“Woe to the land whose king is a child and whose leaders are already drunk in the morning. Happy the land whose king is a nobleman, and whose leaders work hard before they feast and drink, and then only to strengthen themselves for the tasks ahead”. (Eccl 10: 16-17)


"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat


Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Silver reaches within 20 cents of $50

Silver is on fire in Asian trading this evening moving to a session high of $49.82 after which is rapidly dropped a full $1.00 in price before bouncing back over $49 again. It is extremely volatile right now and I mean "VOLATILE". The price is swinging all over the place within mere seconds.

Its strength is helping to pull Gold higher as well which has gone on to hit a new all time high at $1518.40 as I write this.

What is remarkable about this is that the Dollar is actually higher  this evening in Asian trade.
