Re: Texas Bullion Depository Open for Business

I don't know one half of 1% seems expensive to me. It's cheaper to get a safe deposit box and insure it. Plus the safe deposit box can be close to your home or far away whatever you want. Leander is a long drive for me. +1 I'd also add that this is inside the US and it is a quasi government entity....

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

Seen on twitter: Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib recently had dinner with a Palestinian activist who called Samir Kuntar — a terrorist who smashed the skull of a four-year-old Israeli girl after murdering her father — a "legendary Hezbollah martyr." https://twitter.com/ShaiDeLuca/status/108523603943274...

Re: Texas Bullion Depository Open for Business

If anyone happens to contact them, ask if there's an ETA: "The depository will offer a pooled method for storing gold or other precious metals in the future." There is no precise ETA but they suggested it would be sometime in the relatively near future. The specific purpose for the pooled method is...

Re: Krugman on taxes

Oh, that's obvious. Anyone who is against either of those is obviously a Nazi! (Note: this is sarcasm.) Pretty odd sarcasm for someone who labelled folks who advocate high tax rates on the wealthy as "communists." Or was that sarcasm towards capitalists? Cuz I know a lot more capitalists that call ...

Re: Texas Bullion Depository Open for Business

I have opened an account with them and will be transferring gold from Global Gold.
The yearly cost is about the same but I will get segregated storage instead of collective, and the cost to buy or sell should be considerably less.
It's also a lot closer to home and you can even visit it!

Re: Krugman on taxes

It's my opinion, too. As it is the majority of people's opinions everywhere. But regardless, even if it's your right to go into another country to seek work, it is not your right to then ask for handouts. It's of the majority of people's opinions everywhere that the super-wealthy should be taxed at...

Re: Krugman on taxes

Exactly. What Krugman seems to be saying is that anyone who he defines as "rich" or that Moda would describe as "wealthy" is sufficiently morally repugnant that "the rest of us" (whoever that is) should have no qualms about relieving them of as much of their money as possible. The only question is ...

Re: Krugman on taxes

Pretty much what the fou nders intended. I think the bigger issue than quibbling about specific tax rates rates is the philosophy that people's incomes are just there for government to help themselves to the "optimal" amount. "All we should care about is how much revenue we raise." hmm. Exactly. Wh...

Re: Krugman on taxes

I don't think an inheritor of billions is "morally repugnant," but I do believe they should pay a pretty fat tax bill if we're going to have a government protecting their wealth among other things. yes if government is going to protect their wealth by taking it, they should take as much as they pos...

Re: "The Big Bang Theory" TV show

A thought as this show ends soon: The show has had astro-physicists Steven Hawking, Neil DeGrasse-Tyson and George Smoot, all PhDs, by the way, making cameo appearances. With the November release of "Bohemian Rhapsody," the movie about Freddie Mercury and "Queen," I note that guitarist Brian May co...
