  • SLV Reaching A New Low [View article]
    Silver seems like a bargain today. You want to buy when others hate it. Back up the truck for next year.

  • New Low In Silver; Lower Low In Gold Still To Come [View article]
    Silver at $15 and a Ratio of 16:1 makes Gold $240. Silly
    Gold at $900 and a Ratio of 16:1 makes Silver $50. Possible.
    ObamaCare Fan is about to hit the public this fall. Just wait.
    I will be long Silver even more so. Coins, not bars. Maybe a
    physical Silver Door stop on my log cabin in the woods.

  • Gold/Silver Ratio Continues To Show Strong Signal [View article]
    I agree with you Coindog. At 60 to 1 now, any math teacher can see that Silver has a better chance at going higher than Gold Percentage wise. I'm buying more silver this weekend at a coin show for junk coins.

  • Summer Street not giving up on Ariad's Iclusig despite suspension [View news story]
    loganj2, I am so happy for you. You are exactly the person I was thinking about in my previous post. Other countries do not have a FDA to contend with. Mexico is close by. Continued Good luck, Logan.

    Man oh man, people for sure dying with NO hope and along comes a drug with death as a 20% chance, 80% cure.

    If YOU had cancer (leukemia) and could be offered that bet with those odds, would you take it? I would. Death is sweet but living is better.

    Relabel it and get on with its marketing. Folks are dying.

  • Strong Signal From The Gold/Silver Ratio [View article]
    I thought it cost $21 to mine an ounce of silver?? Somebody correct me. So if true, how can silver go below $20-21 or thereabouts?

  • Predicting Biotech Stock Moves Based On Consensus Picks By Legendary Fund Managers [View article]
    I used to be a drug rep. This news is nothing to me. Here's people dying and having a 80% chance of surviving. Gimme a break. 20% clot and thrombo problems - even resulting in quicker death are worth the chance to them.

    I know the Dr's credo says do no harm, but THEY are not going to allow a 80% chance for recovery slip through their fingers, especially if they know what to look for.

    To kill or slow down CANCER growth you starve the Cancer's food chain, that's the blood we have. Yes, it's a ticklish feat.

    I just doubled down this morning at $4.40. It's a great company with a great product to save lives that are on the way out. If I told you what I used to represent you all (reading this) would know it, so I had some success as a rep. Dr's know a good drug even with bad sides or reps. The public will find out later. Most on the streets on LENO don't know who the first president was. LOL.

  • Chipotle Or Yum - Which Restaurant Should You Choose? [View article]
    My local Taco Bell in Blythewood SC decided to take matters into their own hands to raise prices 12%, Their Window sign said Taco Meal Deal $5 and when my wife and I went in to order it, the price INSIDE the TB was $5.59. I asked why and nobody inside working would tell me. We ordered it anyway and it was bad at that. So instead of repeat biz at $5 there going to be $0 repeat biz. Burger King right down the road with good and cheap food. TacoBell is Yum. And I was once long in Yum, but no more. Poorly run locally anyway.

  • Ariad slides again as FDA details adverse event reports [View news story]
    While we are waiting for the drugs to go off patent andbecome generic, folks with no chance of living are not given the chance. It's okay if my long ARIA goes to zero (not really) but to deny a dying person an 80% chance (or better percent if diluted) seems cruel waiting until 2019.

    My understanding is that these drugs work by denying the disease of a good blood supply. Hello?? and you wonder whay it forms clots and such? Give me a break, FDA.

    They are dead by then with green grass over them...still waiting for the silver bullet. (which isn't EVER coming)

  • Ariad slides again as FDA details adverse event reports [View news story]
    let me understand. this drug is given to people who do not have hope of living because of their disease. It works without bad side effects in 80% of the case, develops blood clots, strokes, and other dangerous things in the rest of 20%.

    and this is bad? suggest we take a further look at Acetaminophen and NSAIDS closer, too, then. We want a silver bullet I suppose.

    Do I see a head and shoulders forming?

  • Why I'm Buying Silver Again [View article]
    I agree with your modern ratio of 50 to 1. i don't think we will ever return to 16 to 1. However I would like to think with the rarity of Silver, we would be better equated at 33 or 40 to 1.

    With Gold at today's $1350 and Silver at $23, it's 58 to 1. Holding Gold at $1400, and using 40 to 1 we have silver rising to $35 and that's realistic in late 2013. Silver going from $23 to $35 gives me 50% gain with little to worry about in these crazy times. I like Junk silver in Quarters and Dimes. Small enough to barter with for food.

  • GLD: Do We Have A Date With 142? [View article]
    I am watching the attempt of the QE and Bernie, not Madoff but Nanke, to balance the 9 FED plates on a stick in the circus act forever. The problem occurs when Bernie, both names associated with Ponzi, tries to pass it off to a less able clown and juggler.

    We could have GLD at 90, too, at least SLV is attempting to correct the 65:1 ratio now that we have. Still looking for 2014 to get there with Gold the metal as low as $900 and silver the metal above $40 easily..
