    I just listened to the first hour.
    I did not hear a discussion about terrorism!
    I heard a discussion about allocation of resources.

      Quite so.

      I beg to disagree, Professor.

      Jim stated, purely and simply, that we are being attacked by an idiology and not a country. He fèls that Israel is responding appropriately and that the Western World is not.

        Al:

        If you are going to discuss “fighting terrorism” you owe it to yourself and your listeners to discuss “creating terrorists.”

        These guys didn’t pop out of a Cracker Jack box. Someone made them.

          Big Al says:

          You are more than welcome to the last word on this one, Bob. Please don’t tell Cory and I how to run our show. You do your site and we will do ours.

            Robert Moriarty says:

            Al:

            You are the guy always telling me how you want to show both sides of an issue. You had a totally meaningless hour mumbling about fighting terrorism without a single word discussing how terrorists are made and why they suddenly became a problem.

            Pull a bill or a coin out of your pocket and show me one with only a single side.

          • On August 28, 2016 at 2:38 pm,
            Big Al says:

            Bob,

            You have discussed your side of this story numerous times on our Show as have many others. Why do I need to remind you of this? No burr, my friend, Your criticism and opinions are never held back from our site. How can you possibly disagree with this? You seem to be very critical and almost vindictive when the other side is given a forum. Sorry, my friend, but I truly believe in free speech.

        • On August 28, 2016 at 2:44 pm,
          Big Al says:

          I will repeat yet again, Bob, how many times has this opinion been voiced on our Show by you?

      DFS says:

      I remember the actions in Vietnam. I remember the US and other countries (Australia) taking in refugees from the area.
      I don’t seem to recall many acts of terrorism with Vietnamese, Laotians or Cambodians as refugees shooting up or blowing up Americans in revenge.
      And yet my impression of the Vietnamese War was that it involved the needless killing of many innocent people; perhaps more than in the Middle East.

      • On August 27, 2016 at 6:41 am,
        Bonzo Barzini says:

        DFS, that’s because the Viet Namese and Cambodian refugees were not muslims.

    DFS says:

    I wonder why it is in this age of multiculturalism, people are reluctant to even discuss religions and cultures, and their relative merits, morals and immoralities. They would seem to prefer to blindly assume that all religions and cultures are equivalent; equally acceptable. No discussion, no criticism, period.
    Some people think their government is always right. No discussion, no criticism, period.

    • On August 27, 2016 at 10:24 am,

  8. On August 27, 2016 at 3:08 am,
    DFS says:

    I wonder why it is in the American culture, they prefer to seek their own solution to problems without looking at the rest of the world, to see if other countries have come up with a solution to a problem. (I’m thinking here about the Israeli use of profiling to avoid airplane highjaxckings, rather than the extensive and more costly TSA.). But since this is primarily an economics blog, I should not digress.

    • On August 27, 2016 at 10:24 am,
      Big Al says:

      Again, Professor, I completely agree!

    $VIX Daily on the moving average crossover of the 13-day and the 34-day EMA. Notable to the discussion is that volatility moved long before the outcome of the EU independence vote, the independence vote being the capitulation, or the end of the move. Note how the 89-week was tested in the days before the ma crossover in June.

    Chris Martenson was clearly the star of the terrorism segment. He was well spoken and gently challenged the military expert. I wish Ron Paul was on the show to introduce the concept of blow back. Our military is never going to be the answer to terrorism and will likely continue to throw gas on an existing fire.

      Chris is clearly a very insightful and good person.

      Should the military respond when we are clearly attacked by Terrorists? I pretty much agree if you are talking about U.S. involvement in the Middle East. My question to your refers to attacks against us as was the case with 911 and some other local U.S. attacks.

      • On August 27, 2016 at 10:42 am,
        Robert Moriarty says:

        Al:

        There were no terrorists in Iraq until we showed up. And the same is true in Libya and Syria. The basic question should be, just who is attacking who?

        If someone is defending their home and family, village and country against a foreign power who has attacked them, why do we call them terrorists? What was the threat from Iraq or Libya or Syria? How long are we going to continue to wage war on behalf of Israel using the blood of our children and the last of our wealth?

            Ebolan says:

            Pat Buchanan and Ron Paul summed it up correctly when they said, “They’re over here because we are over there.”

            But this is exactly what your rulers want. Your rulers did nothing to stop 9/11. In fact it was the actions of your rulers that lead to the creation of Alqaeda and of ISIS.

