Goldbugs"There is only a relatively small group of investors who very seriously believe that there is a high level of risk that the (financial) system could break down. You only need a relatively small group to believe this to move the price of gold." In other words, the metal's price behavior reflects the trivial obsessions of a discredited fraction of investment opinion. -Alan Greenspan
i went to your cox and hotmail and yahoo. did you get mine on all of them? if so respond on them all and we will find the one that bounces back so i can remove it from my address book and you will know not to use that one to communicate with me. this is most likely a yahoo thing. best wj
In all the talk about gun control, Chicago presents a significant problem for the left. With some of the toughest gun laws in the nation, including bans on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, gun-related deaths in Chicago were higher than troop deaths in Afghanistan in 2012, according to The Daily.
“Yes, last year we hit a record number of murders from guns [in Chicago],” Hefner said. “And this year we are already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control and may seem odd, but it is factually true. One of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer. And we are having this climate change effect that is driving that.”
Which begs the question: Is it just hotter in Chicago?
As Ron Reagan once said something like…..
“The liberals are not dumb or stupid, it’s just that everything they know is wrong”
“Our Liberal Friends? Well, the trouble with our liberal friends is not that they are ignorant, but that they know so much that isn’t so.”
Not sure if it has been posted
Senator Harry Reid has escalated the war of words over the Cliven Bundy dispute, sensationally labeling the Nevada cattle rancher’s supporters “domestic terrorists” during an event in Las Vegas today.

i blasted out my old tent email address because it got unendated with spamarama. so i blew it off and set up another one and peace and quiet no spamarama and i resubscribed to the info feeds i generally use that email for.
still waiting on RNO and he may have been using my old tent email if so it would bounce back. but i think he was using my main one which is the att/yahoo and not without its own problems also. i want RNO to send me a copy of the bounce back because the att servers might be picking him up as a spammer like they are doing with gata. more info the better for talking to the att techs. best wj
I just knew that you and Yahoo had been having fun together and then I got my AOL account hacked last week and ………………………. so just lots of weird stuff going on! :-)
waiting for reply on which of my emails your having bounce back problems? i’ll send then on the alternate. best wj
since if its my main email then more att/yahoo problems like what chris powell was experiancing in the gata blocking by yahoo and the bounce backs. i have been in touch with him for over a month now in trying to help and get gata unblocked which his webmaster is working on i’m sure daily. man o man yahoo is screwing up bad since last year when they destroyed all the forum boards with thier new and improved formats and programing. hell they just a couple of weeks ago march 31 took out my att custom home page and imprinted thier version which is bs and flawed galore. gaahhhh and double wj

Well if people don’t believe they are trying to brainwash kids in school.
“They say, ‘We don’t care. We’re going to go after you,’ ” he told the Times, speaking of the NRA. “ ‘If you don’t vote with us we’re going to go after your kids and your grandkids and your great-grandkids. And we’re never going to stop.”
Don’t you think his scarf matches his eyes.
WELCOME BACK ! Glad you made the trip safely – hope there is some video of the Moose wrestling – would maybe give us some laughs – uh, I meant tips in case we are ever caught in that situation. :-)
Rumor has it that you picked up a new frogette – any truth to that????
Here’s some grim reading about the EU and the Troika…..and the way they are sowing the seeds of revolution.

Howdy Tenters, Good to be back from the still frozen regions of this Country. Made a little trip up to Vermont still covered with plenty of snow. And the lakes still frozen enough to keep me from doing any fishing. But did get loaded up with Vermont Maple Syrup and Cheddar Cheese. Reckon those Rainbow Trout are safe for now.
See all is pretty much the same on the lily pad. Macroman, well done holding down the pond and keeping it safe from the wiley and wicked ways of ‘that woman’. I see the frogettes are smiling so you must have kept them entertained.
Did a little Moose wrestling while up there. Leastways, that is the story Im tellin the boys down at the Feed Store. Got half his antler before he could get out of my Jesse Ventura wrestling move. Stubborn things those Moose are. Never heard so much grunten and snorting over a little ole antler. You would have thought I was after a gold coin or something.
Well, I still have some unpacking to get to so will check back in later. Did read through a little of the Tent postings. Got this word of advice for Floridagold, ” When you are in a hell hole, quit digging. ” (grin) And get a pair of britches that fit ya. And you might want to get you a moose antler to carry around in the golf bag for good luck. Think I am going to carry my trophy around with me wherever I go. Too bad I didn’t get the matching one, could have mounted them on the front of the truck.
The Richest Man In Asia Is Selling Everything In China
Tyler Durden’s pictureSubmitted by Tyler Durden on 04/16/2014 22:00 -0400
Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,
Here’s a guy you want to bet on– Li Ka-Shing.
Li is reportedly the richest person in Asia with a net worth well in excess of $30 billion, much of which he made being a shrewd property investor.
Li Ka-Shing was investing in mainland China back in the early 90s, way back before it became the trendy thing to do. Now, Li wants out of China. All of it.
Since August of last year, he’s dumped billions of dollars worth of his Chinese holdings. The latest is the $928 million sale of the Pacific Place shopping center in Beijing– this deal was inked just days ago.
Once the deal concludes, Li will no longer have any major property investments in mainland China.
This isn’t a person who became wealthy by being flippant and scared. So what does he see that nobody else seems to be paying much attention to?
Simple. China’s credit crunch.
After years of unprecedented monetary expansion that has put the economy in a precarious state, the Chinese government has been desperately trying to reign in credit growth.
The shadow banking system alone is now worth 84% of GDP according to an estimate by JP Morgan. The IMF pegs total private credit at 230% of GDP, jumping by 100% in the last few years.
Historically, growth rates of these proportions have nearly always been followed by severe financial crises. And Chinese leaders are doing their best to engineer a ‘soft landing’.
If they’re successful, the world will only see major drops in global growth, stocks, property, and commodity prices.
If they fail, the spillover could become pandemic.
