Billionaire Hugo Salinas Price - World May Go Down in Flames - Must Hear

“I think that unless we see legislation, somewhere, that is rational and recognizes that gold and silver are really different forms of money, and that this whole scheme of paper is unworkable, then the world is going to go down in flames.  The only thing that would last will be people’s savings of gold and silver.” 

“But what kind of a world that will be?  I think it will be a very nasty world.  In spite of having gold and silver, that may not be enough to save you.  They’re good things to have, but what we actually need to do is save our civilization and not go down in flames.

Trayvon Martin shooting: It's not George Zimmerman crying for help on 911 recording, 2 experts say " - "Outright Bloody Murder"

As the Trayvon Martin controversy splinters into a debate about self-defense, a central question remains: Who was heard crying for help on a 911 call in the moments before the teen was shot?
A leading expert in the field of forensic voice identification sought to answer that question by analyzing the recordings for the Orlando Sentinel.

His result: It was not George Zimmerman who called for help.

Tom Owen, forensic consultant for Owen Forensic Services LLC and chair emeritus for the American Board of Recorded Evidence, used voice identification software to rule out Zimmerman. Another expert contacted by the Sentinel, utilizing different techniques, came to the same conclusion.

Zimmerman claims self-defense in the shooting and told police he was the one screaming for help. But these experts say the evidence tells a different story.
