re: Getting large lump sum invested - BornKjun
Odds are that lump sum investing is better. Anyone who says different does not know the facts on this topic. That does not mean it’s always better or even definitely better. One suggestion is to do a hybrid: 70% now, 20% later, 10% even later.. Or.. 100% in conservative holdings and...

re: Clever Republican strategy in PA - BornKjun
I’ve been impressed by the RNC recently. It’s almost like they hire for competence and promote on merit. Amazing how that usually works better than seniority and pursuing “diversity”....

re: Theoretical Topic: Discreet voting - BornKjun
[quote]It’s worth a shot. Not like 99.9% of people even consider voting records when choosing a candidate. It could eliminate lobby influence to a degree.[/quote] Really, the main thing I'm thinking is that "activists" would lose a little bit of influence/power. I don't like political activist...

[quote]However, the lobbyists wouldn't know how they voted either, and that might be a good thing[/quote] This is one of the things I thought about. Other things: No more bills would be written for the sole purpose of political grandstanding. Would some of the politically difficult...

re: Theoretical Topic: Discreet voting - BornKjun
[quote]0 Accountability[/quote] Not totally true. A primary challenger can make a unpopular bill passed by the Senate a major campaign issue. It would be on the incumbent to defend themselves with circumstantial evidence that they don't agree the unpopular bill and vow to try to overtur...

Theoretical Topic: Discreet voting - BornKjun
What if the Senate had discreet voting? No one would know for sure how any of the Senators actually voted. Would more Senators vote as individuals and less as partisans? Would this be a good thing? [img]https://media.makeameme.org/created/ill-give-you-rxc3dm.jpg[/img] Note: I don't...

re: The debate about universal life insurance - BornKjun
Also note: don’t buy into the fear tactics saying investing is risky. The spread of returns of the stock market over 30 years is actually very tight. The returns of the market for 1 year is pretty wide, but every 30 year period has been pretty similar. ...

re: The debate about universal life insurance - BornKjun
Retirement is before you die.. Realize that you either get your cash value or your death benefit- not both. So if you die with the policy intact, you get the death benefit and forfeit the cash value. A 40 year old person wanting a 30 year term policy would need to achieve a after tax return of...

re: Could you guys live with a 1.5% weekly gain in the market? - BornKjun
I'll ignore that you can't do math (200%+??), and ask the following.. How long have you been doing this? What percentage of trades are profitable? What's the average gain? What's the average loss? What's the volatility of the returns? What's the average return on days the S&P is up? Wha...
