    LOL! So when you say "Any reputable study..." LOL....Pot meet Kettle.

    I actually made a mistake. It should be

    Reputable is based on consensus and reputation.

    "Anything of substance" is pulled out of your ass unless you can go down the list and point out why there is no substance to every vote.

    I didn't blame the regulatory environment for all of our problems. I said charging ahead with attempts at regulation and bans on drilling/oil exploration did not help reboot the economy. But by all means, distort away.

    LOL.

    I came into this thread to state EXACTLY the same thing (as far as affecting gold/silver).

    Most of my investments are in precious metals.

    Thank you Mr. Bernanke.


    Oh sure, it sucks for America's long term economic growth.

    But thank you just the same.

    Yep, you can bet on it, in fact I'll bet anyone here that gas prices will be at or darn close to $5.50 by November. At least mortgage rates will stay low, and we ALL know that this is a good thing for the economy..

    Well that's fine because regulations aren't in the short term about rebooting the economy.
