Re: Would you pay for Usenet with Bitcoin?

Thank you for the "rant", it is such a breath of fresh air to know that there are other people out there that are wise to the ponzy scheme that is the Federal Reserve...they go on printing and stealing our wealth right out from under us, it's frustrating to say the least as they actually penalize those of us who try to save, they keep interest rates at zero to prevent the whole system from collapsing...everyone do yourselves a favor and start investing in something that people will always be willing to trade for and accept, ideally this is gold but silver is an excellent alternative also - its value is highly distorted because the banks fix the price of silver through fractional reserve banking as well.

problem is the gold standard just does not work any longer.

But really I never understood it as a ponzy scheme. Though I do know banking as an industry from the reserve on down is never to be trusted even if I keep my money in a bank.

I cannot trust people that, crash an economy, get tax dollars to stay afloat and still get their seven figure bonus.

Actually the Gold Standard does work and keeps government spending in check because it, the government, can only spend what it actually has. When Nixon took us off the gold standard, it was the death nail for this country. Our country has been steadily going down hill since then.

Also gold is a good indicator of a weak currency. The higher the gold prices the weaker the currency. Anyway people need to be aware that there is a storm coming and prepare for the worst. Remember the bread lines in the USSR back in the '80s? I can see that happening here.

Agreed, I am storing food and buying bullets - the dollar meltdown is only a matter of time - people aught to have heard Ron Paul's warnings...
