Hello, Frank here.
I spend way too much time reading and researching about what the future seems to be bringing us at a rapid pace, and there is a lot of good stuff out there on the internet. I don't waste my time with the
major news medias, unless it's a major news story dealing with some type of natural disaster or something of that nature. But in my readings I run across a type of high level scam that is difficult to identify at first. They all start out telling you about how bad the economy is, most of them have lots of nice pretty charts. What they all boil down to is they know a secret that nobody else knows. They are only going to share this secret with just you and a few other lucky folks. Boy, if that's not a con game, I've never seen one. People fall for these things every day. Give me your money. I am happy, you can be happy too.
Why do all of these billionaire investment company articles end up with 'give your money to me'? If you want to pitch your money down a never ending hole, give your money to me. Buy my stock, it's the only one that's going to survive. Here's one prime example. They're going to take all the money, they're going to close all the banks. Times are going to be really, really hard. But I will save you from collapse. Invest in my mining stock.
Well, let's look a little deeper now. Mines use a huge amount of energy. That means the power grid will be up and running. They need a huge
amount of fuel, let's say diesel, which means the oil fields will still be working, the refineries will still be up and producing, trucking and shipping will be doing just fine, and the internet, which is were all these orders are placed, will be working fine, too. Okay, how about the workers at that mine? No workers, no mine production. That means that the workers houses are still functioning normal. That means that they have electricity, gasoline, food. Starting to get the picture here?
This article talks about collapse, as do lots of articles. But that's okay. Give me your money and I will invest it in my mining company, or whatever company they're selling that day. It could be laundry detergent. But
everybody has the secret. It's a scam. It's just somebody working on the emotions of people to find a different way to steal their money. I will give you security. Give me your money and you will make a fortune afterwards. Are the things they say in the article true? And it's not just this one article, it's numerous ones. Are we going to have a financial collapse? I would say the chances are very, very good. Has quantitative easing worked? No. Is it going to work in Europe? No. Has it worked in Japan? Of course not. Have we kicked the can down the road a little farther? Yes. And I personally am very glad that they/we have. I like the electricity being on, and having the relative safety that we do right now.
Back to the article. Did the government confiscate precious metals back in the 30's? On something loosely compared to that. Our government is in the process of banning a certain type of common ammunition. This is
probably just a test run to see how this flies. But it's just a matter of time, until through executive order, guns are also banned. It's coming. You can see the writing on the wall. But, yes, the government did confiscate precious metals from individuals. So the article is correct. But what I disagree with is, when everything collapses, I know a secret place to put your money. What's the old saying? If it sounds too good to be true, then it's a lie. So beware of people writing flashy little articles about the future that end with the same message. Buy whatever I am selling or peddling. There are all levels of con men out there.
But wait. I'm giving thought to setting up a charitable organization to support the poor, ailing gold mine workers in South America. So, send me your money and I will make sure that it gets to these poor, ailing mine workers. Remember, humor is the essence of survival. Do your research, do your homework, and don't give your money to some white collar thief. And for that matter, a blue collar thief either.
We'll talk more later, Frank
