    It's still happening in the financial markets but just like in Vegas it only works when the suckers have money.

    If this is truth, this would be outrageous. Is America really falling on knees?

    The writing was on the wall with the banks though. How could you have propped up the market in the face of the world's biggest banks on the tipping point of collapse?

    Balance sheets were unprecedented. I really don't think the government would swoop in and prop up indices when the only logical situation for the market was a crash. And where would the BANKS have gotten the capital to do it when the largest in the world were facing imminent collapse?

    But who's to say they didn't put a FLOOR under the crash at the March '09 bottom?

    Just a thought. I don't have any opinion either way about the PPT, but if I was forced to make a decision I'd probably say I don't put ANYTHING past the government.

    A portion is on their knees. There is still a good portion running with the pride brigade.

    It kind of sounds like pump-and-dump, only a version that lets rich bankers get their money out before freefall.
