with no substantial evidence? What in God's name are we doing?
After the new "developments" that arose today, whether true or untrue, how is this justifiable?
Either we just let 5 top terrorists free, or we just imprison people for the hell of it, and successfully added 5 new terrorists to th...

Any recommendations on a day road trip from New Orleans to see some plantations? Strangely, living here my whole life I've never been to any plantations or tours or such, and would very much like to go.
Planning to go this Sunday with my gf. I was thinking maybe Oak Alley and St. Joseph, since t...
| Money Talk|| Timing the market - rintintin on 3/16/14 at 7:06 pm|
I know timing the market is taboo to most investors. A fools errand it is. We simply can't predict what it's going to do day in and day out. Many professionals, and some of the best investors of all time abide by the "hold through thick and thin" rule.
Given that, for shits and giggles, I decid...

The main reason I didn't want FSU to win. For some reason the media thinks his childish slang is "well spoken" and he's oh so mature for his age. I'm sorry for all that like him, but he aggravates the shite out of me. I won't be watching ESPN for a good few months.

Opened a Roth and SEP IRA for the new year through Ameritrade. These are my first retirement accounts and I plan to not touch them for 30 or so years.
Basically what I would like to do is use one to purchase some well diversified mutual funds or ETF's, make regular contributions, and pretty much...

From what I've read they seem to be much more advantageous for self-employed folks over Traditional or Roth IRA's. The maximum contribution per year is nearly 10x's that of other IRA's, you can use it to invest in any number of investments including real estate, stocks, etc, and you can "borrow" up ...

regardless of what happens in the game.
I watched the game in a predominately Bama bar, and I have to say Bama fans are pretty boring miserable people. They emulate their coach perfectly. I felt like I was at a funeral.
Sure we lost, our season is over, and we'll bash our goofy coach and team...

This is kind of a spin off thread, but something I've been interested in for a while now, and am growing more and more concerned with as I am in the infancy of my investing career(and probably moreso because of my naivety on the subject).

we had went 10-2 again, with our only losses to Bama at Bama, and maybe Oregon? Then we went ahead and did our annual (before this year) beatdown of a team in a bowl game.
I believe it would, as I look to how excited everyone was after last season. Funny thing is, we wouldn't have finished ranke...
