Some weird -- or may not -- headlines of the day

"Talented Democrats Are All Running for President. It's a Problem". It's a Bloomberg opinion piece, but it still made me laugh at the choice of the word "talented." 

Then it goes to discuss two democrat candidates from Texas, who I guess are going to run for President (which Democrat isn't), because they can't win local Texas elections. 

These, and all the current Democratic hopefuls, are not talented. They are just popular with left-wing liberals. 

Here's some other scary stuff to make you glad it's TGIF.

A recession? Financial advisers say it's right around the corner — or not (This from a publication that is written for Certified Financial Advisors).  The sub head reads: A case can be made that the economy is headed for an imminent slowdown or still has some juice left. If this is the best analysis CFA can come up with, caveat emptor.

New York City Experienced Worst Decline in Restaurant Jobs since 9/11 After $15 Minimum Wage Win
Every economist in the U.S. predicted this would happen, just as it's happening in Seattle, which did the same thing. Oh...except for our left-wing NYT "writer" Paul Krugman, Nobel Prize withstanding. But then, we all know what a Nobel means these days after Obama got his for basically doing nothing. 

Why Do Millennials Want Socialism?
Take one guess. Our education system that teaches capitalism is a bad and unfair system.

California's Rendezvous With Reality
Used to be said that as California goes, so does the rest of the country. Hope not.

The Hidden Agenda Behind the Global Warming Hysteria

Climate change activists are not just interested in reducing carbon emissions in order to "save the planet." Their underlying desire is to overturn capitalism and replace it with socialist governments worldwide. 

Our story starts with the IPCC, or the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a U.N. organization. "And any settlement of the Global Warming issue by the UN would entail massive transfers of wealth from the citizens of wealthy countries to the politicians and bureaucrats of the poorer countries." (1)

In 1992, at the first U.N. Earth Climate Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Program Executive Director Maurice Strong stated, very candidly: 

"We may get to the point where the only way of saving the world will be for industrialized civilization to collapse. Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?" (2)

IRA Taxes: Rules to Know and Understand

Article from

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) can be a great way to save for retirement because of the tax benefits they can provide. If you’re eligible, you can choose a traditional IRA for an up-front tax deduction and defer paying taxes until you take withdrawals in the future. Or, if eligible, you might opt for a Roth IRA and contribute after-tax money in exchange for tax-free distributions down the road.

So, what's the catch? There are a few. If you run afoul of some of the IRS rules surrounding these accounts, the penalties can be quite stiff—all the way up to a disqualification and taxation of your entire account.

Ignorance of the law is no excuse, and with few exceptions, the IRS isn’t very forgiving of mistakes. Knowing the rules can help you navigate the many potential IRA tax traps you might encounter on your way to retirement.

Keep in mind that when we discuss taxes and penalties, we’re referring to those at the federal level. In most states, you will also…

Critical Financial Steps When Buying a Home

In my lifetime, I have bought six houses, and sold five. I currently live in the sixth, which was new construction, which was an adventure unlike purchasing an existing home, But the principles of buying a home are the same, whether you are purchasing a new home, or an existing home.

1. Understand why you want to buy a house
Purchasing a home is a major decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s important to define your personal and financial goals before proceeding.
