  1. Way to go Jack! Outstanding podcast! This was reminiscent of some of your earlier episodes. It’s good to see some continuity from one podcast to another over the last few weeks.

    Keep up the great work!

  2. Great show! I love Jack’s perspective on things like this.

  3. Political Atheist

    another great show Jack. frankly, I don\’t know how anyone can\’t see how economic/political analysis isn\’t important to the prepper community. I mean how the heck do they think we GOT to the point where we need to be prepping in the first place? Its certainly not the result of fiscal responsibility and excellent stewardship of this country.

  4. It is clear that our president and Bernake should both share the Nobel price in physics (and of course economics), in addition to the peace prize. Why? They must have jointly discovered the secrets of perpetual motion – it’s the only possible way that they could be powering the money presses to allow for money to be printed at the rate it’s being done in our country.
