7 Black Swans flying?
If Russia is indeed selling oil for gold, and Shanghai is indeed stockpiling physical, those are a pair of interesting birds flying together.

I would like to see what "the woman" has to say. Did this cop really buy her groceries? The whole story sounds made up or at least staged to make "goons" look better...

Beware the cult of "government"...

Exactly

"...whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it..."

And how does a people alter or abolish their government?

...by constitution.

This isn't difficult. The solution is logical, and with precedence.

Divest the government of their destructive power by amending/altering the constitutions.

When you are free to do so. No need to go into any great detail, but was wondering if you had an idea what to do esp. nutritionally?

Thanks again Paul!

Where did you purchase your silver?

I am looking for a cheap value oriented place myself.

The "research" is ongoing!

The Mint is on their fifth year trying to figure out how to save a few million dollars on producing cheaper coins when the deficit is in the trillions!
They haven't been able to figure out now to make pennies any cheaper
But so far there are no concrete recommendations to do anything except research further!

What happened with the Penny?

What happened with the Penny? I remember people on here were touting that the U.S. Mint was supposed to remove the penny from circulation in 2013. That never happened.

Cause and effect?

This is the typical story of a small town trying to beautify itself through taxes, fees, and fines, resulting in a very attractive...prison. Could it be that the aggressive search for city revenue had something to do with the old woman's inability to afford eggs?

Yep one year 1943 US Pennies were steel

BUT the dimes quarters and half dollars were still 90% silver and the nickels from 1942-45 were 35% silver too (with no nickel in them)

Steel is the metal of choice for third world country coinage

One government parasite

All I see is one government parasite attacking another government parasite -- don't forget to send money. Oh, nevermind sending money, the lobbyists in Washington has got their backs (bought and paid for). The US Supreme Court made bribery legal in their ruling on campaign finances/laws.

So, is it quite possible now

So, is it quite possible now that this law could singlehandedly bankrupt the state if they bust enough people?

This is an interesting thought, how many people are actually willing to pay to put all these "bad" people away?

Where is it?

I had an opportunity to do a 10 day silent retreat about 11 years ago, and I didn't do it because of work, and as I made that decision, I knew I would regret it, and I have regretted it.

I have also made a commitment to start a meditation practice in the new year. Insight Meditation in Seattle is starting an introduction to meditation on January 12:

https://seattleinsight.org/Calendar/tabid/60/PageId/EventDet...

It is a 6 week course.

Back in 2003 I was a little more impulsive than now. I'm not ready to commit to a 10 day retreat, either, but I'll keep it in mind. Thank you.

And the https://www.dhamma.org/ site hasn't changed in 11 years!

We had steel during the war

We had steel during the war from all the copper use, so its not unheard of.
Heck, they might as well just use plain lead for how much this stuff is going to be worth.

With your apparent lack of concern for the value of a human life, I hope you get your wish someday.

Gold & Silver lower

Its certainly possible that gold can go lower if it is leased or sold in massive amounts because the physical demand for gold can be put off as its is not essential in industry

Silver on the other hand has a built in demand of about 600-700 million ounces for industry. Total mining production is about the same-the remaining 200 or so million ounces come from secondary supply.
A drop in the silver price to $7-9 is unlikely as a shortage would quickly develop as silver mines would shut down

Thank you very much Paulette!

Thank you very much Paulette! Your message gives us Hope. My niece Tara posted this message on http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/chloerombach.

Dear friends and family of the Rombachs,

Please join us in a candlelight vigil for Chloe Rombach any or each evening beginning on Sunday, Dec 21st Winter’s Solstice (the longest night of the year and the turning point for more light in our days) through Thursday, Dec 25th, Christmas Day. Get together with other family members, friends, and neighbors in your front yard, on the steps of your church or at another special location, to sing Silent Night and pray with candles ablaze. We suggest vigils start around sunset (or an evening time that is convenient) and go for as long as feels right. It would also be wonderful if you could take pictures of your gathering(s) to post on the Caring Bridge website (you can do this by adding a picture to your profile on the website). Spread the word too so that we can bring many lights into the darkness and help Chloe find her way home to Ed, Jeannie and AJ.

Peace, Love, Strength & Healing!

