I just saw this on cnn and wanted to share this to all. I also did read a while back that on sep,30th,2008 that the US dollar will be worth nothing.

There was a post on ats that claimed that sep,30th there is a audit that will show how big this hole is so this article is not the offical thing I have heard it's a estimate.

what do you guys think of this??? Is it true will the dollar be worthless???
