Trump Says He'd Love To Fight "Mr. Tough Guy" After Joe Biden's "Behind The Gym" Threats

Joe Biden said he wanted to take Trump behind the bleachers and beat him up. No one on Clinton's side disavowed that call to violence because, we assume, they consider it justified hyperbole, but, as NBC News reports, it appears Donald Trump is in.

While campaigning for Hillary Clinton last week in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, the veep said he's always asked by reporters if he wished he were the one debating Trump.

"No," Biden responded. "I wish we were in high school. I could take him behind the gym. That's what I wish."

Rounding out a full day of rallies in Florida Tuesday night, the GOP nominee went off on a tangent against Biden, calling him "Mr. Tough Guy" for comments the VP made last week that if it were high school he'd take Mr. Trump "behind the gym."

Trump remembered the comments slightly differently — he said, "did you see Biden wants to take me to the back of the barn?" — but wasn't deterred by the sentiment behind them.

The Boredom Before The Storm

Submitted by John Rubino via DollarCollapse.com,

With all the surprising and/or disturbing things going on - Brexit, China's soaring debt, US/Russia/China saber rattling, the, um, unique US presidential race, the cyber attack that shut down big parts of the US Internet - you'd think that an unsettled world would be reflected in skittish financial markets.

Instead we're getting the opposite, with stock price movements becoming more and more placid as the year goes on. The following chart shows the volatility index (VIX) for the S&P 500 which, after some notable action in 2008 and 2011, has become ever-calmer, with recent readings comparable to the (in retrospect delusional) levels of 2006, just before the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression.

And it's not just equity risk that has been pummeled...

What's going on?

First, during credit bubbles volatility normally contracts because enough new money is being created to provide pretty much everything with a bid. In other words, all the new liquidity being created by desperate governments has to go somewhere, so dips get bought before they can become drama ...
