Re: Why are politicians so loathsome?

Not all politicians are loathsome. Just the ones we give our votes too. When someone like Harry Browne comes along, he doesn't get votes. And, if he somehow did get elected, he would be foiled by the loathsome machine that is Congress. Actually, I don't find Obama to be loathsome. Ok, let the tomato...

Re: What is a quantum computer?

I think you might have Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle mixed up with the Observer Effect, but I'm not sure. I definitely cannot answer the question "what is a quantum computer" even though I see headlines about them every week. Even this "simple English" page is not so simple. https://simple.wiki...

Re: Judge's comments to Zimmerman--any lawyers care to comment?

Seriously though, along the same lines as that article why did Obama choose this case to speak out? Has he ever spoken out on any of the black-on-black shootings in Chicago or a black-on-white crime? Tells you a lot about him. More than I really want to know actually. Yeah, I think MDMA is the same...

Re: Judge's comments to Zimmerman--any lawyers care to comment?

Insightful and levelheaded piece here. I'd paste the whole thing, but just go here if you're hooked by the excerpt: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/romany-malco/a-message-to-trayvon-mart_b_3612231.html To be brutally honest, the only reason people are even aware of Trayvon Martin is because it became ...

Re: That "other" investment forum is really retarded

I don't understand why some of you would spend time at a forum whose rules (or implementation of) you don't like. We spend time in a world  and a country and a state and a city we don't always like, but that doesn't mean we throw out the baby with the bathwater. I also don't understand why you'd bo...

Re: The GOLD scream room

Next week? Or perhaps after dropping to 750 for 13 years? That's what I want to know. I'm pretty sure you're just being facetious here, but I don't think we'll ever see $750 gold again.  However, anything close and I'll sell the farm and load up. There's a bit of facetiousness, but I'm making a ser...

Re: Has stock market gone parabolic / vertical ? or something similar?

As Spock would say, "Logically there are two possibility. Stocks are over valued, or they are not." That reminds me of an old Chris Rock routine about a salesman selling lottery tickets that he claimed had "a fifty percent chance of winning." When questioned how the odds could be that high, he said...

He generally knows about these things.

Re: Tax loss harvesting physical gold

A tax deferred is a tax not paid. I have heard this saying, but does it mesh with the world we're living in today? ... Certainly makes sense to me. It took me a while to get my head around locking in a loss with something I wanted to own in the future, but it works. Taxes are inevitable. You might ...

Re: Cash is king again

I keep trimming vp stocks as the market climbs and because I'm worried about the cost of an upcoming project, the cash is just sitting around like second-class gold. It's a weird feeling. Get us back to 5% interest at the bank, and this forum will be overrun with new adherents to the pp. But, the au...
