    Say you give a MONOPOLY GAME to your kids. After awhile they say they want to change the rules to fit modern conditions. You reply, "Fine. keep the noise down." To them, it is a serious game. To you, it is only a game. You don't have a stake in that game.

    I think that situation well describes the USA. The people who call themselves "middle class" are living in a monopoly game and worry about the rules thus the arguments over Supreme Court Decisions and legislation. Will our parents take away our freedom to play our game? We must change the rules of the game.

    Our parents, the 1% and their multi-national corporations, own or control everything worth owning and controlling and no longer have a stake in OUR game. They hardly know we exist and don't care what we do. It can't effect them.

    There is no point to us worrying about gold vs fiat money. Our money is now play money and "we" don't own enough gold to make a difference in anything. Gold has little value to our parents because it has very few industrial uses. If everyone all of a sudden wanted to use rare earth metals as jewelry and paper weights, THEN the stuff would hit the fan.

    So what does this mean?

    Your kids wanted to buy properties with nothing down and take a 120% of value mortgage on the properties?

    They wanted the government to subsidize their mortgages?

    They wanted to not pay the rent due to others but still stay on the property?

    What are you talking about? :laugh:

    Hey, thanks for the laugh.

    [Pssst....integrated circuits use gold. There are a few integrated circuits, i.e. chips, in the world. Just a few.]

    If you have some of that worthless gold or other rare metals laying around you want taken off your hands, please ship it to me. I will give you my address in a PM and will even pay shipping.

    No, but Kryptonite is worth millions to Lex Luthor.
