The question is - now that the public has bought back into the casino... which way do the big boys want the market to go? Remember this...

The Trickle-DOWN SYNDROME  ;-)


nope-1004's picture

Soon to be Tricked-&-Drowned Syndrome.  Faith in the USD and its rigged markets is total insanity and a financial death wish, as other nations see the bullshit and are preparing the next economic system without the arrogant, entitled, privileged reserve.



bunzbunzbunz's picture

...That's a pretty ignorant statement. Faith in the USD and markets is exactly what makes the USD and markets work. So to not have faith in them while still relying on them is far more insane. Now if you are completely self sufficient, feel free to burn or give me all your USD.

What exactly should I have faith in sir? One of an assortment of metals with little intrinsic value? And an intrinsic value the varies enormously with technilogical developments at that.

Rican's picture

One is scarce and finite and the other can be produced at the whim of a few powerful elite. What's faith got to do with it, other than perpetuating the illusion?

With the Obozo Admin it's not trickle-down anything...
It's trickle-up poverty.

10 k into hookers and blow.

Gaius Frakkin&#039; Baltar's picture

Most would put an extra $10k into the stawk market you say? Well... that's probably why they don't have an extra $10k to begin with.

Equality 7-25-1's picture

If you invest the 10k in blow the hookers are free. Until you run out.

Bunz, check back in with us in a couple of years (at most).

Meantime, buckle-up, it could get bumpy during the fleecing...

No, sir. Have faith in the PINKO COMMIE FASCISTS that you blindly follow.....

I would buy silver. That would explain why I am poor

No one suggested night vision?  Not even that horseman guy?  I guess his FN has Aimbot.

Overfed's picture

I've kinda had my heart set on either a small tractor with a backhoe or a mini-excavator.  Either would be a good investment of $10K if one had a use for them. Pre-owned, of course.

HelluvaEngineer's picture

Always good.  They do hold their value, so you are better off with something rather than nothing.  I have a 2wd Kubota almost as old as me and I promise you it will do a lot of work.  It has no front end loader, but I can pull tree stumps, mow, move dirt, use a carry-all, and tow a trailer.  I have a tail bucket that I used to make my Hugelkultur mounds this year.  All that and I use about 6 gallons a season.

Overfed's picture

I actually have a little Kubota, too. Has a front end loader, but it's a bit small for a backhoe. Night vision, or even better, thermal imaging could also prove useful someday, but equipment has more practical and immediate uses.

Say......where do I get this extra $10K anyway?

Creepy A. Cracker's picture

1976 Ford 3600 that I got for $300.  The owner (grandson of the owner who passed away, actually) thought that the block was cracked.  It was just a freeze plug that popped out in the cylinder head under the valve cover.  It is an awesome machine.  With the right attachments, and there are a lot of them, it can do almost anything.

Overfed's picture

Ford used to build some seriously good tractors and backhoes.

Pink > only till the fad of paper money and stock cert's fade.  There are a lot of folks with a monster mortgage, leased mercedes and stock that think they are rich.  Things can change overnight.

can I get that bitcoin with battery backup ?

I find it ironic that gold is one of the best conductors of electricity and bitcoin one of the the biggest users of electricity

And now ready for slaughter.

Hongcha's picture

They clearly set out to break the public's taste for gold, in favor of their dollars and their stocks.

This is akin to how they work on the public's mind to discourage, say, cannabis in favor of synthetic prescription drugs ... and then additional prescription drugs to counter the side effects of the first set of prescription drugs.  Or natural foods in favor of their synthetics.  I could go on and on but I know I am preaching to the choir.

The public is viewed as a tax farm and individuals merely as units of taxable energy.  Could not be clearer.

Could any more efficient Hell be manufactured ?  Well, I guess we shall see.  

The former United States is a now a majority of broken animals.  Only firearms are saving the holdouts from total loss.

jez's picture

If I may say so, Hongcha, the term "side effects" which you yourself use is another example of "how they work on the public's mind".

It's a clever term, the purpose of which is to encourage you to ignore something important.

If you take a drug to alleviate Condition A, successfully, but if that drug helps bring about harmful Conditions B and C, those are called "side effects". They are not side effects. They are effects.

Buy two acres of active farm land.

whom here in this day and age is smart enough to farm

mygameon's picture

I am. Totally into permaculture. Start with hugelkultur technique. Need way less than an acre to feed a family of four with veggies for a year. Oh yeah, heirloom seeds and g&a are a good idea.

A similar question was asked to investment bankers:


Q: A new client comes to you with $10,000 to invest.  What do you do?

A: 100% Sell them $2,000 worth of MBS crap for $10,000 and spend the proceeds on hookers and blow.

Retailing to the muppets is all they have left.  They're jittery out there.

September's almost here you rat bastards.  If September doesn't bring it,  October will.

DowBuck over 17k, and rising.    Buy allot of gas with a DowBuck.

$7,000 metal

$3,000 non perishables and useful tools.

Must have both to survive

logicalman's picture

Might be better reversed, who knows, but, yes, one or the other is good, but both will likely work out better.

I'm just wondering where the down arrow came from. Don't care, just find it odd.


toady's picture

Best to have all tools, food, ammo, land, survival stuff taken care of first, before any metals speculation.

41% is not high enough yet. When it reaches 91% we will be in real mania territory. That is when the sheep get sheared.

Never thought I'd see the day when two medium sized green bell peppers sold for $1.89.


Iflation is tamed though (rayt?)

Bread was a nickel a loaf in 1925.

NOTaREALmerican's picture

Sure, but think of how much better each loaf of bread is now-a-days.   That's tough to factor in when discussing inflation.

Apples $5.97 for a 3 pound bag in the No Frills supermarket here in apple growing country. I shit you not.

logicalman's picture

My dad's cousin was a farmer. Spent a lot of time there.

I've lived, for a while, in a farming community.

First years would be touch and go, but I learn fast.

Might have to augment with a bit of hunting, but I'm decent with a bow.

Whatever happens, I'll be dead one day.

Today was OK, Yesterday was a great day, close to perfect.


Who knows.

A somewhat distorted survey, I would have said (if anyone had asked me).

There ought to be a fifth option: "Buy even more fast food, sugary drinks and other consumer crap that I don't need".
