Re: Inflation vs resources

Agreed that American infrastructure seems dilapidated compared to other countries'. My first scapegoat would be the military-industrial complex. America is a military behemoth and the world's cop. Most of our money goes to defense spending. Compare our defense spending to Germany, France, Spain, et...

Re: Trump Considering Issuance of 50 & 100-Year Bonds

There is something of a precedent for this. Back in the land of long ago Britain used to issue a type of perpetual bond called a consol. The government could legally adjust the interest paid too , although for most of the 18th and 19th centuries they paid a reliable 3%. References to them pop up a ...

Re: Are google sheets prices completely worthless?

Yet another reason to use ETFs instead of physical. The Google sheets quotes for GLD, IAU, GDLM, PHYS, SGOL, etc., are always accurate. :o

Re: The Permanent Supplement Regime

Sophie,

RE: oils & fats.......What is considered bad/good? And is the answer based on published research in, say, NEJM or similar? EV Olive oil is considered good by virtually all sources. But what about:

Butter?
Lard?
Coconut oil?
Palm Oil?
Canola Oil?
Corn Oil?
Soybean ('vegetable') oil?

Re: Forum updates

Maybe it's 150 then? Regardless, it's not 1000 or anything like that.

TLT is kinda nuts. I have a tight trailing stop alarm, I might sell some and try to re-buy it lower... just for fun
Interestingly, Decision Moose switched this weekend from GLD to EDV but, because long bonds are so overbought, deferred to cash.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc. Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans. Ergo, we have a...

Re: color of links in posts

I think there must be a different stylesheet for the mobile version. On desktop, I'm seeing the new colors. On my phone, like Pug, nothing has changed. Will look into it. I just checked and it worked on my mobile after I reset the site settings. I did this on Chrome for Android by clicking the padl...

Pug, hold down shift and click the "reload" button in your browser. You have a cached stylesheet - doing this will force a full reload/invalidate the cache.

Links should be blue then.
Yep, that fixed it. Thanks Xan, and Drumminj, too!
