Re: U.S.Homeownership Rate Drops to Lowest Since

My assertion is, what's been pushed actively on younger people (people say 18-35) over the last decade or so (maybe longer, I wasn't keeping notes) is a very different set of life objectives. Don't get married (stay "free" [more]

Re: Live in one state and sell home in anohter

I don't see how this can be true. You would acquire the cost basis of the person who gave you the house. In my case, my parents had given their house to my brother and me, so our cost basis was their basis, and we used that to figure the [more]

Re: retirement...I'm boring...

I also found after retiring that WORK---- is overrated.

It took you that long to find out. I know that now and I still have another 5-6 years before retiring.

Re: Poll: Allow politics on Retirement Investing

What part of "TMF does not monitor or moderate or police the boards" was unclear to you?

What part of "TMF polices the METAR board through the Report the Post feature" was unclear to you?

Re: Poll says ban posts on US politics

TMF is not the moderator for off topic posts on a public board.

Actually, they can be. The METAR board has a "no-politics" policy and it's enforced by TMF through the Report this Post feature.

Re: The AR-15 is the musket of its era

Re: Still on the Fence,,,,

I have a new laptop already on Windows 10. I have a 7.5 year old desktop that has Windows 7. I will not be upgrading the desktop. Since support for Windows 7 lasts until 2020, that'll mean my desktop will be almost 12 years old by then. If I [more]

Re: Thank You Senator Sanders

The real challenge will be when Sanders and Warren run for the Presidency next time.

IRA in whose name? Earned income is required to contribute to an IRA. Withdrawals without penalty are limited.

I have a dog door on my house for more than 5 years. My dog door is mounted on the rear door because there wasn't any other real good place to put it. Also my house is all-brick so I didn't want to cut a hole in the wall. For a dog door, I [more]
