Re: Who Killed Kennedy?

Why wasn't he killed immediately after he killed Kennedy? You'll have to ask the puppetmasters about that. Why was Oswald allowed to be such an amazingly easy target? Because the Dallas PD was stunningly incompetent, a fact generally recognized even by conspiracy theorists. Then it's a good thing t...

Re: Gold and real interest rates

That is, in the current environment, one would expect gold prices to be rising, and yet they aren't.  Why not? Negative real interest rates have historically been present when the central banks are trying to use monetary policy to offset an economic dislocation (recession).  Investor psychology at ...

Re: Who Killed Kennedy?

I'm sure there is a perfectly innocent reason why a lot of the files are still sealed: http://www.ibtimes.com/jfk-assassination-files-cia-lee-harvey-oswald-still-classified-after-50-years-1389437 Right? The CIA lies about having an Oswald file when in fact they did. They lie about knowing of his tr...

Re: Is PHYS a good idea?

Have you read the GLD prospectus? I have read a bunch of it and it scares the daylights out of me. Assuming that they follow its terms to the letter, they could have a vault filled with marshmallows instead of gold and they would not be liable. Compare the GLD and PHYS (or SLV and PSLV) prospectus....

How about 70% gold, 30% Swiss francs?

Re: The Decline of Violence

Imagine Kshartle was the landed farmer and I am a rancher. Kshartle comes in and starts staking claim to my prime grazing land claiming that it wasnt being used or whatever and it is now his. Based on the way this argument is going does anyone doubt that we wouldn't need a government to get involve...

Re: PP=RBD

Can I sue Harry Browne to make up the difference if it fails to meet that 10% guarantee? Seriously, I looked up yesterday's chart since it was easy thanks to Adam, Prince of Eternia, whoops, I mean Pointedstick, and it looks like stocks went down less than gold and bonds, and so I would have been b...

Re: Is PHYS a good idea?

I would take that article with a grain of salt.  The author of the article is under the assumption that the ETFs operate exactly as they are supposed to. The exact same skepticism should be applied to Sprott's funds.  Either you assume that all trusts and ETFs follow the law & their trust documents...

Re: PP=RBD

So again, anyone know what asset(s) actually went down yesterday?  I don't want to have to look up charts.  Though, if anyone has a convenient link to a live chart that shows all four components and the aggregate, I would happily save such a thing. All of them went down. No portfolio won yesterday....
