The economic meltdown in the US (and hence the world) is only one bad policy decision away. Don't get caught holding too much fiat money.
Buy gold and silver . . . and take physical delivery.
I suggest contacting Franklin Sanders at email@example.com. He is trustworthy and has been in the business for many years.
Oh, this weekend offers many opportunities for someone to make that "bad policy decision."
Live well . . .
