We will provide quotes from news articles written on the impending QE3 which is/was supposedly 'guaranteed' to take place. All the following quotes were written in September. You simply have to guess whether it was written currently (2012), or whether it was written a full year ago (2011)

Twelve Months Ago!
That piece of Shit, Benjamin Bernanke has been able to successfully con the stock market to rise over the last Twenty months via an Endless cocktease of "QE on the way"...
It really is disgusting.. No one with the power to stop this farce. No one in a position of power who wishes it to stop...
And all the so-called 'experts'... these Scum... What are they writing in the papers this week as they prepare for Friday's announcement:
"Today Goldman Sachs stated, "We now anticipate that the FOMC will announce a return to unsterilized asset purchases (QE3)" -- WSJ

Gotta happen sooner or later right?
Even a broken clock gets it right twice a day doesn't it?

The entirety of the corrupt stock market is based on two emotions-- greed and fear. There are very few who invest in the market who trust in themselves and their investing acumen. The vast majority are emasculated cowards-- following every rally, buying on every rumor or hunch-- a pack mentality.
So will there be an announcement of QE this Friday? Who knows.. Who cares..
The bottom 99% doesn't benefit in any way, great or small..
But we say when QE3 does come, let it be as impotent as probably the man who implemented it, and let it fail so miserably to jump start the market, that the Fed admit Finally it is out of 'bullets' or 'tools' in the ole' 'tool chest'
