You Can’t Eat Gold And Silver!

In the event that a major crisis or emergency strikes the United States, you are not going to be able to eat your gold and silver.  If we get into a situation where supermarkets get cleaned out and food supplies get very tight, you are going to wish that you had stored some things away for your family.
When a real crisis arrives, priorities change very rapidly.  When you realize that you can’t feed your family, the need for basic supplies become extremely important.
Now don’t get me wrong – I am a big proponent of gold and silver.  I believe that they are both going to multiply in price during the years ahead.  I particularly love silver for a couple of reasons.  Unlike gold, silver is used in thousands upon thousands of different consumer products, so the physical supply is constantly diminishing.  And historically, silver comes out of the ground at about a 10 to 1 ratio compared to gold, but right now the price of gold is about 65 times the price of silver.  At some point there is going to be a massive adjustment there.
But if you just rely on accumulating gold and silver and you never store up any food as well, you could end up deeply regretting that choice someday.

From End of the American Dream:

If things get bad enough, people are not going to want to trade you their precious food no matter how much gold and silver you may have.

When a real crisis arrives, priorities change very rapidly.  When you realize that you can’t feed your family, the need for basic supplies become extremely important.  Just check out what is happening in Venezuela right now

Alvaro Villarueda starts his morning the same way every day — putting in a call to his friend who has a friend who works at a Caracas, Venezuela, supermarket.

Today, he’s looking for sugar, and he’s asking his friend if he knows if any shipments have arrived. As he talks on the phone, his wife Lisbeth Nello, is in the kitchen.

There are 10 mouths to feed every day in this family — five of them children. The two youngest are still in diapers.

“The things that are the scarcest are actually what we need the most,” Nello says. “Flour, cooking oil, butter, milk, diapers. I spent last week hunting for diapers everywhere. The situation is really tough for basic goods.”

And the truth is that what is happening in Venezuela is just a very small preview of what is going to happen in much of the world during the years ahead.

In such an environment, people become extremely desperate, and desperate people do desperate things.

That is why self-defense needs to be another high priority for preppers.  When desperate people in search of supplies get desperate enough to break into your home, things can get Medieval very rapidly.

For example, one homeowner in Detroit was recently forced to use a hammer to confront a man that had broken into his home late at night…

Police say an elderly man fended off a home intruder by hitting him on the head with a hammer.

On Sunday, March 9, 82-year-old George Bradford was asleep when he was woken up by the screams of his daughter and granddaughter.

Someone had broken into their house through a basement window.

“I could hear him walking up the stairs. … I had my choice to get ready,” Bradford tells FOX 2′s Andrea Isom. He says he went into the kitchen and got a hammer from the drawer.

Bradford says he asked the intruder to leave but he wouldn’t so that’s when Bradford says he “let him have it.”

Could something similar happen to you and your family when things start really getting crazy out there?

That is something to think about.

And even without a major emergency, food supplies in this country are already starting to get tighter.

The size of the U.S. cattle herd has been getting smaller for seven years in a row, and it is now the smallest size that it has been since 1951.

But back in 1951, the size of the U.S. population was less than half of what it is today.

A few days ago, we learned that during the month of February the price of beef increased at the fastest pace since November 2003, and it is now at a new all-time record high.

Earlier today, one of my readers sent me the following photo.  It shows a price of $24.32 for 0.695 pounds of beef tenderloin steak.  This isn’t even prime rib…

And don’t think that you are just going to switch to pork either.  A highly contagious virus known as “Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus” has killed more than 4 million pigs in the United States since last May, and it continues to spread rapidly.  Experts acknowledge that this is going to drive up pork prices significantly as well.

In addition, the crippling California drought threatens to drive fruit and vegetable prices up to unprecedented levels.  Below, I have posted a recent video news report about the drought.  As you will notice, in this clip they use the term “Dust Bowl” to describe what many farmers fear may be happening…

So now is the time to get prepared while food prices are still relatively low.

They certainly aren’t going to go any lower than they are now.

To some, this type of talk is “gloom and doom”, but I do not believe that is the case at all.  I believe that there is great hope in understanding what is happening and in getting prepared.

These sentiments were echoed by a Canadian prepper named Daisy Luther in one of her recent articles…

Preparedness: It means that whatever may come, you intend to not only grimly survive, but to thrive. It means that you foresee a day when the imminent threat, whatever that may be, diminishes, and you will rebuild. It means that you have taken responsibility for yourself and your family, and that you will not be forced to rely on others. It means that your mind is focused on life itself, not some imaginary life of some reality star that actually has no grasp on reality whatsoever. You have chosen not to be misguided by the lies that the media uses to pacify you.

