Holiday Jackass


It's a three-day US market holiday weekend. You know what that means! An update from The Golden Jackass himself, Jim Willie.

By now, you know the drill. I ask Jim to pontificate on three primary topics and Jim, of course, never disappoints. For this call, those three topics are:

  1. The renewed and ongoing bull markets for both gold and silver.
  2. Negative interest rates and the end of the debt-based monetary system.
  3. Signals from central bankers that the dollar's days as reserve currency are numbered.

As always, I urge you to check out Jim's Hat Trick Letter service. More details can be found at his website, www.golden-jackass.com.

Have a great weekend but be ready for another wild week ahead.

Great Post billhilly!

I have learned that we can only live in the "today". If I read all the speculations, even on Greg Hunter or Steve Quayle, and believed all the views, I would have tried to avoid their beliefs, and have quit living in the "today".

We are planning a short trip to the Redwoods next week and later a visit to Glacier Park with Sierra Skier. I am looking for some great mom and poppa cafe's along the way and I told my sister that I will grab the wife, behind a giant redwood and give her a big smooch.

My best friends from high school are gone, along with our best friend that we used to vacation with. Cancers, 360 pounds, smoking and the usual things that will plant us early.

We spend lots of time with our two kids and our six grown grandkids, all being healthy. (While I am typing, the wife brought me a bowl of broccoli).

I'll stop here, not wanting to describe those two doors to go through, one having a hot door knob. Jim

Hey Fix ...

Good to see you are still vertical and taking nourishment. It's been a very long dry spell. I was just wondering about you a few days ago, hoping that your holiday from TFMR might be over soon. I'd love to hear what you've been up to ... just pick the venue.

Hi Waxy...

It's really just been a shift in focus for me, away from current events, and more towards invention, customer service, philosophy, natural law, and cycles that go back to prehistory, taking into account how recorded history has been so severely mis- recorded.

I needed time off from speaking my mind, to focus on acquiring more knowledge.

I'm gearing up for a career change, meaning that it'll be somewhat less of a focus on fixing other peoples broken shit, and more towards Public speaking.

Things have never been better, myself and my family are happy and healthy, and I even have the time to restore my old Cadillac Eldorado convertible to like new condition, and take several extended road trips with it.

I'm feeling more productive now then at any point in my life, with a general sense that I'm just getting started.

That's the short version in a nutshell for now, I'll leave you and the gang a considerably more in-depth version somewhere on one of the back pages in a few weeks.

As much as I miss debating philosophical and theological issues with some of my friends here, I realized it was monopolizing not just the time spent composing and editing posts, but it was also monopolizing most of my thoughts during the day, and I realized that I needed to change my focus if I was going to improve my life in any substantial way.

That is now well underway, and if all goes well, you and many others will be hearing from me soon.

Be well.

Mr Fix.

Nice one BillHilly

I am also on the doorway side, not just because of "hope". In fact, I am a very hard scientific person. I once read a study where they measured the body weight of a person (they were taking continuous weight measurements) on a "about to die" patient in a hospital and then looked at the data after the patient's last breath. The data just 15 seconds before and after the last breath, the body weight was EXACTLY the same. Afterwards, ofcourse, the weight starts changing due to decomposition, bacteria etc. etc.

Any ways, in the 15 seconds before and after, what changed? Breath stopped, person died. But weight did not change. What changed was the "living" part of the person went away. WHERE?

This is one of the reasons for my "doorway" belief. And also numerous other, around the world stories about some kid talking about some other person that has died (reincarnation?).

Anyways, here are the keys to life:

Experiences (make every moment good/enjoyable)

Give love (Never expect)

That's it!

Day started well with Max and Willie; ending with Mr Fix back

Hearing from Mr Fix after many months makes my day. Mr Fix today and BillHilly within the last 7 days makes my week

This makes the gold and silver price rise kind of minor

Good to see you two back and opining.

I have long believed that death is only hard on the survivors. Enjoy your time with your dad.
