1913 was the year that America sold itself into debt servitude and traded it's soverignty for some lollypops and candy.

major, major currency moves...overnight, the zenz wuz off 3+% against the dollarz.  This isn't just a US thing...every currency regime is trying to outprint the compound interest function that implodes currency base when the economics world gets turned upside down by failure to grow debt.

actually the american people of 1913 had nothing to do with the federal reserve act. it stemmed from the rich man's panic of 1907, and the act was something the banksters had been trying to get rammed through for years in secret, and they did on christmas eve 1913. cheers.

Why so many thumbs down?  I thought that was sort of humerous.  In any case, I expect it to go way higher than even my 4-year-old's birthday!

I would like to thank ZH and all the posters for getting me involved in first silver and then gold, starting in the Spring of last year. I remember it well, my first purchase of ASE's, at $19 each, plus a little change. Then I bought SLV in equal amounts, and later sold the SLV and paid for all my physical silver. Now I'm doing the same thing with gold. Screw the Department of Truth!

God, those were the days, weren't they. It makes me feel nostalgic. It seems like so long ago, last Spring. Looking back, I can see that next Spring will be a different world yet again. Fasten your seat belts. There may be turbulence.

I would like to thank ZH as well.  I received a rare and coveted lifetime ban from the kitco gold forums in 2009 or there abouts.  I was bummed after being a member there for a couple of years and learning a great deal about buying and holding gold and silver.  I refused to read their boards any longer, which I have not to this day.  I swore off posting for what seems like forever.   ZH has been very liberating.

I tell friends and others that ZH is the most important site on the internet stupid highway.  I believe this is true.


Now I should donate.  Or can I send a silver round instead?


Thanks ZH.

I wonder if they are working on a new datatype for dollar values in databases.  Maybe something like a terabit wide?

The EE will push back hard by Friday, 1635 close with an explosive sunday open. 1700 will be a difficult threshold, but will be breached soon.

I gotta say I read his blog and sometimes he is spot on and other times he is like a raven lunatic. But he believes that Bernanke Won’t keep printing. Strange......

Thu, 08/04/2011 - 09:48 | 1523594 trav7777

he thinks that printing destroys the power of the FRN.

What he doesn't want to accept (due to the ethnicity of one of his main acolytes) is an analysis of Weimar, where the confettiers came out the other side of the hyperinflation owning all of Germany.  In fact, reversing this outcome was one of the main thrusts behind the german nationalist movement spearheaded by a guy named Adolf and his enactment of prohibition of ownership of various assets by members of a particular clan (same clan as the confettiers).

It's because Obama has ordered the building of a golden calf that's about 40 meters high.

Location will be that island where that greenish statue is located in New York.

And as that consumes rather a lot of gold... the goldprice goes up.


Our President on Wallstreet.

Shallowed be Your Name.

Your Empire crumbles.

Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily popcorn.

Forgive us our debts,

as we also have mocked our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation*,

but deliver us more evil.

(for Yours is the Empire and the power and the glory of Totalitarisme. Amen )

If you love gold then you must love Bernanke and the Fed, Trichet and the ECB, the EUSSR as a whole, and most especially the doyen of all things fiscally incontinent: Lord Keynes himself!
