"If you're not buying gold and silver bullion in times like these, then you're a moron! Moron!"
"Round up the Keynesian trash infesting the economic system! It is they who have commanded the Federal Reserve to flood the economy with excess cash and credit, lo these many decades! Haul their worthless carcasses to a dank and dreaded dungeon! Then gloriously back, back, back to the blissful happiness of a stable money-supply, guaranteed by the gold standard! And then Very Bad Things (VBT) like these will never, ever, ever, never in a million, jillion years, happen again!"
"I hate your guts because you are always touting gold and silver, and (pick one: I, my mother, a sibling, a distant relative, a friend, a neighbor, people I vaguely know, people I heard about, complete strangers, dead people) idiotically followed your stupid advice, and have lost money the whole time!"And don't," they usually continue, "give me/us/them a lot of explanatory crap about the evil Federal Reserve creating the oceans of cash and credit that created the unsustainable bubbles in stocks, bubbles in bonds, bubbles in houses, bubbles in debt, and bubbles in sizes of governments, and that the reason that gold and silver are NOT reacting like they should in the face of such incomprehensible monetary and fiscal insanity is because the greedy, evil Federal Reserve and the corrupt-to-the-core government actually admitted that they control all the markets (which they are allowed to do, according to corrupt laws the corrupt government passed to allow them to do illegal things!!!). because that is just too, too complicated!"
