Re :Dollars Fall Felt

I recently booked a trip to Puerto Vallarta, MX for me and another TFMR member (since I like her, she shall remain nameless) and the dollar's devaluation hit me right between the eyes. Only a few weeks ago, a dollar was worth about 21 nuevo pesos. Since then, something I have never seen before in over forty years of vacationing in Mexico has happened. The buck has declined to about 18.5 pesos which just hasen't happen before....but it just did.

One would think that with that kind of weakness in the dollar, gold and silver would move up against the dollar....but it didn't happen. Just the opposite happened. Gold and silver both both headed down with gusto. I was not amused whatsoever. I still have what I and probably most members would consider 'substantial holdings' (being defined as over 100K$ in oro puro) and have actually been nibbling at platinum recently, albeit not in a large way (thankfully).

When you consider the fact that Mexico has just elected what amounts to a communist for their next 'el presidente', most would think the MX Peso would head south with a vengeance. Exactly the opposite took place. The peso strengthened against the greenback like I have never before seen. Weird. Just plain weird. With stocks at 25K, I just can't see that party ending well but so far, I've been dead wrong....which rubs my fur the wrong way, big time.

When I try to look at the bigger picture and see that the dollar has fallen against the MX peso and that gold and PM's in general are falling against the dollar, it leaves me with a giant WTF and a matching headache to go with it. In response, I am forced to travel to Mexico and eat and drink to excess which in the past has left me somewhat debilitated but far less inclined or able to worry about it.

I am still a Donald Trump supporter basically because the alternative is still Satan in drag. Not to mention the fact that I have absolutely no intention of lobotomizing myself and becoming a latter day snowflake. It seems to me that all of the things we have learned about financial markets are now null & void and the entire world has turned upside down. For the record, I didn't do it but somebody sure as hell did.

Frankly, I would not want to be Craig right now since he seems to be plagued by the "can't win for losing" thing. Keep the faith dude and lead us out of the septic lagoon we all seem to be swimming in. When he says what makes perfect sense, the 'powers that be' seem to be out to make logic a bad joke....and convince the world that it's bat sh!t crazy. I have to admit that they are starting to gain ground with me. So, as I said at the start, I'll be looking forward to a pleasurable fit of self-medication and excess in a nice foreign country. That is if you know your way around and have enough brains to stay in the tourist areas....which I assure you I do.

In closing, I'd like to wish you all the best of luck which it seems like we will all need. (Be advised that this excludes those that still support Hildabeast and her vermin ilk to which I wish a pox on their respective houses....but you already knew that.)

@ AlienEyes:

The exchange rates are difficult for anyone to understand. Your story reminds me of Jimmy W. who lives in Richards Bay, South Africa. He told me that he remembers when a rand was equal to a dollar. Yes, they had their problems, group areas act and the rest but they also had lots of gold mines and a booming economy.

I see that today's rate is 13.33 rand/$1. I have enjoyed their exchange rate in the past, converting fiat dollars into rand and buying some great deals in RSA. However, that once great nation has jumped head first into governmental corruption and is headed into death and destruction. Before it is over, the natives will pray for a return to the pre- Mandela era but nothing will stop the folly of those who think they are entitled to everything, based on their skin color and the laws written to discriminate against all others. jmo Jim

I almost forgot...

Since I don't have the ability to PM at present, I'd like to invite my Mexican friends and expatriates to contact me here on DOTS and I will advise you if you see this, when we will be at the Hyatt Ziva and offer to buy you a margarita (or tw0) if you can make it.

That's what I'm investing in.

@AlienEyes

You are correct! The laws as written in the USA, have continually stolen the freedoms of the citizens. The corruption started long ago and PC has stolen the actual thought processes of the individual. It seems to be illegal to state one's position on almost everything.

When I examine my future graph, looking at America, the ME, RSA and Europe, the lines are approaching a "death cross" and nothing on earth will change the course of the lines. Unfortunately, to state the outcome of my graph would be extremely negative and totally lacking in PC. jmo Jim

@ NW VIEW

True but your example does not bode well for the US of A. It might just prove to be well chosen and extremely accurate since we seem to be suffering from the exact same type of overt stupidity. (PC is no doubt no less than pure evil and an attempt to legitimize lies. My Bible still says, "Thou shalt not lie" and makes no mention of lying to make the first 20% of a standard bell curve distribution feel 'good' about themselves as being an exception).

