Gold as insurance in the Vietnam War

Let me tell you a personal story about gold, passed on to me by my mother. The Indochinese Peninsula in the 1960s was like the Middle East of today; unstable politically, with wars cropping up here and there, and the economy looking in bad shape with disruptions to industry and infrastructure. Then came the Vietnam War. The South Vietnamese in Saigon sold many of their personal belongings (including their homes in many cases) for gold, and hid as much gold as they could on their persons.

So when time came for the South Vietnamese to leave Saigon (both during and after the war), they left on ricketty boats or great big freight ships in illegal human trafficking operations. Passage was paid with a portion of their gold, and thus the journey was made. Some never made it out; pirates sought them for flesh or for riches; some were claimed by the South China Sea; and some were caught by extra-national authorities, who stripped them of their belongings and extradicted them to South Vietnam. But the ones who made it out could resell their gold in exchange for basic necessities, and from there could start anew.

My aunty made it out to British Hong Kong with a sizeable portion of gold. My mum and my grandpa were caught and extradicted with their portion of gold confiscated, but my aunty, now successfully established with the gold that she brought to HK, applied for passage on their behalf.

Angry McCain Admits Meeting With ISIS

"In a weak effort to smear Rand Paul, war hawk Senator John McCain attempted to argue that the Kentucky Senator doesn’t have the authority to disagree with US policies regarding ISIS because he hasn’t met up with members of the terror group, unlike McCain himself."

They are Running out of Silver

At the silver store in downtown I had a fun chat with the dealers today. I've been buying from these guys for at least a couple of years now and they try to avoid sounding too much like their customers as far as speculation goes so I respect what they do have to say.

FBI Director James Comey 'Very Concerned' About New Apple, Google Privacy Features

WASHINGTON -- FBI Director James Comey said Thursday that he was "very concerned" about new steps Silicon Valley tech giants were taking to strengthen privacy protections on mobile devices.
"I am a huge believer in the rule of law, but I am also a believer that no one in this country is beyond the law," Comey told reporters at FBI headquarters in Washington. "What concerns me about this is companies marketing something expressly to allow people to place themselves above the law."

What do you do to experience life... all the way?

What do you do to experience life... all the way?

The end days of summer in Toronto Canada.
Today I went to the beach had a campfire...
Hot a bit humid - had a coldish shower by the beach before heading to the water.

Once in the water I felt as always a sense of being one with the entire Universe.
Picked up some stones...
and there she was a wasp.

I remembered my talk with my mom who was bitten by a wasp a few days ago...her suffering...

Here was this wasp floating 50 meters from the shore.
Little chance for her to survive.
Every wave less chance to live...
