Police State: Australian Government To Force Telcos To Store Metadata Of All Activity For Two Years

In an unbelievable display of arrogance and self-importance, the Australian government recently
announced the most sweeping changes to their national security legislation since 9/11.
The new laws will give the Australian government more powers to monitor all types of communication, both phone and internet.
What’s more, telecom companies will be required to store searchable metadata of all activity for two years, enabling the authorities to access details of every phone call made and every website visited.
Powers for “extended detention” and ‘preventative detention’, (pre-crime) have also been extended.
I’m sure it makes you feel better knowing that you could be preventively detained without actually committing any crime—you know, just in case…
It will also become a crime now to travel to a country where terrorists are ‘conducting hostile activities’ unless you have a ‘legitimate excuse’.

The Golden Age... Of Silver

In a throwback to another era, this excellent BBC documentary reveals The Golden Age of silver- a time when nearly everyone in the world (not just silver stackers) had an insatiable lust for the white metal.

What Is The Paleo (Caveman) Diet?

What Is The Paleo Diet?

The Paleo diet is the healthiest way you can eat because it is the ONLY nutritional approach that works with your genetics to help you stay lean, strong and energetic! Research in biology, biochemistry, Ophthalmology, Dermatology and many other disciplines indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility. – Robb Wolf

Okay To Eat Avoid
Fruits Dairy
Vegetables Grains
Lean Meats Processed Food & Sugars
Seafood Legumes
Nuts & Seeds Starches
Healthy Fats Alcohol

Fractional Reserve Banking Is Not Capitalism

Today, capitalism is blamed for our current disastrous economic and financial situation and a history of
incessant booms and busts. Support for capitalism is eroding worldwide. In a recent global poll, 25 percent (up 2 percent from 2009) of respondents viewed free enterprise as “fatally flawed and needs to be replaced.” The number of Spaniards who hold this view increased from 29 percent in 2009 to 42 percent, the highest amongst those polled. In Indonesia, the percentage went from 17 percent to 32 percent.

Most, if not all, booms and busts originate with excess credit creation from the financial sector. These respondents, incorrectly, assume that this financial system structured on fractional reserve banking is an integral part of capitalism. It isn’t. It is fraud and a violation of property rights, and should be treated as such.

We Will Have The Ron Paul Revolution One Day

Ron Paul
Ron Paul is a guy who talks about things others don’t talk about; who doesn’t back down; who doesn’t suck up to establishment players;  and, to top it off, is almost always right.
The memo has apparently gone out: Don’t mention this guy or his ideas or policy prescriptions.
If someone with real and great influence did offer a public “mea culpa” about Ron Paul and begin to preach from his campaign playbook, Paul’s ideas would suddenly move from the “cult” fringe into the mainstream.
This would qualify as as a terribly “dangerous” development to TPTB and the cronies who game the status quo system,  but potentially life-saving (or nation saving) stuff to the rest of us.
However, Paul’s issues WILL be reconsidered one day soon.  
I predict that one day the nation’s voters WILL clamor for a politician with Ron Paul’s views to become president.
This will most likely occur after the economic system has crashed, after hyper-inflation has ravaged families and businesses, after the paper fiat dollar is rejected.   And, oh yeah, after gold and silver have probably become too expensive for almost anyone to buy.
This “revolution” in outlook will occur when the majority of Americans (and even economists and politicians) come to realize that the things Ron Paul said we’re going to cause a crisis of historic proportions actually did.

Silver Smashed Below US$20!

After consolidating and holding support throughout the overnight Asian and London sessions, gold & silver have once again been treated to a waterfall decline on today’s COMEX open, with silver breaking below substantial support at $20, and gold plunging towards $1280. *Update: While gold has bounced off support at $1280, recovering all of it’s losses at one point, silver has not been allowed to recover from the COMEX open smash, and is again plunging into the access market close with a last of $19.70!
