Those of you who follow the Silver prices know all about J P Morgan and their shorting the silver markets in an attempt to control prices.? It is going to be interesting if in fact they can keep the pricing down.? My guess is NOT.
“Then there was this… Well… the CFTC (Commodities, medical Futures Trading Commission), patient that was supposed to be our Knight in Shining armor, phthisiatrician turned out to be the stable boy… Recall, I had told you that my hopes were that the CFTC would call attention to the purpetrators of the precious metals price manipulation, and institute position limits that would be in line with what would be acceptable and reasonable, and not allow the kind of shorting to keep prices from gaining. I was singing, Don’t let me down… Don’t let me down… but… the CFTC let us all down!? The CFTC did propose trading limits, but not to the degree of what I or anyone else that follows this stuff, would deem reasonable! They wimped out on us, folks… it’s that simple…”
These next couple of months will be critical for the country in so many different ways. If the newly elected folks choose to do something about the spending and taxation at the federal level, we might be able to convince the globe markets that we are serious about making corrections to our economic problems and hold on to the Dollar. If politicians and Washington, along with the Federal Reserve System fail to put forth serious efforts in the process, we convince no one and silver and gold will become the money of exchange and both metals will go through the roof.
There is a transition underway in not only the Silver and Gold market but in the very economy of the USA. The dollar is on the brink of destruction and will have major impact on the globe economies forcing silver and gold to new heights in their pricing of those two commodities. We are on the brink of transition of trading in paper ETF’s, silver and gold paper into a real supply and demand type situation in a globe market of demand, the physical material will be king and will control the pricing.
Silver is in short supply because of it’s industrial use, silver in the last 40-60 years has been used up in various applications and the supply is down by 90%, depending who you want to believe. If you add into the mix the globe debt, the fact that the dollar is failing in its value as the medium of exchange for wealth you begin to see cracks and break downs in the financial systems.
The fact is foreign purchases of debt has been declining rapidly and the FED is stepping in to buy up the unsold bond issues. China “Dagong Globe Credit Rating Co. lowered its credit rating for the U.S. AA to A+ with an out look of “Negative”.
“Around the world, individuals are slowly waking up to the tyrannical financial system that coercively forces them to use their paper money and fixes the price of said money (interest rates). Individuals are making a cognizant choice to sell their dollars, yuan, yen, rupees and pesos and buy things of real value with the proceeds.”
Quoted from Jeff Berwick, Analyst
Silver and gold is where they will head—-it’s easy to convert too and it’s simple and easy to own—–and both will hold their value. The critical fact is how quick the people will wake up to this; knowing their paper money is fast dropping to a value of zero.
We Shall See—–don’t you think????????
This is the second article regarding “Natural Law” the link below is to the first article.
I hope to look at the confusion that falls within Christianity pertaining to the thing called Natural Law. Christians when asked if Natural Law reflects God’s glory will quickly say, try “Yes”. This quick response forces the thought of God’s glory and puts forth the image of His glory in the Cosmos and therefore natural law automatically must hinge on Him. Christians think “Natural Law” is a sub-set of Biblical Law and will be binding on all man as is the Bible. This thing that Christian men call Natural Law; think all men will be subservient to God and Natural Law, and as the Christian thinks, Natural Law can only lead to serious misgivings and is a mistake on the Christian’s part to not understand from were the atheist is coming from and were he will go..
Natural Law foundations go back to the ancient Greeks as they develop their Philosophy. The philosophical development came into being on two varying foundations; one was “Materialistic” and was apposed to the Reformation and it’s anchoring of the Christian religious beliefs on Puritan Theology and the reformers of the 1500’s and 1600’s. This materialistic view fell outside the conventional religion of Western Civilization.
Greek Natural Law prime axioms were (1) That nature dictated the reality of things (2) Man was an animal (3) Truth was changeable and could changed with time. Because of these foundational principles there was no place for a God and creator of the Cosmos, or anything that reflected the higher authority in law and God’s order as written in the Bible. Natural Law was part of nature without a God and was something to be reasoned through by man.
The second view running parallel in Greek materialistic philosophy was the idealistic tradition of Natural Law. The so called “Forms” of Aristotle and Plato, were within the realm of ideas and metaphysical thought we had these ideas and forms falling outside the material world of change and where in and of themselves eternal not subject to change.
Ethics, morals and right actions (Laws) coming from man could always through idealistic traditions (Forms and Thoughts) be found out. Man is and therefore man knows what he ought to do. Materialism and Idealism come together under Greek thinking called “Natural Law”.
We see quickly Natural Law drifted from man’s view of the Cosmos as it should be under God into something that hinges on man and his development of Materialism, reason and logic. We have not the awesome magnificence’s of God’s glory driving the understanding of natural law but man stealing the natural order of things, thinking he is supreme through reason and logic. Man has twisted the order into some process whereby man will dictate order, through his understanding of the Cosmos.
Man’s “Natural Law” has no room for any of the Doctrines found within the Bible or those wonders which might be interpreted through the natural law of God’s Cosmos. The Biblical natural law has been hijacked by the enlightenment and completely revamped and brought back to present day man using the initial philosophy of the Greeks.
If today’s Christians are to enter into debate regarding God’s law they had best stay clear of natural law and stick with the Bible and Biblical interpretations
