re: Why did Cuck McCain go to Syria last weekend? - GeneralLee
At least this time he met with some of the good guys, the Syrian Kurds in Kobani. On the flip side, he met with Turkey's dictator Erdogan who should not be trusted at all....

re: Anyone done a backdoor IRA? - GeneralLee
[quote] I'm wondering about this process as you've described, if you would be so kind as to elaborate on necessary steps or advice. Thanks. [/quote] There are multiple threads on here in the past about backdoor roth IRA's. The key is that you need to have a traditional IRA that has zero taxable...

re: Anyone done a backdoor IRA? - GeneralLee
[quote]We contributed in excess to the Roth IRA. I was made aware of a way to keep the excess in the Roth IRA by converting it to a traditional IRA and then back to Roth IRA? Confusing for a finance novice like myself...[/quote] Usually a backdoor roth IRA means that you make too much income to m...

re: President TRUMP is Plotting Strategy with his Generals - GeneralLee
[quote]This has been the case for 2 years or are you guys going to suddenly start paying attention to the facts on the ground (ISIS losing Iraqi territory on a slow but consistent basis for going on 18 months) and pretend this different now. Seriously, Mosul is the only major city in Iraq ISIS ha...

re: Starting a buisness (farming) and curious where to start - GeneralLee
Farming is a tough business to be in, if you do it it should be because you love it not because you expect it to generate large profits. Livestock, particularly feeder cattle, is probably a breakeven business at best most years because a large portion of the nation's herd is from mom and pop 50 c...

re: HSA as super retirement vehicle - GeneralLee
[quote]Okay, so this needs to be an explain to me like I'm 5 type of thing. I make about $120k a year right now and put 13% in my Roth. My HSA contribution is only about $45 a check, so about $1000 a year. Would it be a smart move to maybe take 3% and move it to the HSA? I think after $2000 in the H...

re: Roth for my Wife or 529 for kid - GeneralLee
[quote]Thats the plan on that end. But what about the Roth vs 529? [/quote] Don't have enough details on your background to opine further. The advantages of the 529 plan vary state by state. Here in Indiana we get 20% tax credit (up to $5K per year) plus no taxes on the withdrawals so it's a no...

HSA as super retirement vehicle - GeneralLee
[link=(http://www.madfientist.com/ultimate-retirement-account/)]LINK[/link] I already knew that a HSA was the best avenue for pre tax retirement dollars as you avoid FICA taxes, but didn't think about the ability to have non taxed distributions after retirement age for qualified medical expenses....

re: Trump call with Erdogan - GeneralLee
[quote]That doesn't even make sense. [/quote] Just look at the filth that Turkey is populating areas of Syria like Jarabulus that they have taken over. These people almost shot out our special forces that were embedded with them to help provide air strikes. Our guys had to high tail it out of th...

Trump call with Erdogan - GeneralLee
[link=(http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-turkey-idUSKBN15N02J)]LINK[/link] If this is true I vehemently disagree with Trump here. We shouldn't trust Erdogan at all, his minions are just ISIS lite. We should be going all in with the SDF, kick Turkey out of NATO, pull our nukes out of In...

re: Washington v. Trump, 17-35105, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - GeneralLee
Going to be some interesting gymnastics on the 9th circuit as they recently ruled the Feds have authority over the states when it came to immigration law (in the Arizona case a few years ago). If I'm Trump, I wait to appeal to SCOTUS until Gorsuch is on the bench, otherwise a 4-4 tie is a likely ...

re: I have $1,000. What should I buy that doesn't involve O&G - GeneralLee
[quote]LNGLF is at .66. Is it worth a buy? [/quote] No idea man. It's a total crap shoot. If you look at the long run chart, I think a spike to $2-3 may be quite possible. Some posters on here claiming it's a $20 stock are probably dreaming too much though. I do think the regulatory environmen...
