Save America

Author:
Don Stott
Publish Date:
10/26/2020

Do we need ‘saving?’  I think so.  Our national debt, as I write this on Sunday, 10/25, is $127 trillion, $132 billion and change.  Soon, the debt will equal the GDP, and then we could be economic...

That’s a direct quote from a friend of mine, after she bought a “Big Mac” from McDonalds last week.  I have no idea how much a Big Mac costs, either then or now, but I do remember being able to buy a gallon...

Overseas? South America?

Publish Date:

I have friends and customers with whom I often share opinions and advice.  The advice is rarely taken, and my opinion on anything is often radical, so that’s life.  However, I have a customer who I greatly admire,...

From page two of Saturday’s Wall Street Journal, a bold headline reads, “Metals Scam Said to Prey on Conservatives.”  The first paragraph reads, “Two Los Angeles men and their companies duped...

The Drug War

Publish Date:

I’ve never done drugs of any kind.  Never smoked, or taken any drug, other than an occasional aspirin.  I bring this up because the drug war kills thousands every year, as happened six months ago in Louisville...

Three Biggest Frauds

Publish Date:
09/21/2020

I’m certain there are lots of them, but to me anyway, there have been and still are, three biggest, most outrageous frauds going on in America today, and they are boosted with outright lies, fake science, and other forms of...

Sent to me by a customer.  I could never say it better! I never dreamed that I would have to face the prospect of not living in the United States of America, at least not the one I have known all my life. I have never...

Robin Hood

Since Biden and his gang are running for President, and are touting socialism, whether they admit it or not,  I am going to quote, word for word, chapter 11 from a book I wrote 35 years ago when I got my first...

Storage

Publish Date:

I had an anonymous call last week from a man who asked me if I were a storage facility.  “Huh?  Do you mean, do I store people’s gold and silver?” “Yes.” “No I don’t, nor...

Gradualism

Publish Date:
08/24/2020

We all experience ‘gradualism’ in our lives.  The paint on your house gradually decays.  Tires gradually wear out.  Grass gradually grows till it needs cutting.  Soda pop gradually loses its fizz...

Racism, Economics, Force, Choice

Publish Date:

We constantly view or read, how ‘racism’ is responsible for all the violence, arson, prejudice, and riots occurring currently.  Let’s get the ‘racism’ solved first, OK?  Let’s look at...

Gold Doesn't Pay Any Interest

Author:
Don Stott
Publish Date:
08/10/2020

We hear that constantly, and when I began doing precious metals in November of 1977, I heard it then also.  True, it doesn’t pay any interest.  Neither does silver, nor your home, car, lawn mower, watch,...

Silver Coins

1964 was a long time ago, when the U.S. Mint stopped making 90% silver dimes, quarters, and halves.  In 1964, a silver dime would buy 10 cents worth of something, a silver quarter would buy a quarters’ worth of...

Publish Date:

It was a long time ago, and maybe even before a lot of you readers were born, but I remember it well.  After removing his shoe and pounding it on the table (At the United Nations), the news media quoted him as saying,...

Save

Publish Date:

Over the years, I’ve always suggested saving in tangible silver and gold.  I’ve done it myself, and have never had a savings account or IRA.  Using the ‘technical charts’ on the web site, it is...

Really?

Publish Date:
07/13/2020

Over the years, I have had a few calls such as the one I received Friday, from the son of a deceased customer of mine.  I think he must have been maybe 60.  I didn’t ask, but his Dad had died recently, younger...

Publish Date:

Most have never heard of barter during the Great Depression, but I am certain it did happen many times.  Unemployment was 25%, jobs were virtually impossible to obtain, and hundreds of the unemployed were selling apples on...

Unions

I believe the normal human trend, is to associate with your own race, language, trade, religion, etc. I have a next-door neighbor who is a third my age, rents his house, has a motorcycle, and naturally, since he rents rather than...
