Re: OT vehicle reliability

I expect that within a couple of years Tesla will be in the top 10. Last I checked they are American.

Re: SS & Pension as part of "cash cushion&q

Why, then, does EVERYONE have to be in this program that, no matter how you slice it, takes more from them than it provides back to them?

The difference is that the fixed income investment can be converted to cash. The SS cannot.

Okay. So that's one way that they're different. I think we can call that an advantage for the "equivalent" fixed [more]

Re: Strategies on TSLA

Re: SS & Pension as part of "cash cushion&q

Rayvt, you've made a rather complicated response to something that ought to be fairly simple, and is in my eyes. You're throwing in motivation and possible use of the argument (I guess that's my fault for mentioning why I want to use the argument), [more]

Re: Stanford!!!

Stanford is good. My homeschooled kid did several classes there (informally) while he was in high school. Nice campus.