If it does prove to be the case, it will only serve to force my return to Mexico for a much longer stay.

You say:

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Much of the activity upon these forums and the main thread will change, as time travels onward. Many read the comments and few ever respond. Some are just tired of being challenged over anything they say or think. Really, it is similar to how the left DNC wants to attack everything and anything. They cut off anyone who does not agree with their false view of life/politics/governments/social issues/etc.

In time, as I have stated, many will seek out people who actually see what is truly happening. Most look for a prophet to tell them the future, however, give me a person who "actually" sees what is currently happening. Today's false prophets, even outside of the religious community, are blinded by their puffed up views of themselves, their education, and thinking they have insights beyond the scope of the common man. In time their folly will also be exposed.

Oh well, much could be said as we watch the unfolding of events, a steamroller upon the horizon, and until it arrives, most will continue to walk the blinded pathway of destruction. jmo Jim

Hiding the Truth!

First, here is an article on the destruction of a once great nation, RSA:

>>>>>>>>>>>>

https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/270960/racist-communist-famine-grows-so...

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I was traveling again, within South Africa, as Nelson Mandela was first running for president, a shoe in. As I walked the streets, thousands of black supporters were wearing t-shirts. One side a picture of Nelson Mandela and the other side, Russian Communist Vladimir Lenin. When I came back home to the NW, I told of my experience and the people just did not believe me. They said surly the national news outlets would have shown the connection of Mandela and the communists. Nope, America wanted to see the nation fall into a pit and now many will lose their lives and everything else. The nation will fold into violence and terror like it has never seen.

I have been in the RSA many times and watched the continual demise of a once great nation, and we hear little from the fake news media about the truth. jmo Jim

Socialism?

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Well Winston, if your statement is truth, why do we have nations, governments and even the Seattle City council trying to make it work?

Yes socialism is not needed in heaven for all is provided through the Lord Himself. All things necessary have been paid for at the finished Work at the Cross. Hell really does not have a true socialism. The religious leader, of that pit, has robbed everyone of life, liberty, freedom and the occupants are stuck in a system, where nothing is provided for them by those leaders, within their abode. However, it is better, here and now, to provide a cup of cold water to those in need than to hope someone will give them the same in hell. jmo Jim

A Great Awakening!

Many are finally beginning to see the corruption and lies within politics. Many have just began to see the fake history of the DNC. Many seeing that they have been herded into slavery, upon a false plantation. Many have voiced their revelations on #WalkAway.

All of this is good, however, there are greater revelations, differing areas, that still need to be addressed through insight/revelations/discernment, while finally WalkingAway from following of man made detours, coming back to the New Blood Covenant.

The political arena may set some free going forward, however, walking away from the folly of man made systems of religions "may" set some on the Pathway of Life Eternal. jmo Jim

Jim,

With all due respect, that is absolute bullshit. JMO

You left DOTs because you were offended that people asked you to stop quoting scripture. People over the years asked you over and over again to stop trying to convert and preach your version of religion. It wasn’t because they were intolerant. People were offended and perceived it as an encroachment.

You summarily dismissed information that was founded in reality, well reasoned and often supported by mountains of evidence.

The thread of faith died. Not because anybody encroached upon the space. Because the dynamic of a forum as the research says is that people rely on the few to provide information. Nobody encroached into that space. Nobody told you that you were wrong for your religious views. There was no encroachment of over educated, pompous community members. But there was an absence of differing viewpoints, and scholarly research. It was nothing more than a bible class. The vast majority of people, even Christians, didn’t come here to read that.

Over 2 million people have read DOTS and it continues to grow. Strange that so many people would read something despite the presence of pompous, over educated members. I generally don't read things I don't like. Maybe there is something tantalizing that happens over there. Maybe sometimes even truth comes out.

You sit here alone, isolated in this forum without any feedback and then you give an unsubstantiated reason why nobody engages with you. That’s your opinion JMO. It might have nothing to do with reality. You speak for yourself. And yourself alone.

