That’s a dilemma we all have to face as we age. What is the carrot dangling on the stick in front of us to keep us going?? At least for awhile this must have been his:
” Li had also supposedly produced over 200 descendants during his life span, surviving 23 wives”
Shoot, I’m only on my third and doubt I can survive her. LOL!!! Joking aside, I don’t want to go through the pain again of losing another wife or any of my kids. I’ve had the most incredible life though, done almost everything I wanted to do in this life, so I’m having to search for reasons to want to keep on going. Yeah, will to live is the tough one.
I think I might shoot for 2032 though. I have a will to live to see if I am right about when this gold bull ends and at what price. I have the year as 2032 and the price at $21,000. I also have the gold bottom already in and the next target $2300, followed by a continuing rise to $4600 about a year later. What I don’t like is contemplating how we get there and what the world looks like by then.
Oh yes, almost forgot, the gold/silver ratio will be 21/1, in case anybody is asking. All The Best!!
“Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170.”
The mind boggles…! If I could collect Social Security for that long I could single-handedly break the system. I think, however, it will be broken well before I get there.
I would wish the man a long life… but that would be redundant.
There is a Chinese legend of a man who lived past 200 years, who was a military advisor to one of the late emperors… there even exists a picture of him from the early days of photography. Now I cannot think of the name(s). It seems that the challenge of such a long life, after having seen so much, it simply to keep up the will to live. The Chinese man gave up his will because he was tired of living and chose his time to go.
Edit: Ah! Here it is. Li Ching -Yuen, Chinese Herbalist, 256 years old.
support is building at $1180. and the trend line is still up. A break under $1160. and close would indicate another leg down.
INDIAN MAN CLAIMS HE’S 179 YEARS OLD
Vârânasî| A retired cobbler from northern India, Mahashta Mûrasi, claims he was born in January 1835, making him not only the oldest man on earth, but the oldest to have ever lived, according to the Guiness World Records.
According to indian officials, the man was born at home in the city of Bangalore on January 6th 1835, and is recorded to have lived in Vârânasî since 1903. He worked as a cobbler in the city until 1957, when he retired at the already venerable age of 122.
“I have been alive so long, that my great grand-children have been dead for years” explains Mr Mûrasi. “Somehow death forgot about me… And now there’s hardly any hope left. Look at the statistics, nobody dies past 150, even less at 170. At that point, I guess I’m immortal or something. I might as well enjoy it!”
The man’s birth certificate and identity cards all seem to confirm his version, but unfortunately no medical examination can confirm his saying for now. The last doctor Mister Mûrasi visited died in 1971, so there is little information available about his previous medical files.
And it did, fast track and all. I watched it all unfold gradually. One free trade deal after the next. Each and every one we were lied to.
Over and over ….”This will create jobs for Americans” Well it did. It created 10 American jobs and 1000 foreign jobs at the same time.
This article deals with Corporate New Zealand but the same holds true for Corporate America, Corporate Canada, Corporate Australia, and probably every other country in the world. Just read the following two paragraphs to see who owns all these countries of the world. Then read the article or do your own research. Or walk on by if you’d rather not know!! Silverngold
Would you be surprised to discover that a company with the same name as your country is registered with the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Washington DC?
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission has the government of New Zealand registered as a corporation under the name of HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND IN RIGHT OF NEW ZEALAND.
BOTTOM LINE Americans gleefully buying imports led to The Great Financial Crisis of 2008. It did NOT have to happen. Corporate and banking interests encouraging Americans to eat those apples could have been ignored, if they had a brain.
Unfortunately, most people never worked in a factory or mine or a farm, so don’t know the IMPORTANCE of buying goods domestically.
I swear, all the financial writers are asleep at the wheel. I knew a decades ago what was happening, and what the future would bring. First a hurting on mines, wells, factories and farms. Decades later the hurting would spread to other sectors.
Its looking like Gov’t employment is now on the hot seat because of budget restraints. Deficits.
O’er the land of debt slavery and the home of anything goes so long as it helps the bottom line.
I’m not sure exactly when it happened. Perhaps it’s impossible to pinpoint an event or a date. In the end, though, an uninformed populace gets not what they want but what they deserve…general lawlessness.
Personal America worships the self. If it feels good, do it. No thought wasted considering any destructive consequences that might be visited upon others. Corporate America worships the bottom line. Pay no attention to how we achieve our profits nor those we exploited along the way. In the end, a nation of narcissists receives its Boy King.
The latest episode in freedom’s long, sad decline comes this evening with an event that combines the worst of both Americas. The Boy King will announce that he is bypassing the legislative branch and rewriting immigration law. In his Personal America, he is doing this because he is impatient and because it feels good to “do something”. (Never mind pandering for votes.) The Corporate America that worships profits gladly supports him. Cheap labor is good for the bottom line and its executives line their pockets through the exploitation. (Witness the Wall St Journal and The Chamber of Commerce.)
All of this grinds away at the last remaining vestiges of The American Experiment. Other examples include:
- A wholly corrupt banking sector which has seen not a single prosecution for crimes committed leading up to The Great Financial Crisis of 2008.
