FROM National Inflation Association (Silver)

NIA Declares Silver Best Investment for Next Decade

We are less than three weeks away from entering the next decade. The most important thing you need to know entering 2010 is that silver is the single best investment for the next decade. In our opinion, investing into silver is the only sure way to tremendously increase your purchasing power over the next ten years.

Throughout world history, only ten times more silver has been mined than gold. If you go back about 1,000 years ago between the years 1000 and 1250, gold was worth ten times more than silver worldwide. From year 1250 to 1792, the gold to silver ratio slowly increased from 10 to 15 and the Coinage Act of 1792 officially defined a gold to silver ratio of 15. The ratio remained at 15 until forty-two years later when the ratio was increased in 1834 to 16, where it remained until silver was demonetized in 1873.

The gold to silver ratio remained between 10 and 16 for 873 years! It is only over the past 100 years that the gold to silver ratio has averaged 50. History will look back at the artificially high gold to silver ratio of the past century as an anomaly, caused by the dollar bubble and the world being deceived into believing that fiat currencies are real money, when in fact they're all an illusion. Next decade, the fiat currency experiment will end badly in a currency crisis. The wealthiest people will be those who bought silver today and were smart enough to research and pick the best silver mining stocks.

While the vast majority of the gold ever produced remains sitting in vaults, 95% of the silver produced has been consumed by industry for thousands of applications in such tiny amounts that most of it will never be recycled and seen on the market again. Nobody knows the exact above ground supply of silver today, but most likely it is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 billion ounces. That's a total worldwide market value of only $17.4 billion, when the world has over $7 trillion in foreign currency reserves, mostly in fiat currencies that they will need to diversify out of due to rampant inflation.

Besides the fact that the world has been ignoring the monetary value of silver, silver prices are artificially low due to a large concentrated naked short position. It's not a coincidence that the day silver reached its multi-decade high of over $21 per ounce in March of 2008, was the same day Bear Stearns failed. Bear Stearns was a holder of a massive short position in silver. In our opinion, this was likely a naked short position because there is nobody in the world who owns such a large amount of silver for Bear Stearns to have borrowed.

The reason why we believe the Federal Reserve was so eager to orchestrate a bailout of Bear Stearns, is because Bear Stearns was on the verge of being forced to cover their silver short position. Because the silver market is so small and tightly held, if Bear Stearns was forced to cover their short position, silver prices could've potentially rose to $50 per ounce or higher overnight. The world would've seen how economically unstable our country is and confidence in the U.S. dollar would've rapidly deteriorated.

JP Morgan still holds the silver short position they inherited from Bear Stearns. The concentrated naked short position in silver today is the largest short position in the history of all commodities, as a percentage of its market size. Eventually, JP Morgan will have to cover this short position or it could jeopardize their existence.

The best evidence that the short position in silver is naked and not backed by real silver, is the differential between what silver trades for on the Comex and what real people are willing to pay for physical silver on eBay. Every hour on eBay, there are dozens of one ounce silver coins selling for approximately $25. That's about a 43% premium over the current spot price of silver. With so much demand for physical silver, we doubt the silver shorts in the paper market will be able to manipulate prices downward for much longer. A major short squeeze could be right around the corner and silver could take off in a way that shocks even those who are most bullish.

What would a return to the gold standard look like?

David Morgan, founder of Silver Investor, believes a return to the gold standard would allow people to understand the true worth of their money. "If the U.S. dollar was re-established as fully convertible to gold, the reserve currency of the world would again be 'as good as gold,'" Morgan said. On the other hand, Michael Carr, chief market strategist at Dunn Warren Investment Advisors, thinks a return to the gold peg would severely limit government response. "Compared with the current economic environment, a gold standard seems to offer a virtual utopia. But, such a standard would make it impossible for the government to rapidly expand spending as they have in the past year."

Puru Saxena, CEO of Puru Saxena Wealth Management, would welcome the reliability a gold standard would offer. "Throughout history, 'paper money' has never worked and everyone would be better off -- not the bankers of course -- with a monetary system whereby currencies are backed by something tangible."

10 Gold Investing Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

1.) Having Unrealistic Short-Term Expectations — Do not make the mistake that so many advisors are hoping you will make. Use gold as a value stabilizer, not a vehicle for turning a small lump of cash into a fortune overnight. Although spikes in price do happen from time to time, the smart investor will always look for the long-term utility of a position before putting their hopes into short-term winnings. Keep your expectations realistic. And remember, patience is key.

2.) Overpaying on Premiums — Contrary to popular belief, just because the market evaluates gold under one price doesn't mean you're guaranteed to pay that price when you buy the metal. Depending on the minter, gold prices may vary quite a bit. Credit Suisse, for example, one of the world's most reputable minters, may charge more for the same quality metal than a smaller, lesser-known outfit. Bearing this in mind, also remember gold purity plays a major role as well. Look to buy only purity, not the brand name.

