re: Is it bad to solely invest in Betterment after maximizing 401(K) contribution? - Beerinthepocket
I don't think going that route is bad. It's much cheaper than having wealth management folks charging you 1% a year. I use Charles Schwab's "Intelligent Portfolios" and it's worked well and taken the headache out of having to research stocks to purchase in a brokerage account. Schwab doesn't...

re: Rumors About HRC's FBI Interview - Beerinthepocket
I'm sure they work together on a high profile case like this to ensure all the important questions are asked. There is nothing wrong or "smelly" with the AG/DOJ working with the FBI, they are all in the same department....

re: Sounding like FBI dropped the ball - Beerinthepocket
The constitution applies to every single person in this country so the FBI can't do anything just based on things an individual says since speech is protected by the first amendment. Do you want to sacrifice the first amendment so that anyone who speaks out in favor of the taliban, ISIL, et al c...

re: Shooter was on "watch list" again - Beerinthepocket
Under the US Constitution if someone has only utilized their 1st amendment right to free speech in favor of terrorism all the government can do is put them on a watchlist. Anything else requires a material act in furtherance of a terrorist act. ...

re: Say it.... It's Ultimately Obama's Fault, This Act of Terror in Orlando - Beerinthepocket
This is dumb, why is terrorism the only crime people expect the government to be able to stop 100% of the time? People don't expect that for human trafficking, meth dealing, drive-by shootings, kidnappings, murder, but terrorism? Yep. Makes no sense....

re: Tesla Model S, now starting at $56,000 after incentives - Beerinthepocket
The warranty on the drive unit and battery is 8 years, unlimited miles. You wouldn't need to worry about being out of warranty for a while. Also the model S has been out for years, so they aren't rushing this out....

The recipient of a gift never pays income tax on it, the exclusion prevents the gifter from having to pay gift tax. The gifter does not get a tax deduction for giving a gift....

re: FBI wants access to Internet browser history without a warrant - Beerinthepocket
Y'all need to simmer down, the bureau would still need to have probable cause and approval of the AG and the Director. All this does is make disclosure of secret and top secret information to judges without secret or top secret clearances not necessary, and makes it so that the classified informa...

re: Trump: I'm willing to meet with Kim Jung Un; dismantle Dodd-Frank - Beerinthepocket
Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley were both knee jerk regulations and need to be repealed. I'd hope whoever the next president is gets rid of them. I wrote a paper for a finance law class in grad school on Dodd-Frank and it was ridiculous how many unintended consequences just about every line item i...

re: Moving to NYC - Beerinthepocket
Yes, I'm aware of the cost of a studio condo. The ones that appear livable in downtown or Chelsea run between $450k and $500k. Rent looks like it would be $2400 a month for a livable studio. Mortgage, property tax, maint. Fees, looks like it would run $2600. If I got a roommate in a 2 bedroom I coul...
