yeah, still holding caledonia.  i’ve been playing that one on their money for quite a while (sold enough to recoup my original investment – double, in fact, and let the rest ride as a sleeper).  i wasn’t sad to see mugabe forced out.  bright futures, maybe, with no chance of a loss!

…and a dividend too!!

P.S. ipso, can you get word to that slacker buygold, the manipulators aren’t in the Hamptons now…

One of my biggest regrets in life was not meeting you several years ago due to my phone mix up. You’re a first class anonymous internet dude.

Hope you’re right about a quick, shallow correction.

I guess we’ll see what tomorrow brings, not a bad day considering the USD strength.

If we’ve learned anything though, today’s comeback action might not have anything to do with what happens tomorrow. It’s all in the rig.

Do you still have Caledonia Mining?

Seriously good action in PM’s

Posted by Maddog @ 15:45 on January 3, 2018  

A quick 3 wave decline and bang off we run again…great stuff.

But it all pales besides the SM…just unreal strength.

Nothing wrong with that. Car prices way over priced.

People need to start up the squeaky wheels. They need to start to protest.
What politicians don’t want is to look bad and that will make them look bad.
You have illegals waving they’re own flags and burning ours or flying ours upside down. So what do the politicians do, cater to them to shut them up and get their votes.
Since Americans flying their flag upside down as a sign of distress
maybe they should protest that way and go after the Democrats. Then let them explain why they are throwing them under the bus and not worrying about their own citizens first.
All of the sudden Democrats are worried about the deficit with tax cuts but weren’t worried about deficit sky rocketing along with taxes, low wages or stagnant wages under Obama without a tax cut either.

Maddog – yep

looks like the bus got back from the Hamptons just in time to sell anything the FOMC minutes had to say.

I’m guess just a billion or two, which is nothing for the scum

denver

Posted by treefrog @ 14:34 on January 3, 2018  

i managed to avoid denver last summer.  coming up from raton pass on I-25, i took a left at colorado springs and went up through the mountains.  south park, breckenridge, frisco, walden.  there are some of us who will go out of our way to avoid cities.

i’ve been to denver.  i didn’t leave anything there i need to go back for.

PM’s crushed on FOMC…..and Dollar bid….quelle surprise !!!!

I’m not looking for a mcmansion or Maserati. You should sell your place there and moved to Denver and see how far your money will go, just so I can tease you. It’s a big wake-up call

“…people like me who have never owned a home. It’s completely out of reach and cars have become the same way…”

maybe for people who want to live in mcmansions and drive maseratis.

i live in a 2400 sq ft three bedroom house (which i bought in pieces at the sawmill).

California middle class sleeping in Cars

Posted by goldielocks @ 13:52 on January 3, 2018  

While Calif democrats want more money for illegals.

In California, property taxes and sky-high rents are creating a new sector of middle-class homeless. Many people have begun sleeping in their cars throughout the state due to the inability to afford a place to live. There are now hundreds of nurses and other middle-class workers sleeping in RVs and their personal cars in lots in Santa Barbara. It’s a sad day when a hard-working nurse can’t afford to live properly due to a state that robs its citizens of their fair wages and squeezes out the middle-class.
One woman named Marva Ericson, who is a nursing assistant, was interviewed by the LA Times regarding her current state of homelessness.  Ericson makes use a Safe Parking program, she showers at a YMCA and gets dressed and goes to work each morning.
‘I wake up and I say, ‘Thank you God for keeping me safe last night, and thank you for the Safe Parking program’,’ the 48-year-old told the LA Times.
It should be noted that Ericson chooses to “thank” the state, rather than condemn it for creating the issue in the first place. If that’s not complete indoctrination, I’m not sure what is. When you work full-time as a nurse and you are thankful to the state for robbing you of your earnings in exchange for allowing you to sleep in a car in an abandoned parking lot, you are headed nowhere good. I’d be gathering my bug out bag essentials and looking for a plan B, or planning a revolt before I’d thank the state. That’s just insane.
New Beginnings Counseling Center runs the Safe Parking program as a way to provide a safe sleeping environment, which happens to be in parking lots. A stunning 35 percent of these parking lot homeless are considered senior citizens. While some have the “luxury” of sleeping in campers, most sleep in small cars.
Ericson, according to the article, suffered a brain tumor years back, which led to seizures, which ultimately led to her inability to continue to work. And all of this led to a life living as a vagabond in a parking lot. Her old rent was upwards of $1600, she fell behind due to lack of employment, and was never able to catch up. Now she just flat out can’t afford any rent at all.
For many, leaving areas such as Santa Barbara for less expensive areas isn’t so simple. Many are employed in the area where the parking lots are located. In California, you’d never make it to work in a timely manner due to overcrowding of freeways if you lived too far away from your job. Additionally, the cost of fuel is just as spectacular as rent. They’d be starting over by moving completely away, they’d also have to sacrifice some level of safety considering that lesser rents are typically located in more dangerous areas.