3.) Buying from Multiple Dealers — If you buy gold from several different dealers, you'll pay several different markups. Buying from one will limit this expense and likely lower your overall costs, due to discounts on bulk rate purchases. Research your vendors carefully; find one that suits your needs and stick with them. Do not test-drive vendors any more than is absolutely necessary.

4.) Owning ETFs over Physical Gold — Although an attractive proposition for many consumers who do not want to deal with the hassle, an ETF does not give you actual physical metal, but rather an interest in it. Add to that the exposure to management fees and the gradual bleeding of certificate value, and an ETF will corrode your investment — thus defeating the purpose of your purchase in the first place. Buy the physical metal and store it yourself.

5.) Owning Gold Stock over Physical Gold — If owning an ETF adds risk, then owning gold stock can be downright speculative. Gold stocks give you no interest in gold whatsoever, just an interest in the company that mines and refines it. Subject to market fluctuations like any other company, gold producers' share prices will experience gains and losses out of proportion to the price of gold and will be further affected by such things as management decisions. If your true goal is to preserve your net worth, and you don't want to spend your days analyzing company performance and balance sheets, stay away from gold stocks.

6.) Knowing How Much to Invest — A common mistake is either putting too much or too little into precious metal. For gold, shoot to invest no less than 10% and no more than 25% of your available assets.

7.) Buying Numismatic Coins Instead of Bullion Coins — Whether you're buying bars or coins, at the end of the day, your goal is to own gold. Numismatic coins derive their value not just from their precious metal content, but also from their rarity and collectability. Again, the demand for such things is hard to predict over time, plus gold purity in old and rare coins is often hard to confirm. To avoid the risk of buying coins at prices inflated by dealers, or coins containing significant percentages of non-precious metals such as copper, stick with standard bullion coins.

8.) Buying American Gold Eagles — I feel the need to point out the American Gold Eagle specifically when mentioning gold coins. Avoid this one! American Gold Eagle coins, first of all, are minted from 91.67% gold and are, therefore, vastly inferior to those minted from .9999 fine gold. But this does not stop their minters from applying high premiums. You end up spending more money on less gold. Furthermore, as US legal tender, the American Eagle actually leaves you exposed to inflation — which you're trying to avoid by buying gold in the first place. Find a better bullion coin like the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf or South African Kuggarand.

9.) Buying Natural Gold Nuggets — Gold nuggets may be appealing those who want to avoid paying premiums for expensive coins, but they create more problems than they solve because of an inherent lack of uniformity in the gold purity. Without precisely screening and evaluating the metal — as would be done prior to the minting of a coin — the gold in gold nuggets will often be darker in color, signifying impurity, or the batch itself may contain non-gold particles. Unless you want worthless material to be included in your gold purchase, stay away from nuggets.

10.) Buying Gold Jewelry — As with nuggets, jewelry is an unreliable source of gold. Not only is the purity of the metal once again a concern, but there is also the added artisan's premium present in all jewelry. The cost applied by the craftsman who made the piece will always inflate the price well past the value of the metal alone. Therefore, while jewelry may have value in its own right, it has no place in the hands of an investor who is looking to own gold as an asset.

Good Investing,

Will the government try to confiscate Silver?

Question of the Week

Question -- This is the most commonly asked question-- will silver be confiscated? Here are some of my thoughts...

Answer -- So this is what I say to you: Let the United States government try to confiscate silver under the pretext that it is a strategic metal and you will see the biggest meltdown on the Internet that there has ever been. Early in the 20th century, President Franklin Roosevelt confiscated gold and got on the radio and smoothed things over with a fireside chat. But folks, there is no "fireside" anymore.

Let them try this time! I say to you, it will not be so simple, or so easy. The word will spread - the truth will come out. It is a manipulation of silver, not an emergency. It is a grab by bankers and short-sellers, not a patriotic request. We live in an exciting age, my friends, on the cusp of a communications' enlightenment not seen since Gutenberg Press overthrew the ruling hierarchy 500 years ago. How so?

Are we at a similar point again readers? If so, it will only take 10 or so - that is magic of technology (the Internet) which doubles in speed and impact and then doubles again, and again. And we are into the 10 years already. Look for the signs of the thaw - they are all about you. It is no accident that Mexico is considering a silver backed currency (addressed this in the June issue of TMR), or that the Soviet Union has collapsed or that China continues to privatize. People believe these are all dissonant events, unlinked. Only much later will it become clear that we are in the midst of a historical communications revolution that is shattering the most coercive regimes and completely reconfiguring the power structure as we go.

I say to you with absolute conviction that they cannot confiscate this time. They believed that 9/11 would give them the Patriot Act and a great victory in the U.S. for the forces of coercion and arbitrary exercise of power. It has not worked out that way. The forces of liberty, unleashed by the power of the Internet are winning, and will continue to win in this most historic of all decades. Oh, you might not see it that way but remember the biggest--PUSH-- comes right before the fall... Think about GM and how much advertising they are doing now... yet they are toast!

The next five years will go down in history as the decade that shattered the iron grip of socialism and reconfigured the plans of world dominance that all-too-many harbored. Dan Rather is gone. It takes years to subvert liberty - generations in fact need to be "programmed" in a particular way. All that work, several generations worth in this country anyway - dating back at least to the Civil War - is going by the boards now. People are discovering liberty on their own and thinking for themselves.

