Banning Precious Metal Exports - Beginnng of a Trend?

Egypt has banned exports of gold, including jewelry and ornaments, until June 2011 according to Reuters. The reason given for the decision was to "preserve the nation's  wealth until the situation stabilizes." This ban will prevent government officials and industry leaders who acquired the gold illegally from leaving the country with the gold. Notice how fiat currency can still be taken out, but gold can not. It is gold that preserves wealth, not paper fiat money.

Why TSA Groping and Radiating are a Fraud

These videos show what a farce the groping and radiating at the airports are. If the Army is using these dogs to find explosives for themselves, why not use dogs at airports to find explosives for the general population? And simple metal detectors for everything else?

The simple answer is: TSA airport procedures are not about security but rather controlling and intimidating the population to be subservient to the Homeland Security apparatchiks and the Federal Government "Apparatus."

Currencies Pegged to the US Dollar

A currency pegged to the dollar means that there is a set or fixed rate of exchange between that currency and the USD. What this means for you, the traveler, is that you can be fairly certain that when you arrive in that country, your USDs can be exchanged for the same amount as when you departed. The exchange rate is more stable than those currencies that are allowed to float according to market demand and supply relationships. This fixed rate is great for planning for those travelers on a tight budget.
