    My worry is we will end up with a half in, half out arrangement, the leavers will be p*ssed, the remainers will still be p*ssed, and no democratic vote held in the UK will have any legitimacy ever again. That is worst case scenario. 
    Best case scenario is we leave without a deal.

    It should not matter what words are used. It should not matter what people do, if someone is offended so what? Get over it. That is the problem here. I am routinely offended by the words of others, deliberate words, the actions of certain people - yet there are no laws required to protect me. and nor should there be. Hate crime is a political weapon used to prevent expression, speech, discussion. It is not about protecting people from hate at all.  
    Every year we burn effigies of Guy Fawkes. Did you know he was a Catholic? Why is ok to burn Catholics every year but not cardboard grenfell towers? Should we start arresting people for burning Guy Fawkes because he was a Catholic? Where the hell does it end.

    A bit more to Rotherham than that I think. Not so much people not coming forward, more the police ignoring what was happening. The point is, it seems police are more interested in cruising the internet for people making jokes than they are keeping kids safe. 
    In this case why is it considered a public order offence? These chaps burnt a bit of cardboard in poor taste. A joke in poor taste. Yet it is being treated as hate crime, which is just the law being abused yet again. A waste of tax payer money.

    I can think of a few reasons why they fear being called racist. Investigation, stunted career prospects, reputation damage, potentially worst case loss of pension and livelihood if things don't go there way. A lot of risk. Everyone else was turning a blind eye for the same fears, council staff, social workers. Complete failure. 
    The politically correct culture and hate crime laws have contributed directly to the scale of rotherham and the countless other English towns and cities that have similar gangs that have since and are still coming out of the woodwork.

    This is a concept that is hard for a lot of new investors to understand, that there is no "universal value".  They assume, at first, that their home currency is universal because all the charts and assets are denominated in that currency, so the $us for the U.S. as an example.  Once they learn about forex markets and understand that the $us swings wildly over time vs. other "foreign" currencies, they start to look at charts of commodities, etc, in other currencies too to understand what is going on.  Then when they come to understand that commodities too, even silver and gold, also have fluctuations, and that even they aren't the best ruler to measure with, then they can start to understand the reality of the situation ... there is no ruler to measure with except that things move against one another in a constantly moving system, and that what you are actually trading is the ebb and flow of these potentials.  Tomorrow if it is discovered that some weird rare earth metal is the cure to cancer, that will be the most valuable commodity in the world.  If it is discovered that you have to have millions of barrels of horse piss to create artificial intelligence, there will be a run on horse piss.  Some of these trends change slowly, some quickly, and the markets don't move in a constant direction towards their potentials but more like a squirrel darting back and forth across the road before it gets to its favorite tree.  The key is to always be paying attention to what is going on, to keep your eye on it, and to never get too comfortable, if for no other reason than the markets are famous for doing whatever is necessary to screw the most people out of their hard earned money and putting it into the fewest hands.  But even that isn't a universal rule, because studies show that active traders do worse than chance, that in a lot of cases your average trader would do better if they flipped a coin to make their trading decisions.

    Your argument is circular. It's the perma-bull argment that stock investors cling on to - don't worry about price as stocks outperform everything in the long run, hang on through the dips. Yes it may work OK, but I also believe anyone applying some discipline and valuation analysis can do much better than these layman tactics.
    There are periods where gold outperforms silver, but also periods where silver outperforms gold. You absolutely NEED one set up the other. I can find you plenty of situations where silver has outperformed gold.. just look at the GSR chart lol. 
    The scatter 10yr scatter chart shows that fair historical value has beeb roughly ~63-64 for spot prices, however given the high spread on physical silver and the lifetime tendency for gold to outperform, I calculate a better estimation for fair price at GSR 68-69 - a price we are currently well above.

    With the UK VAT situation, I don't even see how this could be a topic of conversation.  I prefer silver in the U.S., but if I had VAT exposure there's no way I would buy silver, I would naturally move to exactly the same kinds of government minted coins that avoid these VAT charges as you guys gravitate to. You can't fight city hall.  If they are taxing silver, and not gold, dealing in gold is the obvious solution.

    It can go one of two ways now ...
    1) They can learn something, focus on trying to pass infrastructure, or whatever they can, and hope for the best in 2020.
    2) They can continue to demonize, do nothing but investigate, call everyone in the executive branch in to talk, go after the executive branch in the news for 2 years, and continue to "resist".
    I think we all know which of those two options is going to happen.
    I totally agree it's going to be great entertainment.
    I'm guessing Elizabeth Warren gets their nomination, and watching her go up against Trump will be hysterical - and it doesn't even matter who wins, if it's Trump, more Trump, if it's Warren, descent into total chaos.  Either way reset.

    No blue wave then. Democrats have the house majority but not the Senate amazing.
    This means the democrats will not reform and will continue to alienate half of the US population and struggle in 2020. The best thing that could have happened for the democrats was for them to lose, have a serious word with themselves and change up the record, get rid of the nutters, but now it will be two more years of the same partisan identity BS. 
    2020 will be good entertainment

    Final thought ...
    It was instructional.
    For Republicans they can take heart in knowing that for all the money that was thrown at the election, and they were literally outspent 3-to-1, Democrats couldn't buy the election.  It came down to the map .. in places Democrats could win, the suburbs, urban areas, they won ... they took Staten Island in NYC, for example .. and in places where they just don't have any real chance, Texas Senate, for example, they lost.  It's as simple as that.  There seems to be a limit to what money can buy.  That Texas election was 60 million $us ... for one election, and that guy lost to Cruz who really isn't even that good of a candidate.
    For Democrats, they can take heart in knowing that it will be very hard for Trump to win in 2020 using the same math as before, because a number of places that he won in 2016 went for the Democrats in this election.
    I watch it all in amazement, it is like watching the country rip itself apart.  It's not even anybodies fault, or its everybodies fault, it just seems like people have become so entrenched in their positions, so unwilling to negotiate, or even listen to each other, that there's nowhere to go but from bad to worse.
    It's winner take all politics ... nobody is in it for all of the American people anymore, at best they only care about half.
    And every election cycle it gets worse.
    Edit .. I was watching on the of major news network's coverage (I was watching them all at various times) and a very well known news caster on the channel said something like "In Pennsylvania's whatever district (I forget which district he mentioned) ... where men are a little more evolved ..." ... I mean seriously, that's what it's like now, "where men are a little more evolved", that's what our news coverage has become.  When you get the highest level of people in the news who have so much disrespect for half of the people who live in the same country as they do, a major news network, where does that leave us ?  How can there be middle ground, a place to negotiate from, when the highest most well paid news people in the entire country have no respect for half of the people in the country that they broadcast in.
    I have no idea where it is all headed .. but it's not headed anywhere good.
