Those guys are crooks I wouldn`t be surprised if they didn`t already steal all the gold for themselves.
Bingo, who's to say the gold from Knoxville and almost everywhere else somehow
made it's way into a couple of very spacious basements in France-- or Switzerland?
Of also primary interest might be a couple of those castles that never got a single

EDIT: the lion's share of the CTFC scandal had to do with BIG time leverage in the
paper precious metals.. these guys were scrambling two whole years ago to get
real metal with increasingly worthless dollars to meet maturities. OOps. Guess
the cat chewed his way out of the bag and nobody cares until lettuce is $4/HEAD.

I understand, So by this, we are doomed already and have to adapt to the changes forced upon us from this evolutionary demise of the human race. So the humane option would be to just love your family and do whatever one can do to lessen the sorrow and pain of this process. If we can die with smiles in our hearts then we can know with certainty we comforted our sons and daughters when death takes us into the next .....