Preparing yourself is the most optimistic and hopeful thing you can do in a world that would prefer to choose immediate gratification over a firm grasp on reality. Readying yourself to deal with whatever might happen is a joyful act, an expression of gratitude to the Creator, peace made tangible, and the personification of faith itself.

  1. One way I prep food wise is I store dried beans, rice, seeds and legumes. Many can be sprouted with only water and sprouts are one of the richest stores of live, vitamin rich nourishment that you can eat. Raisins are also a good dried food that store well. These foods are cheap, and have a shelf life of years when sealed in airtight containers. The volume of these foods increase after cooking or sprouting so less storage space is taken per meal. In a real pinch, soaking dried beans for a couple of days makes them edible even without heat to cook them. Rolled oats are also a great item for food prep again since water is all that’s needed.
     
    Beans of all kinds, lentils, garbanzos, rice, oatmeal and raisins are an inexpensive insurance policy and can get you through tough times to be sure.

  2. I spent some time in Brazil during the 1990′s when they were experiencing 200% and higher hyperinflation.  When everyone got paid they would go to the bank and get cash and head to the stores.  What they didn’t spend they put into a stable currency like dollars or British pounds.  While there were some shortages I don’t remember seeing any bread lines or waiting for food from people that held dollars or pounds.  Instead there was a black market where everyone would pay a premium for those dollars.  If you had dollars you got to the front of line if you know what I mean.
    Based on what I viewed in Brazil, it’s my guess that those people holding dollars or silver/gold in Venezuela are the first ones that will get food via the gray or black market.  Then whatever is left ends up on the store shelves.
    Also, didn’t Venezuela fix prices which is part of the problem?
     

    • There will always be commerce and those with real money will be able to purchase what they need.  You need your food prep in case commerce temporarily shuts down as in the case of a hurricane, a flood, or a blackout. The curve ball is, from what I’ve read, a national powergrid failure could last for months.

    • The problem is that most of the rest of the world, especially countries like Venezuela, Agentina, and Brazil who experience massive currency disruptions on a fairly regular basis (thanks to the IMF), have a large black market in place PRECEDING a worst-case scenario; it’s not just a necessity for tail risk, but for daily life. There’s black market dealers for grains, meat, vegetables, international currencies, metals, and now, yes, even BitCoin. America has an active black market for drugs, knock-off Rolexes, and the occasional pirated Blu-Ray disc. Not much else. Certainly not the necessities for survival.

      Take the Soviet Union for example. “Reaganomics” and “Star Wars” didn’t end the bloated empire; the poor decisions of their oligarchs (central planning, being drawn into the Afghan war) coupled with the active development of a black market by its citizens did. People in the 70s in the Soviet Union saw that things were going south and took matters into their own hands. We, on the other hand, are further along in this process than they were, and most Americans don’t even recognize there’s a problem. All I’m trying to say is that, while black markets may spring up in some parts of the country, the vast majority here in America will be completely disrupted from the supply chain with no means of replentishing it.

      Be prepared, folks. This ain’t the 1930s, your neighbors might not help you hunt crows and opossums to feed your kids.

      A very good point, UD.  When an emergency comes, it is unlikely to come at a convenient time.  It is even less likely to announce that it is coming beforehand.  There are any number of possible SHTF scenarios and they can last from a few days to weeks to months and even to years.  The Great Depression lasted for over a decade and many believe that the coming financial collapse will be a lot worse than that.  It very well could be.  Because of this, we cannot know ahead of time how much prepping is enough.  Some is good, more is better, and LOTS is best of all.  But even then, we have NO guarantee that what we have done will be sufficient.  While that may be a little depressing, it is also a call to action.  Some of the most important things we can have are food, water, water purification, personal protection, seeds, and some space in which to grow our own food for an extended time period.  During an extended SHTF scenario, green grass and ornamental trees and shrubs around homes will give way to green beans, tomatoes, corn, fruit, and anything else that people can eat.  We won’t be able to afford the luxury of growing inedible crops just because they look pretty.  My wife will claim that her roses are a must, however, and in the interest of family peace, I will agree with that.  :-)
       

