Koala- Remember when all the Gold bug experts talked about, one day SOON the naked shorts will have to cover their positions?? What they didn't realize is that if you are working on behalf of the Gov. (banks), they don't have to cover. They just tear-up the paper and throw it away, and that is the end of that recorded paper trail.
Naked shorting the PMs hasn't stopped the past 10 yrs or more. And none of the presidents, Republican or Democrate, have stepped-in and put a stop to this corruption of the free markets.
Money is power, thats why they are stealing all the Gold at a dirt cheap price. Because Gold-Silver and natural resources are real $$$
