This is one of these things being sent around the internet. Received this email from a neighbor. The sad part, it's not really a joke but might be prophetic. I might add that "president" should have been included.
Thought I' d pass along some advice my broker gave me today .
I called my stockbroker this morning & asked him what I should
be investing in as I feel interest rates are going to be rising as they
did during the late 70 s early 80 s. So I told him I thought we ought to
be looking to getting out of bonds & looking for a safe haven to invest.
Should we move to precious metals, foreign currency or what?
He said to me, "If the current Congress is in office much longer, canned goods, water and ammunition are your best bet."
