# 193 out of 193...

Post by greg~judy » Wed Oct 29, 2014 1:32 am

here's something of note <from the c.i.a.>...
this is way, way to poignant not to share...
:|
Country Comparison :: Current account balance


Current account balance compares a country's net trade in goods and services, plus net earnings,
and net transfer payments to and from the rest of the world during the period specified.
These figures are calculated on an exchange rate basis.
now please consider - out of 193 countries...
which one country has the WORST current account balance <i.e. #193>...
ok - you'll get three guesses <but the first two don't count>...

Well, the next prognostication by certain financial seers is to watch the December COMEX gold futures contract. First notice day is in two weeks. This camp of seers say this will be the end of the paper gold market.

No matter what happens or doesn't, I have my confortable stress free seat to watch the show from...
There are two ways to be fooled.

One is to believe what isn't true;

the other is to refuse to believe what is true.

Nothing. Mostly confirmed my bias. Sometimes I measure others' brilliance based on how close their views align with my own.

And I agree with EEUU, there's a big difference between physical gold/silver and paper that purports to follow/deliver the same.

'Police Officers Draw Guns During Unannounced ‘Active Shooter Drill’ At Elementary School'

Parents were notified of the drill through email after it was over, ...
Let me paraphrase Chilean writer Pablo Huneeus: 'If they really believe it was such a great idea, don't stop at elementary schools, do the same at the university and during a City Council meeting.'


Edit: I believe I am paraphrasing a different Chilean writer, but I don't remember his/her name.

Yeah, and about 80% do not get the concept of tongue in cheek.

Won't happen; there is much more money to be "made" and many more draconian population controls to put in place. Peace does not serve that agenda.
