I myself am stocking some unparishables and water.
I do have a wiled plan on this whole thing...and how we can get out of it.
A few decades ago when the government left the gold standard I think some very keen experts may have anticipated this downfall of the US dollar.
And knowing this waited untill a time when another nations currency came on the scene and mabye invested in it heavily.(euro)
Now we may secretly have hundreds of billions of dollars allready converted to euro and when this happens if the US were to Instantly switch to the Euro dollar and do away with the Over inflated american dollar.
we would own this whole situation.
and then get all americans to turn over their gold watches and gold chains to the government to put it all back in fort knox.
and you know what else we could do.
right before our Government makes this switch to the euro .
we pay all of our national and foreign debts and the deficite with american dollars.
we'll just print like 9 trillion dollars then pay all our debts with greenbacks
rite before we dump it all and switch to the euro.
Talk about insider trading...Martha stewert look out.
then we drill like crazy for oil here.
And its true that you would only get 1 euro doller for every $1.25 US but I think goods would become cheaper in the long run so we would all save money.
and mabye the government will give us all a big tax break.
something like 5 years with no taxes at all.
It would be great.

Looks like Turtle was asleep in Economics the day inflation was explained.

If Alan Greenspan hears this, not only will it kill him, but he'll immediately start spinning the moment he gets in his grave.

I know NOTHING about economics and I know this is horseshit!

Damn- you guys have already jumped on the important stuff. Didn't they separate from the gold standard 100 years ago?
Putting the gold in Fort Knox does what?
<we'll just print like 9 trillion dollars then pay all our debts with greenbacks> HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
<rite before we dump it all and switch to the euro> BEEN DONE!
<then we drill like crazy for oil here.> BEEN DONE! SERIOUSLY! BEEN DONE! WHY DO YOU THINK YOU\"RE MAKING AN ASS OF YOURSELF IN IRAQ!!!
<and mabye the government will give us all a big tax break> Another one? Isn't that half the reason the economy's going down the shitter? Stop making the rich richer and the poor poorer!
<something like 5 years with no taxes at all> OOOOOOOH ANARCHY!!!! NO SCHOOLING. NO WELFARE. NO SERVICES. NO POLICE. NO GOVERNMENT. COOOOL!!!!!

He has a great imagination, I'll give him that.
He's batshit crazy, but great imagination.

Turtle, you would do anything like crazy, for sure. Guess why.

My favourite part is the unparishables[sic].
Where exactly is Turtle storing those poor people who don't fit into any church and did they have any say in the matter?

Ah. They teach conspiratorial economics alongside creation science where you live, do they?

I have no idea what it means but I'm pretty sure it's wrong. Does he mean driving up US inflation like mad and then paying off all the possible debts before switching to another currency to make it all okay again? Surely if that kind of thing worked, it would be done more regularly (and would probably cause the world ecconomy to collapse within five days).
Must be homeschooling.

You fail at Economics.
6/3/2008 12:51:20 PM
... that's not how basic economics works...
that would also drive down the euro to something like five cents.

Hey, I just noticed he calls the Euro "Euro dollar".

Economics... you're doing it wrong.

Printing more money has been tried. It didn't work, at all!
The effect was the very opposite of being able to pay off anything.
You'd be pretty surprised if you needed a wheelbarrow full of money to buy a few ingredients for dinner, wouldn't you?

"And knowing this waited untill a time when another nations currency came on the scene and mabye invested in it heavily.(euro)"
The Euro is the least of your problems.
"Now we may secretly have hundreds of billions of dollars allready converted to euro"
'May'?! One country in particular has
over $2 trillion in foreign currency reserves. Who do you think has been lending your country - whilst your God Emperor of Fucking Up, George Dumbya Bush was in power - $2 billion a day just to keep your country's economy afloat? Who's been buying up your country's debts? Who effectively owns
your country? A clue for free:
I for one welcome our new Chinese overlords. Better start learning Mandarin. And Atheism, Repubicans, Neocons & Religious Right.
Where is your God now?
Remember the Roman Empire, Ottoman Empire, British Empire, Third Reich, and USSR? Don't forget, all great powers fall. No Exceptions.
You don't need to be Prof. Stephen Hawking to figure out who'll be next to join that list.

I can't take you seriously because your spelling, grammar and writing is so poor. You are obviously an uneducated twit and I have no reason to believe that you have any idea what you are talking about.

"A few decades ago when the government left the gold standard I think some very keen experts may have anticipated this downfall of the US dollar."
It turns out a lot of people saw the American collapse coming, they just weren't the guys on tv all the time before, during or remarkably since. While the experts that warned about this very collapse were on record years ago American TV and Trade papers were feeding everyone the GOP plan and THEY STILL FUCKING ARE. NO SHAME, no responsibility, no credibility.
And by the way folks, the money isn't gone. Your system gave it to that 1% that had most the wealth already. Money doesn't disappear or trickle down, in this case it went to the rich and now simply goes sideways between them until they can get at the remainder.
If this shit continues you won't have a democracy, a republic or a land of the free. You'll have an Industrial Monarchy.
Have you noticed how all Republican plans are about the rich controlling everything. I guess you be happier when the house you live in, your job, your hospitals, schools, highways
bridges, markets and supply lines are owned by that 1% of old-world generations long Rich

No. The gold standard was unsustainable, and the dollar fell immediately after its abandonment, ending the 1970 recession after the 1964-1969 growth spree, by making American goods competitive again.
Gold peaked in 1980, and fell after fears of inflation were defeated in 1978-1982. That took higher interest rates, and two more recessions, in 1980 and 1982. (The US also head a nasty one in 1974-75 due to the oil shock)
Gold bottomed out in the nineties. And nobody speculates over 40 years, simply because
A)They greedy bastards want money now.
B)They don't know shit about the world 40 years from now.
