    The price of gold shot up this week, and silver moved proportionally. Headlines are screaming for gold to hit $10,000 or $50,000. Does this alleged new bull market have legs?

It's all good.

The Bernake said they have not spent any money, they have made money.

128 Billion, on a 500 Trillion investment...........

For what assets of equal or greater value?.

Hell of a deal.

As long as he is the lone madman, we will get QE and debt ceiling raised..

His majesty said no debt ceiling raise, is like spending spree and not pay bill.

This 'Fisher' is clearly a terrorists. Incarcerate the usurper!

We must keep the uneducated and unindoctrinated lunatics and conspiracy theorists in a vacume and under control.

lunatics that read independent blogs and buy silver.

Yes, it's tradition and it's also one big ponzi scheme by the banking cartel federal reserve.

It's sort of like a convicted ponzi schemer bidding on his own assets, at autcion, when they get auctioned to pay the victims. Oh wait, that really happened today.

Fisher will always vote with Ben.  His public statements mean nothing.  He is just the "hedge" to today's Bernanke "dovish surprise" in case Bernanke has to flip flop.

There's only 3 possibilities:

1)  He's a sociopath working for the nobility that owns the country.

2)  He's a true-believer in a failed economic religion.

3)  He knows there's no solution but is doing anything he can to postpone the inevitable.


Personally,  I think it's number 2.

number 3. but it is the same result anyway.

If you believe it's number 2, then you'll need to come up with a good reason for the bernak jitters...  zealots don't twitch and he ain't going to win an academy award.

There are countless first class academics who are extremely dumb when it comes to understanding the real world.  Part of the reason why they retreated into academia was because they found it too hard to apply their theories to the practical and chaotic.  I often think that Bernanke has a form of Stockholm Syndrome, where he's been kidnapped out of his quiet cosy life at Princeton by a bunch of manipulative money men, who he is utterly reliant upon for confirmation his theories can work in real time.  He seems to get flashes of doubt every time he speaks, like maybe they are using me, but he does not have the strength to break free.

+1.  Nice comment.  I tend to agree.  Probably kidnapped by his own greed, since he must have been promised wealth for himself and his family for generations to come.

Carpet Bag.

Carpet Bomb.

And that Kaiser Soze movie is a close tie with The Crying Game for Massive Movie TIT. Twist In Tale that is. 

Of course they are all method acting out a script LH. The scouting system we see in major league sports is a pale shadow of the one in place for these POSitions.

The Rhodes Scolarship is the one where they get the Indians. Off to Ox-Ford or Cambridge to get Globalized. It is considered the highest student honour in India.

And there you have it.

However, if I ever hear somebody use the word slilch, I will know they are a fellow ZH'er.  Maybe it could be our code word?
