It's been falling for a while. They've been calling for a correction for a while, and this may be it... I'm not worried.. this country is already a mess....

I am on some gun groups on Facebook. They are starting to shut gun stuff down. I'm on a couple AR-15 sights with over 10,000 members and we are scrambling what to do if those both go dark.

As long as the Fed can still digitalize money from thin air they'll keep it from falling off the cliff. Problem is, the Fed can't do it forever. It's like musical chairs, you never know the music will stop.

I have a retirement plan thru work that is based in the Markets- ( if this isn't the right wording- I apologize- I don't base my getting old and retiring on what it makes or doesn't make) BUT- I get really tempted to take out the Maximum amount of what I am allowed without getting taxed- and paying it back monthly with the actual amount- that way I have the $$ if everything were to go to downstairs in a handbasket-

We took out $40, paid off everything but house, bought daughter a car and put our cars in the shop for a thorough once over and any repairs. We only have house and monthly utilities to pay. I'd have liked to pay the house off but $40 wouldn't have covered it.

I know someone that borrows the max on one of their retirements and buys gold and silver with the money . Says if they should steal his retirement fund some way he still has something and good luck on them collecting on that loan . :D

Yes. Ours works the same. I'd rather pay myself the interest than the bank and the payments are smaller and automatic so there is less going out and I can't forget them.
