Lol That jungle is a real pest. When we’re gone someday they will just take back everything we borrowed from the land as if we were never here. Maybe you can clear some of it and grow grapes. Then you can eat what comes over the fence. Couldn’t you use some of that wood for building something or sell it as I’m guessing lumber is expensive there. Don’t know what kind of trees though. Hope it’s not those trees with pretty smelling flowers. I rooted a couple of those can’t remember the name tall trees with flowers you could smell in the air once I picked up there but while away over a family matter and the water ran low sitter didn’t water them and that was that. Was so disappointed although don’t know if they’d survive a frost here or not.

Meanwhile, talking of mean reversions, there is another factor which makes the current timing slightly more attractive than it has been (ever actually).

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you.

I guess that’s one of the advantages of colder climes is that when the weather turns cold stuff stops growing. No more mowing the lawn etc

See … there is something good about not living in Paradise! 🙂

Work goes slowly.  Took down four more trees, cut limbs & logs.  Got eight more trees to go, and these are serious, large, and in the lot corner next to three neighbors… with a fence around.  I’m gonna get a professional to rig them and pull them in the right direction into my lot.   Once he gets them on the ground, then I cut and section them and drag logs and branches up to the front.  THEN we call in the ‘chipper’ to make all the wood into a mulch pile.  Last pile of trees filled the box of a 2-1/2 ton truck before he emptied it out.  I expect the same again.  The chips make good fill for the rocky areas.

In between the big stuff, there’s still lawn mowing, and hacking the big weeds that keep coming over the fence from the jungle next door.   I average half a dozen pickup loads of green waste every week.    I keep dreaming of the nice flat lot my neighbor has, with a riding lawnmower….   someday.

Florida on Faber

Posted by goldielocks @ 19:25 on October 17, 2017  

Well there you go. A white person cannot complement white people without being called a racist but they can blame whites for all others problems even if it’s fake news or a game. It’s called black entertainment as a black pastor called it by certain black people who want blacks to divide or think they’re victims because it makes them money or others that have to do with illegal immigration. Same old misery loves company and no amount of money is going to change that.

Asset manager Sprott says Faber has resigned from board: ‘Shocked’ to learn he thought this way

  • “We were deeply disappointed to hear these remarks,” said Sprott CEO Peter Grosskopf.
  • Marc Faber was a director of Sprott, a global asset manager specializing in commodities, since 2010.
  • “We were shocked to learn he has ever thought this way,” Grosskopf said.

Faber has resigned from board at Sprott

Faber has resigned from board at Sprott  

Sprott CEO Peter Grosskopf said Marc Faber has resigned effective immediately as an independent director of the board following the publication of a racially charged report.

Faber, an investor known for his bearish market calls and an occasional guest on CNBC and other financial media, wrote in his latest newsletter that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people.

Reached by phone Tuesday afternoon, after details of Faber’s column began circulating widely, Grosskopf said, “We were deeply disappointed to hear these remarks.” The board and management requested Faber’s resignation.

Sprott, a global asset manager with expertise in precious metals and natural resources, “had to take immediate action,” Grosskopf said, adding he first heard about it this morning when he was pulled out of a meeting in Los Angeles to address the issue.

Faber was a director of Sprott since 2010. “We were shocked to learn he has ever thought this way,” Grosskopf said.

Separately Ivanhoe Mines spokesman Bob Williamson had no comment. Faber is also a director on that company’s board. A spokeswoman for NovaGold, another company where Faber serves as a director, wasn’t immediately available.

A CNBC spokesperson said the network does not intend to book Faber in the future.

and this is what he said that started it

‘Dr. Doom’ Faber: ‘Thank God white people populated America’

  • The market pessimist Marc “Dr. Doom” Faber claims that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people.
  • “I am not a racist, but the reality — no matter how politically incorrect — needs to be spelled out,” he says in his latest Gloom, Boom & Doom report.
  • Faber did not back away from the statements when asked for comment by CNBC, writing in an email, “If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist.”

Market doomsayer Marc “Dr. Doom” Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people.

The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country.

(A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.)

 “And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority,” he wrote.

“I am not a racist, but the reality — no matter how politically incorrect — needs to be spelled out.”

Reached for comment via email, Faber did not back away from his statements to CNBC.

“If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist. For years, Japanese were condemned because they denied the Nanking massacre,” he told CNBC in an email.

In addition to the brief statement, he sent a link to a USA Today story titled, “Banned in Biloxi, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ raises old censorship debate,” focusing on the Harper Lee classic.

In the newsletter, Faber’s comments address the confrontation in Charlottesville, Virginia, directly. Protesters clashed in August over a white nationalist rally called Unite the Right in Charlottesville, where officials were debating the removal of a Robert E. Lee statue from the University of Virginia campus.

The violence sparked a national debate over race and monuments that honor prominent Confederate figures that Faber decided to weigh in on.

Faber called the monuments “statues of honourable people whose only crime was to defend what all societies had done for more than 5,000 years: keep a part of the population enslaved.”

As long as the scum can sell unlimited paper silver and never have a margin call and there is enough physical Au and Ag around, we have a problem, so long as the lunatics run the CB’s as well.

