I drive a lot these days. (Those of you who tuned into TDV Homegrown in time for the recent release of the November issue know why.) So I spend many hours of each day marveling at how inanely restrictive and commonly ignored the government speed limits are.
I am still here, but not for long, as I leave to Mexico City on Sunday night for a Monday interview by satellite with Max Keiser, then off to Miami for one night and then on to St. Kitts for the Liberty Forum conference on the beach with Peter Schiff, Doug Casey and many other greats to help to free some slaves.

As many of our American readers are slowing waking up from their tryptophan, or more like "massive meal with gravy and wine", we thought we might again point out that all that food in front of them this Thanksgiving may also be the best investment to survive The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI).

Unemployment will be a global tipping point in 2014, and America will tip as well. Europe is already panicking about the likelihood of young people rioting in the streets next summer. The 17-nation Eurozone is predicting severe riots due to soaring unemployment, especially among the young. In September, the Eurozone's general unemployment rate was 12.2%; the rate for young workers was 24.1%. According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, youth unemployment is nearly 60% in Greece, 55% in Spain and 40 percent in Italy and Portugal.

Yesterday afternoon Bitcoin broke through the 900 USD mark with so much momentum that it made my ears pop.
I keep a realtime bitcoin price tab open at all times these days. One second the price was bouncing around $880 or so and the next it was over $930. As of this writing the USD price is batting its head against $970, just inches away from $1000. I wonder if by the time this goes to "print" whether $1000 will have been broken...or if those four significant digits will prove to be the barrier off which the Bitcoin price bounces and crashes.

This past Friday was the darkest day in my life, giving proof to my worst fears.
Friday was a cold rainy day in Dallas, and Alex Jones called his listeners to march in a peaceful protest on Dealey Plaza (where JFK was killed) to help fight the powers that be from completely strangling our First Amendment (Free Speech) rights, and I was proud to be among them. Anyone who was not invited by the Mayor, or who disagreed with the official government story about the murder of JFK, was not allowed to enter public property during the government-sponsored event.

Here at The Dollar Vigilante (TDV) we have written for years about The End Of The Monetary System As We Know It (TEOTMSAWKI) or, to put it more bluntly, the coming collapse of the US dollar. Our total body of work on the subject is enough for a book… and will soon be a book entitled “Escape from Amerika”.
