If the dollar failed tomorrow and gold and silver took its place...Heck Yes!! Is it safe to say that the buying power of an ounce of silver or gold would match that of their current spot prices. In other words 1 ounce of silver would buy about $19.00 worth of goods and gold would buy apx. $1,200.00 worth of goods.

This is how the market deals with bigots

http://ambulancedriverfiles.com

And that’s fine, really. If they’re afraid of the gay cooties, that’s their business. The libertarian in me tells me that, as a private business, they have the right to refuse service to anyone.
But they don’t have the right to be immune from the consequences of their intolerance and bigotry.
