Re: Heavan

There is an old fisherman's story about a fly fisherman who dies and goes to his reward. He finds himself standing beside a stream the rival of the finest English chalk streams in Hampshire. By the stream is a ghillie offering him the most [more]

Re: Peter Schiff: Dollar to crash, buy gold

Schiff is right. There is a 100% chance the dollar will go to zero at some point in the future. If nothing else, the sun will go supernova in a few million years. Nobody will be buying dollars then.

It's completely useless information, but [more]

Re: Bond market ailing

Interesting screen. FWIW, I owned two (INTC, T) of the eight stocks that have a "1" for Safety and "A++" for
Financial Strength. I exited both in the last two weeks.


Why sell INTC, if you don't mind my asking?

Re: Tickets, ugh

Their best live shows were from '69 to '72, and so How The West Was Won pretty much captures them at their peak.

Agreed, and that's also why I like II so much. Is has that raw feeling of a live album. I also really love the tracks on [more]

Re: Water: at happens if?....

I read this. California is too valuable to abandon, for so many reasons. Water will be diverted, desalinized, etc etc to see that it remains viable.

Re: Comcast may have no choice

We cut the cord years ago and never looked back. I don't think I've paid for cable in 15 years. Someone has pointed out that if you like to watch sports, you're kind of stuck, so I guess I lucked out on that.

Cut the cord. AppleTV or no, You [more]

Re: Tickets, ugh

I do believe it's time for a systematic listening of their studio work. What's your favorite album? I think mine has got to be II. Or maybe Houses of the Holy. It's really hard to pick one.

Re: Good & Bad writing in games - violence

I just finished GTA 5, the whole point of which (or a major factor) is gratuitous violence against innocent people, jacking cars, going on psychotic rampages with the crazy character, etc. I thought all of it was a lot of fun and very well done. But [more]

Re: OT: FreethinkerKW

Thanks for the invite! Seems like a strange and magical place. I'm playing it a little by ear because I have to coordinate with family stuff, but if I make my way down there I'll definitely be in touch.

Re: Tickets, ugh

Led Zeppelin was my favorite band for years (still is, I guess, but do adults have favorite bands?), but isn't Plant an old rocker now? I've never seen him live, but I can't imagine he can duel Page at the end of You Shook Me like he used to.

Re: Impending Doom

Schiff, while being consistently wrong on that score, is one of the many sources who help me keep an eye on all that other stuff that used to matter before the monetarists took over, and may matter again some day.

I still read Hussman [more]

Re: Janet speaks...

I've long suspected the markets would react positively to interest rate increases. Uncertainty is the biggest market bummer.

What I don't understand is the dollar reacting downwards. That doesn't make any sense to me.

Re: An Open Letter

Most of the cats that you meet on the street speak of true love;
Most of the time they're sitting and crying at home.
One of these days, they know they better get going,
out of the door and down on the streets all alone.

OT: FreethinkerKW

I'm heading down to Florida for a few days and thinking about driving out to the Keys. Is it a hard drive? Too long for a day trip from Fort Lauderdale? Google has it at 4.5 hours, but a 4.5 hour breezy drive is different from a 4.5 hour traffic jam [more]
