But "you can't eat gold and silver..." can't eat digital either FWTW! LOL

But if either goes to zero (unlikely) you still can hold the metal! You still can make shiny things out of it...!

2.91% of 330 million = 9,603,000 people

let's double that, just because i can...19 million people are gonna lose money because they stacked pm's and didn't do what this guys says they should do...

but mostly he spoke about electronic products, so, i'm not really certain what he's saying....


personally, i'm counting on that confiscation thing, under duress of some Emergency Dictate and we're gonna end up with nothing but i'm gonna consider they will claim, first, anything that says United States on it will have to be returned, as it doesn't belong to us, it clearly has 'their name' on it...

"Users on websites in the Google Surveys Publisher Network" - Probably a biased sample not representative of the US population overall, but in which direction I wonder????

Uh, you can TRADE it for food if need be.
You can't eat bullets but folks are storing them and firearms.
Everything has a purpose.

Possession is 99% of the law. YOU own it THEY ( feds) Don't.
Even during FDR folks held out and they were far more patriotic and obedient back then.
They want it back . They come and find it.
It will not be passive.

Anyone that runs a website and has a Google AdSense account can join the Survey network:

Publishers (website owners) can display the survey code on any page of their website(s):

Anyone can commission a survey and request demographic parameters, but it doesn't appear that you can choose specific websites for the survey or topics/categories of websites for the survey:

Bottom line is that these surveys are only capturing feedback from people that have internet connections and visit websites that are participating in the survey network (so it likely excludes poor folk).

Understood. My point is that the above survey results are probably not valid to extrapolate to the population of the US with declarations (or even swags) at that level. The reporting does say "84% of respondents", I get it; but I will bet a dollatr to donuts that the vast majority of readers do not question what that means and assume the results apply to a much wider population - see Buck's analysis aboe for an example. Not pickin on ya Buck, just sayin',

The survey results MAY be accurate for the tgt audience, depending on survey design, sample size (number of repsondents out of the total population of Survey Network Members), and anlytical rigor; but way off for any other population of interest - say US citizens for example. It is fairly common knowldge that surveys can be designed to provide whatever answer the funder of the survey wants. I'm not saying that is what happened with this particular survey but I am very skeptical of most surveys, especially those that result in bold statements. I am also concerned with the validity granted to surveys in general given that the general pouplation (consumers of MSM pablum that read the talking points of the survey results) has little to no appreciation for the statistics that are involved. They believe what they read and make their own assuptions/extrapolations at will - like the good little sheep they have been trained to be. Sorry to be a survey snob but it is a pecadillo of mine.
Whwnever I see/hear reporting that starts w/ "Resultls os a recent survey show..." my starting position is always to deeply discount whatever follows unless appropriate details about the survey are included, and they almost never are.

Rant off...

I'm guessing you didn't click the links provided. The survey was one question with four multiple choice answers to choose from:
Do you own any gold or silver (bullion coins/bars)?
  • I don't own either.
  • I own both gold and silver.
  • I own some silver. No gold though.
  • I own some gold. No silver though.
The surveys (both 2019 and 2020) included 1,500 responses (each) from people who answered the survey. It's not "Survey Network Members" who answered the poll. It's website visitors to websites that are in the Survey Network. There doesn't appear to be any way for us to see what kind of websites (and thus what kind of audience) were participating in the polling.

I did click the links, hence my concerns. The unique set of people who self select to answer survey questions on line are probably not a statistically valid sample from which to draw any conclusions for any population outside of the population described as: "individuals likely to answer survey questions while browsing on-line". If those individuals are the definition of your target audience then it's probably ok to feel good about the results, for your specific use. Any extrapolation of results to individuals outside of that population is most likely statistically invalid.

Seligman said the metals can go to zero on the exchanges while their true values would be much higher than today. You can hold the physical trade the paper or do both.

Probably the yahoos who said they own gold mean the wedding ring in their nose or a earring or necklace.
JMHO.
I think a better question would be, What percentage of Americans own precious metals as a part (say minimum %5) of their portfolio?

Someone want to give us the Cliff's Notes version of that video?

Right from the title screen, the lurid graphics and exclamation marks, tell me this is going to be agitational, not informational. Someone is selling a product or idea that is dubious.

What is this guy's answer? CRYPTO? CASH?

See post #2
Thanky.

I guess I should have seen something like that, coming.

To me it's not even a no-brainer. Paper gold is like paper fiat. USELESS when TSHTF.

To me that's as obvious as the sunrise. I guess, not so much to others...who still believe the magic of certificates, and cannot imagine a world without Rule of Law. I can...Rule of Law has been slowly eroding over the years, and I've been on the politically-weaker side of low-dollar disputes, several times.

The Golden Rule: The guy with the gold, rules.

When something is loaded with EXCLAMATION MARKS! or WEIRD TRICKS headers...I don't even click on it to find out how long it is.

It's lurid clickbait. He's trying to live off the Gurgle machine...the same algorithm that reflexively censors anything factual, true, or non-Woke.

So, no, I didn't give him any money, and didn't expect him to hold any wisdom.

Getting physical delivery is good advice. So is, taking a daily dump, good advice. I don't need TO BE TOLD THIS VITAL INFORMATION! to understand that.

I have to agree with Casey. I'm on youtube overload. Sometimes if you read the video comments you can get a summary of the video

Okay, I just watched this 8 minute talk. There are subtitles that a pretty good transcript. The video content itself looks like someone grabbed random video clips and mashed them together, a lot of them were generic gold & silver porn, some were random price charts, people doodling, people wandering around at Walmart, people looking at piles of money, and a woman looking at her coffee cup. You don't need to watch your screen to hear his speech.

Basically, his points are the same we've heard for years. The market is manipulated. Some of the big players are maybe setting up a trap to squeeze the shorts. Big players and a few countries are draining the exchanges. There are nearly 18x the paper silver versus real silver. If the market were fairly priced, silver would be $100/ounce. I do not know if his numbers are accurate, but the general idea seems right.

This could be a good intro for someone joining the forum, and wants some hints on the basics. For me, it was a replay of the dozens of "To the Moon!" stories I have seen come and go over the years.

OH Hell yeah!
What can be said in 27 words will take up a one hour U-Toob to say.
Mostly bullshitt.

Andrew McGuire is the worst. I always hope Goldbrix will do a summary. I have never managed to stay awake for a whole show. On the other hand Clif High is long winded but I don't mind. I always learn something new from him.
