Can any reasonably intelligent and prudent man be certain nothing serious will happen after December 31, 1999? Would it not be the height of stupidity AND IMPRUDENCE not to take some minimal precaution... just in case? Especially since the cost outlay for some "insurance" is NOT TOO PROHIBITIVE - and within the reach of every family head?
Besides, the "insurance" WILL NOT BE WASTED if the worst fears of the Y2K Concern do not materialize. The "insurance" is STORABLE FOOD, GOLD, READY CASH and, YES, GUNS! Therefore, if the looming Y2K UNCERTAINTY is defused by the 'Bill Gates' of the computer world before Y2K-Day, one may:
- Celebrate by eating the STORABLE FOOD on a picnic;
- Sell the GOLD for dollar bills;
- Spend the CASH buying presents for your wife and kids;
- Keep the GUN for home protection.
Nothing wasted... and you will enjoy the peace of mind in knowing your family is protected. Those who wait till the last minute will inevitably get caught up in a mad scramble… DON'T BE A SCHMUCK, prepare NOW!
Why take the chance?
The Y2K MENACE is NOT the absurd hallucination of ANOTHER crazy kook prophesying the END OF THE WORLD! There is REAL DANGER to the way of life we have become accustomed.
THE Y2K PERIL IS UPON US ALL... the entire world in fact.
Although there are obviously still 17 months before Y2K-Day, there are ALREADY visible threatening signs that public panic is amassing - especially in the USA. Each passing week sees more and more in the media about the Y2K BUG. Just a few weeks ago Citibank, one of the world's largest and most sophisticated banks, publicly announced it had already set aside $600 MILLION to TRY TO MAKE THEIR SYSTEMS Y2K COMPLIANT, BEFORE MID-NIGHT DECEMBER 31, 1999. That's $600,000,000!
Don't tell ME not to worry…
that there's NO POTENTIAL PROBLEM.
The entire GOLD-EAGLE staff and its 64 international analysts - nearly to a man - believe there will be a RUN ON THREE VITAL COMMODITIES during the next 17 months in anticipation of and preparation for impending uncertainties related to the Y2K RISK:
GOLD, GUNS & LONG-TERM STORAGE FOOD.
Perhaps nothing serious will happen… come January 1, 2000. BUT, NO ONE MAY BE SURE OF THIS. Nonetheless, millions of prudent Americans and foreigners will prepare for the worst, while hoping for the best.
We believe any responsible Family Head will want to protect his loved ones by ensuring that a FOOD STOCK IS AT HAND in the event the supply from normal sources is interrupted for a 4-6 week period - due to the dire potential ramifications of the looming Y2K EXPOSURE.
We cannot help but wonder that the wise old saying will be foremost in everyone's mind before too long:
"BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY."
Evidence Y2K Concern Amassing
Although there is still sparse mention of the Millennium Bug in the mainline media (the press is too busy savoring the alleged sexual improprieties and MO of our President), there is indeed a rapidly growing concern amassing in America's heartland.
GOLD-EAGLE's staff has contacted numerous distributors of Long-Term Storage Food and Survival Equipment via telephone and email. The purpose of our contacts was to sell Advertising banners to them - similar to our precious metals related advertising clients. These AD banners would help the distributors market their products, thus increasing their business.
Frankly, distributor responses are startling at best, alarming at worst. Following are a few representative distributor reactions to our AD campaign.
A large mid-western Long-Term Storage Food Distributor said, "he is buried in business." That "he has more than he can handle." Furthermore, he commented in an almost arrogant tone that "he is swamped due to the Y2K panic." The latter are the Distributor's exact words, not ours.
Two other Distributors of Long-Term Storage Food and Survival Equipment relate they "cannot get product in fast enough." They "are having to hire extra people to answer the thousands of phone calls." They "are getting FREE Y2K advertising in newspapers, TV and the net." That "every news story drives more business to them!" In short, BUSINESS IS BOOMING - AND AT RECORD LEVELS!
A few Distributors even BOASTED, "it would be 8 to 12 weeks minimum before they could fill new orders." Moreover, the "companies that make Freeze-Dried food are not able to keep up with accelerating demand."
One regional newspaper had a piece on how the businesses that supply the Amish communities are also drowning in orders. Kerosene lamps, wood burning cookstoves, non-powered tools and implements are all big sellers. Inventories no longer exist… product is IMMEDIATELY 'OUT THE DOOR' to cover back-orders as soon as the store receives it. THE PUBLIC IS STOCKING UP. HOARDING.
FOCUS WILL SOON TURN TO GOLD
Needless to say, as the MILLENIUM BUG picks up moment via the media and/or via word of mouth, public attention will begin to focus on GOLD. Can you imagine what growing demand from grass-root levels will have on the price of the yellow metal, gold coins and precious metals stocks?! Can you imagine the devastation in Wall Street?!
We are NOT just talking US demand, but that of all major countries in the world. Obviously, the Y2K threat promises to menace the entire globe - wherever businesses depend on computers. It is a universal peril.
Ironically, the Amish and others who traditionally shun the conveniences of modern technology - and who depend entirely upon themselves - will be relatively immune to the potential ravages of the MILLENIUM MENACE.
