The end of the Great Keynesian Experiment is upon us. Turd Ferguson and his band of loyal Turdites patrol this Watchtower. We are here to help each other navigate the coming economic chaos. However, no one can predict every eventuality, so please read the disclaimer and community guidelines before proceeding.

We Are SO Screwed

Before we get into the usual metals discussion today, I thought I'd take a moment to discuss what is being called "Taxmageddon". Not for the fiscal or economic policy ramifications but as a perfect example of just how hopelessly broken the political system in the United States has become.

Here Comes Turd, Hat In Hand

I must be a glutton for punishment.

Summarizing Our Predicament

In the past 24 hours, two terrific pieces of "research" have been published by a couple of prominent Turdites. The presentations do such a fine job of summarizing the monetary part of our current predicament that I decided to create this entire new thread around them and begin a discussion.

Mornings With Andy

As luck would have it, I had something I needed to run by our new pal Andrew Maguire this morning. Without looking at the time, I rang him up at about 9:45 EDT...15 minutes before the London PM fix. What fortuitous timing!

Too Surreal To Comprehend

There are days when I sit back in wonderment at the position in which "Jimmy Stewart" finds himself. To go from regular dope to regular-dope-with-amazing-contacts is sometimes difficult to deal with in that it's so surreal. Anyway, there's just a lot of interesting stuff going on in the world, 99% of which is never discussed in the media, financial or otherwise.

TFMR Podcast #17 - Chris Martenson

On Thursday, I had an opportunity to visit with Chris Martenson. Chris is obviously very smart but, best of all, he's just a regular guy. Like most of us, Chris had an "awakening" a few years ago and he has devoted his efforts ever since to preparing his family, as well as the general public, for what we all know lies ahead. I think you'll enjoy this podcast and appreciate getting to know Chris a little bit better.

Turd on the Brink of Insanity

So, this is how it works in the Age of Lies, Obfuscation & Nonsense.

Yes, It's Friday the 13th

YIKES! With all of the recent craziness, would anyone be surprised by some completely unexpected stuff today? So far, so normal. However, given the perverse senses of humor within The Evil Empire, we all should be on the lookout today.

Sack of Nonsense Redux

It was with increasing incredulity that I file this update today.


After all of the recent volatility, don't days like today just seem like a downer? I suppose we should be grateful for the respite...but...flat, rangebound days always tend to put me to sleep.
