A Front Page You Won't See In The US

Just because try hard as it may, the Chairman's printer simply can't issue infinite electronic equivalents of the 79 proton element, newspapers with a circulation of 435,000 (same as the Chicago Tribune) on this side of the Ganges will hardly ever be allowed to show the following anti-patriotic advertisement.

NO! But they do have Aryans! And the funny thing about that (Cultural bias against skin color) is on various indian channels that have enormous followings for Bollywood movies, you will see commercials (backed by Hindustan Unilever) for a whole mass of womens products to WHITEN their skin. Dark skin means you work outside and are a laborer, light skin means you DON'T work outside and come from a good family. And the women are HOT!!!

You should never fill those things out. As you discovered, they contain a legal threat.

If you really want to confuse them (as I found out once), show up for "duty" anyway. They spent well over half an hour trying to figure out why I wasn't in their database, until I finally told them.

Later, I got kicked out of the "Juror #8" chair for refusing to obey, in advance, any orders the judge might fancy coming up with.

Nope, sorry I'm not going to swear absolute obedience to any person, let alone a professional criminal.

i got forms from the court to fill out a few years ago. it was all for jury duty. they wanted to know all kinds of things such as who i live with, where i live, phone number,, etc. etc. etc. i wrote a letter back to the judge indicating i refused to fill out the forms. the whole time i kept thinking he would probably lock me up for contempt. his baliff later talked to me and said that the judge was actually looking into the jury questioneer form and for lack of a better term the legitamicy of it. i was pleasantly surprised. basically i didnt fill out any of the forms, never had to appear in court and never got called to sit on the jury. things do work out sometimes even though you fear the worst.

It is pretty appalling to show up for jury duty and be instructed by the judge that you must agree to everything he/she instructs. If that is how it is supposed to be, what is the point of a jury of your peers?

So wrong.

If I remember correctly, they call that a "wheatish" complexion.  I only lived there for a little while, and that was in the early 90's.  Back then, they still aspired to keep girls chunky too.

High value is placed on very pale complexions there.

Luckily (for them, that is) they don't need control. All they need is to exercise the ready-made divide and conquer tactic, Kashmir (or whatever the casus belli du jour with Pakistan is currently).

Have "terrorists" nuke a few chemical plants (along with some soft targets for good measure), and the place will be a wasteland for ages, with the survivors hell-bent on restitution in the form of war.

Anthropologists believe that European peoples are descended from migrants from the Indus River valley (that had in turn migrated from Africa via the Red Sea and Arabia long before that).  Indians and Europeans are members of the same Caucasian racial grouping as a consequence.

Same common root language and language family-- "Indo-European".

I remember my friends buying some ME gold coin, (maybe in Bahrain), taking it to India, and then watching some craftsmen come to the house, melt the coin down, and turn it into a traditional necklace right there in the balcony of the house.

I forgot to tell the ZH Team in the email that this top half of the Frontpage was a very big AD for a very big Jewellers, in case ZHers hadn't noticed...

The bottom half was for Mercedes's intelligent headlights system or some PR shit like that...except for inflation, no crisis to be felt over here...construction everywhere, lots of ads for construction products & cars (real crap cars though).

India is still very big on phys gold, jewellers are displaying enormous amounts of jewellery pieces, according to Kerala State stats (where the pic was taken), Kerala, the most communist state of India (and the most literate à la Cuba I wish to add), represents "at least 25% of total gold trade in the country, there are about 100 big gold companies in the State and any town in Kerala is bound to have at least 60-80 jewellers."

Day after day of my travel over here I can confirm I am gobsmacked by the number of unguarded, "doors wide open" jewellers in most towns I've been to. They're a bit like sports shoes shop in the West, people go with their famillies, take their shoes off before entering and then everyone gets to try on rings, necklaces, arm & feet chains...It is a sight to be seen...Each town seems to have its own "Goldtown" or something...

The State continues, "total gold market in Kerala represents more than 20 000 Crores rupees (about 2.8 billion €) and an established dealer sells anywhere from 10 to 40kg per day"

They are very proud of their goldsmithing tradition and do craft amazingly fine & delicate pieces...GIYF

Will be topping up on some coins/medals for sure before I leave, how's that for an everlasting souvenir?! ;)

There was a Jackie Chan film, newer so not action, about Chinese immigrants to Japan in the 70's or 80's.

The Japanese too had a policy of trust, according to the film, and the Chinese robbed them blind.

Let them shoot.

Odds are if someone already has a gun out whole family is dead anyway, especially if you have seen their faces.

In the end they get shit and either way you are dead.

Never leave a witness.

"Get a weapon, get good training, and practice."

Teach them to use anything as a weapon then no one has to search fro what they need when they need it. Too many people rely on tools instead of brains.

Resulting profit margin explains how they can afford the sign spinners.

Ben is a genius!!!

No, American stupidity is behing the proliferation here.  People in the US have an attention span of a 6 year old, and are more than willing to destroy their future for some short-term gratification.

Maybe a TREASURY operation to replace the tungsten bars in Fort Knox?

Why would they replace the tungsten bars?

Ever since they banned incandescent lightbulbs, Fort Knox is the safest place to store the strategic tungten reserves....

A large operation from BRIC or even the Red Shields would be my guess.   The Hoovering of American wealth continues.

Sept 2008 - June 2012, gold is wealth preservation

July 2012 - End of times, gold means survival 

What idiots would sell their gold to these basturds?

What idiots would sell their gold to these basturds?

Very few. 

However, what thugs would sell your gold to these basturds? 

Many.

Never forget that gold is the easiest loot to fence.  The thugs understand this fact.  If you want to follow the advice of many on this blog and own physical gold, then you need to as well.

"July 2012 - End of times, gold means survival "

Boy you best read up on people who survived war zones and collapses.

Gold was virtually useless.

Shit like toilet paper, books, and bullets carried more useful value.

You forgot to add "You can't eat it", too.

Your specious argument that gold is "useless" in extremis (and even that is debateable) is worthy of Jon Nadler himself.

Moreover, in focusing solely on gold as a means of exchange, you conveniently neglect to mention gold's very real and historical value as not only a means of preserving one's savings and wealth, but as a vehicle to transfer that wealth through a financial or monetary crisis.

Downarrow for you .... again.

Gully Foil is reaching epic stupid post level tonight. I think GF is on the wrong board, DU or Daily KOS maybe more approporiate for you.

A)-- Gun to your family head "get me the gold" OK just pretend to get the gold, or get it, but shoot the fvcker in his head instead of delivering gold, save your family from being killed ala Dr Petit in Conn. If you give them what they want, then they kill your family:

B)--When the lights go out and paper money crashes, ONLY those with GOLD eat at all. Those with food ONLY accept GOLD as payment. This is not my opinion, this is recent history (and throughout all history)

Okay, poop quiz.

How do you recognize graduates of public schools on ZH?

Throw sarcasm, irony, or a sardonic statement at them, which is obviously meant to distract them from the issue at hand, and see the junks pile up against your post. Look at how MDB or that MaxPsycho, or whatever his id is, do. I have been here longer than most folks, and it never ceasium to amaze me. Now, watch how many people junk me for using ceasium and poop.

And we are waiting for people to wake up? LOL.

Little known fact is India has as much gold as all the rest of the coutries soverigns combined.(18.000metric tons).

Believe there was a chart on here with that a while back.

Not counting the peoples holdings.....................which is humongous.

My $ is they have at least 25-30% of the total supply in the world.
