what's really strange is that most people in north america don't realise whats going on.

In between the tensile self-absorbed money lust of the "know what's going on" pile -- and the normal scrambling-inside-the-Jeuropean lie-web pseudo-society... 'tween those two, nobody's got the big picture.

While ya'll keep good track a yer massa's #s good right -- and it might tick up a few in your little numbers box -- are you suffering the responsibility heat of nurturing the un-knowing less powerful?

No -- just mock apocalyptic narcissism, scurrying after your money masters -- loving to hate them, and thus as bad as them, stuffing your pockets and scheming to filch tru der system.

You are pretty full of shit with your own "high and mighty" now ain't ya?

Boy I can tell how superior you are with your little Buddah buddy avatar.

Buddah hated Jews, didn't he? That's real enlightenment.

Buddha didn't know any jews except the sanskrit variety. You have a thread to his history that is very interesting. Care to expand on it?

As for fucking its a shared occupation. So maybe you are professing a hidden urge which I completely approve whoever be the lucky loser, I mean winner!

I would have everyone who jokes about high-level malfunction, which causes massive pain and death --- and then giddily drools about their stupid fucking horde and the metal form they keep it in -- I'd just have these fellas keep the LESS powerful first and foremost in their long-term planning and cognitive consideration.

Everybody who knows enough to buy Gold is intelligent enough to conceptualize the world in a solving framework.

It's the patheeeeetic money grubbing obsession that they got herded into (jobs and indoctrinating education) -- that tricked em stupid enough not to be able to delineate the harmful-deceitful elements of the ruling class ideology from their own lives.

Principle is indeed high and mighty. And I warmly greet the anger, which is but the inverse reflection of your unprinciple. (Talkin' bout the other fella, you're nicer = less committed to unprinciple)

Contrary to the Zero Zeitgeist -- cooperative, solving intelligence is human nature.

And, unfortunately, first-money-worrying sniggering is the #1 propaganda blanket function... i.e. passive, flat, worrying first about your money, is a successful business indoctrination operation running back to late 1930s National Association of Manufacturers.

Used to be solidarity -- that primitive naivete that is the human nature that fuels the ridicule here too.

Can't change that, no matter what --- same for all life.

So you are saying that human nature has already changed? And it morphed circa 1930?

"Used to be solidarity"...???

Perhaps you can link to some evidence of your claim?

Your presentation of self is a lie. A Buddah follower would not spew hatred based on race. In fact, he would not spew hatred. This is why I am writing you off as a troll. You, in fact, do not want it to work out well for all. Your logic is inconsistent.

Bye now. Roll up another character. I'm sure you will play again.

You obviously fancy yourself as some type of poet, or prophet, I really don't care which, but could you please dispense with the thesaurus laden drivel and at least try to type a full sentence that expresses a cogent thought? 

You can't possibly think in as disjointed fashion as you write.  You can't even communicate your thoughts and you are schooling people here on what they should think? 

I am serious and not just trying to cut you down.  Reread what you wrote, you don't make any sense and it takes multiple rereads to piece together the jigsaw puzzle of your shattered sanity.

Stop doing drugs.  Seriously, it is killing you.  My guess is you are homeless, angry, and dangerous to yourself as well as others.

I was addressing that specific group -- since these comments, while replied individually, are read universally. Everybody's got the opportunity to be smart -- it's just the rich, white, Gold bugs -- they got the security, therefore power, to actually do some good -- rather than watch the mold grow on their horde.

" it's just the rich, white, Gold bugs -- they got the security, therefore power, to actually do some good -- rather than watch the mold grow on their horde."

And, specifically, what 'good' do you have in mind?

Now you're talkin'!

Ain't nothing to it, really. Of course, I seem not to be able to tell others what good they need to do.

The trick is you have to live beyond your means on behalf of helping those with less power than you -- the opposite of living within your money limits to accumulate more.

If you want to lay out your assets, I could give you some ideas. But I really don't want to bother. I guess my specialty is accurate research and theory -- but, you are correct by implication, I offer no panacea at this point.

There's a way to see beyond all the world's money accumulating that ever's been done. Maaaybe somebody else could see it through what I write. I'd be pleasantly surprised.

There's lots of factors nobody's looking at -- and seeing the necessity towards solution is more complicated than anybody else apparently can see. Soo...

Don't intend to spin ya round like this -- but, good -- it's real simple, and yet people all befogged. I'm not willfully obscure. Yet, apparently, I can only indirectly describe, absent more specific questions, your answer.

Patience is a virtue... Silver will move, right now silver is still absorbing and adjusting to the 6 margin hikes that hit to drive price down... Once investors/specs see an opportunity they will be back into silver... could be today, could be next month. Just my opinion, not investment advice.

I agree and would add a word of caution to silver holders, you are likely not to feel any love until the end of this game.

The game of the central banks is to kick the can and slowly acquire gold, not silver.  That means that they can hold the silver market down, but not the gold market.  They will stop kicking the can at some point, and that is when silver will skyrocket.  What will cause them to stop delaying and switch us to a new monetary system are three things:

1.  Gold goes vertical

2.  They lose control of silver and it breaks several big banks

3.  Kicking the can is no longer practical due to plummeting currencies (slow debasement is good for them, fast debasement is bad), generalized panic, or uncontrollable unrest.

I call no joy for silver until the end of the can kicking period.  Until then, the big banks are perfectly happy with the situation.  I own some silver in addition to gold, and will not get shaken out just because it hasn't risen like gold.  Its day is coming.
