Re: Bullion markup

ETF's were exactly what I was thinking. I've watched firearms go through this same cycle based on current events, and eventually things calm down and prices revert to norm. Is GLD still the ETF of choice? There's a firearm ETF? Wow, that sounds great! With the volatility in that market, it may be a...

Re: Autonomous Enclave in Georgia, USA

Slab City California Terlingua Texas Both are effectively free zones. I've been to Terlingua. I can't say that I noticed much government but then I wasn't thinking of moving there. Any semblance of government in Terlingua ended upon the death of Clay Henry, the Lone Star beer drinking goat that ser...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

Good one, i2start. It is so eerie how "1984" is coming to life all around us. I'd say that the guys pulling down statues are doing it for exactly the same reason that they looted stores and broke windows: it felt good at the time and they're lashing out because they're frustrated and angry at the w...

Bullion markup

I've noticed popular dealers marking up one ounce gold coins from $100 to $150 over spot. Many bullion coins are out of stock indicating a strong demand because of world events. If I'm not mistaken most markups in the past were around $50 per coin. Will we see these markups again in the future, or i...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

You know what Doodle, you may be right. Maybe it is just in bad taste for people who don't like these symbols/statues etc to have to see them on public property. Maybe I've been reluctant to give an inch because a mile will be taken. (As if my opinion matters, which it doesn't, but arguing about th...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

I think at the root of all of this is that many people don't want to live in a truly 'diverse' society.. I understand that. I know that a great deal of cultural diversity can create tension. But let's be scientific about this and discuss our honest beliefs about the functionality of the American me...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

So, am I to understand that as soon as we burn all existing Confederate flags, tear down all civil war statues, rename all schools relating to civil war heroes, things will be instantly better? Apparently, we will feel better about ourselves for trying to cover up things of the past that should have...

Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

Am I the only one here that thinks part of the reason the rioting has gotten so out of hand is bc of the Covid lockdown? I agree with Scott Adams that this has set the progress of Black back 10 years. But doesn't take much to make people snap under the conditions we've been under. I’m with you Pug....

Re: Another angle on the recent events in America and the world

Whether you are pro-firearms or anti-firearms, I just can't imagine any means by which the U.S. population would be disarmed. It's not going to happen. Maybe at some point, after we're all long gone, they will prohibit the sale of bullets, and they'll have to be bought on the black market. You may ...

Re: Let the investigations begin

I don't feel we have heard the last of Hunter Biden and Tara Reade just yet. Seems it would be to the RNC's benefit to have these issues reemerge again in say........October maybe.
