  1. Racism ageism and sexism at the CBC http://news.national...c-no-caucasian/ A casting call to hire a new CBC host that specifically said white people need not apply has been withdrawn, with the casting agent offering apologies for the mistake. The original ad for the host of a children’s show, posted on the casting agency’s website under a CBC logo and on Craigslist, said: “Please only submit [an audition tape] if you match the following criteria: Male between the ages of 23-35 years; Any race except Caucasian.” A new version of the ad removes the race reference, but maintai
  2. The price of gold has recovered about half of the drop off, buying of the physical metal is booming and the ETFs are still selling off.
  3. That's just the way is is, just like after each school shooting in the US right or wrong the gun control lobby gets to bolster it's argument. If it doesn't fit with someone world view they will run interference rather than just giving a point to the other side.
  4. Some Muslim leaders have on multiple occasions declared holy war on the westerners which they actively supported an financed, it is not the only evil in the world but the existence of other evils does not excuse or diminish Islamic terrorism, so why keep using that argument?
  5. This is a real problem, it's sad that there is a ready supply of, you could say "useful idiots" refuse to alter their conclusions in the face of reality. I hope that he is just playing devil advocate and is not truly brainwashed to the extent that his posts indicate.
  6. He fell for the bait, When there is no way to rationally win the argument for Islamic terrorists, then throw mud around and see what sticks.
  7. More Toronto Islamic terrorists stopped, similar to the Toronto 18. http://www.thestar.c...ed_sources.html The RCMP says it has thwarted a terrorism plot to derail a VIA passenger train bound on an undisclosed route with support from Al Qaeda in Iran, police announced Monday. As part of a co-ordinated effort between the national police force, local police in Toronto and Montreal and the FBI, two men were arrested Monday as part of “Project Smooth,” police announced at a news conference. Raed Jaser, 35, of Toronto, and Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, of Montreal, both face terrorism-rela
  8. Be careful, the thought police will come for you and the human rights tribunal will destroy you financially with no right of appeal, don't you know that this is just another conspiracy against the poor by evil while male capitalists that could care less about regulations that would have saved their fertilizer plant from blowing up.
  9. http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/terrorist Noun terrorist (plural terrorists) A person, group, or organization that uses violent action, or the threat of violent action, to further political goals; frequently in an attempt to coerce either a more powerful opponent, (such as a citizen or group targeting a government), or conversely, a weaker opponent, (such as a government, or even an internal citizen or group, being targeted by a larger government).
  10. I think there has to be a political or religious motivation to make is terrorist.
  11. Now it's a conspiracy against these fine young boys. Toronto "news" paper http://www.thestar.c...g_suspects.html The aunt of the two Boston bombing suspects is calling for additional evidence showing they are behind the acts. “I am a lawyer and there are four of us in the family,” Maret Tsarnaev told reporters Friday at her Toronto home. “I can’t lightly accept this kind of accusations without supporting evidence. Forgive me, but I cannot. MORE ON THESTAR.COM Who are the bombing suspects?? “Could it be staged? I have to question everything. That’s my nature.”
  12. I don't suppose that the media attention had anything to do with the terrorists picking the finish line of a major international sporting event? Much better and more PC to assume that it is just because they hate brown or Islamic people. If you think that it makes me an idiot to think that the the possible perpetrators in decreasing order of probability would look something like -Islamic terrorists -Random criminal-loon (Washington sniper type) -Right wing-nut (Oklahoma bomber type) -Left wing-nut Anti-capitalist occupy everything types -Eco Terrorists -Elmer Fudd -Mickey Mouse
  13. Yes but not the Southern Buba or Arian brotherhood type that the press had their fingers crossed for.
  14. Boston was a terrorist attack with the time and place chosen to get the most attention, impact and strike the most terror. You spin this to blame the media for covering it and drawing probable conclusions?
  15. Seems ridiculous that people are hoping that the bomber is of one race or another, I think that makes them just as or more racist than the reaction that they fear. http://thestar.blogs.com/worlddaily/2013/04/heres-hoping-the-boston-marathon-bomber-is-white-.html 04/18/2013 Here's hoping the Boston Marathon bomber is white The hunt continues for the Boston Marathon bomber, or bombers. As the complicated investigation continues, Americans anxiously await news of his ethnic identity. If the suspects are Muslims it is sure to exacerbate social tensions. And if the bomber is white
  16. 15% of miners loosing money at these prices, if that number doubles we are definitely reaching a bottom. http://business.financialpost.com/2013/04/18/meltdown-15-of-worlds-gold-miners-face-collapse-after-plunge-in-price-strips-169-billion-off-market-value/ Buying of the physical metal is way up and the opposite in the paper market. http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/04/17/us-gold-coins-idUSBRE93G15Z20130417
  17. That's life on the wire. We don't buy gold, just get it out of the ground and sell it. The value of my stocks are down a shocking amount, but even at that I'm still well in the black. If you are thinking of buying a couple of Ozs, this week could be a good time to start, as there will be a bounce at some point, just don't know if the cat will be alive or not. No hurry, Keep calm,
  18. Gold taking another big drop today even hitting the 1300's Starting to look like capitulation which is always a temptation. Ag and Pt have been dragged down too and may be a more compelling opportunity because they have more high end industrial/technological uses, Pt mines were closing even before this drop, Pt production is concentrated in South Africa and Russia, and governments don't have big stockpiles that can mess up the market. Still some room to go down but I'm thinking of buying more shares in some of the companies I'm involved with at some point soon, as a good entry poin
  19. He does cover some of the fundamentals reasonably but I've seen him argue that gold has zero value and all prices paid for gold reflect a bubble, which puts him well on the extreme.
  20. Respectfully disagree with the generality but, buying anything that shows clear signs of being over bought can be called "stupidity" AAPL at $705 anyone? It's now at $430 down 39% Gold is now $1488 off 21% from it's 2011 high of $1900.30 and this is the third time it's approached these lows since then so the case could be made that market has been sideways for about 2 years. http://www.kitco.com.../au1825nyb.html Goldman Sacks lowered their outlook for gold earlier this week and Cyprus announced today that things were worse than ever and that reinforced the idea that they might sell t
  21. Gold still falling down $50 today to $1510, Ag off $1 to $26.47 Would not want to fight the trend as this downdraft has momentum, but will be watching for an entrance point sometime over the next couple of months.
  22. I wonder if PS is reconsidering his endorsement deal?
  23. It's been a couple of years since I've been to Reno but when I was there the most games were at the El Dorado, also played at the Peppermill and Atlantis. In Reno there are a lot of locals that play and less tourists, if there is a convention or event in town that helps a lot, the last time I played at the El Dorado it was durring the street vibrations bike convention and there were two HA members at my table wearing insignia.
