re: Just curious, how much do y'all claim for Charitable Donations? - kjacksonp
Average about 15% for last few years. That may sound high, but kids are all out of the house, we don't need what we make, and the charities we give to are vetted for efficient use of the funds for causes we believe are important: Church anti-trafficking charities underprivileged youth/families...

re: Non-compete agreements - kjacksonp
In some states (Alabama) they cannot be enforced against people who are considered "professionals"--JD, MD, ?CPA (not sure), perhaps other areas this would cover. Have seen contracts where it is written in even though not enforceable assuming that the employee won't know that and will comply even...

re: First Time Car Buyer(Financing): Anyone Care to Offer Advise? - kjacksonp
Give them as little information as possible about your circumstances until you have an agreed upon price; and have as much information as possible about their cost vs. what they are asking for the vehicle prior to going to look (there are sites to help with that.) Be prepared to make and offer that...

re: Outsiders Take On Coach O - kjacksonp
If LSU keeps it close into the 4th qtr against Bama, beats Arky soundly and beats UF, Coach O is named head coach before TAM game. A word from someone who knows a lot more about the workings than I do. If not, then all of the speculation about other coaches stays in play....

re: How screwed am I by not putting down 20% on a home purchase? - kjacksonp
baldona makes good points re: renting vs. buying. That said, if you are going to buy and hold only for a short period, ARMs may be better than fixed rate (lower initial interest for first several years depending on the ARM). Another expense of owning is maintenance is yours. The a/c breaks y...

re: Can you sell calls to establish a short position? - kjacksonp
What about selling the call at or just out of the money and buying a call for a later expiration that is farther out of the money? Limits risk (makes it not a naked call) and the loss of value of the later expiration call is at a slower rate. Net gain if market is flat is profit from sold call le...

re: Great game TN - kjacksonp
Walked a L handed batter to get to a R handed batter? Right handed pitcher throwing heat. Made all bases a forceout, especially home in case of a play where a double play was not possible. Only real risk besides a hit (Fraley was on a hitting streak, so he was as big of a threat as Kramer?) was a...

re: Buying Silver? - kjacksonp
If you are going to buy from anyone other than a dealer like APMEX, MONEX, Provident Metals (my favorite), etc., get a magnet for testing authenticity. It is not fool proof but many scam attempts with silver dollars are made from metals that magnets attract. The only items I consider on Ebay o...
