That is just not right and borders on ignorance. US government bonds are the safest investment in the world, even today. There is no other issuer of bonds that has the ability to just print the money that is due like the US government. The problem with bonds is they pay you very very little. 10 year Treasury is at a par with the S&p 500 dividened yield. On a histporical basis that means the stock market is undervalued by about 100%.

Over the long term you sure can't win at a casino either and in fact you are a guaranteed loser. At least in US bonds you are guaranteed to get back what you put into it with a little sugar on top.

Nuvasive is going to lose it's lawsuit with Medtronic....and it's patents will be lost.

heres a companion article that migh give more substance to the 'insiders' selling @ a 7-1 clip

and the highly leveraged S&P shorts going gang busters...

its all a managed & manipulated market place...meant for the massice 'Transfer of Wealth'
which is/has been underway'''

the market is collapsing (under the management of TPTB)...
first to shake out the investors... then the Traders will make the DOW just a gaming arena...

all stability will be removed...

only then will the boomers rise up and say 'take my IRA...replace it with a government voucher, so i can have at least something for retirement... thus the estimated $12+ trillion in mutual funds & IRAs will transfer to our Fed/Treas/IRS and we will get a survival rate type of government Annunity...

meanwhile the banker elites will insist that social security entitlements be reduced even further, even as the western financial hegemony strips the rest of the world with the 'Derivatives - weapons of mass financial destruction'... thus the NWO is then to be taken over by an even more sinister force = MaBus

thanks for your tolerance


as for the unprecendented # of S&P shorts for Sept. and even more for Oct...

either many will get a rich windfall... or many will suffer a gigantic whiplash as the markets spurt up 500 points in a day and another 400 the next...thus making the short S&P a margin call item during most of the last week of this, cyclical Black-September... making many more desperate for cash to cover their bets

Dont worry about Silver. I have very good info that it will be over $50 dollars by December, and $150. next year. Really, have I ever lied to You before.

oh glad i bought all that silver too....makes a nice ring in the future. i think all this goes deeper, the "whole" system is going down----every system...its hard for me to think of something thats safe. if you look around, its all proving to be false, or in decay. like everythings been tried before, left-right-center...politics/the economy/culture,

It always makes me laugh every time I see news reports of "investors running to the safety of the US treasury".

Is everything else that bad that US Gov't debt is seen as a "safe investment"?

If the entire system really, truly does crash as a whole, there's not a damn thing any of us can do that will save our butts from becoming a victim of it in one way, shape, or form.

Yes, stocking up on supplies, getting out of debt, living within your means, etc etc will aid in helping to make the pain lesser for some... but don't kid yourself into thinking that you can completely avoid its inevitable impact.

A fullblown economic meltdown of today will make the crash of 1929 look like a friggin' walk in the park.

That's a fact.
