Dot Connecting

Tue, Jun 5, 2012 - 12:28pm

Even Helen Keller, Stevie Wonder and Ray Charles could see, hear, smell and feel this one coming from a mile away.

If we're going to be connecting dots, we might as well fall back upon my favorite organizational device, the dot chronology.

  • I'm just a Turd. I don't have an MBA or a PhD. I'm not a Global Financial Strategist or a Senior Economist. I live in Flyover Country USA, not New York, London or Singapore. However, even this Turd can plainly see that the current global financial/currency system is ending. We have reached the point where debt is unsustainable and, as we know, that which is unsustainable cannot be sustained. Now, if I can see this and you can see this, is it safe to assume that the leaders of China, Russia, India, Turkey et al can see it, too?
  • On Friday, ZeroHedge released a powerpoint presentation from Raoul Pal, one of the most successful hedge fund managers of this century. I found it so important that I included it in two, separate posts as I wanted to ensure that as many as possible saw and understood it. Here is one of the links: https://www.tfmetalsreport.com/blog/3849/getting-real-real-fast. Yesterday, even Glenn Beck picked up on the story. I'm posting the video below because he does an excellent job of putting it into "english". (Please remember: It's the message, not the messenger.)

It's coming, everyone. It's coming very soon. The current global financial system that has existed for nearly 70 years is coming to a dramatic end. Preparations are clearly being made by those who will dictate the terms of the next system. That system will, undoubtedly, use gold as the basis for international trade settlement. You must prepare for this event. Those caught unprepared will see their life savings lost or depleted. Those with foresight and a willingness to prepare will be spared. They may, in fact, even prosper. The end of The Great Keynesian Experiment and, with it, the current global financial system is upon us. Continue to prepare accordingly.

TF

p.s. Maybe Stevie Wonder could "see" it coming, after all?

Individualism lives here.

Final wake-up calls...critically think about what is going on around you.

Thank you always Turd...you have helped my family. Thank you for doing this. Keep up the good work.

@Cipher - From your last

@Cipher - From your last post, I think you and I would disagree on very little ideologically. That is why I'll say again, you were wasting precious time arguing semantics.

Brillant post Turd, and an

Brillant post Turd, and an excellent reminder of where we stand in the grand scheme of things. News is fast and furious, and we recently have heard what we already supposed, that Spain is essentially shut out of the bond market.

Now is an excellent time to further preparations. Food, water, medicines that are needed. If things get really bad, hundreds of thousands of people that we would consider "healthy but reliant upon medications to manage" could be seriously ill or dead in a short period of time. Think diabetics that rely on insulin, etc.

Ask your doctor for a minimum 90 day supply if you have prescription medications that you or family members rely on--120 days would obviously be even better. If the doctor doesn't like that idea, then calmly and rationally explain to them that you depend on this medication and are worried about the availability of it in the future.

Buy physical metals and expand your cache. Help your neighbor and let those around you know that you have a kind heart. It's good for the soul and you will reap what you sow.

Lease Rates

Anyone know why the lease rates for silver, platinum and palladium on the Kitco site do not appear to be working? Does this have something to do with London being closed? But then why is gold updated? Just curious.

Great post TF. Years from now we'll all be wondering why more people didn't connect the dots sooner. All the clues are there, more almost every day, we just need to keep focused.
