The unconstitutional promises of the government are reliant on the american people continually consuming through debt. We do not need billions of dollars of junk from China or billions of dollars of oil from over seas. We could be reviving our economy on things we use everyday, through energy indepe...

As stated above, you can diversify in numerous funds with a minimum of 50 per month with no upfront investment. I have four funds with TRP and am happy as well.

What is the interest on your SL? 6k should be sufficient for an EF at this time. Depending on your SL interest, I would consider paying down the SL first, starting with about 4k. I would stay in your current housing till it is paid and then save again. Posting your income would allow for more detail...

I keep a 1k cushion in the household account.
I keep a 5k cushion in business the account.

I would freak if I went below 10k in my EF.

I keep these cushions so that I can pay bills as they come. Many are auto-draft.

I read the book last year and was not impressed. It was Kiyosaki basically giving his opinion and Trump coming behind with his elitist complementary overview.

Things at the Federal level are VERY different. This is because the Federal government prints Dollars and therefore doesn't have to compete with anyone to earn those Dollars. All the Dollars just circulate around within the jurisdiction of the Federal government. Even if they leave our borders in e...

And if I have to balance my budget, why doesn't my government! The answer to that question probably requires more study than you have time for right now. But you should be aware that it is not a universal truth, either in personal finance or government finance, that a balanced budget is always a go...

I'm for a fair tax or consumption tax. The tax can have different %'s per item based on necessity or luxury. But ultimately, it will do nothing to improve the economy or our freedoms if the government does not cut programs and spending. The sticker shock would be a tough pill to swallow at first, bu...

You are in a position to follow your dream. I would suggest you save up some money first, to make the transition easier. Go for it.

What taxation should be expected on insurance for a busines fire? My mom lost her business of 20+ years to a fire this week. Now with no way to make income any time soon i'm worried about how the insurance money will last her. I'm worried that the IRS will tax it and she'll end up with nothing to l...

How much of the roth would be subject to the 10% penalty? I would use any of the roth that is not penalized towards your debt and payout the rest.

But as stated above, you need to be secure in your job. If I were not going to pay debt due to job loss, it would be CC debt.

I went and left wanting to get a gun and shoot an elephant just to watch it fall on a donkey. There has to be a better form of taxation than the current system. But more importantly, there is a true sense that the government has over stepped its boundry. If the people do not rise up now, we will onl...

I'll be at the one in Tulsa. I'm protesting massive debt, spending and bailouts.
