Hello from sunny Southern Mexico,

There is lots to talk about this week so let's get right to it!


Earlier this week I walked into TDV's headquarters in Acapulco and the phones (well, Skypes) were ringing off the hook (well, desktops).  A bit surprised, I posited that another big earthquake had destroyed Acapulco and must have been announced as that is usually how we hear about the terrible earthquakes that happen here, because we rarely feel them.

But, as I overheard on the headphones of some of our staff, the conversation seemed to go something like, "That's the last straw!  How do I get out of here?"

Another week flew by and it's Friday again!  This week an angry man from California tells us to get out and don't came back!  A worried Canadian mother asks us if she should pull her kids from school and flee the country... and a gun nut says we are gold nuts!  And much more!  It's action packed, so let's get right to it.

It all began last Sunday as a run-of-the-mill trip to give a couple of talks to an industry association in the States.  I knew the travel would be grueling, but when I have the opportunity to talk about government incursions into liberty, I usually jump at the chance. 

I flew United Airlines (formerly Continental) out of Leon, Mexico, near my home in San Miguel de Allende, and arrived in Houston without incident.  It was when I boarded a United flight to San Francisco that things went south in a hurry.

Don't Seek Education, Seek Knowledge

Many words make me cringe.  “We” and “our”, when not specifically pertaining to the people you directly know or associate with on a personal level, top the list.  Probably third is “education”.

The word, just like so many, has been twisted, turned and co-opted over time.  Just like the word “liberal” used to mean someone almost of anarchist leanings, but now signifies almost the exact opposite: a leftist statist. Or how the word “anarchism” has also been skewed through propaganda to connote the opposite of what it is. Education can mean one of many things depending on who you talk to.

Investors looking for an emerging producer with the capability to put a medium sized gold deposit into production in a relatively politically stable jurisdiction, where costs are reasonable, and without having to dilute shareholders with a gazillion share issue, or bootstrap itself with a project financing, look no further.

The timing is probably good too.

Sabina Gold & Silver published a preliminary economic assessment completed by SRK on the Back River project recently.

The news release stated the following:

Hello from Boston, Massachusetts,

I spent the last week in what I call the free-er state (for more on the Free State Project, click here), New Hampshire at PorcFest.  I say free-er because while thousands of people have moved there and have tried to live completely free the evidence of the criminal state is still all around.
