I'm just generally tired, so I'm taking the day off. Here's an "open" thread.

If you haven't seen it yet, below is the CBC documentary, graciously supplied by "forwhomthetollbuilds". Very kind of him to take the time to record and upload. All three parts are below. Part III is the only one of real interest.

Obviously, the producers chose to exclude the information which I was hoping would finally begin to see the light of day. Thus the title of this post. I'll try to pick up my armor and rejoin the fight next week but, for now, I can't help but feel a bit dispirited.

Have a good day and try to remember to play nice, keeping in mind, of course, The Golden Rule.

The only time I go into my bank .... is when I need more than $300 cash .... and the ATM won't fork over the lettuce .... since that situation hardly occurs .... I go into my bank .... let's say .... infrequently .... to be polite ! Turd, enjoy your day off .... just announcing .... you're taking a holiday .... takes all the pressure off .... and you can come to work .... and do .... what you love to do .... talk PMs ! Then there was .... the hoarder with alzheimers .... he knows where he buried his gold .... years ago .... but can't remember .... where his car keys and glasses are ! I love roiling markets, chaos and crisis .... that's just how my gonads were programmed .... by the Big Guy In The Sky .... Gaaaaaawd ! Monedas 1812 - 1929 Comedy Jihad True Believer World Tour

This reminds me of that constipated mathematician

Who worked it out with a pencil.

Or the cross eyed teacher who could not control her pupils.

I just lifted this from freedom force:

A public school teacher was arrested today at John F. Kennedy International airport as he attempted to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a compass, a slide-rule and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, Attorney General Eric Holder said he believes the man is a member of the notorious Al-Gebra movement. He did not identify the man, who has been charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-Gebra is a problem for us," the Attorney General said. "They derive solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in search of absolute values. They use secret code names like "X" and "Y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns" but we have determined that they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country."
As the Greek philosopher Isosceles used to say, "There are 3 sides to every triangle."

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Obama said, "If Allah had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, he would have given us more fingers and toes." White House aides told reporters they could not recall a more intelligent or profound statement by the President. It is believed that another Nobel Prize will follow.

But that's not the BIG NEWS.

But that's not the BIG NEWS. What is truly breathtaking is that the silver commercials who are long...and gross long at a record-breaking 60,000+ contracts...and which suffered incredible losses during the reporting week...and were subjected to Tuesday's margin hike...ACTUALLY ADDED MORE LONGS. THEY WERE NOT DEFEATED OR DISSUADED. THEY ARE STEADFAST.

First, the movie was well done, a polish presentation, tips not to whatever, but to whoever, and did not hear any thing really new, some nazi stuff thrown in for the masses, I suppose, the eye catchers.

second, Notice AM at a desk, but without oscilloscopes and briefs, who's missing? I guess the Whistle Blowhard was added as a front accolade name in lieu of Knighthood SIR for having a CFTC type guy present during the predicted action. If this guy is as sharp as claimed, he would be able to work with attorneys and engineers, and court experts, forming public records, to bag the whole mob, including the fall girl (Alex get the camera out quick), the she-head of commodities, but its not happening, so one questions creditability, AM without Attorney and Engineers and Experts, proving the predictive point from the method, a legal proximate cause, should be a slam dunk, but apparently, otherwise, and as such, is a whistle blowhard, not a whistle blower. Just Saying. Its not market action, even if predicted, the consequences, predicted or not, but the nefarious methods employed, that sinks the boat and bags the mob. If AM can predict the action, he should know the methods used, to bag the mob, with a procured team of hire guns. SOMETHING dont square up. what missing?

third, apparently as lay read that this COT report, after tax and crash, means that bullion banks, eg JPM GS are still short, more tricks possible, did not go long as hoped? Suggesting, the new development is the BATTLE ROYAL, bullion banks v commerical banks. Hope that one get resolved, asap.

forth, bart pleads lack of funding, poor thing. Must need a Whistle Blowhard to set it straight on a silver platter for Attonerys and Engineers and Experts, relieving Bart of the same, pissin his pants, I mean, if AM is sincerely concerned about peasant egyptians, this should be a cake walk. what missing? Fair comment only through the eyes of a lay informed. No missiles please.

fifth, the rest can get back to broken promise rants but this is the mother of all, who done it's.

sixth, It amazes that truthers, hyped by many, can find physic Phd abundant, to prove their case, conclusively, I mean inconclusively, which ever, yet AM cant put it all on a silver platter for wet pants bart, with AM's predictive powers, with a team to take on TBTF. What sprott, surrounded by golden coins cant afford THE TEAM in the bugs v TBTJ match. Something dont square up. whats missing?

seventh, JPM claiming clients as hedges to massively naken short, as a defense, dont square up, and presumptively cant be used for dumping and price drops, AM should know this. heeelllllooooooo ......

eight, Im totally lost, with the root mean FU squares of things, totally, as presented tonight, surrounded by fizzled-out ranting rocket jocks, and personally just dont have market training as yet to enter the primortal soup, stinking for an answer.

ninth, will keep on stacking, totally, lost, un-squared, until hell freezes over.

tenth, thanks turd, you made my day and night. atta-boy

Bugzy, most dazed and confused, like me ....

Phyzz off mkt...

Sorry to say re: an advertiser here but, bad experience with Merit ...

Talked with a rep Thurs 1/2 hr before closing. He said he'd email the address to which to send a check and the deal would be made at the price when they get it. Backed that up with an email that I'm interested to which I got one of their auto "Thanks for contacting us .. " emails but nothing more Thurs night or Friday. No phone call, no other email. Also decided not to go with Merit because I found they're in my state, Cali, so there'd be sales tax added

Looking around, I decided to go with Northwest Mint's stagecoach silver bars & placed an order online. My confirm notice says this buy done 4/17/13 would be shipped on 5/2/13

I BTFD and now there'll be another # of silver ounces off the market

Has Ivars or anyone else done/seen the Fibonacci analysis on Au and Ag? Top to "Bottom" would appear to represent a retracement of around 33%, which would be spot on would it not?
