  • (vanity) Question for precious metal experts: WHY/HOW is silver undervalued?

    self | 5/26/23 | NewJerseyJoe
    Time to once again consult the great hive mind that is my fellow FReepers... I am a relatively new (about 6 months) silver stacker (and gold, when I can afford it). One thing I've been hearing for a long time is "Silver is undervalued."I know silver is used for a zillion industrial uses -- solar, electronics, medical, etc. I know there is a huge deficit between "paper" silver and actual physical silver to back that paper. I know demand has been through the roof for many months -- not just in the U.S. but around the world -- and not...

    Unconstrained Analytics ^ | Sep 8, 2020 | Steve Coughlin
    This book by Unconstrained Analytics is a guide for all citizens that are concerned with the chaos and violence occurring on the streets of America, regardless of political outlook. Though much of the violence clearly has political intent and purpose, that is outside the scope of this study. The goal – to explain the violence, who is perpetrating it, and how to avoid becoming a victim, sounds simple enough. However, this is a very dynamic situation, the amount of information available is immense, and much of it is opinion disguised as the truth. To help with this task, the writers...

  • Taking Back Our Country, One Word at a Time: Do not let the cultural enslavers control the meaning of our words

    American Thinker ^ | 03/13/2023 | Deborah C. Tyler
    Let us resolve to reclaim our own words. The cloud of defeat enshrouding America is a spiritual, moral, and political conquest that seeks to control minds, debilitate character, and destroy institutions from within. That conquest starts with the power to control our words. We react, we write, we rail against them — but always using their words. They control the conversation. We have let the enslavers control our words. The disruptive force throughout American history has been Christianity. It disrupted slavery, segregation, and abortion because Christians rejected words of the oppressors. They called slaves their brothers; they call the pre-born...

    Naturally, dogs are protective of things they consider theirs such as their food, toys, and shelter. Once they get adopted by a human they consider them family and become protective of them and their children. That's where the saying "dogs are family" comes in, and the three videos in this article just prove that.

Polk, Andrew Johnson, and Donald Trump.
