    Ha!

    The ULTIMATE nonproducer, a stock speculator!

    hahaha.

    China.

    Oh good times Grok, good times. You've finally said something that's made me laugh!

    You ramble on here about "liberty" and "freedom" yet invest in a straight up slave/serf economy in a repressive tyrannical cannibalistic country.

    Bravo Grok! Bravo!

    You send capital abroad instead of investing it here. You rant about Ron Paul and the fed....hahaha.

    Truly, this is a delicious moment. I am savoring it.

    I am glad that you're going to get robbed by people even less scrupulous than yourself.

    Yeah. I'm free of moral obligations just trying to figure out how to make a buck.

    China would not be so much of a slave/serf economy if their government would stop spending all their hard-earned money buying US government bonds.

    Umm, no thanks. Buying American companies is a sure fire way to lose all your money. You want to get all your investments as far away from the US dollar as possible because once the Chinese stop buying our bonds, the US currency is going to collapse.

    One day, in the not too distant future, those who have a lot of savings in US dollars are going to go to bed rich, and wake up the next day poor.

    Uh-huh.

    Whatever it takes to get you erect.

    Ron Paul wouldn't even give you a reach around with that attitude.

    I think Ron Paul understands that the US dollar is toast, that is why all of his investments are in gold and silver mining companies.

    You have no idea how deep the cartel runs. Medical technology is constrained by what's "billaable" which is dictated by govt policies.

    I always thought that fat bad really bad for you but as you read more into it and actually find out for yourself, sugar is the demon.

    Straw man... If one understands the storage value of money, fiat currency is inherently unethical.
    The Federal Reserve and the Wars on Cholesterol and Health Freedom
    Money is quite the same. Food is quite the same. Health is quite the same.

    All three of these areas would look very different if they were not dominated by cartels that hijack government to use it against the public for their own profit.


    The actions of the Danish govt is simply following the American lead. They're taxing fat, we're subsidizing wheat. Effects are the same. The causes are the same; govt doing what it does best: protecting well connected industries.
