Re: End RoboCalls!

I vaguely recall that you need to re-up on the list once a year or you fall off it--don;t know if that's still true.

Re: New credit card effect on FICO?

Re: Lots of ST gains. what to do to avoid taxes?

Re: Advantages to children of working mothers

Once upon a time feminists promoted the idea of "non discrimination" in employment. Now you abandon that in favor of programs of rank female privilege.

Thank you for making my point.
