Re: Gold to bounce soon?

I nibbled today. I’m buying EEM instead; we’re both in the same boat waiting for the USD to drop. Good luck DS! Did the USD just drop? Was watching Fox Business and noticed in the ticker that gold was up $20 at the time. Strangely, stocks were also up and setting all time highs, and bond yields wer...

Re: More on Broken Health Care

I have a prescription for some psoriasis medicine that runs something like $700/bottle (fortunately it lasts a long time). I was therefore glad that my copay was only $25 and I even got it for free a lot of times with some coupons. It went generic last year so I was expecting the price to go down si...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

I have gone from wanting him to drain the swamp, to voting for him, to cringing at tweets, to yelling at the TV, and finally just wanting him to go back home and let somebody else do this job. This is a non-stop reality show nightmare. <snip> I am more frustrated with his supporters than with Trump...

Re: Interventionism versus non-interventionism

When it comes to the idea of fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them here, I'm just thankful that most of the rest of the world doesn't think the way we do - an exception being the 9/11 terrorists of course. In the Book "Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides", there is...

Re: Gold to bounce soon?

Why do we want Gold to go up (serious question)? Are we thinking about this the wrong way? What is the impact to our daily lives if Gold doubles? Well, I think we definitely want it to go up if everything else is going down, which is basically why I thought we held it. But generally speaking, a hig...

Re: Gold to bounce soon?

An article about Elizabeth Warren's "Accountable Capitalism Act". I tend to think that if it had any chance of passing or if it even looks like Ms Warren has any chance of being elected president in 2020, gold will do much more than just "bounce". https://www.nationalreview.com/2018/08/elizabeth-war...

Re: Better Call Saul

Man, it's been a long time. Stay tuned for season 4, beginning this Monday night. O0 Finally our long wait is over. I recorded the 5 minute teaser on Saturday night. Don't want to spoil it if you didn't see it but if the teaser is telling us what to expect in the opener, Chuck and Jimmy's relations...

Ah yeah, my bad. For some reason that read as Harvard Law to me. Regardless, my point stands. It's not a secret if you talk about it.
Well, if any burglar is monitoring this thread - maybe I really am a Harvard Law graduate.

Re: Interventionism versus non-interventionism

The idea that "we have to fight them over there so we don't have to fight them over here" took hold for good and refuses to let go. Anyone who says the above disparagingly has never actually been in a war zone. Well, I spent 12 months in a war zone and saw nothing that convinced me of the truth of ...

Why isn't anyone whining that all 3 assets are in the same direction (UP) today? :D
Human nature is weird, isn't it?

Re: Better Call Saul

Man, it's been a long time. Stay tuned for season 4, beginning this Monday night. O0 Nothing to match it on TV since the "The Americans" season finale - though Amazon Prime's "Goliath" comes close. Speaking of which (Amazon Prime originals) - I just noticed that "The Man in the High Castle" next se...
