 Buyer’s Remorse  (6)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
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.

Answer To :Robert L. - 3/22/2019 at 9:41 PM GMT
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 ?

 Coercion Meets Its Match  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
When I wet 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.

 - James Howard Kunstler - 
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.”

 The Blind Leading the Deaf and Dumb  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
The economic depression looming ahead will be violent, but it could also be very short. All that is required is for the government to get out of the way of the people, and there will be an explosion of economic activity. Look at the bounce we got from a very small step back by the government in the form of the tax reform. Think about the economic boom if a Flat Tax plan were implemented. Enormous resources devoted to tax avoidance could be put into productive money making instead of capital preservation activities. Businesses could easily plan for the future without having to hedge against changes in taxing. Additionally, the government does not produce anything, so if we could reduce government employment by 50%, then we would make available a huge workforce for productive work. Win Win.

The Federal Reserve chairpeople bring to mind Chamberlain's return from Germany prior to WW II, reassuring the British people of "peace in our time".

 The Domino Effect – Romania joins Gold Repatriation exodus
 - Ronan Manly - Bullion Star
The Bank of England, through its arbitrary refusal to repatriate Venezuela's remaining gold, has lost the trust of smaller nations. It has bowed to pressure from larger ones, providinging flimsy excuses for this failure.

 Sunset Boulevard with Chimp
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Thank you James, for Speaking of Complete Reversals to come. Those on the LEFT, defenders of ObamaCare, are now reversing direction and adopting “Repeal & Replace” by dumping the entire Obama fiasco and demanding “Medicare for All.” Those on the RIGHT, who forced us into full-blown Socialism by bailing out the Too Big to Fail Banks taking trillions of our taxpayer dollars, are now reversing direction and promising “America will never become a Socialist Country.”

 Climate Change Religion and Related Cover-Ups: What the Hell Is NASA Hiding  (7)
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
How many of the peer reviewed, published scientific papers ( lots maybe >2000 in the last few years) showing that global warming is a myth, nothing unusual etc have warmists actually read. My guess is none for most people. That's fair enough too and we will likely run out of oil and coal one of these days and I am not against solar or other alternatives. Just get the premise right and no subsidies for either side of the debate.

 Ken McGoogan, on How the Scots Invented Canada
 - Peter McKenzie-Brown - Language Instinct
One beneficial aspect of the Scottish influence in Canada is the Presbyterian work ethic and frugality. What a pity these are slowly being replaced by a sense of entitlement and willingness to assume ever more debt.

 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
Global Warmists are well meaning but mostly grossly misinformed fanatics. It has been hotter and colder in the past. They are just not looking at long enough time periods. Speak to Geologists or Astrophysicists and the great majority will tell you that there is no such thing as global warming and if anything we are heading into a cold period. The Sun is the main driver of climate change, PERIOD. PS If there was no CO2 there would be hardly any plant life. I am going for a swim.

 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
You must believe it's true because the State Science Institute did a study that shows it to be the truth. Global warming, Climate Change, call it whatever you want, it is just another tactic of the collectivists to control the people. The Green New Deal is childish in conception. Wishing will make it so, and it is your job, as an adult, to make all my childish wishes come true. You can see from this what kind of childhood AOC had, very privileged. Time to grow up. Millennials are in for a rude awakening, childhoods end is upon them.

The problem with specialization is the distinct lack of knowledge outside your specialty. Effectively you become a documented idiot savant. They invented the ultrasound scanner a long time ago and it works just fine.
