 The Flat Earth Society Responded To A Tweet By Elon Musk: ‘Thanks For The Question’
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
Thanks for letting me state my opinion! Your comment is insulting. Try as I might I am yet to find any scientific evidence of AGW or the existence of a God, Heaven or Hell. As is said "ignorance is bliss" Now I am going out to do some Happy Clapping.

You are entitled to put opinions into whatever category you like . . Whether it holds any credence is for others to be convinced not you! Personally I see the comment as ignorant as that of the flat earth believers . . to compare this to religious belief is hardly an argument merely that ignorant people always abound!

Shallow it may be, but it's frickin' hilarious to laugh at all the hypocritical jerks who gave Trump ("I'm no angel") endless grief for his "when you're a celebrity you can grab them by the p*ssy" line now tell us to overlook this creep ("I'm sanctimonious because I'm on the Left") because he was just joking around. ;)

Seems rather shallow to fault Franken for a tasteless comedic prank after electing the "grab them by the p*ssy" adulterer to the presidency.

 Spanking the Monkey
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
They wonder why Russia Today has such a big following. Real news is much more interesting than the MSM circus. Especially when you question more.

 Brexit, Gold and Harold Wilson's 'Pound in Your Pocket', 50 Years On
 - Adrian Ash - Bullion Vault
Good points, however Brexit is not entirely about the value of the pound or the cost of living. Many of those who voted in favour of leaving the UK have mentioned that they are prepared to absorb financial pain in order to preserve their sovereignty.

 Whipping-Post Politics
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
I couldn't agree more, Keillor's dismissal was a bridge too far, but it is reflective of the fear, by Boards of Directors across the US, guiding these decisions as they are advised and directed by the lawyers they hired to tell them (we had to fire him the lawyers said so) what to do. I really would like to know more, the burying of the body of work, any and all ties, reminds one of a traitorous spy's execution and erasure, removed from the annals of history, cursed by gods and devils alike, akin to the Trials of Socrates, now drink your poison. I love Garrison Keillor, he is one of my few heroes, fearless with his mighty pen so eloquently wielded, that in and of itself perhaps part of his undoing. He was hated by the self righteous as much as he was loved by his open minded followers/listeners. I was naive of this fact until eating breakfast (BnB Inn) with other guests, 2 couples from Minnesota, 1 couple loved him, the other couple reviled him (guess who we talked with over pastry). My mother raised me on public radio and Garrison Keillor, we raised our children likewise, and we took them to see him live, twice, he is, I agree, our modern Mark Twain. Watch your top knot JHK they will come for all the intellectuals at some point. I'm a big fan of all your work, keep it coming, "damn the torpedoes" Living in my hand made world. Thank you, Norbert Garvey

Mathematically, doubling down is an amazingly powerful strategy...until it isn't. http://professorconfess.blogspot.com/2017/11/doubling-down-fiat-currency-and-social.html

 Meet The World’s Most Powerful Bitcoin Backers
 - Oilprice.com - oilprice.com
Why run a business or work for one when you can mine bitcoins for the price of the servers and electricity? The higher the price of bitcoin, the more profitable it is to mine it. Why buy them from someone else? Why doesn't the Federal Reserve mine or buy bitcoins to pay off their debt. Same for the US Treasury department and the EU. Of course, you might find it difficult to eat if all the farmers are busy mining bitcoins.

 Bitcoin’s Inconvenient Truths: The Silence Is Deafening - Dave Kranzler  (3)
 - Dave Kranzler - Sprott Money
Dave I agree with your analysis but there are a maybe a couple of outstanding differences. First, the BTC community may reject the derivative rig causing massive losses to the establishment (it is plausible the massive run up in price has been caused by JPM/GS etc buying in advance of the derivative contract commencing). The BTC community may turn around and say "BTC is dead, its now Potcoin" or something similar. Which clearly is a plank in your store of value argument. The other point being the Au/Ag derivative rig works because the main players control the bullion market which is not the case for BTC. No one controls/owns that market so how could a derivative be used as WMD in this case?

 Peter Schiff Warns Of CRASH: ‘Everybody Is Going To Get Wiped Out!’
 - Mac Slavo - ShtfPlan
"Schiff also said no one knows when this is going to happen for sure, only that it will happen." Peter has been warning of the next crash for years. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. So it may come...someday. He seems to forget that the central banks and the "too-big-to-fail" banks are in control. They will keep the ponzi scheme going until the Dow reaches a million unless the public loses confidence in their currencies or run out of borrowed money.

 Why It's Important to Define Money Correctly
 - Frank Shostak - 
A quote: "Money is gold, and nothing else" - J. P. Morgan, 1912. There is an important definition within that statement. Nowadays, many repeat it wrongly, putting the cart before the horse, so to speak, as: 'gold is money'. With this interpretation, so too could Euros, Dollars and all other fiat currencies be classed as 'money', as in 'Euros are money' etc. So, anything else, other than money, (as defined by Mr. Morgan) must be a currency, its value defined only by the circumstances of its time and place in the world - a temporal thing. Gold - eternal. QED

 What Now?  (5)
 - James Howard Kunstler - 
Kunstler has a talent for summarizing complex situations in a pithy and entertaining way. The Middle East is being reduced to a drawn out proxy war between US and Russia with China waiting in the wings to scoop up the profits.
