Did you not understand what I wrote? The only physical items that will be worth anything when the economy fails is what you have that can be traded to procure the necessities of life I.e. food, shelter, water, clothing and the list goes on. The paper may not be totally worthless. You could use it for toilet paper or to start fires for heat. You keep your gold, I'd rather have my chickens and a garden.
Alex. You obviously won't accept gold as money but some people will when the dollar collapses. Gold has been money since the beginning of time and it'll always have value long after all fiat currencies are dead and gone. The barter system works as well and it's been around as long as gold, good luck to you.
The point is: a dump truck full of gold is worthless when you have no means to survive with food and water. If you were about to starve and had 1 chicken left in your possession, what’s worth more, the dump truck full of gold, or the chicken.
ALEX, you have a point to a degree but what if I was operating under the premise that I would have precious metals & food?
Frankly, in the higher order of things with weapons and ammo you can THEORETICALLY acquire anything you need - food, barter, whatever. And NO readers, I am not in any way advocating such a strategy, merely pointing out reality.
One does not stock up on just food; not just weapons & ammo; not just barter items. You'll need it all to make it through what may come.

And there it is. Free college and passing cost to the taxpayer. Typical liberal plan.

I agree. I’m no Don fan, but he annihilated them.

I thought he was a progressive? You can’t stop progress! You can’t keep us stuck in time.
The term Progressive does not denote the support of progress, it denotes authoritarianism.
DeBlasio is stuck. He’s bought and paid for by the taxi union and special interests. He can’t abandon them as union dues are the funding mechanism of the Democrat Party.

Funny, since SpikeTV was geared towards men since its inception. Now they’re being sensitive and stupid.
You’re just uneducated and ignorant. Probably a spoiled brat just like this woman.
Yes, there ARE special rules at and within 100 miles of the borders that allow federal officers to search ANY vehicle that has crossed.
You're clearly uneducated and ignorant....probably a SPOILED BRAT just like this woman who imagines all sorts of non-existent "rights."
Yes,there ARE special rules at and within 100 miles of the border that allow the Border patrol to detain and search ANY vehicle that has crossed into the U.S.
as long as those "special rules" do not go against the US Constitution.

Sorry, but these border checks within the states are insane. All they do is harass citizens.
I live near the boarder in Northern New York where this incident took place and I can tell you that the Boarder Patrol is tripping over themselves up here there are so many of them. That includes land and water.

The black community started to fall apart when the government stepped in and decided to help black people. That is when they went downhill. The government F’ed up by trying to help, when all they did is hurt black Americans. Thomas Sowell has pointed to all the numbers. Black unemployment was low, family structure was high, and this is when we still had Jim Crow laws and the country itself was still segregated and not as united as we are today. And all those number flipped over after the government stepped in in the 60′s.
Welfare does nothing more than subjugate people to the government. I saw the rampant welfare abuse and how it kept people in low circumstances and vowed I would rather do without than take a handout.
I don’t agree the government stepping in and ending segregation or passing the Civil Rights Act was wrong, if that’s what you’re asserting. I will agree the Great Society however has led to institutionalized poverty in the black community and those programs need to be abolished or reformed.
"passing the Civil Rights Act ". I heard him make no such statement. LBJ, the father of the "War on Poverty" didn't understand human psychology. Give a guy a check to feed and clothe him, you create a dependent. After he thinks about that awhile he realizes that he deserves more, like his neighbor. Now you have an angry dependent who thinks he's owed. LBJ's greatest failing was that simply he tried to buy off the poor and the blacks with food stamps and welfare. His intentions were good but he failed to carry them out to a sustainable conclusion. FDR was smart enough to realize that the government couldn't fix the problem with just money, he had to create a situation where the problem could fix itself. That's the definition of a leader. Not this golf playing fool in the WH now.

Hey I’m half Mexican and I don’t want to be a bilingual country either! English only please! Do we want to be like Canada and have to have everything written in 2 languages???

I disagree with that. Maybe worst mom of the year. Because if she raised her child with any sense, he wouldn’t be out there in the first place.
Mobs can rake in people who normally would not partake in such action it happens all over the world and we have seen the deadly results . I myself salute this woman and if she saved her son from the mob frenzy good for her .

That is a lie that woman said. It’s is safer now that it use to be based on crime statistics.

Discrimination. Sue their butts. He is an American citizen is he not? I’d give him the money. Why can’t a 12 year old claim the prize?

When are the people of California going to elect the right people to run things instead of the wrong people who make more and more laws against freedom?
