Stacy Summary: Place your bets. Gold went to $1300 today. Briefly. What does it close at in NY? Will the Fed tolerate $1300?
Gold hit a long-anticipated high-water mark Friday, briefly breaking through $1,300 an ounce. But the precious metal still has a long way to go to reclaim its inflation-adjusted all-time highs.
A gold investor who bought an ounce of the metal at its January 1980 peak would need gold to advance by more than $1,000 an ounce from today’s record levels to come out ahead when 30 years of inflation are taken into account.
People who bought gold in 1980 “have not even halfway broken even,” said Jon Nadler, a senior analyst with Kitco Metals.

“The consensus is the upward trend to gold will continue as yields on government bonds are likely to keep falling and the dollar remains under pressure.”

You people need to know that the FED protects your freedom by removing the responsibility for your destiny to their decree, this freedom from responsibility is true freedom. You may choose between a 6 month government sponsored re-education treatment or 6 months prison. Freedom is patriotism, truth is loyalty, loyalty is patriotism.
Yes people we will wrap it all up in an American flag and you will swallow it happily. You are free to do as we tell YOU ARE FREE TO DO AS WE TELL

S Africa to study mine nationalisation plan
By Africa correspondent Andrew Geoghegan
Posted 7 hours 24 minutes ago
The African National Congress (ANC) will study a proposal that would nationalise South Africa’s mines, but has reassured industry that it is not yet policy.
The move to nationalise South Africa’s mines is being pushed by the ruling party’s Youth League, which wants workers to take a greater share of the country’s mineral wealth.
President Jacob Zuma says the ANC will begin debating the merits of the nationalisation proposal, but has emphasised that it is not being adopted as party policy.
International investors have been unnerved by talk of the government taking control of the mining industry. However, the ANC will push ahead with its desire to impose greater restrictions on the media.
Parliament is due to consider legislation to set up a media tribunal, which local journalists have condemned as am means of censorship.
I blame it on Tronto being hot …
Toronto breaks temperature record
Toronto residents are experiencing the city’s highest temperature for Sept. 24 since record-keeping began in 1938.
As of 2 p.m., the temperature was 30.5 C at the weather station at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, according to Environment Canada.
The previous highest temperature recorded at the airport was 27.2 C in 1968. The average maximum temperature for Sept. 24 is 19.2 C.
“It’s definitely been a warm end to summer and Toronto is definitely the hotspot in Canada right now,” said CBC meteorologist Cory Edel. “There’s a lot of warm air coming up from the states.”
But don’t get used to it, warns Edel. Those temperatures are expected to come down by late afternoon or early evening.
“There’s a cold front that will be coming through and it will drop temperatures and give us showers,” he said.

Mr FLYINGDUTCHMAN has had words for me yesterday to which I need to respond.
Right at the inception of my disquisition, you should know that ad hominem attacks, such as anti-semite , are the favorite method used by people, zionists mostly, lacking in the argument department. I won’t go there
Now, about the French…well, I don’t give a shit about them. Most of them might even be what you say they are. But you see, I was taught as a child to judge people INDIVIDUALLY for their actions, not their words or their belonging to a group.
This being established, to say that ALL French are chasing Roms to throw them out, All French were cowards during WWII, All French are vile colonialists is a sign of deeply rooted bigotry and a lack of respect for those French resistants who fought and died.
Dividing people by exacerbating patriotism is an old tool used by the PTB. I refuse to go there. Patriotism is a word I crossed out of my vocabulary. You see, I have three passports and pledge allegiance to none of these countries. I only pledge allegiance to those who fight for freedom and the truth.
The Truth, Mr WOEFRL, not the variety you are taught in the history books, such as Americans saved Europe, but the Truth that some INDEPENDENT researchers have tried to unearth, sometimes, at the risk of their lives. The unnecessary bombing and utter destruction of French and German cities with no German military presence are crimes against humanity, pure and simple.
“At the conclusion of the Nuremberg trial of 1945-1946, the respected British weekly The Economist cited Soviet crimes, and then added, “Nor should the Western world console itself that the Russians alone stand condemned at the bar of the Allies’ own justice.” The Economist editorial went on:
“… Among crimes against humanity stands the offence of the indiscriminate bombing of civilian populations. Can the Americans who dropped the atom bomb and the British who destroyed the cities of western Germany plead ‘not guilty’ on this count? Crimes against humanity also include the mass expulsion of populations. Can the Anglo-Saxon leaders who at Potsdam condoned the expulsion of millions of Germans from their homes hold themselves completely innocent?… The nations sitting in judgment [at Nuremberg ] have so clearly proclaimed themselves exempt from the law which they have administered.”
One of the odder elements of American thinking is the widespread belief that the United States never fights wars for itself, only on behalf of others. Iraq is a war fought “on behalf of” muslims and so, we are now told, is Afghanistan. Bosnia and Kosovo were wars “for” the “muslims” and the Kosovars and nothing to do with the need to find something for NATO to do or thrill an American president denied his place in history by the absence of any great conflict. Before that, there were the small wars to “save” Grenada and Panama. Before that still, to hear some people talk, you’d think that the American presence in Vietnam was only about “saving” the South Vietnamese.
Torture, rape, theft were rampant amongst American troops during WWII (and still are today)
Hollywood has rewritten history and people swallow it, hook line and sinker…
The Nuremberg Tribunal declared that “To initiate a war of aggression . . . is not only an international crime; it is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole.”
That the United States has failed to come to terms with its war crimes in Iraq only sets us up for a repeat performance. For a nation that lives by laws and the esteem of allies to act like an outlaw will ultimately undermine its own foundation. It is like playing golf in a bathroom– you’re going to end up with a lot of self-inflicted bruises.
I am sure this will shock you, but as soon as I saw your link, farang said to himself: “a dollar to a donut this judge is _ewish.”
You tell me:
“In August, Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle said she did not have enough information to sign off on the deal. On Friday, Huvelle reportedly said she would “ultimately approve the settlement” if both sides adhered to disclosure and accountability policies that would prevent a similar event from happening in the future.”
Think Segal may happens to meet my “crystal ball” WAG?
Like it isn’t obvious, like I wouldn’t know my own country…too bad DTT doesn’t work on scumbag Americans.

Where the last few bombs thrown on German cities necessary? Well, maybe not. Was the destruction of vietnamese villages ok?. Of course not. But that´s the evil thing about war, it awakes the dark side even inside the good guys. But to get rid of the nazi-scum in Europe wouldn´t have been possible without the US, so i really don´t know why you are denying this fact.
Think you meant “Gold at $3100?”
Sorry to respond with some delay, I am traveling.
What makes you think that the Germans THEMSELVES would not have gotten rid of Nazis; I understand that they grew not to like Hitler very much. Like the Blacks of South Africa got rid of apartheid and the East German of their communists, I am convinced that Europe did not need Yanks to come to the “rescue”.
They only intervened to avoid the Russians reaching Brest.
