Three To Get Ready

Fri, Dec 9, 2011 - 6:12pm

Three important items to review and ponder over the weekend.

First and foremost, if you haven't read this yet, I suggest you drop everything and do so right now:

A lawsuit such as this one could easily bring about the total destruction of the Comex/LBMA-based, fractional bullion banking system. Perhaps someone can reach Andy Maguire and see what he thinks.

Next, a little homework. Knowing what we now know about rehypothecation, please go back and read this:

Surely there's a loyal Turdite who has a savings or checking account with BoA. Perhaps someone even has a brokerage account there. If so, please review your account documents to see if you can find anything about rehypothecation of your money market funds or even your general savings. It may not matter much as the Merrill Lynch subsidiary almost certainly has rehypothecation "language" in their account documents. In any event, BoA account holders would be wise to follow very closely the continuing MF global saga.

Lastly, I need a little help. In building out the TurdMart, we added a "preparation store" as a one-stop portal to Amazon for your prepping needs. To begin with, we've added links to all the stuff I could think of.

What have we missed? What are the most important home preparations that you think you can make for the future and why? If you could pick one product that could most help you prepare for the future, what would it be? Any and all suggestions will be considered.

Thanks again for another great week. Get some rest and relaxation. If you think this week was crazy...well, you ain't seen nothing yet. TF

Here's something to Aerogarden...or a few

I have 5 with another on the way for starting seeds! In exactly 3 weeks, I have big lettuce and chard plants, with tomatoes and peppers well on their way. Have been harvesting lettuce/arugula over the last day or, a big salad! Tomorrow I start picking off some of the large chard leaves and will combine them with some from the garden...which have taken about 3 months to get to the same size.

Fantastic! And the grow lights sure lift one's mood even as everything goes down the tubes!

Been lurkin for

Been lurkin for awhile

figured i would join the party

Iam just a avg joe the carpenter, but increasingly worried about everything that is transpiring around the world. Maybe its just the internet that has awaking me but it seems things arnt as rosy as they use to be

(have they ever been?).

This site is a great resource and i want to say thank you all and our host for the knowledge gained and my mind opening up.


to SenseosenseiJust wanted to say i have the katadyn water purifier for many years now and have been recommending it to friends as a great shtf life saver. I picked it up when i was younger and into backpacking and have used it on those trips with great success.

no montezuma's revenge

Highly recommend it in everyones bug out bag.

Also just picked up the SAS survival guild a few weeks back

good stuff

and thanks for those Dead vids ecw58

Getting out and being one with nature, reminds me that theres something bigger going on, then just us, and we are just really passing through in time.

Great stuff CA

Went back in time a little bit and caught up. Thanks for that view.

Welcome aboard shaz.

I'm sure you'll get the paragraph and sentence format down pat soon enough. Look forward to hearing your thoughts going forward.

LOL??? C'mon BOP -

There are many theories about how the PMs are being manipulated, and I'm guessing only ONE is probably the right one (naked shorting). The point is that certain inputs to the market (re-hypoth story for one), should yield certain results eventually (and that one sooner rather than later). And we need to face the fact that if nothing changes, then maybe one or all of our theories about these markets may be wrong. Even Ted Butler can't tell you exactly what the money trail is for the 8 or less traders in Ag. There are no documents yet with Bernank's fingerprints on them, if indeed the Fed is the instigator to make the USD look good. So until someone does a perp walk and spills the beans, we are operating on a BUNCH of assumptions that seem to fit the data so far. Face it, we can't even get a smoking gun on cash settlements (with bonuses) at the COMEX (Gensler's back in my D-B column). Sure, people like Harvey are sure it's happening, but there's still no proof.

Remember Ag at $47? Well now it's $32. When it's up to $47 again, you can laugh at me. Until then, remember you'll be owing Turd one Ag ounce in fiat on 12/31 when we're not at $50 and you lose our wager.

Just checked in from watching some football and caught your post.

I'm more interested in the mundane reality and how these things kind of work. I remember reading that Dossier File or the hint of it all 20 years or so ago and found the whole thing so smart and shrewd and with such foresight that it obviously left me with a fascination/respect of it. I try to pay attention to any news story when it seems like maybe something a bit bigger is behind the story. Not all news stories of course, just these bigger singular events. Like the drone.

To deny the existence of anything or the possibility of anything because you don't believe in it or can't comprehend it leaves a person with a blind spot. In that regard most of us are 20/20.

Off the top of my head and in vague detail....... the Russian journalist a couple/few years ago that was poisoned in Britain. We all saw the picture I think. Lost all his hair and got sick and died. And then you have Prez. Yushchenko from that Orange revolution who mysteriously was exposed to radiation or something to that effect.

I could go look these up and be more specific and look smart and factual etc. but the point is that there is more then meets the eye and some clandestine work is probably behind it. Russian, in those two instances. I wonder of the American part or any other countries with a curious eye. To what degree does the sneaky stuff go on is the part I find fascinating. It might be more common then we realize what might go on in theses "operations" between countries and people who suddenly find themselves out of the loop or caught in that loop they ply. I just find it interesting and relevant and part of a current event in this drone saga right now.

Any titles you may have would be appreciated.

cant seem to figure out how to break paragraphs with this format

guess being a simple carpenter sometimes has its limits

career opportunities

Brazil: 50 tons of corn stolen from moving train.

All in all I guess I'm thankful there are still good job opportunities.

Train robber..minimal training....high pay...fulfilling childhood fantasy.
