Re: Report from the trenches

I found it hard to believe, also, but the California Nurses' Association website tends to corroborate this report: The California Nurses Association/National Nurses United today called on California Gov. Gavin Newsom and other state officials to sharply escalate steps to get immediately personal pr...

Too late! My bank suspended lobby service! Well... it's safe at least. I'm nowhere close to a rebalance band, years away.
My credit unions closed their lobbies a couple days ago so some of my my PM's are inaccessible. Should have cleaned out the safe deposit boxes last week.

Re: Precious metal coins no longer available

Mom wanted to pick up some gold and I told her to check out JMBullion. She just told me that they were out of almost everything. I went to see for myself and she was right. They look like the toilet paper aisle at Walmart. They've been cleaned out of almost all their inventory and the little left i...

Re: Precious metal coins no longer available

I'm feeling pretty good about that Krugerand I bought yesterday when gold was around 1477. My silver stash... not so much. I know the feeling. I bought a bunch of 10 oz silver bars for spot about 40 days ago. I was bragging to my wife a couple weeks ago about what a great deal I got. Now that purch...

Re: Precious metal coins no longer available

US gold bureau has gold Eagles at normal premiums, or at least that's what they say on their website: https://www.usgoldbureau.com/gold/gold-coins/american-eagle. BTW The Texas Bullion Depository has finally moved into their permanent home in Leander. I made a deposit there last weekend. It's not n...

Re: Precious metal coins no longer available

Just noticed Texas Precious Metals is also out of silver. They are effectively out of business for a while. The CEO, Tarak Saab has posted the following:

Precious metal coins no longer available

I've read the US Mint is completely out of silver eagles. If you can find any silver eagles to buy, online premiums have skyrocketed. Same thing with gold coins. For example, Texas Precious Metals to completely sold out of gold. Absolutely amazing! https://www.texmetals.com/products/gold-coins And y...

Anyone Else Prepping?

I've stocked our cupboards with canned fruit, vegetables, seafood (oysters, clams, salmon, sardines) and canned soup, etc. I'm not worried about stores running out of food - I'm thinking if coronavirus is rampant, it's probably a good idea not to go to the grocery store anymore. I also went to a vet...

Re: Joel Fuhrman, M.D.

Something must have happened to Dr Fuhrman. I remember him being a rather militant vegan. Now he's recommending eating some dairy, fish and red meat?!?!

I guess he's a recovering vegetarian.

No one expects a return to the gold standard... until it happens.
Exactly. I'm sure there isn't a single politician or central banker who wants a return to a gold standard. However, they may not have any other choice. It may well be forced on them.
