first 4 business days of April should probably be edited to "May". Or I'm an idiot. Or both.
fixed on the former. not sure about the latter.
Thanks for zero hedge.
IS, have you bought any physical gold or silver yet?
I am seriously looking into it. 1st things 1st. This week I decided to start a business and personal accounts at a credit union.
I changed my phone and got an unlisted number. Next I will stiff Citibank for jacking my rate even though I never missed a payment (they did this after the crash), and refusing to lower more than 1 pt. at a time. They basically told me they don't negotiate until your delinquent.(so be it) Well, that part comes easy. I used to be a juvenile delinquent.
Next, I will buy physical gold and silver. Like an idiot I bought $100 worth of US gold coins and realized that wasn't a good idea, som I started spending them.
"I'm an air conditioned gypsy, watch the police and the tax man miss me"
NO! Get another credit card, purchase gold & silver...then default. Beats them at their own game.
I am only really pissed off at Citi on a personal personal level, while I am pissed at all the big banks in general; maybe cap I too, we'll see.
walstreetpro2 is that you?
Nada ~ I need no alias, never have.
"I am, what I am, what I am". Popeye
he's not saying "yam what i am" ?
all these years...
I'm a southerner...we have sweet potatoes, not yams. Maybe I should say sweet taters.
F@#k, not one comment on how to save our system and ourselves!! Are you saying we are done and there is no solution? Blood thirsty f@#kers!
Amen, thats the way to go.
Worry, do not. All credit scores will be reset in 2012 when no "worthy" creditors are left. Just like it happened after other crisis.
Good job, brother. Like the other guy said, get another card, max it out on physical gold and silver purchases, then just throw it away and wait for them to come asking about you.
When they come calling you out to play, get your foo on here:
It'll take at least 6 months for them to catch up to you at this point, longer if the economy deteriorates rapidly (i.e. longer to never...the trick is to outlast them).
I am Chumbawamba.
Steal from them before they rape you. Self defense!
I am not a guy.....not yet. Chastity Bono is now Chaz.....so there may be hope...but I no like getting what he/she gets....I prefer the outie, not the innie.
Seriously, I'm hoping gold comes in some when the market has its next big down day. Probably won't happen for a bit, but ya never know.
Have you been collecting for a while?
I started buying gold when it was just below $800 and silver in the $10-$13 range.
Now that the cat's sort of out of the bag, i.e. currencies are blowing up and more and more people are catching on, I'm trying to figure out the catalyst that will bring the price of gold down and it's hard to come up with something. The deleveraging process may do it when something big fails and everything comes crashing down but you'll have to act quickly in that event. I don't think the deflation argument or fake IMF sales will do the trick. The world is burning and there's no stopping it.
"Otherwise, things may be a little rough for the great declining American civilization"
Oh NO YOU DIDN'T!!!
Gold up 1.3±%, GLD down 0.2±% today.
What is your source on gold price?
That does NOT mean you should buy gold/silver there. It is a place to start pricing the market.
This (above) will tell you prices in the small lot market.
Use EBAY for price, but becareful. ALot of fake coins on there. Don't buy anything from China.
The thing about eBay is that they have systematic price distortions that have been created by the bing.com cashback offer. I'm not sure that you can use ebay gold prices as a market indicator for that reason.
I have been using kitco for spot prices for years, and yes, you are correct, never order from them because they are awful. My first experience with gold was buying in one of their gold pools, some years ago, before I knew the dangers. Made quite a bit of money, but now I'm all about physical accumulation.
US gold coin sales surge as investors flee risk - Reuters
...On Friday, the U.S. Mint said sales of the most popular American Eagle one-ounce gold coins totaled 41,500 ounces so far in the first week of May, compared to 60,500 ounces in the entire month of April.
HOW does the UK's debt trouble stay out of US news. It's always Spain, Portugal, Greece and Italy. I am amazed the UK gets little play.
Eurozone is bigger on consumption. Eurozone falling apart, more space freed for last man standing.
I would never call ZH the news. "The news" is a pejorative for me. ZH is my secret source
call it my "financial porn" site.
i'm sure the Wall Street Puritans just can't stand the filth found on this site :^)
I can't believe I heard him say that on network TV.
whoa. did i just see a network news anchor describing something that resembled the truth on network tv.
Yep, you figured it all out TD. Nice summary.
When the SHTF, don't say Tyler didn't warn you! ;)
ps: Just imagine, if the US is first before Japan. Epic thought...
I'm not sure that the typical American has the stomach for warfare ...... unless the cable t.v. gets cut off.
....now that's funny, J !! Rabbit ears and 5 channels might rescue millions of minds.
The eyes of the world are on America, and the eyes of America are watching television...
But a good part of American income seems to be being spent on guns and ammo (more than usual).
We were better off with three. Only things anyone watched were Bananza, Lucy and real Disney.
Twilight Zone....but we don't need TV for that anymore. Life imitates art.
It wouldn't interrupt American Idol, would it?
I don't mind a war as long as it's not too inconvenient.
"I'm not sure that the typical American has the stomach for warfare ...... "
why do you think we inported all those mexicans?
They some crazy head-chopping, acid dippin', 3rd world mofo's
Gordon_Gecko issued the last best alert to buy gold here at ZH a few weeks ago.
I think this WILL become clear to even the MSM, .gov, our neighbors and all others who have no clue when the next Greece happens.
Time to get prepared. Looks like a catastrophic disintegration approaches. Many will be hurt and full of woe.
It will be like I, Robot. The algos will start the all ending war. The bots will deduce that mankind will destroy itself, and them, if they don't take over the world, and destroy man. (and woman)
Everyone is forgetting about the game changing Katla volcano.
I recommend a preemptive nuclear strike on the volcano, after we nuke the oil blowhole, of course.
Media has the attention span of a small, yappy dog. General public maybe as well, I'm not sure. If Katla erupts, there will be some very serious problems to deal with globally, and nobody is ready.
Think of the Witchy volcano as a hedge against global warming.
