Short SLV, buy physical! Just imagine if everyone did that? Paper ponzi collapses and the physical market goes parabolic. It could be the trade of the century.

Picked up another 80 oz of silver yesterday and the day prior.  Also picked up a nice Misr, Egyptian AKM.  6 clips, plenty of ammo, and was surprised by how accurate I was 300-400 yards out.  I guess the peasant rifle was a good choice for me.

Good work. I've been buying for the past month trying to take advantage of one shipping fee. Got 3oz. of gold and 100 oz. of silver getting yanked out of the market next week. I don't know if Hugo Chavez is good for Venezuela, but he's A-Fuckin allright for gold baby!!!

I figure they gotta give Hugo his gold, and quick.  If not, the confidence of sovereigns the world over will be shattered, and their could be a run on the depositories.


I still got the Benjamin pump in BB caliber I've had for 30 years.  If you pump it up 10 times it will shoot through a 1" pine board.  Pretty impressive!!

I've been thinking the same thing lately.  If it's true that SLV doesn't have all the silver they claim to, then some hedge fund could make a killing by taking delivery of silver and shorting the SLV at the same time.  It would basically be a risk-free trade (I mean, unless SLV started trading at a premium to physical, which seems highly unlikely).  If only I had a few billion dollars...

The EU implosion is sure taking it's time.  The $50B bailouts barely put a dent in things.  Now I'm reading the ECB needs to buy ("purchase" in Bernank speak) trillions in jacked up securities.  And any further bailouts talk is meeting strong opposition in Germany..  I'm waiting for Germany to pull out of the Euro completely..  How to trade that...

2) gold is not money
3) the Fed does not 'buy', they 'purchase'
4) alien invasions are good for the economy
5) there are no 'taxes', only 'revenues'
6) GDP will grow at 4%...3%...2%...1%...oh shit!
7) the SEC exists to protect you, the revenue payer
8) banks are solvent, well capitalized, and ready to lend
9) got PM?

15) Fannie and Freddie employees shouldn't lose their jobs just because some "higher ups" mismanaged the companies

16) Taxing the rich will increase revenues to the treasury

17) There is a 0% chance of a double dip recession

18) The unemployment rate is below 10%

19)  SSI/Medicaid/Medicare are sustainable programs and don't need to be reformed

20)  What consumers and small businesses really need right now is more 0% interest rate loans so they can borrow more cheap money that they will have no way in hell to pay back

Maybe the world REALLY IS ending in 2012 - or at least the world as we know it.  No concerns about global warming, economic meltdown or anything else because something big is gonna hit the fan, 80% of the world's population is gonna die and we're gonna hve a complete 'reset' - starting from a near stone age base.  The slect 'few' are preparing but knnow that there's not a snowball's chance in hell for the rest of us.....

Would explain a lot.  Biding time until things go 'Boom'.   If certain people start disappearing in early December 2012, maybe we will be seeing a pole shift, collision with Niribu, or God knows what.....   And maybe if nothign happens Plan B is a really viriulent form form of avian flu - Think 'V for Vendetta' on a global scale.    Bring the earth down to a far smaller 'sustainable' population.   Not beyond imagining - and that is what's really frightening.

"why would they be starting in the stone age again?"

Not stone age ... just grand palaces (for them) and peasant huts (for those that live through the cull).

"You think we'll forget about electricity, hydrocarbons, and computers?"

I don't expect you'll have much choice! ... If the chemicals don't make you forget, then the complete lack of electricity outside authorised hours in peasant areas, and no hydrocarbons for peasant vehicles, will make computers for peasants just a fond memory.

The globalists are not fucking around! They have recognised for decades that they can't run a planet with 7 billion people all aspiring to a massive air-conditioned house filled with iGadgets, with swiimming pool, yacht landing and three-car garage filled with gas-guzzling SUVs. They have not only published their plans for crashing the economies of the developed West down to the level of central Africs, but they have also repeatedly published their views that populations must be drastically reduced (by up to 90%!!). And I can't say I don't sympathise with them!

Anyone planning to quietly remain in the US beyond 3Q12 -- rather than fighting for state secessions now to starve the fuckers and rebuild from local communities and local resources -- would be well advised to learn the following lyrics in preparation for the FEMA work camps:

Jump down turn around
Pick a bale of cotton
Jump down turn around
Pick a bale of hay
Oh, Lordy, pick a bale of cotton
Oh, Lordy, pick a bale of hay

The West Memphis 3 thing is the depths of judicial depravity, a fractal articulated at the local level that exposes the structural corruption that has captured us at the national and global levels. If they did it, don't let them out of jail, fight to keep murderers in, dip sticks. If they are innocent, don't deprive them of their right to sue for false imprisonment. They are settling for this deal because they want to be sure to get out of prison, rather than take the chance on the retrial that they will get screwed. NOTHING is about justice, everything is about covering ass. It is a case study in what guides HOW decisions are made, and the structures that emerge around those interests and motivations. Extrapolate to the "market" and you don't really need a conspiracy theory so much as a theory of culture captured by careerism.

