Silver is above $36 again. I expect it to be slammed down again when New York opens. They've all been on vacation in the Hampton's so Silver and Gold went higher.

They are trying to pay for their own protection with the sheeple owned tax money!

They know a lot of their personal police state protection, through the Continuity of Government Program, will go away if they make significant cuts in government spending.

They're paying for their own physical protection with our money for Christ's sake!

Well it´s still (9:19 PM ET) early action in gold trading in Asia, but both gold and silver


are practically unchanged.

Probably a good time to go and get some more, as no one seems to care about more can kicking.  I guess they will care later on when kicking the can does not work anymore.

¨Bullish¨.  And of course what I mean is, even down here in Peru for a few days:

1)  The Rs will cave (again) and/or

2)  Even if they don´t, the Tresrev will find some phony-baloney to keep it all going (printing the money or whatever) and/or

3)  Suspend our outflank that pesky constitutional business I have read about and/or

4)  Cook the books again and/or

5)  Just do it however, as the State Run Media will not care to report anything important.


What I do not see is the political honesty and fortitude to address our nation´s overspending.  Seems not enough want to solve anything.


A data point for Cognitive Dissonance!  Ain´t none of that cognitive dissonance down here in Peru!  NO ONE worries about that kind of stuff (.gov lying, crooked bankers, the cops shooting on the folks, etc.)!

Everyone here knows the government lies, banks steal and yes, the cops will shoot!

I will have to ask my in-laws if there is even the CONCEPT of cognitive dissonace here...

Anyone want to take bets on how late he is? 

I think he's only 30 mins late for this one.

Regardless, I think seeing as we're having problems paying our bills, Michele Obama should take another $500,000 a day trip to Africa.

....let's take these negotiations seriously folks.

Goddamn right.  Gotta take this shit serious like.  And them pecker-heads show up in Sunday casual. 
If I were a Senator...yes, a Senator.  I'd be Senator Philip A. Bluster (who was in a story somewhere, talks like Foghorn Leghorn) Ranking Member and Chair of the Newly established Senate Hindsight Committee, and By God, We Shall Never, Ever Run Out of Things to Question After the Fact, Nor Plain Downright Second Guess, Everybody Should be goin' in their Sunday Finest Come to Jesus Meeting Clothes.
I seriously hope all them Fucking Dumb as a Post Mainstream Media Liberal Make No Sense Types choke to fucking death on their holiday dinners, reporting about an imminent default because the debt ceiling won't be raised.

Jesus H Fucking Keeeeerist, for how long do people like that get paid to recite political propaganda, pablum, and perceptional crap.

Even the President and his most senior aides and advisers, supposed to be in the know on this shit, n'cest pas?  Same drivel and chickenshit, trying desperately to confound, confuse and panic the public for narrow political purposes in the never ending election cycle.

And the sheeple (who are really not that dumb as given a lack of credit for, and if they were that dumb, there would be no worries about alternative media) are really expected to take this charade seriously?  

Insert finger until reach prostate.  Rub vigorously.  Attend important meeting.  Kiss baby.  Insert finger....

My bet is that he shows up on time this time.  Note that they set this for the later 11:00 am start, so I believe they learned their lesson and won't do anything earlier than 11:00 again.  So, see, they ARE capable of learning.

Is he going to be a half hour late again then make some pithy soundbites before fucking off to the golf course without taking so much as a "hey Prez , is it true Pelosis growler tastes like pennies?"

Heaven forbid he be accountable for anything or even answer a question (not that those fucking pussies in the press pack ever ask anything more difficult than "whats Michelle wearing tomorrow")

Ive got your hope and its buried in the same cemetary as change.

Guys, we all know there's not a chance in Hell they'll let the debt default while there's still another six months of can kicking available to them...

They sure as fuck will default on debt.  They'll default on the debt and obligations they owe their own citizenry.  You can fucking count on it.

Well, we´ll see because I do not know (Bearings don´t have clues).

Whether they default or not, having a nice little pile of gold should give anyone some comfort.

I hope you're ready to defend your gold with a gun.  Because, you can bet those short and curly hairs on your ass that they'll confiscate it by making it illegal to hold it.  They've done it before and they sure-as-shit will do it again.

Ultimately I think that is what TSA is for, they won't come to your house looking for bullion.

Their just going to make it damn difficult to get it out of the country, that's why they pay particular attention to the very young and old. Examining diapers for example

Swim the Rio Grande. Mind you, weighed down with all that gold that may not be the best idea. Better plan, drive to the Montana/Alberta boarder and bribe some Hutterites to let you in using their fields. Better still become one and live the good 'ol life being a chicken boss.

The government asked for gold in FDR's day and people gave it to them willingly because they believed the government acted in the best interest of the people.  Today, people do not trust the governemnt, and how would the governemnt know I have PMs?  They wouldn't.

Boilermaker you got junked (not by me) but I smell a well thought out play evolving.

Team Red and Blue playing a game of chicken.

What do the Banksters really want? Do they want us to be in the same position as Greece?

Pissed off enough to demonstrate while austerity is imposed to pay down the debt that we had no say so over. Think of the end game of globalization and how a US default will add to their incrementalist approach.

Time to break the ties and leave the Union. Succession is the only way free states can rid themselves of a bankrupt Kleptocracy. No need to worry about another war of aggression by the Yankees. Their too busy with four wars in the Middle East and the continued occupation of Germany, Japan, and Korea.

Government shut down? GOODRIDDENS

Government shrinking ? Good

Government defaulting? About time, everyone else has anyway its the new "in thing".

Marshal Law? This is America, the police weigh 400 LB they aint going to take charge of anything, they are too dumb to organize any kind of "marshal law".


So what do the American people have to lose ? NOTHING.
