-We’re going from for every 3 people working, 1 is retired to for every 1 person working, 3 are not
-Less and less people are becoming self employed due to over regulation
-Elizabeth Warren or Rand Paul for President? If so, they better be wearing a Kevlar vest
-Justifying the veto of the Keystone pipeline
-Profit severed from capital is true taxable income, so how is it we’ve found ourselves reporting our wages?
-We’ve heard that some of the big banks are insolvent. If they are in control, how could this be true? What happened to the money?
-What would be a good maximum percent of one’s IRA portfolio to be invested now into physical metals and coins, including numismatic, assuming the retirement is about 15-20 years away?
-A $100 face value bag of mixed pre-65 quarters, dimes, nickels sells for about $1315 and the “buy back” price is $1180, but the $100 bag of Mercury dimes sells for $1400 with the same low “buy back” price of $1180. What does this mean?
-Where online would Andy recommend to sell coins other than selling them back to his company? He’s mentioned before how he would buy coins back from his customers but how realistic is that if every one of customers would do that, would his company be able to buy them back? Listen closely folks, his answer is loud and very clear

The 11-year-old girl was given a 75 percent chance of survival if she underwent chemotherapy.
But her family chose instead to stop the treatment and visit the Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, a center the state says is run by a man who is not a physician.
In March of 2014, Makayla was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Canadian media says she underwent 11 weeks of chemotherapy at McMaster Children's Hospital in Ontario.
After weeks of treatment, she wrote a letter to her parents, saying "this chemo that I'm on is killing my body and I cannot take it anymore."
Her uncle says, against her doctor's will, her parent took her out of treatment.
While her mother says the family did spend time at the Hippocrates Health Institute, it was not to treat Makayla's cancer.
But Her uncle says, seeking indigenous medicine practiced at Hippocrates was in fact the family's goal, and it was their right to choose.
Canadian media reports the Brant Family and Children's Services investigated the case and decided not to force treatment on Makayla.
Makayla died last month from a stroke. Her parents released a statement saying "Chemotherapy did irreversible damage to her heart and major organs. This was the cause of the stroke."
But an oncologist says Makayla suffered a relapse which led to her death.
