Look, I'm not going to try to blow sunshine up your rear end. Two years ago today, it looked like The Final Washout Bottom and that was with prices at $1180 and $18.20.

The LIES, SPIN and MOPE are thick this morning as a random Fed Goon reports that "rates will soon be rising 1% per year if the economy continues to grow". Uh-huh. Just like the old adage, "if my aunt had nuts she'd be my uncle".

FMT with Keith Neumeyer of First Majestic Silver
