Thank you Tyler et al for all you do.

You've actually changed the conversation. Quite a feat for a fantasy man and his girl (and their friends). May 2011 give you greater sources, more relentless research and financial gain.

This is why we read ZH.  The best of journalism. Unbiased, unfiltered, very scrutinized, very informative, and the best of financial honest news anywhere.    ZeroHedge Rules!!  +2

Yep, it does.  I miss some of the old-timers.  Wish they'd all check back in for a 2011 appearance, even if a touch-n-go.   I'm looking forward to some real action in this new year.  Happy New Year to all!

Happy New Year Rock!  ZH is great.  What about the old timers?  I think the popularity of the site keeps many away.  I saw deadhead and Howard Beale post recently.  MsCreant and Miles Kindig are still regular and I see Lizzy every so often.  Whatever happened to Gordon Gekko?  Project Mayhem?  Marla?  Was never a Cheeky Bastard fan, but he has many admirers.  Green Sharts?  phaesed?  There are many others, but these come immediately to my mind.

Cheeky probably will be sharing a room with Assange in 2011.

Gordon has been around some. He took B9K9's suggestion and ran (moved off shore), probably a good idea until all U.S. citizens become targets outside our borders for f**king up the whole world with our military expansionism and fractional banking system.

Thanks for the news.  Good luck to ole GG.  I rather think fly over country in the States will be just fine.  On a comparative basis, of course.

Best Wishes for a Safe 2011! Thanks Zero-Hedge for providing The Timeline- often 1 to 2 days EARLIER than MSM, nice.  Hey, picking up on your comments about the US Taxpayer, maybe we can start a new statistic for 2011, "The Employed Taxpayer". Give monthly statistics, like the UNemployment rate, but this would track the number and % of people paying into the IRS and SS etc. Just a stray thought, thanks for everything.

It's getting exciting now, two and one-half. Think of everything we've accomplished, man. Out these windows, we will view the collapse of financial history. One step closer to economic equilibrium.

Zerohedge, in less than a year went from an interesting read, to a MUST read. I have been vastly improved in grasping what is really happening. Thank you and all the contributors. I have learned much.     Milestones

Oh !   I remember this from last year !!  This is my favorite thing ..... the TOP 10 .   A whole year has gone by, I was educated about silver & have accumulated all year instead of putting money in a bank or wasting money on worthless crap made in CHINA ..........please be proud of me, I  have managed to accumulate 500 bullion silver eagles in one year's time !!     I'm so proud of myself & thank ZEROHEDGE for knowledge.   & my sister, my husband & adult children still think I'm the nutty one, & if I mention economic collapse just one more time they are going to have me committed.......they are the idiots, not me.

Buy some silver, then show them a year from now how it has gone up X00%.  Tell them that crazy or not, you know how to make money a lot better than they do, and that they should listen to you on economic matters.  This is how I convinced my father to finally bite the bullet and buy silver.  He's not cashing out his retirement account yet, but he's pretty close.

I may be a little crazy, but I'm not stupid. It's amazing how a little pile of silver, can dispel hopelessness, one of it's many qualities.

Congrats on your silver collection.  I started about a year and a half ago - wish I had sooner!  Keep buying - it's going to keep going up and up - and keep spreading the word.  You know if you don't you will feel guilty about the people you didn't tell...

I don't care if people think I'm an idiot for buying silver - among other things I buy (not designer clothes or fancy vacations...) because I sleep better at night for it. 

One thing I really like is a good night's sleep.  Also, since I started paying attention, I have some hope that I could be well off someday, perhaps even retire - perhaps even at a younger age...

Because I have always known there was not going to be any social security for my generation (X).


Happy New Year everybody.

ZH I Like You But You Should Be Focussing More On How To Save Your Money And Also Stay Out Of The Business Where Everybody Want To Fuck You. Bonds And Equities, There All Bullshit. Take One Advise, Let There Be Some Money On Your Bank Account And Be Flexible. I Live In Spain And Here Nobody Seems To Care About The Crisis. They Just Are Thinking How To Take Advantages Of The Situation.

