RC- as it stands right now you can pass your stocks, bonds, and cash to your children tax free on a step-up basis. The Democratic Party wants to stop that, what they call wealth step-up. The party believe your money belongs to them. 😜

LCT, Just started a ROTH IRA inside my TSP. Putting in 200 dollars a paycheck. 100% C fund designation for my ROTH. Set it, and forget it. Have about 100k in ROTH money between spouse and I over at Vanguard. Once kids are out of college, I will FULLY maximize contributions for spouse and I.

At 70 1/2 years old you have to start taking RMD. Bill in Congress now might move that up to 72 or 75. Would be nice if it was all converted to ROTH by that time. 😀😎💰

RC- I talked before how I don’t have any ROTH money and wish I did. When you retire and in a lower income bracket start moving money into a ROTH. If you stay in that 12% tax bracket if makes it worth it. Right now that bracket goes to 77K, plus your $24k married deduction. No doubt about it taxes will be going up in the future, to pay for our massive debt.
    On second thought you might be in that 100 K bracket when you retire. Nice problem to have.

LCT, L income is good place to be for retirement years. Should keep you above inflation rate, while minimizing your losses from a brutal bear market. A perfect RIKSNY play.

I talk to new and older employees all the time about the ROTH IRA.

Here's the best way to fund a TSP for most employees;

1) Take advantage of full matching funds by contributing 5% of your salary to ordinary, before tax IRA (contribution comes from gross income)

2) Fully maximize contribution to ROTH IRA (which I believe is six thousand under present tax law) contribution comes from net income, and tax free when withdrawal occurs.

3) Go back to regular IRA with any additional funds you want to contribute.

C fund up 18.19%
L INC- up 4.68%, nice Alternative to G fund ( up 1.59%) with only 20% equities. Did see that’s moving up too 30% equities.
 Reading yesterday average TSP balance $154k with $21k in ROTH. Like to see it broken down to 10 year employees, 20 year, and 30 years.
  Target ended up $17 a share higher, or 20%.
    I woke up yesterday and Target up $6, went to up $12. I woke the wife up and said Honey, Target up $12. She just smiled and said your Asperger’s will be working overtime today. Boy, was she on the money as I was into my numbers all morning.
   We might of had $2-3k in Target stock 35 years ago when the wife worked at Target, when it was a local company. Think that stock went for braces on one of the kids and living expenses. O well, live too fight another day. 😂💰

I'll top that Sybil. Trump just missed the creation of airports by a couple of centuries when he claimed the Continental Army took over the airports in 1775. Tiny was also off only 37 mere years when he claimed the National Anthem was written during the Revolutionary War. Trump further made a fool of himself when he thought Frederick Douglass was still alive. Also, Tiny made the ludicrous claim that windmills cause cancer. How do you feel about those gaffes Sybil?

HARIS ALIC 21 Aug 2019

Joe Biden continued his string of public gaffes while campaigning in Iowa Tuesday, inaccurately claiming that Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. were assassinated in the 1970s.
The former vice president, who has worried even his staunchest allies in recent weeks for often confusing times and places, made the slip-up during a campaign appearance in Urbandale, Iowa.

“Just like in my generation, when I got out of school, when Bobby Kennedy and Dr. King had been assassinated in the ’70s — the late ’70s — I got engaged,” Biden told the audience, before proceeding to ramble about the counter-culture movement of the 1960s.

“Up to that time, remember, none of you women will remember this, but a couple men will remember it,” he said. “That was the time in the early to late ’60s, in the early ’60s, the ’60s, where it was, ‘Drop out, go to Haight-Ashbury, don’t get engaged, don’t trust anyone over 30.'”

RC- I got 200 shares of JPM and very happy with it. Think JPM buying back stock about at the same rate as BAC. I have 3.6% yield and Jamie Dimon as CEO. Jamie said we should do ROE of 14% with no problem going forward, was 16% last quarter. Great long term play.

RC / Yes I heard that. Banks are so cheap now, could get cheaper with rates going down. Might be a good 5% play with 3% dividend. Good news from Fidelity:

        The ranks of 401(k) and IRA millionaires again hit a record high in the second quarter at Fidelity Investmentsafter stocks fully recovered from their losses suffered at the end of 2018. Only in America!

The number of investors with at least $1 million in their 401(k) accounts rose to 196,000 at the end of the second quarter, up from 180,000 the previous quarter and surpassing the previous record of 187,400reached in the third quarter of 2018, according to Fidelity.

 Target said $6.20 EPS for 2019. If we give that a 17 multiple we at $105. Walmart sells for 20x, if we give TGT a 20 P/E that’s $120 a share. I picked up Target at 12x and had 4% yield. It was No brainer.

Energy star says you should turn your thermostat up to 82 degrees while sleeping during the hot months of summer. I'm sure if Bernie or Warren were POTUS, this kind of big brother nonsense would be mandatory for each and every household in America.

/m60380 Funny, never heard you mention any travel plans in your past or future. You seem tied down to that housing unit. I have lots on my bucket list, and heavy travel plans, once my college payments are through in 18 months. Even with that obstacle, we still managed to go to Disney in January and Virginia beach in May. Imagine the possibilities in 2021 and beyond. My wife tells me she wants to go to Hawaii to celebrate kids college graduation. I'm there! I have lots more on my list after that. Creating memories is what it's all about.

Spain
Italy
Greece
Florida keys
Rome
Ireland
Australia
And much more on list. Cross them off one at a time, and start a new list. Lots to do, lots to see.

What a stupid snowflake you is! Everyone but people like your leader pay taxes.

