If You Don’t Work, You Die

From the National Vital Statistics System of the USA, we gather the following information:

Total number of deaths in the US, in the course of the year 2018: 2,839,205.

From World-O-Meters, we gather the following information:

Total coronavirus cases in US, as of March 31, 2020: 211,271.

Total US deaths attributed to coronavirus infection: 4,716 = 2.23% of total cases.

And 4,716 deaths so far in 2020, is only 0.17% of those who died in 2018, of natural causes. (0.17% is less than two tenths of one percent.)

Let’s be very pessimistic and suppose that – 100,000 people are going to die, in the present year of 2020, from coronavirus infection.

100,000/2,839,205 = an increase in the death rate of 3.5%, over deaths registered two years’ ago in the US, from normal causes.

In any war of any significance, in which the US loses 100,000 soldiers and civilians, this loss is taken as just a matter of fact: wars cost lives, and life goes on as usual.

Here are some numbers, from en.wikipedia.org:

World War II 291,557 dead.

Furthermore, from multpl.com we find that the population of the US as of March 1, 2020, is: 329,340,000. So if the US looses 100,000 people to the coronavirus, or even 500,000 individuals – absolutely nothing at all would happen to the United States of America.

However, shutting down all economic activity and sending people to their homes, with instructions to stay there until further notice, is a recipe for


For the following two simple reasons:

1. People remaining in their homes will spend their savings to eat, and when this money runs out, they will either starve or resort to crime, to feed their own. Staying at home means consumption of savings, and when these run out – watch out, America!

2. Companies shutting down and laying-off workers, will be consuming Liquid Capital to remain in existence. When that Liquid Capital runs out, the company is bankrupt and may never operate again. Shutting down economic activity is the equivalent of US and State Governments at war with the productive machinery of the US, something that neither the Nazis nor the Commies were able to achieve!

About admin

Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Jeffrey Bennett, President of Kettle Moraine, Ltd., the parent of Sierra Madre Precious Metals. I have been married for 52 years with two children and four grand-children, a veteran of Viet Nam, student of history (both American and film), and was host for fifteen years of Perspectives on America on the alternative airwaves, covering such subjects as, health and wellness, news, political satire, education and editorial commentary on current events through the teaching of history, and Protecting Your Wealth. In early 2018, I took a several month hiatus to complete some family business but returned to airwaves April 17, 2018). At the age of ten, I sat in a bank-vault in the Citizens Bank of Mukwanago, Wisconsin with my grandfather going through bags of old American Peace dollars, hand-selecting each coin as dated rolls of 20 coins were carefully put together and rolled. Learning of the history of these beautiful pieces of Americana, I asked my grand-father, "Why are we doing this?" to which he replied, "Because someday they are going to do the same thing with the silver in our money that, that (S.O.B.) Roosevelt did with gold in 1933." It took only six-years for his prediction to come to pass at the hands of a disciple of Roosevelt's... and what will a Federal Reserve 'dollar' purchase today - and what will that old 90% Silver Peace Dollar purchase? Although at the age of ten, there was little understanding of the meaning of it all, over the next half-century I became well-versed on the subject matter. During this summer of my education, I began to purchase silver coins as a collector and some small, international gold coins two years later - not an easy feat in the shadow of the Roosevelt confiscatory policies of 1933. Although those policies remained in effect until the mid-1970's, it was not until 1991 that I found that one could make a living providing precious metals and collectible, historic numismatic coins to a willing and concerned clientele. It was also during that year, that I began a relationship with one of the first Trust companies to give the public access to gold and silver as part of an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) - and Kettle Moraine, Ltd., founded in 1995, but have ceased providing service due the the intense change-over of the provider. In November 2011, after a 15 month broadcast on another network, I returned to the airwaves with my then revamped program, Life, Liberty & All That Jazz, and for over a quarter-century, I have been proud to serve the family of listeners of my numerous broadcast programs for physically-held precious metals for investors and collectors alike. On March 23, 2020 I launched my brand new - appropriately named program, The Edge of Darkness on the Republic Broadcasting Network, and thus continue to  remain available to our long time clients and their families. Ah yes - find out what "inter-generational" wealth provision has done for our clients over the past three decades. Don't buy the sizzle of that steak until you understand the cost! In other words, don't buy the bull being dispensed by the 'rare coin' pitchmen until you understand the full story. We, at Sierra Madre Precious Metals, will be proud to serve your needs.
