"Politicians will tell you that electrical demand is outpacing supply because of the country’s rapidly growing economy."

Yea, I get this kind of excuse from voice bots all the time...

Electrical Demand outpacing supply....hmmm.  Sounds dubious to me.  It reminds me on Enron saying the same thing and how they were chanting "burn baby burn" as wild-fires took out powerlines.

1 in 6 who don't pay for electricity, yet they just hang a wire and get it for free.
Blackout in Santiago, Chile just a few days ago lasted for hours too.
Someone is playing with EMPs.

10% premium for Krugerrands there in South Africa?

I pay about 5% premium for American Gold Eagles at the coin shops here.

24hgold.com's JV Widget with eBay now showing about a 13% premium over spot (AGEs), rather high, it is normally some 6% - 9% over.

SA is ruled by a Black communist kleptocracy. As the Whites leave, and leave they will if they do not want to go Into The Cannibal's Pot, SA will become another Zimbabwe. Via the immigration rackets, and absent Civil War, this is also America's future.

This really really really really absolutely not meant to be racist or supreme-race-advocating, but...

Why is it that when blacks are put in charge, stuff goes to hell? Inner cities, whole cities under black mayors and mostly black councils, South Africa after blacks take over from whites. The African continent in general compared to Europe, Asia or the Americas. I'm just asking.

Average IQ of blacks in sub saharan Africa is only 70. In America where blacks are approximately 25% white, black IQ is 85. Pair low IQ with high aggressiveness and you get typical black behavior. It's funny how we are free to characterize the behavior of all breeds and species of animals but not man. However trust me, those in charge have done exactly that.

"In America where blacks are approximately 25% white"

I thought you were just throwing this stuff out there, so I looked up Murray and Hernsteins' "The Bell Curve" to rebut you. Whoops. M&H actually found that average African-American IQ is 85.

But Obama is exactly 50% white. Does that make him twice the African-American that Al Sharpton is? Or does it work the other way around? And how come someone who is 50% white is the nation's First Black President?

Never mind, I forgot Bill Clinton.

according to Jared Diamond, black evolution proceeded away from civilization because mass concentrations of them would be wiped out by malaria.  Consequently, the civilized ones had a lower offspring survival rate and the antisocial traits such as violence and low cognitive aptitude came to dominate

The new government in SA after the end of Apartheid either killed or scared off a lot of whites (one of the highest murder rates in the world, among other things) -- including many at ESKOM, the country's monopoly power company. Eventually, things wear out and break down. Only now there's barely anyone left who knows how to fix them. Wouldn't be surprised to see a permanant outage at some stage.

Corruption is everywhere, Simon is right, the only difference is how blatant or subtle it is.

Check out the latest from the Capital Research Institute: "Consequences of a Trillion Broken Promises"

http://www.capitalresearchinstitute.org

"In our world of ever-decreasing attention spans I better cut to the chase.  Greece is bankrupt, hence the solution for Greece is to declare bankruptcy.  Similarly,  America is a (bankrupt) de-industrialized nation well on its way to becoming a part of the Third World.  What marks the Third World, in my opinion, is the glaring wealth disparity, systemic injustice, and widespread corruption.  Corruption American-style is just a little more sophisticated.  Rather than bribe congressmen or government officials they are merely promised cushy office jobs once their terms are over.  See?  That way you accept payment for services rendered after wards, when you are out of the public eye, out of the limelight.

The way back, logically, to a prospering economy with a growing middle class then, is to bring back manufacturing.  Until that process is initiated we will continue the current cycle of ‘recession’ and (weakest on record) ‘recovery’.

The reason for being so forward is simple.  The opinions expressed here are rarely found in the mainstream media.  Why is that, you should be asking yourself.  Who doesn’t want to see America re-industrialized, and the Greece dilemma settled in a just and fair manner?"

Listers. Yes. I have two. A hand-start SL2 and an electric start ST2. At present as part of my investment strategy I am slowly cornering the market in spares for late-model twin-cylinder Listers. (I don't mind telling you that because I already have a lot and most of you wouldn't know where to start.)

There is some interesting stuff in there about the world economy but it's lost. Why ?

Because a story, set out before a forum of gold bugs (I'm not one), beginning 'I was on my way to a gold shop', doesn't end with him reaching the gold shop and buying gold. It's used as a diversion.

Just lay it out straight.

South Africa used to be a first world country before the blacks took over. Same with Zimbabwe. They were a net exporter of food until Mugabe took over. Bingo - hundred trillion dollar notes worth nothing. Hey but tell me IQ has nothing to do with it or dat I be de evil racist - yo!

Its still British and American interests running South Africa now, same as it was 100 years ago.  So don't believe your own BS too much.  But it is spot on, in general.   When the Afrikaans and English were in power they atleast tried to provide basic necessities to the(ir) people.  But now its every man for himself,  black politicians serve the money powers.  Thats why corporate interests (esp. banks, such as Barclays)  have enjoyed the 'new' South Africa so much, the budding politicians are three times as poor as the guys they would have had to bribe  a decade ago!

Yeah they use blacks as their front men. The Boer Wars were about British and Jewish imperialism. They wanted S. Africa's mineral wealth so waged war on the Boers. Set up the first concentration camps.

Don't effin blame the British. USA had all the nukes and treasuries last 50 years, mofo. USA had all the money last 100 years. USA been sponsoring lil' buddy Israel. Your la-di-da country made this clusterfuck, not mine. USA shipped the jobs to China. USA attacked Iraq and Afghanistan. USA lets GS and JPM do what the fuck they want. USA been waterboarding people for saying barack Obama has big ears. Suck up the fuckin' responsibility instead of being a bitch looking to blame others for shit done 150 years ago. You're to blame, fuck-head. Your country runs the concentration camps now. You 'be the change', bee-yotch. Stop lookin' to blame the whole rest of the world when you live in the motherfuckin country that screws up the world most. Look at the shit you got at home, and your own countrymen may just stop getting fucked-over. Blame others, and you're playing the game the bankers and Wall st fuck-heads want. "Ooh! Ooh! Belgium has fucked us over!" "Ooh! Thailand's Jewish/Welsh/Swedish banking minority has stolen from us!" USA's been the sole superpower for 20 years, the biggest swinging dick for more than 100. If things are shit, look within your own fuking shores. Pussy.

Lots and lots of reports of rapes of babies in South Africa and elsewhere in Africa. I do know some blacks that are not killers or rapists but in America half the crime is committed by blacks and rape is largely a black on white occurrence.

Facts are facts. More false consciousness and programming in the media and the deliberate hiding of the facts regarding minority crime. Actually it's the same worldwide. Blacks in every country they live in commit more crimes - especially violent crimes. Brainwashing whites is a way of making them easy prey.

I did change careers, pay off most debt, buy some guns, and start buying silver, but that's all I can really do right now.  Next spring I will be planting my first garden, ever.  Good luck to him, and to you all.
