Gold is a sucker bet, the Dow has crushed gold as an investment during that period. And if you also held dividend stocks, you'd have made a fortune.

You really should Google Warren Buffet and gold investing.
If...if..if....

Any investment is a sucker bet if you don't play the peaks and valleys correctly.

BTW....I'm calling Bernakes bluff that he will be ending QE soon. I don't think they can or will.

Interesting times ahead! Bubble bubble bubble...pop...bubble bubble bubble pop!

He can, but the market will crash. QE is artificially pumping it up. Investors are betting this will continue. If they just hint that they will ease up, the market comes down. QE 1 wasn't enough. Neither was QE 2. QE Infinity is our new reality. That's not entirely true. It won't last forever, but the market will crash when QE eases up. The longer this goes on, the worse it will crash.

Not sure I get your point. There was no 'if', just facts.

As for 'any investment is a sucker bet" I disagree. Market timing is the sucker bet, dollar cost averaging into dividend stocks has been the play the last several years.....and still is.

Anyone hear what Bernanke said last week?

He said -- if we raise interest rates the economy will tank...

Exactly what Baja and I have been saying for many months.

Hardly earth shattering news. Economy 101, but keep beating your chest.

Well the real story is what PCR has been telling you doofs -- the fed has no wiggle room to fix anything.

There are no policy solutions -- assuming the status quo of protecting the too bigs.

The real solution would be to step back and watch them collapse -- like Madoffs ponzi scheme

You better be deep in the woods with a lot of Rice-a-roni when that happens.

Rice A Roni is loaded with monosodium glutamate. I'll pass.

They will keep pumping up the bubble until the system gets so weird that a butterfly flapping its wings in the Amazon adds the last straw....

Right.

I have dropped all corn and soy products from my diet. Almost all of them are laced with Roundup, a serious carcinogen. It also destroys the liver and kidneys.

Monsanto has a near monopoly.

I now buy organic wheat bread -- which I am told is non GMO.

I also drink from my own private non fluoridated well water.

Please read labels BEFORE you buy processed food. If you do -- you won't buy it.

BTW, guess who was the Corporate CEO who used his sharp elbows to muscle Aspartame through the FDA approval process?

Yep, Rummy -- one of the architects of 9/11.

I'm surprised you don't make your own bread. All you have to have is a Nutrimill electric grain mill. Then you can buy 25# of wheat berries at a time. Cheap, and the bread is ten times better than anything you can buy. Better crumb. Better air. Better rise. Better taste.

Good idea.

The organic bread in the store is also pretty expensive.

And don't use yeast. Yeast limits you to a single organism and limited taste. Make your own starter and just keep it going. It gets better with age.

David Stockman - Expect Financial Collapse & Flight To Gold

Today David Stockman warned King World News that there is a great “unwind” ahead that will “ricochet” violently through all global financial markets. Stockman also predicted there will be a worldwide flight to gold during the coming panic which will eclipse the mania seen in gold in 1980. KWN takes Stockman’s warning very seriously because he is the man former President Reagan called on in 1981, during that crisis, to become Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Below is what Stockman had to say in this powerful and exclusive interview.

Stockman: “The markets are just irrationally thrashing around in response to a Fed that has lost control of policy. They have been working their way to the edge of a cliff, I think, for years now with this massive money printing, bond buying, and zero interest rates.

They are saying through 2015 we are not going to tighten the short-term interest rate, which means it will be zero for (a total of) six years. That is just crazy, almost lunatic....

Listen to the David Stockman interview here...

My advice; GET OUT OF DOLLARS. Buy rural land with water and fertile soil. Buy guns and amino, heirloom seeds, silver. Off the grid items i.e. solar panels switch small engines to propane, store a very large tank of propane. solar powered well pumps. Solar powered security cameras, root cellar. try and live amongst similar minded and prepared people. Once you have done all that sit back and enjoy life because right now is as good as it gets for a long while.

Fear of reality. You're in denial if you believe the US Dollar will be the reserve currency forever, and Americans can continue to live beyond their means like they have for the last 70 years. Anything other than that will be the end of the world as Americans know it.
