Ownership of gold

Reader comment on: Weiner, Waxman Set Gold Hearing

Submitted by J.Johnson (United States), Sep 16, 2010 17:05

Let us not forget that it was President-for-life Franklin D. Roosevelt who took the U.S. off the gold standard and made it illegal for private citizens to posses gold, except for jewelry and collectables. I have no doubt whatever that fools like Weiner would not hesitate to re-establish the ban on monetary gold if they could. Already they have enacted legislation that establishes a new reporting requirement on gold coin sales/ownership so the feds will know who owns what. If gold is actually in a bubble, you would think Weiner would encourage conservatives to buy a lot of it so that, when the bottom falls out, they will be poorer.
