Hi headsonpikes! Good to see you.

Been looking at this gold dip with some dry powder just waiting to pull the trigger and get more.

Hope you're doing great.

Street tough: The bank? It burned. It's gone!

Nana: Oh dear.

Street tough: Now what you wanna do is go down to forty-ninth street, that's the main customer service branch. Ask for Mr. Fleming. He'll help you.

I loved that show.

With cable, I get to see three re-runs a night.

The thing I really like is that my father and son enjoy it as much as I do. It's great to sit there and laugh together.

We especially like and laugh ourselves silly when the episode " Master of My Domain" comes on. It's a hoot to see three generations laughing about the same thing.

My spouse thinks we're perverted.

I'm no fan of stock scammers, but:

1) Anyone who would buy any stock based on an e-mail from a stranger with no verifiable e-mail address and a subject line reading "pumice acutely", "single ruinous", or "steering deportation" is too stupid to be allowed to handle money in the first place, and might as well buy into these stock scams, because if they don't, they'll just blow their money on a Nigerian e-mail scam instead, and the result will be same for the "investor"; and

2) Some of these companies are perfectly legitimate (though not exactly stellar successes). These e-mail and message board scammers don't necessarily have any connection to the company which issued the stock. They're often just buying random dirt-cheap stock, spreading all this phony publicity around, which causes a bunch of suckers to buy some and drive the price up, and then they quickly sell while the suckers are still buying. This can all happen with no involvement from the issuing company, which may not even find out it happened until after the fact, and can't really do anything to stop it anyway. Attempts to do this sort of thing with major exchange-traded stocks are quickly foiled by the exchanges, but pink sheet and foreign OTC stocks just don't have anyone monitoring the trading in them on a real-time basis.

DownUnder some of our bored teenagers have turned Nigerian scams into a blood-sport. They answer the ad, and drag the scam artist along for as long as they possibly can. The objective is to collect photos and other identifying material as "trophies". Those, naturally, get placed onto a webpage for bragging rights...

How many people actually buy these things based on an email with a nonsense headline?

They send out thousands upon thousands. All they need is a fraction of one percent response to make some serious money.

I’m not an investor. People always tell me, you should have your money working for you. I’ve decided I’ll do the work. I’m gonna let the money relax. You know what I mean? ‘Cause you send your money out there – working for you – a lot of times, it gets fired. You go back there, “What happened? I had my money. It was here, it was working for me.” “Yeah, I remember your money. Showing up late. Taking time off. We had to let him go.”

Good to see you're still in the market - this gold bull has only begun to run, imho.

My portfolio is up over 100% since November, yet two of my three big positions haven't moved yet. I've caught some good moves in lesser positions, including a 125% overnight trade on a Uranium junior warrant.

Tomorrow could be brutal again in Canada, but I have a hunch that we're going to punch up again within days.

Got my gold, got my silver, got my copper, zinc and uranium, got my oilsands and natural gas - be right and sit tight!

On email filters, the free email from Yahoo.com has a pretty good bulk mail filter built in. I have used it for years and find it separates out most spam from my real messages.

My MSN has blocks also, which are effective.

The problem is, these spammers always come back for more. They are relentless. Seems that they just don't get it: even if I block them, they think up a new address & flood my mailbox.

As a rule of thumb, I never answer any ads. Period. The ones in laughably bad English, of course, are the dead giveaway.

Actually, it seems to me that the search for ways to increases penis sizes is driven by women. It doesn't make us much difference.

Building up known interests is nothing new - the problem is having leverage against companies that were nice all along, and then suddenly do something bad out of the blue. I'm sure that Ford's management from 50 years ago never could have dreamed the way today's executives operate.

There's no bottom like the bottom of the Canadian Venture Exchange dumpster. Many companies have market caps of under $2 million, and if conditions are right, an easy triple or more comes with any success in the field whatsoever.

