Thumbs up GATA asks for donations

I think GATA is a good organization. They are working hard for the benefit of all of us PMBUGs. They are currently asking for donations. I´ve given them some money before and I will do this again soon:
Quote :
If you think that our accomplishments for 2011 were valuable, please consider helping us financially in 2012, especially if you haven't contributed financially before. We really shouldn't keep going back to the same loyal friends.
If you're an investor in mining companies, please contact their investor relations people and ask them to help us too. This is asking a lot, as mining companies are so vulnerable to the enemies of free markets in the monetary metals -- governments, which control mine licenses and enforce environmental regulations, and big banks and investment houses, which are both the agents of central banking and the main providers of capital for mine construction, mining being the most capital-intensive industry. But if we don't achieve free markets in the monetary metals, the industry that mines those metals will have no future, and it will die along with democracy and free markets.
This still seems to us to be a great struggle -- a struggle determining the value of all capital, labor, goods, and services in the world, a struggle over whether those things are to be valued in free markets in which everyone can participate, the democratic way, or by a few central bankers conspiring in secret, the totalitarian way.
That is, though it may not be fully perceived yet, at stake here is nothing less than the whole world.
If you're inclined to help, please visit here for the necessary information:

And if you do help, please let us know your e-mail address to make it easier for us to acknowledge your generosity. We won't share your address with anyone, and the U.S. government has it already:

Thanks. I'm tapped out at the moment, but will definitely be supporting them when I can.

I suppose that's why he never answered my email asking for some clarification on the COMEX delivery issue.

Bad news

GATA board member Adrian Douglas dies
Submitted by cpowell on Fri, 2013-01-18 18:37. Section: Daily Dispatches

Dear Friend of GATA and Gold:

GATA Board of Directors member Adrian Douglas, whose statistical research documented gold and silver market rigging and whose testimony to the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission in March 2010 pushed the issue onto the national stage, died Thursday at home in Arizona after heroically battling cancer for almost two years.

Douglas' contributions in support of fair and transparent markets and limited and accountable government were profound and perhaps best exemplified by these reports posted at GATA's Internet site and his own, MarketForceAnalysis.com:

GATA hopes to publish obituary and funeral information soon and will rededicate itself to the ideals we shared.
