Treasury whines about cost of Ron Paul's proposed Fort Knox audit

The Treasury document says it would cost about $15 million to conduct an audit. The process would take about 30 minutes to verify the gold content of each bar, or 350,000 man hours; to do that would would take 400 people working for six months, according to the document.

$15 million??? Are you kidding me??? The Fed is printing $2.5 billion a day. That's less than nine minutes of Fed printing. The Federal government spends $3.5 trillion a year. $15 million is less than a minute and a half of government spending. Obama's Porkulus was $800 billion. $15 million is less than 0.002% of Porkulus.

And 400 people working for six months sounds like shovel-ready jobs to me. Wasn't the Obama Administration for stimulus before they were against it?

It would take less than one day, since the gold is either gone, stolen by those 'Too Big to Fail" Wall Street gangsters and the Fed--who's using it for collateral to back up all the funny money they've been printing--or it has been replaced by lead bars painted gold.

For them to bitch this much about a simple audit tells me something's fishy.

If this audit gains any traction, better hold on to your cell phone cameras, and get ready to document another 9/11 FALSE FLAG/INSIDE JOB to distract us sheeple.

No wonder the Zionist MSM has been blabbing almost non-stop about Anthony's wiener and that poor dead Casey kid.