Sorry to go off like that. Unlike a lot of the chicanery that goes on, this one can be known.

MsC, I am not a Conspiracy Theorist by any stretch of the imagination. 
However, those who "are" fulfill a very important role in our information propagation. 
Take note of the relationship between those who are labelled conspiracy Theorists and those who label them as such.  Usually, the Theorist is postulating that the information offered to the public as the "truth" is indeed inaccurate in some significant dimension.  And usually the alternative proposed by the Theorist is unfriendly to the party promulgating the suspect information.  The baseline relationship.

Now, it is the party promulgating the supposedly erroneous information who in a purely Bernaysian manner of Perceptions Management decries the doubter to be the Conspiracy Theorist.  A pure form of degradation of the opposition, dismissed as lunacy, minimize, never directly answer the question, address the concerns and deficiencies... simply label the other the nut job.  Blow it off... scoff, belittle, imaginary ignoring.  (I like that Imaginarily Ignore the other party.)

Now, juxtaposed is the individual labelled the conspiracy Theorist.  Interesting, for that individual, the doubter, is neither the conspirator nor a theorist (anymore than the opposing party).  Thus it essentially is in fact, the party labeling the doubter the conspiracy Theorist who indeed promulgating such behavior, actually fulfilling the psychological role of perpetrating both conditions.  (Classic Bernays)

But more to the point, when examining the past objectively, in the majority of cases, the activity under debate as to what did (officially) and what winds up being found to be the truth (what really happened) has tended to prove the theorist (by label of admonition and degradation) the accurate party.  That the promulgator of the original challenged information has indeed gravely misrepresented the case as put forth in pursuit of an alternative agenda.

So, as the great information dissemination vehicle, essentially the Internet Reformation continues with the broadened dissemination of discussion, the case of the accused Theorist takes on a more weighty and reasonable position than when in a tightly controlled information dissemination regime. 
To wit (no political comment intended) the recent treatment of Dr. Paul's rankings in polls, etc., by the mainstream media.  Ignored, berated, not reported as he's not capable of winning.... until by error, it is admitted.  Dr. Freud speaking!) to be the case.  Alternative agenda, not to let the man who might dismantle the Kleptocracy do so, for it would cast the interested parties money, power and prestige.
To wit: CNBS everything's coming up roses... remember 1 to 2 years ago wouldn't even address the topic of gold... barbarous relic... conspiracy Theorists, nut jobs, etc. (Back when it was indeed the Fed who has since admitted they were trying to hold the price down, in party with media representations.)  Now having discussions about ownership, showing quotes (which they used to say didn't matter... pooh pooh pooh..

Looking at it through that filter, there is no such thing as a "Conspiracy Theorist", merely one person with a differing opinion who becomes labelled as such for purposes of discreditation.  When viewed in that manner it all looks different.  Pure Bernays.  It also adds an additional element of clarity to the analytic framework of the information puzzle.

Quick, my tin foil hat!

what is necessary for a so called "conspiracy"? simply more than 1 person agreeing on a thing right? therefore, one can rightly assume that ALL of human history is in some form one giant fucking conspiracy FACT!

Alex Jones will, one day, be seen as a national hero.  If you do not listen to him, you're missing out.  You said "anything," right TD?

I gave props to Alex in a post I made earlier today.

A young Alexander Emerick Jones once asked a former Texas Governor, George W Bush, during a press conference if he should indeed go after the Federal Reserve Bank. Immediately after questioning, Jones was forcibly removed from the conference, with his arm ripped behind his back (to which this day has not fully recovered) and arrested outside on the premises. The crime? A simple question in a society that supposedly guarantees free and open speech.

Should we really believe Bilderberg attendee Rick Perry's rhetoric on Bernanke & the FED?

Tick Rate Hits New Highs, Indicating HFT Activity

Traders Magazine Online News, August 12, 2011

James Armstrong

Bloomberg is reporting an unprecedented number of quotes in recent days, rising to new highs on Wednesday even as overall volume was down slightly, an indication of unfilled orders and the likely presence of active high frequency traders.

“The tick volume is up dramatically, when the actual volume of shares traded isn’t at the highest levels that we’ve seen,” Nagrath said. “Every time an order goes out, even though it’s canceled, for us it counts as another tick, another quote.”

Wednesday set an all-time high of 43.7 billion ticks. That was about one and a half times the number of ticks recorded during last year’s flash crash. Yesterday, data showed about 38 billion ticks, according to Bloomberg.

Watch full episode 174 of Keiser Report on Thursday. This week Max Keiser and co-host, Stacy Herbert, look at how quantitative easing is good for the rich, bad for the poor and how sterling is offering no refuge. In the second half of the show Max talks to Richard Heinberg, author of The End of Growth, about the role of energy in the current debt crisis.