Upon re-reading some of the older posts and the following comments, I realized that there are fewer 'paid for' and troll posts these days. I doubt that was a freebie--so a big THANK YOU to whomever(s) managed that feat!

ZeroHedge for the win!

Thanks to all who contribute to ZH. I've learned more valuable info here than from my Econ classes in college. About a year ago I closed my ML account and went all in on physical gold and silver! Hahahahaha!!!

i used to get up in the morning to coffee , juice , a little bacon and toast. i would read a little news , do a few chores . i used to take walks or wet a line , maybe a nap by the stream if the weather allowed.

 since ZH came along i get in arguments with my neighbors about politicians and bank policies.  it drives me crazy to see prices increase at the supermarket and the pumps. if it wasn't for that lunatic bill banzi7 i would probably be in fist fights every day.

i must admit that it started with bill buckler's twice monthly newsletter. thats when i fearfully invested in gold and silver. yes it was about 3 years ago and there is a nice profit but now i am unable to claim that profit because ZH is now my homepage. the news, comments and black humor is like a daily torture. 

as soon as i believe it might be safe to cash in TD reports that this one or that one  has run out of gold or silver or that the grand ponzi is even grander.

i was going to buy a place in florida until george washington talked about the bp spill or a video interview of some joker appears here talking about the real state of real estate.

then there is " i told you so " reggie . and he always seems to be right. i know he is breaking some law somewhere. nobody can be right all the time .

my new years resolution is to find a support group to deal with my addiction. there must be a 12 or 15 or even a 38 step plan out there. i know its time when my wife tells Christmas visitors to "just ignore him". 

happy new year to all my co-dependents and ZH.

Wow! Capital controls was the way big winner.

Missed the article at the time, but knew about it anyway. Went back and read. Worse than I thought.

In Costa Rica already saw last year the US IRS expanded into big new building and banks were harrassing expats.  Woman who got $600/mo SS sent to her from states had her meager account frozen until she produced last 3 years IRS returns. She wasn't the only one by far. All the banks in the world now work for the IRS.

The "Capital Controls" piece, combined with the others (especially precious metals and sovereign defaults) make it clear that the time to expatriate is sooner rather than later.

Most of the suburban Wonder Bread crowd are still smoking the hookah, and would not believe to think that their government would confiscate their IRA, 401K, or other investments (albeit stealthily for the time being).

I pity the fool!

Long PM's and another nation to pledge allegiance too (?) - because my faith in this one is cooked.

ZH is one of the best weapons in my armory to fight the good fight against the many evils in the financial world. Thank you fight club, Tyler, and all of ZH's contributors for the great information and education during the past year. 2010 was one hell of a ride, and it looks like 2011 is going to be even wilder.  The only bad thing I can say after this past year of ZH in my head is that cannot watch the regular MSM news outlets because it feels like I am listening to 4 year olds reading See Spot Run.. Yours, Maverick

Prince didn't do bad on the lyrics to this thing. The year ain't right, but the spirit is.

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray

But when I woke up this mornin'
Coulda sworn it was judgment day

The sky was all purple
There were people runnin' everywhere

Tryin' 2 run from the destruction
U know I didn't even care

'Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go 2 fast

But life is just a party
And parties weren't meant 2 last

War is all around us
My mind says prepare 2 fight

So if I gotta die
I'm gonna listen 2 my body tonight

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Lemme tell ya somethin'
If U didn't come 2 party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby he's ready 2 roar

Yeah, everybody's got a bomb
We could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away

They say two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

Say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
No, no
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999 don't stop, don't stop, say it 1 more time

Two thousand zero zero party over
Oops out of time
Yeah, Yeah
So tonight we gonna, we gonna (Tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999)

Yeah, 1999
Don'tcha wanna go
Don'tcha wanna go
We could all die any day
I don't wanna die
I'd rather dance
