Everybody's a conspiracy theorist. If anything, he damaged Hilary's total.
I like the nickname, though.

Regardless, he ended up a non factor, because let’s face it, he is a clown.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Neo-con? Me? Omg no. Much more of a Ron Paul guy. If it was Ron Paul vs Hillary (or fill in the blank Democratic Socialist), I would vote for him in a second. At the moment, the Libertarian movement is on life support and not politically viable. I'm about 90% convinced that in the last election, Ga...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Hopefully better spelling. Is this what the anti-Trump argument has come to? In a way, this is what the anti-Trump argument has been about all along. As you know, the election represented a clash between, on the one hand, those Whites and Asians who have tended to go to college (allied with Blacks,...

Re: PP Inspired Leveraged Portfolios

So with the blow up I’m retooling what I was going to track/post on here. I’m thinking 20% st vol was a bit much. :-) I’m looking at something Golden Butterflyish. Selling vol will still be a part of it but looking at different forms. Could be just a switch to SVXY. Kbg, you probably covered this i...

Re: Is the PP going to hold up?

My personal opinion is that gold is going to explode up soon. Of course timing is never easy and I'm talking over the next 5-7 years, I see gold out-performing stocks significantly. In my business, I see costs skyrocketing. -Construction costs on commercial projects are 20-25% higher than they were ...

Re: PP Inspired Leveraged Portfolios

Looks like XIV is trading again. It could be a good time to buy some additional shares at a 90% discount??

Re: Wow, Just Like Old Times! (VIX +72%)

Did XIV liquidate?

I pulled up their data to see what kind of carnage ensued recently and it looks like it may have stopped trading!

Citizens dividends may actually work some day if the AI/robotic revolution fully takes form.

Re: Attention early retirees in Kentucky

Early retirees who use welfare to fund their early retirement during prime working years, are just that..... welfare recipients. You have to have a pretty low amount of pride to do that IMHO.

Re: 20 Years Old Hits the Mega Millions

For practicality's sake, I would probably have no more than $1m in physical gold and use ETF's for the rest. I would also have no problem replacing half of the "gold portion" with REIT's and/or NNN properties.
