    That link for the Brief vs Prime to the United States Supreme Court is a VERY important one.

    It inspired me to create a Minimum wage thread which so far as gotten no attention. Im pretty sure at some point down the road a few heavy weights will address that part of the problem in this industry.

    If you don't stand and fix the foundation problems in this industry, it will never change. 50 years from now they will still pay people 0.30 a mile after training at 400 dollars a wekk. IF they meet a certain mileage goal for that week.

    I don't know what bacon will cost in 50 years, but it sure aint gonna be 8.50 on the Customer Price Index moving upwards at 2.0% give or take one per annum. (My disability is raised or not raised according to CPI, I had a 3% increase which is about 18 dollars total a month and I expect another 4% in 2019. In Obama years we had maybe a 2% total increase in 8 years. 6 years of 0% increases. In total my disability has increased about 36% since early 2000's when it was awarded.

    I EXPECT a minimum of mandatory 24% CUT in benefits about 2026. Im already preparing for that eventuality. So when it does happen I will absolutely be profiable. Im already living as if there IS a 24% cut now. Putting the excess into savings. About 8 more years and that cut will happen across the board for ALL SS people. Especially the retirees. I expect to be about 14000 cash into the bank ready for battle when that 2026 comes. A few hundred at a time each month saved right now.

    It's not necessarily in bank account where it can be traced. It sits in my safe with bullion stored in a western state vault paid for with that savings. So at some point, I will have a armored truck delvier my bullion to me. Until that time, it's very secure and aint going anywhere under my name. I pay a small percentage each year for fees.

    It is my hope that the Ratio of Gold to Silver falls from 80:1 down to the natural 15 to 1 if the USA goes back to the Gold Standard that was closed in 1970 and then affirmed closed pernamently quietly in 1974 after the market closed friday night. The expected increase in value will make capital gains a minor annoyance and the rest profit equal to several lifetimes of disability earnings.
