    out of the bank now?

    •  Good question. (6+ / 0-)

      What to do?

      I didn't expect a shutdown. Now I think these tea party thugs wouldn't blink an eye to just go ahead and default. We're dependent on Boehner to be rational and I don't trust him.

      There's something deeply wrong with these people. All of them. Deranged.

        that's what's wrong with them. If anyone is deranged, it's US, for continuing to watch and wait while these fucking extortionists crash and burn what's left of our economy and our President takes the Constitutional remedies out of play.

        What the sainted fuck is it going to take? I saw a tweet by Rev. Jesse Jackson yesterday which stated very simply, "We have got to act".

        And we do.

        This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

      If the government defaults you might need it to heat your house.

      Get $1 ... the bigger stacks will take longer to burn.

      I am a statistician, not a magician although we are easily confused. I guess that explains why people keep trying to tie me in chains and place me under water.

    •  Cash in bank is fine. (0+ / 0-)

      If my entire life savings were in US Treasuries, and I was a non-essential employee of the US government or a contractor entirely dependent on US contracts, I might do some hedging. Otherwise I think you can trust the FDIC and the big banks to take care of you. If they don't, we're in such big trouble that nothing will be safe.
