I guess you get downvoted because they think you write crap, and, because they just can. There's no business like show business.

Do you get the feeling we've got a couple of guys who just downvote everything? How about actually responding, instead of just a downvote?

Answer To :The Recusant - 8/15/2017 at 12:46 AM GMT
Before relegating every demonstration, anti-Trump action, and political headline to some conspiratorial element of the left, you might want to just admit that some things happen without collusion. The Virginia demonstration wouldn't have made a good page six headline if the nutcase didn't run people over and kill a 32 year-old woman.

"...make it impossible for him to do his job?" He IS trying to do his job--as he sees it. And that's what the majority of Americans (let alone the rest of the world) see as the problem.

Answer To :J. - 8/9/2017 at 5:57 PM GMT
@ Recusant - I totally disagree. Capitalism is not for business, it is for the individual. Socialism only succeeds to the degree that it does not choke off Capitalism. Once the last vestiges of Capitalism are abandoned, Socialism collapses. Socialism makes one a slave to your fellow man's need. Capitalism, on the other hand, requires voluntary participation in a transaction. If either party to a transaction is not a willing participant, you don't have Capitalism, it's something else. Call it Crony Capitalism, or Fascism, but it aint Capitalism.

 Guess What Happens In States Where Food Stamp Recipients Have To Work
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
@ Recusant, Your last sentence hints at the root problem - socialism has made (low wage) work illegal in this country. To provide a low paying job, one must break the law. Minimum wage laws and other government programs have priced many people out of the workforce. The work still needs to be done, so it must be done illegally (under the table). Much of the food production in the U.S. relies on this illegal employment. The solution is simple, but impossible, legalize work. Make it legal to work without a tax id (SSN). Make all govt. assistance programs optional, OASDI, Medicare, SS, etc......

As a left-leaning independent, community service seems like a great idea as a prerequisite for food stamps for single childless recipients. But, as the article points out, it may hinder under-the-table occupations that do not provide enough income. Someway must be found to offer assistance to those that have a low paying, technically illegal jobs.

 The Gold Industry is in a Deep State of Dysfunction, Delusion and Denial - Stewart Dougherty  (3)
 - Stewart Dougherty - Stewart Dougherty
Just hold on to it - you will win. A cautionary tale: I wish, back in the early 90's, when I took out a pension - it was "cast iron, copper bottomed, guaranteed" - with local government, that I had, instead, put it into gold sovereigns - real MONEY. Today, I would have made a handy profit v. fiat or stocks, and no third party dictating when I may access it. Under the labour government, around 2000, the pensions were raided by the treasury, and I now have to wait another five years to access my currency. If only advice like this were around at the time I signed up for that phony Ponzi pension.

That's...pretty ignorant. Gold was much higher under Obama, and seeing as Trump is merely continuing the policies of Obama (and Bush, for that matter), the future of international politics is as dark as it's been for years.

The longer Trump stays in office the greater the fears will become, the higher the price of gold, and unfortunately, the darker the future of international politics for the U.S.

Answer To :The Recusant - 8/15/2017 at 12:03 AM GMT
In a far ranging conversation this last weekend with a well-known analytical economist, Fortune magazine cover veteran, and Bernanke acquaintance, I was informed the "Big One" will hit in March of 2020 after a massive hyperinflation and bond market crash. Of course, for every economist there is an equal number of prognostications of varying degrees of reliability. I personally expected the crash to have occurred about five years ago...so much for the snail-paced movement of rational investor thinking. Balloons are meant to be popped but this enormous balloon is apparently hard to reach with a pin of reason.

