    The dollar never tanked, even then. So ol wise one, again, tell me when the dollar was ever devalued to nothing.
    You can't because it's never happened.
    And I hesitate to ask someone who has invested their money as you have but I'm still curious.

    I think you are incorrect about the percent and years. Try being an adult and doing without the insult next time.

    Sorry to sidetrack a little, but damn that would be tough to live through, especially when trying to feed a family. Many of us, me included, have never faced that kind of hardship. It’s hard to imagine the actual hardships associated with a true SHTF scenario.

    Not just the hardships during, but also what might lead to it. That’s why it’s so hard to plan.

    when was the last time in the United States a Socialist ran for president.or for that matter, a Socidalist president? We’ve never had so many young people clammering for “free stuff.” I think they’re called millinials? During the Great Depression the population was far less than nw, they planted gardens and grew a lot of their food, hunted and foraged for food but land is not so plentiful now, yes we still have the same amount of land but more people are standing on it, there’s no place to land a sustaining garden. Another depression would be chaotic and the government helpless in most cases.

    I don't have much but I think g&s might alway have intrinsic value. In a true economic collapse, 5k may not get you a tent and a loaf of bread. Jmo

    The generations before me is why I never consider being called an Okie an insult. I know what the folks that survived the Depression, the Dust Bowl (AKA Dirty Thirties), and WWII went through. Their courage turns the name Okie into a badge of courage.

    It's foreseeable now, however. The dollar is no longer backed by anything tangible.

    I'll give him a call. I've decided to start buying silver because the silver:gold ratio is so high atm. Damn... I wish I was of working age 15 years ago and knew what I do now.
