    If you do nothing else in the next few days, please watch this video.
    Let me say up front that ultimately this guy wants to sell you something,
    and it is rather long. But it is chock full of outstanding information that
    affects YOU and YOUR PERSONAL FINANCES immensely.

    You can make your own assessment of how bad and how soon to panic,

    Please note that this is an unusual ‘player’ – it is not YouTube. It is not
    easy to tell how far along you are or to control it very much. But if you
    need to pause, to answer the phone or something, just click in the
    presentation area. You can click again to make it continue.
