Came of age as tricky Dick separated USD from gold and poofed the petro dollar. Capitalism is a favorite power tool though it doesn't cut it like it used to. Proponent of sound money, actual free markets, and long walks on the beach. Motto: buy and hold physical silver. Inactive of late as I don't advocate buying stocks of any kind for lack of trust in the banking system, but that's just me. Wishing everyone peace and prosperity in the times ahead.
