Re: APMEX, Wire Transfer from Ally and Pitfalls to Avoid

Just curious. What would you consider common sense precautions to avoid getting robbed while making a large gold purchase?

IDK where you live, but in the Chicago suburbs a 6 week wait to see a dermatologist or ophthalmologist is not uncommon, even if you have a problem needing immediate attention.  >:(

Re: For the financially independent among us

I had serious feelings of unfairness, however, when acquaintances would tell me that they had part of their mortgage forgiven... Do you think your acquaintances set out to benefit at your expense when they were shopping for a house and a mortgage? The bank bailouts were "at your expense" too, and p...

Re: Why do conservatives hate Obama so?

Since everyone is so concerned about methane gas, is anyone willing to give up, or at least cut back on beef consumption? The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that cattle belching and manure management contribute about 28 percent of all anthropogenic methane emissions in the United States. ...

Re: Anarchist/Statist Union: realistic, libertarian solutions to the USA's problems

I don't understand why you think student debt should be dischargeable.  Or any debt for that matter. It is a responsibility you choose to take on, not one that is forced on you at gunpoint. Debt that is discharged is paid for by everyone else through higher costs and fees. Completely disagree here....

No. But neither did Bush.
Call me crazy, but the last time I had any lasting pride in America was when Bill Clinton was president.

Agree strongly on the Environment and Immigration ideas. I don't understand why you think student debt should be dischargeable.  Or any debt for that matter.

Re: GDX AND GDXJ

Still extremely undervalued by most measures. If you thought it was a good buy 6 months ago, it still should be, in theory. That said, I am finally profitable on GDX and up 17% on a smaller position in GDXJ and have been forcing myself not to act too quickly to sell.

Re: Anarchist/Statist Union: realistic, libertarian solutions to the USA's problems

Just for kicks and giggles, let's brainstorm some pro-freedom, realistic policy prescriptions for the "anarchist/statist union" party. In order to be considered, the proposals must increase freedom and opportunity for American citizens, must be effective at accomplishing their aims, must be popular...

Re: For the financially independent among us

What I witnessed during the housing bust was a bunch of irresponsible people who did stupid things and were bailed out by the responsible people who did the smart thing. With "irresponsible people who did stupid things" you mean mostly the banks I suppose? That's where most of the bailout money wen...

Re: Futures DAYTRADING

Ha. Just wait until your boys get into high school. I used to do the family grocery shopping. I remember spending upwards of $200 per trip [once a week] and I am a very savvy shopper what with coupons and sales and knowing what to buy in bulk. I used to go on Wednesday while the 2 kids were at schoo...
