Buy Gold and Silver

Obama has spent $5 trillion of our money, and he has nothing to show for it. Are you better off than you were $5 trillion ago? The USA should be under the supervision of a bankruptcy judge. Despite the mess he has created, Obama has a new spending plan, and he roped in a Reno family as his showpiece. How sad. Of course he will go with his usual game plan: To propose a spending plan, use sympathetic people to promote it, and bash the Republicans as hard-hearted when they oppose it.

Whenever Obama proposes to spend more of our money, I buy gold and silver. I suggest that you do the same.
