Listen to the man responsible for more global economic destruction than Stalin claim central banks hold gold because it is a tradition.
Ron Paul makes Bernanke look like a total idiot (which he is) as he pounds him with a series of questions about the value of gold as a money.
Ron Paul: Is gold money?
Terrorist Bernanke: ….*stares blankly into space*…”no.”
If the financial terrorists are holding gold out of “tradition”, then I suppose it would be no big deal if the congress ordered the Fed to give all of its ill-gotten gold holdings back to the public.
Of course, Bernanke would never do such a thing because he knows the dollar is about to have less value than a roll of toilet paper. Actually, the dollar is already less valuable than a roll of toilet paper. DAMN IT! I can’t even make jokes about this crap any more!
