Well OK but first can I ask a few questions – if the gold price is falling it must mean that labour force participation has improved? Err no! Has GDP improved despite QE and budget deficits >10% of GDP? Err no! Has QE stopped and have bankers started behaving responsibly? Hell no – they will probably fail again at the mere sniff of a crisis! Has a huge supply of Gold that nobody wants suddenly been discovered? Err no in fact ore grades are declining and Germany is waiting 7 years for its gold from Uncle Sam! So with no fundamentals behind any economic recovery, a gold price at it lowest for a couple of years, and record physical demand you want us to dump it and embrace some horrendous QE bloated stock/bond fest? Yes but we have a printing press and lots of other suckers so everything will be fine, just step forward!

It was not appreciated by some of the posters. Maybe you guys will like it!

PWNED
by Squeeky Fromm, Girl Reporter

Quick, Maw! Hock the trailer!
And hock the pickup, too.
Gold is 18 hundred,
So, let’s buy an ounce or two.

And when it hits 10 thousand,
Oh, how we’ll swell with pride!
Sell it off, pay back the loan,
And buy a double-wide!

Paw, it’s Fred, the pawn shop guy.
He’s says a payment’s due.
Should we sell an ounce of gold,
Or maybe even two???

Nope, it’s 16 hundred now,
We need to buy the dip.
Hock the shotguns, and the dog,
We’ll wait and sell the rip.

Paw, it’s Fred, the pawn shop guy.
Another payment’s due.
Should we sell an ounce of gold,
Or maybe even two???

Nope, it’s 15 hundred now,
A sure sign to invest!
Let’s go get a paycheck loan,
I think that’s what is best.

Paw, it’s Fred, the pawn shop guy,
And the loan girl, Betty Lou.
Should we sell an ounce of gold
Or maybe even two???

Nope, it’s 14 hundred now,
So let’s stick out our necks.
We’ll gamble on the rally,
With some insufficent checks.

Paw, it’s Fred, the pawn shop guy,
And Betty Lou’s on hold.
They’re mad about the hot checks.
Pretty pleeease, let’s sell the gold???

Nope, it’s 13 hundred now,
It’s got to take off soon.
Nowhere left to go but up.
A rally to the moon!

Paw, it’s Fred, the pawn shop guy.
Our trailer has been sold.
Betty Lou has garnished us,
You’ve got to dump the gold!

Maw, the stuff is selling
For 8 hundred bucks an ounce.
Cross your fingers, hope and pray
We get a dead-cat bounce.

Paw, it’s getting serious.
The Sheriff’s at the door.
He says we have to clear out.
Oh please sell it, I implore!

Maw, I can not sell the gold.
The price could not be worse.
I thought I had the Midas touch.
I did. . . but in reverse.

. . . .

Paw, this cardboard box, it leaks.
The sidewalk’s awful cold.
I’m about to starve to death,
Too bad we can’t eat gold.

Maw, I know just how you feel.
My pillow is a log.
I miss my shotgun, and my job.
I really miss my dog.

I miss my trailer, and my truck.
I can not be consoled.
All I have to keep me warm,
Is a stupid chunk of gold.

Time for me to dump the gold.
I’ve gotten a few tips,
About an opportunity
Investing in TU-LIPS.

Holding gold is about freedom. It’s about getting your money out of the debt Ponzi scheme. It’s a vote for freedom – far better than any vote you can cast at the ballot box. It’s opposing the entrenched elite of bankers and politicians. It’s about the future and the children. Pathetic article.

Well, its just naive for a start.

Felix does not seem to understand essential cause and effect in the market place.

Here’s an example of silliness.

“…………………My hope is that the price of gold will continue to fall, that goldbugs will look increasingly silly, and that as a result Americans with savings will conclude that the best thing to do with those savings is to put them to work in a productive manner, rather than self-defeatingly trying to protect what they have…………………”

Invest in the US stock market and everything will be fine, right Felix, we will all live happily ever after?

It is so sad to hear people make these lame statments.

My hope is that the people of the United States of America will finally learn to live within their means rather than racking up an 20-80 trillion dollars debt, and then exporting it to the rest of the world as toxic ‘money’ an hope that no one notices.

If this isn’t manipulation by something/someone to suppress the value of precious metals for..then I wonder what this can be..!

Anyways, no UTC…..consumption (not just hedge funds and foreigners investing in REO in major municipals) will not return. Not until people start getting better pay and feel confident that policy makers are not listening to and quoting liars like R&R.

On the other hand, what is the US Dollar? A zero coupon perpetual bond backed by what exactly, promises?

Gold is also currently the only major “currency” out there where there is no Central Bank not actively trying to depreciate it.

Admittedly farmland or something of the sort might be a better investmetn in the long run but that’s harder for an average individual investor. Gold has, or should have, some place in everyone’s else investment portfolio.
