Re: WiFi Extender?

Metal interferes with wifi. If the device is in a closed panel, presumably metal, it will probably never work. Try it with the door open? Or try a directional antenna and aim it directly at the device.

Re: Dollar Milkshake Brent Johnson throwing nod to Permanent Portfolio

I always figured he took his dollar milkshake theory from Harry Browne. Looks my suspicions were correct. Harry explained in his radio shows that gold is a competing currency to the dollar. When inflation hits, first the dollar goes up. Only with sustained inflation of something that hurts people li...

Re: What polcies can be done to prevent mass shootings

Also abortion has never been regarded by any laws as equivalent to the murder of a child. Yes, if the abortion had not occurred then there would be the resultant birth of a child. However, until that child is officially born then that "child" is not yet a child. What is your basis for those stateme...

I think the profile is fairly well known...social isolation with a grudge of one sort or another seems to be a huge part of it. More complicated than that.

Re: What polcies can be done to prevent mass shootings

Everyone in 1776 knew that a government with a military 100% of the time turns against the population. The United States should not have a standing army. No Army, No Marines, No Navy, No Air force, No National Guard. There should only be the Coast Guard, and state sponsored militias. The military i...

Re: What polcies can be done to prevent mass shootings

I agree, If this is about saving lives, then cars are much more violent than guns. Car violence must be stopped. Perhaps we need common sense speed limits like a national 35mph limit. Create red flag laws and institute universal driving tests. If it prevents one death its worth it. No body needs to ...

The second amendment is clear, there should be no federal laws pertaining to arms, period. Most states also have their version of the 2A.

Re: Gutters advice needed!

Look into getting a french drain installed where those gullies are forming, it will capture the water where it naturally flows and get it away from the house. When they're installed properly they're a water barrier. If you did a french drain and gutters you could connect the gutter downspout to an u...

I'm looking at a market crash ahead. Which asset in the PP will save us? Also, any non PP assets, possibly like TBT?
The cash. In a market crash people sell everything. I use VXX as a play on volatility for when I think they'll be some fireworks.

I don't see it as the everything bubble, I see it as the dollar bubble. Everything can't be in a bubble, there has to be something out of favor.

Re: Libertarians and property

There is always a single arbiter. Each party consents to the arbiter instead of being forced by the government monopoly. To play devil's advocate, isn't that effectively what we currently have?
