Gold and Economic Freedom (1966) 
An almost hysterical antagonism toward the gold standard is one issue which unites statists of all persuasions. They seem to sense - perhaps more clearly and subtly than many consistent defenders of laissez-faire - that gold and economic freedom are inseparable, that the gold standard is an instrument of laissez-faire and that each implies and requires the other.

Doggie (Life) Style 
Disregard disease – Ebola, Zika and whatever else is cooking out there. Things like - rising sea levels, global shortages of fresh water, simmering religious tensions, the potential for wars over mineral resources and what a higher gold price means. Disregard financial calamity, malfunctioning governments and lying sleazebag politicians leading us down the garden path. Forget about climate change, somebody else can deal with it. Is it to be inflation, disinflation, deflation or stagflation?

Read Wikipedia on the Bank Charter Act of 1844 This officially made the Bank of England the sole issuer of banknotes in England, although it was functionally the sole issuer before then. It also split the Bank into two Departments: an Issue Department, wholly responsible for banknotes, and a Banking Department, which was not involved in

Silver and Gold Guarantee Freedom 
Silver and gold are not merely valuable commodities, investments, and media of exchange. More importantly, they are key "checks and balances" in America's legal and political institutions. The fight against the use of silver and gold as money that has been waged by bankers and rogue politicians since the 1870s as to silver and the 1930s as to gold -- and will intensify as fiat currencies collapse throughout the world -- is ultimately directed against America's national independence, her constitutional government, and every common American's individual liberty and prosperity.

  What Are The Origins Of The Terms 'Bull' And 'Bear' 
Right now there’s much discussion about whether gold is headed for a bear market after its decade-long bull run. Time will tell, but the current debate may make you wonder how ‘bull’ and ‘bear’ entered the financial lexicon? A bull is a boisterous, charging animal that throws its victim up in the air.

Precious Metal Purities
Purity refers to the amount (by weight) of pure gold or silver an object has. The most common way of describing purity is by Carats (Karat in the US). Carats are just the purity expressed in units of 24, such that 100% equals 24 carat and 50% equals 12 carat. Carats are used primarily in the jewellery industry. For bullion, the industry uses either percentages or fineness (fine being another word for pure). The table below shows the most common purities. Percentage Fineness Carat 99.99% 999

April 5, 1933 : FDR, the Great Confiscator 
It's hard to imagine a greater theft from the American people than their personal gold savings. This stolen gold was then exchanged to foreign bankers for irredeemable paper dollars. The continuing thievery by the Federal Reserve of American's productivity by debt and inflation continues unabated to impoverish and enslave us.
