Apparently Chain is caught trying to re-write history again.


Speaking of Fascists Chain, did you know the progressive liberal party of the 20s and 30s Idolized Mussolini, and not until they saw his zest for helping in with the killing of millions, did they back away from that idea so as not to put the fear into the american eyes of their own socialist agenda.

It might indeed be a time to make a profit but for those with little or no investments I doubt gold or silver will be their salvation. When the poop hits the air mover and currency is not wroth the paper its printed on commodities will be what gets you through. Gold and silver are fine once the recovery begins but that could take years! In the meantime you will need to survive and learn to barter. Food, guns, ammo and booz will top the list, ask any of the Soviet Block survivors.

Would thus mean the Dollar Stores would collapse, too?

Would that be just the businesses, or the whole buildings?

Dang, so much for getting a Dollar Store survival kit.

Can we get a collapsing Dollar survival kit at the Dollar Store?

The autobahn was built to move military forces. President Eisenhower was so impressed that he started the American Interstate Systems for the same reasons. The American interstate system was built for the military not citizens conveniences. Americans of the 1950 were told up front it was first for the military.

On the American Frontier a man with a bag of gold could starve to death. A man with a box of .44-40 Winchester Ctgs. could buy anything.

My great granddad told me an ounce of gold would buy a good Colt pistol when he was a young man.
Seems to me an ounce of gold will still buy a good Colt pistol today.
take your pick of which you want. I already have both. LOL

But that's only because it has that much value in a currency based economy.

That's where I'm confusing myself, and it's mostly because people say, "when SHTF, you'd better have gold on hand."

No, when/if SHTF, I'm breaking out the heirloom seeds and spare ammo. Can't eat gold.

And it seems, to my pitifully inadequate knowledge, that the value of gold (in fiat currency) directly correlates to inflation. Meaning basically, the value of gold in dollars rises as the value of the dollar decreases.

I think I'm trying to over think the **** out of this. Worst case scenario, I'm planting a garden and hunting without a license. I guess that's all I really need to know.

A good plan covers a range of possibilities. Nightstalker's plan is great for taking advantage of almost certain economic down turns. In the case of a complete economic collapse commodities would be vital and that should also be part of a comprehensive plan. So those are the two extremes and then there is everything else in the middle.

My aunt was a WWII German War bride. She said when the German economic base was destroyed survival was difficult. My aunt recounted that the only way you could get food was bartering. It was all necessity based items. Warm coats or shoes for a chicken etc. Family heirlooms made of gold and silver were sold early on for as little as the cost of a dozen eggs. Food was the most precious item. Those that had extra food often went to prison or worse for hoarding.

If it ever happens you shall find me at the local beer distributor drinking Sam Adams lager sitting on a throne made of lesser-beer cases (think game of thrones sword throne but beer cases) I will also have many concubines to fan me with palm tree leaves and feed me grapes. Looters will be shot on site, Hippies=shot, any fathers husbands or boyfriends looking to reclaim my concubines=shot. Fat chicks=shot. You get the idea ....


**** I just realized I'm gonna need more ammo
