Questions For Bob
You refer to gold and silver coins in your letter (The Bob Livingston Letter, subscription required). What about those of us that have invested in 100 oz. silver bars? How do I fare when the boom is lowered?
I read via “Human Events” e-letter yesterday that on 4/30/13 the Fed will proclaim that the US is now a CASHLESS SOCIETY. Can you comment on the truth of this and what the affects will be on Cash on Hand, people’s investment choices, etc.? Thank you.
I listened to your “Buy Silver” — so, I went and bought a lot silver bullion and look what’s happened! $23.36 on 4/16/13!! I’ve taken a huge loss! I hope you took you own advice and lost your ass too!
Dear Mr. Livingston,
First off, I really enjoy reading your newsletters. Even though the news is really depressing at times. But you need to do some research, planning, and an article on civilians preparing and planning for another civil war.
We as people, and as a society are not prepared for war we have no leaders, no organization, no planning, no targets of opportunity, and only small arms, (no tanks, helicopters, airplanes, jets, etc. etc. etc.) we are out gunned I guess you could say.
But if it comes to war pick up the enemy’s weapons and ammunition, capture the enemy’s weapons, capture anything you can use against them. Anything and everything that can be used. Maybe Scientific Researchers can develop radio frequency jammers for the drones.
I’m reading with alarm about the EU’s actions in Cyprus. Can you foresee a time when the government tries to take our savings or close the banks?
Why are you separating FB (Facebook) and regular posters? Why are they on top and the rest of us peons have to scroll to the bottom to post? Is there something special about FB that you don’t find special about the rest of us?
Is it possible to get a list of all Obama’s executive orders to date and share them online?
Do you recommend Lifelock or any other identity protection program?
I called National Bullion and Currency Depository on Jan 11th to order some of the $5 gold eagles. Jason White took my order. He informed me that they were sold out but I could get the $10 gold eagle for the same price per oz which was $840 for each of the $10 coins. I then put an order in for 6 of the 1/2 oz coins for a total of $5040 + $20.00 S & H. I received my order today, but they must have gotten something screwed up.
What I received was:
||2004 $10 gold eagle proof 70
||2006 $25 gold eagle MS 70
||$25 gold eagle – bullion
|Shipping and handling
I don’t buy numismatic coins but even if I did, their prices are outrageous. I could buy a 2006 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle MS-70 PCGS (First Strike) from APEMX for $999.90. I will call Jason tomorrow to cancel the order. I expect them to arrange to have Fed Ex, UPS or USPS pick this order up from my house and give me full credit of the $4981.00. I would be willing to keep the two, 1/2 oz bullion coins for $840 each and pay the $20.00 S&H. Or what would you suggest? I definitely don’t want the numismatic coins.
I need to know what steps a person could take to sue/force the hand of a state government agency that is not allowing me to obtain identification. This has been keeping me from job interviews, working, renewing/applying professional licenses, renting/buying a home, traveling, banking/using credit/investing, regaining my drivers license and entering buildings/locations that require identification. I’ve been suffering through this identity issue for well over two years now. No lawyer has been helpful in telling me where to start. Most lawyers say I have to get arrested without identification first to even have a possible case. Getting arrested is something I’m not willing to do to resolve this problem. I don’t want that to happen. As things are now I can be taken into custody every time a officer asks me for ID. With the way things are headed in our country, I am in a lot of danger due to various legislation passed or sitting in wait to be signed in to law. There are too many laws that affect my ability to function/live my life so I go nowhere these days and do nothing. If I can’t furnish an ID; merely saying who I am and giving my address along with my SSN might not satisfy their expectation of proof of identity every time there is a encounter. This could mean me going to jail every time I’m asked for proof of identification. It’s getting to the point that I really can’t live a normal life.
