Or we draw on efficiency of our printing press) so millions of doellars are paid to those absolutely irreplaceable people for what? To prepare those very smart reports to show puppets in congress that they are very smart and need trillions in salaries and bonuses? Now everybody knows the shit will hit the fun, the question is when and everybody is jockeying for better position to ripp as many benefits as possible.

No problem whatsoever ... as the U.S.$Dollar will be significantly devalued in AU terms, e.g., $10,000 @ troy ounce, with 10%+ AU backing of the "new" U.S.$Dollar.
The in-ground AU, with other precious metals, has already been identified & assayed, all of USA origin.
Good recent book out on this coming wave of LBO disasters...."The Buyout of America". Worth a read and you will never buy the stock of one of these dogs after you get a few pages into it.
This is an excellent piece of work. Thank you for the supporting material as well.
