Gold & Silver Santa Rally Or Lump Of Coal?

Is it about being naughty or nice, or is it about…

(by Half Dollar) We’re not doing Christmas stockings anymore.

Good riddance!

Of course, when the Kid’s Christmas gift list includes Coco Chanel perfume, which also just so happens to be never on sale, Air Jordan’s that are best purchased at some sketchy online reseller and shipped from Europe, and $60 t-shirts, which “isn’t a lot for a shirt”, suffice it to say a huge grapefruit at the bottom of the stocking followed by some festive holiday popcorn just aren’t going to cut it anymore.


That’s right folks, for when it comes to the holiday season, at least at my house, the so-called “substitution effect” is shown for the cheap parlor trick it is, and all that really matters is the fact that unlimited wants and unlimited desires eventually come up to the hard limits of common sense.

I mean, I ain’t payin’ no dang $450 for a pair of dog poop magnets, especially since it’s around that time of year when they’ll soon be sloshing their way down the salt-infested slushy sidewalk trenches brought on by the necessity of battle with Old Man Winter.


Who am I kidding?

I remember that I actually had those very first Air Jordan’s, the red and black ones, when I was in elementary school in West By-God Virginia, and while I don’t exactly remember how much they cost my mom at the time, I’m pretty sure they weren’t cheap, and I also recall wearing Dr. Marten’s that cost well over $100 when I was in high school in the early 1990s, so I suppose I’ve just got to better understand the current going rate for nice things because in reality, over time, everything goes up in price.

Everything except for silver, that is:

Indeed, according to the Ministry of Plenty’s own data, the price of silver should be around $88 right now when adjusting for inflation over time.

And speaking of time, or gifts, or whatever:

If it’s been a good year, shopping for women really isn’t all that hard.

Merry Christmas!

Hopefully we’ll all get that silver gift horse this week too…