No, confiscation in this environment will NOT be easy. It will not be clean. People will NOT line up to hand over their silver. Not this time. Not in this day. Not with this Internet!

Better Get Ready! NOW! TODAY!! DON'T WAIT!!!

Find somebody in Dubai. Because from that distant desert kingdom comes word that the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) has finished building a state-of-the-art precious metals vault, with world-class tracking and security systems. Think Fort Knox, but in the desert and without the trees and pretty landscaping we see in the hills of Kentucky.You want "hoarding behavior"? The new vault will become the home for the exchange-traded fund (ETF) of Dubai Gold Securities. Also, "It's a natural home for the central banks in the region to store their gold in Dubai, rather than in London, where they have typically held their gold," said a Dubai-based gold dealer INTL Commodities DMCC's CEO Jeffrey Rhodes. Yep. "Natural home." (Margaret Mead, call your office!)A DMCC official stated that the new vault will be used to store precious metals associated with precious metal-based ETFs that are on the drawing boards and scheduled for launch later in 2009. This can only add to worldwide demand for gold and silver, especially from the traditionally gold-friendly Middle East.OK, so here's the bottom line. When the American people realize that the dollar is in for another round of inflation, they're going to look for a way out. When people envision the future decline in their purchasing power, we'll see a rush for the monetary exits. It'll be the "Gold Panic" of 2009, or 2010 or 2011... Whichever year gets the naming rights.When the reality sinks in, people will flock in droves to physical precious metals (yeah, try to get some!), as well as mining shares. I'm old enough to remember the last time it happened, in the 1970s and early 1980s. And I've studied enough history to know it won't be pretty.So beat the gold rush! Hoard now!

When they debased Gold

For 99% of recorded history, emperors, kings, and parliaments "struggled" with the limitations of gold. If Henry VIII, for instance, wanted to spend money to stimulate the English economy, he had a few choices as to where to get the gold: tax his citizenry, borrow from the bankers in Holland, dig for gold in his own realm, or seek to plunder gold from foreign sources through war or blackmail. All of these options involved significant costs and pitfalls. Henry's easiest means to expand his money supply was to debase his gold by secretly mixing in base-metal alloys. However, such a ruse was easily detected by sophisticated market participants, who would subsequently shun Henry's coinage. The result was that the governments of the world could only spend what they had.
Despite these "limitations", the global economy expanded significantly over the centuries. The march from ancient, to medieval, to renaissance, and ultimately to industrial economies occurred without the ability to easily or rapidly expand money supplies. This is because the key to economic growth is not to push up aggregate demand, as the Keynesians would argue, but to increase the efficiency and amount of goods produced. As a result, despite wars, pestilence, natural disasters, and famines, the general march of economics had always been upward. During that time, money generally increased in value as greater efficiency expanded the number of goods that a given weight of gold could buy.
But modern economists tend to ignore the period of history before the Great Depression - which is, in fact, most of history - and instead focus solely on the period since the supply of non-gold "fiat" money has been expanded at will. Although the drift began before the Second World War (with the devaluations of the Roosevelt Administration), the end did not come until 1971, when President Nixon officially dissolved the linkage between the U.S. dollar (the world's reserve currency) and gold. Since that time, the supply of U.S. dollars has expanded exponentially and has resulted in the currency losing more than 80% of its value.

