    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/10/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    www.FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Dr. Marc Faber (Gloom Boom and Doom Report) thinks real estate in extremely depressed markets may be a good buy. He may be right, but he could also be wrong, and the markets could decline further. Yes markets in Florida, Phoenix and Vegas have declined by as much as 75% since the economic collapse began in 2007. However, that doesn’t mean these markets can’t decline even further. If you see a house in a boarded up subdivision, and it’s selling for next to nothing, that doesn’t make it a good buy. We propose several means of valuing a...

Then we got down to the end of theGreat Indian Gold Strike of 2012.

The strike lasted three weeks, during which time gold sellers were heard to proclaim, "No Gold for...

    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Chris Duane has just finished a new video about silver confiscation and why it's not going to happen. Many people are concerned about the ever-expanding government. We fear that eventually our silver will be confiscated, just like gold was in the 1930's. This is a highly unlikely occurrence, as there are too many large, attractive confiscation candidates, such as: COMEX, GLD, SLV and the other major dealers. Going house-to-house to seize physical holdings of precious metals is just not practical and could lead to violent backlashes. Chris and I also discussed why Homeland Security needs 450 million rounds...

With that corruption comes the continuing erosion of individual rights and the escalating movement towards totalitarianism. Here's another example of what we are facing as a nation. A bill, which was passed by overwhelmingly majority in the US Senate, provides for revocation of a citizen's passport in the event of the delinquency of $50,000 or more on federal income taxes. Fortunately, passage in the House is questionable for now, but your government is clearly capable of anything. We see the same types of outrageous...

    The Financial Survival Network ^ | 04/06/2012 | Kerry Lutz
    FinancialSurvivalNetwork.com presents: Ellen Brown has been studying the government debt problem for years and believes she has a solution. Rather than governments borrowing money from banks and outsiders, they should be borrowing directly from central banks. Thus any interest owed would be paid back to the government, eliminating a large portion of the resulting debt burden. Combine this with borrowing only for projects that will generate sufficient revenues to self-liquidate the loans and you have a prescription for responsible government finance. Canada did this successfully until the 1970's, when the Bank for International Settlements stepped in and helped end the...

Detectives and SWAT team officers from the Metro Nashville Police Department arrested Euceda in December after allegedly raping an 11-year-old girl and robbing her family. He was caught just before boarding a bus to Mexico. The grand jury indictments handed down last week charge Euceda with 41 separate counts, outlining to some extent the crimes with which he and his alleged accomplice, Rony Sorta, are...

Would we not want healthy babies?” Nebraska had provided prenatal care through Medicaid until 2010 when federal officials objected. Approximately...

    "Ranting" Andy Hoffman is back for another Monday Rant. We talked about noted gold investor Jim Sinclair and his decision to flee the US before it's too late. While Americans have a number of options regarding where to flee, before the ultimate collapse of the greenback, there really are very few choices. There's so much anti-American sentiment around the globe, one can only wonder how much worse it can/will get if a systemic collapse that leads to mass global disorder occurs. While it will be easy to blame the US for causing it, it will greatly limit your choices on...

    Mickey Fulp, the one and only Mercenary Geologist, gets into the down and dirty of market performance for April. The Canadian Government/Mint has thrown in the towel on the penny. Did you know a Canadian Penny is worth 1.5 cents? How's that for guaranteed return on investment? Also, Uranium is down, but hardly out! Japan will be restarting nukes again very shortly, and the rest of the world is building them at an incredible rate. Natural gas should be buried and put out of its misery shortly. The price hit $1.96 per mcf last week, and there's no relief in...

    Current TV, the progressive cable network founded by Al Gore and Joel Hyatt, announced minutes ago that it has fired Keith Olbermann, its best-known personality and chief news officer. As is often the case when media companies decide to part ways with a host, Olbermann’s dismissal is effective immediately – he won’t be given a chance to sign off or host a farewell show. Current’s cofounders published a letter to viewers announcing their decision. To the Viewers of Current: We created Current to give voice to those Americans who refuse to rely on corporate-controlled media and are seeking an authentic...

    Recently, our Failed Messiah, Barack Hussein Obama had this to say about the Trayvon Martin fiasco: (Don't worry. This column is NOT about the Creepy Left's new Horst Wessel.

And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident." *********************************** Really, Barry ? I mean, really ? I need to do some soul searching ? In my entire life, I've never (in...