And you've already said you'll never retire, you'll just grab your annuity and continue with your second job. But I figure you'll need yet another job after PO because you can't control your spending.

So sad to never stop working. I planned to do so for 35 years and got there. Took discipline. You've given up. Very sad.

Keep engaged with said volunteer work and family---and I don't gotta wring every dollar out of life to be happy. Horror! Too bad you have the need to get all the shiny dimes.

Staying active physically, mentally, and spiritually is key. If you dont stay on top of your game by at least working part time, and staying engaged, you end up in a federal subsidized housing unit which guys like me have to support. I dont enjoy such decline.

My place is a federally-funded senior facility. NH puts nothing in.

Neither do I. I donate my time and sweat to Meals on Wheels, something you'll never do. In the past I volunteered for American Red Cross, went to NOLA in 2005 after Katrina. But now I prefer to stay close to home.

So stick with your loser GOTP. It's all you deserve.

Except for the generosity and benevolence of New England's native Americans like the Mohawks and Wampatucks, there would be no America today. The Pilgrims would never have survived the first few years without their unselfish help.

Just like you wouldn't invite the towns rif-raf into your house, a country must have a legitimate process to bring in immigrants. Germany failed this simple process, and paid a heavy price. I say, not on my watch! Thank God Mexico got the message from Trump, and doing a much better job at protecting their side of the border. Finally, we got some sanity!

          Europe has a 70% chance of plunging into recession, according to renowned economist and bond market expert Mohamed El-Erian, with Britain, Italy and Germany “paralyzed” by domestic issues that have stalled the economies of the EU’s most powerful nations.

In an exclusive interview with Financial News, the chief economic adviser to Allianz, the German insurer, warned Europe is “quickly losing momentum”, leaving the trading bloc “teetering on the edge of a significant slump”.

Former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid had some harsh words for his party's presidential candidates, rejecting some of their health care and immigration policies as too extreme to resonate with voters in a general election.

Reid, during a newly published interview with Vice, specifically took aim at "Medicare-for-all" and calls by many candidates to decriminalize illegal border crossings. The blunt-talking former Nevada senator suggested any Democratic nominee running on these issues could face trouble.

“People want a fair immigration system. They don’t want an open-door invitation for everybody to come at once,” Reid said in the interview with Vice. When asked if supporting decriminalization could be bad for Democrats in 2020, Reid said, “Of course it is.”

Reid accused Democrats of not having their priorities in order going into the election.

         Investors should look to dividend stocks, Goldman says
Aug. 19, 2019
With interest rates falling, Goldman Sachs advises clients to look for high-dividend stocks, which are trading at their cheapest levels in almost 40 years relative to stocks with low yields, wrote Goldman's chief U.S. equity strategist, David Kostin in a note.

“With the 10-year Treasury yield at just 1.5% and the Fed likely to cut two more times this year, investors should look for opportunities in dividend stocks,” he wrote.

S&P 500 dividends have increased by 9% in H1 this year; Goldman sees S&P 500 annualized dividend growth of 3.5% during the next 10 years.

HANNAH BLEAU 19 Aug 2019

President Trump leads top Democrat candidates in a hypothetical general election match up, according to a Zogby Analytics/24/7 Wall St. poll released Monday.
The poll, which surveyed 897 likely U.S. voters August 9– 12, shows Trump narrowly topping all of his leading Democrat challengers.

Respondents were asked, “If the 2020 presidential election were held today and the candidates were Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, whom would you vote for?”

Of the 897 respondents, 46 percent chose Trump, 45 percent chose Biden, and nine percent said they were unsure. While Biden fares better with millennial voters– 50 percent to Trump’s 38 percent – Trump does better with voters 65 and older, 56 percent to 40 percent. Trump also leads Biden among independent voters, 44 percent to Biden’s 36 percent.

Larry Kudlow: He’s Trump’s top economic adviser, and as such he’s arguing that the economy is doing fine.

There’s a problem with having Kudlow as your main spokesman, notes The Fix’s Aaron Blake. Kudlow actually has a record of predicting something only to see the opposite happen, such as when he predicted in 2007 there wouldn’t be a recession before the Great Recession hit in 2008.

Senior White House officials are examining whether to propose a temporary cut to payroll taxes in an effort to stimulate the economy and stem growing fears of a U.S. recession. The discussions are in the early stage, but they reveal growing concerns about the economy by President Trump's top aides.

Investopedia-
            Near the end of Reagan’s second term, tax revenues received by the US government increased to $909 billion in 1988 from $517 billion in 1980. Inflation was reduced to 4%, and the unemployment rate fell below 6%. Although economists and politicians continue to argue over the effects of Reaganomics, it ushered in one of the longest and strongest periods of prosperity in American history. Between 1982 and 2000, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) grew nearly 14-fold, and the economy added 40 million new jobs. End of story.

Moses - Forbes :

           There is no conclusive evidence suggesting the president’s party has any statistically significant impact on U.S. equity market returns. . Intuitively this makes sense, because stock returns are influenced by a myriad of factors such as valuations, corporate profits, business cycles, monetary policy, etc. In addition, the increasingly global economy (the S&P 500 generates more than 50% of revenues outside the U.S.) makes the actions of a single government less important.


The stock market is a complex adaptive system in which cause and effect are not easy to link. Market movements, particularly over short periods such as a presidential term (yes, four years is a short-term investment period), are random.

For years, maximizing shareholder profits has been the primary goal of many corporations. That should change, a group of CEOs says.

