The apartment complex called the incident a "misunderstanding," and has since amended its rules to permit the display of state and country flags.

The problem with opines about precious metals today is that well, that is always the official opinion. I guarantee the banksters vaults are full of the stuff. They need it to back their loans to each other and large corporations. Not one of them could do business without it. The world turns on metal. Every thing is either made of metal or made in a factory made of metal. They know what "Quantative Easing" is leading to.
You just keep buying into paper, metals are reserved for the wealthy. The longer you believe in paper the more metals they can garner for themselves.
Metals depend on their economic usefulness.
And/or things you can "barter":

To SLOW DO -
Yes, I live in the U.S. But point taken. I went back and added "San Diego" to the flag story. By the way, do you know the end of your Avatar name is unreadable in the white stripe?
To Krazysh0t -
I thought the "stupidity and evil" of these three articles would be self-evident. My bad.
CAN'T FLY AMERICAN FLAG IN AMERICA - The guy was a college student, and the apartment complex thought it might offend foreign students staying there. Why? They are IN America, possibly on generous Foreign Student scholarships. If seeing our national flag "offends" them or the complex manager, then they have either hidden and dubious reasons for being in the U.S., and/or seriously conflicting loyalties and probably shouldn't be in the U.S. to begin with.
HILLARY CLINTON'S ADORATION OF SAUL ALINSKY - Her college radicalism has hardened into elitist swagger, but people need to be aware of her core beliefs if she is going to run for President:
SAUL ALINSKY AND "RULES FOR RADICALS"
"True revolutionaries do not flaunt their radicalism, Alinsky taught. They cut their hair, put on suits and infiltrate the system from within. Alinsky viewed revolution as a slow, patient process. The trick was to penetrate existing institutions such as churches, unions and political parties.... Many leftists view Hillary as a sell-out because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues. However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to do and say whatever it takes to gain power."
GOLD IS TARNISHED FOR GOOD - Yes, an opinion piece. BUT it includes a graph and stats, and the bottom line is alarming:
"Gold shined brightly at the beginning of 2014, with bullion prices jumping by about 13% from New Year’s Day until mid-March. But since spring, and particularly since July, gold prices GCZ4, +0.76% have been on the decline. Last week, the precious metal settled near lows not seen since Christmas 2013.
"Now, I know there are gold bugs who like to talk about the death of the dollar. But with other central banks actively debasing their currency and America on the cusp of tightening monetary policy, well, I simply don’t see how we can expect anything but a strong dollar for some time." (The stupidity and evil? All the Doomsday types preaching to get rid of your dollars and buy gold.)
