Well if you believe in a free market then you should be pissed about any and all of this.
The truth is the markets are rigged and manipulated -- and have been for a long time.
But the manipulation of gold is illegal. The SEC is authorized to hold those guilty responsible but as we know thanks to a recent whistleblower, the SEC officials played along with rampant illegality in order to garner high paying jobs with Goldman after leaving government service.
In other words, the regulators are hopelessly corrupt and this agrees with everything else we have learned about the SEC. For example, we know they buried the evidence of insider trading in the days before 9/11.
That evidence -- among other evidence -- proves that 9/11 was an inside job. But patriots like you are too confused to add two plus two -- and so are left to escape into fantasy whenever reality threatens to expose your deep denial. MHG
