    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...

Sunday for some is Tuesday for others.

There is no coming off the accelerator for now. We are now in the grip of Days of Thunder.

The rage with-out is just a reflection of the rage with-in. We've been trapped for so long.

And yet, freedom, the way we think about it, may be awhole other animal than we imagine. Not all rainbows and peace.

Live every day as if your hair are on fire, paraphrasing a famous samurai.

Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn to ash, let the waters rise and submerge this rat infested world we call Earth.  The reset button is commencing.  I hope you are ready.

I did some silver pattern comparison with its own timing as basis, since every commodity etc has difference reaction times after crisis from cooperation to decooperation. This graph for prices 2011-2013 is what I came up with, it seems to be peaking at 45 USD at April 1st and sudden drop to 25 USD when I expect oil will suck money out of silver and possibly gold. Oil is useful commodity, once it becomes scarce ( no fly zone over Libya=war in Libya=war in Arab worlds= was in oil producing region), people will try to secure it, not silver.

After that, quite reasonable prices between 25-32 in 2011-April 2012. After that, silver starts to go up. Either supply problem, or Obamas USD devaluation plan in action ( or threat of devaluation plan), or both supply and USD devaluation threat. Looking at stock market prediction I do not think devaluation will be real, but attempts to devaluate the USD to do something as second recession will hit in Q1 2012 may lead to silver price spike .

Or, rumours the FED is going to be totally changed/liquidated under the government which will win 2012 elections.Not Obama or regular GOP. That would lead to scooping of silver and gold.

That explains a spike during election time. And afterwards high level as e.g. gold standard is reintroduced at different higher level .

Meanwhile the western media and Al Jazeera show images of protestors "violently" throwing stones. In Libya it is always protestors being shot at, which group has a pocket full of US dollars is the question I ask.

Good job of manufacturing consent state department!

Bahrain and Middle East bubbling.

Japan need to replace lost nuclear power with oil and gas power ASAP.

Perfect storm for oil prices.

The U.S. government is impotent to stop any of this.  That's what happens when no one wants the POS FED dollar as a bribe anymore.    More unintended consequences, huh Ben?

I hope they get rid of the bastards at the top and tell the US Navy to get their shit and go home. Then the Saudis are overdue for some of this good stuff too.

March 20 2011 may indeed be the day, who would have thought, but with so many things happening over the last few days.. I think its better to give this date some serious thought and prepare - Good luck!

What "social fabric" ?

That region has been in conflict with itself since the Earth was created.

The middle eastern social fabric IS conflict.

+1 bob.  I think they mean the scab of lapdog dictatorship and petrodollars that has been in place all of 60 years and is about to be, uh, dislodged violently.  an unpleasant analogy but none the less accurate.

So when will Hilary Clinton come on TV saying the Saudi public has a right to peacefully protest as she has done for Libya and other Middle East countries? Oh, wait, can you say NEVER?

When it's the Saudi's, the right course of action is for the government "to seek to establish peace, and clamp down on unruly radical elements".

I am sure the failure of the Day of Rage last Friday corresponded with the fact the Japanese earthquake dominated the news cycle.  Since all the protest signs are in English and the protesters all seem to be willing to speak with reporters in English, why protest and risk your life if no one is going to see?  If a protester falls in Saudi Arabia, but there is no 24 hour international coverage, does it make a sound? 


Try again another day.

Gee, isn’t Bahrain where the Saudi Oil is pumped out to the Tankers? Isn’t the rumored Globalist plan to cut off the Saudi Oil? How many Blackwater/XE/SAS/Delta Force guys are standing around dressed in the local garb ready to sabotage the pumping facilities? What did Kissinger say a few weeks ago about Egypt? “… just the first scene in the first act.” or to that effect. A palatable theater must be presented to the peasants so they will go along with the ruse... And we’re the peasants.

You got it.  Soros and Buffet got behind Obama with exhorbiant amounts of campaign financing so their banker and elitist friends could have a free hand in bringing all the world's peasants under heel.  If you notice Obama and Holder are showing  absolutely no leadership in bringing justice to the citizens. They never will.   They are complicit in the financial crimes being perpetrated on citizens the world over.

Tense INDIAN, I honestly don't think ANYone is timing this exploding volcano.  You give the Western black ops too much credit.  They don't have what it takes to turn the lava flow in the willed direction. 

Western powers will just continue to wring their hands in public and try to project the illusion of control.

Saudi Arabia found the answer...staring at impending chaos they immediately bought a U.S. marketing company and changed the potential Friday disaster into A Day of Wage and gave away 37 billion dollars.  If momma's happy everybody's happy.