  3. I’m a firm believer in Stacking the essentials. I have over a years supply of food for the wee woman and I including dried milk and a bunch of other sundries.
    I still buy something every month outside of PM’s to my survival position. Just bought a bunch of Wise fruit and sauces and boy are they are delicious (yep I always sample the product, Lol) also bought me a little survival AR 7 .22 rifle for the small game that I may need. ( I’m going to do a Recliner Report on that in the near future)
    Anyway as always Keep Stacking EVERYTHING

    • Good choice on that .22 rifle, Charlie.  The little AR7 is one of the better ones out there.  Now, if you can just find some ammo for it!  Don’t know how it is in your neck of the woods but up here in the NW it is scarce as hen’s teeth and frog fur.  lol  Used to be that CCI MiniMag .22LR ammo was cheap and very abundant.  No month went by without someone having a sale on it somewhere in town.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw a 100 round box of CCI .22 ammo.  It’s been a while… 2 years at least.  :-/

      That’s strange. Here in France we have a lot of shortages, sometimes guns, but especially mags (a nightmare, hopefully I have friend…) but for ammo it’s OK.
      Just ordered and received 5k CCI minimags last week. I used them for my Mossberg 802, waiting for have a M&P15-22 and Walther P22 (legal delay)

    • @MaxSilver
       
      It’s more than strange, Max, it is bizarre.  The US and other countries produce BILLIONS of .22-LR rounds every year.  We ought to be hip deep in them and they ought to be cheap.  But neither of those things are happening.  I suspect skulduggery of some kind is afoot.
       
      Thanks for posting your situation in France.  I never think of France as a place where shooting is possible.  I know that it is very difficult to shoot in the UK… unless you happen to meet their very strict requirements.  Posts like yours open up our minds to new ideas and that is a very good and welcome thing.  :-)
       
      “Just ordered and received 5k CCI minimags last week.”
       
      ARRGGHHHH!  X-p
       
      Glad to hear that you can do this.  Sure wish that I could.  The last time I saw a 5,000 round case of .22-LR ammo, it was priced at about $650 US.  Looks as if the days of 5 cent .22 rounds is over and done.  :-(
       

    • Shooting is not difficult in France if you follow the legal requirements. I just started looking for that last year end.  I enrolled in club in Juanuary this year. Outside a club it’s impossible. Club are no profit organisations, linked to the National Federation. It’s very “sporting and competition” oriented, don’t tell you also thinking about personal defence. After 1 month and a medical examination, I was allowed to buy a bolt action 22lr carabine (I don’t know how we say in English 1 shot manual carabine, not semiauto). So I bought the mossberg 802 that I like very much. I have a very good coach, thanks AG.
      During 6 months nothing more, no pistol, no semi auto carabine, but anyway it’s a nice start after 15 years without a firearm in hands. After 6 month we can buy anything if 1 – the club gives the green light 2 – the medical examination is OK – 3 the county department gives his green light (no bad record like drug, alcool, spy troubles etc…).
      So next summer I will have a M&P15-22, a Walther P 22 and a Glock 26. Why I mostly choose 22 lr is that we are not limited with ammo stack and buying, for all the others calibers we are limited to 1000/firearm/year. With 22lr I can practice without counting (the price is also in consideration)
      I paid 420 € for 5k CCI minimag incl shipping that is approx 580 Us$

      Here it is :)

  4. @PB, 
    Ah yes, I remember Rio in 87.  The country was going to hell.  Not going to describe what a tube of racquetballs, or a 1.75 of Chevas Regal would bring.  Barter will be king.  We need to rely less on debit cards and use cash more to obtain the good pennies (pre-82) and nickels.  Part of our preps are pre-65 dimes, over 4K.  Stack while the getting is good, it will not get much better.

    • You mention junk dimes, I believe they will play a huge role in barter if it comes to that so it’s a very good idea to have a nice allotment of those. I personally do not think we are going to end up in a “Mad Max” type of scenario but I do believe that the standard of living for most Americans is going to degrade significantly, especially for those who are not prepared. But I do not think that we will see empty store shelves and be forced to live off of what we grow in our gardens. The US Dollar will still be worth something to other countries because their currencies are even more worse off than ours is. Yes, we are still the prettiest ugly girl at the dance for now.
       