Alien Eyes has a great amount of trouble responding to contrary views and decides to respond with mockery and ad hominem attacks. The archives is filled with his mocking, interruptions into DOTS without an ounce of contribution similar to Barter.

This forum was opened by Nana because she refused to engage any form of lucid, well argued, and mostly polite rebuttals to her world view. She cited that DOTs was opened with a Christian viewpoint and was not designed for any type of debate. All she basically did was post link after link without much personal insight. that’s ok, but to say that nobody can respond is not the model of this website. She was not free to open a forum with the condition that it had to be Christian thought without question.

I almost never read this forum. I should have stayed with that model. However, I’m pretty sure you’re always availing yourself to the information being put on DOTS even if you reject it. Actually, I’m sure of it. Actually, the truth of the numbers is available for you to quote from the website. So alot of people view this forum is actually simply wrong. It gets very few clicks except by a small segment of the population.

This DOTS is a silo. Silo’s in business and politics are the most dangerous and destructive paradigm that an entity can endure. Because it seeks to protect it’s information and views away from anybody that would challenge them.

Pure unsubstantiated opinions of are little value to anybody. You are welcome to your opinion. It’s just that you detest anybody challenging your opinion. Instead you have chosen to accuse others of conceit when they challenge your thinking. Isn't that a form of conceit?

Most importantly, that’s not America. That’s not a representational republic. It’s nobodies fault that people can’t tolerate their views being questioned. And it sure as heck wasn’t how the founders of this country operated who got in the dirt and wrote long, long, well educated, well informed papers taking to deal with opposing view points. Heck some even shot each other with guns. And they were Christian too. Hey, I guess that's the price of liberty.

You curse the liberals but give a free pass to all the disinformation and social engineering. Even in the face of mountains of evidence, you summarily dismiss it. What’s the point in having a discussion if you simply ignore and dismiss things you don’t like?

Now you use your position in a silo to accuse others of causing a problem, Doesn’t make a difference if you are referring to me or some other individual. That again is not the American spirit. JMO. See how that works?

Keep posting here in isolation. Free from distraction, free from the over educated and pompous members of this community, free from the non-religious self appointed prophets, (some who keep calling it right) or join the community (which is how this website is designed) and be willing to share your insights and be willing to endure disagreement without running away and feeling as if you are being persecuted. Or maybe I should revive the other the 10 DOTS AG1969 opened to make a point about this type of thing. Or maybe I'll reopen Magpie's all Trump, All the Time, Don't tell me otherwise forum. That's useful to operate in that manner.

Or maybe everybody can grow up. Accept disagreement. Entertain alternative views and actually read the material that is put out for consideration.

There are other Christians on DOTS. That speak up when they feel their religion is attacked but do so in a lucid, well supported way. Christianity is a BIG UMBRELLA and you just have one version. You are entitled to it, but you are not entitled in a group setting to not have your views questioned and that call out those who do it as misguided. That's actually putting yourself on a pedestal.

Continue on. Sorry if I disrupted the discovery flow.

You have traveled across the DOTS, landing in an isolated forum, that has put a burr under your saddle. I am not here or there to correct your views for they are yours. I am not here to judge you or the people on DOTS. The enemy of all cannot stand in the Truth and always attacks. Ponder that for a season.

I am not looking for numbers to be in agreement nor to read the stars above, just standing as one who has a NW View. It is always interesting, when others are upset over someone having a differing View. It exposes our inner man to the world. jmo Jim

Do what you want, because you will anyway. But you should consider not castigating others and playing pin the tail on the donkey and refusing to acknowledge your own blemishes.

And no, you have up backed up my point. You made a bad analogy by equating me with a liberal (you couldn't be further from the truth) which is an egregious error of logic and put it forth as truth. And then you would curse me for telling you that you are wrong.

You're not entitled to unchallenged point of views nor are you entitled to frame people as fascists because they disagree with you. You've done that before.

You feel persecuted when people disagree with you. You name call but you do it in a nice Christian more subtle level.

And you're out and out wrong about who reads and why people don't engage here. Learn to read the forum counter. That's a measurable fact.

Education never hurt anybody. Learning how to think because once you do that, you are then free to take or throw out any particular information.

Quiet frankly, I find you posting in solitude just to be strange. Nothing more. NOthing less.
