Re: The GOLD scream room

Just waiting for you to give me the buy signal, Tech. Yes, I think "opportunistic rebalancing" is the term I was looking for. Either that or "buying lowish." If you look at a 1.5 year chart you've got a clear double bottom at $1,180. That should provide support. It looks like a strong level so you'...

Re: Do Animals Have Rights

I don't see how you (Kshartle) would approach this from any different position than going through the same stuff we've been going through in the morality thread. Not that I didn't want you to participate, but I figured any deductive discussion with you on rights was going to get us right back into ...

Re: Do Animals Have Rights

Sorry. I know I've hijacked my fair share of threads.  So have I. I'm not trying to do that here. There are a couple ways this thread can go, the most likely one is everyone giving their opinion based on what their teachers told them, their parents told them, their priest told them, the president t...

Re: Self-Driving Cars

Also think of all the valuable time saved by people who basically now will have their own personal driver. Middle-class people will now enjoy what used to be the privilage of the wealthy. This will add years to people's lives that othwise would have spent that time driving, now they can do other th...

Re: Self-Driving Cars

Am I the only one concerned about computer problems i.e. crashes?  OTOH brings a whole new meaning to blue screen of death. That comes up a lot, but I think it should be more along the lines of mission critical, NASA-type programming than Windows 2000. In test after test, computer-driven cars are s...

Re: The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats

If nobody in a certain country happens to want nuclear weapons, for example, then nobody will make them for those people's consumption. If nobody happens to want lectures in LGBTQQ studies, then none will be produced. If neither moda nor Kshartle or I, marooned on our desert island, happen to want ...

Re: The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats

That's two!  I'm sensing you may have some repression issues today?  Is it brown or white eyes?  :o ... Mountaineer I am feeling a bit financially repressed. I just got my paycheck and it included 13 hours of OT at time and a half. I was absolutely beasted by taxes. I am singlehandedly supporting a...

Re: The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats

Not trying to being a dick here, but just to play devil's advocate: If you spent less time posting here while on the clock, would that 13 hours of OT even have been necessary? And how is *that* theft different than the type you are always referring to?  ;D ah-ha-ha, loaded question on #2. I only ch...

Re: The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats

I think that unless you have potential to have enough units sold, innovative products such as medicines that cost billions to develop simply won't get invented. So in a world where everyone is rich, the very rich (along with everyone else) will be able to get that innovative medicine for say £100, ...

Re: The Pitchforks Are Coming For Us Plutocrats

When you say "more goods + same production = lower general price level" are you referring to to Joe or the entire economy? Whooops I meant: more goods + same money supply = lower general price level Regardless. You didn't respond to the rest of the post... let me finish first......(she said)
