Snowden Speaks Out Against Obama

The age old question: liberty or security. Tyrants promise security if we will only give up liberty.
Protecting political free speech was what drove the first amendment. Free speech is very broad in that amendment because the framers didn't want it nitpicked to death. Same could be said about gun rights in the 2nd. Still the lawyers and lawmakers want to split hairs to try to remove these protections a sliver at a time. I as a blogger am not a journalist, therefore not really part of the "free Press" therefore they can remove my rights yada yada yada... And since I am crazy enough to oppose the Big Eared one, I shouldn't be allowed to carry or own a weapon... The blanket rights declared in the Bill of Rights is reduced one sliver at a time in the name of what ever great cause - usually for security or for the children...
Gold and silver are mined based on price. As the price goes up, certain mines become economical to work. As the price goes down, production is idled. So as the price goes up, the supply also increases with a certain lag as facilities are again brought on line, or new areas become feasible to mine. The demand is based on herd mentality, so very difficult to predict. According to this author, sales are way up, but pricing is low. Sounds like he is pimping the product. It would be much better if he would have explained why the price is down, and that it might be a good investment opportunity. I suspect that people are dumping gold to invest in stocks, and with the price going down, the herd mentality jumps in for a rapid movement to stock....

The U.S. Housing Bubble Is Back

I wonder about the integrity of the data used in this research. You have the phenomena of a very divided country now with high unemployment in some areas and low in other areas. Those areas with low unemployment are very effected by government spending (D.C. Area) and high government wages. Here housing sales are beginning to move again. High unemployment areas they are not which says zero input from those areas and all the sales happening in the first areas. So of course housing sale prices, coming from "rich" areas will be higher. Until we break through the 14+% unemployment and get American working again, you are going to have very biased numbers.

We need to explain to the public that the plan is to pay for all of our debts by inflation. When you understand that, you can plan for a secure future based on controlled/runaway inflation. The current quasi controlled inflation is lied about by the reporting functions of the government and ignored by the Obama enabling press. When it gets out of control, the liberals will simply say "Oh my, I didn't see that coming. Well it is a shame to let a crisis go to waste, lets protect everyone's investments by concerting them into Government bonds" as we lose another larger chuck of our liberty...
You don't understand. Obama threw a hissy-fit over not getting his way and he is not going to stop his childish temper tantrum until he does.

I think the social debate is important, but I also don't think it belongs in government. Let you and me debate it and make our choices without big brother threatening one or both of us. I am conservative in my social values. But I say no to government involvement in my values. Social Conservatives need to stop saying "there ought to be a law". There is a law, a higher law. Stop trying to get Caesar to crucify your opponents.
and demanding more.
We are currently seeing a major push by the White House to get the sequester annulled. It seems that every federal agency is stepping forward and giving dire threats to harm any and all programs the people may like if they don't get their way. It you think about it, it is like a young child throwing a hissy-fit in the grocery store if we won't buy him the candy he wants. No discussion about the fact that the Feds are getting 12 billion more than they did last year, no discussion about reducing inefficiency or eliminating fraud or redundant programs. Just a temper tantrum because they don't have enough money for what they want. We just gave them an enormous tax increase and raised the debt limit, but no, the children are throwing a fit and d
And if we could get more people trained in good marksmanship, we could reduce the need to pay for court costs and room and board. A criminal willing to go after a civilian with deadly force, needs to be removed from society permanently. Aiming to wound is very dangerous to you and to society as a whole and causes more trouble than it is worth.