In a big shift for corporate America, the Business Roundtable said it is updating its decades-old endorsement of the theory that shareholders’ interests should come above all else. Now, the Roundtable, which represents the CEOs of many of the largest companies in the United States, says corporations must balance profits with the needs of employees, customers and other stakeholders. It remains to be seen how much the companies change their practices in light of the new commitments.

Wow! Looks like we get back 100% of the losses we experienced in last Wednesday trading (worst day of the year) Third day in a row of green on my screen after Wednesday's debacle. World wide stimulus through monetary action looks to give equities a big boost.

Selling real estate is the Domain of ex-convicts, just as is selling Used Cars. Only job around (besides French Foreign Legion) that does not require any Background Check. I can see why you liked it. Only the smart thing to do.

   Thank MMMoses. The po was a 29 year detour that I should not have taken. It drove me crazy. It is the worst run organization I can imagine. People are paid quite well. Good retirement if you are smart enough to handle finances.
   I had a real estate license about45 years ago. I was too immature and was not devoted to it. I then went to work at PO. It did help pay bills. I was and am married. We raised a great kid. I invested money. I did well. In the back of my mind was, what if I did things differently in real estate? I then got my license and worked very hard and did very well. I quit the PO and did even better at real estate.I really do not care if you believe me or not. I got back in real estate to prove something to myself.
   I liked most of the people at the PO but the organization is terrible. Most people there work hard but it is a business model that is 50 years old. How many billions are they losing this year? GOOD LUCK

Well I simply don't believe you Nightmare. If you were making three times a postal wage at real estate you would not have worked for USPS. Would have been a moron to do it. What you did make in Real Estate I imagine was made snapping up what some poor bastard was losing to foreclosure with your wife's money. A friggin vulture.
I do not think that my "destiny" has much to do with USPS, Real Estate, the Market, or anything you would understand or value. As to my age. You are older than me by a shot. You will be feeding the worms while I am still kicking. Never had a donkey. Quarter Horses. A shame you were never anything but a rider of the merry go round. Probably for the best though.

Au Contraire, Mr. Nightmare. For one thing, Scientologists DO BELIEVE they can create their own Destiny, 100%. They say "It's all in the Mind"...and if you've ever thumbed-through a copy of Dianetics by L. Ron Hubbard, you would know that. No, I'm not a Scientologist, but I've also read the Bhagavad Gita, and I'm no Hindu, either. Just Curious.

   Mighty Moron Moses, I made three times as much selling real estate as working at the post office. There is life outside the post office. You act as if you are a member of Scientology or some other wack organization and have no control over your destiny. You seem to think the PO is the answer to everything. It may be for you but not me and most free thinking people. Have a great delusion the rest of your life if that is what it takes to feel good.

Moses his wife are grocery shopping.

Moses sees a case of beer on one of the shelves and puts it in the cart.

“What are you doing?” asks his wife.

“They’re on sale, only $10 for 24 cans.” the dimwitted Moses responds.

“Well, put it back. We can’t afford those.”

Without another word, Moses obeys his wife and puts the case back on the shelf. In the next aisle over, the wife sees a bottle of facial cream and puts it in the cart.

“What are you doing?” Moses asks.

“It’s my face cream and it’s on sale for $20. It makes me look beautiful.” she replies.

“So does a 24 pack of beer, and it’s half the price the quick but still dim witted Moses responds!”

Pelosi and the Pope

The Pope and Nancy Pelosi are on the same stage in front of a huge crowd.

The Pope leans towards Mrs. Pelosi and says, "Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, like that of your followers, but go deep into their hearts and they'll forever speak of this day and rejoice!"

Pelosi replied, "I seriously doubt that. With one little wave of your hand? Show me."

So the Pope slapped her.

Lamenting San Francisco rates as the "the doo-doo capital of the U.S," and California now has the "majority of the nation's homeless people," Claremont professor and author Charles Kesler writes there is a "defecation crisis" in California's biggest cities.

"Without wishing to return to the Elizabethan Poor Laws, we ought to consider what was lost when the courts discouraged Americans from thinking of 'homelessness' in light of the old laws against vagrancy," Kesler wrote for The Wall Street Journal.

"Under that understanding, no one had a right to camp out indefinitely on public property, much less to defecate on it. Public property belonged to the public — to everyone — and couldn't be privatized for the benefit of one or more vagrants, however poor or sick. Though that principle would need to be applied to modern circumstances, it is the indispensable starting point for thinking about the shocking problems of the Golden State."

The sub-headline of his Journal opinion piece remarked California lawmakers are banning plastic straws to reduce waste, but "a far worse kind of waste covers the streets of San Francisco and L.A."

"The majority of the nation's homeless people now live in California," Kesler wrote.

This month, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across five food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on “humanitarian grounds.” More than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records and a federal criminal investigation is expected to result in convictions of the employers at the plants. The raids have already resulted in job fairs at some of the plants seeking to hire locals.

     Before anyone gets their panties in a wad, I add that my ancestors came here from other countries and they learned the language and worked and never once did I hear any of them trash America. They became citizens, were proud to be one and some served in the military! I am nice to everyone and I have no problem with anyone coming here and making a good life for themselves. BUT if you are coming here and expect us to become what you just came from, then that’s not happening!
Return and work on your country and make it better where you can be proud to live in it.

From your link and what the goobers here love to ignore, especially those who claim to be LEO’s -

On May 29, 2019, In a press conference, Muller stated that "If we had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said that. We did not, however, make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime... A president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. That is unconstitutional. Even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view – that too is prohibited."

Funny, when all you lefties voted for St. Barry or HRC, I think the worse we said were that you were uninformed voters or maybe even idiots. Don't recall wishing you were all conquered and raped. I think this fall in with the recent lefty violence against police officers, shooting up ICE offices and Antifa running wild.

