Re: Syria

We cant get correct info about most geopolitical situations. Wish we could. So I dont feel a moral obligation to have an opinion on Palestine for example I dont mind that the global police force is employed by us, though.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

doodle, the trumpsters/goldbugs/libertarians like that he's (unintentionally) increasing government dysfunction and making it harder for gov to do anything (like "regulate," tax them, take their guns n'gold). When someone's doing something you like, cognitive dissonance prevents you from admitting t...

Re: Ukranian phone call

Whats funny about human nature is we act outraged when an injustice to Our Guy happens, but would be fine with impeachment even if facts had to be "stretched a little." People cant admit that when it suits them, two wrongs make a right. Is the rest o...

Re: Treasury Yield Curve - June 3 2019

NIRP is good, means there's a savings glut. Japan/germany are rich countries with a high quality of life. Dont be mad cuz you cant have the risk free return that you used to get with high population growth

Re: Gold / Stock / Bonds at highs or near highs?

I started the PP just before Trumps election and EDV got crushed by the inflation expectations Yeah everything looks expensive right now, but long term rates will probably go lower just like the rest of the world.

Re: How many brokerage firms are you using?
