Re: Would you wear a mask?

Face masks are a 'ticking plastic bomb': Three MILLION coverings are thrown out every minute and serve as carriers for other toxicants in the environment, experts warn link Who could have predicted this? ::) As if we needed another reason to abandon masks at this point. Awful. I wear cotton and was...

Re: Let's debate the Permanent Portfolio

But why do you feel the need to say that though. I'm sure I'm not the only one with an interest in further discussion. I just don't understand why others have to come in and essentially share that they're not interested. I can't speak for everyone else, but I've been here for a while and can offer ...

Is there anybody here who either voted for Biden or leans that way politically who can explain what exactly is the Democrat policy in regards to border enforcement? Mine is pretty simple. I believe the laws passed by congressional representatives should be followed and enforced and if they need to b...

Re: LTT and SP500 funds at Fidelity?

1) Is there better alternative to TLT? Another ETF or an index fund? I just remember people here were not very happy with TLTs for some reason. You can buy your own LT bonds on Fidelity and it is very easy. I think there is even a tutorial about how to do it on this website because I used it when I...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

Got the first pfizer at a mass vaccination site yesterday. Fairly painless as far as shots go but I'm having a mild reaction 24 hours later. Just feeling fatigued and my head feels stuffy like I'm on some kind of strong antihistamine. Hopefully that means my body is hard at work creating antibodies...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I'm not much for global conspiracies but I think there are a lot of people in power with a globalist/left wing mindset baked into their DNA and when a crisis like COVID comes along they are ready and eager to do what comes naturally to them. You see the same thing with climate change/global warming....

Re: What return do you expect for the PP going forward?

This wasn't a hypothetical question for my parents. Bank CD's were paying 18% when they retired and they invested their whole nest egg in them. They continued rolling them over as their only investment vehicle until they died - almost penniless BTW due to the declining rates hitting near zero at the...

Re: Golden butterfly fifth asset

Can a fifth asset be variable? Or does that just make it a PP with a VP. Some of you do view the standard fifth asset as a PP with a SCV VP though right? Yes, that's the way I view it as presented by Tyler. Maybe other proposed variants could use the term PP+, or even PP++ if you want to go six ass...

Re: Reasons why I will not be getting injected for the Wuhan

I got a second and final opinion from the Science Based Medicine website before making my decision to get the vaccine. They didn't convince me it was completely safe and devoid of any long term consequences but they did rebut some of the things I've been hearing.
