Today I picked up my mail and there was a letter from the auction house. The check wasn't what I'd hoped for but at least I'm rid of the excess baggage. I guess this depression, errrrr, I mean recession, is still going strong. Sometimes I feel like just crawling into a hole and hoping this will all get better. Then I think, no, stupid, this isn't la-la-land, this is real and you better be prepared. But, when I talk to people they still look at me like I'm some crazed person thats watched too much of Survivior. Anyhow, what to do with this money? Buy Gold, Buy Silver, dig a hole in the back yard and bury it? Buy another gun and more ammo? Dump it on the bed and roll around in it naked? Decisions, decisions, decisions. Notice I didn't say anything about putting it in the bank.
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."
Thomas Jefferson, (Attributed)
3rd president of US (1743 - 1826)
Now don't plan on coming to my house and stealing it, I will shoot you. Besides, it won't be here, I'm paying my fall taxes with it. HA!
