    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...

Congratulations Tyler, you were mentioned on the Rush Limbaugh show for your very informative Zero Hedge blog.  Rush is my favorite talk radio hosts and has about 20 million listeners.  I am sure traffic to ZH will increase.  Many thanks for the great work you do here.

Racist? Hardly. Disagreeing with socialist ghetto dwellers is not racism. Failure to have sympathy for poor ethnic groups is not racism either.

Fascist? No doubt at all about that.

Idiot? Hm......he sure made a lot of money for being such an idiot!

People who "make" money can't be idiots?  

The world was a better place when he was introducing the KC Royals.  The fact that a handful of corporate banker-gangsters will stand by an ignorant bloviating drug-addict hardly makes him special.

Good whores whore themselves out successfully - doesn't make 'em bright.  Just makes them good whores.

+100, it has always suprised me that many of those that comment on ZH, support those idealogs that get their funding from the same people that support the people casuing the problem. That is, anyone in government, dem or repub. But then again, they all come up with such clever names to fling at eachother, monkey throwing shit!

Name calling is required in 41% of the posts on this site -- sorry, it seems to be a requirement.   And marginalizes the site. 

But it gives you a pretty good look at the intellect level of people in general -- fairly hollow arguments. 

But that's ok.  Just need to factor that abundant character trait in making money trading and investing.  Sadly though, many of these folks will expect someone else to take care of them (and TPTB are inclined to provide).

You know what, This is the one thing I hate about ZH. There are people out there with such a political bent. Who cares if you like Rush Limbaugh or not? Its going to bring more traffic to ZH. If he was mentioned on Daily Kos, would it make you feel any better? It wouldnt bother me. Who cares what anyone thinks, a win is a win.

Lets see, They have had a republican, and a democrat in the White house, however I see the same policies. The Tea party? It will be the same, trust me. So throw away your party politics, and embrace your new-found identity, one far removed from the idiocy and insanity that's sending the whole world headlong into the abyss.

He's doing fine. Playing basketball at the white house, bailing out Wall Street, bombing Libya, and faking raids into Pakistan.

I believe it was coaine and heroin, not oxy. He's only half-white. His father is Kenyan.

Funny how people are so obsessed and raging at the talking heads on CNN/Fox/MSNBC/radio when the real enemy is in government screwing us over. None of those talking heads started wars or approved the bailouts.

And you need to stop diminishing the role played by the psychopathic banker-gangsters, who have run this system into a state of terminal decay.  You treat death panels for grandma as a fait accompli without even approaching to the root of our economic crisis.

Later you backtrack in order to establish some anti-banker credibility - that's not the point.

Petty partisan politics is where everyone fails.  Either you're an individualist, or a Party member.

"One of the websites that I keep track of on matters of economics is a place called ZeroHedge.com, and there's a poster there by the name of Tyler Durden who occasionally posts some interesting stuff.  For example, "Today's Bureau of Labor Statistics number 244,000 jobs is great until you exclude the 62,000 from McDonalds hirings, and 175,000  from the Birth Death Adjustment." The net new jobs in the private sector is 7,000.  That's the net new jobs.  "

Oh please God no!  Do not need more idiots here that believe in political divisions that were created to divert the attetion of the masses while being robbed by both sides. 

I miss when this site's commentariat would focus on the financial aspect of the worlds problems with good debate.  Now too many people that are left/right wing nut jobs are here and blame politicians.  All the good debate is gone.  I do not know why those with strong political ties/opinions come here in that all analysis has no policital motivation behind it.  This site is about educating/disseminating information in a neutral light. 

Speaking of which, the comments lately, remind me of the stuff I read on here http://www.pwsnt.com/

They alone want to kill off most of the federal government. I daresay they would end federal income taxes if they could get away with it.

There are real differences. Long live the tea party!

Those misguided morons would probably try to institute a flat tax. Then we could have almost equal taxes liabilities with a vast difference in the distribution of wealth. Hopefully after the flat tax is instituted we could invade a country that had nothing to do with 9/11(clearly a government conspiracy) then give Haliburton a no bid oil contract.

Rush is ok, been listening to him on and off for 19 years now. He used to be only source of non liberal spin around before the the Internet web.

I doubt that most of his listeners would keep u with zh info, too over their heads. But still good to get mention. Good job!

Rush Limbaugh is as much a fool as any of them.  Any 'edge' he once had has been dulled by too much food, drugs and adulation.  He is neither right nor left wing.  He is a slightly louder mainstream member of the "chicken" wing.

As much as I hate the financial gangsters it is tough to conjure up a lot of sympathy for countries like Ireland and Greece.  I think they should default.  But let us not forget that they were nothing more than HELOC'ers on a massive scale.  They liberated their equity and now they can't pay.  The stories out of Ireland in 2006 made Florida look sane.

did they buy the debt or did the countries up tot their eyeballs lending to these countries buy the now worthless debt? I say the latter.  That makes this more about "scents" than "cents."  Ask for another bailout...and another and another--and then marry some rich guy (girl?) and call it a life.

And so we now know and enter the true end game.... Where the bankers take posession of countries. 

It all makes sense now. I read an article that mentioned this a few months ago, and thought it was a very interesting take... now it's coming to fruition...

Debt terrorism has been pushed on more and more... finally the banks swoop in to take "their property" and we are all f*cked.  Watch for this more, now that it's real

Good luck all...

"end" game?  this has been the IMF's pursuit for 50 years.  They have busted out so many sovereigns with debtmoney...actually this crap goes back to the South Seas Bubble and even further.  The Bank of England's very existence is for this purpose.  It's to lend money at compound interest to people who DON'T UNDERSTAND MATH.  That is the entire point.

Take a look at the role of the usury clan in the weimar period.  They came out the other side owning the entire Reich.  Inflation then deflation...jfc, Thomas Jefferson was talking about this crap over 200 years ago.

Why does everyone THINK that the usury clan has been so historically hated?  Why does everyone THINK usury and lending at interest was prohibited for so long?