I fear the only other way they break free, is when the system falls apart financially…… what they have created is so riddled with potential horror stories, that even a mild bear mkt, could easily become a monster.

I’ve been hearing about the silver shortage & how bullish it is for over 20 yrs-might as well give this guy a hearing too-how did it ever get to $49 in 2011?

HA! HA! OK-ALL TOGETHER NOW=” Thus, the precious metals, especially silver…. will experience a price rise never witnessed before in history.”

Again, I look at Central Bank silver sales as a fundamental that provides information about the long-term dynamics of the overall market, not to be used for short-term price movements.

Putting Silver Market Fundamentals Into Perspective

To understand what will happen to the future silver market and price, we need to analyze the role that the fundamentals play correctly.  While most Mainstream analysts focus on supply and demand factors to determine short-term silver prices, I study them to figure out how the entire market is changing over the long-term.

As I have stated in many articles in the past, industrial silver consumption is not a fundamental that determines the silver price; rather it reveals to me how the global economy is disintegrating.  Furthermore, Central Bank silver sales and scrap supply should not be used to forecast short-term silver price movements.  On the other hand, these two fundamentals provide data that suggests silver supply from reliable sources have been seriously depleted.

Unfortunately, some of my readers are frustrated that these fundamentals haven’t pushed silver much higher prices already.  So, when I continue to write articles showing how these silver market fundamentals are changing, they criticize by saying,” those fundamentals don’t mean anything or impact the price.”  While that may be true currently, it won’t be the case in the future.

Frustrated precious metals investors need to realize the following three important key factors:

  1. The Silver Market fundamentals are pointing to a perfect storm in the future as reliable past supplies can’t be counted on in the future.
  2. Most of the physical silver investment is held in tight hands.
  3. The disintegrating Energy Industry is the most critical factor and the UNKNOWN fundamental that will impact the value of silver in the future.

Of the three key factors above, the third one (the UNKNOWN Disintegrating Energy Industry) will impact the future value of the silver the most.  However, most of the individuals in the precious metals community are still unaware of how energy will affect the silver price and market in the future.  Instead, many in the Alternative Media continue to focus the silver market in regards to the economic and financial industry.

I will be putting out some articles shortly showing just how bad the situation in the U.S. and Global Oil industry has become.  When the U.S. and Global Oil Industry really starts to disintegrate, it will destroy the value of most Stocks, Bonds and Real Estate.  Thus, the precious metals, especially silver…. will experience a price rise never witnessed before in history.

Goldman Sachs Says Gold Is Better Than Bitcoin

October 17, 2017, 7:13 AM EDT
  • Precious metals are ‘neither a historic accident or a relic’
  • Bitcoin has surged more than fivefold in ‘17; gold’s up 12%

Gold wins out over cryptocurrencies when assessed on the majority of the key characteristics of money, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc., which adds that fear and wealth are the core drivers of bullion.

“Precious metals remain a relevant asset class in modern portfolios, despite their lack of yield,” analysts including Jeffrey Currie and Michael Hinds wrote. “They are neither a historic accident or a relic.” Looking at properties such as durability and intrinsic value, they are still relevant even with new materials discovered and new assets emerging, such as cryptocurrencies, they said.

No bang for their buck!

With this HUGE knockdown in gold I think they expected the same in the PM shares….but they’re not getting it. IMO this manipulated takedown is done for dinner!

Why, Oh Why, Can’t We Have a Decent Stock Bubble?

‘Irrational exuberance’ is tempered by memories of the frothy markets of 2000 and 2007

Oct. 16, 2017 1:15 p.m. ET

 

After an eight-year bull market and the cheapest borrowing costs in history, the big surprise isn’t that the stock market’s high, but that it isn’t higher still.

Where’s the irrational exuberance? Why are taxi—-well, Uber—-drivers still talking about politics and sports, when they should be offering stock tips and thinking about packing it all in and day trading?

Some numbers came out and surprise, surprise

Just like all other numbers, every time…..All Financial research dept’s and all university economic teaching schools may as well close, all economists can become traffic wardens…none of their input is any longer needed, as the outcome is preordained.

The only issue now is how long will it take the Dow to hit 100,000, then for 1,000,000.

Looks like politicians are not taking over population seriously.Instead of encouraging a better standard of life for third world they just open borders to over populate others who are self regulating ” having less kids” not to mention bring the problems from these countries with them.
Then they claim they need more workers. If they really needed more workers because their country self regulating population having less kids why aren’t they make insentives for them to have more or looking at that realistically rather than their fat pocket books. It looks to me like they don’t give a care about overpopulation, wages, quality of life, health, or the environment including wildlife. They’re brain dead only thinking about their own gravy train and too lazy and probably stupid to think of a better way.
Personally I think it’s more then that. They found even money isn’t going to help their mental rut of misery and unhappiness and want to ruin it for others they see as happy despite the problems they caused and want them to be as miserable, shallow and empty as they are.
Every time they leave the economy a mess the people recover and manage although maybe not financially. In the mess of life they find away to surivive and they hate that so think of another scheme to bring them down again. Either it be personal liberties or financially these miserable people want to drag them down into their mental rut over and over again.
