Re: Want to lose weight & treatment for diabetes

To use Jordan Peterson's language, Sophie is at the top of the dominance hierarchy on this forum in regards to health knowledge. She's my go-to girl for this kind of stuff! O0 I would agree on all parts of your statement except to assume Sophie’s gender. On one hand, it’s incorrect to assume gender...

Re: Why the Allies Won

Neo-Nazis are alive and well. I do get concerned though that people on the left have a tendency to label people as "Nazis" just because they don't support democratic socialism, full on CRT, or other entities along those lines. This downplays the severity of what the Nazis actually did and basically ...

Re: Lives Saved Since March 2020?

Re: Finding Stuff To Make You Angry?

Almost no American history is taught to us Canadians in our public high schools. There is some, but you would typically only get American history exposure if you specifically started to major in history. The default history education we get is in our "social studies" classes which definitely focuses...

Yeah, it was definitely about slavery. Although it wasn't about full on emancipation till its later stages.
The South went to war to preserve slavery. The North went to war to preserve the Union. Emancipation was just a political tool for the North to achieve that goal.
Yeah.

I think in many cases the question is irreconcilable because we don't all share the same financial value structure.
Objectively speaking though, I think that bitcoin having value in any sense of the word is more true than not true.
I agree.

Re: I think it’s time to move into crypto

The argument of an asset not having "intrinsic value" is very frequently cited as a rationale for not investing in an asset. It's a nuanced idea, but I also think it's too liberally applied. I've seen gold being argued as having no intrinsic value because it doesn't produce cash flow. Cryptocurrenci...

Re: Does PP Only Work In Times of Declining Bond Yields?

I suppose we need to define what we really mean by "work". I think the PP could suffer greatly if rates rise precipitously without the incredible rise in the gold price like in the 70s. No portfolio is truly immune to every possible economic outcome, but certainly some are better than others. I thin...

I wish more members thought like this! The trick to investing in bitcoin long term is to dabble in alt coins.
