Rick Perry vs. the D.U.I. D.A. - Corruption at the Lowest Levels

I'm no fan of Rick Perry. But as a resident of Austin, Texas, I am so outraged by the indictment against him that I'd be happy to pick up a placard and protest this insanity. Here's the story in a nutshell, in case you missed it:

As The HUI Turns

Yes, holding the miners has been a bit of a soap opera these past few years. And yes, I still advocate physical metal over paper shares.

Jeez, what a day. A massive raid followed by a rebound based upon unconfirmed reports of actual fighting between Ukrainian and Russian forces. As we head into the weekend and next week, it's nearly impossible to predict what might happen next.

Holy moly. Miss a day, miss a lot. We've got Putin in Crimea and a convoy on its way to Ukraine. What does this mean for gold and silver? Might upcoming events finally push gold back up and through $1320 again?
