MILLIONS, billions, trillions. The numbers long and they never seem to end.

  1. This is exactly why the world is in debt now and our currencies are worth f@#k all. So this tells me that the US Fed has been mandated in 2011 to create 1.6 trillion in fiat currency in the form of invisible digi-dollars. And, the only GOP candidate that is saying anything sensible about this, Ron Paul, has a snowball’s chance in hell of even getting a nomination so the Democrats will go on printing money unabated for another four years, jacking up inflation and stealing from us in higher taxes.
    Multiply this by a couple of hundred countries, or even just the G20, and it becomes a hole that we can never climb out of.
    Invest in gold and dig a vegetable garden.

    Taking advantage of the mild winter so far, I’ve been turning the garden over the last few weeks, a few rows at a time. One more complete turn and I’ll be spreading the mulch. And keeping weapons handy in case I have to defend it next summer.
