SRex,

I'm heading out for a bit and won't be reading or posting. Good stuff up there.

Hopefully, you will put it to good use. smiley

I do want to make one thing clear right now. When I said Joe Public "can't understand the implication of something as simple as a sub-prime mortgage with a built in rate hike without a matching wage hike how will they wrap their minds around the FRN IOU?" I did not choose words carefully. That happens a lot when I post here because when I post here it's typically just before I go to bed and I get sloppy.

I meant to say did not, against their own interest, rather than can not. I don't know if they were uneducated, didn't read the contract, were unwise etc. I don't think they were or are idiots. I do think they were keen to get hands on a house and prone to spending more time on the freedom side than on the responsibility side. I do think that reading contracts, laws, statutes and further comprehending them is not something the general public is set up well to do in the first place and in my experience most people do not find it interesting. FWIW I often take the time to read twice a document that requires my signature and am regularly teased about same. This is relevant to my opinion that they won't wrap their minds around the FRN IOU.

Wonderful. Now let's make the whole “thing” clear, in hopes that your grasp of Context continues to increase properly.

It is not wise to speak in terms of absolute, especially on matters which are beyond our control, as such indeed comes off as “high horse”, elitist, or snobbish. To wit:

Y'know SR the general public is never going tounderstand what you know about 'money'. And they aren't going to understand about the phonyness of tax on phony money.”

For one who “reads” the Bible, it might help to better understand the Context of Proberbs 16:33, so as to recognize and thus understand the tenor of my response:

'Perhaps, OR

Perhaps not.

Either way, that is simply not my call to make.' <<<<<<<<<<<winkangel

It is not wise to make snap judgments, or otherwise utter things, which we do not fully comprehend, in haste, since our Creator Sees and Hears All, and HE is in heaven, while we're merely on earth.

Or would you like me to explain to you the Context of Ecclesiastes 5:2 as well?

Again, Knowledge is Infinite, Mortal Life is NOT.

One might suspect that most would thus primarily focus on learning that which impacts their lives the most, whether in this world or the next, and do what ever it takes to fully comprehend the proper Context of same, so that they will not wind up being buffalo'd, b.s.'d, bullied, fleeced, hoodwinked, and/or otherwised duped and led down the path to their own demise.devilcryingdevil

It's pretty simple.

Nevertheless, one indeed still has to decide for themselves to ultimately make that Free Will Choice of their own volition. angel

Cheers,

"Watch for the day..."

Hopefully for some, not on a three day holiday weekend, when U.S. Markets do not open until Tuesday! laugh

Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims. Watch for the day when it bounces, marked, ‘Account overdrawn.’ – “Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged”

Wall Street had been doing business with pieces of paper; and now someone asked for a dollar, and it was discovered that the dollar had been mislaid.” Upton Sinclair

"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."- Anonymous

You should be more than aware that Gold is in fact,far more rare, ie less common, thus appearing substantially less in the earth's crust than is Silver, ergo, due to its high value per weight density, the world over all tends to favor Gold.

Or did you learn nothing from the Comstock Lode episode when the earth was puking Silver out of the ground at over 100+ to 1 GSR ratio, causing massive counterfeiting of Silver Dollars since it could be acquired for 25 cents per ounce in Gold terms, thereby mitigating the "Gold Standard"?

and this.....South Africa's

and this.....

South Africa's AMCU union votes to strike in gold sector

https://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/11/us-safrica-gold-amcu-idUSKCN0S50Q820151011

"If you look at the platinum strike we didn't go on strike when we got the strike certificate. We have to use our heads, and not our stomachs," Mathunjwa said. "That has to be taken to structures of AMCU."

Only at Sibanye does the AMCU have a clear path to a strike that would not be deemed wildcat.

The Chamber of Mines has said Harmony and AngloGold will go to court to prevent AMCU from striking because they have signed wage deals with three other unions representing most of their workers.

The industry says this means they can apply the same agreement to the rest of their workforce. This happened two years ago in the gold sector, when AMCU was forced to accept agreements signed by other unions.

Suit yourself Brother Hammer,

however count your lucky stars that you will be elsewhere on Christmas Day this year when there is hell to pay,

and that little pommy ingrate bastage finds his daimler converted into a skateboard, and if his big sister dares to open her mouth, she will quickly find herself repatriated. laugh

The fault and frustration was strictly mine. I am sorry, I apologize for the outburst.

Your attempt at sarcasm and humor was actually taken in the spirit it was given, and Lord knows it's not the first time I have had to deal with this little black sheep baby of the family.

Go figure. Brilliant, charming, debonaire, can make friends with anyone at the drop of a hat, good looking ladies' man / heart breaker, and oh did I mentioned spoiled?

For crying out loud business is business, and punctuality, responsibility / reliability matters, and seriously, who reasonably expects to drag out and milk a “mid-life crisis” for a dozen years into their mid 50's, much less always expect his big sister to come through and smooth things out for him?

Marriage. “It's a package deal”. devil

At least that's what I've been told, and yet cannot find such expressed anywhere within the Contract. laugh

Onwards and

Onwards and upwards.....

Meanwhile,

WSJ’s John Carney has a report out on a very important story. The plan of the Germans to audit and physically inspect all their gold.

Writes Carney:

A German federal court has said that country’s central bank should conduct annual audits and physically inspect its gold reserves worldwide, including gold in the custody of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In addition to the FRBNY, Bundesbank gold is stored in London, Paris and Frankfurt.

For decades, the Bundesbank has relied on written confirmation of its gold holdings in London, Paris and New York. According to the report from the German audit court, the last time Bundesbank officials physically inspected the central banks gold holdings was, well, never.

In August – the latest month

In August – the latest month for which statistics are currently available – at least two central banks bought more gold. The People’s Bank of China bought 16 metric tons of gold in August, bringing its official gold holdings to 1,694 tons. Also, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation bought nearly twice as much, 31 metric tons – its highest one-month purchase since March and fourth largest in recent history.

It’s interesting to note that both of these nations were America’s two biggest enemies in the Cold War and both nations are flexing their muscles on the world scene: Russian forces have recently been deployed in Syria, and China is defending its disputed properties in the South China Sea, while engaging in alleged cyber-warfare, piracy of copyrighted property, currency manipulation and other financial shenanigans.

China is also making an attempt to be the gold trading center of the world. Transfers from Switzerland (a traditional gold trading center in Europe) to China are part of the global gold migration from the West to the East. China is also absorbing much of the gold sold by U.S. ETF traders. Sales in the new Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGE) exceed trading volumes at any other global gold market. Over 65 metric tons of gold were withdrawn in the week ending September 25, making a year-to-date total of 1,958.7 tons, an annual rate of nearly 2700 tons – which represents about 90% of the newly-mined gold totals this year.
