Btw Longnine I am a bit distressed you view me as some kind of stock pimp. At todays levels I think there is risk in it. I have no where near half my investments in stocks, and what I do have is lfrom stuff bought before 2013. I have farmland, rental house, my own house, pm, coins, and a little art. I simply believe a person should be diversified. A true stock person thinks I am stupid for investing in pm at all. I have always defended pm to stock people and get crucified for it, yet when I defend other assets here I get crucified again. I do not believe in either extreme. I am sure I am wrong, but since I do not know whicj way I am wrong I invest in both. I am not the enemy you think I am.