GOLD - The Daily Reckoning

The word "unprecedented" seems too weak to convey just how much money is being printed and/or borrowed to buy off the recession. So, when will all this money start showing up as higher prices at the supermarket and shopping mall? And when will gold react to this bumper crop of paper?The historical record indicates that a surge in money growth has its peak effect on economic activity about 9 to 18 months later. Add another 12 months or so for the peak effect on consumer price inflation. In other words, the Federal Reserve is always driving with a loose steering wheel. Most of the experience behind those numbers is with relatively tame ups and downs in the business cycle - not the kind of financial violence we've been seeing lately - which adds another variable. And on top of that, the numbers are about peak effect, not initial effect.So the timing remains uncertain. But what we do know is that there are clear and unavoidable consequences to wildly energetic money creation, including, sooner or later, rampant price inflation.
"The word 'unprecedented' seems too weak to convey just how much money is being printed and/or borrowed to buy off the recession. So, when will all this money start showing up as higher prices at the supermarket and shopping mall? And when will gold react to this bumper crop of paper?"We're beginning to see interest in gold from the mainstream, which is encouraging. And enthusiasm from the general investing public will be what ultimately sends gold to the moon. Here's what we've observed over the past 30 days: 1. A number of mainstream economists and fund managers are openly expressing interest in gold. "The government can print endless money, but they cannot increase the supply of gold," said Michael Pento, chief economist at Delta Global Advisors Inc. "Anything the government cannot replicate by decree, I want to own." The firm, with $1.5 billion in assets, is doubling its gold holdings to 8%. We saw very little of this six months ago. 2. The mining industry has recovered its ability to raise capital. Take a look at the recent financings for some gold companies:
Newmont $1.2 billion
Newcrest $476 million
Kinross Gold $414 million
Agnico-Eagle $290 million
Red Back Mining $150 millionCompare this to the financial woes we hear continually about banks, brokerages, and government agencies. The only capital they can attract is government handouts. 3. While there are much better ways to turn gold into cash, Cash4Gold (who advertised during the Super Bowl) and similar businesses bombarding the airwaves with their pitches have sensitized the public to the topic of gold. Expect the interest in the yellow metal - and its price - to increase in a serious way. 4. January's Cambridge House Investment Conference in Vancouver was well attended, with the second day setting a record. Every session was packed, standing-room-only for most speakers, including Casey Research's Louis James and Marin Katusa.While no one was emphatic about the timing, most speakers agreed that at some point gold will be sought as a safe haven by the masses, who will catapult the price to new highs. Here is a quote from John Embry, chief investment strategist, Sprott Asset Management:"The average retail investor has little or no investment in gold and no understanding of how important it will be. The year 2009 will be volatile, but volatility is a small price to pay for where gold is headed. An explosion in gold and silver is inevitable in the years to come." The overriding theme was clear: Gold is going up. Period. It may or may not happen as quickly as you want, but the recent range trading hasn't defused its explosive potential.So when will gold take off? The signal won't be inflows to ETFs (although they are indicators), or jewelry sales (the '70s bull market had nothing to do with bracelets), or even sales of physical bullion (we had that in '08 and gold was up 5.5%, hardly meteoric). No, the payday rise in gold will occur when there is a significant shift in the psychology of the general public. And whether the glory days are just months from now or a year or two away, it's clear that the oasis is real and lies ahead. Is your cup ready?Regards,Jeff Clarkfor The Daily Reckoning

Zimbabweans must pan for gold to pay for food and merchandise. Merchants will no longer take the phony paper money that is now considered totally worthless. We better wake up. Inflation will be coming on strong, the dollar is constantly losing value and can end up totally worthless also. Accumulate silver and gold to be prepared for the worse. Silver is projected to move to $50, $75, $100 an ounce and more. Gold will move to $1000, $1500, $2500 and more.

The Golden Revival

Are You Ready for the Golden Revival? By Bob Livingston • Mar 2nd, 2009 • Category: Bob Livingston, Government, Personal Liberty Articles, Preserving Wealth

Congress has passed a $787 billion spending bill aimed at—congressional Democrats said—stimulating the U.S. economy. But it won’t stimulate anything other than the green ink and paper industry. Because it is an excuse for the Federal Government to turn its money-printing presses on full speed and keep them running 24/7.
This type of stimulus package is doomed to fail. The French tried something similar in the 18th Century when John Law was retained to advise the government in economic policy. He advocated that money was credit and credit was determined by the needs of trade. Therefore, the money in existence is determined by the supply of credit in the economy rather than the imports of gold or in trade balances. So Law proposed the establishment of a state-chartered bank with the power to issue unbacked paper currency. Sound familiar?
Within four years France’s Banque Générale collapsed following a run on the bank, and France and the rest of Europe were plunged into a severe economic recession. The result of Law’s banking schemes so traumatized the French people that until recently the very word “banque” was anathema to the French financial community.
A similar experience hit Germany in the early part of the 20th Century. From 1918 to 1923, the Weimar Republic began printing money at a dizzying rate, setting off hyperinflation. Prices were rising so fast that workers receiving their pay would immediately run to the store to buy foodstuffs before prices climbed again. In trying to keep up with the falling currency rate, Reichsbank printed a 1,000-billion Mark note that was so worthless that when it was spent few bothered to collect the change. By 1923, with one dollar equal to one trillion Marks, the collapse of German currency was complete.
Fast forward to 2009 in the United States. Less than a year after the Fed authorized spending $850 billion to spur the economy the Congress is already doubling the spending. Where does the money come from? Thin air.
It is fiat money, based on nothing. And it dooms the country to an economic collapse.
There’s one way to prepare yourself, and you need to begin immediately. Buy gold, as its value is about to soar! How do we know? We use history as our guide.
At the peak of the bull market in the 1920s, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was more than 20 times higher than the price of gold. When the market crashed it bottomed out at about 36, roughly a 1-1 ratio with the price of one ounce of gold. The next boom came in 1966, and again the Dow was worth 20 times the price of one ounce of gold. When the bottom of the next recession hit the Dow was worth about 850 points and gold was about $850 per ounce.
Next came the bull market that began in 2003. The Dow peaked at 14,164.53 on Oct. 9, 2007. That month gold hit $750 per ounce, which was Dow-to-gold ratio of almost 19-1. Since then the Dow has lost almost half its value and gold is climbing. Look what gold can do as it approaches a 1-1 ratio.
Gold doesn’t even have to reach a 1-1 ratio to give spectacular returns. Consider, with gold at $940 and Dow at 7,000, the ratio is at 7-1. Even if the Dow contracts another 1,000 points, gold at 3-1 would more than double in price to $2,000.
It’s difficult to argue with history, but if you’re still afraid to go with gold you have an alternative. Buy stock in green ink.

