gho2t,

“executive order 11110 and HRl207 will never die” 

There never was a silver standard and Nixon took the country off the gold standard—now U.S. currency floats. “Borrow and Spend” increased the money supply past the dollar value of gold reserves, so Nixon took the U.S. off the gold standard to avoid our nation paying the piper, and to allow “Borrow and Spend” to continue.

Doesn’t have to be.  When JFKSchlossberg was born,
Teddy called him “Little John” (of Caroline’s boy)
and said, he’s going to be President.  As to Camelot:
it was my 20s, but it never was Camelot, just in jargon-land.  We did dream BIG though, and some of us are still “at it” as can.
