Legal weed still means paying about $4 per joint, assuming 60 per ounce (yes, I just looked it up.)

I guess I'd like to know if my meat is coming from some drug-cartel run sh*thole like Mexico or not...I have no (heh!) beef, with Canadian product...but we get enough illegal two-legged assholes from Mexico and I don't want to reward that one iota by letting in four-legged ones!!!

I have no problem with Canadian product either .......... as long as I know it's from Canada.  I buy NOTHING from Mexico if I can help it.

We use to fund the govt using tariffs and that said we could impose them on drugs since majority come from south of the border. Mine the border and watch them bitch.

Are Big Banks Using Derivatives To Suppress Bullion Prices?

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-09/are-big-banks-using-derivatives-suppress-bullion-prices

Yes.

And derivatives pose an existential threat to just about everything.  For the PTBs, everything is gamed for the greater good...the greater good being anything that both keeps the illusion going and lines their pockets with other peoples wealth...

And with prices beat down again,http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-08/silver-craters-exhaustion-capitulation-or-opportunity-ahead]especially in silver[/url]...buy it if you can find it!

There are availability issues and the premiums are not slight at present.  But I gotta go for it...

http://www.apmex.com/

If this situation continues...something will have to give between actual on-hand inventory and manipulated prices...

It starts with an earth quake, birds and snakes and airplanes. Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

Premium on junk silver at Apmex- $6. That was the spot price in 2000.  The spot price was lower through the entire 90s...  when this started in 2006 - the premium was 15-18 cents at APMEX...

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-07-15/paper-gold-etf-tumbles-5-year-lows

Buy physical, damnit...take my order!!!

Quick math tells me that in the retail sector there is less premium compared to 100 1oz Silver rounds on gold from 1/4oz - 1oz and an ounce of Palladium, so they are really targeting silver buyers...the best deal you can get is to get 500+...and even then the premium is still two digits!

I might put a call into to the local coin dealer...see if he has become competitive on the premium front...ya never know...

 ::facepalm::

I wonder how much of that 19 tons was bought with US Dollars from the china reserves?  Heck , they might have some deal where they are buying gold right out of of the Manhattan Vaults.  "Take these worthless treasuries back and give us gold for them or we crash the whole thing right now! "

Its should be noted that they are only admitting to having 1677 Tons of gold.  The US still claims to have over 8000 tons and stores most of the gold for Europe ( which would be another 6000 tons)  but really who believes those numbers? I also suspect China's number is higher as well. There is a reason everyone is working to repatriate their gold. Its also very interesting that the Fed will give the Netherlands back their gold but not Germany...

Prop up the dollar (with what, you ask tongue in cheek) and PM's get slammed.

http://www.apmex.com/

Premiums are still fairly high, but having vs not having should carry more weight.

I want to snag some more Ag.  I like Pb too!   :D

Apmex has junk silver back in stock - -with a $6.49  premium per oz.
Whoa.

The bullion silver is behaving normally -  about $1.69  over spot - which is has been for a while.
 But, you see,  junk silver is TEOTWAWKI Money - easily recognized, known metal content, and already "money" in the fiat sense.
People may not impliclty see the value of a .9999 pure 1 oz Buffalo, but a 1950's quarter is much easier to translate ..

True, but for the math-impaired assigning content-based value will require help, there will be a stupid tax on the ignorant.  A whole ounce should be easier to understand, but bartering will have to sort it through.

Uhh huh...

Well, it seems APMEX didn't get that news...

http://www.apmex.com/category/25820/90-silver-by-type

I think there is a physical dynamic at play not reflected in the "official" price that is priced into premiums...

But hey, we knew that already or the Fedcoats wouldn't be manipulating things with paper and vapor!

Sadly, nothing about that surprises me...

Well, outside of the attempt and anybody expecting a different result...