Major concession #2 by Trump according to Reuters;

After unexpectedly conceding to China last week, when Trump announced he would delay imposing the bulk of the 10% tariffs on $300BN in mostly consumer-focused goods from September 1 until mid-December, a move that surprised analysts as it was not based on any concessions from Beijing but was merely a panicked response to the tumbling stock market, late on Friday Trump made another unexpected concession when the Commerce Department announced it would extend a reprieve given to Huawei permitting the Chinese firm to buy supplies from U.S. companies so that it can service existing customers.

Back in May, after the US Commerce Dept blacklisted Huawei, it allowed the Chinese telecom giant to purchase some American-made goods in a move aimed at minimizing disruption for its customers, many of which operate networks in rural America.

The “temporary general license” will be extended for Huawei for 90 days, according to Reuters, and will renew an agreement set to lapse on August 19, continuing the Chinese company’s ability to maintain existing telecommunications networks and provide software updates to Huawei handsets.

LCT, that was not a dig. As I said my buddy got on through one of the programs geared towards acknowledging the fact that there are those who do not fit into the standardized test box who can nonetheless be productive employees. Many employers would have passed him by out of hand. The exam would have beat him. The exams we took were pretty much jokes anyway as far as a tool for picking good employees. The real test takes ten years or so of actual employment and is largely a test on attitude not aptitude. They bet right on my buddy and he is a successful employee by any measure. He knows and I know that we were fortunate to work for USPS. You were fortunate too. There are many people who were not given the leg up that USPS gave us. We ought not judge them lazy.

A good carpenter is required to know so much more than any postal worker that you would think they would he better compensated. They are not as a general rule.

/m60068 Taking and passing a civil service test took action on the individuals part. Following up on the process if/when you get called also took action on the individuals part. Working 20-45 years as a civil servant also took action on the individuals part. Sadly, when action is required, many lazy ass individuals head for the hills.

Success= action, hard work, and perseverance. A lifetime of discipline.

Failure= undisciplined behavior, blaming others, and taking no accountability of your lazy ass ways.

It was the great football coach Jimmy Johnson who once said; "you show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser".

Amen Jimmy.

Take a good look at that loser in the mirror (if you are one) and give him a good tongue lashing. Maybe that's the time that individual will finally spring forward, and take action. Success comes from within.

That was my reference to a single family home. My parents had seven mouths to feed and investments and 1929 was still only 30 years prior. They lived thru the depression caused by the roaring 20's and speculation. By 1929 October 24th they were jumping out of buildings. Look at yesterday and that guy on TV calling General Electric a fraud and causing a 11% stock drop. If there is no substance to his claim then legal proceedings should commence and if there is GE's BOD and CEO's/CFO past and present should be held to account. Market fraud or manipulation is serious.

/m60038 Fair enough. What happens if someone invested a 1000 dollars in that same fund in 1959? A GREAT example of the power of compounding your money over time. No looking. No headline watching. Take your emotions out of it. Just a simple bet on the future of America.

  Check out Vanguard Managed Payout. Will pay you monthly income for 3 years and every three years will be adjusted up or down on your balance every 3 years. Let’s say you have $300k and Vanguard uses a 4% withdrawal rate, or $1k a month.

The 1.5% yield on 10 year really hurts if your retired with a 50/50 portfolio.
 Let’s say you make 8% on the market, and 1.5% on your bonds, you have 4.75% portfolio going forward.
 I think dividend stocks might be the way too go, and you might have to go 60% equities.

    About 12-15 years ago I had ATT and the dividends paid my phone bill( $19)
    I had NSP power company and the dividend paid my Electrical and heat bill. Had a LP that paid my gas bill- O the good old days,

Vanguard star

Vanguard prime cap core

Vanguard dividend growth

Vanguard growth

Vanguard health care

And that's just a small sampling

A lot of fuel to boost equities as Bonds and Gold and Utilities and Consumer staples have a lot of fear in their (high) prices. On the flipside Oil, Semi's, Healthcare, Financials and Big Cap Tech should fuel the market to new all-time highs as money leaves "safe defensive" and moves back into the beaten down sectors. Market moves higher as lower rates are looked on as a positive for the total economy (other than savers) instead of a prelude to a major economic downturn.

A few musings on a few previous posts. If someone gets upset about a non-vet "disrespecting" (perceived) vets he need look no further than Donald J Trump and his personal attack of the late Senator John McCain otherwise that's a rouse. Another nugget is the Democrat's supposed use of Special Council Robert Mueller who was appointed by a Republican Attorney General to investigate 1. Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election and whether the Trump campaign conspired with the effort and 2. Whether the President Donald J Trump attempted to obstruct the investigation. The report and Mueller answered both questions. Life is much easier when you stick to the facts.

Bob Mueller. 74 years old now. Leader of a rifle platoon in 'Nam. Bronze Star, Purple Heart. His law career for decades impeccable and virtually unstained. Until the Deep State Dumbocrats got a hold of him and decided to use him as a prop boy for their lying, deceiving and deception towards the American people. I guess they figured if they put someone up like Mueller to "lead" the Russian collusion bullshit the American people would not question such a person. Maybe one of the genius Dumbocrats would have had a word with Mueller prior to his testimony to see where he actually stood on his(?) report. Maybe they would have figured out at that time that Mueller is well on his way towards senility and Alzheimer's and probably would not look good as being the man in charge of trying to frame Pres. Trump. None the less the Dumbocrats threw him to the wolves. They took the chance and they lost. Badly. While Nadler threw leading questions at Mueller you could almost see the invisible string moving Mueller's mouth. When being questioned by Republicans wanting answers Mueller simply did not answer and mumbled about like a lost child at a circus. Are you Dumbocrats done with him now? Can he stay at home and chew his cud and stare out the back window? It is clear now the entire investigation was conducted by TDS Hillary lackeys who are pissed off they aren't wallowing in millions of dollars of corrupt money while at the same time wielding enough power to totally destroy America. Will people end up in jail? They sure will. Most of the corrupt DNC Hillary towel boys will be snapping at each others asses in the shower shortly. Very shortly.