      With that in mind I was visiting a buddy of mine down in an affluent part of Miami the other day. Now I make a pretty good living but the standard of living I witnessed down there was almost beyond comprehension. It makes me wonder if the people paying $3,500 a month to rent a condo on the beach have any idea what is coming down the pike. Do they even care? I mean it seems to me that some folks are doing so well in the current paradigm that they wouldn’t spend one minute researching what is really going on behind the curtain. 

    • @gogetter1132
       
      “Yes, we are still the prettiest ugly girl at the dance for now.”
       
      Indeed… and the operative term is, “for now”.  This can and likely will change and when it does it will be the greatest cultural shock this country has ever faced, IMO.
       
      “I personally do not think we are going to end up in a “Mad Max” type of scenario but I do believe that the standard of living for most Americans is going to degrade significantly, especially for those who are not prepared.”
       
      Well, we all certainly hope that “Mad Max” doesn’t describe our future but that IS one possibility.  It seems a long shot, for sure, but it sure isn’t impossible.  Consider that any SHTF scenario is likely to play out in stages and that the early 1-2 stages will likely be VERY ugly, especially in the large cities.  It will improve with falling population density and with the land’s rising capacity to support lower volumes of human life in a subsistence farming environment.
       
      “But I do not think that we will see empty store shelves and be forced to live off of what we grow in our gardens.”
       
      Respectfully, I will have to disagree with this.  Not that it is guaranteed but it seems a lot more likely than some of the things for which people prep.  As we have seen in MANY previous disasters, one of the FIRST things that happens is that people swarm like locusts to the stores and clean off the shelves… and usually at the very last minute.  This happens time after time when an area knows it is about to be hit by a tornado, flooding, or a hurricane.  Just imagine how much worse this could be once people realize that they are not merely grabbing up enough food for a week but for several weeks or even months.  In spite of this swarming tendency, do any of these people prep AFTER the disaster has run its course?  Of course not!  They do the same dumb things all over again when the next storm comes.  :-/
       
      “The US Dollar will still be worth something to other countries because their currencies are even more worse off than ours is.”
       
      An attorney would call this line of thought, “assuming facts not in evidence”.  We assume that the US dollar will have value mainly because it always has.  This is an example of “normalcy bias”.  What is the plan if this is NOT the case?  What if the USD crashes and dies an ugly death like the Zimbabwe dollar?  I would agree that this is a long shot but it also is not impossible.  Because it is not impossible, some amount of time and resources should be directed towards addressing it.
       
      I try to prep the most for that which seems the most likely and then prep less for those things that seem less likely but still possible.  This is a pretty good way of assigning resources and prioritizing a reasonable response to a disaster of unknown timing, severity, and duration.  IMO, an economic collapse and the resulting civil unrest that accompanies it seem not only possible but likely, given the quality of “leadership” we now have and the corners they have painted themselves (and us!) into.  Powerful storms and earthquakes are also of moderate risk and receive some resources.  War?  Yes, another possibility.  Plague?  Possible but unlikely unless as an act of war… and difficult to plan for, no doubt.  
       
      But the basics of prepping are very similar no matter the disaster and involve having what one needs to live for an extended time period without assistance from others.  Home heating, boiling water, cooking food, self-defense, and decent lighting are also issues that need to be addressed.
       

  5. Noticed last week, Ground Chuck was $ 5.19/lb at Kroger.  Before I left the meat case, one of the butchers brought out some GC discounted to $ 3.58.  Bought a half dozen, put in the freezer that day.  Commented to the butcher if he ever thought he would live to see the day of $ 5.19 Ground Chuck; he just shook his head.  The following week, another chain store had $ 3.98 Ground Round, and I have known this butcher almost 20 years.  Bought 12 lbs. for burgers, tacos, chili, etc.  Like everyone here, we only buy on sale.  It all adds up.

    • SheepDog   we carnivores seek meat like a heat seek missile.   MaryB mentioned that she saw a 3% rise in beef prices last month.  It is actually closer to 5% for us west coasties.   The drought in Kleptifornia is epic and going to destroy the cattle industry for a few years.   Prices will rachet upwards by double digits
      Hamburger helper?  Yes—buy a large freezer and stock it to the max. Better yet, buy a butcher shop, make some serious dinero and eat beef for free.  Buy a gas station and fill your car for free.  Roadkill and hunting fill in the gaps.  

