The Sound of Rocks Rolling

I love it when Jim spells it out for what it is.  The end of the road for global finance.  Believe it.  You won't need to believe for long.  It's here. It's now. It's what it is.  It's all that there is, and it's all over - bar the soundtrack of a crumbling system. Time... Continue Reading →
