Minimizing downside risk with bonds? - NewOrleansBlend on 9/13/16 at 2:45 pm
So I just got my first real job (MD) and 401K and have 4 months to maximize my yearly contribution. Unfortunately, I believe this a bad time to get into the market and expect a correction. I thought I was being smart by choosing a bond fund to start (Vanguard Intermediate term), assuming that th...

re: Are Callaway XR Irons good for game improvement? - NewOrleansBlend on 7/19/16 at 7:01 pm
I'm sure y'all play titleist or mizuno to feel cool and so everyone thinks you're a player right? Fact is mp's and non ap1 titleists are not bad clubs for low handicappers (<5), which is a very small minority. Here's the only numerical ranking I could find. Callaway #1 players irons (apex, a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Can't believe Burgesmith hasn't been mentioned yet. Great buns, great fries, good meat, excellent produce. The only downside I find is that the meat lets off a lot of juice while eating. Can't beat it with a burger and fries under $9...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (4)
re: Millionaire Maker: US Open... who y'all got? - NewOrleansBlend on 6/16/16 at 8:57 am
3/4 were non-traditional open layouts without the traditional rough: chambers, pinehurst, and pebble. He's also only had 1 top 10 Kuchar's size and length allow him to swing easy while maintaining his length. That flat, sweeping swing is not made for oakmont rough. ...

Kuchar's swing is not made for us open rough IMO. I would be very surprised if he did well. I would take the strongest guys this week: Day, DJ, Rory, Koepka Holmes, Hoffman...

re: Nice boots for going out- need help finding - NewOrleansBlend on 4/27/16 at 3:02 pm
Could also consider Gustin boots. Good leather, construction, and relatively cheap ($199). But you would have to wait for them to be made, not sure how long.

re: What is the conservative healthcare solution for the poor and indigent? - NewOrleansBlend on 2/20/16 at 10:04 am
People always talk about how republicans try to contain health care costs, but I can't think of any examples. Do they try to cut medicare payments? Do they insist on insurer efficiency? Hell they don't even try to ensure competition in the drug market by allowing Valient, etc to unfairly paten...

Link? I saw Schefter say "not counting on" but is there anything more definitive. I'm probably going to have to roll the dice on Rawls regardless.......Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Walgreens buys Rite Aid - NewOrleansBlend on 10/27/15 at 7:09 pm
It's going to be a war between cvs and Walgreens on who can price their drugsthe highest, maybe even with a pinch of collusion thrown in. Their cash prices for drugs are usually 4-5 x what Walmart and a lot of independents, which I consider outrageous. In a lot of ways praying on the poor and th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
