If you go to C-Span.org, you an click your way to yesterday's hearings, and see for yourself, Live Testimoney which exposes the corruption of the Beck/Goldline scam.

Just one more effort by the Beckistan to fear monger, for money, like the rest of the RW/Repiglican/Tea Party/Money-mongering pundits!

The gentleman who testified, about how he was scammed, was no dummy, either.

Only a hyperpartisan doublethinker with no knowledge of US history the the fascist acts of FDR could be amazed that someone would suggest that the US gubmint might confiscate private gold stocks.

Good article.
Gold and diamonds etc are a pox on humanity.
They hav next to zero worth.
If i were king i would find some way of destroying them, ie the system that promotes them, ie the need for them for finance etc.
It costs a lot of $$$$ to mine this allmost useless krap.
One day someone might be killed or injured in a goldmine or diamond mine.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> Most articles, books, and papers that cover the New Deal concentrate on the myriad of programs and policies of the Roosevelt administration, such as the National Industrial Recovery Act, the Agricultural Adjustment Act, and the Wagner Act, and the battles between Roosevelt and the U.S. Supreme Court, which had struck down some key elements of the New Deal in 1935. For the most part – and especially in those writings that are favorable to Roosevelt – <u>authors tend to emphasize the vast unemployment and helplessness that gripped the United States (and much of the world) in 1933.</u></div></div>

Tough times.

What relevance does "TOUGH TIMES" have?

Either we are a nation ow laws as the republic was founded or we are a nation of men when an oligarchy of a few can do what they wish.

I choose the republic ... your choice to worship at the altar of the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent state is well documented.

And, once this is all said and done, we have the far left ... in another act of hive mentality collectivist doublethink ... claiming that the state would never confiscate the public's gold while at the same time explaining how the the gubmint confiscating the public's gold is a wonderful thing.