GOLD IN THE ART OF BREAD CONSUMPTIONby The Mogambo Guru -Adrian Ash of explains that the way it all works is very simple, once you understand that "Amid the Great Depression of the late 1920s and '30s, Keynes called for Great Britain and then the rest of the world to stop redeeming its paper notes for gold coins or bullion" which would allow for the creation of more paper money, and thus, "the supply of money and credit could then start flowing freely once more, boosting demand for goods and services and sparking an inflation in prices that would make the value of outstanding debts evaporate." Wow! What a scam huh?Well, this is supposed to be the reason for all of this massive, new, unprecedented, astonishing, astounding economic stimulus spending; it supposedly bails out debtors through the brain-dead expediency of inflation in prices, thus aiding debtors at the expense of everybody else!Whether or not this theory is true, I don't know, but I don't think so, as I have never read anything like, "From the moment that the government started creating and spending large amounts of money, everything got better and better, and the more money that was created for the government to spend, the better things got, until they reached Utopia and everybody lived happily ever after."And by the term "at the expense of everybody else" I do not mean "me" and I do not mean "you", as all we need do is take the simple precaution to convert everything into gold, silver, oil, weapons, ammo, maybe a large-screen TV and a comfy recliner-chair for your Mogambo Bunker Of Cowardly Retreat (MBOCR), plus some yummy treats of various highly-processed salty and/or chocolate varieties full of sugar and chemicals to keep that crucial sharp "edge"!Mr. Ash notes that Stephen Harmston, erstwhile economist at Bannock Consulting, wrote that "across 2,500 years, gold has retained its purchasing power, relative to bread at least" which is seemingly proved when one considers that "It is said that an ounce of gold bought 350 loaves of bread in the time of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, who died in 562 BC" which is roughly what it buys today, a stretch of 2,500 years, while the dollar, on the other hand, has lost 97% of its buying power since 1913, less than 100 years ago, when the detestable Federal Reserve was given its diabolical unholy control of the nation's banks and money by a corrupt Congress and allowed by a corrupt Supreme Court.Mr. Harmston is not interested in hearing my "The Federal Reserve is evil and so is the Supreme Court" rant again, especially since it is all I ever rant about, but goes on to reveal that, "The same ounce of gold still buys approximately 350 loaves of bread today."Drawing myself up, I let a victorious sneer cross my face as I say, "This proves to me that gold holds its value when nothing else does, and especially against a fiat currency, which never does, either, only a lot faster! Hahaha!"Nobody laughed at my little joke, and I decided that perhaps they wanted something more data-oriented instead of my stupid little jokes that never really make complete sense when you stop and look at them.So I look, and with gold at $993 and cheap bread at about $3 a loaf, it looks to me like gold is just about where it was for the last 2,500 years! Amazing!And the better news is that it will get better than this, as Patrick A. Heller at writes, "The money supply of all of the world's major currencies is now increasing by 10-30 percent annually. With the gold supply increasing by less than 2 percent annually, it is a virtual certainty that all currencies will fall in value against gold" and as bread crosses that $5 per loaf mark, and that $7 per loaf mark, and that $10 per loaf mark, then gold will go up right along with it!And with universal participation, because all currencies will fall due to over-issuance, everybody in the whole world is going to jealously watch their neighbors and relatives making profits by buying gold and holding it against the guaranteed loss of buying power of their money! Wow! Everybody in the world!And how many people does it take, with universal participation, to make a boom in gold like you've never seen before? Whee! This investing stuff is easy!- - Until next time,The Mogambo Guru for The Daily Reckoning -P.S. As gold continues to pound the world of fiat currencies into submission by maintaining its purchasing power - while idiotic central banks around the Entire Freaking Globe (EFG) destroy the power of their own paper money by mass producing debt and treasuries - it seems only logical that you should be buying as much of this yellow metal as humanly possible.

Editor's Note: Richard Daughty is general partner and COO for Smith Consultant Group, serving the financial and medical communities, and the editor of The Mogambo Guru economic newsletter - an avocational exercise to heap disrespect on those who desperately deserve it.

Jason Hommel on Silver

So, what is silver? It's not just money. It's information. Since silver is not being used as money as a medium of exchange, that is evidence that no free market exists, and that economic failures are a failure of central planning, not a failure of the free market.
Silver is telling us that for too long, families and corporations and governments have preferred to voluntarily enslave themsleves with unpayable debts of paper money that was created by a government granted monopoly given to the Federal Reserve, who increasingly rules without the approval or knowledge of Congress.
The economic failures of today are the failures of slavery. Even when debts are entered into voluntarily, to an entity with a government granted monopoly, it's not really freedom.
Silver and paper are opposites.
Silver is payment in full. Paper is a promise to pay, and/or evidence that you have parted with your silver, or been willing to delay payment, or work for nothing, as a slave.
Silver is information, motivation, pursuasion, and freedom.
Paper money, then, is deception, oppression, force, and slavery.
When people get good information, they become intelligent.
When people make good use of valid information, they are wise.
Silver is not just information then, but rather it is the evidence of wisdom.
Especially at today's low prices.
To benefit from the wisdom of silver, you have to hold it yourself. You cannot own an ETF, or silver certificate, or silver futures contract to get the benefits. All such paper promises will fail as the entire system of paper promises comes crumbling down, as it periodically should, to restore freedom to mankind.
Don't tell yourself that you cannot afford to store it. If you can afford to buy it, you can afford to protect it. Buy a safe. Bolt it down. A safe will protect its contents 99.9% of the time, and is the perfect place to store all things .999 fine.