 Battle of the Behemoths  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Another mindless Kunstler rant. After preaching the end of oil for decades, Kunstler was mortified that Capitalism - even under Obama's thumb - was able to discover enough oil to make America independent well into the distant future. Yet his rants continue. You see Kunstler has a loathing for individuals controlling their own lives - whether preferring their private autos to crime ridden public transit or, in this case, choosing to live in suburbia away from crime, sanctuary cities, filth, and local big governments. As for Walmart and Amazon, Kunstler doesn't like ANY form of free enterprise - especially the ones that lower costs, speed delivery. I guess he prefers the government food lines of Venezuela, or the former Soviet Union. I'm old enough to recall khrushchev's visit to America in the '60s. They took him to a modern grocery store, one found everywhere in the suburbia Kunstler hates. The Soviet dictator was astounded, thought it fake....until he was forced to realize such stores were ubiquitous in our....suburbia. I think Kunstler thinks he knows what's best for you or me, and that he'd love the force of government to back him. I suspect he mumbles these words to himself as he drifts off to sleep at night, "I'll tell 'em what to eat and where to shit!!!!"

Adding this: one can't begin soon enough. Suddenly seeing the light and rushing to Walmart is just the beginning of a long process. It isn't just food (family and pets) and water. It's communications (Ham radio), defense, sanitation, water purification, cooking and fuel, medical, personalized items, hygiene, lighting, batteries, radiation meters, barter items....and more. Also getting word out to friends and relations (so they won't be knock, knock, knocking on our doors. So, begin now and expand as needed.

 Dear President Trump: What the F* Business is Venezuela of Ours?
 - Mish - Global Economic Analysis
I'd guess the business it is of "ours" is yet another distraction to keep the public roiling over. Anything to keep Mueller's investigation on the back burner of the news. The people want sensationalized crises to flash across their news sites and newspaper headlines (assuming those archaic rags are still read). A war of any kind, be it in N. Korea or Venezuela would bury the growing evidence hype of the president's participation in money laundering for the Russian mafia. So it goes...the machinations of politicians for self-preservation.

 What Would Really Happen If California Seceded?  (3)
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
California seceding would be horrible for the US as much as for the state. As a donor state, it contributes to the US federal coffers far more than it receives, supporting the welfare states. Additionally, it supplies the US with huge amounts of food stuffs, high tech products, transportation and entertainment services. That aside, few Californians actually want to secede and would gain little by doing it. Texas, for instance, which yearly touts the secessionist line, would be far worse off by leaving the union as a federal welfare state dependent on not only public aid funding but massive fed subsidies for their energy and other industries.

 The Key Test Ahead
 - Theodore Butler - Butler Research
OK well lets presume that JPM is suppressing the price of silver and Butler is correct on inventories. Great, you can buy the stuff cheaper than what it was at the peak. Fill your garage with it. Just remember that you will be losing somewhere between 20 -25% if you want sell ita week later. Sure buy some coins if you want and you can wait but gold is a better article of faith for mine.

 Watch: Trump Was Hammering CNN In 1990 For Fake News: “When People Say Something False I Attack Those People”
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Yes, there is sensationalism in today's news media. On a sliding scale, however, the news media is far more honest than ANYTHING the Trump administration puts out. His tweets aside, statements made by the WH during press conferences are reversed or debunked within hours if not days. Just take a look at the whole Russian meetings debacle as a prime example of how the WH misdirects and deflects the truth.

Isn't 23:06 GMT an odd time to sell? If I was selling a big stack of silver I'd be waiting for the most liquid hours when all the big markets were open and I'd be able to unload all or most of it before the price fell? Why sell when most of your buyers are asleep?

 Should you sell all of your gold and silver to go “All-In” on Bitcoin and Ethereum?
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Has someone rewritten the legal tender laws? They tried this sort of thing many years ago with the $25 dollar silver Ron Paul coin. It didn't go well. A lot of silver, coins and certificates were seized. That was at least real silver. Now we have Crypto currencies which can apparently supplant the US dollar (and others), in apparently unlimited supply. At least until quantum entanglement cracks the blockchain. This is just one of the many signs of the collective madness of our debt saturated society. China , besides accumulating vast areas of the Pacific Ocean with hardly a whimper from the international community, or from the Russian mole hunters, is also accumulating large amounts of gold. The other nations of the world are accumulating debt, hoping perhaps that it will go up in value with time. Meanwhile the futures markets for precious metals go up and down like a yoyo (if anyone remembers them) almost daily, allowing the day speculators to make fortunes while the steady investors pay the price. These are all signs of the reckoning to come.
