The real pondering question for the weekend is how to not only survive the coming collapse but to actually profit from it.

I am taking a more modest approach.... survive the collapse, protect most of my assets, and grow tons of blueberries!

Ponder this:

Heads I win; tails I lose.

Heads the Wall Street banks win; tails the Wall Street banks win...all with my and other taxpayers money to insure the Wall Street banks never lose. 

So what if there is a crash. The Wall Street banks are protected.

I tried to explain to some people that 2014 might look bad. They all agreed... that that was impossible. There's no crisis and there will never be a crisis anymore.
Nobody gives a fuck anymore.

I've decided to never talk about it anymore and tell all the lemmings what they want to hear.

But never the less, I'm a stacker and I'll keep stacking untill the game ends or I'll retire.

To finish the job properly you need to go back and tell everyone you previously warned that you have now decided that they were right all along ... and now that you have seen the error of your ways you have sold ALL of your PM's at a terrible loss and you are now deep in crushing debt.

If you don't... when the shit hits the fan... and make no mistake it WILL... they will likely come looking for you and your precious metals lifeboat to save themselves...

How is it possible you know anybody sane?

"I've decided to never talk about it anymore and tell all the lemmings what they want to hear."


If the markets rally for another 3, 5, 10 years will any of you consider you might just possibly have been all wrong or are you more like the 9/11 hijackers and so convinced your right you'll "go down with the ship"?

Fuck the markets... it's the real economy that matters and it ain't doing so shit hot right now.

"will any of you consider you might just possibly have been all wrong"

Wrong about what - the timing?  Have you ever bothered to think about the $200 Tr. in USG's unfunded liabilities and what's going to happen when we have 200 Detroits and the USG belly up?  So while it does matter when - if it's 1, 5 or 10 years away - the reality of that debt implosion will happen, and all of us are simply trying to prepare for ourselves and our families the best way we know how from study of history, and comprehension of economic reality.

I believe in keeping with the article thumbnail, there's one answer to the fascist government.

  2. How fast can I run six miles on a relatively flat trail?

Let us make it six things to ponder for a little weekend humour.

60 People injured in Piranha Attack.

My favourite comment is the following.

"The attack is being blamed on warmer than usual temperatures."

Is it now?  It is not because the Pirana river has piranhas in it?

I may need a spot of global warming brandy at this time.

This is my sixth for the weekend and maybe a game changer. Upcoming is a split week of the old year and the new year and the most perfect week to pull off a "Bank Holiday", it has been roughly 80 years sense the last one was used. Two business days, off day followed by two more business days and the weekend. There's actually nine working days for a non evasion of overall government Internal Revenue Service operations (back to back)...
