Listen guys and gals, the "S" is getting ready to hit the "F". It doesn't take a pig farmer to realize that. I would like to see and hear about more people getting prepared for it than talking about weather or not this is finally it, cuz' guess what?..........IT IS!!!!
We all know exactly where this is all going. It has been in the works for a long long time. I don't mean to frighten anyone or be so blunt but there seems to be an aire of doubt or disbelief on these threads and I am here to tell you this ain't no joke. You will have no one to blame but yourself if you are standing there with your peepee in your hands when the "S" goes down.
Love you all and hope we can make it through this.

Already countries like Russia's central bank now holds a larger proportion of its reserves in euros than in U.S. dollars. On May 18, the Financial Times reported that China and Brazil are considering bypassing the dollar and conducting their mutual trade in their own currencies. Other reports say that China has increased its gold reserves by 75 percent in recent years.
Arrogant, hubris-filled American officials and their yes-men economists discount Chinese warnings, arguing that the Chinese have no choice but to support the dollar by purchasing Washington's red ink. Otherwise, they say, China stands to lose the value of its large dollar portfolio.
