23 Americans would be Alive Today - Beerinthepocket
It is my firm belief that if Romney were president today those 23 Americans on board that plane would still be alive. Obama did not take Romney seriously when he warned of the danger that Russia poses to American interests and now 23 Americans are dead. It seems like Romney is vindicated dail...

[link=(http://www.nola.com/news/baton-rouge/index.ssf/2014/06/uber_lyft_baton_rouge_council.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter)]LINK[/link] Looks like Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar have been approved in Baton Rouge. I suspect this will be a boon to the restaurant/bar scene in Baton Rouge. I...

Employer provided insurance premiums - Beerinthepocket
So benefits enrollment at my company started today and it looks like for a single person with no children our premiums have gone up $46 a month or $66 if you are a smoker. Thanks Obama. I'm confused as to how paying $552 more a year is going to save me $2500. ...

Gas land 2 guy on the Daily show - Beerinthepocket
Did anyone else see this? It actually made me want to punch the tv screen. The guy that made the film is so biased that it was comical. He claims there is no way to prevent gas from getting into the ground water when fracing a well. Which is absolutely ridiculous as it is impossible on wells tha...

What are your thoughts on the fate of GameStop in this next generation of game consoles? I personally think that they will be successful through Q1 of 2014 from console sales, but then will begin the slow or possibly precipitous decline into bankruptcy....

First foray into forex - Beerinthepocket
So I conducted my first trade in foreign currency two weeks ago. Bought out of the money puts on FXA, Australian dollar ETF. I closed the trade today up 44.9%.

Time vesting bonus - Beerinthepocket
So I'm about to receive a ~$6k bonus that vests after 1 year. If I quit before that I have to pay $5k of it back. Since I am unsure if I will stay at this job I want to treat the $5k as an interest free loan to lever up a relatively safe, liquid investment. Any of the money folks have a recommendat...

IRA to Roth IRA - Beerinthepocket
I currently have an IRA with $5,900 in it. Would it be a wise move to transfer $5,000 of it into a Roth IRA since this year will most likely be my lowest earning year ever?(My job's start date is October 3rd so I'll only have 3 months of income)....

The Moral Arguement for Free Enterprise - Beerinthepocket
I thought this video may be of value to some of the liberals on this board since it is a emotionally based arguement for capitalism. Since dry basic logic doesn't seem to appeal to Rex, DA, and the like, maybe this logical yet more emotion based look at it will. (I actually doubt it, but it's worth ...

Highschools should require basic business courses - Beerinthepocket
I think that requiring a course taught at the senior level in highschool covering the basics of economics, finance, and accounting would greatly decrease the amount of misunderstanding and misinformation that circulates between the average people in our country. So many people seem to lack an elemen...

Those who did not support Romney at first - Beerinthepocket
I personally did not support Romney during the primary season.

Oil Company Taxation - Beerinthepocket
Why is it that many of those on the left complain about the "tax breaks" that oil companies supposedly receive? I just took a look at XOM's 10-K and you can plainly see that its effective tax rate for 2009, 2010, and 2011 was 47%, 45%, and 46% respectively. That is plainly a higher tax burden th...