Vanguard U.S growth vs. Buffett. That's an unfair fight right there. Vanguard U.S growth, superior performance. Since inception (1959) you made 10.5% a year. Imagine falling asleep after making that initial investment in 1959, only to be awakened from your deep slumber today. You never looked at a headline. You participated in several bear markets, but still made 10.5% per year on your money. Just in the last ten years you made 15%+ per year. I'll take Vanguard U.S growth any day, any year.

Riks, while I agree with that statement, black folk face these issues at a much larger percentage of their population as a whole than whites ever have. It's simple part of our white privilege. Blacks are charged and found guilty at a far higher rate than any other race. It doesn't matter what socio-economic background you have it's far better to be white than black in this country.

JOEL B. POLLAK 15 Aug 2019

GOSSVILLE, New Hampshire — President Donald Trump is due to address a rally in New Hampshire on Thursday evening — and seventeen miles away from the arena, vendors are selling Trump merchandise to passersby.
Phil Colwell of Tennessee said that he and his crew have set up multiple sites to cash in on the rush of Trump supporters to the South New Hampshire University Arena, which has a seating capacity of just under 12,000 people.

“My crew down there [at the arena] says it’s jam-packed already,” he told us at 2:30 p.m. EDT, before the 7:00 p.m. scheduled start of the rally. “They stayed overnight.”

Trump’s rally comes after two of his three main rivals, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), campaigned across the state this week. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is due to arrive in the Granite State this weekend.

Far too many black families come from one parent homes, where the father is not a presence in their lives. Add in the drugs, alchohol, poor schools, and high crime, and your phuked from the word go. Takes a lot to overcome that, but it can be done. Maybe kids latch on to the guidance from a mentor that can be an escape hatch in later years. Escaping the viscous cycle of crime, drugs, poor schools, undisciplined behavior, and little guidance from home, is a tall task indeed. Nothing replaces the love and discipline that comes from a fathers presence. Sadly.

By Joshua Nelson
Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez said Thursday that the drop in border apprehensions for a second straight month is proof that the deal with Mexico to stem the flow of migrants is working.

“It’s absolute proof. Unquestionably, an agreement with the government of Mexico that was literally unprecedented by way of the degree of cooperation, the commitment they’ve made, to enforce and go down in numbers with their National Guard and law enforcement along their border ... [with] Guatemala,” Perez told “Fox & Friends.”

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported a significant drop in apprehensions at the southwest border in June, after an agreement with the Mexican government. For the month of July, DHS reported more than 72,000 apprehensions, down from more than 132,000 in May.

BORDER APPREHENSIONS DECLINE 28 PERCENT FOLLOWING US-MEXICO PARTNERSHIP, DHS SAYS

President Trump had threatened to punish Mexico with tariffs to force them to step up their own immigration enforcement efforts.

Farmers in Iowa say they're still backing President Donald Trump, despite the U.S.-China trade war that is hitting their industry hard.

"He's doing a good job and trying to make sure we're treated fairly," Kevin Prevo, a fifth-generation farmer from Bloomfield, Iowa, told The Wall Street Journal while at the Iowa State Fair. He said he voted for Trump in 2016 and that "you bet" he'd vote for him again.

China said earlier this month it will suspend all U.S. agricultural imports. On Tuesday, when the Trump administration said it is delaying tariffs on some Chinese goods, the president said he hopes China will now commit to buying some U.S. farm products.

And the manager of the fund never invested with Warren Buffett. In the tax account you want Warren Buffett because he doesn’t even pay a dividend. She could’ve had that grow for 20 years without paying taxes on it.

One thing the banks and Apple both do is increase dividends and buyback stock.

I see the "fear" meter ripping higher as GOLD and BONDS continue higher and stocks continuing to tumble. Its when I like to buy. Buffett in the cat-bird seat with 122 billion to deploy at anytime.

No Hannah & RC....big options trade on S&P 500 and volatility are not my forte. Do like short term safe haven trades like long Gold (GLD) and long/short Bonds (F Fund or TLT-TBT) or short S&P 500 (SDS) to capture some gain when the ocean gets a bit choppy. By and large I am a bull and especially these days of record low interest rates because markets will get a bid from a world looking for a return. Going forward the consumers of the future will be spenders and money (credit) will be plentiful for them to spend. Thanks for your insight Hannah on Buffett and Kraft-Heinz bonds and whether they get a junk rating and Berkshires ability to capitalize. He sold some KHC recently (13-F) so it bears watching. If Ackman of Pershing Capital was buying almost $700 million (a huge position) in Berkshire B shares in Q-2 it was obviously at higher prices than todays share price so for him to invest in Warren in a passive manner is encouraging. I am in for the long term long after Buffett and Munger have gone to heaven because I believe the company is a perpetual cash-flow machine and will be kind to shareholders thru buybacks and grow the shares in price. Having 122 billion in cash is a position a actively managed hedge fund or mutual fund would love to have without a investor paying 2-20% with Buffett as your manager. Berkshire B shares under $200 is a gift if one takes a longer-term view. I have a longer term view. :)!

