    This is a cool story. It is a fictional tale of what could transpire if the US dollar should completely collapse.
    At the top of the page on the right side, there is a calendar. This link will take you to the first chapter which was posted on 11/18.

    The story continues on 11/19, 11/21, and 11/25. Click on the date to read the next segment.
    It appears to be ongoing so I try to check back every day to look for the next chapter. Hope you find it as intriguing as I did.

    Like the blog

    Got the blog bookmarked. Thanks for the info!

    You know, as long as it took mainstreamers to call last year's mess a recession, I wonder how long it will take most people to realize the fragility of the US dollar. Seems like people I know are avoiding the discussion. Certainly, around these parts you'd think it was the early 80's with all the holiday shopping sprees going on. I imagine foreclosures will increase again early next year, people trying to keep up with the Jones'.

    I digress, sorry. Gonna keep an eye on this blog, interesting.

    The Day The Dollar Died ( Reposted For Aug 2010 )

    I was going to post this story as well, but glad I searched the forums first. Here is the link to the story in it's entirety anyway.

    Shenandoah » 2009 » November » 18

    What I found to be most real in it was how easy it would be for the economy to truly collapse considering how things are right now. We have an out of control government spending gobs of money, our financial standing with the world is on thin ice and on and on. Even a short disruption to the supply chain would be disasterous to those in the big cities and the reality is this country could spin into chaos quite easily. I took the story with a grain of salt but did get me thinking more about getting my act together.

    Ok, so I just finished it up, and... Woah, my mind has been BLOWN. VERY well written (a MAJOR plus, MUCH better than some drivle you find out there on the webernets with por spling, and very much bad grammers, ya know? ;)), VERY compelling read, and talk about being a "scroller" (cant very well be a PAGE turner in a web browser, now can it?:lolsmash: )!

    It's a scary thing, it really is. Shared it with my FB friends, my mom was the only one to comment so far, quick to remind me that "we are in and not of the world, so we've nothing to fear."

    It's scary to think that at ANY given time, something like that could very well happen.

    Thanks kindly, UncleJoe, this story has made my top 25 list, for SURE.

    But remember, when people fear the government, there is tyranny. When governments fear their PEOPLE, there is LIBERTY!

    So fear not, and keep on keepin' on!

    He's philosophical reeeeeeeeeeal late at night,