- Utterly corrupt government regulatory bodies such as the SEC and CFTC, which willfully turn a blind eye in order to protect and defend the status quo.
- A corrupt and biased “Fourth Estate” media which overtly pursues a political agenda instead of defending The Bill of Rights, from which they draw their power.
- A hopelessly corrupt political class, so drunk on celebrity and the desire to maintain power, that they completely ignore their intended role as “people’s representatives”.
I have no doubt that we live in The Last Days. Not in a biblical sense but in the sense of lost freedom and liberty. You must understand that America is an historical aberration. Almost all of recorded history shows mankind living under despotism, tyranny and authoritarian rule. The American ideal of self-government, personal responsibility and freedom only came to pass in the late 18th Century. That this experiment survived even 100 years is a miracle yet our current generations have willfully squandered this inheritance, choosing instead to worship the false idols of self-gratification and greed.
My children and my children’s children will not enjoy the same opportunities and freedom that I was granted by birthright. For this I am saddened, not just today but everyday, knowing that just as it didn’t have to be this way, there is also no turning back and recapturing what has been lost.
Ahh, excuse me, but importing more than we export, SINCE 1969, already brought down the US. How much worse can things get??
This Is Not Good: The Yen Is Melting Down
November 19, 2014Financial Marketsadmin
The yen is down 1% today vs. the $. This is a huge move in one day for any currency. They yen has lost well more than half of its value vs. the dollar since the beginning of 2012. In other words, the yen is now collapsing.
If the yen goes “super-nova” – i.e. collapses – it could bring down the U.S. The U.S. QE/Keynesian Ponzi scheme relies on the Japan to help keep the scheme together. The yen is beginning to hyperinflate and it is now entering “parabolic” mode. First, this will cause the Japanese banks to implode because they’re loaded up with Japanese stocks and bonds, the way our banks are loaded with Treasuries. The banking system would not survive a yen collapse.
If the Japanese banking system collapses, it will translate into massive derivative losses and short term funding losses in the U.S. banking and hedge funds. In other words, U.S. banks have massive credit exposure risk to Japanese banks.
We’re watching the unfolding of suicidal fiat/Ponzi policy schemes for the purpose of supporting the U.S. It’s what’s going in with the latest manipulation of the yen and it’s what’s going on in the fiat paper gold and silver markets.
Perhaps the plan is to force Japan to use the dollar. But at this point the wheels are coming off the system and we are witnessing acts of desperation from the desperate criminals running our banking and political system.
What’s not being openly discussed is that Japanese citizens are buying a lot of physical gold now. I know this from a daily bullion market report we get. Soon we will start to see even more Americans move their monopoly dollars into physical. This is why the U.S. mint is now rationing silver eagles.
For those that missed last night’s links and because today was like watching paint dry, take some time to understand…
They aren’t about child sacrifices or fake killings, real people are dying in FF for the police state…
“Popes Francis and Ratzinger, plus Queen Elizabeth have all been named by eyewitness testifying before the ICLCJ Court as having killed and raped children in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult human sacrifice ceremonies.”
I think this Kevin Arnott guy is a few bricks short of a load!
That’s very touching Moggy. Thanks for posting it. I think I would only change one word in the whole song.
The land of the free (that would be the politicians and corporate leaders who are free to rob America and its people blind)
And the home of the SLAVE!! (that would be the rest of us, whether in Canada or the US.
If you’re in politics at a high level you are involved in this corruption. Otherwise you wouldn’t be there or you would be suicided too. It’s all tied together. This article does a good job of exposing it…..or at least watch the video I’ve (I think) posted before. Very disturbing to say the least!!
Yet again !!!!
Now they hit the phys when no-one is around.
When the sound system failed, Canadians sung the American anthem.
But the announcement certainly hasn’t increased the company’s value yet. It seems like just another reason to have the cabal grind you up into bits and pieces for rocking the boat. More power to these companies, but the PTB are in control
For example, miners could withhold from the markets all physical metal that they have timing discretion over until after the delivery notices are issued. By withholding discretionary sales during the month before delivery notices are issued, and by telling potential buyers for the following month to take delivery of futures contracts instead, mining companies could transform the earlier losses (caused by dumping huge amounts of paper futures) into gains as the traders who were betting they could sell short and then cover later are forced to buy at increasing prices because they do not have the metal required for delivery. Then the miners could sell into higher prices (after delivery notices have been acted on) the physical product they withheld from the market over the previous month. By focusing on withholding physical sales during the month before delivery, mining executives can press the short traders by constricting their supply of metal to deliver while encouraging buyers to take delivery from the futures exchange. Note that this approach only considers discretionary sales. Sales required by contract should be completed. When negotiating contracts or extensions for the future, however, mining company executives may want to consider time windows in which they retain flexibility about when they are required to deliver product.
I see what you mean some days ipso
This is the shoe that fits. These funds are controlling the PM’s right now. They also work this relationship in its inverse, short the indexes and go long the stocks. But you won’t see them let both sides rip. These hedge funds get inside information from their friends and maximize their profits squeezing little people out of the game. eventually these dude get smoked and Gold rises with the stocks, but first their cute little buy/sell programs need to blow up
