'...Good to know who the idiots are.'
If you had followed this forum, you wouldn't need to ask questions that have been answered many, many times over, instead of grandstanding like you did.
A wise man once said; 'I have found the idiot....it is me'.
Have a wonderful Christmas.
'...Nothing better than simple courtesy. I wasn't addressing you, either, unless you are also relbochat like jaybaker and lifeaftertrx apparently. LOL ..'
That's your problem. This is a PUBLIC forum. There are no private messages options. All reply if they want to. Learn forum etiquette first before you open your blabber.
Nice work, augustusloop. If this 'tall feller' would've done his 'Due Diligence' like relbo did he wouldn't have a need to attack relbo. Now, he can go place his tail between his legs and hide in the corner.
Relbo, wait until after the holidays to answer any questions....LOL
Nothing better than a pizzing contest....LOL
You started out so well ...your 'buttinski' reply was uncalled for. This is a public forum. Anyone can join. Only comedy clowns has restrictions.
Though it has been entirely unreported in the West, China has been saying all week that it stands ready to support Russia if its help is needed.
With $3 trillion of reserves the sums necessary would from China’s point of view be small change.
The only condition is that Russia must first ask China for assistance, as this editorial in the semi-official English language Chinese newspaper Global Times sets out.
Global Times belongs to The People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist Party of China, so an editorial published by Global Times has official sanction and represents the opinion of the Chinese government.
Putting the question beyond any further doubt were comments pledging support for Russia from the Chinese Foreign and Commerce Ministers as reported by the Russian TASS news agency, which we also reproduce below...
...China's stance is clear, and it does not want Russia to collapse.
The following article appeared on the website of the Russian news agency TASS.
China believes Russia will be able to overcome the current economic problems, and is ready to offer whatever assistance if needed, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in an interview with Hong Kong’s Fenghuang television channel on Sunday.
“We believe that Russia has opportunities and knowledge to overcome the current problems in the economy. The Chinese-Russian relations of strategic partnership are at a high level, we are always supporting and helping our friend. If the Russian side needs it, we shall offer all possible support we may have,” the foreign minister said.
China’s Minister of Commerce Gao Hucheng told Fenghuang while commenting on the situation with rouble: “As for certain fluctuations in the stock market and the fluctuations in the currency market - they may be of certain interest for some capital investors, and from the practical cooperation point of view - we are still calm and promote actively our cooperation.”
'They are also buying the gold they produce on their own turf.
They are lucky that they can do this...'
Good point. Can't convince the average 'schmo' on this board.
I bought at $4, many years ago, and unloaded most of my shares at $8.15.......I'm not as smart as many of you, and chicken to boot, so when TRX was heading down after hitting $9 +/-, or something close to it, I decided at $8.15 to bail. I still have a small play waiting 'for the ship to come in'......It doesn't look good.
I like to read Pravda, Russia Times, TASS, Russia Insider, etc. It gives me an 360 view of what's 'coming down the pike', rather a myopic point-of-view
Very few people understand what Putin is doing at the moment. And almost no one understands what he will do in the future.
No matter how strange it may seem, but right now, Putin is selling Russian oil and gas ONLY for physical gold.
How long will the West be able to buy oil and gas from Russia in exchange for physical gold?
And what will happen to the US petrodollar after the West runs out of physical gold to pay for Russian oil, gas and uranium, as well as to pay for Chinese goods?
This is called “Checkmate”, ladies and gentlemen. The game is over.
