I quit contributing to my 401(K) almost three years ago.
My 7.62X54R account, on the other hand, has doubled in value (literally) based on purchase price one calendar year ago v. today's hot deal at Gunnies, an establishment where they certainly know my name.
I also have positions in 5.56 and .30. And Libby, Dole, and Dinty Moore.
These times... it's like somebody won't turn the fucking Fellini off. Always the malevolent clowns.
BEST COMMENT OF THE WEEK AWARD TO TMJUTAH!
If we had crashed from 1-year ago to here in days, rather than months, it would have been SHTF. I think the ATMs & gas pumps were the first brick in the face in Iceland, right? Speaking of gas... I have reasons for stocking a few tanks worth for that day when SHTF. But 20g & .32s are damned prolific here too.
There is a joke in here somewhere about a "money shot", but I refuse to acknowledge it.
The Arrogant Infidel
Damn. I wish I'd thought of that.
