You realize Dodd-Frank is the second worst piece of financial regulation next to Sarbanes Oxley right? Ask anyone with knowledge of finance law or anyone with involvement in the financial industry. It's the pinnacle of knee-jerk regulation....

re: If you had 10k to invest - Beerinthepocket
Pretty sure there was a what to invest $9k in a few weeks ago as well. Go to that thread and add $1k to what they said to do. Investment strategies are not going to change that much from having $1k-$300k to invest. Your options and strategy really only changes once you break the income or net wor...

re: "Investing" in Uber - Beerinthepocket
I'm happy they have surge pricing. When I left the LSU game in Houston I was able to hop right in an Uber. I did pay $80ish dollars for the ride, but that was well worth it for the four of us. If you don't think its worth the price DON'T PAY IT. It's simple....

re: What can republicans do to get back to their great success in the 1980s? - Beerinthepocket
The answer: Paul Ryan. Read his book "The Way Forward". That man has the most sensible policy ideas to fix our country's problems that I have ever heard. His ideas are very realistic and not the Republican talking points. I have trouble seeing how a pragmatic, reasonable person could disagree wit...

re: Why is talking about salary a taboo? - Beerinthepocket
I know what every person in my company makes at my level(within $2-3k) and I am friends with the people I work with. I have no resentment for those that make more than I do. Also, making 50% more than I do for the same job I do is impossible in my company. The pay is too structured. If there was ...

re: NYC: Scarpetta or Gramercy Tavern - Beerinthepocket
Gramercy Tavern was my favorite meal in NYC when I went in December for 4 nights. Ate at great restaurants all four nights, but GT takes the cake. Edit: the Arctic char I had there was the best fish I've ever had. Even beats the restaurants serving fresh fish in Hawaii that I've been to....
