    Nope I am here. Now, I guess I will have to come up with something to show how up to date I am on the issues burning before the American Public. Give me a few seconds I will will come up with something astute.

    Well, if small businesses are having such difficulty, then it is most obvious to the casual observer that the problem is with the "SMALL"

    Small Business needs to become BIG BUSINESS to avoid all of these problems. Small is weak and Big is strong.

    There, that is the solution.

    I'm shorting silver right now, just for a near-term trade, and have sold all my gold holdings which I intend to repurchase in the future, but I have owned the Swiss based ETFS gold ETF, and I have considered buying physical gold and putting it in storage in Canada.

    I bought gold eagles (around $500) and have them in physical storage.

    Any thoughts on the more exotic metals that actually have industrial uses?

    Lithium, for example, seems like good play in the long run given its use in battery tecnology.

    Not a clue how it looks in the near term, of course, since I am not a player and don't follow the industry stats.

    I agree with your short position on silver, BTW.

    Wow...that is a really dumb statement.
    Big business does one thing extraordinarily well...concentrates wealth.
    Big business also dramatically reduces profit % in an industry and turns into volume-based profits which are usually about 10% of what the industry profits were prior to sucking up competitors.
