This CNN report, "25% of physical gold buyers are crazy, metals executive says" has Peter Hug of Kitco speaking plain truths about truthers, being honest about the honest money brigade, de-bugging the goldbug world. Your extract:
And of course the goldlovin' mouthbreathers who faithfully follow Dubya's binary Either-With-Us-Or-Against-Us gospel worldview are up in arms now (and Peter Hug, that expression can be taken quite literally so be careful), organizing Kitco boycott petitions (ah those online petitions, they never fail to alter the course of humanity) and suchlike when all Hug had the temerity to do was to be honest. Nutbars are attracted to goldbars like flies to a large fetid pile of elephant excrement lying in the middle of a road just outside Mumbai. We all know that, so get over it people.
