 Silver to $25 in 2019 Upon Breakout
 - Chris Vermeulen - GoldandOilGuy
Well I guess the selling of physical silver will end one of these days but I am not a buyer till it makes a clear break over 1584. OF course if physical silver continues to be sold down that figure will change.

JHK - you get 5/5 for the headline alone. Will the Swamp explode in a giant gaseous fumarole, killing all those within range of the noxious gasses? One can only hope. Stay tuned. It might be as entertaining as watching MSM reporters on election night. 😊

This time around, we have newspaper visions in common James. Mine has a slightly different twist. Wikileaks has proven themselves on BOTH fronts as a superior news source. On a "Need To Know" basis, Wikileaks published the events and the paperwork ALL Americans "Need to Know." On the second front, EVERYTHING Wikileaks published has proven to be TRUE. None of our newspapers ~ Fake as they are ~ can make either claim.

I'm having one of those throw-back, nostalgic, old school visions. I see a teenage boy hawking newspapers on a street corner yelling out the headlines: "Most Dramatic, Legendary Trial of an Innocent Man Since the Crucifixion of Christ ! !" "Get the story here !"

 The Curse of the Thinking Class  (4)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
The problems are systemic, the system itself is the problem. None of what you described, can be fixed by working within the system. Once it collapses, we will have the opportunity to make real changes to the system to get rid of the cause of many social problems. Unfortunately, those who will be making the new system will have been educated by the old system. They will be operating with their government issued blinders on, unaware of the wider field of opportunities.

 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Your questions deserve some answers James. Our problems are not just the handful of the Too Big to Fail. Without realizing how he was seeing into our future; when Bush looked out into the night he interpreted what he saw as "A thousand points of Light." He was actually looking at "A Thousand Fires that NO One is Putting Out." The fires have multiplied to uncountable numbers now. America seeded and cultivated the Too Big To Fail into this MegaCrop Harvest of Too F*cked Up To Fix.

Answer To :Robert L. - 4/4/2019 at 8:09 PM GMT
Ted - It is now close on two years ago that you wrote "I am convinced that silver will soon explode in price................the price of silver will move suddenly and shockingly higher.................by 'soon' I mean before many weeks or months have gone by"

Now what I and others would really like to know is this - what factors caused this prediction to be 100% wrong, and what change in those factors is ever likely ?

 Sucker Punch  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
It appears you left "The Conclusion" out of your conclusion James. The general public at large, the VOTERS, never believed any of the RussiaGate Bullsh*t AND are even more pissed-off that The Resistance is MILKING it for another round of Nothing Burgers. That will bring on the 2020 Slap Back : the Trump 2020 RE-election. On the down side; Trump's Mind Guides will continue to achieve their goals of Never-Ending-War Profits, the destruction of civil liberties, maintaining the fear of torture in the hearts of any dissent, and the socialization of any debt they incur. Again, on the down side: the VOTERS ~ who will give The Resistance their Righteously Deserved Slap-in-the-Face Defeat in 2020 ~ will think "we won AGAIN" without considering what THEY LOST when they won The First Time. I can't find an up side to The Conclusion.

Your story reminds me of The Lottery James: the numbers keep lining up for the Little Wins while the Jackpot keeps building. Sooner or later, all the numbers are gonna line up ~ and then the Big Event throws in The PowerBall ! ! It's mathematically impossible to avoid because, as the saying goes "Somebody's gotta win."

"the Left’s recent campaign to denigrate men as toxic and without value, especially white men wearing their scarlet letter “P” for privilege." except that its not so recent. its been in the Lefts side of the otherwise legit Women's movement. advertisements. and so-called education. for at least thirty years.

 Coercion Meets Its Match  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
"Every other effort to produce equal outcomes for different categories of people had also proved disappointing, so now progressives resort to plain coercion to force equal outcomes at all costs, and nowhere is that behavior more overt than on campus the past decade." the best part is that the commies told us at the beginning how they were going to accomplish their take-over. some of our founding fathers warned us. in the fifties and sixties i watched some of my dads friends laugh at him for informing them , and he a ww2 decorated fighter pilot. when the berlin wall came down under reagan i asked him what he thought? he said it dosent matter. they already won.

 Buyer’s Remorse  (8)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Gypsy, you give Mr. Trump far too much credit for all these actions. Who actually performed the bombing, killing, torture, and overthrowing? What agencies in the alphabet soup of the DC swamp were running the operations? The unelected government bureaucracy, a.k.a. The Swamp, is the real power, and the real problem. I believe 'collusion' is in the job description for half these agencies. Kudos to JHK for pointing this out, not letting it slip quietly under the rug.

The Phony Russian Collusion news always seemed like FLUFF : like eating rice cakes or popcorn or cotton candy. Trump/Russian Collusion was always so FAKE & FLUFF & PHONY. Where's the Meat & Potato NEWS: the bombing, the killing, the torture, overthrowing elected leaders, installing puppets, lying about poison gas attacks, making up invasion stories, stealing resources and changing regimes? Trump isn't Fake News. Trump is Meat & Potato news.

Like Indiana Jones said, when the Germans were digging for The Ark of the Covenant : "They're digging in the WRONG place ! !"

 On The Hot Seat
 - Theodore Butler - Butler Research
Good questions ! Butler has never been right and I am going back years. Silver has been in massive downtrend for 8 years and will likely be a very good long term investment when that trend changes. But that day could still be a long way off. Buy low sell high is a good maxim. Simply wait till trend changes and go all in. For me that would be Coins and small bars.

It is now close on two years ago that Ted Butler said "I am convinced that silver will soon explode in price................the price of silver will move suddenly and shockingly higher.................by 'soon' I mean before many weeks or months have gone by"

Now Ted Butler is generally acknowledged to be the pre-eminent expert on manipulation of silver prices, so my question to him is this - what factors caused this prediction to be 100% wrong, and what change in those factors is ever likely ?

When I went to Uni I received a TEAS payment (tertiary education assistance scheme ). It was not a lot of money but it helped. I also worked shifts 3 nights a week. My 2 kids are now about to come out of Uni with pretty large debts. And that is all fine if you get a job, but that may get a lot harder as the economy goes to shit.

Conservatives generally treat others with gentleness and compassion. This is often mistaken for weakness by the Left. Big Mistake. Don’t poke the bear. But the Left just can’t help it. It is in their nature. The left takes the food out of the bears mouth, and when they get bitten, propose pulling the bear’s teeth. As the president said, “I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough – until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad.”
