I note that the FDIC is ridiculously underfunded. Can't get blood from a turnip. You could print more, but we know where that goes.
I note that while we have a defense department that seems at least to support a lot of large defense contractors, and theoretically my stuff, we also have civil asset forfeiture so bad that last year it exceeded all losses by theft and burglary - 4.7 vs 4.2 billion bucks. (!)
So yes, it's good to have non money assets and especially ones that are NOT liquid enough to be desireable for thieves in uniforms to steal.
This is probably not the right thread to discuss this, but I was reacting to the "OMG, no backup - what an idiot" for something a lot less meaningful to most than "my next meal/rent or my kid's next doctor appointment".
Seemed kinda silly in terms of getting priorities straight.
