Glad to see people value your blog. In my case, it is the most expensive blog I have ever read because it gives me the intestinal fortitude to buy gold, even at the recent higher prices, and at the expense of some other things I have gone without.

I donated, and hope I can give more in the future. Times are tough for all of us. Best of luck, FOFOA.

Bless You for the generous support.

Ante up folks. FOFOA's product is unique and his wisdom is of a uniquely rare variety.
I'm in for $500.

Hurry and get rid of your Yankee Dollars (FRN's) while they are still worth something. Send them to FOFOA.

Evans-Pritchard Announces Fed Contemplating $5 Trillion QE Expansion

"...Bernanke has now completely cornered himself, and facing a newly collapsing economy, is left with just one recourse: the printing of more, more, more paper."

fofoa, please keep up the good work, I will donate as soon as possible.

GoldSubject said...

The thought of this sublime intellectual having to flip burgers or liquidate some of his gold is absolutely unbearable!

I'll be emailing you to request an absentee ballot :-)

costata said...

It would be a truly sad irony if a man who has/is helping us to protect our wealth had to sacrifice his own to do so.

For those with means that far exceed their needs, as nickz said:
"Ante up folks."

For those with limited means I propose a "Two For One Offer".

Once the ballot comes to an end I think that FOFOA should add up all of the donations under $50 and advise the total, via e-mail, to anyone who wants to participate. We can then try to match that total dollar for dollar. (While they are still worth something.)

Indenture said...

Thanks Costata:

I didn't know the cut off line for donations was $50. Seriously, FOFOA is the only blog I have ever donated to and I was wondering what a 'standard/good' amount should be.

In the Big Picture (for those of us who instinctively know just how important his words have been and the direction he has guided us towards) $50 is an easy number to embrace.

costata said...


I just picked a random number ($50) for calculating the pool that we could try and match dollar-for-dollar at the end of the ballot.

I feel sure FOFOA will appreciate any amount that people can spare according to their means.

I also wanted to encourage anyone who was hesitating to donate because they felt that a small contribution would not make a difference.

Anonymous said...

fofoa I hope that you do not mind small dollar contributions like $10 or something like that.

This is because in your currency $10 may not be much but in my currency they are a lot, and probably for other people from countries like Indonesia etc $10 are really a big amount.

so I hope you don't mind.

I have never donated to a blog of any kind, but I donated to this one, and more is on the way.

Your insight is unique (one blog I read had a comment along the lines of 'people are awaiting the next FOFOA post like the old Sears Roebuck catalogue"). Suffice to say that your voice carries farther and louder than you know... so TESTIFY, BROTHER! Long and loud, and say it proud.
