I came across this site while reading a newsletter. I have not looked at the whole site, but the few pages I have looked at seem like good reading. A lot of good information - you can read and understand (or try to) or bury your head in the sand and say "no way that will happen"

Geez Gloom and Doom.......and I think closer to the truth than most care to admit.
I think however this is all part of a bigger plan........further globalization and a digital currency system, I mean what would make it easier than a major global bankruptcy to introduce the cashless socity? which the groundwork is already in place for and people are becoming prograamed to use their check cards instead of cash.......whats next.....well lets just put this little smart chip (Read RFID) under your skin.
Thatway we can really keep an eye on you and keep you safe, we are afterll already traking you via your GPS enabled cell phone, and with all the club cards we trake every puchase yu make.

Oh and lets not forget the idea our idiot leader is considering to implement the national security card....YOUR PAPERS PLEASE.....
The Drudge Report

And a little more info....... more on the national ID card

In short, that website advocates selling dollars and buying gold.

Here is a comment @Amazon about one of the books mentioned at the website above:

"If the authors are on target with their predictions, investing now in an assault rifle, a cabin in the woods and alot of tinned food would make a better investment than gold."

Thanks for the link OrlandoFlyBoy. I think most people do have their head in the sand. If they were to open their eyes, the USD would already be worthless.

The author suggested selling dollars and buying gold coins/bars, gold ETFs and digital gold. But many of the commentators of that book instead suggest to keep all of the gold holdings as coins/bars in personal custody (home, safe, burry/hide, etc.) rather than in a deposit box/vault in a bank, because the govts in a financial crisis may end up confiscating it. Scary stuff!

And anyone interested in bigger trends than can be spotted on timeframes offered by Oanda can have a look here: http://www.freebuck.com/articles/elliott/index.htm

If you have the time, the site gives readable analysis of various empires and countries way of handling budget deficits, money, silver and gold. There really seems to be similarities between the Greek, Roman and the US.

People, do you buy that?
Sure you will.
You can't live without nightmares and conspiracy stories.
Go make the authors a little more richer.
Maybe even some medical doctors for stress relieve medicine.
To you they will say : "Thanks"
but this is
in their minds : "Stupids as*holes"

Actually, I agree with that. But, don't forget the ammo reloadeer and some cans/bags of gunpowder, stored in a nice dry place.

I'm thinking of moving to the mountains, partly because Florida will be submerged unter 1 - 10 feet of water when the caps melt (which is already happening).
