I ordered my silver from a dealer who deals with the Perth Mint, but they had to make a deal with some company in Switzerland. I bought 1kg bars, made the order in December. They were only ready for delivery 2 weeks ago (it's taken this long because i added some coins to the order as well).

 

Sort of seems like a shortage to me.

Doesn't seem like there is much of a shortage to me. Plenty of silver out there for immediate delivery. Here's 25,000 ounces in Portland, Oregon if you have a cool $1M to spend.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=370491594504

Note: I am holding a fair amount of physical silver and gold myself, but all this talk of shortages is just marketing hype, IMO.

Isn't discussion of silver shortages analogous to the argument one should barter in silver because the FRN is 'worthless'?

If you have a billion dollars to park, then yes it's getting worthless.  If you are buying pizza and gasoline with them, they are not worthless.

Similarly, if you are looking for a millions tons of Ag then you will find trouble; whereas a few hundred ounces can be had from numerous sources.

It's a matter of determining the proper scale.

you have your facts wrong. Lower caste Hindu's/Muslims/Christians have been eating beef for a very long time. All the Hindu's in the state of Kerala love Beef which is a standard item in every Restaurant Menu. These are not a new phenomenon. FYI India was/is very diverse. The Brahmin laws were never applicable to them.

Of course now the caste system is fast receeding in cities particularly.

Lived in Saudi for five years in the nineties. Me and my expat friends always knew the place would eventually go boom even back then. We were on the Red Sea Jeddah side and our plan was to pile into a car n head up the coast a bit to dinghy it out to meet the British frigate. I worked in construction, mosty industrial but private homes as well. Most of the private homes had bunkers in the basement, some with the whole NBC fitout, armouries also. From what I saw and what I remember your average Saudi is probably kitted out better than Ripley setting off to see that bitch at the bottom of the elevator.

He did a couple of talks in 2004 and 2005 which were rather good. In his most recent, he's been gloating about being "80% accurate". He has also repeatedly called for the economic collapse in 2010, and now 2011.

Crude Awakening is really good.  First read about PO at FTW back in 2001ish.   Mike did a great job before nearly anyother websites talked about it.(except of course Jay's www.dieoff.com).

End Of Suburbia was great too.

I would also highly recommend the movie by Aaron Russo ->   http://tinyurl.com/6e9z6my

Catch some of his interviews.  It would fit right in with the movie C.A.  and what Mike was saying.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed his earlier work, and "Crossing the Rubicon" (connects 9/11 to peak oil) is a pretty good book too (though I wish he'd left out the more sensational bits), but his ego has expanded as his message has become more popular.

Agree with all your points.

Do give Aaron Russo a go though.  Try a few of his interviews.  The personal antecdotes about the Rockefellers et al brings it all home.

After how many decades?  And with blatant tyranny in their faces?  We have a lot of worthless Americans in this country, I don't deny, but only recently has the tyranny begun to show itself outright, I'm curious what the result would have been if our grandparents back in the 40's were treated the way the MENA citizens are now.

Signs are in Arabic.  Hmm.  Does this mean that the signs Weren't provided by the CIA/Mossad this time?

Are these protesters the "Good Guys"  like in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya? 

Or,  are Saudi protesters the 'Bad Guys" ?

I hope CNBCFAUX et al will clearify that shortly for their viewership.

OK...an even lower low.  J. Cramer just came on and deferred to E. Burnett as someone who "knows better than anyone else regarding Middle East issues."

I'm taking the under on J. Cramer having a job much longer.  I think the under is 2 months.

As for E. Burnett, she might be able to keep her job as long as she starts sexing it up more.

And all of us are entirely fucked if this is the state of financial news...which appears to be the fucking case.

Holy shit is it bad out there...

Oh...J. Cramer chimes in with "Any shooting is bad."  Thanks J. Cramer...'cause I did not know that.  Holy shit it is bad out there!

“Let me say this. The camera is the new gun. Filming the government and showing its excesses and showing its utter ignorance of the Constitution which every person who works for the government has taken an oath to uphold, will have massive effect. And we of course who believe in your civil liberties and your right not to be stopped by the government absent some demonstrable evidence of criminal activity will make sure that this tape, let’s just say, will be seen by a great number of people.”
