Got Gold?


Chart found at The Bullish Bear

The thought occurred to me that the prospect of America, finally, standing up for itself by accessing its crude reserves could lower oil prices, in the near term.

Gold miners have been hit hard by rising expenses resulting from high oil prices. As you can see from the chart above, the ratio between oil and gold has averaged 15. It is currently at about 6.4.

Think about that for a moment. Traditionally, one ounce of gold buys 15 barrels of oil. Today, one ounce of gold buys only 6.4 barrels. Wouldn’t gold mining stocks benefit twice over by the spread going back to normal and lower drilling expenses? That may be why some gold miners has a good day on Friday.

Then there’s the oil/gold ratio, which hasn’t been this high since the summer of 2005. That was an excellent moment to buy gold, incidentally, and one when oil prices stalled for a time.

Leave it to the politicians to, finally, get something right after being wrong for decades.

Saltzman & Giusto: Rules What Rules!

City commissioner Dan Saltzman asked his colleagues to delay their vote, for up to six weeks, on taking $19 million from downtown and Pearl urban renewal districts (URDs) to build a school in the David Douglas school district. The school district has no geographic ties to the URDs and faces massive law suits if approved.

Saltzman rolls out the “greater good” theory, just like they do in eminent domain cases:
The Oregonian quotes him saying

“It’s troubling to allow the future of families and schoolchildren of David Douglas to be left to lawyers, legislators and lobbyists,” Saltzman wrote in a letter to fellow commissioners.

Another Oregonian that doesn’t like the rules is Multnomah County Sherriff Bernie Giusto.

…Sheriff Bernie Giusto declared Friday that he was above the rules as he unsuccessfully fought a charge that he violated state ethics laws by using his county-issued sport utility vehicle for a personal trip to Seattle.

“The policy is either in effect because I say it is or not in effect because I say it’s not, because I am the sheriff,” Giusto said.

Socialists and mini-dictators are Portland’s lot!

Anchorage Sets New Record

Is Anchorage experiencing “global cooling”?

We haven’t had to wait this long for a 70-degree day since 1993, when the mercury hit the 70s for the first time on June 19th.


Landslide Result of 7.2 In Japan

Dr. Robert Hirsch Speaks About Oil

Dr. Robert Hirsch, author of “Peaking of World Oil Production: Impacts, Mitigation, and Risk Management” was on CNBC talking about peak oil and predictions for future oil prices:

In May Dr. Hirsch was on CNBC and predicted gasoline at much higher prices. Take a look:

The politicians are waking to their constituents demand for supply with calls for offshore drilling. It will be up to all of us to figure out how to thrive with $12-15 gasoline.

Update:


Drought Continues In Georgia


Lake Lanier

When I last visited the Georgia drought, it was in October of 2007 and State climatologist David Stooksbury was “predicting the drought could worsen if “La Nina” conditions develop and bring little winter rainfall.”

The AJC reports today

The drought is reintensifying, with a hot and dry early July on the way, said Andy Ashley of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Lake Lanier, already at 14 feet below full (is) setting daily record low levels…

Besides the lack of rain, a big problem is evaporation. Lake Lanier, the reservoir created by Buford Dam, is the main water source and loses 193.9 million gallons of water a day. By comparison, Gwinnett County – one of America’s fastest-growing counties for the past 20 years “withdrew an average of 74.2 million gallons a day from the lake in May.”

Some have predicted a large out-migration due to the drought. Stay tuned!

Karl Marx Lives!

The city set up a Urban Renewal District in downtown Portland and the Pearl. “Oregon law says cities and counties can set aside property taxes from an urban renewal area to pay for improvements to spur growth in the same area.” Now the City Council wants to take $19 million and build a school in a poor part of town that is not connected by geography or interest to the urban renewal districts.

The Council is charting new territory citing David Douglas’ need and inability of the school district to care for its own. I commend the Council for its desire to help, but this is not a legal or philosophical way to achieve its ends.

In all the discussion I’ve read, pro and con, I don’t recall anyone congering up the ghost of Karl Marx, but it sure fits. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need (or needs) is a slogan popularized by Karl Marx in his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program. The phrase summarizes the idea that, under a communist system, every person shall produce to the best of one’s ability in accordance with one’s talent, and each person shall receive the fruits of this production in accordance with one’s need, irrespective of what one has produced. In the Marxist view, such an arrangement will be made possible by the abundance of goods and services that a developed communist society will produce; the idea is that there will be enough to satisfy everyone’s needs.

The Council has gone too far and will be shown the door to the courts before this is over.
