Re: Crypto-currencies

What are yalls thoughts on Ripple? We have a little Ripple. Bought some back when you could buy it on their website (2 years ago?). Recently picked up a few more.

Re: Crypto-currencies

Now I’m up $670 since 12/22, and up $181 since 6:30 this morning. A friend of mine made a little over $4000 in the last 24 hours. It’s up to $723 of profit now. It's only a profit when you sell. The question is.......... when do you sell? Still a Ponzi. I don't think you understand what a Ponzi rea...

Re: Crypto-currencies

Keep in mind that every transaction is a taxable event now. Before the new tax bill passed, some people believe that you could shelter yourself until you transitioned back to fiat through like-kind exchanges.

Re: Crypto-currencies

I bought a small amount of Bitcoin and Litecoin last weekend. Allegedly, I've made over 50% on the small investment. I'm not going to be someone putting up a mortgage though... That's insane. https://www.cnbc.com/2017/12/11/people-are-taking-out-mortgages-to-buy-bitcoin-says-joseph-borg.html Now the...

Re: Quality range time today

Yes, outdoor is the best. I am a member of North Texas Shooters Assoc. I waited about one year until I was able to buy a membership from someone that moved away. There is a waiting list, get on the list, if someone moves away or other life change, then an email goes out if the membership is for sal...

Re: Concealed Carry Reciprocity is on the Move: Your Lawmakers Need to Hear from You NOW!

I’m curious how long it’ll be until it’s taken up by the senate. And hopefully the bills stay merged.
