Bix has an announcement to make about what people say about him, and Bix also has a few good things to say about silver. Here’s the details…

Bix Weir has announced that he has had enough and he isn’t dealing with comments anymore (click link to see announcement):

Comments are now shut off on the RoadtoRoota YouTube Channel. No room in my world for vile comments or vile people so all the trolls are going to have to go somewhere else until further notice. Bix

Now, people say, “Half Dollar, you’re too hard on Bix. What’s your problem with him?”.

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: It’s a package deal. It’s like macaroni-n-cheese. You can’t have macaroni-n-cheese if all you have is some pasta and no cheese.

You see, the U.S. Constitution requires a bi-metallic gold and silver standard, not a bi-metallic gold or silver standard.

So you can’t pick and choose.

It’s a package deal.

So if it seems like I’m hard on him, well, that’s because he is picking and choosing.

Imagine having a son and a daughter – any good parent would not pick and choose one over the other, right?

You don’t have a son or a daughter, so they are both of equal weighting.

And since Bix is so anti-gold now, almost to an extreme as shown in hisĀ praising God that “gold is dead”, it is a shame to see the unwillingness to advocate for the U.S. Constitution in its entirety when he did exactly that before by advocating for both gold and silver, and rightly so.

It’s the right thing to do, it’s correct, and it’s just.

But I digress.

I have decided to do a write up on Bix’s latest video, because it’s about silver, and to appease readers and others who may want this information, I’ll just ignore the anti-gold stance for now.

Besides, my guiding principles in presenting gold, silver and finance news is to inform, educate, and entertain, in that order, and there are some new stackers who may not know some of the reasons for “why stack silver”?

Now this is not the be-all end-all, all-inclusive list of the reasons why people should stack, but it’s a good place to start, or to learn a reason or two you might not have known before.

So without further ado, here’s Bix giving 10 reasons to buy a bunch of silver right now:

Interestingly, I noticed the comments are actually turned on in that video.

I guess it’s also okay to pick and choose when and where one does and does not receive criticism?

That said, the timing sure is right.

See my SD Outlook for this week if you haven’t already.

Last July, silver began a rally that took the price over 20% higher in the short-run.

A 20% rise in the price of silver from the top end of our current range would put silver over $20, and a rise in price like that would bring some renewed interest back into the sector.

All of which is much needed.

What we’ve seen living though the “sideways channel of pure agony” is that there’s not much room to the downside in price, but there is a ton of room to the upside.

And that move is coming, either after the rate hike, which would be expected, or before the rate hike in a front-running of the Fed.

And if the latter happens, the silver price will take off sooner than later.

Stack accordingly…
