No money is safe anywhere in any form. Period. The only money you can really be sure of not being lost is the money spent. . Otherwise spend a couple thousand on a quality safe from Liberty safe co, and buy an alarm. sell an ounce and a half of gold, and you can get a great one. The safe will weigh close to 1000 pounds, and be bolted to the floor, and is fire proof for an hour. The alarm, which can be purchased with a battery backup, will make enough noise to drive anyone out, knowing the cops ae on their way, and those are the best safes most people can afford to buy, so it wont be pried open or broken into easily. There is your 'safe deposit box' , you're right. I used to store my silver and gold at a bank when I read the contract that said it's at risk of confiscation if the content goes against bank policies. No further details where in it but what when they decide that it's against their policy people should own gold and silver?
All they need to do is use a metals detector set to gold and silver and they know what's inside after 2 minutes.
Professor William Black is a former financial regulator and an expert in white collar crime. According to Professor Black, the financial system is headed for an even bigger collapse. As a major warning sign, Professor Black points to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew's recent complaint about no money for regulation in the recent budget deal. Professor Black says, "Jack Lew is the anti-canary in the coal mine because Lew has been gutting regulation for virtually all of his professional life. . . . Lew is saying, my God we've gone so far we're going to cause the collapse of the system. . . . You know when Jack Lew keels over, you know that carbon monoxide has already killed everybody reasonable." Professor Black goes on to say, "The system is ungovernable . . . It has already largely imploded."

Coast To Coast Am - January 18 2014 - Increasing Brain Power
Guests: Dan Hurley
Award-winning science journalist Dan Hurley discusses how the dogma surrounding IQ scores was shattered in 2008 with the publication of a major study showing that the ability to learn, solve novel problems and get to the heart of things can be significantly increased through training.
In the first hour, Brian Engelman of The New American Media commented on the brutal beating death of homeless man Kelly Thomas at the hands of two police officers.
Supporters of warfare, welfare, and Wonder Woman cheered last week as Congress passed a one trillion dollar "omnibus" appropriation bill. This legislation funds the operations of government for the remainder of the fiscal year. Wonder Woman fans can cheer that buried in the bill was a $10,000 grant for a theater program to explore the comic book heroine.
That is just one of the many outrageous projects buried in this 1,582 page bill. The legislation gives the Department of Education more money to continue nationalizing education via "common core." Also, despite new evidence of Obamacare's failure emerging on an almost daily basis, the Omnibus bill does nothing to roll back this disastrous law.
Even though the Omnibus bill dramatically increases government spending, it passed with the support of many self-described "fiscal conservatives." Those wondering why anyone who opposes increasing spending on programs like common core and Obamacare would vote for the bill, may find an answer in the fact that the legislation increases funding for the "Overseas Continuing Operations" — which is the official name for the war budget — for the first time since 2010. This $85 billion war budget contains $6 billion earmarked for projects benefiting Boeing, Lockheed-Martin, and other big defense contractors.
Ever since "sequestration" went into effect at the beginning of last year, the military-industrial complex's congressional cheering session has complained that sequestration imposed "draconian cuts" on the Pentagon that will "decimate" our military — even though most of the "cuts" were actually reductions in the "projected rate of growth." In fact, under sequestration, defense spending was to increase by 18 percent over ten years, as opposed to growing by 20 percent without sequestration.
Many of the defenders of increased war spending are opponents of welfare, but they are willing to set aside their opposition to increased welfare spending in order to increase warfare spending. They are supported in this position by the lobbyists for the military-industrial complex and the neoconservatives, whose continued influence on foreign policy is mystifying. After all, the neocons were the major promoters of the disastrous military intervention in Iraq.
While many neocons give lip service to limiting domestic spending, their main priority remains protecting high levels of military spending to maintain an interventionist foreign policy. The influence of the neocons provides intellectual justification for politicians to vote for ever-larger military budgets — and break the campaign promises to vote against increases in spending and debt.
Fortunately, in recent years more Americans have recognized that a constant defense of liberty requires opposing both war and welfare. Many of these Americans, especially the younger ones, have joined the intellectual and political movement in favor of limiting government in all areas. This movement presents the most serious challenge the bipartisan welfare-warfare consensus has faced in generations. Hopefully, the influence of this movement will lead to bipartisan deals cutting both welfare and warfare spending.
1. The current money system distributes money from the bottom 90% to the top 10%
Because 97% of the money in the UK is created by banks, someone must pay interest on nearly every pound in the circulation. This interest redistributes money from the bottom 90% of the population to the very top 10%. The bottom 90% of the UK pays more interest to banks that they ever receive from them, which results in a redistribution of income from the bottom 90% of the population to the top 10%. Collectively we pay £165m every day in interest on personal loans alone (not including mortgages), and a total of £213bn a year in interest on all our debts.
2. It transfers money from the real economy to the banks
Businesses are also in a similar situation. The 'real' (non-financial), productive economy needs money to function, but because all money is created as debt, that sector also has to pay interest to the banks in order to function. This means that the real-economy businesses - shops, offices, factories etc -- end up subsidising the banking sector.
3. It transfers money from the rest of the UK to the City of London
Banks pay their staff out of their profits, which in large part comes from the interest they charge on loans. Because most of the high earning bank staff work in the City of London, this results in a geographic transfer of wealth from the UK to those working in the City of London.
4. The instability that the system causes means that temporary and low-paid jobs are insecure
When banks cause a financial crisis it leads to unemployment. It tends to be low-paid and temporary contract workers who are the first to get made redundant first, so that instability in the economy has a bigger effect on those on low incomes with insecure jobs.
5. High house prices increase inequality
When house prices are pushed up by banks creating money, those on low incomes suffer the most. People on low incomes often can't get a mortgage big enough to buy a house, so they don't benefit from the rise in house prices. Meanwhile, those who can get access to mortgages can buy multiple houses for buy-to-let and benefit from artificial inflation in house prices. Younger people also lose out, as the cost of buying their first house swallows an ever larger amount of their income, while older and retired people who own houses benefit. This all increases inequality across different income groups and between the young and old.

