    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Tax reciepts have nothing to do with the debt ceiling. They go directly to IMF accounts.

Londonistan is burning.

The UK is the latest arab country to embrace the arab spring of revolutions.

About time the proles demanded regime change.

The queen must go.

I'd rather the wilfully ignorant and biblically stupid went.

The proles wanted socialism, they wanted non-jobs, they didn't care about the debt. They didn't want to be told they had failed an exam or be disciplined at school. Now they're left with a feeling of entitlement, no skills, national and personal debt, an iPhone, Sky and a large bill from phoning X-Factor.

Let them riot. Let them announce to the world that they are the underclass and their desires are to be ignored.

You are ignoring all those cap gains flowing into the Treas from NFLX sales.
Very bullish, as the off channels are ending their summer series.

As the exponential function kicks in we should be able to enjoy much more debt ceiling melodrama.  Perhaps weekly, after General Hospital.

Bernanke to Ron Paul "Is Gold Money?"


"The reason people hold gold is protection against tail risk, really, really, bad outcomes. To the extent that the last few years have made people more worried about the potential of a major crisis, then they hold gold as a protection,"


The DOW has crashed over 2k and Gold has risen $145 since that testimony

Did you ever notice that, if he lost the beard, the Bernank would be a dead ringer for Jim Lahey, supervisor of Sunnyvale Trailer Park?

Just sayin'...

Can't he just recycle his QE1/QE2 speech? Seems bit of a waste of taxpayer money to write a whole new speech.

Unfortunately, they're off limits as there is a Senate probe into QE speech writing instruments and paper supplies used, to ensure efficacy of the message this next round.

Wasn't the whole thing with the debt ceiling hike such that no more Congressional melodramas would have to be inflicted upon the population until after Obama [won|lost] the 2012 elections?

That sounds like a job for SuperCongress (tm).

I picture a crack team of flying superhumans, all dressed in different colors, with techno music in the background as they're on their way to sort of the debt ceiling problems.

Gold is the place to be. The money of Senators. Silver is for peasants. It's time will come when the dollar is too poor a currency even for peasants.

Actually I think copper is for peasants. Silver is for the middle class.

I'll bet you copper becomes money again too. Silver will be too valuable to make into small change coins.

Does anyone else here ever wonder what motivated the many ridiculous trolls we've endured over the last few years?  I do.


They had a level of tenacity that I don't think could be explained by masochism or the simple fun of poking angry people with a stick.  I think at least a few were finance industry workers who saw us calling out the damage their living causes to honest people and so they were here to defend their own sense of self (the Administrations reaction to S&P is a somewhat related bit of theater).

Just repeat after me ... the USA is a AAA nation ... the USA is a AAA nation. If you close your eyes and repeat that phrase long enough, it'll become true!

Besides, it's like Greenspan said yesterday, the US will always be able to print enough money to cover its debt obligations. So if the chanting doesn't work, the printing press will also do the trick! And voila ...
