The Buck Ended Here

The following list comes from an article on At the risk of causing “prepper fatigue”, it is important to stay informed and be prepared.

Gold is hitting new highs as fast as the national debt increases: that is the consequence of a devalued US dollar.

Harry Truman said “The Buck Stops Here“. Obama says “The Buck Ended Here“.

Although the list pertains to the economy, if the violent flash mob attacks across the country continue, this may top the list since most people have traded security for freedom.
