  • America has been on the decline since the end of WWII. And just in case you accidentally wander into a voting booth one day, there are some things you should know, and one of them is that there is absolutely no evidence to support the statement that the US is still the greatest country in the world. We're seventh in literacy, twenty-seventh in math, twenty-second in science, forty-ninth in life expectancy, 178th in infant mortality, third in median household income and dropping, number four in labor force and 1/3rd improvement since 2008 is in part time Micky D style jobs, and we're number four in exports. We lead the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of adults who believe angels are real, and defense spending, where we spend more than the next twenty-six countries combined, twenty-five of whom are allies not pulling their own weight. None of this is the fault of today's kids but, unless they reverse course and get us off the paper standard for money, they will go down as--without a doubt, a member of the WORST-period-GENERATION-period-EVER-period.

    So when you disdain commodity investments like hard tack silver and gold the only investment worth considering, I don't know whatthephukkk you're talking about?!

    You're braindead, they're liquidating.

  • 21% of America is under water, so those looking for existing homes have such a tight market, not only will interest rates have to be kept arbitrarily low forever, new homes come in to fill the gap.

    No brainer.

    Housing is key, to understanding nothing about the stock market except builders, which is so 1948. Still, even bigger fools in the market have to take a breather.

    Existing home sales shows a slight increase as looky loos come off the shelf thinking, this may be the last summer that loan rates are low, and the last of the cash buyers plays the game before they are all cashed out. The market doesn't like that one bit, but the silver and gold folks see the handwriting on the wall, the days of easy homeowner sales depends on joehomeownertoB having the creds and the higher paying jobs to carry the mortgage--it aint there, the lower end of the housing spectrum that usually leads the way, ain't there, it's the upper end getting farther and farther out of reach.

    But silver and gold is screaming, and SLW is too, so there is a silver lining.

    Hey! That's pretty catchy? (Barf)

    Vacation meant missing last week's wonderful FED fiasco, as we continue to Duck the Ukraine, which is for the birds. When Iraq rolls back the markets, you can bet those with general market losses will Crimea river, which may be good for gold and silver. Don't you just love making more worthless dollars in paper silver stocks like SLV, or miners, on the misery and death of others? Me too, I have to start relooking at defense stocks like Blockhead Marvin, and No-onegrumblin, and MarvinMarietta, jaunty alloowetta. How I love the smell of napalm in the morning, Duvall of you too I imagine. This was the week that was:

  • With last week's FOMC a distant wisp of a memory, Yellen the dove talked what we all know, at least, all of us who can reason know, the following: If joehomeownertoB has lost 26% buying power since 9/11 ($57.5K salary then, minus $6K NUMERICALLY, minus about $8K in inflation that doesn't count in the CPI like food and fuel), you've got to keep mortgage rates, and hence irates, low enough to make up SOME of the difference to keep reflating home prices--FOREVER), THEN--THAT is BULLISH for gold and silver. Hence the 5% pop the next day.

    If you think that's good, wait till we get out to about Feb 2015 and we blow over the irate pops she supposedly has waiting in the wings for us then. Here's hoping, since we only garner prosperity by trashing the paper dollar, so we're exporting everything to everyone, eventually, for nothing.

    See how that works? No? Me Neither, but you don't point your sails opposite the wind. It's liable to blow upyourazz. GLTA