There were a couple of headlines regarding El-Erian today. I did not read the articles. But the headlines led me to think he was not too concerned about the inversion, but did not think negative yields in the U.S. would be good. He has been around and respected for a long time (was at Pimco with Gross for a while) so I think his comments were probably worth reading even by those who know negative yields are not so good. I, too, am not worried about inverted yield curves. We have Trump magic and he can uninvert them.

I don't like posting links, but a week ago CNBC had a story "One trader bets $5 million that the S&P 500 will give up all of its 2019 gains". They figured this hedge would cover a portfolio of $560 million. The puts (2250 contracts) expire the end of October. The story said the S&P would have to get down to 2487.70 before the puts (2500 strike) would be in the money. However, based on the purchase price of just over $5M, I think it would have to get down to 2477.70, not 2487.70 (maybe a typo in the story), to be in the money. At any rate, that is quite a bet or insurance policy.

I thought maybe Bluestar had $5M in gains he didn't want to pay taxes on this year and is playing it to double it and cover the tax bill. He said he had S&P 500 shorts and this was not a naked trade. So it all makes sense.

We cannot kick ass alone. Germany, China, and the rest of the world are our flank. If they are weak then we are weak.
NPR had put out this information by the time you asked me. I thought it trouble for our ass kickers. Turns out that in this small matter I was right. Just because I do not have cash in the great game of smoke and mirrors does not mean I don't think about it. I have a mind like a steel trap. I know you boys hate me for it.

   When the negotiations broke off with China, I panicked and sold stuff. The next day we got December 15 deadline. My goal is to stay at 50% till the end of the year and just collect my dividends. Can jump to 60% at 4-6% more downturn.

JOSHUA CAPLAN 14 Aug 2019

Appearing Monday on Fox News Channel’s The Ingraham Angle, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) rejected the notion that President Donald Trump is a “racist” and said the Democrats are “overusing” the smear because they lack policy proposals that appeal to voters.
“There’s no doubt that President Trump is not a racist,” Scott, the sole black Republican in the Senate, told guest host Jason Chaffetz. “The facts are very simple that the same folks that voted for me voted for President Trump because President Trump made promises to the voters and he’s keeping the promises.”

The South Carolina lawmaker went on to note the president’s economic policies have benefited minority communities across the country, arguing record-low unemployment for black communities is proof he is not prejudiced.

 /m59785: Welcome aboard Mr Ackman! I guess the Oracle still has a fan base. Might have to turn my S&P 500 short (SDS) remaining shares into Berkshire shares tomorrow morning. Amazon and Bank of America....a lot of shares can be bought when you have 122 billion loose dollar bills handing around doing nothing. I am looking out 18 months when Trump is relegated to the dust bin of history and the global economy and free markets return the world to a economic juggernault. Now is the time for the 2021 investment planting season which should be a fruitful crop now that the adults have returned. LCT....hows the day trading going? Cant figure your daily moves out? 35% -50% up/down long short.

/m59784 Correct! At this time, it would be terribly unfair to own any pet, because of our limited time spent at home.

My Aunt who is fully retired says she cant wait to be pet free. Ties them down to house too often. They want to travel a lot more but cant do it, because of the dog.

I don't plan on owning any pets because of those constraints on your freedom. I love the pit bull breed of dogs. Have a couple on my route and love them. Train them right and they are very friendly.

We only lost 3% today loons. Hold on to your arse.

Black Monday (1987)
Black Monday was an event that took place on Monday, October 19, 1987 when stock markets around the world crashed. The crash began in Hong Kong and spread west to Europe, hitting the United States after other markets had already sustained significant declines. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell exactly 508 points to 1,738.74 (22.61%).[1] In Australia and New Zealand, the 1987 crash is also referred to as "Black Tuesday" because of the time zone difference.
S&P 500 was also down more than 20%.

If I told you January 1 would you take 2% a month profit in the first 71/2 months of the year. You would of got a short term loan. Even after today just about 3% downturn we’re up 15% in the first 7 1/2 months. 😂 what today does, it starts to create a buying opportunity. Mario Gabelli on TV now, one of the greatest value investors of all time. He’s just licking his chops. In December after an 20% downturn, I put new money to work, and it was a gold mine for me. Remember it’s time in the market, not time the market. The market has been the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me in my lifetime, outside of family. Markets go down, I get excited, it’s like sex. 🥰

I mean if you got a decade or so to climb back that's one thing. But if you don't....Or if you're gonna might need that money under 10 years, best keep risk low. Very low till China settles down.

The S&P 500 has gained 21% on average in the two years before a recession, the strategist pointed out. Furthermore, in the last three cycles which are the most similar to the current environment, the S&P 500 rose 34% on average before the economy reached its peak and a recession hit about 25 months after the yield curve inversion, Dwyer said

The "Illegal" immigrants you Demonize (or agree to Demonize) contribute a lot more to this country's economy than they take from it. Soon you'll discover what I'm talking about. LET ICE deport some 11 million of them. Then see Who's going to pick the crops? Who's going to do your Roof? Your Flatwork? (concrete) or lay your bricks? Who's going to do all this, then walk away? Farmers in Alabama (Gooberland) were in a Panic, after ICE rounded up a bunch of "Illegals" and they had no one to pick their crops. They rotted in the field. This is just a Sneak Preview of where you're going with this. May not be WHERE you want to go, but you're going there.

