No Gold Embezzled From Fort Knox since 1999...

"...Many gold investors suspect that the US has periodically attempted to flood the market with Fort Knox gold to keep prices low and the dollar high - perhaps through international swap agreements with other central banks - but facts remain scarce and the US Treasury denies that any such meddling has gone on for at least the past decade.

"...for at least the past decade."

I don't care who you are, that is funny right there.

It translates well, too-

"I haven't raped any eight year olds for at least the past decade".

"Murder? No, not for at least the past decade".

"Steal from the company during my 23 years as comptroller, Boss? No way, for at least the past decade".

My mom was a QVC addict. She happened to buy a few swiss pure gold ovals which have been sitting around my house for years going up and up in value. Those and a strange Japanese print on silk which has also appreciated quite a lot are the only wise purchases she ever made.
