In seminars (pre PP days), HB used to advocate betting against the government.
Any material you can link detailing his rationale?
My dad told me that.

Re: Looking for recommendations for investing in paper gold (401k and Roth IRA)

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Many (most?) type 2 diabetics are on Lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor. There is somewhat strong evidence that those drugs greatly open the door to CV. Maybe that is the reason that diabetics are being hit so hard.

Re: Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

There must be thousands of researchers examining this virus. Could some of them tell if it was engineered?