It has been my life's work for the past ten years to work on this one thing:
If I had one wish, it would be that people would wake up to the wisdom of owning and exchanging physical silver, and reject supporting the fraud and slavery of paper money, so that mankind could enter another golden age of prosperity and freedom.=====

The price of gold and silver has now made significant moves towards its previous highs,
gold pushing above $900 and silver above $12 but there remains much volatility between
now and their ultimate ascent, an ascent guaranteed by the accelerating debasement of
fiat paper currencies as governments attempt to shock their moribund economies into life
with unlimited amounts of fiat money and credit.
Whether gold and silver’s recent moves are a portent of more shortly to come or if they
will be met again with renewed resistance from central banks remains to be seen. Either
way, rest assured that the battle between the paper boys of Wall Street, the power brokers
of Washington DC and the free market is still in progress.
Wall Street may be but a badly damaged shadow of its recent past but its co-conspirators
in manipulating the markets, the central bankers and their enablers in government are still
committed to maintaining their fiefdoms no matter how high the cost—as long as those
costs are born by the taxpayers.
Someday, in the future however, a future that is closer today than it was yesterday, gold
and silver will triumph despite the best efforts of central bankers and government
manipulators to prevent it
For central bankers and those in government are up against the market itself and no
matter how much paper they have at their disposal, their supplies of gold are limited.
Each ounce bought takes another ounce out of the arsenal governments use to suppress
gold’s price, an arsenal comprised of our central banks.
Buy gold. After all, it was yours and still for only a short while, it is being subsidized by
your government as it continues its fight against your interests and a free market
unfettered by bankers’ credit.
Have faith and buy gold and silver until better days arrive.

Historically, the yellow metal has moved with the euro and opposite to the U.S. dollar. This relationship has reversed in recent months. Now, gold is closely tracking the U.S. dollar.
This shows that when Europeans get scared about their currency, they run for the safety of the two other global currencies — the U.S. dollar and gold.
And it's not just Europe. In January gold rose significantly against all major world currencies. In most currencies except in the U.S. dollar and the Japanese yen — the other "safety currency" — gold actually made an all-time-high.
Why are European investors so scared? Their currency is in serious trouble.
That fear crystallized in comments by mega-investor George Soros at the recent meeting of the world's movers and shakers in Davos, Switzerland. In an interview with Austria's Der Standard newspaper, Soros said that the euro may not survive unless the European Union presses for an international agreement on dealing with soured assets.

Trend forecaster, renowned for being accurate in the past, says that America will cease to be a developed nation within 4 years, crisis will be "worse than the great depression"
The man who predicted the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union is now forecasting revolution in America, food riots and tax rebellions - all within four years, while cautioning that putting food on the table will be a more pressing concern than buying Christmas gifts by 2012.

Gerald Celente, the CEO of Trends Research Institute, is renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, which will send a chill down your spine considering what he told Fox News this week.

Celente says that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts.

"We're going to see the end of the retail Christmas….we're going to see a fundamental shift take place….putting food on the table is going to be more important that putting gifts under the Christmas tree," said Celente, adding that the situation would be "worse than the great depression".

"America's going to go through a transition the likes of which no one is prepared for," said Celente, noting that people's refusal to acknowledge that America was even in a recession highlights how big a problem denial is in being ready for the true scale of the crisis.

Celente, who successfully predicted the 1997 Asian Currency Crisis, the subprime mortgage collapse and the massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar, told UPI in November last year that the following year would be known as "The Panic of 2008," adding that "giants (would) tumble to their deaths," which is exactly what we have witnessed with the collapse of Lehman Brothers, Bear Stearns and others. He also said that the dollar would eventually be devalued by as much as 90 per cent.

"The real beauty of silver is that since it is a vital industrial commodity, and has been consumed by industry, it has become scarce, and should outperform gold as a store of value in the future, which is the primary reason that people should want silver and gold.
The real beauty of silver is that so few men desire silver as a store of value today, so that when that begins to change, the value will increase dramatically, and the value will rise exponentially, and create so much wealth for so many men who have the capacity to think and plan for the future. And it is good for society for such men to be rewarded!
Silver is often not perceived as if it is as good as gold, because it is heavier than gold, for an equivalent dollarized value, given the price ratio of about 75:1. However, since so few old men (as old men these days often have so much of the money) are willing to do the work of lifting silver, that's exactly why you should take the pains to do so. Or, if you are younger, at least try to convince your parents to store silver, as you can do the work for them. "

In early 2009, the big news will be the U.S. Mint's much anticipated release of the full-version Ultra High Relief $20 gold piece based on the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens design, often considered the most beautiful coin design in U.S. history. Expect this spectacular coin to be a hit with collectors when it's released in early 2009, which will continue to draw widespread attention to the coin market. The new one-ounce double-thick, smaller diameter coin will be dated 2009; made of .9999 24 karat gold; have four more stars than the original ( to acknowledge the four states added since 1907) and also have the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" added.

