Question For The Fools?



May 26, 2010 – Comments (5)

How long do you think the government and bankers can keep printing as much money as they want to pay essentially unlimited funds to themselves but cut off the rest of the nation from credit before the citizens FINALLY figure out the country is shutting down while they are living high on the hog?.....or do you think they will take us to war before we sheep start to kick?

I'm guessing that was a rhetorical question. I don't know how long. You can fool the American people a long time.  In the meantime, unlike you the last year, I'll keep making money until it happens rather than ranting into the air.

What was the inflation rate last month? Oh, that's right. It was negative. Alstry doesn't have a clue about what he's talking about.
