Build a bubble around myself and fill it with ALL my cash..I will be fine.
Not much you can do for the long term but prepare like you would for a hurricane or snowstorm.
Buy gold ,silver and food..
I'm not concerned about it at all, every time I hear the term, I think of lemmings jumping off of a cliff.
Rely on as much food prep work as I can and hope my ability to stay calm and think logically will pay off.<br />
Off topic. I love your hat.
No, I am not concerned. It would be spectacular if congress would agree on a Simpson/Bowles like solution but even if they don't a fiscal clift is better than kicking the can down the road; at least it will look like that by the decades end. Save your silver/gold/food/ammo money and either use it at your neighboring watering hole or just invest it in some low cost sp500 index.
Money is paper. Lead trumps paper. No worries. Beware landlords, your peasants are at risk. Ref. French Revolution and World War II. This one is going to be really fun because we start with nukes. Maybe the landlords will take that into consideration and avoid trouble but I doubt their wisdom given their greed.
I've ordered one of those big blow up air bags to soften my fall. Acme (the same place the Coyote buys his cool stuff) has an eBay store now
