Approaching PAP (Port au Prince Airport), the view out the window wasn’t quite what I expected. You know how when you fly into just about any major city airport, the buildings around the airport tend to be nice, inviting and otherwise business and/or tourist oriented?
This is why I was in Haiti. It was through Jean Rony’s pursuit to get aid for his people that I met him. But that’s a part of the story that will have to wait. I will say that we’ve become good friends and through these efforts he was able to come to the US for a couple of weeks last spring. More on that later.

Jean Rony Toussaint grew up on Chien Content (Happy Dog). You can see him here at his childhood home, where his parents still live. We met his father (Dezil Toussaint) working out in the field as we walked across Happy Dog. Before us stood a man bent from decades of working the land and full […]

The breeze coming over the mountaintop felt wonderfully refreshing after days and nights sweating in the warm humidity in Anse a Galets and the slopes above her. The channel between La Gonâve and the mainland spread out beyond the harbor below us, hazy though beautiful in the midday sun. La Gonâve, the little island off […]
Greetings Regular Joes, Just a quick comment about the new articles coming out. For the past couple of years I’ve been dong various jobs, writing for precious metals, internationalization and the Chile ambassador for EscapeArtist (which became a disaster). Now I’m posting my content on Steemit as @anotherjoe. You can find my blog here. I’ll […]
Gold is money, right? I mean, while we’re all constantly bombarded with the idea that these funky pieces of paper from THE state approved printer are money, the fact is that they are not. They’re currency, sure. But they’re fiat currency = a centrally controlled and state enforced monopolistic ponzi scheme. Fiat currency does not […]
Greetings Regular Joes, As a new year begins, I’ve started to take up pen again to post a few updates. It won’t be the regular daily updates I shared when I first started, but will be more often than it has been over the past year. For awhile, all I did was let articles that […]
Greetings Regular Joes, It’s been a while since I’ve posted. Life has been interesting and taken me down some paths I couldn’t have foreseen. All of them continue to have me pondering my options for the future, and I continue to desire to provide for my growing family of grandchildren. Number five is on the […]

If the CFTC discovered that the rigging of the monetary metals markets is essentially government policy, being conducted through intermediaries, then it would not be able to act against government agents. By federal law, the Gold Exchange Act of 1934 specifically authorizes the US government to rig not only the gold market, but to rig […]

Greetings Regular Joes, Many in the US think that a Cyprus-like event could not happen here. There is a sense of arrogant American invulnerability that leads to a haughtiness that will eventually be our undoing. It’s already taking form in the empiricism so rampant in our military (as well as financial – FATCA) fronts. Before getting into […]

Today we have a thought provoking article from one of our favorite gold dealers, the Hard Assets Alliance. The fact that we’re members obviously is one reason that it’s one of our favorites. But we seriously investigated what this organization stands for, what it does and what it offers the customer before putting in our […]

Rachel greeted the woman at the table and remembers her being “very pretty” and “probably in her mid-20s.” “She seemed a bit shy, but she smiled as I greeted her.” Rachel served her a drink, took her order, and made some small talk about how the woman’s baby was beautiful and seemed so peaceful as […]
