The debt, which had been in somewhat of a holding pattern over the past several weeks, rose $238 billion after President Obama signed the debt-ceiling deal into law Tuesday to avoid the country's first-ever default.
The package is designed to carve $2.4 trillion from the deficit over the next decade. But in the near term, it granted Washington an increase in its borrowing authority worth the same amount.

Your dollars are going to go down the tube someday (maybe soon), and a new money system doesn't scare me in the slightest when it comes to the gold and silver issue. It will hold a value. We know this from the passage you posted! :)

I have to disagree with the suggestion not to buy gold and silver right now. I do believe it is on a bubble, but they will continue to go up from here. These prices might not be that bad when the bubble bursts. Also if we are nearing the end of the Dollar that is virtually the only place to put your money that will have value in whatever currency takes it's place. I don't like the prices, but buying when you can should be a something everyone does because there is value there. It is far better than putting your money in the bank and having it be worthless. If the Dollar crashes their will still be value. I am a big fan of silver for the average person. You can buy more and I think it has a long way to rise in value since it hasn't done much in comparison to gold.

My future is secure, because the Lord of Heaven and earth has promised to take personal care that I will have my needs provided. I could flee with only the clothes on my back, secure in the knowledge that God will not let me down.
You can have your silver and gold. I'm not even jealous.
