This is obviously fundamentals-based and its just efficient markets at work...



If you are fed up with whats happening with the government - it all stems from one major thing: the government's control of our money.  We have placed in our government the ability to control the money supply and dish out new money to whomever they please (usually their cronies and the banks) and to spend and create that money in infinite amounts to SUPPRESS we, the People.

To break this system we have to bring back real money and thus limit government control over money and our lives.  We can break the system by overwhelming the physical markets and give a no-vote to their control over money - they key is the small silver market.

Join the Silver Pledge - an effort to change the system by having investors join up and buy physical silver - together we can break this market and take back our government.

You can read more here:

If you dont like it dont sign up - but for people who are sick of sitting and doing nothing at least lets work together to BREAK this silver market

Don't know if to laugh or be angry that so many people could be that phucking stupid... they have no business anywhere near anything remotely resembling money. That so many are so phucking stupid explains so much, everywhere, all the time.

Most recent SEC filing was in May 2008

"As previously reported to the Commission, on June 11, 2007, TWTR, Inc. (the "Company") and each of its subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code (the "Code"). The filings were made in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in Wilmington, Delaware (the "Court"). On July 13, 2007, the Court entered an order approving the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries to Tweeter Newco LLC and/or its assignees."

Look closely before you hit the bid.

Are you stupid or just stoned? The government does not print our money, a cabal of private banks "prints" the money (most of it is digital) and loans it out. All currency is debt. The Constitution allowed ONLY COINS OF PURE METAL and had strict (death) penalties for dilution. No paper money at all. Blame the Supreme Court that allowed this to happen.

The WHOLE system was compromised and co-opted.  The lawmakers, the law enforcement, the lawyers, the judges,  the bankers (now banksters), the education system (at what age do they teach you about money and interest, if ever?)

But also...  The media.  Bought and paid for, all of them.

"We have placed in our government the ability to control the money supply and dish out new money to whomever they please (usually their cronies and the banks)..."

Yeah, synergize is missing an important point that also eluded me for a while. When Austrian school authors would state the general case that inflation favors those who receive the new money first, it took me a while to recognize that in the special case of the US Fiat system as it was set up on Jekyll Island (so to speak) it's -- not usually, as synergize put it -- but necessarily the banks that are first in line for the new "money" and therefore are the ones who benefit from inflation.

As for the cronies, their cut takes a much more circuitous route involving graft, kickbacks, laundering, bagmen and all that nefarious stuff.

I just wanted to jump in and say this article probably ranks as one of my top 5 favorite articles ever on ZH for the sheer stupidity it exposes.

These are the great "market rigging geniuses" we're so worried about?  

Next IPO I hear about in the MSM I'm going to check for ANY similar tickers and put some lunch money into them.

in 2000 I had an old guy come into my job and tell me he wanted to buy as much Yoohoo stock as possible. I asked him several times if he was sure. He looked at me like I was an idiot. Finally he said "how old are you, 22? How could you not have heard of yoohoo, everyone your age has!". I told him I used to drink it when I was 5, and had no idea if it was even publicly traded. We wet back and forth with this mess of a conversation for about 10 minutes until I realized he was talking about Yahoo. So this sort of stuff has been around forever, and usually is not a good sign. But the Bernak is on the job now.

Until I got to "I used to drink it when I was 5" my eyes read "Yoohoo" as "Yahoo" in your post.  Mind tricks still work even when you're expecting them, I guess.

I can remember there was a trucking company called Internet Transport which traded at an absurd level for many years because people believed it ran the internet.   It eventually went bankrupt.

Nothing new. 50 years ago or more it was a standing joke in the stock market that Seaboard Air Line went up and down with TWA, Boeing and the other aviation stocks.

Seaboard Air Line was a railroad.

They would only have made like $800k between all of them.

Somehow I get the feeling they won't see the stock price until it is back where it started.

The company I founded, tearjerker (symbol TRJRK), IPO's on Monday.

TRJRK is a real time communication service that allows anyone, even government employees, the ability to convey their tales of devastating woe, inflicted by the government "shutdown," over the internet in 141 characters or less.

Chinese citizenism citizens are unrivalled when it comes to flagrant roadside defecation. It is only through unmitigated immodesty they manage to exceed even their own achievements in this department, still maintaining that overconsumption/overexcretion is a matter of numbers and that blobbing up into Tibet will resolve the issue.

Chinese citizenism citizens knew of the finity of the world's roadsides. They knew it would come with consequences. But quick reliefs by public excretions were there so...
