Last-Minute Stocking-Stuffer Idea!

Our guest columnist must have had an awesome backyard fallout shelter.

When the New Money is imposed, every American family must have a Survival Kit of highly liquid, small-denomination silver and gold coins for hand-to-hand use in an emergency.

The Ron Paul Survival Kit — now an industry standard — comes in an official World War II U.S. Army Ammo-Holder. Warning: do not keep this in a bank, but only where you can get to it during a bank holiday.

Contents: 1,000 silver dimes; 400 silver quarters; 200 silver half dollars; 20 silver dollars; 20 Silver Eagles; five $5 Gold Eagles; and one $10 Gold Eagle.

The Ron Paul Surivial Kit: $1,675.

All my years of playing Fallout taught me that Ring Pull Tabs off soft drink cans is the REAL currency of the apocalypse.

Seriously, what a fucking rip off. 1675 for 500 bucks worth of fancy change? Rather spend that 1675 on a slightly wild weekend in Vegas.

I’d rather get this survival kit:
“Survival kit contents check. In them you’ll find: one forty-five caliber automatic; two boxes of ammunition; four days’ concentrated emergency rations; one drug issue containing antibiotics, morphine, vitamin pills, pep pills, sleeping pills, tranquilizer pills; one miniature combination Russian phrase book and Bible; one hundred dollars in rubles; one hundred dollars in gold; nine packs of chewing gum; one issue of prophylactics; three lipsticks; three pair of nylon stockings. Shoot, a fella’ could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff. “

@ManchuCandidate: How long was your pull-tab chain? I think I made it to four feet.

Virtual pull tab chain… 16000 or so.

I always thought my plasma rifle was more important though,

Somebody on the left should totally riff on this – maybe a “Ron Paul 2012 Survival Kit” that includes a breathing mask, a water filter, 10 pounds of asphalt and a Jr. Deputy badge… :)

Are they all grifters? Is this why he runs? Is this why they all run? To up speaking fees and shift product?

@Benedick: I think Mittens truly wants to rule the world and Crazy Eyes is listening to the voices in her head. Otherwise, grifters all (and they probably consider their highest calling).

@ManchuCandidate: The “fucking rip off” as you so eloquently put it, would be worth about ten thousand dollars today in melt value for silver and gold. Feel free to google coinflation to confirm. Those poor fools that got ripped off and made six times their money…. good thing you are far too smart for that eh?

@Recluce: A new Paultard! Huzzah! How much is a Bircher worth these days? Is coinflation a real word outside of BunkerTown found on Niggerhead Lake? Should your name be “Relucre”? How’s Glenn Beck’s asshole?
