Re: Budget Deficits

Keep that gold close, my friends. Keep the gold close, and the lead closer. That's the best prepper tagline I've ever heard. You'd better copyright that before someone takes it! ;D LOL. The funny thing is the timing. I think at the latest, when the first Millennials start to retire, that will be th...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Economic Club of NY today: "Trump rails on Fed, notes other countries have negative rates: ‘Give me some of that money’ What a d*ck.
