Preventing Taxpaying Milk Cows from Seeking Greener Pastures
The US government continues to tighten the noose on US taxpayers.
Silver demand hit record levels in 2013 as the prices dropped. The trend continues in 2014.
Silver demand at the US Mint is on pace to pass last year's record year (e.g. the US mint sold 715K Silver Eagles yesterday alone) and silver demand for use in solar and electronics remains strong.
Silver supply, however, at low prices may become further depressed as at least one silver miner, Mexico's First Majestic has withheld production.
Here is an extensive report on silver supply and demand:

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -
For thousands of couples in Idaho, saying “I do” was made much easier now that same-sex marriage is legal in the Gem State, but not everyone is supporting these couples' rights.
One place in particular is the Hitching Post, which is taking its battle – and the City of Coeur d'Alene – to court.
Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed into law a bill that reinforces laws against the direct-sales model that Tesla Motors employs, effectively barring the automaker from selling its wares in the state.
According to the letter sent to legislators from Snyder's office announcing the signing of Public Act 354:
This bill does not, as some have claimed, prevent auto manufacturers from selling automobiles directly to consumers at realign in Michigan. That is because this is already prohibited under Michigan law. The current law states that a manufacturer shall not "[s]ell new motor vehicle directly to a retail customer other than through its franchised dealers…"
The current language states plainly that a manufacturer can only sell new vehicles to consumers through its own network of franchised dealers. House Bill 5606 detest the word "its" from this sentence. This change would appear merely to allow manufacturers who do not have their own franchised dealers to sell through another manufactuerer's [sic] network of franchised dealers. But in any event they will be required, just as they are now, to sell through a franchised dealer, and not directly to consumers. House Bill 5606 does nothing to change this fact. At most, it clarifies the existing requirement in Michigan law.
History will define the Obama administration as the Bald administration because it has no hair.

NOT ME IN THE VIDEO!!!!!!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CdPJyBUFN0 On Friday Oct. 17th I saw what appeared to be a police swat team raid in Tracy, Ca. I just so happened to live behind the house that was being raided when I was a kid 15 years ago. Our landlord from when we lived there owned and lived in the house that was being raided.I dont know if he still does or not, but he was a friend of my Aunts. So I had a particular interest to film what was going on.
