Re: The Coming Economic Collapse

Well, I will be taking my trip to Argentina in a few months. Want to move for other reasons anyway, low cost of living, change of culture, etc. As I stated in other threads, want to keep a place in NYC but live half the time somewhere cheap and foreign. Anyone read this book. It is on amazon and I am a cheapskate but wanted to know if it is worthwhile. One of the reviews said that the book warns of hyperinflation. The book is called the coming economic collapse and how you can thrive when oil cost $200 a barrel

And they banned guns, so we wouldn't even have to worry about an insurgency. Hmm.... I do love the Vancouver/Victoria area!

Somebody up here has guns.

We just had "The Shedden Massacre" 10 days ago.

About 20 minutes southwest of London, 8 members of the Canadian Bandidos were offed and dumped in the woods.

Yes, that's a beautiful area, with a wealth of outdoor possibilities.

The relocation centers, of course, would be in the far North Tundra.

Re: The Coming Economic Collapse

We really should thank our lucky stars to have Canada as our neighbor, and not the Sudan. We're just spoofing you guys up nort, eh? It's aboot time we show some respect, let's sing their national anthem! "Oh Canada, the pipes, the pipes are calling!"...oh wait...

Seriously, I have no idea where this rivalry thing got started : but I do love your country, you should be very proud. I will continue to visit often and spend those taxed at a marginal rate under 90% american dollars.

Consider Louisiana. Paul Terhorst said he never visited a more foreign country than Louisiana.

Good luck on your trip! If it's not too much trouble, give us a trip report when/if you get back. Hell, give us weekly posts from the road. Write something for Escape Artist. I hope you ain't a vegan.

Cheers!

What a coincidence, my nephew says he saw a higher standard of living in Afghanistan than in the area around Fort Polk, LA...

Re: The Coming Economic Collapse

Can we really take an article like this seriously when it doesn't mention even once how gold can help you during this transition

Excellent point. I've always gotten a chuckle out of the "buy gold the end is near" stories. If things really go to crap, bullets for my .357 will be much more valuable than any piece of shiny junk.

Re: The Coming Economic Collapse

Hmmm

Well - this time around, having been thru the 70's and 80's with a few leftovers(gold , timberland, foriegn stock, etc) - I'll be dumping all that crap and buying American at bargin prices- stocks, long bonds and a big gas sucking V8 pickup.

Maybe even move back to Louisiana.

Then again MO ain't too bad - so far.

heh heh heh

Victoria, especially, is beyoootiful! But, a few years ago, I was up there at Christmas time.* My **** shrunk!* * Is that right or should it be shrank?

Someone should start a company marketing bullets made of gold. That way when the apocalypse comes, you can choose depending on the situation to trade your bullets for food, or to shoot them at your neighbor.
