  1. I'm happy with the balance I've struck. There were probably more conversations that you didn't even get to see.
  2. I hope all of you keep this in mind when there is a mass shooting. Saving a few lives at the cost of gun sales, hunting licenses, and other economic factors is not worth it. A life is a life. BTW. Still sitting at 85% cash/bonds. My gut says we find a new bottom in the next year. Without a vaccine, we will just see number fluctuate. China is starting to see a pockets of outbreaks. Seeing that one region of 600k was put under lock down today. How anyone expects a place like NY to keep this under control without a vaccine is delusional. There is no alternative to subways and the vertical lifestyle there. And they are just 1 example.
  3. You posted this in the PSF and the FFA, why not the Shark Pool? FYI, title of the Bears thread today - ***Chicago Bears Thread*** GM is an idiot. Stupid is as stupid does If someone created a thread in the PSF - ***Current Administration Thread***. Trump is an idiot. Stupid is as stupid does. The thread would be altered, locked or removed. And the poster possibly banned. Have a Good Friday.
  4. I am chilled out. Not angry at all. You have an issue with what I'm posting. Not the other way around. This actually made me chuckle. Have things really changed here with all that is going on in the world? The PSF is still the same. As to trashing mods? I'm just pointing out things that I saw coming years ago. It's all truths. Sometimes that hurts. As to the rest. People shouldn't ask questions they don't want answers to. I haven't posted much in the last few months. As soon as I do, people immediately post "I thought you left, why are you posting?" What are their priorities? Maybe they are looking for a fight. This is another one of those hypocritical things I like to point out. Best of luck to you too.
  5. 1 - Does everyone that posts here feel welcome? Do posters and moderators make everyone feel welcome? 2 - It's not my job to help you understand. 3 - If you have an issue, perhaps you should find another board. As I mentioned, I'm here to follow up on previous conversations. Think of it as saying "I told you so". It has nothing to do with feeling welcome. Again, 17k posts in 10 years. If people can take jabs at me in my absence, then I can stop in once in a while to point out inaccuracies.
  6. Three months ago, I would have said that 300 rounds per gun was an acceptable amount. Today, I think that number is much, much higher. perhaps 1000 rounds per gun. That also would depend on the gun. A single shot or revolver would go through less rounds. Where a semi automatic would go through more. The same way Vietnam soldiers fired more rounds than WWI soldiers. We don't know what the next 6 months hold. Remember the conversations a few years ago about the impossible task of standing up against our mighty military? That same military could get decimated by an invisible virus. Could that weakness leave us susceptible to attacks from other countries? Maybe. If that happened, how much ammo would you want? The other scenario is the deterioration of police forces across the country. We are starting to see it in NY. We could see pockets of civil unrest as things progressively get worse. If there is no police to protect you, and a percent of the population is without basic necessities because their $1200 stimulus check didn't go far enough, how much ammo would you want?
  7. Not at all. I've just adjusted my posting style as asked. Does everyone who posts on FBG's do so in a helpful manner? I doubt it. I'll leave you with another of my wonderful analogies. FBG's and I have had a divorce. Previously we lived in the same house. I now live in a different house, so I no longer do maintenance on the house that FBG's lives in. That was a result of the divorce. Some of you and other posters are shared friends. We still see each other on occasion, but some of you have chosen to take FBG's side. So, why would I help you with your home projects? You can't have it both ways.
  8. I guess we are seeing why some people stockpile ammo. With some stores being deemed non essential, gun owners are finding it difficult to buy any ammo. Much less stockpile it. The 2nd Amendment is going to get a boost once we get past this pandemic.
  9. I posted lot's of helpful things on this "fine" message board over the last 10 years. In return, I was told "I should find another board to post on". Were you disheartened by that comment? I guess not. So, I've taken that advice and now post helpful things on other fine message boards. You can't have it both ways. Sorry that's hard for you to understand.
  10. Link? I said I found a new board to post. I have 17k posts here in 10 years. I've had less than 10 in the last few months. In case you don't understand the math, that means I'm not posting here as much as I have in the past. Is the board better for it? Maybe. I'm not here to share things to help others. An example would be my thoughts on the coronavirus in mid January. If I was contributing to the board, I would have posted that I moved my money out of the market months ago. I drop in from time to time to point out the hypocrisy of the moderation and the idiocies of opinions on things like gun ownership and hoarding ammo. We are living the reasons why we are the country that we are. Sorry to disappoint you. I'm still alive and kicking.
  11. Sorry you see it this way. I believe you are wrong. You don't have to be psychic to figure it out. You have this weird expectation of people here. It's either too much or too little. The impossible Goldilocks where nothing is "just right".
  12. The problem with the bolded is that Joe wants people to help moderate. Except when they moderate too much. Then he wants them to shut up. He wants an impossible balance and takes it out on posters when it doesn't work. You're not paying attention. My post wasn't about aliases. It as about poor moderation and expectations by Joe.
  13. Isn't ignoring known aliases being coy? Your moderators know who the aliases are. It's not an difficult to see someone show up with a 1 or 2 post count and immediately reference a long standing personal joke.
  14. I moved 25% of the wife's TSP back into C fund. I didn't want to move it this soon, but seeing the market move this week, I felt like I shouldn't wait. My personal opinion is that we haven't/didn't hit bottom. But, the market was showing something different. This is money that can't be touched for another 5 years. Anything with a shorter outlook is still sitting in cash or gold funds. I'm sure some are thinking I should have left the money in, or that I should have pushed it all in a week or two ago, we had enough savings on January 1st to retire (I'm retired and 51, wife is 54). My goal was to protect that first, make additional money second. Nobody knows what the next 6 months or year will hold. Worst case scenario, we can't find a cure for this in a year or two. If Trump or Pence or Pelosi (or any number of "important" people) get this and die, then panic could push things further. We also don't know what the reinfection rate is with this virus. China, Singapore and other areas are going to be the test bed to find out. If the market drops further and doesn't recover for years, we are still able to do what we were planning to do with what we have. If the market dropped and we lost 30,40, 50%, we would have to delay retirement and I may have to return to work. I'm probably the most conservative investor posting here. Everyone stay safe and wash your hands.
  15. Hi BST, I'm well, although a little bored. I've only been out twice in the past 3 weeks. (once to the bank, and once to my MIL's empty rental house). Hope you are doing well also. I'll pop in from time to time to browse the threads, but I've found other places to share my opinions without all the faux utopia censorship. Everyone stay safe. Stay in touch with those important to you. I'd also suggest that you document and save memories from this time. This is a significant moment in history that you will remember for the rest of your life and share with future generations.
