    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?

The most amazing thing is that all this stuff is slowly going to erode confidence in the entire monetary system the more and more they have to do it.  Talk about trading the future for the present.


Why does anyone work when some entity can just helo-drop more than any large group of individuals will ever make without doing a damn thing?

What is the point of banks heding equity market risk, when there is no such thing as equity market risk?

You're right.

They disable market risk by taking more risk on themselves.  Ironic.

Why would any one "donate" to Japan, when they can just print or raise debt to pay for the whole thing themselves?

At least the BofJ needs to disclose how much and what they are doing with the money.  The Fed?  Nothing and no audits...

you'd think they could find better uses for the money than to prop up the financial markets? after all..they do have a country in need of a few repairs and it's not like the stock market is going to "pitch in" to help.

Gold trying to break back above $1,400, but keeps getting slapped in the face. Sooner or later, of this I am certain.

The leverage the bankers are using to free up all of this cash must be coming from 'gold' reserves.  The global finance system must have gold on loan at at least one hundred to one by now.  If there was ever a time for a squeeze....

My kind of guy.

Among the 75 exhibits presented by the prosecution were Liberty Dollars, a T-shirt screened "U.S. Mint can bite me!" and production items confiscated from the privately owned Sunshine Mint in Idaho, where Liberty Dollars were produced under contract.

Any attempt to do door to door searches for any form of contraband, especially something as harmless as gold or silver, will result in nothing but a bloodbath.  It's not really worth it.

Easier to just remonetize gold and seize it from the banks after the sheeple deposit their gold and silver there.

I don't think they are going to last long enough.  This IS the endgame.

Yes, that is exactly what happened here in Australia in 1931 or '32. There was no grand edict requiring citizens to hand in their gold under penalty, the goverment just turned all bank deposits denominated in gold into deposits denominated in Pounds.
