Ok, Dave, you caught us. This is 'Gangster America'. Everything is rigged. Reality is a facade. It's like the Truman Show, but without cameras.
The reality that the FED in concert with a large Bank moved 400 tons of gold in a naked short sale to manipulate the commodities market with a COMEX trade. That'd be the reality. Check with KITCO. The bank is usually Goldman Sachs or JPMorgan. In the land of "free markets." Maybe your hatband is too tight and shutting off circulation, or not.
Gee, this must mean everybody has 400 tons of gold lying about to deal with. Ignorance is contagious and I'm a little concerned that noone on this board knows squat about gold, money Comex, fiat currency, their private corporate Federal Reserve Bank, naked short sale, right there in front of God and everyone and they's dumbed down enough to think it's harmless. "Ignorance is bliss." Was that Hawthorne or Plato? Sometimes the wrong shampoo in high mountain air will cause the curls to be too tight, eh?
