Re: Poll: What percentage of your gold is held in physical form?

Most of my gold is in IAU. I do have a small percentage that's physical along with modest pile of silver that I bought speculatively a couple of years ago. Good stuff. I do think that silver is more "useful" in physical form than digital form. Since silver is less valuable it would theoretically be...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Bitcoin in the PP? I'm going to need a more established track record showing it's long term performance as an accepted store of value. Get back to me in 6000 years or so and we can talk about it.

Re: The GOLD scream room

i would like to know gold has a chance to cross 1900 this year or not ? The future is unpredictable. That said a lot of the expensive suits on Wall Street remain bullish on gold. And FTR I tend to agree. I certainly like gold more than bonds. Citigroup recently predicted $2500/oz for 2021. I'm not ...

Re: Whoa: Nearly a Third of Democrats Believe the Election Was Stolen From Trump

The problem is that even though many Democrats know that the election was stolen away from Trump in the middle of the night they just don't care. Lack of a moral compass, perhaps? ...The evidence of coordinated fraud is so obvious the only way to claim it doesn't exist is to be ignorant of any fact...

Re: Will you get vaccinated for COVID?

To the OP's original post... Yes. Don't you think you already had it, Ad? I do. But I was not tested as tests at the time were only available to those who were seriously ill. So I don't know for certain. Also I don't know the duration of any immunity assuming I did have it. Is there a mechanism whe...

Re: Whoa: Nearly a Third of Democrats Believe the Election Was Stolen From Trump

By the way I should also mention I think Biden has taken this whole thing very well considering. He has said he wishes he could begin his transition officially, but that he is willing to be patient and that he is not going to try to fight for it in the courts. He is not trying to fight Trump in a s...

Re: Whoa: Nearly a Third of Democrats Believe the Election Was Stolen From Trump

"But, Joe Biden’s problems are not simply because many Republicans believe the election was stolen. It’s true that the poll showed a significant partisan divide on this issue: 75 percent of Republicans believe it is very likely (61 percent) or somewhat likely (14 percent) that the election was stol...
