Re: The GOLD scream room

One could even argue that at 7.5% you are at the very low end in terms of holding a slice of an asset that can really drive your portfolio forward when it is time for that asset to perform. Maybe ask yourself what the impact to your portfolio would be if gold were to, say, quadruple in price over a...

Re: The GOLD scream room

$14M in the bank, and you still come on here to make the rest of us miserable? Come on, man, have a little decency. If you're going to come on here, bring some kind of uplifting quote about the rewards of working hard or living in a great country or something. No, all he has to share is bile and sp...

Re: The GOLD scream room

We’ve been on the same hopium for a while now. Even if equities tanked 100% I would still be way ahead of my gold position. Big mistake! So if your stocks went down to 0 that would still be better than gold? Wow, that is terrible! Yup, and since your buy you’ve stunk it up...too bad. Yet my 70/30 i...

Re: More Than Half of Millenials Expect to Be Millionaires

It never even occurred to me that moving back in with my parents after graduating college was an option. They didn't really want me there, and I had even less desire to stay. I lived with my mother for about 6 months after leaving college (1 course short, so I didn't graduate for a couple more year...

Re: Flying !st class with a free upgrade?

Anybody visited the website flyer talk.com? It was recommended on Bobleheads. I just started a perusal late last night. Finally, over the last year, I found some benefit at the website thepointsguy.com. Any thoughts? Flyertalk.com is great. That's my go-to for EVERYTHING about miles and points. I h...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

This article provides a good summation of the evidence behind the IG report's farcical finding of "no political bias." It's utterly astounding. https://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/terence-p-jeffrey/fbi-employee-fbi-attorney-russia-investigation-you-promised-trump The most surprising thing about al...

Re: The Psychology of Money

I have a much simpler solution: parents pay for their children's education. What if they can't afford to? Or choose not to? Isn't it better for society to have everyone educated? When and where I grew up, the prevailing thought seemed to be that the children paid for their own education, perhaps wi...

Re: The Psychology of Money

Dude, if the $12,000 RE taxes are a third of your spending in retirement, you're not spending enough. My goal is not to leave a huge inheritance for my kids. Something, sure, but they can bust heir own asses like I did. Yes, but think of all he gets for that $12k! There's, um, hmm, I'm pretty sure ...
