Thanks Dyna mo hum and NEKO

I sleep well at night, so to speak. I also think that if I'm wrong, and things really are wonderful thanks to Hope n Change and The Fed, then I can afford to 'throw my money away'. I mean the stock market always goes up and the government will take care of me.

I think I just threw up in m mouth a little bit typing that last bit.

That's some real sanity you laid out there. Some here will not receive that message real well. But I get it. Every thing goes up and down. That makes life fun. Rock on!

We all know where ends. Ask

We all know where ends. Ask yourself would you rather be able to add cheap metal to you stack or stick your chest out and say "I told you so"?


That's a forced choice, so that's unacceptable. How about I do BOTH? I told you so... I told you somewhere back in 2011 and in one of the comments dated around July of 2012 that this was going to happen. AND, I added a nominal amount to my stack today. Good thing I got back in town last night. I told you before, and I'll say it again. May 2014... If I can't hold onto my stack until then, then I will simply end it right there to leave my body and detonate the Earth's core. No more mortal being experiments...

Foolish me...

Well said Mariposa de Oro (Golden Butterfly :-)) it just depends how you look at things.

If you have worked for promissory notes called currency and had the good sense to convert some of them into PMs, then you can consider that is now safe. The rest of your assets are vulnerable and can even disappear.

The financial outlook is clearly deteriorating and I would rather suffer a small loss at this stage than risk loosing everything (eg. Cyprus).

So if my small stack is worth less this week, am I a fool? Obviously the fools in the world will say Yes.

Poor fools.

To the doubters

Speaking for myself, a 51 year old female who earns about $50k a year. I have no formal training in anything financial. Back in 2006, I 'took the red pill', and realized that I had better change my financial ways. I made some major changes to my life that not one family member or friend was supportive of. It enabled me to be come debt free as of Dec 2012 and build a small bit of savings. That savings is in various forms. I LOVE shinney metal to both wear and fondle. Let's leave it at that for opsec sake. Like many of you, I bought at higher prices and am underwater. I could easily get caught up in the 'woes-me' but I stop and think about why I did what I did; make major life changes, get out of debt, make some purchases, learn to become more self sufficient, etc. In the years since taking the read pill, not one economic and political condition has improved, at least in my view. All the reasons for my taking the actions I did, still hold. I don't know what will happen in the future. I'll I know is that I made the best decisions I could with the information available to me. You know what? I'm still much better off than if I had done what everyone else thought I should do. Whenever the sheep around me see stocks go down, they just point out that the market always goes up and it always go down. I'm guessing au and ag will do the same. If you're really unhappy with your purchase you can sell lower or you can sell higher. I suggest you think about why you bought in the first place and then consider your options.

I think you are missing the

I think you are missing the point the hat eating although CRAZY was Turd showing humility, as for the people who are deep underwater, well it's pretty bad, no one can say otherwise, but you either wallow in despair or see the craziness in all of this.

Thanks for the video and being a man of your word (although there was never a question in my mind). However, I think you jumped the gun. Didn't you say at one time that the $22 had to be a closing price?

I leave you guys alone...

....for an hour to work out and buy 2 million ounces of gold and I come back to a totally different mind set.

Steady there!
