Sorry for the long period between podcasts. I stated in the previous podcast and show notes that I would be adhering to a schedule of a Tuesday and Friday show. My laptop rendered itself useless a few days after my last episode. I did some shopping on ebay for a new to me laptop. I found one that would fit my needs and bought it. I then went on vacation for a week that was planned on months ago while my new to me laptop was being shipped. I explain some of the problems that I faced and overcame to move forward. I also talk about what is going on with the precious metals market and the stock market. Why is the Republican establishment looking to adopt a gold standard and audit the fed platform at the convention this month? Listen to this episode to hear what I think the reason could be.
