Re: Are We Living Under Communism?

Has it already happened? It seems that our elections are stolen, the media is Pravda, and the DOJ/FBI/CIA/NSA are all politicized. Is all lost? We still have firearms but that's about it. Notice you will almost never hear a politician refer to the country as a Republic? It's always a "democracy". S...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

If you go to liberal news sites like CNN and MSNBC you get all kinds of stories about unvaccinated people dying of COVID, especially if they were anti-vaxxers. If you go to conservative sites like Breitbart or Revolver you get all kinds of stories about people dying after taking the vaccine plus fu...

I was thinking about your troubles with the masking rules at your kid's school, jalanlong. I'm thinking that the answer to all of this is to end the monopoly of government-run schools. All schools should be private. The state government can set some dollar amount that is attached to the kid to be s...

But also be prepared for some segment of the population to continue wearing masks, or not going out to eat, or to bars, or whatever. Their choice.
The only thing in that entire post that made sense.
I hope this is true because it helps identify the whack jobs to stay away from.

Re: Should we limit price increases?

Inflation is at a healthy number a small bit above 2% which is a good thing because it was unhealthily below 2% for many years so this averages it out to the 2% goal.

If charitable contributions were not just deductible but instead dollar for dollar credits......the only people in poverty in the US would be their by choice. Welfare could be eliminated overnight along with 90% of the redistribution schemes.

I'll try to keep you informed KS. You need to check the deals around 11 AM EST on Mondays.

Was actually 5.7% over spot, about the same as a 1,000 oz bar.

I haven't seen anything this good in a year. 6% over spot on 1oz rounds. 12% is what passes for a good deal nowadays.

SD, There’s been a lot of research on growth versus value. I think it is accurate to say, that there is serious debate as to whether or not value investing is actually even a thing.

Value vs growth

S&P growth and value funds tracked very closely until a few years ago when growth started going parabolic.

VUG has a PE of 40 and div of 0.5% VTV has a PE of 17ish and div of 2.1%

Anyone swapping their stocks for straight value funds right now?
