    OW

    Sorry, I am not buying that one. The US didn't even send what they promised for the first year..

    The gold just isn't there ! Otherwise we would of heard of this reason a long time ago. I just think it's just another spin !!

  • 8 Reasons Why A New Global Financial Crisis Could Be On The Way [View article]
    FRIPP

    Bingo.... Some of us are approaching 60 now and I am not sure if I could stomach another episode of the sickening feeling I had through those years.

    What if the next time it took 10 years to recover again? I see that some posters are saying they had to run their business. What about those of us who didn't have a business ?

    Sorry, I got off this bus a year ago. If I want to gamble I will head to the casino. Not with my retirement money and a FED that has no idea how to unwind their massive balance sheet. I have a problem investing in the unknown..

    I am simply amazed reading all these responses. 1) people should always hedge against a market correction/crash. They do happen. 2) Gold, one poster said it will do you no good. Wait until or fiat money is on life support. Then tell me that you are glad you own no metals. 3) most here seem to have forgotten about 2008. Big mistake !!

    I bet most who were in the market then wished they weren't. Probably didn't even open up your brokerage statements. Now all of a sudden were no longer vulnerable ? I do feel sorry for those who go to bed thinking this !!

    This just proved to me to be on the other side of this bet...

    Can you explain this ...Germany asked the USA to return their own gold that was supposedly held in vaults during WW11... The answer was it will take 7 years !! Not 7 months, 7 years >>

    You don't see any troubling signs with that ???

    Here's my take. This POTUS is going to stretch this little "war game" of his out a few years , sit back, do a little bombing here and there. Then hand this mess over to either Hillary, who he loves or the Republicans.

    He is personally in a no lose situation for himself. Can't get re elected !!

    I read an article years ago where these militants said "We might not be able to beat the USA militarily, but we can defeat them FINANCIALLY !!"

    Read that after 9/11 and like I have said a decade is just a speck of time in History. They have patience, more then we do. They , I am sure, have been planning something for a long time now.

    Just look at the great job we did in Iraq !! Kids died for no reason. Just like Viet Nam... History repeats over and over..

  • 9 Dividend Aristocrats Reward Investors [View article]
    This list is great for those who can invest 1 million and sit back. What about those middle class people living paycheck to paycheck?

    Where are the value stocks? From what I see many of these names are overvalued and I don't see the need to rush in and buy them unless I am a 1%and really don't care about the price of the stock. All I would care about is the dividend stream.

    I think the article and premise is fine. I just think way too many people just can't sit back and wait for it to compound. I am trying a faster approach using BDC'S and taking advantage of the FED'S lower interest rate policy right now.

    I believe you were a teacher once. I pull this seminar out once in a while. I fully understand that the author sells metals. However I would appreciate you finding 90 minutes to watch it and appreciate opinions from anyone..

    It is not a teaser or an informercial. I still believe it is full of information. I also understand that 10 years is a spec of time. So what he talks about might not even happen in my lifetime. But can it happen ??

    Actually I disagree with the results of deflation. It is the worst nightmare for the FED. If we have deflation people aren't spending, companies then start laying people off, the stock market starts to decline...

    Actually I just read your link and that Author seems to agree with me. Let me add if our economy really gets that bad don't underestimate Russia or China to try and make it more difficult for us to remain the World's Currency.

    We are already looking weak with this POTUS playing golf while the Generals are planning on bombing Syria. Who is really running this Country ?

    I still maintain we are a house of cards, and one day, I have no idea when, we might see that "special card" pulled out !

    You think gold will go down in price? If were brought to our knees just the opposite will happen. I still think were the strongest country in the world but were headed in the wrong direction.

    Things are looking brighter will all these positive reports but one must remember what they are being compared to. Why was the West (China, Russia ) buying all the physical they could for the last 3 years ? They have a plan that were not being told about !!

    REMEMBER WHEN I POSTED THAT ONCE WE SENT "ADVISORS" OVER TO THE MIDDLE EAST IT WOULD ONLY ESCALATE FROM THERE?

    Well he we go !!

    U.S. Considering Taking Fight Against Islamic State Into Syria!!!!

    http://huff.to/1pqoS1H

    Why can't we just keep our noses out of this. Plus did anyone even know of those detained journalist? One who was beheaded ? This seems like it just went around in a circle and is starting all over again.

    Next.. Do we now more send advisors (special ops ) or will it be aircraft carriers and boots on the ground disguised as something else ?

    BTW... Can CNN already stop the massive coverage of Ferguson already ? I think we have more important issues to learn about . Or were they told to stay away from those topics ?

  • What If The Fed Has Created A Bubble? [View article]
    Nice article. People have no idea how fast Putin can destroy our economy with just a few decisions. They are already avoiding the PETRODOLLAR..

    Check out my daily blog as we discuss this and also run a mock portfolio challenge. I would be honored for the Author to stop in for a few comments. I have plenty of non believers who think were untouchable.

    We aren't !!

    Hope to see a few new faces. We are different, and I don't get paid as I do not write articles. I let my posters decide what we want to discuss. Please read the blogs description. Were different !
