18. I have my last house for sale, I'm a late boomer
The others sold to get child custody after a divorce, injury, etc
The point is, very little money is left. I bought gold when it was $700+ to hedge. Got ridiculed for it too.

I'll get what I can -if I can even sell. And we'll leave the country. I figure it will get pretty damn ugly here, in the absence of opposition to corporatism. Look at Argentina and Central America and then picture the rednecks with guns in place of quick to sing and dance brown people.
