Re: Gold vs bitcoin...or both

Recent stock-to-flow modeling results on BTC, gold, silver. Fits the precious metals well, and predicts big gains for BTC. I'm willing to risk a little bit for a 100-bagger. https://medium.com/@100trillionUSD/bitcoin-stock-to-flow-cross-asset-model-50d260feed12 I like it! From what I read, Bitcoin ...

Re: Question on the media

I was alive in 1968 but just barely. I wasn't talking about deciding on re-election but rather about impeachable offenses. Yes, you're right about the media giving Frisky Bill 100% attention. They always like a salacious story because it gets lots of eyeballs. I don't think it influenced who they re...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

Hot and muggy here in NYC today. I went outside for a walk early this morning, before it got too hot. Heading out of town for a day trip tomorrow. I was checking out cars on the walk too, as I'm considering buying one. Between the endless lockdowns/remote work and the breakdown of public transporta...

Re: Question on the media

My point is that if the media wanted to they probably could have found stuff done by say Johnson that was just as bad or worse as what Nixon did, such as using the FBI to spy on political opponents, etc. The media didn't want to do that, because Johnson was much more to their taste than Nixon. I'm s...

Re: Question on the media

Right, but did the Republicans turn on him because they knew the liberal media had it in for him and wouldn't let Watergate go. Whereas, the media gave a pass to previous presidents that did things just as bad but weren't so conservative?

Re: Question on the media

I was very young when Nixon was impeached, but now I wonder how much of his impeachment was due to him doing something that much worse than other presidents have done, and how much was the liberal media deciding to bring him down? I haven't read much about Watergate frankly, but what little I have r...

Re: What "Black Lives Matter" really has in mind for America

The difference now from the 1860s is that we no longer have systemic racism. The whole BLM thing is built on lies. The cops kill more unarmed white people than black people, although you wouldn't know it from the media coverage. We still have racial problems and some remaining bigots, although if bl...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

The Kung Flu brouhaha is just another example of leftists being so uptight that they can't even laugh at a simple joke. It's just a funny pun. No harm, no foul. But today everything has to be weaponized to score points. Oh well, if leftists can't laugh at anything, they are the ones missing out. The...

Re: Nascar Noose

Guys, stuper1 is just taking the piss. I bet it was the word "thoughtful" that gave my true feelings away? Was that it? Too over the top? Mark is right of course. When I saw this noose story yesterday or whenever, I was 99% sure that it would be shown as a hoax, and sure enough it was revealed toda...

Nascar Noose

I feel like I need to make a public apology to everyone on this forum. A few weeks ago I posted something saying that racism is actually not a major issue in this country and that the media is just using it as a wedge to divide America further. However, after reading several of the thoughtful media ...

Re: Daily "Check In" Thread For Us

The best way to learn golf is to probably start with your pitching wedge and get good with that first. Then move to 9 iron, 8 iron, up to say 5 iron or 4 iron, then fairway woods and finally driver. Starting with the driver is sort of like learning to sail by trying to cross the Pacific on your firs...

Re: GOP defending Confederate legacy?

In my rounds about town, I've noticed a lot of BLM signs in business windows. It got me wondering how many of them are sincere and how many are put there just in hopes that the sign will be a magical spell to ward off window-shattering violence? I read a related comment on another forum where the p...
