re: Tax Diversification in Retirement Holdings - PlanoPrivateer
First, thank you for your service. I will echo what others have said about you being off to a great start for someone your age. Also, others have mentioned that no one knows what future tax rates will be or that Roth IRAs withdrawals will continue to be tax free. But, you have to play by the ru...

re: Roth IRA questions - PlanoPrivateer
Contact the company you have your Roth with and explain your situation. If it were me I’d go ahead and fund the Roth this year. If you are outside the limits then I think the IRS will let you re-characterize this year’s contribution....

re: Black Florida teen fights back after SAT cheating accusation, Lawyer threatens to sue - PlanoPrivateer
I hope she achieved the higher score in the right way. But, I have a question about getting a lawyer that threatens a civil rights violation. Serious question because I don't know - does the SAT know the race of the students taking the test? Is that part of the information they get on each test t...

re: name from the past...Art Cantrelle - PlanoPrivateer
Probably not tougher than Art but I’ll throw out the name of another old timer. Robert Ryder was an offensive lineman and captain in the late 60’s. I met him in the 80’s. He was in the banking business and we had some mutual friends. Very nice guy that probably never would start any trouble but ...

"The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need" by Andrew Tobias. I read an early version back around 1980. I gave each of my children the latest edition available a few years ago.
