Can't give this a thumbs up because of Ramsey's thoughts on gold

I critiqued Dave Ramsey & his negative attitude on gold in 2009 in an article;

Dave Ramsey Doesn’t Know the First Thing About Gold http://bit.ly/H1flKR

Price of gold had risen from $900 to $1,100 that year (2009).

I wrote a subsequent article in January 2011 where the price of gold rose to $1,368 (and subsequently to just north of $1,900)

These "guru" types sell books and while are good for people (like Suzy Orman is) for debt and small time financial planning issues, are not the people that the wealthy turn to for advice. 1/4 of his books are for kids, which I am ok with. He also caters to the Christian crowd, so is a "trusted" source because of it.

If he throws in some controversy, like criticizing Obamacare, he comes from the Christian Right point of view, not a Libertarian one in my opinion. It allows him to sell more books to his base.
