Well, the americans have never been known for its subtlety, and not in particular the redneck Texans! Razz

You humans are so stuck in your ways, no matter what you do, the world as you know it, will soon seese to exist, and you only have yourselves to blame.

Your all sat there haply knowing you have some money stashed away for emergencies, but guess what, at the end of the day it's only a paper representation of gold, of which, you will NEVER see a gram off when it kicks off, and what its really going to come down too is what resources you have. And lets think how you will get those resources, especially if your classed as "poor" as it is...

The sign's that balloon is about to pop are already in-front of you, history, always, repeats itself, one way, or another.

I guess the question in the back of everyone's mind is, "do i trust in the government and carry on as i am and hope they will look out for me?, or do what they are doing, hog resources and make sure our enemy/allies don't hit us while were down?" - Think about it ;)

At the end of the day Gold is almost as worthless as papers with numbers printed on it. The true value lies in tools and different usable resources, livestock, fish etc. Thats the commonplace items for bartering. OK, gold where wanted in the really old days too, but you could never eat it! Laughing

Well, you can always put your bar of gold inside a sock, beat someone over the head with it and take their food and stuff. Laughing
Edit: Try the same with paper currency and you'll realize the difference in value. I mean, paper notes are designed to not even burn properly. Though it may be useful for padded armor.

once the price of oil hits a certain point, it becomes financially viable to make it in a lab - we won't run out (except maybe reserves)

simple language: once oil is expensive enough, it will be cheaper to make it

Yeah lets blame right wing politicians for the fact that the States pulls a crap ton of its own oil out of its own land, so much much much more than any european nation and the implications of that. Lets ignore why Alaskan residents get about 3k USD a year just for being a resident. Go ahead and get mad at american politicians for your own countries issues. I know its becoming popular now to blame someone else rather than one's self.

Hmm last time I checked World History it was US 2 vs UK 0. But ok.. sure we can forget those two since they were so long ago. You might want to salute the next japanese flag you see for kicking our ass pretty good to the point it stopped you from growing up speaking german as the UK language. But whatever, I know.. history is irrelevent I guess.

I would say its more like its UK, US, Russia, Poland, free french, china, Italy, and many others 2. Germany, Japan, ottoman empire and Italy 0.

Although Japan should get one point because they fought along side the British empire in WW1 and italy was a bit all over the place, maby 1.5 for them? And minus .5 for russia because they invaded poland who were our allies. Finland is funny because Britain went to war with them too which makes us the only democracies to go to war although both of us never shot at each other. Complex things these world wars.

But at any rate contry to American school teaching, America did not win the war solo. Hence what I said. Infact the only war I can recall that America won without any help was the civil war...

I guess they don't teach the American revolutionary war in Britian nor the war of 1812. That's ok. It's understandable. I wasn't talking about WWII when I said US 2 'vs' UK 0.

I am not sure what you learned in school, but the US did not win the Revolutionary war by themselves Wink

Oh yeah how every single war ever fought has had invested interest from outside sources since history was being kept.

So to use the arguement 'we did it alone' doesn't work with anything, at all.. anywhere in time really concerning warfare.

So I don't understand the crutch of saying America never did anything 'alone'. cept maybe the little mexican and spanish stints, and the little number we did upon japan? Oh wait, I'm sure materials and other goods came from other countries to help support.. which could be said about any other nation that was ever in a war.

So again.. whats the point of claiming America never won something alone when such was never the case for anyone?

Actually fuels my point that when/if America closes up shop, shuts down borders and withdraws all troops from outside the 50.. who is other countries goin' look to when some of these sleeping giants decide to use what they got to get what they want?

Again.. good luck.

EDIT: And agreed with what someone said about food/water being a major war esculating variable. Lowering oil reserves is jus' the signal that's goin' to make the middle east go more nuts, and push the states to become more solitary without enough fuel to feed the machine with its current world wide blanket.. deciding rather to protect its own self and interests rather than 'freedom' of everyone else.

Burma. Look it up as most Americans seem to forget that British forces were in the far east protecting the empire. Aslo everyone here is talking about real military help not just simple supply shipments. Britain does not need the US to protect itself.
