Have You Started Hording Gold Yet?

Mark Stein, always a genius, hits another one out of the park.

Love this quote.

"Under the hilarious Canadian bailout, “social justice” requires that auto workers who make $70 per hour be subsidized by taxpayers making less than a third thereof. If it’s unreasonable to expect a guy on 70 bucks an hour to make provision for lean times, why should anyone else?"

It's a great article and gives me a lot to think about. I have been telling hubby that we need to have an on hand cash reserve, not just an emergency fund in the bank. Even a "minor" emergency (compared to an EMP attack) like a volcano or major earthquake here could take out ATMs. And cash will be king.

As with most of the interesting articles I read, h/t Instapundit. :) What would I do without him?!?
