I've been trying to follow Jade Helm form overseas, but no local news coverage seems to have any information on it. I have been using the SALUTE reports on counterjadehelm.info, and frankly, I am a little disturbed by what I have been reading. Both the Texas and Louisiana EYEWITNESS reports say t...View Topic - Replies (19)

We make too much to contribute to a Roth IRA or to qualify for a tax-deductible contribution to a traditional IRA.

I run 4-5 days a week and almost always at 4:30-5:00 am. Typical runs are 5-10 miles. Occasionally when I have the chance to run mid morning, say 9:00, I find that I feel 10x better and easily drop 30 sec off my pace. Is it just better blood flow? Warmer muscles? Something else? ...View Topic - Replies (9)
