re: Why did all the dems vote against the tax cut? - GaryMyMan
It added $1.5 Trillion to the deficit. We’re hitting the debt ceiling a month ahead of schedule. It gives the biggest cuts to billionaires. [quote]The federal government is on track to borrow nearly $1 trillion this fiscal year — Trump's first full year in charge of the budget. That's almost ...

re: Resignation is Official - New Agreement is Executed, but wait... - Update in OP and Page 5 - GaryMyMan
Alright, I gotta ask: what damn industry is this and what (general) role do you play? Usually it’s pretty easy to deduce in these threads. Oilfield sales is my best guess. ...

re: Primerica..anyone ever do it? - GaryMyMan
I just signed a petition to sue a guy for an unpaid debt who listed Primerica as his employer. He attached a 1099 to the loan app - dude made $122k from them last year. :lol: ...

re: Mortgage rates - GaryMyMan
[quote]3.9 to 4.25ish is what I'm getting from Jan 1 to now.... That's a big increase. [/quote] Here's the terrible thing about a 4.25% rate: Rates will likely never get cheap enough down the line to refinance (generally you'd like to get 1% lower to make a refi worthwhile). It's in this no-man'...

re: Did you know your local legislators give away full ride scholarships to Tulane? - GaryMyMan
[quote]I wonder how many of those 144 scholarships end up being given to the kid of a friend, relative or close business associate...or involve some sort of kickback. O/U 140 [/quote] Well the kid still has to get into Tulane on their own. Which isn't exactly a walk in the park. ...

re: OT ballers, how long did it take for you to hit $100k+/yr? - GaryMyMan
[quote]As several people on here already know, when I was in high school in the early 2000's I created a pretty popular website that hosted hundreds of flash games and made well over 100k my sophomore year. I sold the site in 2008 and now I make over a million per year mostly just renting out proper...

re: Bitcoin is sinking like a rock - GaryMyMan
[quote]I laugh my arse off when people say this. What do you think makes the US Dollar any more real? [/quote] Well for one thing, currency genius, the US Dollar doesn’t fluctuate like some tech stock back in the 90’s. It’s not currency. It’s an investment fad. It’s down 46% in 24 days. More than ...

re: Resignation is Official - New Agreement is Executed, but wait... - Update in OP and Page 5 - GaryMyMan
You gotta go. Getting a F500 on your resume is the golden ticket. Once you’re in that club it’s a lot easier to move around. Also: you’re here to make money; the only way to do that in a small company is with equity. Doesn’t seem like they’re keen on doing that any time soon. ...

re: Sterling Construction out of Houston. I think they’re getting the Wall. - GaryMyMan
Setting aside the fact that "The Wall" will never be built... You think this administration is dumb enough to just choose a firm rather than bidding it out? Oh shit, yeah you're right, probably just gonna pick some donor who says he has a construction company. Like the wireline company...

re: Porsche 911...douche or classic? - GaryMyMan
[quote] it would be hard not to spring for a Ferrari at that price.[/quote] What I love about a 911 is that it isn't a Ferrari. You won't get bothered every time you get gas, you won't have people taking pictures when you're driving down the highway, you won't necessarily look out of place anywhere...

[quote]How you like your Cayenne baw? [/quote] Mine is a 2011 with 82,000 miles now. When I bought it had around 50k. It is without question the best vehicle I've ever bought - I have no idea why the resale is so bad on these, other than unfounded paranoia on maintenance. The only issue I've had ...

re: Mercedes AMG Driving Academy (or other performance driving schools) - GaryMyMan
I am by no means an OT Baller, but I drive a Cayenne because it's the most fun car that I can fit toddlers in. Anyway, I got an oil change at the Porsche dealer and a couple weeks later they invited me (and everyone else who got the email blast - first few to respond got the spots) to the Porsche Dr...

re: Let’s face it, the Range Rover is the only true OT baller suv - GaryMyMan
It's easy to hate on Range Rovers, but they sure are pretty. And they have a tailgate! The resale value of the new body style is exponentially better than the last one - I think they've fixed some reliability issues. However, if I'm spending ~$120k I'm buying: 1) 2019 Porsche Cayenne Turbo ...
