So the lender of last resort needs to raise money. In between that, and the quickly spreading pig flu, something tells me the Mayans may have been onto something with that 2012 buisness.

So because the IMF is raising money, you want to barricade himself in a fort?

Wake up to yourself, you stupid, paranoid turd.

But my Tactical Shotgun is on order AND one of my pistols is at the manufacturers for repair.

I've got plenty of food and water but no way to protect it from my neighbors.

The BRIC nations want more say in the IMF, since they are being solicited as the source of additional funds.

I don't understand the "bunker" comments -- what's the joke?

FYI, if the IMF gets IBS then you should get to a safe location -- PDQ!

// LOL!

You'll never be able to stockpile sufficient firepower to defend your food and water from your neighbors. The only practical way to ensure peace and safety is to stockpile sufficient food and water to feed everyone in your vicinity.

Oh, I dunno about that. You just need to stockpile sufficiently more firepower than your neighbors to make yourself a less attractive target. And hope the first few weeks thins out the horde to a manageable-enough size by the time they are desperate enough to assail you.

I was thinking, I only need one bullet really. The first neighbor who comes over to steal food gets shot, I dress him in my clothes lay him in the door way (face down) and leave a few twinkie wrappers in the bushes out front. That way people think I've already been robbed.

InferiousX: So the lender of last resort needs to raise money.

Do you think the fact that we're in the middle of an international recession might have something to do with that?

Or to live a long ways from anyone else in an area most would consider uninhabitable.

I guess you guys don't understand.

The IMF gets its money from other countries. Instead of giving money directly to the IMF, some of the major countries of the world (mainly BRIC) asked the IMF to have a bond sale, instead of just giving it outright cash. This give the countries more say in what the IMF does.

That's it, nothing else. This is a non-story.

MAYHEM
But for one thing Mr.Smithee.


MAYHEM turns to ALAN and gives him a long stare. MAYHEM lights a cigarette. He brushes the hair out of his eyes and looks down at his feet.

MAYHEM

U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said that governments "should act quickly" to boost the fund's resources. The Obama administration is seeking approval from Congress to contribute up to $100 billion.

So the USA is gonna borrow $100 Billion from asia to buy bonds from the IMF?

Either I have been working at schools too long or I'm sicker than I thought - that's what I read the headline as originally.
