Re: "What is your age" poll

Curiously even distribution. We seem to have people of all ages here.

Re: AOC's Speech is Ridiculous

It's just an insult. You know what you do? You dig your heels in and fire off a clever comeback. You don't cry to the world just because you failed to think of one. That's just your opinion. I've been at the receiving end of an endless stream of cleverly "funny" disguised verbal abuse from a cowork...

Re: A Boat I (Gladly) Missed

Of all the cryptos, only Bitcoin really has my trust, and only for a single-digit percentage of my variable portfolio. There are interesting coins out there, like Monero, which is 100% focused on privacy. But that's really it (for me, at least). You were wise to decline the offers of this guy.

Re: $20 gold Liberty coin Heads Up!

It would be interesting to know how they test these coins for purity. I believe there are several methods and they're not accurate all the time.

Re: Illinois Will Be The Poster Case For State Bankruptcy

Re: The Dawning of a Golden Decade

Memorable quote on page 7: Truth hurts. Maybe not as much as jumping on a bicycle with the seat missing, but it hurts. Inspector Frank Drebin It's not a bone-dry paper, they did their best to keep it readable with a joke in the sideline here and there. This is my first crisis with a lot (for me) of ...

Re: Warren Buffet goes nuts and exposes the fraud that is the USA

This is no secret and everybody who buys these treasuries knows this. The US isn't unique in this regard. There are multiple countries for whom the debt-to-GDP ratio is overboard. Here in Europe we have France and Italy. Japan also has gone nuts. It's the reason, as I understand it, why they all lov...
