Turd's Day Off

Wed, Sep 19, 2012 - 8:42am

I will be out for the entire day today. Here is an open thread for you. Now remember, just because Dad's away doesn't mean you kids can ransack the house and run wild. Play nice and remember The Golden Rule.

For fun, here's a discussion starting point that was emailed to me a few days ago.

From: Trustable Gold

Have a great day!

Could someone email Commissioner Chilton the last 1 hour silver chart and have him look us in the face and tell us honestly that there is no manipulation in the silver and gold markets??? SERIOUSLY!!!

Let the countdown begin

I'm ready for another move to the upside One of these days it will get disorderly. Watching the daily 5 minute charts can get me depressed on mornings like this. I have to back off for a full month view to see the big picture.

I got so excited

that I accidentally hit the buy button. Well, guess I'd better go gather up some eggs and get to the store and sell them before the check tries to clear.

Do you really believe that Bart Chilton or anyone else in a position of authority gives a rat's rear end if one of their buddies is spiking the market. Remember, most of us are here to begin with because we have lost confidence in our government's ability to do things right.

Bond Attack

Beijing hints at bond attack on Japan

A senior advisor to the Chinese government has called for an attack on the Japanese bond market to precipitate a funding crisis and bring the country to its knees, unless Tokyo reverses its decision to nationalise the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu islands in the East China Sea.


Kind of obvious that they would do the same to the US. Our idiot politicians should understand the new type of war.
