Re: The SECURE Act's Big Money Grab

Actually, I started this thread because everything I read made it sound like the Secure Act was certain to pass the Senate and be signed into law imminently, but I just saw this: https://www.planadviser.com/exclusives/secure-act-ensnared-senate-flying-house/ and also, I saw that Bogleheads has close...

Soooooo mad at Vanguard!!

We have our investments at Vanguard, and I've been reasonably happy with them (not outrageously thrilled, but reasonably happy) for many years until this past Friday. Background: I've been getting emails from Vanguard about some vote they're having (I totally don't know what it's about and don't car...

Stocks for sell time horizon in May? (High school Economics project)

Hey, guys, I think I actually posted a question like this years ago when my older son was at a school that did this exercise, but now my younger son is doing it (in the same type of school) and I'm interested to hear y'all's take. Okay, so here's the exercise, and it is NOT PP friendly (not my fault...

Re: Captured Pilot Burned Alive by ISIS

I'm not sure what they would have to say about a journalist from a country (Japan) that only gives logistical support to the Allies' effort in the mideast. Maybe beheading is the default punishment when they can't think up something more poetic. Thank you so much for bringing this up, Dualstow.  Th...

Re: What device do you use on this forum?

I know Apple thinks that internet connections are ubiquitous, and maybe they are in Silicon Valley, but try telling that to Newark airport and Amtrak.  Or to hotels that insist on charging $15/day. Amen, sistah! Hotels charging for wifi make me crazy. Might as well charge me for sheets on the bed o...

Re: It's all about China

Wow, guys! Thank you all so much for your kind words! Dualstow - Yes, I think each and every one of us could wake up every morning grateful to not be an animal in China...particularly any animal through which or with which one could make money. For example, the big animal-linked expat outrage while ...

It's all about China

Hi, guys! So... in another thread, Sophie and Reub both were asking about my time in China (by the way, I live in Japan now). Reub said: "Yes please share your insights on China with us. Did you live in a big city and for how long? Is there any pure capitalism going on there? Is the economy totally ...
