I had an awesome econ teacher. he taught the bullshit so fast it was unbelievable. Keynesian was 5 minutes of lecture.  I knew something was up. He knew it was all falling apart and the old econ books would have to be dusted off and rewritten for the next generation. He did what needed to be done, drilled us on the basics and pushed critical thinking. If you aced everything else and skipped the critical thinking projects. you could technically pass with a D-,  Students kept complaining about how economics is a science and math not a researching/thinking/writing class. He left one semester after I had him. I think I got lucky.


P.S. he owed a used car lot while teaching.  last I heard he sold everything and is out of the country on retirement.

This might seem off topic but it's not.

This is what we face, this is the NWO they are trying to install.  You want a boot kick to the face?  Then buy silver and quit supporting these people and their companies, they are using it against us.  These multi-national conglomerates have bought the gov't, politicians, judges, lawyers and own the prison system.  It's a giant club and us human resources are the fodder for their little games.

Umm, there's always ways to find criminals, without using this.

I wouldn't want this used to catch matter the crime.

There's ALWAYS another way.

This is pure fascism.  There is NO PLACE in society for this.

Of course, they won't use it to even catch the people you are talking about, they'll use it to catch petty things, for revenue, to pay off the banksters.

Nazi Germany is here, and they don't even need a Nazi party, and it's sold to us as protection, or for scum bags. 

Bush didn't understand a memo, so everybody's rights are now moot at airports for 10 years, including little girls being sexually assaulted.

There is absolutely no excuse for this. NONE.  If anything, such fascist, unconstitutional methods if used, would let OFF a scumbag in court.

At some point, someone will fight a cop over this, and maybe get killed.  That is one hell of a privacy invasion, for no reason, and it is unconstitutional.

As for JP Morgan, I still say 50 cents is at most what it's worth, like the Coca-cola from 'falling down', until it implodes and is worth 0.

That's all.

agreed gord but a tiny -1  for "trying to install"!

not trying, "they" have done it and are doing more.

f this bs!  how do we do this?

we have to take back our courts.  even their alleged law system has failed.  we stand strong united together under common law, because it has been verified the rule of statutory law does not exist.  if it did, certain guilty persons committing fraud in finances would have been in jail already.

since such is the case, i say we already have been facing a tyranny that needs to be brought back to original Constitutional intentions.  we cannot grant them any jurisdiction to rule over us.  in legal land silence is agreement.  turn the tables.  that silent contract we have with them relates to fiat money.  it is by that contract of our silence that they exert power over us.

we no longer grant these psychopaths any jurisdiction!  let them keep their worthless paper.  we are backed with silver, friendships, family, god, guns, food, knowledge and vehicles among other things. 

the judge can't say squat to a group of 25 or more in common decision in the courtroom.  learn your common law.  that's why they "single us out" to bring us into court, which by the way is their "place of business".  so, for "us" to "use" their court to our favor, we need to have control of the court by common agreement from those present in mass.

think about it.   basic law.  "democracy" if you will.

foreclosures have to end and ending yesterday would be too soon.

these financial tyrants need a lot more than a wrist slap and a rule change.

what good are rule changes when you don't follow the rules anyway?

f the banksters plans to screw us forever.  it's been on!

keep the peace.

keep stackin. 

show some respect for the ones who died to create the Constitution.

Actually dirt is the wrong word. Top soil or loam makes the best mud pies by far. Any local puddle will supply the needed high quality water. Top soil is more flavorful and very fluffy when baked at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. :>)

BTW I was a child eating mud pies during those insane above ground nuclear tests. Now THAT explains a lot.

Ed Steer says yesterday's raid just before the COMEX close was to prevent a margin call on the shorts. He also said,

"Here's a paragraph from silver analyst Ted Butler's private note to clients yesterday..."The facts still suggest higher silver prices, although sharp sell-offs must be expected...whether they are realized or not. [Emphasis mine. - Ed] The facts still point to silver greatly outperforming gold. Therefore, it still looks like the switch from gold to silver is a go. The facts still strongly suggest that silver should be held until three critical factors are played out...or clearly in force. The three critical factors are: widespread silver investment, the dissipation of the concentrated silver short position...and the coming silver industrial user inventory buying panic."