            And now your rulers plan to flood the country with millions of middle east immigrants and they know terrorists will be among them.

            And this is exactly what your rulers want. Your rulers want your total submission, for you to be a serf or dead.

            Got it?

            Most people don’t get it and in fact think just the opposite, that their rulers love them and everything they do is for the children.

            Baby Bush was right when he said “Freedumb is on the march.”
            🙁

          • On August 27, 2016 at 4:15 pm,
            Ebolan says:

            How many of you believed this at the time it was said?

            WASHINGTON (CNN) — Noting the “remarkable developments” spreading from Cairo to Kabul, President Bush said Saturday that “the trend is clear: In the Middle East and throughout the world, freedom is on the march.”

          Yes siree Bob….the true terrorists actually took over the U.S in a slow motion coup that started in the 50’s and was completed around 2001. Not sure how you reverse that, but I imagine it would take a serious political awakening to start. Not holding my breath;)

          By the way, I loved the article concerning the Russian release of info,kinda puts things in perspective, its also amazing how the whereabouts of the 6 million # is concealed.
          Thx for your efforts.

        • On August 28, 2016 at 12:55 am,
          Robert Moriarty says:

          Al/Gator:

          Are you seriously maintaining that the US had nothing to do with the creation of ISIS? Even the Pentagon admits that the Chinese Fire Drill in Iraq created ISIS.

          When someone does something to you, like cut your head off, the first thing you need to do is ask, “Why is he so pissed?” Yes, Isis is a bunch of monsters.

          We fund them, we give them weapons, Turkey buys the oil they steal, we created them in the first place and you maintain that we have done nothing to them.

          Are you kidding or just willfully blind?

          One country in the Middle East controls all the chaos and if you notice, they aren’t having any of their people’s heads cut off? When Israel wants peace in the middle east, we will have it. Until then we will have chaos, terrorists, death and destruction.

          The funniest thing is that they pretend they aren’t behind it and they are the real victims.

          Yea, right.

          Our 2nd closest “friend” in the Middle East, Saudi Arabia, has been cutting off heads for a hundred years and Gator doesn’t say anything about that.

            I guess Hillory Clinton addressed alternative news in a recent speech.

            Its gotten enough influence now it has the “rulers” concerned.
            The blogs, the efforts are having an effect.

            Al:

            Would writing and book and dozens of articles talking about what we are facing in the world as a result of our warmongering and incredible stupidity financially perhaps qualify?

            You need to pull that burr out of your saddle, bud.

            Why don’t your military experts discuss something he should be an expert on, such as how to guarantee your side wins a war like this?

            Clashes intensify between U.S.-backed groups in northern Syria

            https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/clashes-intensify-between-us-backed-groups-in-northern-syria/2016/08/28/77f46cea-6d32-11e6-993f-73c693a89820_story.html

            I wrote a whole book discussing where we are, how we got there and what will happen as a result. The best you can come up with is an “Expert” who can justify getting paid for 25 years to fight an enemy that we created. Some expert, he didn’t even mention you can’t fight terrorism. You can prevent it but you can’t fight it.

            Bob, what is the name of your book? I will certainly read it.

            The purpose of this hour was to discuss his side of the story. We will discuss the other side also.

            Amazing how little coverage this got. Fox did a report on it shortly after 9/11 then it went down the memory hole, virtually no other msm mention. But what can you expect when it involves Israel.

            With allies like this who needs enemies?

          • On August 28, 2016 at 2:43 pm,
            Robert Moriarty says:

            Al:

            You have moderators. I am not saying he’s wrong, that’s another issue but how is it that it never occurred to anyone to ask him, “by the way, where did all these terrorists come from?” You can’t fight something you don’t understand how it got there in the first place.

            Yes, we have terrorists. The whole world has terrorists. Where did they come from? How is it that ISIS just popped out from no where all of a sudden?

            The book is called The Art of Peace, it’s on Amazon and I discuss war, being in war, what we are doing wrong and what the result will be.

            It’s not good. The US is headed over a cliff and the average American has no clue. It’s not just financial.

            A couple of weeks ago I drove from Calais to Geneva. I saw one police car in 9 hours of driving. If you drive 120 miles from Phoenix to Tucson, you will see 30 police cars who have stopped cars and trucks. The US isn’t turning into a police state, it’s already there. If you get pulled over you can get killed for having a busted tail light. The borders are closing and soon it will not be possible to leave the US. I got out because I could.

      mark matia, i would challenge your comment, that millitary can never be the solution.