There are also fallen angels, which burned investors keep in the penalty box for as long as possible - those are my personal favorites, as they have known assets.

new.stockwatch.com has some amazing stock screening and market info available for investors.

"but I have a hunch that we're going to punch up again within days."

I've been in an angst trying to get the best price for my wife's 401k gold fund OPGSX and I think it's time to strike. I'm not try to hit the bottom but it's looks real close chart wise.

This latest runup in gold went way beyond my experience so I got some popcorn and watched it. Looking for more of that to come in the days/months ahead.

Real glad to hear you're doing well.

I get a few e-mails every week from people I have never heard from, commenting on something I've written, pro or con. So I can't use a filter that screens out all "unknowns." I value those e-mails, and want to receive them.

I see now. I don't think that an investment group is the answer. I suppose that we should first look at what's causing the problem if we hope to provide an effective remedy. The problem is rooted in the fact that liberals have worked to gain influence with large companies and their effort has gone largely unchallenged.

The good news is that we're larger in number and resources and most of America shares our view in these matters. This is a subject that merits a thread of its own as we'd need to discuss and discover how they've managed to gain so much influence. Then it's simply a matter of using those same methods.

The challenge would be discussing it on a micro level rather than simply writing it off to large things that can't be readily fixed (they control the media, the universities, and so on). For example, I know that they made an organized effort to become members of corporate boards and have gained influence in that way.

I know exactly which emails you are referring to -- I get the exact same ones.

So I collected them for a few weeks, and I tracked the predicted results.

The results were, that EVERY SINGLE PUMPED STOCK LOST NO LESS THAN 50% OF IT'S VALUE.

EVERY LAST ONE.

Some lost much more than that.

The only way to beat the spam parade is to use a separate email address for all online purchases, registrations, etc., and never allow your business or personal email addresses to be coded on a web page unencrypted.

Well, then you need a filter with the true human-level intelligence for the analysis of incoming e-mail. It would require computer power greater than the "deep blue" of chess fame, and that might be a bit inconvenient, both space- and dollar-wise. I was suggesting a nonintelligent but reasonably foolproof solution - a filter would be passing only messages from those you have written to [assuming that it might be their answer] - and even then only the number of messages you would pre-specify, plus the messages from manually [as a protection against malware] authorized sources.

I'm all for you starting a thread on it's own and building a PING list for such topics if there isn't one.

I'm skeptical we can do more than some very serious and crucial stop-gap things in the short term but that those are very important to do.

I believe that the major international corp's evolved into such powerful conglomerates through the elite old boy network. Some secret society stuff, no doubt helped but their networks are pretty entrenched and not all that permeable. Some assert that they've been at the globalist goals we are seeing so increasingly evident currently at least 400 years.

Be that as it may, I think it would be very powerful to identify folks of great humility, wisdom, integrity, great business sense, creativity, innovativeness and kindness in leadership of companies of whatever size. I believe those folks will overwhelmingly be conservative and overwhelmingly be authentic Evangelical Christian. I believe a significant percentage of them will be Charismatic/Pentecostal.

I think we could start with FREEPERS. And all of our personal networks. Do we know anyone in the highest ranks of corporations/partnerships who fit such criteria. Few people would score high on all such criteria but high on 3-4 would be sufficient. In some respects, humility and wisdom would be sufficient.

I'm not just blowing smoke. I've thought about this for decades. It is clear from 59 years of watching that God blesses those who play by His rules and major in His majors and minor in His minors. It seems silly not to take advantage of that in at least ferreting out such organizations and helping conservatives and believers to profit from such identifications.

I think the political fall-out could be significant and crucial for our Republic, too.

WHO KNOWS ANYONE who owns or runs a company with such qualities? Let's start a list.

The spam stuff is ruthless, insideous, evil and a lot of other dispicable things. Torture is probably too kind for such spammers.

I end up changing primary email addy a lot more often than I care to. I have a yahoo alternate and use their spam filter for all it's worth.

But I think a really powerful solution is not near close enough for my comfort.
