    I was just thinking....and I find it ironic that Spain, Germany, Italy, Greece, the U.S. and the other Europeans nations are now going through economic crises. This is the law of reciprocity, because there was no way that all these countries were going to profit from the pain of our people and then think that the energy wasn't coming back for them!

    So now that it is coming back...great!!!....and about time!!!

    I can see why you use the word ironic. What they call "economic", is actually a cleverly guised ponzi scheme. You saying it's coming back, I say it's not moving fast enough.

    By the way your new avatar scares me more than the one with the hat. You look like you sell insurance, only difference is, I don't think it would be advisable for someone to reject your offer. lol
    hahahahaha. I had to tease pham. lol

    Who says you have to go to a store?
    What about producing your own? Your own food? Your own energy?

    If you do go to a store, does it have to be a big name store?
    I buy my meat from a local farmer. I get more meat and better quality than what I can acquire in a store.

    If you do go to a small farmer or small business, who says that transaction has to take place in dollars?
    What about gold and silver coin?

    Paper i.e. stocks, bonds, mutual funds, futures, etc. are valued in dollars.
    You may get more dollars, but those dollars purchase less stuff.

    This tells me that substance is increasing in value i.e. food, metals, and other commodities, etc while dollars are decreasing in purchasing power.
    You need to get on the right side of scale.

    At the rate inflation is going, a mere tomato will be more valuable than the medium of exchange used to acquire it.

    Don't get me wrong .... you'll have some paper and use it, but you want to store your long term savings in substance.

    You could store your long term savings in paper, but when a Weimer Germany or Argentinian style collapse occurs to paper, you'll wish you had the substance in its place.

    I'll tell you what's ironic the fact we seem to think we are somehow going to escape when we live in their nations. If they go down, no doubt we are going with them.

    You have a point there...which is why I've been trying too get people to think outside of the plantation so to speak. Lets face it, we don't really know what's going on in other countries because we are using the same medium of communication that they control to keep everybody in check.
