    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

As soon as Mussslims are not declared US citizens without a Certificate of Live Birth then we can worry about the Jews. Anti semtic BS at your link bubble head.

I don't know what to think.  I read the headline and thought, "Fuck me, what's happening to pork bellies?" (http://bit.ly/98OYwH).  I read the article, and was relieved to see it was not about dire consequences for the bacon makin industry.  However, CIA/Google partnership?...I'm back to, "Fuck me". 

Completely agree that the nation is shifting away from wanting to be told what to do.  Or, at the very least, the gap between those who want to be controlled and those that don't is being brought to the forefront of everyday life.  Lines are being drawn and sides taken.  There is an individualist revival in the works.

The actual and clear link between reading the Koran and 9-11 is the only link needed. No intolerant , racist, violent, hated filled, women raping Muslims and 9-11 would never have happened. The Koran is terrorist training manual.

'freedom', you're right... but it's no worse than the cock-mutilation cult's theological opus or that of the Jeebus death-cult (which itself was born out of the political manouevrings of a disaffected group of cock-slashers).

Frankly, I think it speaks ill of our species fact that some of us still think that we ought to bow and scrape to some primitive tribalist Stone Age fairy tale in which a mystery Sky Wizard tells some shepherd to slice the end off his wang (in exchange for which he will father the Master Race)... it wouldn't pass muster as a plot for Family Guy (with Peter Griffin as Avram - the sister-fucking wellspring of cock-mutilation everywhere).

So y'know - be careful when you sling shit at religions from within the asylum: if you subscribe to any of them yourself, you're asking for trouble. ALL of them are insane, and devotees of ALL of them should be mocked mercilessly until they are ashamed to mention it in front of the non-mentally-ill. And if any of them claim special insight (or land ownership based on a deed granted by a shrub during a hallucination by some escaped slave 3000 years ago), shake your head, laugh at them and walk away.

Let's have no more Master Race/Gott Mit Uns talk by ANYBODY... it never ends well: hubris begets nemesis (and the world is still waiting for the metanoia).

Actually the whole country is about to have a "fuck me" moment about bacon. Pork bellies re indeed in dire straights and most of the industry is raising prices on bacon across the board. When your input is at $150/CWT vs anr average of $92/CWT things are not good.


Hormel Foods is loosing $0.60/lb on bacon right now. Shutting down production lines is cheaper than actually selling product right now.

You should raise your own hogs.  You can then produce all the tender bacon you can stand to eat.  And you can feed  bankers, politicians, and other authority-type figures to the hogs to dispose of their otherwise-worthless bodies!  It's win-win.

Ah, yes. And never drive too far without proper planning. Pre-chill the 6-pack and roll the joints. Seat belts...??? fuck 'em. What was considered normal routine...at least to some.....is now viewed as criminal deviant behavior of the highest order. Just take a belt to your deserving little Johnny and get locked up as a child abuser. Instead you now must submit him to counseling and a government approved drugging program to get his ass away from the video games. And we wonder why little Johnny got so fat, stupid, lazy and fucked up....??

The Mommy State has always failed to protect us from ourselves. They've just gradually increased the number of laws and rules for you to break as a means of stealing more out of your wallet in fines and taxes and keeping the lawyers busy.......and building more power over the individual in the name of greater civic good. It's a hoax.

Seriously, Votewithabullet, are you being facetious, or are you truly that abysmally ignorant?

You seriously aren't aware that the multinationals run America?  You are unaware that the US military is protecting the the Chinese companies in Afghanistan which are mining copper there?

You truly are unaware that the oil and gas pipelines going across Afghanistan will end in India, to supply the multinationals' production facilties there?

You truly don't kow that USAID builds infrastructure in foreign countries which is then utilized by the multinationals (or transnationals if you prefer) to offshore their jobs there, and to create the new jobs there?

You truly are unaware of the financial-intelligence complex which runs America?

You truly don't know that the nonissue the corporate nonnews media keeps spewing at us -- the supposed "mosque" in New York City, seveal blocks from the old WTC -- is to misdirect attention, as usual, from the real story: 

the SIGIR report mentioning the unaccounted for $8.7 billion, while so far they have audited the "accounted for" $400 million, and found approximately one-quarter of it ripped off?

And how that "Army of One" now appears to be an army of embezzlers; and how the Marines are looking for a "few good men" because they've got too many embezzlers?


You are being facetious and really just goofing on us, huh?

I hate to read too much into some of the commodities spikes in the last couple months. Couldn't it just be a result of some big players making big bets in small markets in order to make up for losses in the first half of the year?

No it's the first drops of rain hitting the ground before the big storm unleashes the deluge. Think of each little spike as a drop of rain. They're going to start coming harder and faster until it's nothing but water pouring out of the sky only it won't be water but money chasing ecvery available hard asset it can get.

Why is there a major mil inst in tejas, South, and WHY, was a Northern Command Central put into place, just in the past 2yrs?.

40-50k troopies at the ready..w/ all the hdwre.

This is a set up, been a set up.........for a fk up.

And guess who the recips are.

1st one no countie.

Google, is like 1984, it tries to garner info, and force you to use them at every turn, they have lawsuits, and soverigns investigating them globally.

A BIG dog in the USA  on Drudge the other day, advised young folks to get a frkin name change, if they wanted their lives back, esp later on.

I've been joking about the $40 Happy Meal for the last 9 years.

As in the punchline "We'll finally break even on our speculative condo investments when a McD Happy Meal costs $40."  (thoughts along the line of a deflationary period with some small spike in hyperinflation at some point)

That always went over well at the condo board meetings' coffee machine.  I stopped attending those... macabre.

Madhedgefundtrader posted a thread about the Economist magazine's Big Mac index... I remember that index because I travelled extensively the year I took my first macro econ course.  I was amazed at the price of Big macs abroad.  More amazed there were lines out the door at lunch hour to eat that crap.

Think about it this way... you could have bought a US$1000000 whole life insurance policy in 1990, and thought it would have covered the expenses for your spouse and kids in event of your untimely death.  For 90% of the life insurance sales agents in the United States in 1990, selling a big whale $1MM policy covered your nut for a month.

You can now buy US$500000 whole life policies over TV ads that have almost no underwriting as long as you are not a smoker , obese or a diabetic.  The remaining poor sap life insurance sales agents today have to sell one big whale US$4MM a month to cover their nut.  And there are almost 75% less life insurance agents in the USA today than in the year 2000.

$40 Happy Meal ... hyperinflation

I follow the Big Mac index as well.  Big Mac's lack fungability, perhaps the most important word in wealth preservation.

But the life insurance thing ... are you saying that there is a significant decrease in economic activity?  And that when economic activity occurs, the value of the transactions are severely decreased making it more difficult to earn money?
