"Bill Gross, who runs the World’s Biggest Bond Fund at Pacific Investment Management Co., eliminated government-related debt from his flagship fund last month as the U.S. projected record budget deficits."
Note: Bill Gross dumps the bonds first, then makes the announcement, so as not to devalue his holdings before sale or let buyers know he was dumping the bonds.
See the words of the prophet in the reprint of the Thanksgiving Post on this blog predicating the devaluation of NY Bonds and the subsequent increase in interest rates requiring a large budget increase to cover the higher rates. Also, link to Rating New York Bonds
The words, Mene, Mene, Tekel, u-Pharsin, written by a God of Justice Disrupt the Albany Victory Celebration (King Cuomo, Silver, Paterson and Sampson in their blue uniforms with their new committees behind them)
*picture described in note #1 below
CuomoTARP has obtained two translations for the handwriting "Mene, Mene, Tekel, u-Pharsin" on the walls of the NY Capital Buildings. It was the same Aramaic words the Babylonian King Belshazzar saw on the wall in Babylon around 539 B.C., *See historical note #2 below
Translation #1: Mene, Mene, Tekel, u-Pharsin translates to Number, number, weigh, divide in two." And the meaning is the same, for both King Andrew and King Belshazzar, "God has numbered your remaining days in power; your number is up; you've been weighed and found deficient; and your State will be divided up financially and given to its creditors."
~ from Ambrose Bierce's Dictionary

U-Pharsin; Your bond values will be cut in half

*note 1 The hand-writing upon the wall is a print etching and aquatint, hand-colored by Js. Gillray and shows Napoleon, Josephine, French soldiers and women seated at feast with dishes "Bank of England," "St. James," "Tower of London," and "Roast Beef of old England." Napoleon looks in horror at hand of Jehovah pointing to words in sky: "Mene mene, tekel upharsin."
note 2 from Daniel 5:25–28: "And this is the writing that was inscribed: mina, mina, shekel, half-mina. This is the interpretation of the matter: mina, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; shekel, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; half-mina, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians.
That very night King Belshazzar is slain, and Darius the Mede becomes King. (The end of the Babylonian Empire and the beginning of the Persian/Mede Empire)
