Minimum wage 1963: $1.25 (five silver quarters)

Minimum wage 2013: Approximately $8-$9 depending on state

Value of five silver quarters 2013: Approximately $17

 

I think that's all that needs to be said about how much the US dollar is worth these days.

At one time our currency was based on our gold and silver, now we just print more.

Yeah right!  I bet there's a big IOU note where the gold used to be.

The Federal Reserve refused to allow an audit of Germany's gold that is being held in U.S. vaults.  They were finally allowed to see a few gold bars, then eventually allowed to look at a few stacks, but never allowed to do a full count.

I agree with Crusifier

Lame. Completely lame. The U.S. hasn't done a physical audit of Fort Knox since 1953. Talking about gold in the U.S. is like is like talking about aliens. Show me.


Germany is being completely ripped off. All of this gold has identifying numbers. What little gold the U.S. has sent back to Germany has already been melted down prior to shipment, along with the original identifying numbers -- a big No. No. And the U.S. authorities are saying how the quality of the gold is even better than before. What is the U.S. doing, waving a magic wand or a sorcerer's stone over Germany's gold?


Some of Germany's gold dates back to pre-WWII, and has the German swastika and German Eagle stamped on it. Think Germany will get those highly collectible bars back?

Heh.  Good luck getting your Gold back from the USA.  Just ask Germany.  And what little gold they got, was in different bar form than what was sent to storage.  The USA claims they had to re-melt it and make new bars.  Sure thing.

MORE PROPAGANDA FROM THE PROPAGANDA MINISTRY HOUSED IN THE SAME BUILDING IN DC AS THE MINISTRY OF LOVE, THE MINISTRY OF HATE, AND THE MINISTRY OF DECIET.

Germany has trouble getting it's gold held from the USA and we can't get an audit of the Fed. Let's have an audit and see where we are at. They admit we are at least 17 trillion in debt and I believe it is much more. If not, then what is an audit going to hurt???

Ammunition has become a widely desired, under-the-table currency in America.  What does that say about people's faith in the system?

I don't believe nor trust this government either. Since we are listed as being the No. 1 country to have the most gold...then why are we in such a big mess and have a trillion + dollar deficient?

Without even looking the most gold is in India. Tons of it have "dissapeared" into that country for years...

WHATEVER!  HA HA HA!  Holding other countries gold does not count!

I am wondering if the Freedom of Information Act could be used to make the government show us what is supposedly ours. Right about now I could use a teensy pinch of that gold, and I am certain there are many, many others.

It only takes a little gold to make it look like a lot.  It wouldn't take a lot of actual gold to make lead ingots look like a huge pile of gold bars.  Yeh, when are they going to verify the actual existence of the supposed gold reserve inventory?  Probably went the way of the Social Security Trust Fund.

more PROPAGANDA from the Propaganda Ministry in DC, which is housed in the same building as the Ministry of Love, the Ministry of Hate, The Ministry of Deceit and the Ministry of Disinformation.