  6. food inflation is annualized at 19% in the USA.  Frontrunning inflation by stacking and storing the basics—no, we are not going to be eating high on the hog—beans, rice, honey, salt, sugar, dried spices, tumeric, garlic, baking soda, yeast, wheat. Low rent vittles are just fine. Lots of paper goods too
    Use those great 5 gallon pails
     Nearly airproof and water proof.  A little dessicant and O2 remover and you are set.
    Water, water and more water.  Filters  Lifestraw, Katdyn, Berkey or home made.
    You do NOT want to in the press of crowds ravening to buy the last roll of TP, flat of water and can of soup.
    If there is a local or ragional shutdown and how many have we seen in Banks, ATMs, debit cards, gas, water, power, food n the last 3 years
    1.  You don’t want to be standing in a line with people who didn’t prep.  Tempers flare. you get trashed. No soup for you.
    FEMA is not an option
    2.  Flash mobs trying to get the latest TV on Black Friday will be nothing if the ETB system goes down
    3.  You do not want to be anywhere near a flash mob when nothing works and there’s nothing on the shelves
     
    Like Selco says
    “You don’t need to be a hero.  You need to survive’
    Heroes die painful deaths.  Do not let that be your fate
    And stock any form of illumination and fuel.  True blackouts and darkness provoke real fear. Your ability to think critically in total darkness drops to near zero.
    Be fanatic about having lots of flashlights, LED lamps, matches, lighters, and propane canisters  Batteries and solar generators, small or large are a great addition to the stocks
    Think in three’s
    You live 3 minutes without air
    You live 3 days without water
    You live 3 weeks without food
    You live 3 months without hope.
    The Good Book and good friends are your support system in the long pull.

    • Very well said, AG.  I agree.  Adding even a bit of solar energy would be good too.  Being able to recharge batteries could well be a critical prep.  If one has enough to run a small refrigerator, that could be an incredible bonus in hard times.  Storing perishable foods for days instead of hours could be extremely useful.  Having a cold place to store perishable meds could also be a life-saver.
       
      Another aspect of good prepping is to have some way of preserving fresh food for longer than a week or so.  Drying and canning come to mind.  There are plans on-line for building a cheap but effective solar dehydrator.  This could be a very handy thing to have in an extended emergency and can stretch food storage times from days to months.
       
      “Lots of paper goods too”
       
      Indeed so… and this is paper that even MaryB can love.  ;-)
       

    • @ Ed_b
      My option is to add a second deep freeze on the home. Can store frozen meet, vegetables and others for months. During normal times, can buy food during sales.
      The problem is power supply. I’m looking for a small gasoline generator (1 or 2 kW)

    • @MaxSilver
       
      I agree, Max, and we have a freezer in our garage for just that purpose.  You’re right about that storage method being vulnerable to power loss.  That does concern me a lot.  That’s why I favor canning as a food preservation method.  It’s a good way to back up the freezer.  If power is lost for more than a day or so, the meat can be defrosted and canned.  We have a propane-fueled camping stove that works well for this.  Storing canned foods in a cool dry basement works really well and carefully canned food will last for a long time… a few years, at least.
       

    • I just found a second hand power generator this afternoon : very new (the guy used it 8 hours), 3kW, 3,5 kW max, for 200 Euros

  7. After putting together 2 years worth for the family, and getting sick and tired of people not getting the hint that being prepared is a good idea, I decided to stock some for my community. Contact the LDS for assistance in cheap food prepping. https://www.lds.org/topics/food-storage/longer-term-food-supply They dont get the good stuff like I have for our clan. But there is enough to survive.
    Thing is, you cant go around telling people what you have. If anything happens, last thing you need is to fight off all your friends. After hinting that being prepared is a good idea..and no one getting it, I decided to stock our business with the food I bought for them. We have a business that has food palleted and under lock and key. Survival food for my community.
    Stack It!! Stack It ALL!!!

    • @That1Guy
       
      That sounds like an impressive plan, Guy.  Kudos for investing in your community, even if they don’t get it now.  They will, oh yes indeed, they WILL.
       
      Many preppers recommend only stacking the things that we and our families are likely to eat and use.  This is a reasonable approach if eating the food is the only way to replace it with newer food.  But during hard times when bellies are empty, foods that people once would not have touched with a stick will be wolfed down like ambrosia from God’s own table.  The fact that you sell this stackable food means that you don’t have to worry about eating it so it can be rotated and used within its usable shelf life.
       

