(ZeroHedge) – The correction is coming and it will be a bloodbath

The correction, soon to be crash, is here: the market had a bigger relative open to close move today than it did on May 6. We closed at the day’s lows on massive volume, despite definitive central bank intervention, regardless whether it was the SNB, the ECB, or the Fed. The central planners have lost control of the market, and all thanks to the inevitable collapse of hyper capitalist Keynesianism coming out of the formerly most communist country in the world.

The Looming Doom has learned leading experts are advising the Obama Administration that the U.S. is poised to experience the most painful economic cycle of all: the Super-Hyper-Inflation Trauma (SHIT). While there is yet slight division amongst the experts as to whether the U.S. is already in SHIT or not, once the U.S. is fully in deep SHIT, there is no quick fix.

2.5 Million Protest Government Response To Global Economic Crisis In France On ‘Black Thursday’

Americanization as a controversial subject in the francophone world, granted, is not new. Jean-Luc Godard was obsessed with the subject treating it heavily in his films in the 1960s.
