Re: Selective prosecution

The DA will never say they are going to leave the prostitutes and bookies alone because they have bigger fish to fry. Obama's prononcement was actually de jure, whereas the DA is just acting de facto. Or at least that is the way I read it. [more]

Re: IRA to Roth and RMD

Whoever posted that was not correct. There is no mandatory income tax withholding from IRAs. The mandatory withholding only applies to distributions from employer sponsored plans, like 401ks and pension plans.

Thanks for clarifying. [more]
