Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

"Support" can be a misleading term. It's not "moral support." It's not selling weapons or allowing the sale of weapons. It's literal military support... "The Americans are providing targeting intelligence and refueling Saudi warplanes involved in bombing rebel positions." I saw that. I would be wil...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Nothing in that article suggests Trump has committed a war crime. Also it's from when Obama was in office (OCT 2016), not Trump. EDIT: just re-read it and saw the part about drone strikes. BTW I found the post I was referencing here . You said war-mongering not war-criming (Scott Horton did). Yemen ...

Re: The GOLD scream room

I had the same philosophy when I was hyper-accumulating (TRIPLE TWINS). I think MMM and Jacob Lund Fisker both wrote about how having a high savings rate is much more important than investment returns. the best is do both... a high savings rate is you working for your money , while the investment r...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

The overall atmosphere of meekness and supplication was mostly what triggered my revulsion response. Bret Weinstein kinda said the same thing here, at 7:55 in. And the switchboard conversation highlighted it too. It sounded like even the police were hunkered down in their station behind locked doors...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Also, for a hyper-accumulator like me, that is investing over 50% of their income every year, it can be very stressful investing that amount of money in a highly volatile portfolio. It's not as painful for someone that's only contributing the standard 15% with many years left before retirement. But...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Didn't we go over this in another thread? IIRC you were accusing Trump of war crimes because an American company sold a bomb to Saudi Arabia that they dropped on a school bus. That's not Trump committing a war crime.

Re: Permanently low interest rates

I remember reading an interesting idea in Korten's When Corporations Rule The World where he proposed (IIRC) requiring companies to distribute x% of profits as dividends. I wonder if that's a better scenario for corporations than one where they have the option to buy back shares.

;D

I don't give a SHIT about crowd-sourced reviews like that. It amazes me that the people who put them together are unicorns buying houses in San Francisco (where their neighbors can give them shit).

Remade as an 80s song. Fantastic. His Ariana Grande is spot on too. I like the video backgrounds 8)

Re: Easter message for Central Bankers

Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesian...
