Europe is going to be fun watch this week!  Since I have not done my homework, I do not know what these Pirate Party guys want or are up to.

But, I have pirate-corn popped and am ready for business.  Argghh, ye bitchez!

+1 although your green arrow is not working...

His up arrow didn't work for me either, so I tried yours and it worked. Went back and tried his again and it worked. Weird.

Edit: I don't use those arrow thingys much, but it really pisses me off when RoboTard's down arrow won't work.

Just finished listening to an interview at PFSGroup on the demand for Physical Silver as a result of the lastest CRIMEX/CME/CFTC orchestrated price smash.  Bottom Line:  Demand for physical silver is through the roof.  Retail investors appear to be waking up.  They're buying silver like it's the last time they'll be able to get it.  Who knows ... they could be right.  Interview starts at the 21:45 marks and runs about 20 minutes.

DeadFred's got it right redy.  No paper, no GLD.  It's OK to buy real gold at these levels.

Interesting that ZH is giving it such little coverage too. Jeff Rense is all over it, videos, spalsh art adn everything.

It's pretty big, now with the Unions in it too. ALso read that it has no center, no firebrand leader.

Perhaps he will magically "Appear", soon. Just in time ti re-ignite them. There was a video on You Tube showing a bunch of fat, pasty looking bankers and bankresses laughing and toasting at the protestors with the bubbly. Very inciteful clip, going viral. Check it out.

Interesting to see what de-velops from here.

"Very inciteful clip, going viral."

Yes, that was their "Let them eat cake!" moment. If they were smart, they'd be sending their families to their homeland.

They only have to make one mistake or let their guard down for a second, and that's it.

Who knows what goes on the mind of the migrating lemming as it goes over the cliff. It may be a lemming version of "Cramer says Netflix is oversold".

True that.  I wonder if they squeak out a "Boooyah" as they plunge downwards.

That is significant if some of our real men are showing up.  And dressed respectably.

In the interim we non-lemmings must swim against the mainstream current, the prevailing mindset reinforced by all outlets of the money trust.  According to one especially intricately crafted essay by Marcuse, the very act of composing and broadcasting a message through the media cannot help but deliver an unspoken cultural bias. 

Zerohedge is among the rare communities where this insidious agenda is laid aside in favor of informed, critically tested viewpoints.

The very first step is to outlaw CDS's. Unethical and unenforceable in any moral society.

Seize the premiums and close the underwriters (and jail them if they are in breach of their obligations as directors running fraudulent business whilst insolvent).

Tulips bulbs were traded as an early form of futures contract in the 1630s.  When that particular bubble burst.  The Dutch courts ruled that these contracts were a form of gambling and therefore quite unenforceable.

Lemmings do in fact occasionally kill themselves en masse by drowning or falling, but such incidents are actually quite rare. An excellent anecdote from Wikipedia about how the suicidal image of lemmings was created:

"Even more influential was the 1958 Disney filmWhite Wilderness, which won an Academy Award for Documentary Feature, in which staged footage was shown with lemmings jumping into certain death after faked scenes of mass migration.[12] A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation documentary, Cruel Camera, found that the lemmings used for White Wilderness were flown from Hudson Bay toCalgaryAlberta, Canada, where they did not jump off the cliff, but were in fact launched off the cliff using a turntable.[13]"

Most 'wildlife' videos from that era were completely staged and usually involved cruelty.

there is nothing "popular" at all about this so called "delusion." only the pros..and the government of course... have been in this market...and that's going on years now. perhaps what was meant was "this delusion is in the people's interest"? anywho...with the media in full cover-up mode (until it's not...the sudden coverage of all Europe all the time on CNBC is pretty enlightening) how can one be deluded to begin with? we haven't even been informed! of course there is nothing more pathetic than a "we will now attempt to create a popular delusion" scheme involving money. Yet again: "cue to Treasuries" as your default setting. I don't think the Fed is frustrated as their debt instruments are now worth a fortune. If only bubble creation were as simple as Joe Kernan has been claiming since 2008:


i thought he had more hair than that?
