it's sad...

reading the comments on that article. The ignorance is astounding. I read them trying oh so hard to be smart / witty / funny and make comments about "Even Bennie B says Gold isn't money..." and "fine, give him 3.5 ounces of gold each year and tell him he's paid in full, and watch what happens when gold crashes".

Sigh.

I'd LOVE it if someone offered to give me 3.5 ounces of gold each year vs the fiat that it's equivalent to "today". I'd take that gamble any time. You can always convert a bit of silver or gold to current "fiat" if you need to in a pinch, but I'd match up that silver or gold against the paper dollar in 5 or 10 years, and see which did better. My "money" is on silver and gold. ;)
