Game Changer...

The Teachers Retirement System of Texas will be able to invest in physical gold? As of Aug 2012, the TRS of Texas had $109,993,231 in investments.

How about Hold? Protecting your retirement fund from confiscation.. that's hoarding.


Interesting development. I like JR and LL.

Great video. Thanks.

My long term prediction is that Texas will ultimately secede. Somewhere down the line, maybe in 10 or 15 years.
