For your listening pleasure and to pass the time while we watch miners show a bit of strength this morning.

If a crypto evaporates in the forrest....

...does anybody hear it?

Well, I surmise that the answer is no, cause I ain't seen none of the daily crypto-pumpin here today.

Did you hear about the lazy-ass crypto-freak who was to lazy to do laundry? He bought himself a pair of crypto-shorts...didn't even have to put them on, cause they were - like - crypto. Well, I do believe that he found out yesterday just how effective those shorts were.

I've been laughing my ass off since yesterday, even woke up laughing in the middle of the night. But, ya know, I'm all depressed because my stack is flat. Well maybe flat in fiat, but it sure is shiny!

Enjoy the ride bubble-heads.

By the way...

Apologies for the "cave-like" audio on my part- who knew that recording from my bunker, the wall stacks of 400 oz London Good Delivery bars on every side would provide such poor acoustics. Live and learn. ;-)

I look forward to listening this evening

I got two cold ones in the fridge waiting for me tonight.

@Pining 4 the Fjords

You had me at "two-drink" . . .

Seriously, that was an excellent podcast and definitely worth everyone's time to listen -- then think about for the next few days. When new ideas/perspectives are absorbed, they often need to "cure" for a few days to reach full effect. Tomorrow, I'll re-listen to glean more wisdom at the feet of the masters . . .

I haven't been a Turdvillian (?) long enough to vouch for Craig's integrity when faced with choices that might benefit him personally, at Turdville's expense, so I'll take your word for it. I do observe a guy who's thoughtful, intelligent, passionate, humorous (not a bad trait to have, these days!), observant, and always entertaining. The combination of Craig, and the TF community, has seen me through some pretty dark days, investing wise, although I feel the worst is yet to come. I feel very fortunate to have found fellow travelers along this very long and winding road . . .

Kudos to you and Dr. Jerome!

So miners strongly strong

but gold itself up 12 cents.. Just like the old days when miners led the actual metals. I'll take a revisit.

Jun 22, 2017 - 2:39pm

Yes, this is a two-drink podcast!

Thanks, fellas- we had fun doing it! Next time we will record later in the day so the hosts can have a cocktail... poor planning on my part. For those that might have time to listen this evening, topics include:

Trading metals, a few rules of survival

Prepping and the 'big picture'

Family and TEOTGKE

TFMR and the community of Turdites

The End of Manipulation

Ted Butler tells how to end the obvious rigging of the silver market by having the enforcement division of the CFTC not allow the banks to add any additional shorts.

The Hunt brothers corner of the silver market, where they controlled 1/6 the amount of silver as J P Morgan, was ended by prohibiting any buying. That worked and bankrupted the Hunts.

So not allowing any new shorts would end the manipulation.

Will it happen?

Somewhere, over the rainbow, blue birds fly.
