I mean, seriously. Why not sign the petition? It's worth a try.

This idea was floated yesterday by Eric Dubin at SilverDoctors. If you sign the petition and nothing ever comes of it, you'll have given away about one minute of your life that you won't get back. Otherwise, I don't see much downside to trying.

First, read the petition here: https://thenewsdoctors.com/bart-chilton-resign-and-become-a-whistleblower-open-letter-petition/

And then sign the petition here: https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/bart-chilton-resign-go-public-on-silver-manipulation.html

You'll note that yours truly was signatory #10.

Co-op buy Euroland

Hello Turdville!

Regarding the co-op buying: from euroland there is not much one can do. Except buy individually on the signaled day, I guess.

Turdites from Europe: any ideas?

I noticed that the petition asked for name, email, and even home address. I falsified in order to hide myself a bit. Is this a petition that will be automatically turned over to the Government for a house-to-house search for dissidents in the near future?

Edit: #161

Spying on us

Think about it. I barely have time to digest half of turdites comments and a few other sites I visit.

Heck, imagine the amount of info just in your street/road. Phone calls, tweets, facebook, text messages, email, internet searches, bank transaction, face time. I would not be able to digest just 1 small street, never mind a block.

So just look at the amount of streets and blocks in the world! How many do you think would need to be employed to sift through all that shite? Yes yes, algorithms this and that... bunkum!

List of naughty words which will flag us, to fight terrorism! Bullshit. (oops - said one).

Maybe they can store everything, I actually doubt it. Regardless - their point is to scare you all, to make you think that big brother is watching you and you dare not even sign a petition because you might be placed on their list for special attention.

Ye gods and little fishes, they have already conquered your mind and any thoughts of personal freedom. You are now a victim of terrorism (oops again).

I cannot tell you what to do, I will say though, you are either expecting others to step up to the plate for you or you accept that you live in a gulag with no way out - Identification papers please.

Sign it if you believe in it

Cowering in fear is pathetic. Do you seriously think that doing nothing will secure your future? "Gee Daddy, why didn't you do anything to stop the total banker take-over?" "Well, you see, I was a paranoid freak, and was afraid I'd end up on a list...so I figured if I did nothing, that something good would happen....." There are a lot of heavyweights already in on the PM trade.....Ray Dalio, the largest hedge fund manager in THE WORLD, recommends 10% allocation to precious metals. Do you really think that he is going to end up on a "list"? Kyle Bass? Come on. If you do get harassed, make it public. Doing nothing will get nothing. Oh, and yes, I think things might have been different in the 30's if those that were getting kicked around had pushed back. How did doing nothing work for them?

I signed the petition

Knowing I'm likely going to skin some hide, I still have to make my thoughts known. Or at least I think I do.

I'm appalled at the negative reaction here to the idea of signing the petition. While I understand some peoples hesitation, I still firmly believe that there comes a time when we all simply have to stand for what is right. Otherwise, as one of our founders famously stated, "we must all hang together or assuredly, we shall all hang separately". If this time in our country's history is not such a time, then what will it take for it to become that time?

After all, most likely we are all already on the "watch list" of the NSA by the simple fact of participating in this and other sites on the Internet. Plus, in my case at least, I have committed much more serious transgressions in emails and other Internet activities that would have made the big red light come on in Utah long ago. Hell, I even have a lighted American Flag in my front yard, a government documented reason to be put on a terrorist watch list.

Furthermore, if anyone need additional reason to "stick the old neck out" I would suggest a bit of reading of the plight of the Jews in Germany and other European countries in the years leading up to and during WWII. As came out of that episode, if not now, when?

So, with both hands over my ass, come on folks, man, or woman, up and put some more weight behind that petition.
