Stocks and Precious Metals Charts - Angels of Death - And What Rough Beast

Quadraro, The Death of Justice
"If modernity is characterized by a loss of the sense of the real, this fact is connected to what has happened to money in the twentieth century. Everything threatens to become unreal once money ceases to be real.

Money is one of the primary measures of value in any society, perhaps the primary one, the principal repository of value. As such, money is a central source of stability, continuity, and cohesion in any community. Hence to tamper with the basic money supply is to tamper with a community’s sense of value."

Paul Cantor, Literature and the Economics of Liberty

"One of the most nefarious consequences of dishonest money is to destroy our ability and willingness to act responsibly in the light of our own judgments.   It has led us to replace common sense by compliance.  We have substituted the law for what is moral and what is right.  We have substituted audit checklists for an auditor’s judgment about what is true and fair.   And we have substituted phony mathematics for the judgment we once possessed in understanding the nature of value and that of risk."

Anthony Deden, Investment Value in an Age of Booms and Busts

"Advanced forms of biological warfare that can 'target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool."

Project for a New American Century, Rebuilding America's Defenses, 2000

Stocks were weak today. Global jitters and weaker than expected results from real economy companies shook bully's swaggering confidence.

Gold and silver tried to rally, and gold managed to hold a bit of a gain, as the US Dollar gained ground higher.

Politically active and publicly prominent men and women in the US would do well to remember this sage advice from George Bernard Shaw: 'I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.'

Today was an absolutely beautiful autumn day here in the northeast.

Have a pleasant evening.
