    But the My-zes option that would be the closest I can phoneme to proper German isn't an option. I did take 4 years of German in high school, and that was the choice I was looking for.

    Go Forward With Courage

    When you are in doubt, be still, and wait;
    when doubt no longer exists for you, then go forward with courage.
    So long as mists envelop you, be still;
    be still until the sunlight pours through and dispels the mists
    -- as it surely will.
    Then act with courage.

    I used to think it was My-zes until I went to DC last July and saw a sign that read "MISES SAVES." Then I realized it was supposed to approximately rhyme with Jesus. Incidentally, that sign was kinda blasphemous. Also, that rally was frickin' awesome!!

    it rhymes with the peanut butter cup
    you can buy now using an elevated dollar to get in on things that are poised to go way up when the dollar collapses. If he's right, and I think he is, his profits are going to be ridiculous. I've already showed by referencing some mining stocks that you can make a killing in this market playing Schiff's investment strategy.

    It is not a German name. It is Jewish.

    Probably the same way Jinx the cat refers to multiple mice.

    This video clip should clarify the pronunciation.
