Re: Bye-bye Sweden

A new law will come into effect in Sweden after Christmas 2014, that will allow people to be prosecuted for criticizing immigration or politician’s unwillingness to tackle the issue.

I wonder if it's illegal to criticize the law that [more]

Re: Paul Krugman Call Your Office

“A disturbing editorial in a CUNY grad-student newspaper calls for rioters protesting the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown to arm themselves and wage violent war with cops.

Students at Brandeis University spent Monday effusively supporting Khadijah Lynch, their fellow student who took to Twitter to celebrate the brutal, execution-style murder of two New York Police Department officers this weekend.

Re: $400 emergency without borrowing money?

That sounds excellent, but I have one suggestion regarding the contents of the safe. I'd make sure the insurance policies, or copies of them, are also in there.

Thanks for the thought, Nancy. I have copies of our wills in the safe, [more]

Re: $400 emergency without borrowing money?

I keep some emergency moola in a fire safe, along with the birth certificates and passports. We had an AC failure recently and needed a new unit. So, to cover >$3K, we can get about half of it just from our emergency bank account. For the other [more]

Re: Why do collectivists visit this board?

I may be covering old territory here, but is your screen name based on the JJ Cale song They Call Me the Breeze?

Yes, that's exactly correct. Also, you're the first person to ask or point it out. .

Re: Why do collectivists visit this board?

I thought that was a reasonable question.

So, i took a look at the liberal version of Retire Early.

I think that board is lucky to get a dozen posts a week. Apparently, liberals dont like talking to each other. And I have to

Re: We owe slave reparations

Some of those who would *pay* slave reparations:
-Descendants of slaves who have jobs
-Descendants of immigrants who came to this country long after the US Civil War ended

Re: 1 mil for retirement is enough?

I struggle to spend more than 50K a year. I'm just a frugal type. In a year, I'll be forced by Uncle Sam to take out money from the IRA, untouched to date, and it will buy me a nice new car before taxes each year. Guess I'll have to buy a new [more]

Re: graduation gift ideas?

Sorry...late to the party. I asked my son a similar question a couple years back, and one of the things he suggested for HS graduation was to get a removable hard drive. I see the 3 TB size in now like $120, on sale for less.

Re: Millennial Parents Sink Under Weight of Debt

Also, someone else said that 2,500 a month for 30 years is 9 million dollars. You added an extra zero in there. It is actually 900,000. Still a lot of money, but a far, far cry from 9 million.

Re: Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be

The Movers and Shakers have a bias towards degrees from elite colleges. The easy connection is that the elite college molded someone into an exceptional person.

Re: WD-40!

The WD-40 itself isn't a solvent, but there are chemicals in the can with it that keep the lube dispersed so it can be sprayed. Plus, there's propellant. I think those other chemicals are what's helping the cleaning effort. Other spray lubes might [more]

Re: Sam's Club Membership

Sam's Club Membership

With a family of six, we buy a lot of items in bulk: Scads of groceries, toilet paper, etc. Sam's Club is the best place to get most of those things. Years ago, my wife's friend, who runs a small cosmetics business, offered to put my wife on her [more]