And lastly, my bullion dealer told me on the phone yesterday that he had another huge day at the store, with buyers everywhere. His main silver bullion of the three biggest bullion dealers in the USA...advised him yesterday that they were no longer taking orders for 1-ounce rounds or 10-ounce bars...the two most popular sizes. On Monday they told him that new deliveries were extended to six weeks. Two days later, they weren't taking orders".

I sometimes wonder if they have let silver run hyperparabolic as a last ditch attempt to cause a large sell off in gold when the silver price finally snaps back with elastic force. With silver running as crazy as this - the price movement is not sustainable without a correction or consolidation. I have been a pm investor for the past 10 years but the spike in silver I must say is a bit of a cause of concern. Or perhaps the spike is symbolizing that the fiat game is a lot closer to ending than most suspect.

I've been feeling the same way gemini.  But we have to keep this run up in perspective.  Silver needs to be triple digits even to meet its all time high.  There's a lot less Silver around today and A LOT more demand than there was in the 80's.  Corrections are always possible in every market ESPECIALLY Silver.  Geeze Silver is the king of corrections.  Even so fundamentals behind Silver look golden and I wont sell even if I see the price of Silver drop below $30 per oz again.

"a lot more demand?" from investment, maybe.  But industrial?  That fell off a cliff with digital photography.  And you can feel free to regurgitate the usual suspects from the Investment rarities newsletter.  Antibacterial this, solar panel that.  Tiny quantities compared to the old days.  All the johnny-come-latelys will be piling in, or already have, and will be easily shaken out as weak hands just in time for the glut of pawn shop and ebay scrap comes to market, right after the spring cleaning/yard sale season.  As they say, the cure for high prices is .... high prices.  I'll be sending a few pounds of scrap to the refinery next week.

With respect, you do not know what you are talking about --- that "fact" above is categorically untrue.  Photography has not accounted for more than 25% of industrial demand for silver in many decades, and STILL accounts for well over 10% of industrial demand, so you are wildly exaggerating at the very least.  Also, overall industrial demand remains very robust, and has grown every year for decades as well (with the notable exception of 2009).  Please have at least a passing knowledge of the topic at hand before presuming to speak authoritatively about it.

I think silver is looking at that great big inverse head and shoulders just completing on the S&P500 and getting ready for the next equity blast off?  Unbelievable but there it is and if we get through 1337 and then 1344...gone baby.  Amazing what a little printing can do.

Ordered more physical last night but holding some ZSL at the same time (for a short term pull back?) til we are through near term resistance...then load up the paper side w/ SIL all over again?

Edit - ZSL stopped out.  Silver is king.

It almost looks like a picturesque mountain scene. There you have the mountains and the alien green sky. The black water is still, reflecting the silver mountain perfectly.

I was kind of kidding but if 11:50 was it then today may be a good one indeed.  I don't think it was but that's my opinion.

It does look that way, but I think it was a headfake as the volume on that try was nothing like yesterday's volume.  I suspect the real effort will come just after 1 pm. 

I'm waiting for it.  Don't know if it will reach down to morning low or not.  Ready to trade accordingly. 

Should be interesting to see how much of a punch they have left in them.  This is last key close before options expiry as london is closed monday.  We will just see how much of a punch they have left.  Good luck.

wow, that attempt at 1:18 pm was even weaker than the 11:50.  Is that all they've got?  I mean, where's the CME margin rate hike?  Where's the high volume slam down on close?  Where's the fedspeak about raising rates?  Weak, just weak.  Sure does show what POMO addicted junkies they are.

Great news, though. 

Maybe JPM was the only one smacking silver and everybody else shot their wad on gold today?

I don't know if it's a bullish sign or a bearish sign but junk silver prices have really gone up in my area. I noticed Apmex sold all it's 1000 oz bars and it seems like it's other sizes are selling quickly for them. Maybe people got paid today because tomorrow is a holiday?

I do not agree with Max Keiser that JPM will crash, because I believe they will (continue) to switch from a short to long position, but hey, what do I know.  If I had to guess, another bank, most likely BAC or WFC as they are struggling anyway, will be thrown under the bus a la Lehman and with their horrible portfolio of weird real estate purchases they will also absorbe the brunt of the big and naked silver short.  The Majors will swap spit as they do and one will die from disease to save the others from the reaper.

The House of John Pierpont Morgan invented the Federal Reserve system.  The goal from the inception was that it started this game, and it will be the one to end it.  JPM makes Goldman Sachs look like the errand boy.