Did you know that it is still possible to find silver coins in circulation? Silver has skyrocketed in value and so finding one of these coins can be a real treasure indeed! In particular, there are dimes, nickels, quarters, half dollars, and full silver dollars that are still possible to find in your pocket change.
Here is what you should look for. First of all, some of the easier ones to find, and the silver nickels, only because of their recent issue date. They began making quarters partially out of silver in 1932 and ended using silver in 1962. Now just so you are aware, if you were to find a silver quarter from this time period, its intrinsic value (metal value) is now over $2! So, in other words, if you were to have a roll of silver quarters ($20); it would actually be worth about $160.
Another coin to look for is the mercury dime. This silver dime was in circulation from 1916 to 1945. These would be a little bit harder to find, but it is still possible.
The silver half dollar in circulation from 1964 to 1970 is thought by some to be the easiest to find. And this may indeed be possible due to its recent issue date. One of the better techniques for “searching” for these coins is through coin roll hunting. Essentially you ask for a roll of half dollars at your local bank, then you hunt through them, keeping the years that you want; and then “selling” back the rest. So, you can get a roll of coins for face value and pick out the most valuable ones that everyone else passes over!
Another coin to look for is the war nickel. The war nickel was minted from 1942 to 1945, just after the buffalo nickel.

*** “I’m not optimistic about the global economy,” says our old friend, Marc Faber. “The next Madoff case – the next Ponzi scheme – is the U.S. government. It will go bust. It is only a question of time.”
When will the U.S. government go bust? When the weight of all the fixes finally crushes it. That is when the last bubble of the entire bubble cycle finally explodes – when the government itself is de-leveraged...when U.S. Treasury bonds crash...and the dollar comes down.
What do you do to protect yourself? There aren’t too many choices. Because you never know when or how it will happen.
“Gold functions as a protection against your central bank doing stupid things,” says Felix Zulauf.
“One day the price of gold will be higher than the Dow Jones,” adds Faber.

Silver was at $12.38 an ounce today and Gold was at $916.80 an ounce. As the dollar sinks, it is believed that Silver can go to $100, $200 or more an ounce and Gold to $2000, $3000 or more an ounce.

Why Now?Do you remember the last time gold sold for over $2,000 per ounce?Of course you do. Maybe you didn't think of that way. But actually, gold has already sold for more than $2,000 per ounce. Let me show you.First, you have to think for a moment as if it's 1971. Gold is selling for $35. This is the year Nixon breaks it from ties to the dollar. Gold prices start climbing. By 1975, it's hit $196. And by 1980, we're talking $850. Sure, you say, that I remember.But maybe you also remember back then you could you could also make $27,700 per year and it was a pretty decent living. About as good as making $100,000 per year today.You could also buy a house for $50,000 then and, just on an inflation basis, it would be worth $250,000 today. (In real estate terms, it might sell now for $500,000 or more.) And back then, you could retire on $270,000 in savings... and it would be as good today as being a millionaire.So you can see, trying to compare yesterday's gold price to today's — on an even basis — is like trying to compare apples and armadillos!In today's dollars, 1975 gold at $196 is more like $750 in the current market. And 1980 gold, the peak year at the historical price of $850, would now clock in closer to $2,176. And remember, this is what you get using only the most conservative market calculation of gold's worth. There are other, even more telling ways to value gold.

Silver Demand- Silver Shortage

Silver Demand - - -
45% = Industrial
27% = Jewelry & Silverware
18% = Photography
10% = Coins & Medals

Take my word for it, when the Silver Shortage hits, some users will panic. They will do anything to keep their production lines rolling. Only when the shortage scares them will they attempt to build silver inventories. The users drove palladium, at its peak,up to$1100/oz. from $60 ten years earlier, or almost 20 times, to keep those production lines running. You do the math - - what's 20 times the price of silver? (At around $10 = $200) Big investors and big users can't buy real silver in size, and the latter are sure to panic, because they collectively hold maybe a week's worth of silver inventory. This isn't rocket science. This is a way for the average person to make a score. It's simple. Buy real silver, put it away and forget about it until they talk about it on the evening news. This coming silver event has been 60 years in the making. It's going to be big news. Put silver to work for you and don't miss out on this mind-boggling story.

