James, you're so politically incorrect, but honest.
I'll be forever grateful for your insights, and would vote you for President,
but why would anyone want to inherit the mess that is the US today.
We have so many discussions about what's wrong with the world, and
where it's headed. I agree, it won't be a bedtime story. I'm so sad for
the many decent folks in the US and Europe who will ha...

Jesse, you use the term "could care less" frequently.

So very true James. About today's celebration/commemoration.

Warren G. Harding’s Brilliant Do-Nothingness  (3)
Lew, almost everywhere the argument is made that the Fed's stimulus was never initiated to reverse the recession.
It was primarily to feather the banksters bonuses and to loot US citizens of their future; for the benefit the ultra wealthy.
The whole Ponzi scheme has been hidden from the 99.9% by Fed and MSM propaganda. Calling it Keynesian if you like.
It is obviously massive fraud, and the US gover...

Jesse, many of us have gold or miner shares, but cannot or dare not sell at these ridiculously low prices.
So even if the monkeys hammer the gold price down for the Comex or FOMC, our hands are tied, as no longer have funds to keep on buying.

Did you see how fast the gold miners shares dropped as the stocks plunged this afternoon?

or the hedge funds simply 'threw the baby (gold miners) out with the water'.
