I've heard you want 1 years worth of salary in your 401k by the time your 30, two years of salary by 35 and then 3-4 years of salary by 40. From there you can have a good nest egg to plan out your next 20 years. I'm 5 years behind, but currently maxing out my 401k at 34. Savings is 6 months e...

re: How do we fight back? - The Goon
Think bigger. The media wants lots of conversation about a minimal subjects where the narrative can be formed and controlled. We need large amounts of cord cutting. Get rid of CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and national nightly news. They only incite division so you'll flock to your viewpoint for a sa...

re: Working in Youngstown, Oh - The Goon
My family is from there and everyone has fled the region, for multiple reasons. My father graduated from the university in town and my grandfather taught at Youngstown State. My parents hated the cold and fled to Florida and then LA. The town is rough. I'd use the same thought as NOLA: if it l...

re: California Single Payer Healthcare Plan Sails Through Initial Committee Test - The Goon

re: The 25 page unclassified intelligence report released, no evidence of Russian ha - The Goon
The point of mass media is to have lots of discussion about a very limited focus. Just weeks ago we were discussing each individual email from the podesta leaks. Now, we are discussing broad topics as if the info is legitimate. We have let the discussion move away and we are at the brink of reduc...

re: If I were to join military, which branch do you recommend - The Goon
The navy has a nuclear engineering program that is money. They will train you, put you to work getting valuable experience, and then pay you to stay on. If you're single and looking for experience and direction, this would be my choice. I have a distant relative that did this with an environm...

I know Amazon has world class logistics and is even pioneering self updating algorithms, but what is the risk envolved with having a fleet of planes? Planes are crazy expensive, have red tape out the mother fricking arse for maintenance, and require special mechanics with constant trainings and educa...
