I received an email from an old high school pal – one of those funny messages that goes around the world time and time again. It occurred to me that the reason some of these emails endure and some don’t is that, aside from the humor, there is truth in the parable (as there must be). […]

Eventually, that worthless paper is going to cause widespread pain and suffering. People don’t recognize currency collapses or even want to remember them. Talk to people who lived through the Great Depression and WW II. There aren’t as many of them around as there used to be, but they can tell you about living, flat broke. They lost everything and learned how to waste nothing.

The people who sent me down the road because they believe that they know better than I do, will get to learn the things I’ve learned. the hard way. It’s taken my lifetime to learn the things I’ve learned. Adults today don’t have that much time, in front of them. The events that are coming will force everyone to learn, and quickly.
