the cost of illegal drugs is and always has been, for the most part, the costs involved with doing business outside the law.  marijuana and hemp rope are both derived from the cannibis sativa plant.  production costs should be similar, and thus, price per pound should not vary greatly.  opium and poppy seeds come from the same plant.  likewise their costs of production should be similar.

the vast per pound difference between hemp rope and illegal marijuana (and poppyseed/opium) is what supports a huge criminal class.  a matching amount is extracted from the taxpayer to support a huge class of law enforcement drones, judges, lawyers, prison guards, etc.

can we as a society afford these two huge parasitic classes?  if we legalize everything, the cost is some dead junkies.  but wait, they’re already dying like flies anyway.

As our Silver Shinkansen bullet slides off into the sunset, I hope everyone enjoyed the ride today!  Looks like I have a weekend to party in Tokyo.  Wonder if I can afford a ‘Capsule Hotel’.



Finger on the pulse :-)

Key Indicater of Paper Money

Posted by Ororeef @ 19:07 on January 16, 2015  

and Inflation,Deflation is the VELOCITY of Money !   and its collapsing just as it did in the 30,s …theres nothing new on Wall st.

The only way to counter act it and neutralize it is To PRINT an equal percentage of it and Get it into the PUBLICS HANDS ….Not the BANKERS HANDS as Bernanke did………He DID KNOW what to do   !  ……   BUTTTTT   He gave it to his friendly Banker buddies and not the People !

thats what he did wrong !     He should have dropped it from Helicopters we would have been better off…

If he had real integrity he could have forced Banks to Lend ..    Giving each 100 million and told to keep 5 million for themselves so they wouldent  be concerned about the Interest Rate  ,but REQUIRED to lend out 95% and prove it ..at any rate ..even zero  !    Rinse and repeat as long as liquidity  and Velocity was declining   .That would have prevented the Mortgage collapse and all other defaults related to liquidity !   But they were his Lending buddies and corrupted him ..

Sez   Gold will double between December  and March   (Pierre Lassonde of Franco Nevada )….SHHH dont tell anybody  you’ll alert the Paper Pushers  !

Ive been following him since before he merged into Newmont when there was two companies Franco Nevada and Euro Nevada !

He merged into Newmont and was working himself to death so….in 2007 Newmont  CEO said to him Franco wasent doing anything, so Pierre offered to buy it BACK !    Clearly he saw something Newmont CEO didn’t  So he paid them 1.2 Billion to buy his company back !  (Its now worth 9   BILLION !

What did he see ?    Not just a Streaming company but a ROYALTY Company a company that had divs on future finds forever !

(Thats where the future is  but you have to be patient !  Put your self in the path of Growth and sit back and  watch them make you Rich !)  He’s not only a handsome debonaire very bright individual but worth 1.2 Billion personally !

The Attorney General Just Ended The Law That Allows Police To Seize Your Assets Even If You’re Innocent

State and local police in the United States will no longer be able to use federal laws to justify seizing property without evidence of a crime, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday.

The practice of local police taking property, including cash and cars, from people that they stop, and of handing it over to federal authorities, became common during the country’s war on drugs in the 1980s.

Since then, the practice, commonly known “civil forfeiture,” has allowed the police to seize cash or property that they suspect is tied to a crime even if the owner isn’t charged with one. The Supreme Court has even upheld the practice a number of times.

Gotta be happy with this weeks  movement in the precious metals, and positive action into the close.

I would like to see Silver  “say sorry”  for  this 4 yr mess before I do too much fist pumping



Best Regards



1280 gold up 15.20 just printed-late friday is usually dead as a door nail….

Posted by Richard640 @ 16:45 on January 16, 2015  

That gold rallied and held its gains despite a strong dollar and strong stocks today was unusual enough—now, at 4:37—gold keeps printing 1280—up about $15.40—so it’s added on another $4…highly unusual to see gold active like this on a late Friday afternoon—there’s been speculation that the SNB did what it did because something was going to happen in the near future…maybe this activity in gold is insider positioning for next week…

I gotta log in every time the past few days even though I click “remember me”-anyone else need to?

No such thing as Throw-away in this world, with metadata  retention etc, etc !!!

Encryption is the only way.

Has anyone looked at $BDI lately, it is at the low 700 (not  that good ), usually a reasonable economic indicator  , I can only get the last 3 years on stockcharts.


20% going in … such a deal … and then if times get tight they can threaten to nationalize you.

South Africa’s Zuma asks parliament to reconsider mineral bill

JOHANNESBURG, Jan 16 (Reuters) – South African President Jacob Zuma has asked parliament to reconsider a bill giving the state a free 20 percent stake in gas and oil ventures, believing it might not survive a potential challenge that it is unconstitutional, the government said.

Parliament passed the changes to its main petroleum law last March, alarming companies such as Shell, Total and Exxon Mobil, which are looking to explore in South Africa.

“After careful consideration of the Bill and the submissions received, the President is of the view that the Bill as it stands would not pass constitutional muster,” the Presidency said in a brief statement on Friday.

Zuma must assent to and sign all bills passed by parliament before they become South African law.

Communicate … I guess by email. I’ve got my throw-away if you’d like it.

I’m not sure if posters can see something called “users” that has some email addresses. Wanka knows more about this than I do.

Feels good to talk to you guys , same interests  even though world apart.

Re Chinese I think that they appreciate being able to acquire and own property that can’t be taken away from them, plus something tangible.

How do you communicate behind the scene, with anyone willing ?

Hey, but here in Ozz we have National Public TV (Payed by the taxpayers ) , so it must be independent – mostly.

Love the move in silver today, dough I’m still in the red , awaiting Mike Malony’s  $150 or even $1500 as per youtube.

Typed up quite a bit but Firefox froze and lost the bloody lot, while accessing nested bookmarks, will have to send them  email,as it happens quite often.



Maddog, Portugeezer

Posted by Buygold @ 13:06 on January 16, 2015  

Maddog you’re right about them sitting on the shares. Looks like they want to keep GDX/HUI at 22/200 respectively for OpEx today. As far as the SM, we’ll see how it acts in the last hour.

Portugeezer – something fishy going on with that SNB move. I suspect we’ll find out more in the next couple of weeks.

EQ, 12:38, yup and I think his partner in crime Stu Blusson donated $50 million as well to UBC..

Fascinating character that Chuck. Winning Breeders Cup races now.

Apparently his liver is a miracle of science too, to be donated to Smithsonian. Maybe it is diamond filtered?
