I've been trying to tell my mother the ship is sinking, and gold is going to skyrocket. Take any funds out of her 401k and put into Gold/Silver. Too late now, and now today it shoots up over $70-80 a ounce in one day gesus. I'm trying to earn much money, and sell all the crap in my house for gold/silver just isn't enough. Is this the begining of our financial meltdown? like the water hitting our ankles, and the ship lifting itself up in the air. Now I feel I'm going to be stuck on bottom of 3rd class, and go to the bottom of the sea. At the same time seems like no one gives a damn, no one cares while the ship sinks. Hell I'm at my college atm , when I brought up the topic of markets are tanking. People respond "alright" like there is no sense of urgency or even to the point it dosen't exist to them. Only thing that is important to them is texting on their phones or checking out facebook. WTF is something wrong with this picture or should I be asking myself should I really give a damn? drink a couple of beers, play video games, and go down with the ship. It's not in my control, if the economy collaspes it happens.
