a burma shave
couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder
Risk off boo-yatches!
i still like pre64 dimes more than gold...
Pretty soon, each one will be a gallon of gas.
I like the white metal too, but just out of curiosity, why dimes?
Usually, I go for the dollars or halves. Mostly halves (walking liberties) because they share the same "heads" side as ASEs, and might be more recognizable as silver to a layperson. Mercury dimes are kind of neat, though- provided you can buy them alone, and not just as endcaps to rolls of wheat pennies.
All white metal is good. Today you can buy Platinum and Palladium too. Today I actually added to my US pre 1933 Gold Coin holdings.
I am with you on the halves. Been watching various halves and quarters. It is all good and a smart thing to do.
Sell the market and Buy, Buy, Buy the PMs.
... why dimes?
... why dimes?
Mercury dimes. They're easily identified (don't have to look at the dates) and when the SHTF, they're going to be used extensively for day-to-day purchases... moreso than quarters, halves and d0llars. The term 'one thin dime' came out of the Great Depression era because the dimes were used so often that they became smooth... and very thin. You can still find them in the junk bins.
and the most important point of all, if i had silver morgans and wanted to buy, say a loaf of bread, there is no guarantee Mr baker will have CHANGE FOR 1 oz silver dollar (how many people really have ANY silver at all to continue commerce WSHTF)! god help you if you want to make small purchases with a 1 oz A.G.E. you cant spend it. besides the cost of 2 halves, 4 quarters or 10 dimes is the same, about 80 percent of spot, at least at my coin dealer. and maybe, just maybe, i can start a business, on the down low, making change for the gold bugs...food for thought.
Perhaps Mr. Baker had better set up an account with you, then.
Esp the 1916D! 1921 was a fine vintage also.
THE SPEECH as it shall now be referred to as, will cure all.
For about 3 ES points then it will crash again until the Fed meets.
and for a somewhat longer term perspective there is http://www.hussmanfunds.com/wmc/wmc110905.htm
At least when the stock market crashes, the average Joe 6-pack will place 100% of the blame on Europe.
Joe 6 pack is too dumb for that. He'll drink his High Life and blame Obama
HIp 6 Pack of PBR will blame Bush and Capitaism
Latino 6 Pack of El Presidente will do the same
Black 40oz will blame the white man
Frat boy keg pack will either blame Europe or The Tea Party, depending what helps them get more action
Yes, Goldman has offices in Europe too.
We would have gotten away with it if it weren't for those meddling Europeans
Bernake has carte blanche now. Operation Helicopter Drop--into personal bank deposits. That will solve all the problems, right?
And use the $$ to buy gold?? Silver??? Well, if he insists, it's worth a try.
Don't forget food, water and heat/electricity. Hate to see you have to spend your PMs for 'em.
Quite a drop... now they are in time with QE3 on sep/21 ;- )
I don't see why squid credit is gapping, they have the full fledged fascist efftard seal of approval.
Tyler's - might be time for a refresher on index drop trigger points.........
Down is relative...we are handidly up from the 2009 bottom
The auto industry is doing great as Obama stated earlier. After GM went bankrupt and IPO'd at $33 or whatever it was, is now steadfastly trading @ $22 and looking to really pick up some steam.
The post office is looking great.
Solar panels are flying off the shelves.
Shit...are we lookin' at 2007 highs in the near future maybe before October?
If Maxine Waters get's her way we can spend another trillion dollars to create 250 jobs, so maybe the recovery is near. Maybe we can bail out her husbands bank a second time (only if we're lucky)
Meanwhile, big labor is all getting roudy because no one wants to buy their overpriced shit, but that's the republicans fault. If only the private sector would pay more taxes to subsidize their bloated pensions... those evil and selfish privateers.
A full paragraph of snark. Does it get any better?
Dude, it's 251 jobs that Maxine sample the Waters will create. Just stick to the facts.
Someone should hire you to write a reality show or just about any kind of show.
Or he could write comedy for Obama...
TOTUS writer just exited Stage Left.
I'm applying for the position...told them I would do it for half of what he made.
They sounded interested ;-)
don't cha' know ;-)
Anyone with any sense at has already left in whatever direction an opening allowed. He's a disaster and no one wants to be associated with him when everyone realizes it.
LJS, au contraire meathead: but it isn't you, it might be the folks who have rather been embedded in the system, have no tendrils outside (especially within a 50 mile radius of DC--because there, well, thingz b boomin').
I know any number of folks who I'd trust in <various serious situations> who can't / won't go.
otoh--maybe you are right.
and maybe we'll have "embedded" folk.
Thank you for the laugh Bob. As far as my educated eye's can see we now have a country that is FUBAR. I appreciate your sarcasm.
dats really good, your best yet, someone should write a book on it
Because Buffett kept the free warrants and is getting nervous?
Buffet is giving his fortune away to a much higher cause.
Lifetime supply of Dilly Bars for sub-saharan African tribes.
I think Buffett needs to go soak again and think about what he's done... but just with his head this time.
But to think with his head.. he will need to sit over the pot and not stand in the bathtub.... lest he starts shitttin after he is done thinking on what he's done
The appropriate phrase is "Buffett needs to take a bath."
does that come with a haircut?
Let me get a Dow 10k Party hat ready.
But, but, that newsletter reader, oh, what's his name, MARK HULBERT, is calling for 13600. He's an xpert ya know.
(He's a loon.......)
What does Gartman have to say?
IF he was honest, he would tell us to fade his calls??
If I only had a brain....
Me thinks you are a little optimistic....
My only question: Will it be a slow fall or a cliff dive?
imo...slow fall began 7/25...neckline broken 8/2 - 8/4...expected ~120 pts (1360-1240) from neck at 1240 to bounce at 1240-120=1120 then possible test of resistance at 1240 (didn't make it) now plunge to 1080 and beyond with maybe one more bounce before bottom...
