"This currency, as we manage it, is a wonderful machine. It performs its office when we issue it; it pays and clothes troops, and provides victuals and ammunition; and when we are obliged to issue a quantity excessive, it pays itself off by depreciation."
Benjamin Franklin, 1779.

If you had sold your house at the very peak of the housing bubble in 2006 … just before silver took off … you could now sell your silver and buy back your house … plus five more houses like it.

Even if you didn’t catch the peak, but just saw the writing on the wall in 2000-2005, you’d still have done pretty well by selling your home and buying silver. You wouldn’t have gotten quite as much for your house, but you would have gotten silver at around $4 instead of $9. Silver probably has another trick or two up its sleeve. It probably has a lot more upside than gold. It will probably play catch up till the silver/gold price ratio gets larger. Who knows? Look at the other coin that was debased: the low
Chiappa "Little Badger" 22 Mag Here is one of the sweetest little guns that I have seen in a long while, the Chiappa Little Badger. The perfect gun for your bug-out bag or to hide under the seat of your truck.
