Beans and Bullets (April 6, 2009)

The Democrats seem to be responding to the coming economic collapse by stockpiling rice and water.  The Republicans seem to be responding by storing guns and ammo.  Now may be the time to be bipartisan.  Beans and bullets.

Will lead replace copper, nickel, silver and gold?  Will daily transactions be conducted using 12 gauge shells and .22s as the medium of exchange, unit of value and store of account?  Will the 12 gauge itself be used to facilitate exchanges?  And will the 7.62 x 39 emerge as the world’s reserve currency?

The signs are unpromising, yet one sure hopes that these are not a sign of the times.

Bumper sticker of the week:

Guns and Butter