      If/when you have the strongest military in the world, there is always a possible military solution; I am just not sure that the American people have either the leadership or the stomach to achieve a solution. Look, for example, at the criticism Israel has to suffer to protect their citizens.

        The US had the strongest military in the world during Vietnam. We had B-52s doing carpet bombing with flights of up to 27 planes at a time and our “enemy” was carrying AK-47s.

        We lost.

        You never protect your citizens by waging war on imaginary enemies. You protect your citizens by being a good neighbor. Israel is not a good neighbor. Neither is the US.

        When they learn to be good neighbors, we will have peace. Until they learn what peace is or are destroyed by what they have created, we will have death and destruction.

      Military is not the answer to terrorism. And Blow Back, Chalmers Johnson, in theory has some points. But outside of the intellectual and theoretical world, the end game winner is always who is more powerful and working with clear purpose, resources and unity. The United States requires a long term, comprehensive strategy, using all aspects of power (Political, Economic, Informational, Military, Social, Educational) to address a growing threat to western free markets and free thought. The very problem with our national strategy today – to many concerns about “blow-back” and not enough about how to win a battle we are not prepared to fight. Unfortunately, our adversaries are prepared, growing with power, using all aspects of power and subjugating a large portion of the planet. Read Huntington, Clash of Cultures – 20 years old but pretty spot on view of today’s struggles. And you may note historically, the player with the most powerful military dictates the future. You can “hope” soft power will work, but if the opponent has no desire to stop the fight, you are in for a painful lesson – we are learning it all over Europe and now in the US with growing terror attacks. Good luck with wishing it away, ignoring it, or hiding from it, Mr. Paul or Gary Johnson.

    Soros is pure evil. He and the other oligarchs (and our gooberment) want to create chaos in the Middle East so that hordes of migrants will be washed up on our shores and the shores of other countries.

    In an editorial, the Post wrote about the sinister nature of Soros’s attacks on national sovereignty in the United States and throughout the West, and how immigration is at the core of his efforts.

    The following excerpts from the August 22 editorial eloquently sum up what is at stake in our fight for true immigration reform:

    Our World: Soros’s campaign of global chaos

    …Then there are Soros’s actions on behalf of illegal immigration. From the US to Europe to Israel, Soros has implemented a worldwide push to use immigration to undermine the national identity and demographic composition of Western democracies. The leaked emails show that his groups have interfered in European elections to get politicians elected who support open border policies for immigrants from the Arab world and to financially and otherwise support journalists who report sympathetically on immigrants.

    Soros’s groups are on the ground enabling illegal immigrants to enter the US and Europe. They have sought to influence US Supreme Court rulings on illegal immigration from Mexico. They have worked with Muslim and other groups to demonize Americans and Europeans who oppose open borders.

    The point addressed by Mr McKinney on integration of immigrants is an interesting one to me because I grew up in an ethnic community many decades ago and I can tell you for a fact that many among us did not integrate back then either.

    And that was not something anyone could control. Nor was it a threat. The community had its own newspaper, radio station, clubs, bars, restaurants, pool hall and even hair salons where no English was ever spoken. Even the local bank was conducting business on behalf of its customers in another language.

    It doesn’t matter what the language was because that’s beside the point (it was European if you are curious) but all I am pointing out is that there is already something of a tradition among new immigrant groups to try to replicate home on foreign soil so they feel comfortable.

    And plenty don’t fit in well at the beginning. Everyone ought to try living in a foreign country for a few years to know how that feels. Like square pegs in round holes. But that doesn’t make them all bad guys. They are displaced for the most part and don’t have local connections for work, dating, socializing or sport. So they fill in the blanks by bringing something from home to feel more comfortable.

    Like setting up shops full of traditional foods from the old country. Having a local baker who caters to the different tastes and having halls available for banquets, weddings and funerals that were private affairs because they differed from local customs.

    Its the kids who were integrated best. But some of the parents I knew back then (the few who are still alive) never learned English properly. One or two hardly knew a word even after decades because they lived inside an insular community that had established itself outside Europe like a lost island in the middle of an ocean.

    Kind of funny really because I had not ever given it much thought until today but this is going back a long way and when I reflect on it not much is different with the newcomers these days. Even the paranoia and fear of outsiders by some communities is the same.

