Just ran thru the Washington Post and the NY Times and not a peep in the Yankee Press about the Iranian warning... disgraceful - have to keep the Sheep in the dark so they will buy more at Wal-Mart-thank heaven for the International Press-Huh!

brian4,
In fairness, this story was in the US papers a few days ago, not Page 1 stuff, though.

Well if Russel is right and I do think he is, I am gonna start looking to buy all the houses surrounding mine, once my mortgaged to the hilt neighbors get to the "No Reasonable Offer Refused" stage.

I will set up my 2 boys in those houses and create a sorta Ponderosa or maybe I'll call it the Nedarosa. We'll have Ned38, Lil' Ned, Lil'Lil' Ned, Mrs Ned, Mrs Nedinlaw etc etc etc.

We'll own 'em all free and clear and live the old fashioned way.

Then when the nuveu riche Chinese entrepenuers come looking to buy we will relieve them of their yuans and simply say shei shei


Ned,

premium real estate will find support when foreign currencies are so strong that they can come over and cherry pick or market. i suspect hawaii would be a prime beneficiary (again)? could call it the pina-rosa, or pink pineapple ranch :P .
Iat least we're all safe for now. thank God we're in a bowling alley.

Re: Argentina and gold.

What's also interesting is that the third largest official repository for gold is the IMF standing at 3,200 tonnes.

WTF?

How, exactly did they get all that?

Just as a wild guess, some of the initial subscribers to the IMF may have chosen to ante up in gold instead of forex.

But it really deserves a book-length research report, as to why the world's leading opponent of gold-backed currency holds a king's ransom of it in their own vaults.

IMF: "Who you gonna believe -- us or your lying eyes?"

Indeed.

Whe I read these gold reports I feel as though I've snuck into the executive parking lot at the Ford headquarters and discovered that every single slot is occupied by a Mercedes.

What's the matter banker boys? Don't want to eat your own cooking?

:lol:


what is more interesting is that the Gold purchases are de-facto IMF financed? B)

Kianne Sadeq, who is inside the compound with other journalists at the invitation of al-Sadr's militia, reported persistent sounds of mortars and gunfire and many explosions and devastation to the streets, homes and businesses around the mosque compound.

Two of the mosque's minarets have been damaged in recent fighting, and al-Sadr loyalists said a clock in one of the towers caught fire...

Or you could buy some land next to the Kennedy compound at Cape Cod. You could call it Hy-Anus-port.
Of course I'm caustic!

Education company DeVry stock falls on weak earnings
Thursday August 19, 9:14 am ET

NEW YORK, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Shares of DeVry Inc. (NYSE:DV - News) fell on Thursday before the bell, a day after the business and technical education provider posted weaker-than-expected earnings and a decline in summer enrollment.

http://biz.yahoo.com...y_stocks_1.html

"Ever since the last factory that made actual stuff was dismantled and packed on a barge for India, the demand for welders, machinists and other non-keystrokers has hit a soft-patch", a company spokesman said.

When asked about his prospects, a recent grad said, "Ah hev not bin aybul tuh find wurk, buht thats owkay becuz DuhVry haz taught me many things, inkuludin how tuh lathe uhp uh rahful furum a rawd uv 4340 chrome-moly. Thanks DuhVry."

Not far from Gayhead, no?

...A declining spenglerian carnival of Colossaalism united with Inflation where the numbers one through 10 are forever banished as worthless arithmetical detritus from a bygone age... - Beardrech

Naturally we believe the govt numbers... and Boobus Americanus sleepwalks off the edge of the energy-crisis cliff clutching his shares of "Crisco", Yoohoo and GooGah munching on his Yum Yums and Ho Hos. Future historians will have a hell of a time figuring out what the hell Americanus neanderthalus was thinking and exactly what brought on his sudden demise... - Henny Penny

Well, good night everyone. I gotta go lube up for tomorrow's regular end-of-week Gold Slapdown and Stock Index Bear Punishment Rally Weekend Greenprint. ...Probably another Shock-and-Awe Gap-Up-Open and Wire-to-Wire Meltup Runaway Bull Charge Mo-Mo Spike to Fresh New All-Time Lifetime Highs, culminating in a 4:15 yelping scalded dog runoff with panic short-covering and legal not-held bad double fills due to fast market conditions, plus quote system freeze-ups and trading platform lock-outs along the way. *yawn* typical gov't Friday. - Shorty
