Five Year Performance Of Various Currencies Versus Gold

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 22:55 on June 19, 2018  

Note, all the currencies are weaker against the US dollar, so the global “they” can “encourage” US consumers, to buy imports and transfer USA consumer dollars to various other nations as needed. Meanwhile off shoring and lay offs here in the USA.

Is it Trump against the world?? There is no way in hell to bring jobs back with a too strong dollar. We need a weak dollar and a $100,000 Kia and $100,000 Toyota, and $4,000 Gold.

Russia Gold up 91%

Brazil up 64%

Mexico up 51%

S. Africa up 33%

Canada up 25%

England up 25%

Australia up 23%

India up 13%

Europe up 11%

Japan up 10%

Swiss up 4.5%

China up 4%



First, BuyGold, I have empathy for your family’s situation. Sending positive thoughts to you and your wife.

Posted by macroman3 @ 19:41 on June 19, 2018  

Second, I promise to reduce your stress by only talking about gold, however dull that may be right now.

Third, I apologize to those I have offended for speaking my libertarian mind and to R640.

And no Copper, I’m not on pain medication. Just very fed up with what goes on in the world. Mark me as the latest to join the Curmudgeon ranks. From bone head .gov, banks, religion, PC LBGTQ being shoved down my throat, I’m shoving back.

Thank you and good night,

sorry to hear of your wife’s difficulties.  she will be in my prayers.

Hawaii bans toxic pesticide “chlorpyrifos” linked to neurological damage in children… but it’s legal in the other 49 states (and you’re eating it)

Posted by ipso facto @ 16:08 on June 19, 2018  

Natural News) New legislation was recently signed into law by Hawaii Governor David Ige that prohibits the use of pesticides containing a toxic chemical known as chlorpyrifos, which has been shown to lower IQ levels in children.

Senate Bill 3095 is the first of its kind in all 50 states to take direct action against chlorpyrifos, which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned for most household uses in residential areas 18 years ago. It will now be prohibited from commercial use on all of the Hawaiian islands.

I wasn’t going to post here anymore or at least till Richard who was our friend and would help anyone in his own way. Least got a apology and came back but have to say prayers to your wife. This is not about anyone else right now it’s about you and your wife. Hope she can pull through. For now prayers and stay positive in that if she does pull through she will probably need home care to prepare. Keep in mind Alex words as well as make sure she is not in pain and is comfortable. Take care of yourself too because she’ll need you.

On a brighter note , today

I had put in a lowball , silver related bid , as a ‘good until cancelled’ order a few weeks ago , then forgot it . My bid was accepted today , and the stock bounced back up a few minutes later . Pure Luck – No Skill.

Richey is an old friend of ours. What you said was totally uncalled for. I hope it was because you are on medication for back pain or a tooth ache.

I feel for you. I know what you and Mrs. Buygold are going thru. It’s a night mare for you, and 1000 nightmares for her. I had a similar situation last year, (not mentioned here) and still not out of the woods, but better. Hopefully better for you too.

After Afghan ceasefire gamble, prospects rise for U.S.-Taliban talks

Posted by ipso facto @ 12:37 on June 19, 2018  

I’m sure most of you guys saw the pictures of the Taliban and Afghan gov troops chatting and laughing during the Eid al-Fitr religious holiday. Taliban soldiers wandered freely about the cities. I would guess that the Taliban leaders who are entitled to some measure of power if a peace agreement is signed would like to have better lives, not constantly being under threat from the sky. That must be getting tiresome after so many years. Let Peace break out!

Also concerning the arrival of Al-Qaeda and ISIS in Afghanistan it makes sense for the Taliban to negotiate now in order to control the situation as regards to the foreign groups.


KABUL/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Prospects have risen for negotiations between the Taliban and the United States after Afghan President Ashraf Ghani called a ceasefire and allowed militants to roam into cities in a gamble to encourage peace talks.

The Taliban, ousted from power in 2001 by U.S.-led troops, insist that any negotiations with what it calls the “puppet” Afghan government on a peace plan can begin only after talks with the United States about withdrawing foreign forces.

Analysts and Western diplomats said Ghani’s offer to hold unconditional peace talks had set the stage for U.S. officials to open backchannel negotiations with the Taliban, despite Washington’s policy that peace talks be Afghan-led.

“Ghani has done his bit,” said Thomas Ruttig, co-director of Afghanistan Analysts Network, an independent think tank.

Buygold – I thought something was going on behind the scenes

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 12:27 on June 19, 2018  

Very sorry to hear of your wife’s precarious situation . VERY !

I was in your shoes twelve years ago and I PRAY your wife has a better outcome . Do all you can to make sure ICU nurses and doctors are truly attentive to your wife . I will say no more – in my wife’s case , lack of attention to monitored vital signs ultimately resulted in her death a day later.

I hesitated to even say that , with all you are dealing with , but if it helps save your wife’s life then it is worth watching their activities closely .


Posted by ipso facto @ 11:36 on June 19, 2018  

It’s a crazy twisted world we live in! Not a lot of it makes sense and I’m expecting that to continue.

“Turks servicing the F-35s” LOL

I expect the Lefties will be going crazy during Trump’s visit.


Posted by Maddog @ 11:30 on June 19, 2018  

Re Turkey may quit Nato

Trump is gonna visit the UK @ 12 July and one thing they thought of showing him was our supposed great new Aircraft Carriers, until they realised that we don’t have any planes on them and that he has 10 way larger Carriers already, full of planes…..the 4 F35’s we do have have yet to be fitted out and guess who is doing the maintenance and servicing……not anyone in the UK, oh no some genius has given the contract to……. errrrr ……Turkey !!!!!!

BuyGold, my prayers are with you!

Posted by silverngold @ 10:56 on June 19, 2018  

I lost my wife 24 years ago and it changed my life forever. I wish your wife a speedy recovery but in the end “Thy will be done”. IMO everything happens for a reason. All best wishes from Silverngold!


Posted by Portugeezer @ 10:25 on June 19, 2018  

Sorry to hear your news.  I hope you have good news to post over the next few days and that your wife has the strength to get back to a good life-style.

My thoughts are with you both


How long is Turkey going to be in Nato? If they tell us to vacate Incirlik that would be a good thing. We’d be taking our nukes with us out of the country.

US Senate Blocks Sale Of F-35 Jets To Turkey Due To Russian Missile Deal

One month ago, in the latest sign that Turkey is seriously considering leaving NATO as its relationship with the security bloc (and the US in particular) continues to deteriorate, Turkish Prime Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu warned in early May that the country would retaliate if a bill being pushed by House Republicans to block the sale of 116 F-35 fighter jets to Turkey becomes law.

Tks for the deletion….these mkts are winding us all up..but as Buygold reminds us, there are way more important things.

Tks for the encouraging words from others.

We all have certain strong feelings on one subject or another. I don’t want to see anyone leave, although I do think we had enough of Elliott.

If we can try to stick to gold and markets we’ll be better off. Sometimes that’s not always possible.

My wife is in the ICU fighting for her life right now, second surgery today with at least one more to come and no guarantees. If she does get through, she has a very long road ahead.

Most things seem a lot less important to me today than they did a week ago.

Let’s try to live and let live.
