Should the US be spending more money on wars not directly affecting the US? Is there perhaps another reason for this expenditure?

Most of the funds ‘given’ to foreign countries never leave the US. They are ‘spent’ in the US on/in defense (another misnomer) contractors. So it is a direct subsidy to the manufacturers of war equipment. This supply stretches from a bandage to an F35. 

Currency leaving the US suddenly cannot be tracked. I wonder why and wonder where it goes.

Supported countries are charged for the equipment and now owe the US the amount unless it is specifically donated. I am sure you understand the hold this maintains over the country ‘borrowing’ the funds for the equipment.

How much conflict would be reduced if the military, industrial, political, banking complex were not involved in war generation activity. As it stands now the monetary advantages to the complex of having war are monumental.

What if countries did not antagonize one another?

I believe most people would prefer to live in peace with their neighbors.

If people had real control of their governments, instead of the government controlling the people, (which is becoming more evident by the day), we would have much less conflict. Perhaps the politicians, bankers, weapons manufacturers, should be placed in the infantry going door to door in battle. That may concentrate their minds on the reality of war and damage and heartache to real families.

If we want to have freedom and live in peace, we should choose politicians and policies that ensure and encourage that. Has the time arrived to change who we allow to not only make war, but to run our lives to the point of injecting us with poisons mandatorily?

What happened to freedom of choice?

Proper, original, understanding of the bill of rights is essential.

Gold’s low of the week was $2,302.00 and the high was $2,365.00, now trading at around $2,343.00.

  • The monthly chart for Gold is a hold. We bought it at $1,800.00 and have held it to date. It looks a little overbought here but the indicators are mainly positive. (Chart below).
  • The weekly chart remains a hold.  Looking overbought but no sell yet.
  • The daily chart is a hold. Price is looking overbought but all indicators are positive so we hold.

The low for Silver this week was $26.85 and the high was $28.52, trading around $28.07 at present.

  • Silver on the monthly chart indicates a hold. It needs to break $30.35 then $50.00.
  • The silver weekly chart is a hold. We bought it at $24.00. I would like to see it break out of its long-term trading high of around $28.60 which it has now touched. 
  • The silver daily chart is a buy, looking a little overbought but it has broken out of the long-term trading area. If it holds above $28.00 that is a great sign.