Silver Eagles

This morning when I checked, Gold was up $28.60 to $835 an ounce and Silver was up 60 cents to $11.04 an ounce. So I went to my coin dealer and purchased about 20 Silver Eagles.
American Eagle Silver Dollars are congressionally authorized and produced by the United States Mint at West Point, New York and are legal tender coins with a face value of one dollar (though they are worth considerably more since the market price of one ounce of silver has been many times greater than one dollar for more than four decades). Unlike silver medallions, silver bars, or art bars, American Eagles are "Official Legal Tender" guaranteed by the U.S. Government as to silver weight and silver purity.
Since the first day American Silver Dollars were released in 1986, they've been the most highly prized and most popular Silver Bullion Coins in the world! Many consider the design of the coin to be one of the most beautiful coins ever produced. Requiring no assaying, American Eagles are easily converted to cash at any time.
The obverse (front) of the coin features Adolph A. Weinman's stunning walking Liberty design originally used on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916 through 1947. The reverse design is a rendition of a heraldic eagle by John Mercanti and also features a shield, with 13 stars, representing the 13 original American colonies, positioned above the eagle's head. Highly prized for their historical beauty and pure silver content, American Eagle Silver Dollars are the largest Silver Dollars ever issued by the U.S. Mint. (These are impressively large and substantial coins.) By law, each coin contains one full troy ounce of PURE silver. Each coin contains 1.0000 troy ounce of 0.9993 pure silver and is 40.6m ( 1.598 inches) in diameter.
Every Silver Eagle is a work of art, minted to exacting standards by the United States Mint. These classic coins are among the most affordable ways to own government minted bullion coins.
This is why it is imperative that you start putting and turning over some or as much as you can of your paper dollars into Silver and Gold coins.
Just today it was announced about the crash of Bank of America. Bank Crisis II is beginning NOW. Bank of America posted a massive $1.79 BILLION dollar loss in the last three months of 2008 . . . it slashed dividends . . . and accepted a $1.38 BILLION dollar emergency lifeline.

Now let's talk about Gold. Why am I bullish on Gold?

Gold is the ultimate currency - - the only real money in the world! Here are three reasons why this has never been more true than today.

1) There is NOT a single central bank or financial institution in the world that can create more gold. Its supply is extremely limited. All the gold ever mined in the history of the world would fit into two Olympic-size swimming pools!!

2) Meanwhile, every central bank on the planet is printing fiat money like crazy. They don't have many other choices. Here in the U.S., the Federal Reserve will likely end up creating at least $3 TRILLION of new money to throw at the economy. But, and this is very important, when the wheels of commerce and business begin to turn again . . . when banks begin to lend again. . . and when investors start ot pull money out from underneath their mattresses - - you are going to see a tidal wave of WORTHLESS money get thrown into the markets.
And when that happens, it will re-inflate almost all tangible assets. And the chief benefiary? GOLD!

3) If you think the financial crisis is bad thus far, tighten your seatbelts because it's about to get a heck of a lot worse. So far, we've seen the debt bubble burst only in the private sector. And to be sure, it's the biggest bubble to burst yet.
But here's what's starting now: The bursting of the public debt bubble, Washington's debt bubble . . . the beggest in the world. . . dwarfing all others.
I am referring to the more than $70 TRILLION in debts Washington has incurred that is comprised of the more than $10.6 TRILLION in national debt . . . the $58 TRILLION in unfunded Social Security obligations and Medicare IOUs. . . and more.
Not to mention the $1.2 TRILLION in fiscal stimulus programs coming down the pike. . . and surely more government spending on the horizon.

BOTTOM LINE: Hold that gold (and silver), the ultimate currency!!

$200 an ounce silver?

Can it happen? The most widely followed silver analyst in America thinks so. Theodore Butler claims that the bullish factors affecting silver are so combustible they could set off a firestorm of panic buying that would temporarily drive silver to $200 or more per ounce.

Nine Reasons Why Silver Could Spike to $200 an Ounce or More

1) A short squeeze in the futures market.
2) A demand for repayment of millions of ounces of silver sold through leasing.
3)A shortage affecting industrial users who must have silver (Palladium jumped to $1,090 in 2001).
4) Severe inflation.
5) Possibility that real silver does not exist to back up silver storage certificates.
6) Worldwide scramble for silver by retail investors.
7) Complete elimination of the above ground supply of silver (running out of silver).
8) Overwhelming Asian demand for commodities.
9) The deficit between supply and demand grows dramatically wider.

"Nothing in the world has the potential to multiply your net worth like silver." Theodore Butler, silver analyst

Investment Rarities says, "The silver story has yet to come to the attention of the public. Most Americans don't realize how truly important silver is to industry and how strong the demand is. Nor do they know that the U.S. government, which had over 3 billion ounces of silver in 1942, ran out of silver last year. Even the national defense stockpile is gone. And most of all, they don't know that the current shortage of silver is greater than the known world supply. There is not going to be enough silver to go around!"

This blog is going to show you how the system of paper money is failing because of being taken off the gold and silver standard but most of all, what you can do to protect yourself and how to accumulate gold and silver coins and bars to protect yourself. You can actually go through and come out of the recession/depression as wealthy as you want.

Keep in touch and informed.
