Re: Interest Rates

Re: changing economy

Hmmm. Based on your post I am going to assume you have read a book called "Stuffocation". Sad to say (and actually supported in part by a "reading between the lines" of that particular book) I don't think that there is going to be [more]

Re: Help! Coffee Problem!

I use a French Press and sometimes I get a little sloppy when I make my coffee in the morning and I end up with little flecks of ground coffee in my cup. I am ashamed to say I just think of it as bonus caffeine and drink the stuff right down.

Re: Social Security - only pole in the tent?

Oh my goodness me no. Revocable and irrevocable trusts are treated quite differently by the IRS. To repeat - my trust is irrevocable because I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to deal with the tax issues that the assets in a revocable trust would [more]

Re: Social Security - only pole in the tent?

A revocable trust also avoids probate.

Yep but there are tax issues with revocable trusts that I didn't feel like giving the time of day. After 40 years of continuing legal education re Wills, Trusts, Estate Planning and Probate I [more]

Re: Social Security - only pole in the tent?

When she dies, the house will most likely go to the bank to cover the mortgage, as they have the house as collateral, but should there be anything left, that will go to Medicaid to recover their expenses. They will have an automatic lien on the [more]

Re: Social Security - only pole in the tent?

Like AngelMay I can live on my social security. But I think that only works if, when you reach retirement age, you have absolutely no debt, a place to live and relatively good health. If your health goes south, regardless of your health insurance, [more]

Re: Turns out

My guess is Rep turnout is high because of the Trump factor, the fight for the future of the Rep party (establishment vs looney tunes), and the frustration of 8 years of Obama in the WH.

I think this is very true and that most [more]

Re: 'Even the bank was surprised'

Oh hell no. Just once, instead of thrifty investing, I want to learn that the sequestered millions were the result of a misspent youth on the Riviera involving international jewel thieves, skullduggery and art forgeries; that the ensuing quiet life [more]

Yes but I think one of the reasons it bothers a lot of people is that drugs are often a necessity NOT some luxury item or "keeping up with the Jones's" purchase. If people need a lifesaving drug you [more]

Re: God Bless Satanic Temple

"Moment of silence" is code for believers bowing their heads in silent prayer, while the rest of us sit idly by and do nothing. It is a few degrees less offensive than spoken prayer.

Re: Ablative Palin Absolute (yay!)

Loren I think we do have the "vocative" case in English. It's just that instead of a different ending to denote the vocative we capitalize the first letter of the name and put a comma after it. I have a sneaking suspicion that all languages [more]

Re: Bull God Toreador Priest

Bullfighters could just touch the bull with a paintball, gaining more kudos for paint on the horns and head, for example.

Re: LA Times: Retirement Nomads

It is less expensive than rent. A mobile home requires monthly rental payments, taxes, repairs and insurance.

I'm wondering if there isn't a psychological component to opting for an RV as well. The idea that you can easily move on [more]
