Field Day Follow up
 
Last weekend I had mentioned that on Saturday and Sunday, the 23 and 24th, was going to be the “open house” field day for all the ham radio operators across the country. Once a year, people that enjoy playing with short wave radios, go out into “unusual” areas and set up their equipment, to show how they operate, especially during an emergency.
 
I went to our local club, who had set up at the local Red Cross station. But it was a bit more than that, as I didn’t realize the Red Cross had “donated” a small room in their building, for a permanent “short wave emergency communications” station. We’ll chat about that in a minute.

Public Service Announcement
 
As you all know, I like nothing better than to ‘help folks out” and over the years I’ve written a lot about such things as disaster prep, home security, self defense, etc. Over the past several years, I’ve written a couple times about emergency communications, and even had some “ham” operators in studio when I was doing my radio show a couple years back.

This Guy Trump
 
I’ve come through a few Presidents in my life.  But never has one stirred the pot like the present. The people that don’t like him, just don’t “don’t like him” they hate him with a fervor that’s rare to see.
 
Just the other day, Robert De Nero went off the reservation at the 72nd Tony Awards, the annual ceremony that’s supposed to celebrate the best of Broadway. But instead of leading off with praise for the actors and actresses, he felt it necessary to change the script.

Cultural Revolution
 
Early this week, news hit that suggested that the Miss America Beauty Pageant was going to be changed. There would no longer be a swimsuit competition, the girls could decide if they want to wear an evening gown or not, and contestants would no longer be judged on physical beauty. Instead of showcasing their bodies in two piece swimwear, they will instead be interviewed by the panel.

How Many Rabbits?

 

I’ve been in this game for quite a while. I started in 1994 doing seminars for local investment clubs. That migrated into the first newsletter in 1996, and in 1997 we launched the web site.

 

All along the way, there were ills and evils that I pointed out, about how the economy is fake, the economic reports were fudged, the debts were unpayable, and on and on. And yet, through the magic of Central banking, they’ve managed to keep the wheels on this thing. It truly is incredible if you think about it.

Buy Junk?

 

Have you ever heard the term “Junk” Silver?  That’s the commonly used name for US coins that were produced back when Uncle Sam had some integrity, and put real silver in our dimes, quarters, half dollars, etc. Well, it’s not junk and for a couple reasons.

 

Any dime, quarter, or half dollar minted before 1965 is 90% silver, and 10% copper. Then after the coinage act, 1965 – 70 minted coins only had 40% silver. After that? Now that’s true junk. Our coins are a mix of base metals, but nothing precious in them.  They’re only “worth” what Uncle Sam says they are.

The Shooting, How to Survive
 
NOTE>> There’s no market commentary today, I want to use the entire letter to share some things with you all.
 
So, there’s been another high visibility school shooting. I’m not going into the semantics of if this was a false flag, or another patsy hyped up on prescription anti-depressants, or what have you. For today I’m going to tell you mom’s and dad’s what to teach your kids when they’re in school and something like this happens.

Whoa!
 
I had no idea that the article I published on the weekend was going to get me so many responses. In that article, I was talking about California’s new push to have all houses built after 2020 to include some amount of solar power on them.
 
Without redoing the whole article, I spent some time talking about the costs, and the burden to the lower classes that cannot afford to install panels, but who will be paying more for their electricity as the new homes with panels, will consume less from the grid. Someone’s got to pay the Electric company for maintenance, etc, and if there’s less revenue coming in, they will hike prices on remaining consumers.

That Time Of Year
 
A few weeks ago,  for a day, our entire region was out of Verizon telephone service. A few texts would dribble out now and then, but no talk service was available from Tampa all the way to Fort Myers.
 
Verizon was down. For some it was an inconvenience. For others it was truly a life and death matter. Why? Because more people today have cell phone service than hard lines at their homes. With Verizon down, no one on their network could call 911.  People with severe medical problems were in a panic.

Back By Request!
 
I wrote this in May of 2016, just as a lot of the Country was starting to get their gardens going. Well, it’s funny. On a daily and weekly basis, we beat up on Wall Street, the frauds, the manipulations, etc. Yet sometimes it’s when I go off the rails onto a totally different topic that I get the most responses.
 
This was one of them, and wouldn’t you know it, this past week I had 2 people write in with questions about this very letter. So, considering the timing, I dug it up and want to repost it, with a few slight changes.