  8. CerebralIndustrialComplex
    Good point in recognizing the oncoming freight train of pain.  Most of the world’s peoples have experienced that in the last 40 years. The US is not one of those countries.  Complex systems like ours fail in complex ways, slowly and from the inside out. It’s hard to take down a nuclear power such as ours from the outside.
    I see QE coming out of the Fed and Treasury in 3 channels or rivers, all subject to the Cantillion effect.
    1. Those closest to the FIAT funnel get the best and greatest use of this flood of Digi Dollars   Those are the top .01% of 1%. Their net worth increased by 40% since KLUMMAC assumed power. 87 of the wealthiest people in this world have more wealth than the lowest 3.5 billion.

    2.  Most Americans get a flow from a second channel, meager and with the almost completely consuming counterparty risks presented by accepting paper money at interest.
     Most of that 2nd river of FIAT (75% in my estimation) rotates back to the government in taxes. The other 25% is returned to the banks in the forms of interest payments. Only the tiniest remains in the hands of the common man.
    As an FYI, there are dozens of ways to amortize a loan. Notice that the one most common used front loads the interest, with minimal principal paid back? Rarely does anyone get fully out of debt.

    3.  The last channel is the $1 trillion paid to the holders of EBT cards, the MOOCH class and entitlement recipients.
    This does not include the $750 billion paid to retirees and veterans.
    The roughly $1.2 trillion in QE is over and above that $2.8 billion in tax revenues.  43% of the GPD is the public sector with local, state and federal making their negative contribution to the GDP.
    While these figures may not be precise, they are reasonably close.
    The fourth channel is precious metal and commodity stackers
    Those people are still part of the first 3 streams but front run the Digi-FIAT paradigm to protect themselves from the ultimate and mathematically certain restructuring of the petro dollar paradigm and completely unbacked FIAT.

  9. I believe canned goods are edible long after expiration date. Swelling of the can would be a good sign to discard it. As long as the can isn`t swelled, and seal unbroken, it`s edible.
     
    I`ve heard all my life that money can`t buy happiness. But it does appear to smooth out the rough spots. Thats why I stack.

    • @Silver Dollar
       
      The expiration date on canned foods is likely more closely related to the decline in nutritional food value and taste than it is to any hard and fast date beyond which the food is inedible.  I have eaten canned foods that were years beyond their expiration dates and had no ill effects at all.  I am very careful when doing this, though, and pay close attention to the food when it is removed from the can.  Does it smell OK?  Does it look OK? Is the can damaged in any way?  Is the can corroded at all on the inside?  Yes, swelling of the can is a sure sign that we don’t want to open it, much less taste it.  But, another test I perform on such foods is to open the can very slowly with one of those spike type can openers, the kind that punches a triangular hole in the top of the can like one would do with juice cans.  When the can is 1st punctured, listen very carefully for any sign of a hiss.  If you hear one, the food is spoiling and generating by-product gases.  It might not be enough to swell the can at this point but it IS enough to tell us not to taste or eat it.
       
      “I`ve heard all my life that money can`t buy happiness. But it does appear to smooth out the rough spots. Thats why I stack.”
       
      Agreed.  Money cannot buy happiness but a serious lack of money can sure deliver a lot of misery.

    No, we can’t, but they will be of great use and value when the economic S hits TF.  Everything has its time and place.  If we consider the things that we have stacked as preps, MANY of them are not edible.  This does not detract one bit from their usefulness or value, however.  So too is it with gold and silver.  No, they are not ALL that we need to stack but they ARE a vital part of it, no doubt.
     

  11. Well, there we go again.  About 3 years ago when I first started posting on Silver Doctors,  I self diagnosed a unique form of dyslexia.   I was unable to tell the difference between B and T.  Sometimes M’s fell in that category.
     My doctor suggested a high colonic and a 20 mile hike.
    I chose to create a new number
    TRBILLION.  It’s like the Red Queen who could think of 6 impossible things before breakfast.   
    Seems like the affliction is back.  Pat Fields would understand the affliction. It’s spread world wide now. Everyone’s delusional now that we are awash in unlimited FIAT
    But now that we know everything is manipulated by the government including GDP, unemployment, inflation and national debt levels, it probably doesn’t matter what numbers be use.  Gold and silver are the only real money  so what’s the difference of a billion and a trillion between friends?
     

    • Maybe it all comes down to the difference between receiving it and paying it?

      We just did our 2013 taxes.  OW!  Got bit pretty good this time.  Damn, I am SO glad that I am not getting all the Gov I am paying for!  X-p
