    Gee Roger…this is one time I found out that it “pays” to get old!!

    I was watching the markets this mornng while the metals werer getting smashed “yet again” and I had been up all night…so shortly after midday, I laid down for a nap…low and behold, when I woke up a few hours later…gold and silver were up substantially and my gold stocks were coming back!

    It seems that there is a tremendous battle starting to take place as you have noted around these levels in the metals to hold here and head back up…so I am wondering if the Euro continues to fall apart at the levels that you discussed in today’s commentary…if we will really start to see some fireworks to the upside in the metals on the basis of “flight to quality” or “safe haven” as we have all been waiting for these things to start acting like for years now…

      The insanity of this ponzi scheme is getting harder and harder to fathom! I was looking at a random gold coin I had in my possession….I think it was austrian gold coin….whatever…but, it really SAYS to me this: I am a gold coin….I have over 5,000 years of monetary dominance over the ill-gotten gains and manipulative powers of the lowest of humanity. You can play games; run and hide – but I will “find” you! And when I do, game over for you and all the past, present and FUTURE bastardizations caused by human greed, corruption and control!
      All the best,

        Wow! Your gold coins actually talk to you?

          Yeah, I thought all the coins do? Right? You mean to tell me NOW, they aren’t suppose to talk to me? OOPPSS! 🙂

    Is anyone familiar with this site? I am wondering about their credibility as the projections for civil disorder are alarming. As always your feed back is appreciated.

      Hi Jerry,

      Thanks for that link…I posted on this forum similar information a few weeks ago…it didn’t get any “traction”, so to speak. Make no mistake about this…this is actually going on and your government is getting ready for massive civil unrest…if people can’t connect the dots and see that what America was and the ideals it was founded upon are not what it is becoming…then they are the ones who need to be “re-educated”…not the rest of the people who your government are getting ready to supress…this is for “real”…keep posting and doing your bit to help inform all of us.

      Please read my post below on the movie THRIVE…it will help put what you posted into perspective for you.

      Thanks for the link. I also looked at (in its entirety) David Icke’s multi-media presentation: The World is Utterly Insane!. It is on the same page as the one you linked us to.

      I wish I had the two hours…the first few minutes looked interesting. I’m going to try to get to the whole thing this weekend.

    I turned Al on to this one yesterday…it’s long…2 hrs…in the begining you think it’s a “nature of things” type documentary…but it’s not…then they go into clips of Edgar Mitchal and others speaking out about alien contact has happened and is happening and free energy that has been derived from this contact and they discuss how the big oil and government are stealing and suppressing any invention that will provide “free energy”…next they move onto the New World Order and do a complete breakdown of what is happening how it all got started…what the agenda is…where it is headed…and this part is really frightening!…then they move onto solutions and what is happening around the world right now to combat the takedown of any “freedom of humanity”…

    The interesting thing…is that this whole thing was produced by Frazer Gamble and his wife…he is an heir to the Gamble fortune from the Proctor & Gamble Corpororation…this is very professionally produced and well done…whether you agree with all of it or not…you will not come away feeling like you wasted your time (unless you are an idiot)…parts of it will resonate with you…some of it you may find a bit of a “stretch”…

    I was totally shocked that a guy and his wife in their position would step forward and speak out and go “rogue” and produce something like this.

    It is called : THRIVE

    Nigel Farage this week, with a more serious tone, plus answering a question from Greek representative. The answer is emotional and bang-on. 4 1/2 minutes

      Thanks for the link John W.

      Does anyone remember New Zealand? Weren’t they once on the “brink”?
      It was a tough go for a few years, but I don’t hear any whining from there anymore.

      I don’t understand all the hullabaloo about Greece – it needs to shape up or ship out – and other countries the same.

        That’s a favorite subject Irwin.

        In the 1970’s, the UK starting reducing costly imports from NZ (due to the UK’s own difficulties). The country had largely depended on exports, and had made some assumptions into their annual budgets that they would always have a set amount of income from exports, and as most countries would, set national programs in place with that expectation. It caused quite a problem as the national income fell in the 1980’s. Through a few hard years, though, NZ really did well…while personal income taxes would be considered high by US standards, the economy is very healthy, and business taxes are considered low by US standards. Exports have long since been broadened to multiple nations, and the country has been very careful to keep budget deficits down or running surpluses. Australia’s resource boom has certainly helped New Zealand with exports and tourism, but it has also sucked some talent out of the country. As such, the government is trying to attract skilled workers and businesses, and provides some incentives to so so.

        GDP per capita in NZ is $25,000-28,000 equivalent US purchasing-power-parity, however, costs for residents are also lower in some ways. It varies largely with the fast changes in exchange rates of the last few years. Australia is quite a bit higher, around $40,000, and the US around $45,000. I think it was cfs2000 who owned a home in NZ, amongst other places. Quite understandable. Probably one of the most beautiful, safest places in the world, and in that way, New Zealanders live in one of the world’s finest nations in the world.

        Ireland was a very similar success story until some morons decided to socialize the losses of a corrupt banking system. Very, very sad. Ireland was just making a killing. In fact, their GDP per capita, for a short time, was actually higher than the US, about 5 years ago. It’s quite possible to turn things around, as you note. You need people willing to do what’s sensible and work hard for a few years.

          Of course you do John W. Hard work is a necessity and I have to wonder what happened to that particular philosophy.

    Jim Willie’s article: Someone much smarter than I needs to digest this:
    -the Treasury Bond market is defying gravity, highly unstable like a great tower to reach the sky
    -the 0% interest rate in the face of annual $1.5 trillion deficits represents a great contradiction
    -the glue to hold it together includes clearly the USFed debt monetization, hyper monetary inflation
    -the hidden tool keeping the USBond tower upright, preventing its fall, is the Interest Rate Swap derivative
    -a chronology is provided to explain the Interest Rate Swap heavy usage, not a flight to safety after all
    -the IRSwap contracts were used by $8 trillion in late 2010, which routinely produce artificial USTBond demand
    -the USFed is stuck at 0% forever, and thus is forced to defend and support an ever higher USTBond tower
    -JPMorgan recently opened the door for better view of its losses, based admittedly on Interest Rate Swaps
    -the JPM losses will reach toward $100 billion in the next year, all in time
    -a chain reaction has been triggered which assures much greater losses, probably the toppling of USTBonds
    -the response will be a massive flood into GOLD

    And do not forget China has some 20-30 millions men than cannot find a wife. Meat ready for the grinder, enough to menace at least another cold war, if not flat out exchange of live fire.

    Keep in mind the global economies are micro-managed by the global banks, Wall Street and the federal reserve to move “things” where they prefer to want them to go. The problem with this is this: (1) Eventually all the gazillions in bond credit loses credence and confidence. then, (2) The primary holders of all this specious paper (named above) are left holding the bag of trash they created and it all goes worthless and caves. So while they can steal the markets and the Sheeple blind for years; at the end what they stole becomes toilet paper. Watch the Greece Euroland exit for one big nasty lesson in this opinion- Traderrog
