One more time... It's not how many dollars you accumulate, it's what they can buy. And if you've accumulated lots of dollars, better get them into other things, because they're becoming worthless, and fast.
Ben Bernanke is a traitor to America. His shameful bailout of mortgage gamblers (banks, hedge funds, traders) screwed poor and middle-class America by wiping out the value of their savings and purchasing power of their dollars. And when the government reports their bogus inflation numbers (excluding food and energy of course), and Bernanke cuts rates again, remember to ask yourself why you believe in that dollar in your pocket. Because you shouldn't.
