I cleared out @ swaps. I saw the spike into Asia. Plus  I want to see wholesale numbers and what Fisher has to say.

Following news that an 11th hour attempt to resolve the budget impasse between Obama, Reid and Boehner has failed ...


and the converse is.....

    ...when the budget does get passed all the hysteria will pass too and PM's will crash back to pre-hysteria levels....


something else is at play, like, say, war(s) in the middle east and stuff like that there.

Silver just hit 40.005 for May.  Watched it as it happened. 

Once again, I'm happy and sad.  Happy to watch my account grow.  Sad that it's at the death of the dollar.

The US dollar is 0.85 ounces of silver.

Federal Reverse Notes are not US dollars.

Each Morgan dollar contains 0.7735 troy ounces of silver. That goes for the Peace dollar too. Now, the Silver Eagle is a full troy ounce.

Add another hour for the increase in your grocery bill. And, don't forget to add 6 more hours so you can hedge inflation with the purchase of an ounce of silver. Oh, and another hour for the increase in property tax. What! I can't work over 34 hours a week? Wtf! Guess I'm gonna have to work a second job at BK just to pay my health insurance.

Ah, the Hunt high was $50.

During the Hunt brothers' accumulation of the precious metal, prices of silver futures contracts and silver bullion during 1979 and 1980 rose from $11 an ounce in September 1979 to $50 an ounce in January 1980

Hey RR,  Can't tell you how many months ago, I read the nice entreaty by one of the old hands- for the old posters to get back on Zerohedge.  I discovered ZH , I guess, about a year ago, and, I am embarassed to admit, that I took to posting here, like a teen takes to foreplay lubed with buttered popcorn - I loved, beyond compare, this community.  Then, I don't exactly knbow why - well, I was called a sociopath one too many times, I stopped participating.  Of course, as I suspect, I have followed very closely, every day, just without participating - I think there are many old posters doing this.  What I want to say is -  I want to thank people like Rocky Racoon - that have soldiered on.  I  used to say, how much Cog Dis, Do Chen,  Chumbawumba - all of them, mean to me each day. You are all very much appreciated.  My sense is, the discourse HAS deteriorated some - there simply do not seem to be as many knowledgebale people particpating - that being said, we all really do, just wnat the conversation to continue - the Math Man, the Jon Nadler - and, sucks, I can't even remember the names of some of the trolls that preceded them- but we need you all- we need the conversation to continue.  Tyler has done a magnificent job of nurturing this place to mainstream presence- WITHOUT compromiing ANY integrity.  

I wish some of the older posters would participate - I have so sadly watched MsCreant's post become fewer and fewer (I'm melting, I'm melting).    My point is, ZH is such a lone voice- becoming more valuable each day, and let's all make whatever effort we can to keep this alive.  The discourse is getting weaker, not stronger - and we need to Man Up.   Again I thank Racky, and Do Chen and Cog Dis, and Colonel Cooper- and, JFC -  Turd.      And, Banzai, whoever THE FUCK you are in real life - even if you are some Asperger's freako scriptkiddie -  keep it the fuck up -  your image/cultural knowledge is perfect, and your skillset Bespoke.  You, and your audience, are bobbing along in sync-  keep doing exactly what you are doing- and, if you ever get the sense that maybe you have pushed it a little too far-  just step down on that pedal.   I want to see your mind producing images that are as easy as a greased dildo exiting from a seizing meth ho's butt.

I think that WB7 is, in real life, still WB7.

There's no way that a site this good will fail to attract more than its share of trolls, shills, freaks, and twits.  All that is necessary for evil posters to win is for good posters to do nothing.  Don't let the illegitimi carborundum you down.

Now, please excuse me.  I learned from one of the paid establishment shills around here that I can dig up silver for 5 bucks an ounce!   I'm going out to get a shovel.


And ... Fed delenda est.

I'm glad you're still here.  Perhaps, and I say this at the risk of incurring some wrath (junks), the problem is the nature and quantity of articles which are "off topic".   The depth of articles into "real" economics and finance are seemingly less encountered.   Maybe it's just me, but I recall having to look up half the terminology used in articles.   It was quite an education.  Not so much any more?  Like I say, maybe it's just me.