International investor Jim Rogers says central banks around the world are arranging deck chairs on the Titanic, but if he had to recommend where to invest in stocks in 2014, two of his top picks would be Japan and China.
Rogers said the global environment of ultra-loose economic policies, characterized by nations that run huge government debts while printing gobs of money, will lead eventually to a massive world hangover.

"When it pops, when this artificial sea of liquidity dries up, it's not going to be fun," he told Reuters TV. "But I don't see any reason why it will stop anytime soon."
In suggesting where an investor could put money in stocks this year, Rogers noted the Japanese stock market is still 70 percent off of its all-time high (while the U.S. is currently hovering around an all-time high), and that a new law in Japan makes it tax-free to invest in stocks.
"I've been investing a long time, and every time a country does that, people invest," Rogers said.
He predicted blue-chip stocks in particular will do well in Japan for the time being.
In emerging markets, Rogers said China is a very attractive choice for equity investments.
Since the Chinese government has said it intends to sink significant resources into cleaning up pollution, railroads and healthcare, he predicted related stocks that focus on those areas will do well.
But what about the backdrop of unfettered government fiscal policies? "It's a good party while it lasts," Rogers said.
If stock markets tumble by 20 percent in the face of monetary tightening, he predicted governments will offer up the same overheated leftovers.
"Then the central banks will get scared. These guys are just academics and bureaucrats. Then they'll start printing money again and the whole thing will get more and more elevated and more artificial." In a weekly commentary, mutual-fund owner John Hussman of the Hussman Funds, a stock market analyst who correctly predicted the 2008 economic meltdown, also said it may be premature to abandon stocks even though central banks are foolish.
"The stock market is hovering in what has a good chance of being seen in hindsight as the complacent lull before a period of steep losses.
"I view (central bank) quantitative easing not as some novel and permanent form of economic and financial levitation, but as a reckless distortion that has no mechanistic relationship with either the economy or stocks. The painful resolution of this distortion, like the dot-com bubble, the technology bubble, and the housing bubble, is yet to unfold."
ET Now caught up with Jim Rogers, Commodity Guru, for his views on precious metals. Excerpts:
ET Now: What is your outlook on precious metals?
Jim Rogers: There are huge shorts that have developed in precious metals as you know. So they are overdue for a rally. We have had a big drop in 2013 and everybody got negative and everybody got short. So we are going to have a rally, though not too much of the rally. I am not ..
Gold has not bottomed and the US Federal Reserve will collapse in the next 10 years, says renowned investor Jim Rogers.
"100 years ago you could not have named the head of most central banks in the world," Rogers told Mineweb. "Now they're all rockstars." Gold and equity markets have increasingly been locked in Fed-watch mode in 2013, obsessing over when or whether chairman Ben Bernanke would taper the bank's vast bond buying scheme.
Rogers however, an ardent free-marketeer, says the market's narrow focus on the Fed reflects the bank's rising and now extreme interference in global markets, propelling the likes of Bernanke in the US and Mario Draghi in Europe to near household name status.
"Everybody knows them," he says, "but that's only a phenomenon of the last 20 years, when central banks have been pumping money into the markets and everybody's singing hallelujah."

“The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is, perhaps, the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banks can in fact inflate, mint and un-mint the modern ledger-entry currency.” Major L L B Angus
The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or so dependent on its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of the people mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system will bear its burdens without complaint and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests.

"Debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages must be foreclosed as rapidly as possible. When, through a process of law, the common people lose their homes they will become more docile and more easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of government, applied by a central power of wealth under control of leading financiers.
This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world.
By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished."
