Read the Friday Afternoon Wrap-Up for 1/18/2013 and the Monday Morning Commentary for 1/21/2013

As long-time readers know well, my ALL-TIME FAVORITE movie is Star Wars – or should I say, the entire six-movie saga.  Each film is AMAZING in its own distinct way; but for the record, my two favorites are Episode VI – Return of the Jedi (which I watched on its OPENING DAY in 1983; and Episode III: Revenge of the Sith – which brilliantly coalesced all aspects of the 30-year epic.

To me, the most incredible aspect of George Lucas’ genius is that the same actor that played an older Emperor Palpatine in 1983 (Ian McDermid) played the younger Palpatine in 2005 as well.  Even Spielberg and Stone don’t have such foresight; and in my mind, the $4 billion Disney just spent for Lucasfilm may be the DEAL OF THE CENTURY.

Not only are the final three movies planned for release in 2015, 2017, and 2019 – which will shatter all box office records; but syndication and merchandising alone will likely recoup the cost – particularly as it is being paid in 2013 dollars.  Not to mention royalties from my favorite show on television; the Lucas-produced Star Wars: Clone Wars.  Regarding the latter; I kid you not, each 30-minute episode has the intensity and production value of an entire Star Wars movie.

Anyhow, the reason I wrote this RANT – and why Star Wars is so universally popular – is because no cultural phenomenon better depicts the ongoing battle between GOOD and EVIL; or as Lucas presents it, the “Force” versus the “Dark Side.”

Each day for the past eleven years, I have fought my own version of the “GOLD WARS”; as EVIL bankers and politicians seek to DESTROY the finances – and lives – of countless billions, simply to maintain WEALTH and POWER.  The weapons at their disposal are indeed powerful; and thus, attempting to fight them directly is SUICIDAL…

Death Star is clear to fire

Fortunately, our “pathetic band of rebels” understands the EMPIRE’S ACHILLES HEEL; i.e., inexorable PHYSICAL PM demand, and dwindling PHYSICAL supply.  This is why – no matter how hard they attack “PAPER PM Investments” – they FAIL to suppress PHYSICAL prices…

…and why each time the “odds” appear insurmountable, we WIN the major battles – en route to eventual ANNIHILATION of the “Dark Side”…

Destruction of Death Star One (HQ)

So stay strong, and BE SMART – as only the Cartel’s ACHILLES HEEL can be exploited to DESTROY the EVIL that seeks to rob you of your life’s savings…

Star Wars: Return of the Jedi – the complete space battle.

Knowing this, you have but alternative; to…
