Re: Second passport?

I mean, look at Sicilians. They have a very rich and diverse history and ancestry.
Yeah, technically Italy was unified late after the period of city-states, but there’s this thing called the Roman Empire.

Re: Second passport?

You offering dualstow? ;D Vinny - I'm as American as it gets i.e. a mongrel. 1/2 Palestinian, 1/4 Polish, 1/4 Italian. The 1/4 Italian just happens to be precisely what is required for the Italian passport (patriarchal descent). Feels a little like cheating but hey, I didn't make the rules. Well, m...

It's a bit like the Israeli "right of return" - for which I decidedly do not qualify.

Re: Stock scream room

Ocho started posting less frequently even before coronavirus hit. I hope it’s not my fault. I know he wasn’t happy with some of my posts about immigration and ICE happenings.

Re: Stock scream room

There was basically no point to getting out of the market before the crash. (I didn’t). Amazing recovery. I’ve been trimming my vp, though. Seems logical to trim some gains on shares purchased during the decline (no tax implications). I convinced myself to at least rebalance to the more aggressive ...

Porter Stansberry Under the Microscope

Porter Stansberry of Stansberry Research. I haven’t read too many good things about this man/firm that don’t come from their own ads, and they are everywhere. “Man who predicted DOW 20,000 has new call” was referenced by Sophie. I have written about his paper mail touting natural gas just before pri...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Seen on the Bogleheads forum. Too good not to share. ;D "Are bonds worth it?" "yes of course you have to be diversified!" "Are negative yielding bonds worth it?" "yes, for the diversification value. Yield is not so important." "Is gold worth it?" "no, gold has no yield" :o Knuckleheads cognitive di...

I wonder if the price scales with length. Or maybe it’s circumference.
I guess you'll have to use a traditional balance to test for phonies. No ring test for that, i.e. no ding from a dong.