    Its an old story more about how existing populations are the ones having a harder time adapting to strangers in their midst than it is about newcomers trying to fit in to an unfamiliar country.

    Anyway, that might not be a post that is very well related to the topic but I just thought I would say a few words about integrating in a strange land since I have experienced it first hand quite a few times.

            Mr. Big Al Korelin,

            This country could be safe and for a fraction of what is now being spent on so-called defense.

            All that has to be done is for our gooberment to announce it will stop meddling in the affairs of countries (and nearly all countries throughout the world) as it has been doing for well over a century. For crying out loud it was the meddling of our gooberment that lead to Alqaida and ISIS!

            The gooberment should defend our borders and leave the rest of the world the hell alone.

            The gooberment should make it abundantly clear that we will leave others alone and we expect the same. If not, we will react severely but justly.

            If this were the policy we would be infinitely safer and at a fraction of the cost, but that’s not what the oligarchs that rule us want.

            We and the people in other countries are just pawns to them to be taxed, used and then disposed of.

            Mr. McKinney is part of the problem, not the solution. He worked and continues to work for the oligarchs, Mr. Big Al, not for you or for me or anyone like us.

            If this country continues to believe what the McKinney’s are peddling we will have enemies throughout the world and therefore continuous war and that naturally leads to further erosion of our freedom and the gooberment stealing ever more of what’s left of our wealth. And all that leads to bankruptcy and tyranny!

There’s a lot of energy stored in a base that spans more than two years. As with so many miners, a higher gold price is probably all that is needed to get the real move started.

      If i see a opportunity to ride something up,i´ll take it,quality or not.

      Just my thoughts.

        Hey Pete – funny analogy with the one-eyed horse beating the fastest horse. From my perspective it is more about looking for value as SDMARC was mentioning and finding the good teams (for the long term), but also looking for unrecognized or undervalued opportunities. Sometimes that may show up in a company others consider “crappy” as you mentioned, but if a company is truly junk I don’t typically touch it. There are also small unknown, unloved, or forgotten companies that have an unknown trajectory in front of them, and based on sizing up their land, neighbors, key investors, exploration thesis, development plan, or mining improvements, then I’m willing to take the risk on the project and swing for the fences.

        Personally I like finding tier 2 mines with smaller producers over the tier 1 mines with the massive following of the household names. I am also typically looking for management teams that may be from a prior successful company that migrate 3-4 of their coworkers into a new venture with a few players from another company to form a new Brady Bunch. I have particular interest in advanced exploration, development, near term producers, and the small producers, but like some of the mid-tiers and prospect generators as well.

            Well I didn’t think so, but it has been quite en vogue with many investors and many newsletter writers to get back into the sport of Zombie Hunting. I’ll confess to combing over the zombies looking for projects that actually make sense if someone partners with them, invests in them, or takes them over.

            Admittedly, sometimes these “Zombie Hunters” do dig up a real turnaround story or find a development pearl, but many of the zombie companies need to be left in the realm of the dead. I will say this though, sometimes when a good project is perceived as crappy or a zombie, but really it is fine but with the wrong image in the marketplace, I’ll give those companies a chance and have experienced some of my largest gains on those kinds of “re-rating events”.

            Lastly, beauty in business, as in life, is in the eye of the beholder, and one man’s trash is another man’s treasure….

            There are some Zombies that did come up with financing lately, and they’ll get a second chance to prove their concept, and if it doesn’t happen this round, then that’s the end of the road for them, so a few of these times are highly motivated to deliver (especially in a rising metals price environment).

            In addition, a number of the properties that many prospect generators hold are locked up with Zombie companies, with no real movement, but a well placed JV, or M&A could light up that royalty or earn-in opportunity with a nice surprise to the upside.

            I will say there is one kind of Zombie that is attractive to me, and those are Zombies that boarder existing mines, a continuation of a trend, a district play, or an area play. These zombies are typically at rock bottom, and if you watch their trading, insider buying/selling, and board of director changes carefully, you can sometimes get in front of takeover situations for a nice spike. Those Zombies can be worth the risk, but they can also be dead money or worse a dilution factory for years……which is extremely risky. Gotta choose any zombie with the most speculative of funds and with the realistic expectations that most really will stay dead, even if they get up and walk around once in awhile. There are a few Zombies though that will eat financing or real drill results, and become a force to be reckoned with.

