“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Some Christmas Fun

In the spirit of the season, a broker buddy of mine, JB Slear over at Fort Wealth Trading, put together a rather humorous Christmas presentation including yours truly along with JB and Jim Sinclair's face. I think you will get a kick out of it!

Enjoy...MacaReindeer!

  3. LMMFAO. Thanx for the laugh! For the record, not that anybody cares, loaded the boat with the mining shares this past week, tax loss selling and all. Send me the paper, C U @ da window in 2016.

    Merry Xmas Dan, appreciate all you do.

  4. Christmas 2013 will mark a point in time where GDX has had an absolutely, terrifying collapse which exceeds the wipeout of most any other sector in stock market history.

    GDX printing new lows as we speak.

    Gold cannot seem to break over $1,200 as it has become huge resistance now.

    1. The fear and panic which describes Gold and GDX also describes the DOW and social media stocks just 5 years ago. Learn from history and you will do well. Selling the DOW now and buying GDX may not feel right but just as with a farm it's time to harvest and replant new seed. Sector rotation is your friend!

  5. What a way to end the year. Virtual panic meltup in the "must own" social media stocks, like TWTR, FB, and the top names in the Nasdaq like AMZN, PCLN, AAPL, etc.

    Mining shares being dumped as nobody dares to own these dogs for the year end print.

    And the housing stocks also hot, everyone will be jumping on those in 2014 now that the Taper fears are over.

    This will go down in history as a bigger bubble than ever as the hot stocks are being chased up, up, and away.

    1. We will now see (and already have seen it) an increasingly large sector shift into advanced computer/technology/transhumanism type companies. Watch for this. I also think there's going to be an advanced banking industry taking shape complete with mobile applications to pay all our bills and do all our transactions via what I call THE NEW WORLD GLOBAL DIGITAL CURRENCY.

      The internet of everything is approaching...
