  1. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

      You seem to have missed the part where I care if the info is solid, and not about the age of the messenger.   I was only refuting the competence of Peter Schiff, not claiming that his son is a prodigy. The Schiff family is simply not a good example of shining brilliance, but if we are going with the logic that being as correct as a broken clock is all it takes, then I will come down on the side of the son and not the father.   I prefer to take the advice of people like Michael Saylor, Knut Svanholm, and Max Kaiser, myself.

    It is more the lack of respect that his son has for him, rather than the financial advice that I find telling. But as long as the info is solid, I really don't care if it came from a 2-year-old. Does age guarantee quality?

    Schiff's own son mocks him publicly on his gold stance. If the best support of him is "even a broken clock is right twice a day", then I see no reason to look at him as an authority.

    Peter Schiff has shown to be a very poor source of investment information. Take what he says with a grain of salt.
  5. Investing money

    Depending on what your tolerance for "low risk" is will point you in different directions. I have found this article to be very informative for the value of "safe haven" assets:

      Buy the dip, as always.
  7. Niederlassungserlaubnis: How long does it take?

    Just to bump this topic and add my own experience:   I am in the middle of NRW (not in the cities).   I applied for the NE in the first week of March (about 9 weeks ago) with a Blue Card/B1/21 Months living here. I have not heard anything back yet, but my Blue Card expires at the end of May, so I expect to at least get the letter confirming my application before then - that will be a total of 13 weeks.   I have not had any kind of interview yet, and I am not sure whether one will be required due to the changes in lockdown measures.
  8. Police brutality in the USA

      That's fine. You don't have to read. But I have no interest in spoon-feeding you like an infant. I don't really care if you believe the truth. But I felt that I should point out the falsehoods, at the very least.
  9. Police brutality in the USA

      We both know that you are being disingenuous, but thanks for making it very clear to everyone. I linked to a series of articles and videos that specifically cover the details of this case in various degrees.   Like I said, I have led do water. But you are more than welcome to stick your head in the sand instead.
  10. Police brutality in the USA

    Why should I try to educate people who don't care to educate themselves? I encourage skepticism - which is why you should check the info and come to your own conclusions.
  11. Police brutality in the USA

      So I led you to water. . . .
  12. Police brutality in the USA

    @theGman You repeating that I am wrong does not make it so. Sorry to burst your bubble. I will take your bait, though, as much as I know it won't make any difference.  has very good objective coverage of the trial as it happened.
  13. Police brutality in the USA

    Yes, that is what I'm saying. Welcome to the point, @El Jeffo.
  14. Police brutality in the USA

    Like I said, if you want to look at all of the evidence, I would encourage you to do that and come to rational conclusions. Jurors have stated that they only convicted because they were terrified for the safety of themselves and their families if they acquitted. But again, no point in arguing with fanatics. You can lead a horse to water, but can't make him drink.
  15. Bitcoin - a decentralised digital currency

    @fraufruit That is misinformation. The Bitcoin network uses a tiny fraction of what the banking system uses, which it is capable of replacing. Bitcoin is a much "greener" solution than anything else out there.
