    China Aims For Official Gold Reserves At 8500 Tonnes

    China should accumulate 8,500 tonnes in official gold reserves, more than the US, according to Song Xin, President of the China Gold Association, General Manager of the China National Gold Group Corporation and Party Secretary. He wrote this in an opinion editorial published on Sina Finance July 30, 2014. Gold is money par excellence in all circumstances and will help support the renminbi to become an international currency as “gold forms the very material basis for modern fiat currencies”, Song notes. In the short term the Chinese will not back the renminbi with gold (establish a fixed renminbi price for gold), but support it with gold so it has sufficient credibility for the world to accept it as a trade and reserve currency.

    I absolutely love that video

    Agreed, Pearl Jam was quite an influence to many. Here's another less popular song of theirs I like - Release of the Ten album:

    Jeremy

    by Pearl Jam. I had just started coming to the USA during the summers (I was living in UK at the time and coming to the states to satisfy USA visa requirements). This song was all over MTV (when they actually played music videos). The song and video have been etched into my mind. This is when I realized there was a darkness about the infamous American society.

    2016

    In the nicest way possible, when asked about Christie, Rand just pretty much called him out and said the dude isn't even a conservative (moderate, he says). Nice! Rand is looking more in control these days.

    I have a sneaky suspicion about how they want 2016 to play out. The media is going to play the Hil Clinton v Jeb Bush, blue team v red team game at the end, but before that happens they will have all the old candidates run and take up a bunch of air time to confuse all the conservatives out there. Then they will come out with the official republican poll results and say most people are favoring Jeb Bush (even though a blatant lie), Rand will be polling in the #4 slot behind Jeb, Cruz and Romney. Conservatives won't know what the heck do do, will get scared and vote for Bush. Simple as that. Game. Set. Match. Doesn't matter which of the two (Clinton or Bush) the people "elect".

    The manipulation

    would be almost comedic if the control they seem to have wasn't so damn scary! How long can they keep crashing PMs?

    I wanted to forget to vote

    but then the Terrorists would win. On a related topic, Terrorists are on a winning streak. Especially the ones in War-shington.

    I early voted by mail

    I wanted to vote for the Libertarian candidate for both the Governor and the Comptroller of my State (Texas), so I decided to go straight party vote for the big L's. I really don't want to be associated with the either the red team or the blue team.