Bluestar- You have 10% of the population that has 70-85% of the wealth. If you lefties were for working people you should have the other 90% of the population. In the first democratic debate an Oxford professor totaled $200 Trillion in new spending from the left. The people that earn their money should keep their money. What a novel idea 👍. When all your money goes to some pin head in Washington DC, you render yourself a slave. I don’t want give up that freedom. Let’s define the word “ illegal immigration” Noncitizens. We have rules and laws that’s what makes a country, has shit to do with brown people, all about rules and regulations. Plus the country is full. You lefties need to get out of your three block radius. I’m for the smallest government possible. That’s what his moved the country forward for the last 250 years or so. Good luck 🍀

Some of the stocks are some of my favorite over the years - Iron Mountain, Kimco Realty, Weyerhaeuser, Ford, Simon Property, Ventas, Chevron, Dominion Energy, Altria, Philip Morris, ATT, Verizon, CVS, International Paper, Carnival, UPS.
   Has a 4.5% dividend and pays monthly. Giving me $150 a month.
  Yesterday picked up 2 of my favorite REIT-SPG, APLE. ( didn’t you sell them last week) we all make mistakes. Giving me $16,000 in dividend income. 👌👍❤️

Data from Credit Suisse going back to 1978 shows:

The last five 2-10 inversions have eventually led to recessions.
A recession occurs, on average, 22 months following a 2-10 inversion.
The S&P 500 is up, on average, 12% one year after a 2-10 inversion.
It’s not until about 18 months after an inversion when the stock market usually turns and posts negative returns.

     Democrats were once known as the party of union members and the white working class. It is now associated with the coastal elites.
     The point is that Democrats have turned their backs on the voters who once lifted them to congressional majorities. They may win in dozens of districts scattered across the country. But they still haven't come to terms with the fact that thousands of their former supporters believe that a wealthy, former reality TV star, casino mogul and New York real estate developer understands Americans working class better than Democrats.

I think famed hedge fund manager Kyle Bass, nailed it with this clip,

Hedge fund manager and Hayman Capital Management founder Kyle Bass said based on the tariff de-escalation, “it does look like President Trump has blinked.” While Trump has been vocal in the tariff fight, Bass said “every time it makes the stock market go down a few hundred points” the president “backs away.”

“It looks like he doesn’t want the price of iPhones going up into Christmas,” Bass said on CNBC’s “Squawk Alley ” Tuesday. “The Chinese are going to read this as a key weakness.”

I thought I should let you know that you did not live up to your own standards. I think you are slipping in your old age. In your third sentence you improperly used the word hat.

MN. /59655 I sold our main Hawaii property in 2015 and moved into our rental property just down the street to avoid any possible headaches/regrets that may pop up here. The laws here really favor the renters over the owners. I still have rental property in Texas and will continue to do so as long as the laws don't drastically change. I am younger than you, but will be out of rental property by the time I hit your age. I don't need the extra money/headaches that come with being a landlord. I use a great property management company in Texas and have had little problems. Check out your state/local laws regarding renters rights and your tolerance for renter bs/excuses and make your decision on that.

I started working at 15. It don't scare me none boy. I do not know when you started working. I do not know when or if you quit working, but I would be willing to bet there was or will be one hell of a party when you walked away. One day after you were or are gone that is. You won't be invited. I like my life, work and all. What are you going to do when you don't work? Or what have you done since you don't?

Maybe the use of "may" was not permissive. Perhaps Boss simply meant may as might as in Trump supporters might be silent because they are torn between wanting desperately all accusations made against Epstein to be true so the Clintons go down but at the same time fearing the accusations including Trump might also gain credence in that process. Also the fact that Trump's DOJ held Epstein might prove problematic. It seems to have worked. After a bit of reflection the Righties seem to have toned things down a notch. So may as can or may as might being in this case as may might be we just can't judge your theory 82. Boss wrote it not you.

Just place your bet and keep your distance from the horses fat man. You could never be a rider. You would be shit at that just like you were a shit worker. A nightmare for your employer by your own admission. I knew guys like you, the "nightmares". We kept them in a job not because they deserved it but because if we could defend crap workers like them keeping the real workers on board was a breeze. So even though they were useless as tits on a boar hog generally we still managed to find use for them. Even the scabs. Somebody even managed to nurse your career all the way to retirement. My hat is off to him or her.

The most recent FBI crime stats show that more people were killed in 2017 with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles of any kind.
The most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018 showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles.

And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the 403 deaths attributed to “rifles” would have been carried out with an “assault weapon.” So the gap between the number of persons beaten to death with hammers and clubs verses those killed with “assault weapons” would be even greater than the gap between those who died in a hammer/club attack versus those who died being shot with “rifles” of any kind.

The 2017 crime figures showed 1,591 people were killed with “knives or cutting instruments” while 403 were killed with “rifles.” This means nearly four times as many people were stabbed to death as were killed with any kind of rifle. (The gap between the number stabbed to death and the number of persons explicitly killed with an “assault weapon” would be even greater.)

Yet Democrats are pushing an “assault weapons” ban and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says legislation for such a ban will be “front and center” when the Senate reconvenes.

LCT, Thanks for your positive assessment on life. It's truly inspirational! Brother Ya is constantly down beat, negative, and lashes out in anger, often. If you believe in the long term picture of America, enduring for the long term, than there's no better place to invest your money, than right here. We have the greatest companies that continue to innovate, Create,and enhance our standard of living. As long as somebody like Bernie doesn't become our POTUS. Then we shall continue our upward March. Socialism is the ultimate destroyer of innovation, productivity and wealth creation. It ensures the equal measure of misery for all. It has never succeeded to increase the standard of living for the masses. Only free market capitalism can do that. America is one of the few countries enjoying solid economic growth right now. Europe is in big trouble. Socialist countries ultimately fail in time. Let's keep America great. Say no to high taxes/ socialism.

