Senators Introduce Legislation To Remove Tax Burden On Gold And Silver Coins

On June 28, Senators Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) introduced the Sound Money Promotion Act, which would allow legal tender gold and silver coins to be considered in the same manner as United States currency for taxation purposes.

Greece Passes Austerity Measures, Riots Continue

Blood In The Streets

Blood is being spilled in Western democratic cities like Vancouver, Canada, and Athens, Greece. With America’s economy stuck in recession and with the dismal and arrogant leadership provided by President Barack Obama and Congress, it is not hard to imagine similar violence in American cities.

While some investors believe that we are in the middle of a super cycle for commodities and precious metals, others think that there is already too much speculation built into current prices; that we are in a speculative bubble that will have to burst eventually.
