Banks aren't good. Stock market is on a bubble. Bond markets aren't good (plus, if you hold bonds in a company that Obama has targeted for takeover, you are SOL), real estate is a mess.
My advice would be beans, bullets and bandaids - the "3 b's".
...Or, the three G's, guns, gold & grits.
(btw, the Indians introduced grits to the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock)