          Ex,

          I hear you and Matthew talk about Scorpio Gold from time to time and from what I can gather you both seem to like it. From what I can tell its a very small operation with average gold metrics and kind of hard to define as a high quality producer going forward. The great unknown to me is how much genuine “blue sky” and “life of mine” is still available to be exploited on their property claims.

          I would be interested if you could give a few key points as to why you guys like it, or if you have cooled on company. Do you like it going forward or just use it primarily as a trading vehicle.

          Thank you

          V

            Vortex, you are correct about Scorpio. It is a small operation with roughly average economics. In addition, its LOM (life of mine) is quite short at the moment, which is most likely the main reason it is so undervalued relative to its peers.

            It currently trades at .6x book; .19x sales; 1.19x cash flow (according to IB and Morningstar) and has working capital equal to about 85% of its market cap.

            For comparison, Wesdome Gold Mines trades at 2.65x book; 3.81x sales; 23.65x cash flow and has working capital equal to roughly 5% of its market cap.

            So I believe that the market is too focused on Scorpio as a producer and has failed to value it properly for its exploration potential at both Mineral Ridge and Goldwedge -and the good possibility that they will begin mining the Custer target in 2017.

            $10M is not a lot for this kind of potential in a great jurisdiction – especially in a bull market.

            Speaking of jurisdiction, average to high cost U.S. producers have yet to enjoy the advantages of having a weak currency that so many others have. They will soon, in my opinion, and that just adds to the speculative appeal.

            I own more than 1% of the company and was a buyer yesterday.

            Matthew,

            Thanks for the in-puts. I take it you think there is considerably more gold yet to be found on their properties?

            Holy smokes, using Wesdome Gold as a comparison. We could only dream about Scorpio pulling those kinds of numbers in drill results. Unfortunately I don’t own any Wesdome but sure wish I did.

            I’ll continue to conduct more DD on Scorpio as I’m doing on many others and of course follow you’re thoughts as well as others. I’m very close to adding an extensive collection of new near-term producers/explorers to my portfolio.

            Needless to say I’m as excited about the prospects of gold and silver and the resource sector as you and Ex are.

            Thanks

            Hey Vortex,

            Yes, I do like the prospects for Scorpio Gold to outperform their peer group in the “Small Gold Producers” sub-sector (Gold producers doing under 100,000 ounces per year). I expect most of the Small gold producers to outperform the Mid-Tier and Majors as a general rule of thumb, [but of course there are small producers that may not take off and Mid-tiers that may outperform].

            I have a great deal of respect for Peter Hawley as the guy that launched Scorpio Mining, which split into 2 companies:

            1) Scorpio Silver (which became US Silver & Gold during their merger, and is now the company named Americas Silver Corp – one of my favorites in the Silver space for the mid to longer term). It is similar in that it is not the best run or most economic Silver company, but it is one of the more undervalued Silver producers, that has a huge amount of exploration upside.

            2) Scorpio Gold – I view them as being undervalued on many metrics relative to their peers {as Matthew pointed out quite well in his response above}. (Nice Matthew)

            I also believe in their exploration being the upside surprise that the marketplace has not even close to value in their shareprice, not to mention their mill on standby.

            What is crazy to me is when there are dead-beat explorers with moose pasture getting bids for a few marginal drill holes, but then you have small producers with an active mine, and the experience & revenues to develop other targets at secondary exploration projects — but relatively no value factored in.

            There are variables for what are good grades, and depends on the depth, ease of mining, and type of ore for recovery, etc… but generally 1.5 g/t gold to 3 g/t is average these days. You can see the results of some of their drill results below.

            These are why I am excited to see how some of these targets develop.

            –> Paris Target – May 25, 2016 – First-pass drilling in 2016 intersected mineralization in 19 of 24 RC holes collared over a 150 x 450 meter area. Based on a review of the geology and assay results, Paris is not considered a continuation of the Drinkwater trend. No further drilling is currently planned in the Paris target area. **** {So what I like about this is they didn’t knock it out of the park on this target, and they’re willing to stop and move on – but there was still gold at this target that may come into play down the road, but not at current prices, and they have better targets to focus on at present}.

