  8. @sushi

    That's the same rationale my wife uses, it's on sale, so when I buy it, I'm saving you money!

  9. Works great for Goldman and JPM ( who have a shit load already ), so it should work just as well for you "slaves", who have nothing. NOT!

    What will the next slogan be "rob a bank to make a living, just not ours"

  10. Grab some cheap debt and bring home some new plastic Boardens and Pearsons! Canada has just unvieled it's new $50 & $100 bills made from plastic. I've go to admit this is a good move - Bravo Banc du Canada! http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/TopStories/20110620/boc-money-unveiling-110620/

  11. If only we could borrow by at 0% and buy silver. I will try that tomorrow with my bank manager!

    Ironically I turned my fidelity account into a margin option trading account, and suddenly I had all this money I could borrow on margin etc..., backed by my PSLV/PHYS, almost enticing me to get f'ed. Remember money is only created when it is loaned from thin air!

    We live in a perpetual Ponzi scheme! It will never end, they wont let it end!

  12. I would like some more incentive to borrow. Maybe it should say: "Borrow to get some head" Now THAT is a slogan!!

  13. Go ahead and borrow yourself into the future, because all your bases are mine. We want to own your labour/work/ideas/life forever for nothing but being a middle man who hands you an IOU. An Iou that we control.Your job isn't steady , but don't worry we got you{(r)balls that is}Need a concrete mouldy box made of cardboard ,for 1 mil,sure we will lend it to you, can't pay it back no worries ,You can eat the cardboard its made from, we already knew that you couldn't afford it already we shorted our own stock. Would you like some lube with that loan? Lets inflate the housing market even more then 10:1 income like vancouver BC Canada. Don't think about it , we can inflate and deflate this paper money so we can keep you where we want, on your knees.

  15. @SGS - about the RIMM calls

    Hi boss, I got in on the calls, buying 6 contracts @ .18 cents when the ask was @ .25 cents.

    Buying at a limit of 70% of what was going price for the ask was a good way to take the bet in my opinion at the time (as I've bought the APKT puts at market which I've quickly learned never to do again right after buying...)

    But no. The option tanked to .02 cents.

    I'm wondering. When you buy options, are you only buying if your limit prices are matched? And are you buying at a way lower fraction than 70% of the going ask price?

    Trying my best to learn the game through experience, so would appreciate to hear how you go about buying the options that you recommend on the site.

    Thanks. -PiG

  18. War is peace, paper is money, borrowing is saving.

    Orwell would be so proud. I thought that 1984 was a cautionary tale. Turns out, it was "Fascism For Dummies".

    On a side note, in celebration of the upcoming hearings on auditing the gold in Ft Knox, we updated the wikipedia page for Ft Knox and added a [citation needed] after any reference to there being any gold in the vaults :)

    Can't wait till Wednesday. I think the Fireworks may start early this year!

  19. @spyder, if we had anyone left in America that wasn't a sheeple, we would all refuse to comply with any IRS audit until the gold and the federal reserve were audited in the public view. The problem is we are all too fucking stupid now.

  24. Borrow to get a head (your's...served on a platter.)

  25. I first read that thing as "Borrow to Get Head" and just figured it was just some new stimulus program....

  26. Perhaps there is truth in it - its not the fact that you borrow - but what you do with it.

    Interesting paragraph in CaseyResearch.

    http://www.caseyresearch.com/cdd/keeping-strong-portfolio-during-currency-decline?active-tab=archives

    Paragraph...
    "Doug Casey also spoke; he laid out five “sure things” for the next ten years:

    1) Short bonds/bet on rising interest rates
    2) Short the yen/go long on Japanese small- and mid-cap stocks
    3) Borrowed money: “It’s an excellent way to short the dollar, and you get a tax deduction.”
    4) Gold: “It’s not cheap, but it’s going higher. Buy it and store it abroad.”
    5) Small-cap mining stocks

  28. CANUCKS & AMERICAN GRINGOS BORROW MORE DEBT WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD BUYS GOLD & SILVER

    I tell ya....it's almost embarrassing to call myself an American. I look around and watch the LUNATICS go further into debt.

    Here, us westerners push around worthless paper instruments like Derivatives while China and India by physical gold and silver hand over fist.

    China ‘Panda'ing to ever increasing public gold and silver demand

    Indian Gold And Silver Imports Surge By Stunning 500% In May

  29. That brochure is pathetic.

    You can borrow to get "ahead" in some cases. I used two 0% credit card checks to buy 200 ounces of silver. One's good through 11/2011 and the other through 07/2012. Risky maybe...but I do believe in the physzzz.

    btw...Mr. SGS...nice voice in your vid and thanks for the info too!!!
