Well, here's some encouragement!
April of 2013, I thought silver price had reached its lowest point. Mr. Nystrom predicted last April that the price would drop to $18 within the next year. It has bounced around close to that, but finally broke below $18 today. On April 15, 2013, here is what I posted in response to his prediction:
I say we will see $30 silver before we see $18 silver. In my opinion, today is the capitulation everyone was anticipating. If so, the bottom will be at or near what we are seeing today. So, what do you say...If silver reaches $30 you can send me one ASE. If silver reaches $18, I'll send you 30 FRNs.
Obviously, I have been very wrong. Even though Mr. Nystrom didn't take me up on my wager, I am sending today a $30 donation to the Daily Paul.
Teachers Still Enthrall Them
Teachers still enthrall them with the story,
Of Ulysses and his glory,
How he saw the world, conquered every foe,
And set a Goddess' heart aglow,
How he tricked the Trojans with a wooden horse,
Returned to Penelope, of course,
All like some wonderful, exciting game,
Living happily ever after with fortune and fame.
The Iliad is usually omitted,
Especially the atrocities committed,
Of Priam weeping bitterly for his son,
Of Hector's body defiled,
Of multitudes beguiled,
Of the annihilation of an entire city,
Of so many slaughtered without pity.
I've read the posts here about being exhausted and not having the will to fight any longer. I too am tired. Very very tired. I've served with the Army Rangers, and I've fought both my battles and my personal demons. I've lost friends, and loved ones. I've won some battles, and lost many more. And come to realize that sometimes even when you "win" you lose, and that you can be "dead" right.
Incredible, but not surprising in the least. I agree with the commentary on the video. Scotland had no chance of breaking free, and people in "democratic" countries only have the illusion of choice.
Alleged ISIS Photo Controversy Engulfs Sen. John McCain
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) and his aides swear the Syrian "rebels" he was pictured last year with weren’t ISIS members or supporters, and the mainstream media is by and large buying the 2008 GOP presidential nominee’s story.
But a closer look at the situation tells perhaps a different story than McCain’s office or the mainstream media have pushed.

"Believe it or not, the federal government sends free pre-rolled cannabis cigarettes to a special, but dwindling group of patients on a regular basis beginning in 1976 with Robert Randall. It all started when Robert was arrested for growing cannabis on his back deck and had to prove that this medicine was essential in to prevent his progressive loss of vision from glaucoma."
Key phrase here: "PREVENT his loss of vision."
"A variety of options are available to treat glaucoma. These include eye drops, laser procedures, and surgery. All are intended to decrease eye pressure and, thereby, protect the optic nerve."
Key phrase here: "DECREASE eye pressure..."
which DOES NOT PROTECT THE OPTIC NERVE. It merely SLOWS the progressive loss of vision. It provides an awesome income stream for the drug company and the eye doctor, as visual field testing will be performed several times a year at about $100 per test - to map the gradual loss of vision. Meanwhile, the patient will buy those drops until they die.
I devoted a career to ophthalmology, and watched helplessly as doctor after doctor prescribed drops and did surgery and patients continued to lose vision. My own father had lost a considerable portion of his visual field before he died. It is beyond frustrating to know there is a way to save the sight of these people, and the government knows it, and every ophthalmologist I worked for knows it...
Very interesting article from ZH:
Submitted by Brandon Smith via Alt-Market blog,
I wanted to thank everyone who downloaded and shared 28 pages the #FREE excerpt from the first book in the SECURITY THROUGH ABSURDITY series, Little Yellow Stickies.
About 2,000 people on Sept 11, of this year, read my account of how 9/11 went down inside the defense contractor's office I used to work at.
It is currently not free, but it will be again very, very soon. (like hopefully tomorrow.) I intend for it to stay free. Always.
I will be reading this exact thing at Brown University Bookstore, on September 30th. http://www.brown.edu/campus-life/support/bookstore/events
Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky called the plan “ludicrous” on the Senate floor before the vote.
“No one knows where these arms are going to wind up … We don’t even know who these groups are.”
Paul — known for his non-interventionist approach — said “we need to stay the heck out of their civil war … It is their war and they need to fight it.”