            Goldwedge (This is their other property and it is very prospective for future development & production)

            In 2015, the Company drilled 21 core holes from 6 underground drill stations totalling 4,695 ft (1,431 m). Mineralization of interest (0.03 OPT or 1.0 g/t and greater) was intersected in all 21 underground holes drilled in 2015. Results considered of significance for this deposit (0.10 OPT or 3.3 g/t and greater) were returned in 9 of the 21 holes

            Goldwege Mill Facility
            Scorpio Gold rehabilitated the mill facility and surrounding infrastructure in 2013. In 2014, the Company undertook batch processing of high-grade Mineral Ridge ore on a test basis to optimize the milling circuit for the recovery of coarse gold. In Q1 2015, 1,392 tonnes of Mineral Ridge ore were processed grading on average 8.87 g/t gold. The mill has since been placed on a care and maintenance basis and can be restarted immediately when needed.

            ****So I find it to be a huge advantage for Scorpio Gold to have this rehabilitated and permitted Mill in place and they’ve already got proof of concept that it can process ore. I’m not sure what that is worth, but it is a hell of a lot more than what the market is giving them credit for at present.

            Lastly, let’s talk Peter….

            Peter J. Hawley, BSc, BEng, PGeo
            CEO, Chairman & Director

            “Peter Hawley, founder of Scorpio Mining Corporation, served as CEO of that company from 1998 until November 2010 and is currently a director. He has over 30 years of mining industry experience that spans grassroots exploration through to development and production and has worked extensively with a large number of intermediate and senior mining companies including Teck, Noranda, Placer Dome and Barrick Gold. Mr. Hawley is also highly experienced in private and public company financing and corporate administration.”

            **I’ve noted that Peter was just added to the Board of Directors of Defiance Silver, and that it would be very interesting if Americas Silver were to JV with Defiance on their property and get a partial stake in that project.

            I would just add one thing that there are actually about a dozen small producers, that are undervalued in a similar way as Scorpio Gold. There are about 50 Small producers doing under 100,000 ounces per year, and some are at shocking valuations and they will just absolutely go on a tear if gold gets up above $1400-$1500 over the next 2 years.

            There are also a slew of Development stage companies (over 50) that are at very intriguing valuations and will either get bought out or go into production in the next 2 years. Some of these companies like the Pretiums & Seabridges of the world have taken off, but there are tons that go unnoticed that are making legitimate progress to going into production.

            These are the companies that have my interest and I am starting to build positions in a number of them, because I see them as an area that didn’t get too frothy yet, and stands to have the most torque once the metals add 10% more +.

            The list I am most excited about is the “Development Stage” “Near-Term Producers” and “Advanced Deposit Exploration companies list”. Unfortunately I have not had time to finish pruning that list, but along with the “Small Gold Producers” list, it is one of the areas I see the most upside in. Maybe I can get it together for later in the week or next weekend.

            There are a number of smaller Mid-Tier Producers and Small Producers worth reviewing for now……

            Enjoy!

            Darn – I didn’t graduate a few of the smalls up to mid-tiers on this list (sorry I have about 8 different spreadsheets open that I am trying to consolidate in the 3 lists of Gold producers. So I see a few mistakes already (like Orvana is a Mid tier not a Small, etc….) You get the general idea though, and everyone can do their own due diligence.

            Sorry the list of Mid-Tiers and Small producers posted above is not correct, and I should have double-checked before posting it.

            I had moved Orvana Minerals and Ramelius Resources up to the Mid-Tier list, but forgot to remove them from the Small Producer list.

            Please also graduate Teranga Gold, Torex Gold, Guyana Goldfields, St Barbara LTD, Regis Resources, and Gran Colombia Gold Corp up to the Mid-Tiers. 🙂

            It should also be noted that both Jaguar and Timmins are pushing 90,000+ for 2016 so they are both getting ready to graduate in 2017. 😉

            Maya Gold & Silver should really just be on the Silver Producing list, as they report in Silver Eq. ounces, and their 2nd development project they are working on is polymetallic (lead, zinc, silver, gold), but will likely revolve around Silver equivalent ounces.

            They’re a great little company that I’m a fan of, but they’re getting removed from the Gold list moving forward.

            Rambler Metals is really more Copper than Gold, but I’m leaving it on with the small gold producers as a reminder that they track both.

            Medusa Mining did just over 108,000 ounces for the full year ended in June, and target 110,000+ ounces moving forward, so I guess they need to be graduated to the the Mid-tier group as well.

    McKinney brought up the subject of ‘cost benefit’ in terrorism spending by the Gov’t. Steven Brill has an excellent article this month in Atlantic magazine. We’ve spent a trillion since 911. Hundreds of millions have been wasted. Yet, we’re obviously safer than when we started, but with huge gaps in the effort yet to be filled. Anyone interested should access the article.
