    My interests are in PM hedging, reasonable prepping, and guns and ammo. Current concerns are currency resets and .gov changing the rules regarding PM ownership. I am a hobbyist builder of the FAL rifle.

    It looks like I came to the right place.

    Psst! The correct answer is building 7 collapsed in its own footprint as a result of controlled demolition. Hurry and change your answer before EO sees it! (don't tell him I told you)

    Here is an e-mail from FDNY Chief Daniel Nigro...


    Regarding WTC 7: The long-awaited US Government NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) report on the collapse of WTC 7 is due to be published at the end of this year (although it has been delayed already a few times [ adding fuel to the conspiracy theorists fires!]). That report should explain the cause and mechanics of the collapse in great detail. Early on the afternoon of September 11th 2001, following the collapse of WTC 1 & 2, I feared a collapse of WTC 7 (as did many on my staff).

    The reasons are as follows:

    1 - Although prior to that day high-rise structures had never collapsed, The collapse of WTC 1 & 2 showed that certain high-rise structures subjected to damage from impact and from fire will collapse.

    2. The collapse of WTC 1 damaged portions of the lower floors of WTC 7.

    3. WTC 7, we knew, was built on a small number of large columns providing an open Atrium on the lower levels.

    4. numerous fires on many floors of WTC 7 burned without sufficient water supply to attack them.

    For these reasons I made the decision (without consulting the owner, the mayor or anyone else - as ranking fire officer, that decision was my responsibility) to clear a collapse zone surrounding the building and to stop all activity within that zone. Approximately three hours after that order was given, WTC 7 collapsed.

    Conspiracy theories abound and I believe firmly that all of them are without merit.

    Regards, Dan Nigro
    Chief of Department FDNY (retired)

    http://911guide.googlepages.com/danielnigro


    In pure conspiracy theorist form, the second paragraph on this page has been taken out of context. Yes, building 7 fires were unfought but that doesn't mean there wasn't firemen on the scene, does it? Daniel Nigro said there were RESCUE OPERATIONS that were ongoing. He also says it was HE and not Silverstein who ordered the firemen out.

    "I ordered the evacuation of an area sufficient around to protect our members, so we had to give up some rescue operations that were going on at the time and back the people away far enough so that if 7 World Trade did collapse, we [wouldn't] lose any more people." -Chief Nigro

    There is more than enough evidence that there were firemen around Building 7 to "Pull" from the area.

    "We had to be very forceful in getting the guys out. They didn’t want to come out. There were guys going into areas that I wasn’t even really comfortable with, because of the possibility of secondary collapses. We didn’t know how stable any of this area was. We pulled everybody back probably by 3 or 3:30 in the afternoon. We said, this building is going to come down, get back. It came down about 5 o’clock or so, but we had everybody backed away by then." -Chief Hayden

    What part of this is difficult for the people who purport to be scholars? While my grammar is admittedly poor, the conspiracy theorists reading comprehension seems to be worse. Or is it? I think they're hoping everyone else has poor reading comprehension. For those who are reading comprehensionally challenged let me clear this up for you.

    The firemen started search and rescue operations for people who may have been trapped or hurt in Building 7. By 2:00PM they knew the building was going to collapse and PULLED them away. These are the firemen saying this. Not me, not Bush, but the firemen.

    Also, it's mere coincidence that the Enron court case files/records were kept in building 7.

    A lot of things were in that building. But I don't think explosives were one of them. If you read the testimony and listen to the remarks of the firefighters who were there, they called collapse before it happened. So in order to believe the theory that there were explosives, you have to also believe that the firefighters were in on it. I don't and I have never seen any evidence that there were any explosives there. That building, along with buildings 4, 5 and 6 were all severely damaged by the collapse of 1 and 2. The firefighters cleared the area at 3:30 because they feared the building was going to come down. Larry Silverstein had nothing to do with that.

    Going to ask if the moon landing was faked and if we really live on a flat earth next? I have seen people actually argue both of those things on here before. You can actually find pretty decent information on here, but there is a lot of silly nonsense too.

    It's just a movie reference metaphor (the Matrix). Red Pill = Reality. Blue Pill = contrived fantasy land.

    OK, thanks for the Bldg 7 and Red Pill explanations.

    Why you would dump these topics on a new member, I'll not investigate. I thought this was a PM forum, with related discussions regarding reasons for obtaining PM's.

    And the various conspiracy theories, without end, are subjects I avoid at all cost. Maybe I don't belong here.

    P
    Maybe true,but IMO the current fractional reserve system,Wall st,monetary policies etc ties into many so called conspiracy theory's, which lead many of us to discover the value of PM's and what they mean to own them.

    Also there are good categories here that pertain only to bullion, coins and the like and you don't have to wade in the deep end on other subjects.

    Good question.
    Why ?
    Because in some way, some how, all the peripheral intel posted here,
    affects the current value levels of metals as well as your sense of stacking urgency,
    As well as other things it does .....like the general thought mechanisms and actions of our society.
    "SSU " Sense of Stacking Urgency...yeah, I like that.
    Its ALL related, kinda like tea leaves only diff. Its ALL connected and has
    something to do with the price of tea in China
    You would be suprised how some totally ( seemingly ) unrelated item to
    that price in the upper right of this screen would all of a sudden make a correlation and connection in your thinking at a random time.
    JMHO,
    Regards friend, and welcome !!!!

    Welcome aboard.

    You have possibly, inadvertently stumbled upon one of the main reasons that PMs have had such a rough time with credibility.

    Gold bugs have been associated with conspiracy theories and other assorted wacko-birds on the loony fringe- and rightly so.

    Metals don't have a chance of really going main-stream as a serious financial instrument until that image fades.

    I hope you can help.

    This place is whatever you want it to be. If you want only PM's then hang out in that area.


    Remember, a 'conspiracy' is only a conspiracy until it's proven true.


    An easy conspiracy is the price of gold is NOT manipulated.

    You don't have to be brilliant to know it IS manipulated.

    There's naked shorting. There's the Plunge Protection Team. It's a competing currency to FRN's.
    Against the COMEX rules there's been more paper silver or gold sold into the market than exists in the world!

    You're not crazy to 'believe' your lying eyes when there's a bevy of data that prove otherwise.


    There's a lot of things that make one go "Hmmmm" and folks like to hash them out here.


    It doesn't make GIM2 a bad place. Just set a spell and you'll learn by osmosis....


    btw did you know margarine is better for you then butter?
