I wouldn't say it's so much a vote of confidence for Brexit as it is a vote of 'haha see that's what HAPPENS you silly keynesians trololol'

Perhaps. Short term treasuries are showing indications that the market is preparing for an interest rate hike.

I want the stock market to disconnect itself from politics and central banks.

One way to avoid a falling sky, would be to legislatively rename the action of a falling sky, then it never happened, it just becomes something else.

They make their living by telling you the sky is falling, that it is the other sides fault and only they can prevent it.

Everything is a matter of your perception. 

From the sky's perspective, it is ground that's rising up.

oh my. It's all gearing up to go splat.

From http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/saudi-arabia-ways-hit-back-911-lawsuit-effort-42419542

Saudi Arabia and its allies are warning that U.S. legislation allowing the kingdom to be sued for the 9/11 attacks will have negative repercussions.

The kingdom maintains an arsenal of tools to retaliate with, including curtailing official contacts, pulling billions of dollars from the U.S. economy, and persuading its close allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council to scale back counterterrorism cooperation, investments and U.S. access to important regional air bases.

"This should be clear to America and to the rest of the world: When one GCC state is targeted unfairly, the others stand around it," said Abdulkhaleq Abdullah, an Emirati Gulf specialist and professor of political science at United Arab Emirates University.

"All the states will stand by Saudi Arabia in every way possible," he said.

That, plus the fact that there's probably going to be a huge exit from the USD when the Chinese Yuan gets added to the SDR basket on friday, as well as the signals that the U.S. treasuries market is spitting out spells bad things, both for the U.S. gov and the U.S. economy.

I really sincerely hope that everyone has their rice and beans tucked away somewhere.

I guess I'm just glad that aren't going to cut our heads off. Great bunch.

Kissing their asses in the past was a big mistake... all so the oil companies could benefit. I guess oil production in the USA will be coming back up online soon.

Obama had vetoed the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA, arguing that allowing U.S. courts to waive foreign sovereign immunity could lead other foreign governments to act "reciprocally" by giving their courts the right to exercise jurisdiction over the U.S. and its employees for overseas actions. These could include deadly U.S. drone strikes and abuses committed by U.S.-trained police units or U.S.-backed militias.

Probably as it should be. Maybe Dubyah can be tried for his war crimes.  ;D Right next to Obama.

You know that's never going to happen unless we, as a society, reach a point where it won't matter any more.

The point is, though, grab your socks because soon they'll be $100 a pair.

So are you going to invest in socks? Seems like a great opportunity.
