Fiscal Cliff. They can and might even kick that can down the road again. But every time it's kicked it just grows bigger.

Enjoy higher price at the pump and food stores.

And then enjoy not being able to buy any of it due to inflation.

Hyperinflation in Germany (the Weimar Republic) between June 1921 and January 1924 is a good place to start your education.

Yes, empty.

One of the things to look at, is the possibility/very good chance, that the dollar will be 'unhooked' from oil. Then we will see real hyperinflation.

If that does happen, will America & indeed Europe be prepared for the shockwaves?

As far as I see it, the problem is that people, including leaders are only looking short term in solving issues.

It's the long term that needs to be looked at.

Nice attitude - I take it that you don't care for any offspring or relatives?

Just a fact, the long term is when all factors have time to change. I do try to take a long term view not that it will benefit me but I view it as the right thing to do.

Fair enough reply, so accept my apologies for being blunt.

Hyperinflation is not good for anyone. Being that the old and very young would be the first to go in the fight for what is left; I don't see how it would benefit anyone that is old or very young.

When the dollar is unhooked from oil, and it will be, when the Middle-East has not advantage for the use of the dollar, the whole world will go to hell in a hand basket.

What? You don't think the American people chose the leader that's going to prevent that from happening?

You're very right. There is no Washington or Churchill on the horizon.

Careful, there are people in here who are going to start labeling you a racist. From one white guy to probably another, I'm just trying to help you.


That'll be very stupid of them, as should the events suggested actually occur, it'll be those racists that they'll need to protect their way of life....

....today of all days confirms that....

...then again, there are those who continue to state that it never happened.
