Fed Playbook Unlocks Gold Treasure…This Is Die Hard All Over Again

Posted by AGORACOM at 10:30 AM on Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

In the original Die Hard, Theo, the gang’s technical mastermind, begins disabling the sequential vault locks, warning Hans Gruber that the final electro-magnetic based lock will be impossible to bypass. Hans Gruber tells him not to worry and to continue cracking the first 6 security measures.

Fast forward a couple of hours and the Nakatomi building has been surrounded by LAPD but the Feds show up (Agents Johnson and Johnson) and start running the anti-terrorism playbook. Right on cue, the duo order the building’s power be cut, which serves only to deactivate the final lock on the building’s vault, just as Gruber had planned.

As the vault door opens and reveals the treasures secured inside Gruber gleefully states: “You asked for a miracle, I give you the FBI“.

Gold bugs have been calling for $1,000, $2,000 per oz and beyond, leading to fortunes for the entire industry. Wall Street said it couldn’t be done. What are gold bugs saying today?

“You asked for a miracle, I give you the US Federal Reserve”.

p.s. Hans Gruber was a bad guy, gold bugs aren’t. They just both knew where the money was.

    This will prove to be a big winner. Company must learn to disseminate news in a manner that is more “user friendly”-the news on Kenville was outstanding but only a geologist could understand it. Rick.
