I do not care, I want gold
Otto at Inca Kola News found this little gem. It is awesome that it is an obvious "beating up the straw man" example. It pokes some serious fun at the "gold bug" mentality. Or more specifically it points out how a gold non-bug (?) views a gold bug's position. I have outlined my thoughts on gold here: binve's Gold Foil Hat Zone: More Thoughts on Gold's Massive Bull Market - http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/binves-gold-foil-hat-zone/403421 and here: Why I hold Gold: Why I am a Long Term Optimist and consider holding gold and Optimistic Endeavor, and Why I think the Stagflationary Scenario is more likely Macroeconomically in the Intermediate term (next several years) - http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/why-i-hold-gold-why-i-am-a/402614.
At any rate, this was quite humorous. Because the level of discourse in discussing gold is pretty much at this level a lot of times. Several of us on Caps try to elevate it, and give honest objective analysis on it, but let's face it, gold is a very emotional topic. And people who think gold is stupid / a barbarous relic quite often reduce the gold investor's position to that of a "gold bug" and assume that all gold investors think like this poor chap on the right.
So for all gold-haters and gold-bug-haters, enjoy the video. And for all gold investors and "gold bugs" just enjoy the one-dimensionalizing of your position.
