    offers a remarkable analysis of how a fiat currency does and can work. I’ll read the article at least twice more.

      Really? If so, bummed bummer!

      What on earth?

      So very sorry to learn this, Jim. It may be “is what it is” but was it a complete surprise?


      • jimhitchcock says:

        Hints big enough to drive tanks through have been getting dropped for quite awhile now. Politically wise I had to deal with some real dumb asses, offended when you don’t buy into their bullshit.

        Fuck ’em, morons need the company of each other to justify their stupidity.

        Damn, do I sound bitter? 🙂

      Oh, NOOOO! Egads! I hope you find something, fast. We peasants can’t afford to miss a paycheck. It’s so hard to catch up.

      Do you think you lost the job over your political opinions?


      • jimhitchcock says:

        Sure, partly, this is Nevada, home to not so bright independent thinkers.

        I kept my opinions low key because of that, but you can only masquerade so much as an an idiot right winger.

        One of the bullshit reasons I was given was that ‘we were waiting to see how the election affected the business’.

        Can you even imagine!

          Get unemployment?


        • jimhitchcock says:

          Dunno, too early to have done research. Not enough for mortgage, though.


        • Den says:

          62 or more years old?


        • Den says:

          Dang, a year too early for SS. That’s what happened to me, bought a house, 10 months later I was laid off, then picked up another job after running out of unemployment, that lasted 2 years then, layed off again, no mortgage money meant a call to my RE agent. I had some bank money to get by till the house sold but it was damn close. Once the house sold I made money on the sale but had to move. Downsized to a newer double wide in a halfway decent (no crackheads) park with the house proceeds, just the monthly park rent and insurance, $700/month, but I got SS to save me, still I’m spiraling down slowly needing a job to fill the gap. I thought at first you could grab SS too 😦 in addition to unemployment, at least you could hunt for more work in the meantime, hafta work fast, get a good RE agent see what you can sell for, if you have to bail, list sooner rather than later if job prospects are bad, best to find work, you know what you need for income, if you find work all is well, take a couple days for the shock to wear off first, ck unemployment tomorrow, stop spending any unnecessary money. You can use charge cards to pay bills if you know your house would sell fast, (<6mos) you could pay them off with the proceeds so at least your credit wouldn't be trashed.

          Hang in there!
