I met one man, Bourdeau Metelus, who had survived the quake. He had been caught […]

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? Not so, Port au Prince. In fact, other than the […]

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 […]

It’s already taking form in the empiricism so rampant in our military (as well as financial – FATCA) fronts. Before getting into […]
