I was rethinking my post the other day on investing and realized copper is perhaps another metal one might want to invest in to ride out the Hard Times ahead. Unlike gold and silver, copper doesn't have to be a sterile investment. Certain forms of copper can produce a pretty high return on your initial investment.
These nice country boys mention Colonel Vaughn Wilson, whose stills can be ordered at Copper Moonshine Stills. Not that I would ever recommend buying such a thing, unless you want the BATFE to kick in your door with a SWAT team on the mere suspicion that you might not be paying your fair share of federal liquor taxes... after all, that is the only reason distilling is illegal; it's a holdover from Prohibition.
