    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    I wouldn't worry about something that hasn't happened and may not even happen. Live in the moment. Worrying about what might happen only leads to more anxiety.

    No don't you get it the banking system is tied all together, and the value of the dollar has no backing.

    United States Government (USG) became bankrupt and began using citizens as collateral in trade agreements with foreign governments.

    the us dollar has had no backing since the 60's. removing the backing started in the 30's.
    bpcookie replied to 2ndchance's response:
    The value of the dollar is worthless and has been worthless for quite some time. Want my advice? Buy commodities, Gold, Silver, Copper and Platinum. If the system ever breaks down and your left standing in the street with a check book but no bank, then at least you will have something thats worth...uuummm....something.
