News From The American Redoubt:


Nine Maps That Show Where Americans Commit Crime. (And, once again, The American Redoubt shines.)

Not just for Montanans: There is a company in Missoula, Montana called Montana Rarities. For many years they have offered a Monthly Silver Purchase Plan.

This is particularly advantageous for anyone who generally generates a positive PayPal balance, monthly. (For example, anyone who runs a home-based mailorder business, or any professionals who accept PayPal for their payments.) And, BTW, Dollar cost averaging is a proven winning strategy.
