Silver is the best investment in the world
(Editor's Note: Here is an enlightening rant from a web site called economicrant.com. Mr. Mason's message is "terse but true", and is more than worthy of your consideration. - JSB)
One cannot pick tops and bottoms and short term forecasting is for fools. Nevertheless, one has to do their best to see overall bottoms and tops. We feel silver has bottomed at the $16 level and it's time to back up the truck. It just does not matter if you buy silver at $14, $16, or even $18 when it goes to $200 and keeps going. Silver is the best investment in the world. Buy bullion and store it yourself. Do NOT buy paper silver of any kind, or let anyone store it for you. Why aren't we recommending silver stocks anymore? They are a fantastic bargain, and the HUI is currently only about 400.
1) In a Marxist society like ours paper assets are more and more risky, especially for taxation.
2) The stock market is going to fall, and silver and gold stocks may well fall with it.
Buy silver bullion
George Soros is a Zionist One Worlder, but he is not senile like Warren Buffett. George told the world gold was a huge bubble to keep others from buying any. Meanwhile he bought up $600 million dollars worth. Why didn't George buy silver? Lots of reasons. There isn't that much silver available for sale. Any large sales would make the price rise dramatically. Silver is a very tiny market folks, and this is one reason it is going to go ballistic. Where are you going to safely store hundreds of tons of silver? He can store that gold in small tool shed, but it would be next to impossible to store hundreds of tons of silver. BACK UP THE TRUCK AND BUY SILVER. This is it; no more waiting. Buy all you can. If the price falls a little so what? This is the time.
We are holding our silver stocks. When the stock market starts to collapse it may be a very good idea to dump all your silver stocks. They may well crash with the market as people scramble to liquidate and get cash (Monopoly money). If you want to hold stocks you can buy them back at a lower level. If the HUI falls below, say, 380 just dump them.
We are going to attack Iran. This will be the worst mistake we have ever made. The Mideast is none of our business. The business of America is protecting America, not any other country. General Makarov is the head of the Russian chief of staff. He said the U.S. is going to attack Iran, and referred to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Admiral McMullens statements. Makarov did not say what the Russian response would be to this attack. Both Russia and China has extensive investments in Iran and are not going to tolerate any U.S. interference. On 14 February 2010 Admiral Michael Mullen attended a press conference after his arrival in Israel and made it clear that all options are on the table. "We would operate all our forces for Israel". He then said,"Politically, it is prohibited in any way that Iran will have nuclear weapons". Right now, diplomatic efforts continue," he explained, but did not rule out military option, "The option to attack Iran is still on the table, but we're not there yet. It is very difficult to expect the pace of the Iranian government, I am very concerned with their use of rhetoric and their uranium enrichment program. Iran undermines the stability of the region – also in Yemen and Afghanistan. The U.S. government has very serious intentions to impose harsh sanctions and I very much hope that it will end the conflict." McMullen also noted that according to the American assessment Iran could obtain a nuclear bomb from one year to three years. That is an outright lie. However, he stressed that, "conflict with Iran would be a big problem for everyone. I worry about the unintended consequences of an attack. While every situation has limits, we're not there yet. The diplomatic efforts must be exhausted until the end." He continually referred to Israel's security and made it clear that the U.S. stands behind it. "Israel supports the policy that Obama leads. The Chief of the General Staff Gabi Ashkenazi made this clear to me in a meeting a few weeks ago. That does not mean we are not worried. " We have appreciation for Israel and we can take care of its security." Additionally Admiral McMullen stressed that between Israel and the U.S. there is real cooperation. "This important relationship with Israel grows stronger every day," he said. "We are close partners, since the establishment of the state. I am aware of the needs of Israel in every step. I'm here to understand the perspective of those who live here. I worry about the stability and the possibility for instability in the region. We will operate all our forces to have a stable and secure Israel and for the people of Israel." One would think McMullen was an Israeli admiral instead of an American one.
Syrian tanks are already in Lebanon to protect them from an Israeli invasion. This is none of our business. The Mideast is none of our business. Israel is none of our business. The business of America is Americans. This country was founded on the principle of laize faire or mind your own business, not the business of others. We have no business in the Mideast. We have no business protecting any other country on earth. We have no business sending American soldiers to find someone else's war.
