    We don't have free market capitalism.
  2. Life insurance inside of a group plan is good, but there are likely other things to consider. Video.

    No, I wasn't confusing anything. I used 'investing' in the broad sense of the term. Trading can still be done over months, in which you may own a particular company for a long period of time.
  4. Is your child eligible for the BC Training and Education Savings Grant? Video
  5. There is lots of flexibility when it comes Group Health Benefit Plans. Not all plans are built the same. Video
  6. Remind me not to vote you in to the UN. Russia has lots of allies starting with China, Pakistan, India, Iran...

    Here is a couple of potential problems with this. Generally speaking, good traders come out ahead 60% of the time. Bankers come out ahead 100% of the time. For the rest of us it is more like 50% on the high side. We hear about the trades that turn out well, but what about the ones that don't? They bring the average down. For anybody that trades for more than fun/hobby I would ask, do you research the firms you are investing in?
  8. Is US media biased?
  9. The Everything Bitcoin Thread

    Uh, what does post count have to do with anything?
  10. The US is putting its nose where it doesn't need to be. Its track record of bringing 'democracy' to the region has shown that. The last extreme aggression and destruction happened in 2015. Since then the Syrian government has pushed back ISIS and the rebels to the point where the President of the United States made a statement about pulling troops out of Syria. Photos show, that the war has subsided as of late, enough for people to gather in the streets and celebrate Easter. Does that sound like a imminent and extreme aggression? Would you disagree?

    This is interesting, but not the thread for it. Maybe you missed the part where I said silver has an application as money. In which case a 'doubling' in dollar terms is just the beginning. In terms of investment, explain to me why it is better to own a mining company, with all the input costs and price volatility associated with it. Owing a liquid derivative like an ETF makes more sense from a risk and rate of return point of view doesn't it?
  12. Do you have a personal and/or business monthly income and expense budget? If not, what are you waiting for? Video

    Whatever path society takes? Are you sure? That's why I like silver. It's money and I don't need 1000 lbs of it like I would with copper. Although if we're talking strictly investment, a derivative would work too.

    You want growth? Silver is a better buy than gold. Silver douibling in price is $44 CAD. Gold doubling in price is a new all time high at $4000.
  15. Googled it. "War is a state of armed conflict between states or societies. It is generally characterized by extreme aggression, destruction, and mortality, using regular or irregular military forces." I recommend reading the article before posting. Earlier, hundreds of Syrians joined a Good Friday mass at the city’s Saint Francis Cathedral, which had been targeted in a missile strike in November 2015, when it was packed with 400 worshippers attending the Sunday mass. In what priests still label a “miracle,” no one was hurt then.
