Many,many people will be forced to retire with little or No money.
This thread is mainly for that group of retirees.

I have lived like a Gypsy King for many years. You can ignore this thread... or you can do the smart thing and prepare for the hard times that are sure to come.

Many folks think that they have enough "money" saved for retirement. They don't understand what will happen the day the banks take a holiday, and when they reopen, it will take 10 "old" dollars to buy one "new" dollar.
(Google"Amero dollars").

Anyway, take heed. What can it hurt? Stock up on as much food as you can stuff in your pantry, and then start putting it under your bed.

Here is the site...About Us

Dont be afraid...just prepare like you would for bad weather.

"It's almost Armageddon if the Japanese and Chinese don't buy our debt,” Robertson said in an interview. "I don't know where we could get the money. I think we've let ourselves get in a terrible situation and I think we ought to try and get out of it."

Its playing out now. Google 'Amero Dollars'.

By the way, to much snow up where your retirement home will be. You will need a place with a long 'growing' season for a garden when the tougher times hit. Can't eat money you know.

Where do you shower during your stays in the box van? What shampoo and conditioner do you use? How about blow dryers?
