"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

JP Morgan confirms the obvious - Gold is real money

DJ JP Morgan: First Tri-Party Agent To Accept Gold As Collateral

Mon Feb 07 10:00:47 2011 EST

  LONDON (Dow Jones)--JP Morgan Monday said it has become the only tri-party
agent to accept physical gold as collateral against securities lending and repo
obligations with counterparties.

  The company said in a statement that it expects to accept additional precious
metals and commodities as collateral later in the year.

  "The ability to finance and leverage the broadest range of asset classes is
important to our clients. Many clients are holding gold on their balance sheets
as an inflation hedge and are looking to make these assets work for them as
collateral," said John Rivett, collateral management executive at J.P. Morgan
Worldwide Securities Services.

  1. That's funny Dan. I can't wait to get down to the Morgue and give them some of my gold in exchange for some dollars! Hahaha...wouldn't they love that. Then they can use my gold elsewhere and I'll never see it again! Jeezum!
