Tam goes on a rant

These epic events are always worth a read, because she is an excellent writer and a clear thinker.  This one in particular is worth it, because she cuts to the heart of the matter at hand, and, as I believe she would say, gets her wookie suit on.

"As good as money in the bank!"

(Via Survival Blog)

Remember that saying?  That was before years of Federal Reserve-driven inflation turned a dollar into $0.04. (Don't believe me?  Go here, enter the start year as 1913 and the amount as $1.)

These days, smart money is turning itself into "stuff"--precious metals, jewels, classic cars--anything that it thinks will hold value.  Before the government confiscates it.

Funny, Mrs. Freeholder and I just had a short discussion earlier this evening on just how much longer we would be maintaining our current cash position....
