Re: Tesla Motors

I've heard nice things about their cars, BUT... Their business model does not impress. I have lost confidence in their management, one in particular and would not consider buying on a speculative basis while that individual is still prominently involved with the company's management. They have serio...

Re: Immediate 5% across-the-board Mexican tariffs

I think a plausible argument could be made that this is the most incompetent president in US history. He is certainly the most corrupt.

Dispatch From Cop Planet

The woke world is a world of snitches, informants, rats. Go to any space concerned with social justice and what will you find? Endless surveillance. Everybody is to be judged. Everyone is under suspicion. Everything you say is to be scoured, picked over, analyzed for any possible offense. Everyone’...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Guys, it's one day of a one week pull back. Your expectations are ridiculous. Gold is not going to go up every day or week that stocks are down. They are UNcorrelated not negatively correlated. I think the root of the frustrations with gold on this board are that people have unrealistic expectation...

The French Crime of 1873: An Essay on the Emergence of the International Gold Standard, 1870–1880

This article attempts to provide a new view of how the bimetallic standard was maintained before 1873 and how it came to change into a monometallic gold standard between 1870 and 1880. The conventional view that the gold standard emerged out of the contradictions of bimetallism is not persuasive. I...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

In the United States an annual income of $18k is on the low end of working class. That doesn't mean you can't make do on that. A lot depends on where your priorities in life are. My time in the Navy taught me how little I really needed and still remained fairly happy. There is definitely more to lif...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

“Groucho Marx wrote: A stock trader asked him, "Groucho, where do you put all your money?" Groucho was said to have replied, "In Treasury bonds", and the trader said, "You can't make much money on those." Groucho said, "You can if you have enough of them!" That's a great tag line. Groucho actually ...
