Subject: APMEX – Gold Reaches New All-Time High!

Dear ferdinand,

Gold reaches a new all-time high of $1271.70 today, breaking the previous record high of $1265.50 on June 21, 2010!

This is due in part to economic concerns in Europe and the weakening U.S. dollar index. Accordingly, gold experienced an upward surge this morning.

A Bloomberg survey of 29 financial investors, traders and analysts have predicted the yellow metal may rally as high as $1,500.00 next year. Demand for physical gold is expected to remain strong as gold continues to be a safe haven investment for long-term and short-term investors alike.

Don’t miss this opportunity to lock in your prices on gold today!

SERIOUSLY CONSIDER adding to your gold portfolio. A wide selection of investment grade gold bullion is available 24/7 at!

Suggest a few coins — gold or silver — stashed somewhere is appropriate. And, “accredited investors” (how wall street describes fat cats) should have 5 to 15% in “commodities”. For us poor people, we should be laying in a supply of nickels. (Yeah, a nickel is worth more than five cents. The Gooferment hasn’t gotten around to making them “slugs” yet.)

For those who think my tin foil hat is strapped a little too tight, please review the monetary history of the French Kings from Louis 1 to Louis 17. The French Franc started out as a gold hockey puck and wound up as a collar button that was so thin it almost qualified as “gold leaf”. We know how that worked out for the French. Little tough on old Seventeen and his gal Marie. The serfs didn’t do too well either.

Then tell me how the “American Kings” (i.e., the politicians of both parties and the Federal Reserve System — think banking monopoly) aided and abetted by Wall Street have managed to destroy the American Greenback Dollar, which has lost 98% of its purchasing power since 1913.

And my tin foil hat is the problem?

How much is penny candy these days? Does anyone EVER remember “penny candy”?

“Mr. Fenton’s public actions violated New Jersey Transit’s code of ethics,” an agency statement said.

“NJ Transit concluded that Mr. Fenton violated his trust as a state employee and therefore [he] was dismissed.”

Fenton was ushered from the protests by police on Saturday and questioned, but he was released without charges.

“He said, ‘This is America,’ and he wanted to stand up for it, in a Tea Party kind of way,” a police source said.

Another police source said Fenton described himself as a “loyal American” exercising his “right to protest.”

Guess the State bureaucrats haven’t heard of the First Amendment. No matter how offensive the speech, we have to protect it. The worst thing is for the nut jobs to be silenced and go underground. Didnt’ work in the USSR, won’t work here. Let everyone speak their mind and the Gooferment should stay out of it.

For the record, this guy is a bozo. But he had the Creator given right to demonstrate his bozoness!

RANT: Women need no help; just an awakening to their personal power

*** begin quote ***

Imagine this frightening scenario and try to envision yourself here: You’re strolling through an empty parking lot at dusk thinking about the events of the day when suddenly your arm is clasped from behind and pulled forcefully downward. Your head crashes against the unforgiving concrete. Blood gushes from your nose. Before you have a moment to process anything, your attacker is now on top of you, beating your face with open fists. Gasping for air from fear and excruciating pain, you scream and slap him in an aimless attempt to shield yourself, by which time he has secured your flailing arms. His eyes are dark and empty. He barks out orders that your mind fails to decipher, while pressing the icy blade of a knife against your throat. Your shrieks of panic echo through the air, but no one seems to hear. Subdued under the weight of his body, you have nowhere else to turn. You are the next victim.

This post, cited below. should be required reading for all females of “age”. All! “women’s lib”, no victims, ever.

“So if a Bravo Golf was to try and rape your sister, you’d kill to stop him; right?” “Yes, Miss Marie.” “If someone was going to kill any of your Classmates, what then?” “I’d do what needs doing.”“Yes, we women do. Did you know John’s paternal grandmother traveled the Oregon Trail, bore 13 children, and fought Indians and Outlaws? She’s in her 90’s now. I’ve read her letters. Women can kill when it’s needed. We may not be as physically strong as men, but who seems to get to change all the diapers?” — character “Marie” answering a question in CHURCH 10●19●62 Volume 1 Page 262

Always thought women needed to have the confidence to defend themselves and their children. Guess I was always lucky to be around strong women.
