Venezuela and You

 

There’s a particularly wonderful gal that works in my wife’s office, who does the scheduling for her. My wife owns a small business called “A Better Solution” which revolves around homecare. We’re the people you call when your mom’s got dementia and you don’t want her alone. Or maybe your dad needs a ride to the doctors, or maybe you just got out of the hospital and need a little help with housekeeping and meal prep. Yep, that’s us. ( By  the way, if you’re in need of any services such as that in North Port, Charlotte Harbor, Punta Gorda, etc, give us a call!)

July 4
 
Like most things in History, it isn’t exactly as you think. Let’s look:
 
During the American Revolution, the legal separation of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain in 1776 actually occurred on July 2, when the Second Continental Congress voted to approve a resolution of independence that had been proposed in June by Richard Henry Lee of Virginia declaring the United States independent from Great Britain's rule. After voting for independence, Congress turned its attention to the Declaration of Independence, a statement explaining this decision, which had been prepared by a Committee of Five, with Thomas Jefferson as its principal author. Congress debated and revised the wording of the Declaration, finally approving it two days later on July 4. A day earlier, John Adams had written to his wife Abigail:

Civil War, Is it Coming?
 
If you didn’t look for it, you wouldn’t know, and frankly, most don’t look for it. No, most people are quite content to go on with their lives, watch their goofy TV shows, post meaningless junk to face book and think about what beer they’ll buy for the weekend games.
 
The world seems almost perfect to those people. They get up, they say hi to their spouses and 2.4 kids, they walk past the white picket fence and get in their leased vehicle, and head to an office, where they spend a few hours working, and a few hours posting to social media or sneaking porn.

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.
