Talk show host Glenn Beck has been encouraging his listeners to rush to Costco and purchase 6 months worth of food and survival staples. He says it will give you a wonderful sense of security. Nevermind the fact that some of your more nefarious neighbors will find out about it and target you for annihilation as soon as disaster hits. So, along with the provisions, you'll have to build a bomb-proof bunker and add the appropriate firepower to protect your stuff.
The current economic trauma is starting a long-needed dialogue about the clear and present (and future) danger of certain financial people playing the greed game.
Too little, too late. See you in the bunker. Hope you like cold cereal and powdered milk.
