Economic Atonement  (11)
No one here who has invested in metal over the last 4 years wants more bad news, but Peter
is right about the total deception the world's banks have foisted on us.

Silver may be headed for $15, a whopping 25% drop from when it floated around $20.

Using DCA, and still accumulating, I'll see you all in metal hell.

Barbarism Versus Stupidism  (33)
As for artists and kunstlers,
both barbarism and stupidism.. an intellectual duet,
of emotional barbarism, balanced by a need

on one's balloon-like head.
Those fingers, sensing the pressure differential
between the two extremes....
Perfect harmony,

Many thanks for the further research.
I'm not so much a punter as the punted.
I've paid a huge premium on the spread on silver

Years ago, I bought silver bars thinking the ingots
would have lower margins, but it just has not stood the

better bid-offer spread, so I...

You obviously have done your research.

Gold: Will It Drop to $1,000 or Was the Bottom Formed this Summer  (1)
For those of you buying metal, all I can say
is that with a disciplined Dollar Cost Average plan,
a price of $1,000 or so would be a great opportunity
to buy gold.

I view the premiums paid on gold and silver over the last
5 years as a form of insurance cost. DCA really helps the
accumulation evolution going, without massive fear or
pressure to sell when prices drop.

A Nervous New World  (7)
I was attracted to silver because of it's rarity, in real terms as you've mentioned, and it's more readily available circulation for day to day expenses.
I'm always a bit concerned about what said is the 'distortion' in pricing.
I live in Canada, and I am being fleeced on silver premiums, mind you the gold premiums are worse.
Will the ratio between G/S come down?

The TSA Is Not Above The Law!  (4)
Dear Congressman Paul:

I too hope your legislation passes. We live in strange times indeed when every air traveler is subject to state perpetrated sexual assault. It's not the government's role to replace occasional horrific crimes with tens of thousands of sexual crimes on a daily basis.

Greece is now for sale
The government shouldn't have been in the business of buying businesses in the first place.
It's like a crack addict, but if the patient is ever going to recover, there is going to be a period of withdrawal. Hanging on to the broken socialist model is a guarantee for future failure, and only taps into yet another layer in the Ponzi scheme.

What Does "Class Action" Mean  (2)
Dear Mr. Rockwell:

Just posted by, "Food for thought" panel:

"The most potent weapon in the hand of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed"

Marx, as an oppressor, understood the person whom laboured. That person, whom laboured, would never understand the mind of Marx.

Marx, as an oppressor, never understood the mind of the capitalist. Marx never earned anything...

What Does "Class Action" Mean  (2)
Dear Mr. Rockwell:

When Marx talked about labour, that is exactly what he meant, grunt muscle labour. As you mentioned, and it is ironic, ..."The guy built an entire system of thought based on this idea...", he never considered ideas or thoughts to be labour, and so the ostensible battle was between muscle and capital, never between ideas and capital, or between thought and capital, although that is pre...

Energy Independence: Government Should Neither Inhibit Nor Subsidize Any Type of Energy  (4)
Dear Congressman Paul:

What I find so self-destructive about current policy, is that in effect, US based energy companies are being forced to subsidize foreign energy interests, ones that will turn around and compete for market share in the US. This from a regime that boasts about energy independence. The formula works if by 'energy independence' you mean energy development independent of US interests.<...
