'Lawyers, guns, and money' and 'weed, whites, and wine'

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

Andy Hoffman, analyst for the Miles Franklin bullion shop in Minnesota, this week praised GATA for making great progress in exposing the gold price suppression scheme of governments and central banks and, really, the totalitarianism of the financial class that is engulfing the world. Hoffman's commentary is headlined "The GATA Army -- Battle-Tested and Stronger Than Ever" and it's posted at the Miles Franklin Internet site here --


-- but it's mistaken in one big respect.

That is, while we are always gaining adherents, GATA is not stronger than ever. To the contrary, as with nearly everyone else in this God-forsaken sector, these are our Valley Forge days, especially since gold and silver mining companies have agreed to die quietly and the World Gold Council is even cheerleading for the Indian government's plan to paperize and hypothecate all the privately held gold in that country.

We Are Amid the Biggest Financial Bubble in History;
When It Bursts, Bullion Owned in the Safest Way Will Protect Wealth

With GoldCore you can own allocated -- and most importantly -- segregated coins and bars in Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Switzerland, Singapore, and Hong Kong remain extremely safe jurisdictions for storing bullion. Avoid exchange-traded funds and digital gold providers where you are a price taker. Ensure that you are outright legal owner of your bullion. If you do not own segregated bullion that you can visit, inspect, and take delivery of, you are exposed.

Crucial guides to storage in Singapore and Switzerland can be read here:

So as we're ever closer to being broke, this may be as good a day as any to appeal to those who have not already helped us to consider doing so, maybe in the spirit of Warren Zevon, who asked for "lawyers, guns, and money" --


-- or Little Feat's "Willin'" --

I've been kicked by the wind,
Robbed by the sleet,
Had my head stoved in,
But I'm still on my feet
And I'm still -- willin'. ...

-- which Linda Ronstadt may have performed as well as anyone:


We've already got lawyers and don't need any guns or "weed, whites, and wine" -- OK, a little red wine can be encouraging -- but money would be put to good use, even as we'll admit that we're "willin'" to keep at this as best we can whether you help or not.
