Re: Treasury Direct account security discussion at Bogleheads

What makes you think that Fidelity and Vanguard are somehow safer than the U.S. Treasury? If this question is directed at me I thought I gave the reason in my post. I have no idea which of those three are the most or least hackable. I just believe that if I was hacked I would rather deal with Fidel...

Re: Countering medical cost myths

I figured this out a long time ago. Nowadays I only go the Urgent Care clinic when I am truly in need, like almost exactly two years ago when I had shingles. And they have very good doctors at the urgent care clinic I visit. Unlike other doctors they don't even schedule a follow up visit just so the...

Re: thought i would share some of our macro photography shots

Those photos are truly awesome. Glad to see you have a real talent to explore in your retirement years and that you are obviously enjoying it. Haven't found one myself yet but maybe I haven't looked hard enough. I was an excellent computer programmer when I retired a few years ago but so far the onl...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

Not sure if anyone’s noticed, but the flow of information on the internet has changed a bit since Drudge was a “major influence” TWENTY YEARS AGO. I may travel in too small of circles but almost everyone I talk to about politics who identifies as a conservative or right leaning libertarian still sa...

Re: Treasury Direct account security discussion at Bogleheads

I used to buy the maximum amount of allowable I-bonds at Treasury Direct for both me and my wife but I quit doing it and even cashed them all out a few years ago. Although they did seem to have good security when it came to authenticating the website seemed very unsophisticated. Eventually I decided...

Re: Joe Biden fans?

I watched most of the Thomas hearings and learned all about the pubic hairs comment which Anita Hill said he made to her in the break room at work. And though it wasn't clearly established, some evidence was introduced that he may have rented pornographic movies at an adult book store (which I don't...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I like Donald Trump because he has balls but I'm not yet convinced that he has big enough cojones to stand up to the generals and the military industrial complex and do what he campaigned on because he secretly knows his balls are inferior to theirs. Tulsi is an Iraq war vet and medic who has seen b...

Re: Joe Biden fans?

He's a likable fellow as many people seem to agree and this might very well win him the presidency but if you look at his record you can see that he has a very strained relationship with the truth. If you aren't old enough to remember the first time he ran for president he had to drop out because of...

Re: Unit 29155

A Russian military intelligence unit has had the decades-long goal of destabilizing Europe. But that's ok, let's like make friends with Putin. :P https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_29155 based on https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/08/world/europe/unit-29155-russia-gru.html I wonder what the decades lo...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I don't know what will be on the news tonight with all the networks except Fox but I really don't need to watch to make a prediction. The main topic of conversation will be the godawful thing that Donald Trump did or said that day which will be the most outrageous thing that any American president ...
