Re: Trump: I’m ‘not a fan’ of cryptocurrencies, and Facebook may need a banking charter for Libra

As much as I dislike Facebook (and yes I know the new consortium is not facebook), I hate the world's entrenched banking cartels even more. Trump doesn't know what he's talking about. You know what also facilitates unlawful behaviour? The U.S. Dollar -- more than any other currency in the world. Wi...

Re: The Peter Schiff portfolio: an evolutionary offshoot of the PP

So have I and am much better for it. For those who have "moved on", what have you moved on to? How have your views changed and where are they now? For me, I don't buy into Schiff's specific views of what Is going to happen to interest rates, gold or stocks in the next 3-6 month or even the next yea...

Re: The Peter Schiff portfolio: an evolutionary offshoot of the PP

Regardless, if you look at reviews you can see some really sad stories about how people have lost all of their savings thanks to his stock picks (many were gold miners) over the past 10 years. I remember reading recently about how one person couldn’t even afford to bury their child after Schiff’s b...

Re: Tech Help Needed

I always see big news like the French government is switching to Ubuntu, Vicenza is going to use Zorin, blah blah, and then they give up and quietly crawl back to Windows so they can use their printers again. Tiger head, snake tail, as the Chinese say. Printers were a big stumbling block a few year...

Re: Tech Help Needed

That made me laugh ... and fondly remember driving a 1958 MGA - when I was a young tinkerer, way before Linux. O0 I only play around with Linux on a 10 year old PC and always with the Linux OS on a USB stick. I left Windows at the XP version for the most part, I still have a windows machine for a f...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

What are the stats on resignations, I wonder. Cabinet level or in total? Cabinet Level confirmed and resigned = 12 I wonder when you talk talent, could the issue also be that Trump has not been in Politics all his life? The Political machine members that Trump has/had may not be use to his type of ...

Re: Tech Help Needed

Darn. The two posts above illustrate while I’ll never have a linux or bsd box as my primary computer. A tinkerer can. A mechanic can have a British car at home. I can do neither.

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I think a huge difference between Trump and all other Republican Presidents in my time is his inability to attract and retain good talent. To me that’s telling. Just 2 years and 158 days later. 135 No nominee 11 Awaiting nomination 115 Formally nominated 459 Confirmed https://www.washingtonpost.com...

Re: Chrome has become surveillance software. It’s time to switch browsers.

I have been using Opera for several years. Faster, lighter weight and based on Chromium so it feels similar to Chrome. You can even install Chrome extensions after installing an add-on. Also has a built-in, free VPN. I was using opera on my tablet until I had issues with Opera Loading. Then I found...
