Think about it. You've seen in our investment community and some folks in your neighborhood, collecting gold. We need gold for manufacturing, electronics, some household goods, jewelry and on-and-on. What gold our locals and persons in the investment community are collecting, is a pittance compared to what our government is selling. Foolish, stupid; you bet, while China is buying tons and Russia has bought gold weighing more than the Statue of Liberty. We are selling to support our debt and we are printing so much money, it is becoming funny money. You've seen it; nations see our dollar as being unstable.
