The Department of Treasury has put out an ad for survival kits for all of its employees who oversee the federal banking system. The question is wtf? – by Rodney Lee Conover
Contracts for survival kits are usually made for the military, or law enforcement such as the FBI. But for some reason, the Treasury thinks bankers are in special need of survival in the near future…
