So that’s why FDR confiscated it all! Why, he wanted to save us from that evil gold, that was bringing our grandparents’ generation to ruin!
How tragic that this saintly man has had to sustain such mean-spirited attacks for seven decades. In benevolently looting our grandparents, he was merely trying to save later generations from the bad judgment of our forebearers!
No wonder our own generous state acts in his image, and bestows upon our children and grandchildren a mountain of debt. No problema! Why, they’ll be able to redeem that debt with worthless paper! What a relief. Gold is obviously safer in the government’s hands, where it can’t do any damage.8:20 am on March 16, 2009 Email Christopher Manion
