Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Makes sense. Yeah, so many European languages have the you-plural. We lost our Ye at some point. Actually "you" was the you-plural. I think "ye" was a form of it... Perhaps the vocative? "Oh come all ye faithful". It's the thee's and thou's and thine's, the singulars, which we sadly dropped. Y'all ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Don, get over it. Seriously. I honestly don't understand why you are assigning the worst possible motivations to us in all of this. Budd had been acting like a jerk for a long time, through many warnings, and finally asked to be banned. (Well, he asked for his account to be deleted, and then asked t...

Re: Tax accounting for physical metals

I don’t need tax advice. I know how to calculate the taxes on each transaction. What I need is an inventory program to keep track of the basis for each lot of each item, e. g. I have 3 lots of 100g bars with 2 bars in the first lot, 4 bars in the second, and 3 bars in the third. The basis is $1800 ...

Re: Tax Loss Harvesting Support Group

That's definitely an interesting idea, though arguably you have less left/invested after paying the taxes, no? So while you may avoid that 25% tax rate, you likely have less gains in the end? Not arguing against, just thinking through the strategy. Personally my biases align with avoiding future ta...

Re: bud split

It's heartwarming to learn that this is still a place where deletionists and inclusivists can put their differences aside and befriend each other. I'm not sure where everybody stands in the Big Endian vs Little Endian debate (either in the Swiftian sense or the computer architecture sense), but it's...

Re: The GOLD scream room

So freedom of speech means nothing to you? "Hey, I don't like what that guy's saying. Let's ban him. "Here, here!" Can't please everyone, I guess. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_miller,_his_son_and_the_donkey Don, the ban was Budd's idea. Take it up with him if you'd like. Your characterization ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Budd was banned for expressing his honest opinion. That banning is crap. Nah. Budd both figuratively and literally asked to be banned. I support Xan. Ban all speech that we disagree with. That's so leftist these days. And pathetic. Don, this was not at all about disagreeing. I've said over and over...

Some more crap I’m not going to read... Good luck to you and remember I was once like you. You’ll come around just like every intelligent person before you already has. You can number crunch all you like (remember I am in analytics and do this all day) but back-testing has no predictive value whats...

Re: The GOLD scream room

It’s a constant reminder of how pathetic gold is and to a larger extent the PP as a whole. Just about any other allocation would have you miles ahead of a 4x25 allocation. Don’t be bitter tech, you’re negative again YTD but you should be used to it by now. Down again today, WOW what a SURPRISE How ...

Re: Notre Dame

I hope connections to the other churches burned in France since the mass immigration are not found. I'm assuming we're all in agreement that the truth should be found, whatever it is. I'm all for hoping it was an accident. From everything I'm hearing, that seems to be the story. If that isn't the c...
