Keep the car, if you get a 2015 Toyota you'll have the babes flocking, then you'll date one for a year, she'll marry you for your money (you did just buy a late model Toyota after all), you'll get divorced after 2 years and she'll take half the Toyota leaving you driving a 20 year old Geo Metro with...

I guess I would support this but acknowledge that it is a little hypocritical given my stance on state's rights.[/quote]
I think you are looking at this the wrong way. This is the federal government giving folks back a right that should not have been limited in the first place.

I'm obviously not talking about LSU. The median salary of an LSU MBA graduate is $57.5k. There's a 99% chance he's making more than that now....

7-8 years in Big 4 public accounting puts you at the senior manager level. Making you over qualified for many positions, pigeon holeing you into an external reporting or tax manager director/manager role at a public company, and under qualified for anything outside of accounting. I would only recomm...

[quote]What's the upside after spending the money on a MBA? From my experience, once you have a CPA then no one really cares what else you have because the CPA trumps them all. I just don't see a MBA really adding much to your earning potential if you are already a CPA [/quote]

A gas tax is one of the few taxes I can get behind. Everyone that drives a gasoline vehicle is hit equally based on use. I don't know why the tax wasn't indexed to inflation in the first place....

This could be a very good deal depending on the circumstances. Essentially $1k a month in perpetuity, make them adjust for inflation and call it a day. Unless it would for some reason make the rest of the land worthless or your land is the only place they have the option to put the tower....

if you can do the following it's a definite buy:
1. Buy a controlling share
2. Stack the board in your favor
3. Become buddies with Mark Zuckerberg
4. Convince your new buddy to buy Twitter at a premium paid in Facebook shares.
If you can't do that I'd just buy Facebook shares....

It's not damn near impossible to get 8 dudes in the club at the same time. You just talk to the VIP host and get bottle service with a $3k-$10k minimum depending on the club and the DJ.
It is in fact impossible if you are trying to just pay cover and go in.

200 hours (25 days) PTO to use for anything (vacation, sick, personal). Still have to charge almost 2000 hours to clients each year so it's really more like flex time than PTO bc you have to make up for it by working overtime. We do get holidays on top of those PTO days, usually 8-12 days a year dep...
