Breaking News: Gold is Not Money

Ron Paul wants the definition of money from Ben Bernanke, watch ZB squirm as he attempts to define it. After watching him practically snoring as Dr Paul launches into the gold rant (poor Bernanke, it must have boiled his blood to have to sit through a whole minute of that), of course.
Bernanke actually said "consumers don't want to buy gold, they want to buy food and gasoline and clothes and all the other things that are not in the consumer basket." Too bad when the Fed comes up with a magical number for inflation they somehow cross out food and gasoline because, well, maybe the consumer doesn't want those or maybe they are just too volatile to end up making their math make sense.
Now listen, we know gold isn't technically money. But try telling that to the assholes who keep stuffing my mailbox with their cash for gold flyers.
Who says consumers don't want to buy gold? Gold does, for one.
