  • Debt Chaos, Financial Repression And Gold [View article]
    The other alternative to pay off the debt is for the US government to go downstairs to the printing press and print off 15 @ $1 Trillion dollar notes and pay back those investors who hold US treasuries. It is that simple. And don't tell me it will cause inflation unless you can tell me who will get the money and what they will do with it.

  • Record Breaking Sales Of Bullion Coins Continues [View article]

    For an interesting look in more detail at the above numbers, adding Canadian Mint and US silver mining supply, all of which point to the fact that US Mint can't produce the supply of Silver Eagles using domestic silver supply, see:

  • Silver Launches Higher Into 2012 [View article]
    I love silver, physical that is.

    But....there is no such thing going on as economic growth in the US. Is GDP growing....yea, but at 1%. That doesn't translate to jobs or income growth. How's a 1% raise work for your income if CPI (which is bogus) is running more than 2%?

  • Lessons Learned From Gold In 2011 [View article]
    The biggest lesson everyone should have learned in 2011 came from MF Global. You are not safe letting anyone hold your money or your gold. If you don't think the crooks and banksters will steal it, you are wrong. It just depends on who they are whether they will get away with it or not. Martha Stewart vs. Jon Corzine. Who is the bigger crook?

    ETFs - Nope
    COMEX - Nope
    Physical - Yep.

    Buying physical will be the single biggest thing people can do to end the fradulent paper market.

  • The European Banking Authority won't conduct another set of stress tests until H2 at the earliest. The EBA had previously started testing in the spring and announced results in July, but with a June deadline for banks to raise core Tier 1 ratio to 9%, officials say "it would make no sense" to run tests during capital raising.  [View news story]
    It makes no sense to run stress tests when you have no clue what assets are worth.....just saying.

  • The Burden We Leave Our Grandchildren [View article]
    Greg....thanks for your uninformed comments. As ususal...people like yourself tend to call names when they can't argue anything substantive against a concept. If you can disprove any of the comments that Mr. Roche makes....go ahead and do so.

    PS. If you don't think the US has a printing press and can print money without "borrowing" it, you yourself are ignorant of the process of money creation. As an attorney, you should be well versed on the idea that you need to know both sides of the argument if you intend to put forth an argument that will prevail. Have you read one single paper on MMT?

  • Krugman, Keynes, And The Economy [View article]
    Seer- " Afghanistan is not only a failure in the making with "Taliban" negotiations about to start, but we stood by and allowed them to maintain their status as the world's largest heroin supplier while we hypocritically maintained a "war on drugs" !!!

    IMHO....that was the reason we were there all along. Remember Mena, Ark.

  • The London Metal Exchange sent 15 non-disclosure agreements to potential bidders last month, sources say, and at least two serious suitors have emerged for a deal that could be worth as much as $1.5B. The whisper list of potential acquirers includes CME Group (CME), IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) and ICAP (IAPLY.PK).  [View news story]
    Wow....wouldn't that be a great big poke in the eye with a sharp stick of the CME (criminal manipulating enterprise) acquired the LME ( London manipulating enterprise). Hey....BTW...where in the world is Jon Corzine?

  • Is 2012 Silver's Year? [View article]
    HL: News today

    "The Lucky Friday Mine, one of the nation's top silver producers, may remain closed for a year after inspectors determined that sand and concrete material that had leaked from a pipe into a mine shaft over the years needed to be removed."


    "The closure prompted Hecla to reduce its estimated silver production for 2012 from more than 9 million ounces to about 7 million ounces, all from its remaining Green's Creek mine in Alaska."

    And we all thought the government couldn't do anything more to adversely influence the market for gold, silver and miners.

    Guess what.....less supply = higher price of silver.

    "From a trading standpoint, the March silver futures contract on the COMEX is trading with the highest volume of any near-term contract. "

    You won't get any support from me on recommending that ANYONE use the COMEX criminal minipulation exchange.

  • Mark My Words, Gold Is About To Skyrocket [View article]
    I continue to hold my gold insurance policy. Just like I continue to hold my life insurance policy. I haven't decided to up the amounts of either.

    I will sell some gold stocks if gold breaks $1900 again, but that depends on how silver is doing.

  • It's Not What Bulls Are Seeing, It's What They Are Ignoring [View article]
    Well so long as markets don't reflect fundamentals line growth in GDP, reductions in unemployment, deficits, trade deficits, falling or rising dollars, etc....then I guess you just flip the coin or throw the dart. But, I see the bear in the woods. So....I am hiding from the bear.

  • December saw 205,024 foreclosure filings, a 9% decline M/M, a 20% decline Y/Y, and a 49-month low. Filings were down 34% Y/Y in 2011. But despite the seemingly positive slowdown, RealtyTrac says foreclosures were in "full delay mode" in 2011 and will rise once again in 2012 as lenders take action.  [View news story]
    Yep....I'm sure those lenders are ready and waiting to take recognize those losses.

  • What Really Caused The Recession? [View article]
    Blueline....The Utopian dream is only the facade that the elitists use to sell their BS to the rest of the world. The elitists never believed in anything resembling the "message" they send.

    The elitists are always in it for themselves and only for themselves and their elite families. They promote those agendas that allow them to accumulate and preserve while the rest of the world trys to struggle each day to get through. There is no leader in the US in recent history (since 1913) that hasn't been a co-opted member of the "elites". How do you think Clinton - a guy who never had a real job other than public service - could afford to spend $3 million his daughter's wedding. Because he was bought and paid for, just like all the rest. The leaders are puppets. Why would anyone want to be a leader?
