Remember, metals have no intrinsic value either! image The Inner Workings of the International Gold Market Bob Chapman via fleet, Saturday, Sep 25 2010, 9:28pm
We recently saw gold at $1,300.00 an ounce. That is a long way from $35.00 an ounce on August 15, 1971, just a year shy of 40 years, from when President Nixon closed the gold window. Over the past ten years gold has been up about 20% a year. Shares and mint state graded numismatic coins have certainly outperformed gold bullion. We suppose we’ll know in the final analysis what government manipulation has done to prices and results. We believe that what they have done has been criminal for which they will never be prosecuted. On the other hand buyers have had an unprecedented opportunity to buy gold and silver, bullion, coins and shares at artificially suppressed prices. That condition still exists. Year-to-date in 2010 gold is up about 17%. (story and 1 image)

Julian Assange image Be Our Guest, Julian! Raffi Khatchadourian via Kismo, Friday, Jun 11 2010, 10:38am
The house on Grettisgata Street, in Reykjavik, is a century old, small and white, situated just a few streets from the North Atlantic. The shifting northerly winds can suddenly bring ice and snow to the city, even in springtime, and when they do a certain kind of silence sets in. This was the case on the morning of March 30th, when a tall Australian man named Julian Paul Assange, with gray eyes and a mop of silver-white hair, arrived to rent the place. Assange was dressed in a gray full-body snowsuit, and he had with him a small entourage. “We are journalists,” he told the owner of the house. Eyjafjallajökull had recently begun erupting, and he said, “We’re here to write about the volcano.” (story and 6 comments and 2 images)

The report is the most absurd piece of writing in the English language, it defies reason, physics and an army of professionals demanding a forensic investigation!

text Which Bank? The People's Bank! Dale Wetzel via gan, Wednesday, Feb 17 2010, 7:21am
We shouldn't forget that Oz once had a people's bank, The Common-wealth Bank of Australia. Former PM, Paul 'deregulation' Keating, killed it off and sold it to the private sector (Wall St) then instituted the most ODIOUS banking practice ever seen in Oz -- Bank FEES for doing their bloody job! Oz banks now have a license to steal so why bother working for a living! If ever an Aussie needed hanging its Keating -- he's worse than the three little shits Hawke, Howard and Rudd rolled into one [turd]!

text To Anonymous and ALL the crewz Kismo, Wednesday, Feb 10 2010, 5:53pm
[Greetz to ALL the keyboard warriors and kiddies alike – We are ONE (we shouldn’t forget most of us started as kiddies!)]

The hacker group Anonymous, after a previous failed, but big hearted, attempt finally downed Oz government web sites with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks – got there in the end dudes! But don’t forget to give credit where it’s due, to an early pioneer hacker and warrior, the man who developed the principles/STRATEGY, code and early tools to implement Denial of Service attacks, it was his brain and skill that downed Yahoo in the early days – no one thought it could be done, another barrier overcome – there are no limits to the skill and creative minds of elite hackers! So I take this opportunity to give credit where it’s due, to the man himself, ‘mixter’ – well done, you old cunt; we couldn’t have done it without you! (story and 1 comment)

The combined navies of the West and now China patrol pirate infested waters off the East coast of Africa but to no avail it seems. Tanker Captains have altered course to avoid capture yet desperate Somali fisherman, deprived of their traditional livelihood, have extended their range and have captured ships approximately 2K miles from the coast! A record ransom of $7m was recently paid for the release of the Greek flag tanker, Maran Centaurus! (story and 1 image)

text Bernanke applies liquid palliative while Real Economy continues to flounder Mike Whitney via fleet, Saturday, Dec 12 2009, 5:31pm
The Fed's monetary intervention has created a bifurcated market. Stocks rise on an ocean of central bank liquidity while the real economy continues to languish in a small "d" depression. The disparity between financial markets and the underlying "productive" economy has never been greater. Nor has the "wealth gap", the gross inequality exacerbated by decades of "monetarist" supply side policies. Bernanke simply has no other choice but to try to inflate another gigantic bubble that will lift the economy from the doldrums on a speculative wave of zero-rate liquidity. The problem is, according to Bernanke himself, the strategy is not working.

text Cayman Island and other ‘haven’ Banks panicking! dev null, Monday, May 18 2009, 2:18am
For those unaware that Cayman Island banks offer refuge for corporate tax cheats, drug cartels, CIA and other sordid organisations – BE ADVISED! A huge percentage of the filthy cash deposited in ‘haven’ accounts has been utilised to prop up (failed) US banks – did you really imagine criminal and clandestine ‘refuge’ banks were somehow disconnected or separated from the rest of the banking world, you greedy morons? All those filthy, mega CASH deposits have been absorbed and distributed as digital numerics throughout the entire banking world– in other words, the bulk of the cash is gone! But you could always go to the FBI or other regulatory body and ‘scream’ that you’ve been robbed, or that all 'YOUR' stolen blood money HAS BEEN STOLEN! (story and 2 comments)

PDF Document The Australian ‘Banana’ Tragedy birdie, Saturday, Mar 14 2009, 11:20pm
This story is a tragedy in progress and is possibly only a minor symptom of a broader social malaise!

The Australian public is fully aware that the great Aussie banana, sold by leading supermarkets tastes like something approximating cardboard! Nevertheless, these pigswill, in-season, bananas sell for high prices ranging between $3.58 to $4.98/kilo – Woolworths and Coles supermarket chains seem to have recently aligned their prices -- an ‘odd coincidence;’ don’t you think? Is there a bloody government regulator out there, anywhere? (story and 1 comment and 1 attached file)