Why I don’t like BRK:
       Money rushes out of bank ETFs at fastest pace of the year:

With interest rates declining and threatening banks' profits, money is flowing out of financial ETFs at the fastest pace of the year.

Case in point: The Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF -0.1%) has suffered eight straight days of outflow, a total of almost $3B.
 You don’t want be 42% in financials with profit margins are under pressure by lower rates and flatter yield curve. Plus we seeing slowing growth, it’s not rocket science, it’s common sense.

I never said we were fully financed by postage as it is not quite true. We have been a protected Monopoly in many ways. Our jobs benefit from mandated Union representation. Civil Service retirement benefit package is very generous and not fully funded. We have the additional benefit of FEHB. Our ties to the U.S. Government have been greatly beneficial and pretty damned Socialist. I do not know what part of that was unclear.

RIKSNY- NO, everyone in our society receive what they are given too themselves. Black students excel all the time. You seem to have a need to portray blacks as crippled puppy’s. You fail to realize that individuals are capable of shaping their own life. You cling to this concept that we are only what we are given. Institutional racism my ass, up yours.

He told the audience to imagine a barrel with roughly 5.8 billions of balls — one for everybody in the world. Each ball will determine important factors (e.g., your birthplace, IQ level, gender, ethnicity, skills, parents) in your “new life.”

“If you could put your ball back into the barrel, and they took out 100 balls at random — and you had to from pick one of those, would you put your ball back in?” he asked.

In addition to not knowing which ball you’ll get, there’s another catch: “Of those 100 balls, five of them will be American. So if you want to be in this country, you’ll only have five balls to choose from,” Buffett explained. “Half of them will be women and half men. Half of them will be below average in intelligence and half above average in intelligence.”

He asked the students again: Do you still want to risk taking a second shot at life?

“Most of you won’t want to put your ball back,” he said. “So what you’re really saying is, ’I’m the luckiest 1% of the world right now, sitting in this room —
 the top 1% of the world.” jpg

So true-
        
Candace Owens, founder of the Blexit movement, told Fox News on Thursday that white supremacy isn’t what’s harming black America - it’s “liberal supremacy.”

“The purpose for this is to distract black Americans from the fact that Democrat policies are actually harming the inner cities. They don’t want to talk about the illiteracy rates. They don't want to talk about what’s actually harming black America, because let me tell you, it's not white supremacy. It’s liberal supremacy,” Owens said during an appearance on “The Ingraham Angle.” jpg

/m59521: LCT makes a point with his Berkshires performance when compared to the benchmark S&P 500. And he is also correct when he says Buffett was late to invest in any Tech early on. The reason is because he is a VALUE investor and if one goes back to the dot-com bubble of 1999-2000 nothing back then would have fit his metrics. Buffett/Berkshire is a cash generating machine sitting on a plie that currently stands at $122,000,000,000.00 - and growing because Buffett does not see anything representing VALUE out there. He has not bought anything large in term of dollars since Precision Castparts at 32 billion. LCT is looking for dividend income and I'm looking for Capital gains. I have traded in and out of Berkshire the last 20 months and have no complaints with what Buffett is doing or not doing. Currently sitting with about a 4% loss on current shares and have been adding on weakness with proceeds from my S&P short that has performed well the last two weeks. My money has found a home with the underperforming Berkshire and will let the Oracle do his thing. Too many have the instant gratification theme to investing with Buffett you have to think long term. He has been buying shares back at prices around here and higher the last year and if he believes the shares are below intrinsic value at these levels who am I to disagree.

 Still not a fan of Warren Buffett. Yes, financials are cheap, but you have decelerating growth, no inflation, interest rates decline, and the yield curve flattened. 5-10% in Banks not 42%. Warren got 67% of his portfolio in only 6 stocks. Kraft has been an absolute disaster, Kraft is so far behind the curve it will never Ketchup ( 😂) Wells Fargo give me a break. NO CEO. Apple is just about 25% of portfolio- That’s suicide. Plus Apple going to have trouble with the extra tariffs. Warren will be 89 August 30. If he passed tomorrow stock goes down 5%.

I think the GOP will pull some low hanging gun regulation fruit in the next bit. They will try to lure the Democrats into a "bridge too far" scenario, then drop back a bit and pass some small fig leaf measures with sunset provisions. Their GI Joe base has nowhere else to go. The GOP will claim that they rose to the occasion and passed sensible gun legislation while beating back the gun confiscation Democratic party.

/m59488 LCT is pretty deep into his retirement years. No need to really go beyond 40% equities. From that vantage point, I understand.

I just love those sentiment readings right now. If you used them this entire 10 year bull run, you made buckets of money if you invested when the herd got too bearish. Right now, they are definitely bearish. Any good news on the economy or trade news, and you will see one helluva rally in the second half. I have ZERO international exposure, just 60% U.S equities. Another dive towards or under 2800 on S&P 500 and I add another 10% to equities. This week, equities only down .5% despite awful headline news. Corporate buybacks come in hard, when equities fall into 5% correction zone.

President Donald Trump on Friday mocked former Vice President Joe Biden for mistakenly saying “white kids” when he meant “wealthy kids,” saying the Democrat “is not playing with a full deck.”

Biden said during a campaign stop in Iowa on Thursday that “poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids. Wealthy kids. Black kids. Asian kids. No, I really mean it. But think how we think about it.”

"Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment, I said 'woah,' " Trump told reporters outside the White House, according to The Hill.

This is not somebody you can have as your president, but if he got the nomination I’d be thrilled," he added.
