You've all been reduced to ad hominem attacks since there are over 94 million Americans out of work. One in six is in poverty and almost 50 million on food stamps EBT!!!!

Okay--here goes.

Is the economy better or worse?
Dunno--just know I'm gainfully employed with a firm that's doing well.

Is Slim a troll and a horse's tuchus?
Yes. Proof: read his posts.

Next?

93 million workers left the work force and have not returned. My brother has been looking for a job in his field for a while now. No success. Another friend had to relocate and take a lower paying job. He is in the health industry. Though, the economy is improving for some- those on gov't assistance and food stamps.

If only your brother were allowed to volunteer to work for less than minimum wage.

Conveniently overlooking the fact that thousands of post WWII baby boomers, a much larger generation than the one that followed, are retiring every day. Also, the 93 million figure is ridiculous because those that cite it include students and children as well as those who've actually left the job force.

Discussions like this go nowhere when people just spout party line nonsense rather than facts.

Unemployment is LESS than it was eight years ago, and, overall, the economy is in far better shape than it was at the end of 2008. Those are facts.

Hey if children are not willing to work why have them? Remember back in the 1800s?

Not only children, but canaries too struggle to find traditional employment in coal mines now.

My 401(k) didn't take a huge hit this week.

Maybe you just chose lousy investments.

Honestly, I did buy 5 cases of my sons favorite Kraft dinner and a case of my wife's favorite Stag chili. I spent an extra $300 on non-perishable foods last week. I will again this week too. If I'm wrong I'll just have a lot of extra food on hand to give to the shelter. I purchased a huge amount of tuna fish on sale at 38 cents a can a while back. It's about twice that now on sale. Every time I have a tuna sandwich I feel good about a 50% savings. Smile

Gold won't work. Food is the best thing to have (And protection)... You can't feed gold to your kids and no one will sell you food if they are hungry. History teaches the truth.

I dunno. I think I'm with Bob. Gold has remained valuable through all the disasters in recorded history. Assuming you live through it all, of course. Just to be safe, I think you should pack away some gold.

Then again, there was an episode of Twilight Zone where the criminals went into suspended animation for 100 years, and when they re-emerged gold had no value (we had learned how to synthesize the stuff). So there's always the chance of that.
