. When the price of a heavily shorted stock unexpectedly and suddenly increases, skyrocketing borrow fees can pressure short sellers to exit the trade and reduce their losses. This is called a "short squeeze." Why AMC Is One of the Priciest Stocks to Borrow According to S3 Partners, as of March 7, AMC Entertainment (AMC) was the most expensive stock in the market to bet against. Currently, there is about $875.7 million worth of short interest in AMC — with about 25% of its total stock float being shorted. At the time S3's research was published, borrow fees for AMC were as high as 142%. It's also worth noting that the borrow fee data that brokerages provide concerns what is called the "fair rate." This is the rate targeting institutional investors. In general, rates can be larger for retail investors because the stock loan sizes are much smaller. Sometimes, this causes brokerages to charge an additional, sizable premium along with the standard fees. At the beginning of February, AMC's borrow fees hit an eye-popping 730%-plus. This preceded a rally in AMC of about 50% during the month. Some potential catalysts for the rally are: The announcement of the proposed shareholder vote to convert AMC Preferred Equity (APE) units into AMC common shares and to conduct a reverse stock split. A large volume of arbitrage trades taking advantage of the price discrepancy between AMC and APE by shorting AMC and "going long" APE. The strong participation of retail investors — who own the majority of AMC's float. According to VandaTrack, retail investors added an average of $1.5 billion each day into U.S. stocks during the first two months of this year. This was a record-breaking level of inflow. The incredible performance of other "meme stocks," such as Tesla (TSLA) - Get Free Report and GameStop (GME) - Get Free Report in the first months of this year. Why AMC Is a Risky Short Trade Taking a look at AMC's business fundamentals, there are a lot of reasons why traders would want to short its stock. Last year, AMC shares plummeted 85%, and short sellers pocketed about $1.73 billion in profits from their positions. However, this year, the scenario is different. AMC shares were up about 93% at the end of February. Currently, AMC shares are up 48% year-to-date, and it is estimated that short sellers have already lost about $430 million in mark-to-market losses. Now, one must consider that the performance of AMC stock is not traded solely on its fundamentals, but rather on speculation and the enthusiasm of retail investors. Therefore, shorting AMC is currently a very risky strategy. AMC has wide support from "meme stock" investors, and it's ultra-expensive to borrow. (Disclaimers: this is not investment advice.

  8. THE GREAT GREAT DEPRESSION Trading Legend Henrik Zeberg Foresees Largest Market Crash Since 1929
  9. Two-year Treasury yield posts its biggest 2-day drop since 2008 as financial crisis raged PUBLISHED FRI, MAR 10 2023 4:37 AM ESTUPDATED FRI, MAR 10 2023 4:28 PM EST Samantha Subin @SAMANTHA_SUBIN Tanaya Macheel @TANAYAMAC Sophie Kiderlin @SKIDERLIN WATCH LIVE The yield on the 2-year Treasury note fell sharply on Friday as the shutdown of Silicon Valley Bank sparked a flight to safer assets such as government bonds. The yield shed at least 46 basis points over a two-day period, a sudden decline not seen since September 2008, when the markets were in the throes of the global financial crisis. Perhaps by no coincidence, the flight to bond safety this week was caused by the biggest bank failure since the financial crisis. Earlier in the week, the yield on the 2-year Treasury note traded above the key 5% level. It last traded 32 basis points lower at 4.58%. Meanwhile, the benchmark 10-year note yield fell nearly 23 basis points to 3.691%. Yields and prices move in opposite directions and one basis point equals 0.01%. "While Treasury yields pulled back sharply this week and violated several key support levels, there is little silver lining as the downside was largely driven by safe-haven flows related to rising recession risk and fear over the fallout from the banking sector," said Adam Turnquist, chief technical strategist at LPL Financial. Regulators shuttered Silicon Valley Bank on Friday. Shares had tumbled more than 60% on Thursday as the bank sought to raise more than $2 billion in capital to offset losses from bond sales. Prior to the shutdown, shares were down almost 63% premarket. CNBC's David Faber earlier reported that the bank was in talks to sell itself after attempts to raise capital failed, citing sources familiar with the matter. Rapid deposits outflows, however, reportedly outpaced the sale process, complicating the ability to realistically assess the bank. The news led to another day of losses for the broader stock market, and traders searched for safety as turmoil hit the regional banking sector. In other news, nonfarm payrolls data for February rose more than expected, but the wage growth grew less than expected and unemployment ticked higher, adding credence to the argument that the job market was cooling a bit despite the better-than-expected payrolls number. The Federal Reserve has been hiking interest rates in an effort to cool the economy, including the labor market, and ease inflation. The data comes as investors consider the Fed's next interest rate policy moves. Many are expecting the central bank to increase the pace of rate hikes again and announce a 50 basis point increase at its next meeting later this month.
