Gold with anger!

When I hear about werewolves, see collector spoons, see jewelry, or find a pre-1965 quarter - I think about silver. More importantly, how the world and The United States of America abandoned this classic precious metal- making it: A STANDARD NO MORE. That's right, silver is not an accepted monetary standard. However the horrible puke colored gold is the standard, nationally and globally.

WTF, does this mean... it means that gold is the only "monetary standard under which the basic unit of currency is equal in value to and exchangeable" (freedictionary.com). Our monies and printed currency is only worth as much as the gold that backs it. This makes me SO angry for several reasons. Silver is a great resource and looks dapper on my lapels, derby, and top hats! It should have never been abandoned. Imagine if the rest of the world abandoned the silver standard, but the US didn't - guess who has more money ... we do!



Also, the United States of America don't need no stinkin' gold! We have a standard called a massive and well trained army, an insane amount of war technology, the greatest Universities, baseball, and Barack Obama. Move over you ridiculous bullions - make way for reality!

A silver standard would be great for the ol' Battle Born state.

why don't we just take barack obama's feces and process that into our new currency, since you love him so damn much.

The longer I don't live in Nevada the more I like the state and actively promote/rep it...how weird.

Mr. Philippe said...

@stina in a perfect world; but alas to turn Obama matter into currency would make all other currencies null. Hail to the chief!

@pml @neverbesocial Nevada is a cool state, whereas the city of Las Vegas isn't cool.
