There is an end to everything, is our time now ???????

The financial collapse that so many of us have been anticipating is seemingly closer then ever. Over the past several weeks, there have been a host of ominous signs for the U.S. economy. Yields on U.S. Treasuries have moved up rapidly and Moody's is publicly warning that it may have to cut the rating on U.S. government debt soon. Mortgage rates are also moving up aggressively. The euro and the U.S. dollar both look incredibly shaky. Jobs continue to be shipped out of the United States at a blistering pace as our politicians stand by and do nothing. Confidence in U.S. government debt around the globe continues to decline. State and local governments that are drowning in debt across the United States are savagely cutting back on even essential social services and are coming up with increasingly "creative" ways of getting more money out of all of us. Meanwhile, tremor after tremor continues to strike the world financial system. So does this mean that we have almost reached a tipping point? Is the world on the verge of a major financial collapse?

Sounds fabulous.

Where's the best place to go buy some gold and silver coinage?

Looks to be a lot of web scams out there, claiming to have the best quality/price, etc. Don't want to get burned...

flip a coin... History shows us tiny things can have huge effects and huge things can have no effect...depending on how those who hold the power choose to react. Such a reaction can even be altered by things that have no relation to the problem.

Maybe Kim Jong Dufas-head tripped over his golden toilet earlier in the morning and is extra pissed when his generals call in to ask for permission to fire Southward.

Maybe Goldman Sachs forgot to pay a mil extra on their "campaign contributions" last year.

Who know? That's the problem of living in a unstable world. Any day could be "the big one".

Your local coin dealer---look in the Yellow Pages. They are all online, they know the spot price of gold and silver minute to minute, and stick pretty close to the industry standard on their quoted buy/sell price. No sales tax, they don't take credit cards.

Find the global market price of gold, silver, platinum, up to the minute, at http://www.kitco.com and other places.