Ed Rombach

perhaps Miracle #2

will be when the hate turns to love. I will pray for that for your dad, (and many others to follow suit)!!

Putin Crushes BBC Smartass

"Now, US bases are scattered around the globe – and you’re telling me Russia is behaving aggressively? Do you have any common sense at all? What are US armed forces doing in Europe, also with tactical nuclear weapons? What are they doing there?

Listen, Russia has increased its military spending for 2015, if I am not mistaken, it is around 50 billion in dollar equivalent. The Pentagon’s budget is ten times that amount, $575 billion, I think, recently approved by the Congress. And you’re telling me we are pursuing an aggressive policy? Is there any common sense in this?"

GREAT POST. I'm going to read it.

Here is another book on the subject of welfare (specifically foreign aid).

"The Tyranny of Experts" by William Easterly

I saw this guy on C-SPAN recently and he slammed U.S. foreign aid which is something I always like to hear.

More on this book here...

1200 journalists..

over 1200 international/regional journalists in the room, addressing questions like this: (from Western press)

JOHN SIMPSON, BBC: Western countries almost universally now believe that there’s a new Cold War and that you, frankly, have decided to create that. We see, almost daily, Russian aircraft taking sometimes quite dangerous manoeuvres towards western airspace. That must be done on your orders; you’re the Commander-in-Chief. It must have been your orders that sent Russian troops into the territory of a sovereign country – Crimea first, and then whatever it is that’s going on in Eastern Ukraine. Now you’ve got a big problem with the currency of Russia, and you’re going to need help and support and understanding from outside countries, particularly from the West. So can I say to you, can I ask you now, would you care to take this opportunity to say to people from the West that you have no desire to carry on with the new Cold War, and that you will do whatever you can to sort out the problems in Ukraine? Thank you!

ALEXEI ANISHCHYUK, REUTERS NEWS AGENCY: Good afternoon, Mr Putin. In the last year Russia has been engulfed in what could be called one of the gravest crises in its contemporary history. It all started at the end of 2013 with the developments in Ukraine, followed by a deterioration in relations with the West, reminiscent of the “cold war”, and in recent days we have been witnessing an acute currency exchange crisis, which could grow into a financial and economic crisis. The risks are there. I know all too well that you often tend to blame some external forces for everything. I also know that some in the Russian elite, from your inner circle, who are the most well-informed people in Russia, despite all their public statements, tend to lay the blame for some things on you as the person who has been in charge of taking all the key decision in Russia for the last 15 years…
VLADIMIR PUTIN: What are the names?
ALEXEI ANISHCHYUK: Unfortunately, I can’t tell you. They usually talk on condition of anonymity. But lately such statements could be heard in their conversations with reporters.

My question in this respect is the following: To what extent are you confident that your inner circle unconditionally supports you? Do you see any risk of a government coup or even a palace coup? You have stated on a number of occasions what you would do in case of an “orange revolution” or, God forbid, a “red revolution.” But do you have a plan in the event of treachery in your inner circle or a palace coup?
Thank you.
------------------
and the Ukrainian press...

ROMAN TSYMBALYUK, UKRAINIAN NEWS AGENCY UNIAN: I have two short questions, if I may.

VLADIMIR PUTIN: Go ahead, please.

ROMAN TSYMBALYUK: My first question concerns the punitive operation you have launched in eastern Ukraine, which is mostly spearheaded against Russian speakers. It’s an open secret that it is Russian servicemen and Russian militants who are fighting there. Question: How many Russian servicemen and units of equipment have you sent there, and how many of them have been killed in Ukraine? What would you as the Commander-in-Chief say to the families of the Russian servicemen and officers killed there?

And my second short question, if I may. We had a president called Viktor, who is now hiding in Russia. He had imprisoned the number one on the Batkivshchyna list, Yulia Tymoshenko. She has been released, but now the current number one on the party list is in prison, this time in Russia…

VLADIMIR PUTIN: What? Say it again please?

ROMAN TSYMBALYUK: The number one on the list of Yulia Tymoshenko’s party, Batkivshchyna, is currently in a Russian prison. I have a question: On what conditions will you release Ukrainian pilot Savchenko, Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov and at least 30 Ukrainian prisoners of war whom you are keeping in various prisons in Russia? Thank you.
