Re: What is going on with Joe Biden? (losing his mind?)

@CS From what I'm gathering the misogynistic behavior is displayed from the Democratic party. There were plenty of better than Biden candidates that had an opportunity and the Democratic party and their voters just simply refused to vote for them. As an independent voter it is simply stunning that d...

Re: Protests

Protesting could happen nationally if employment figures take a sharp negative turn. With low unemployment, wages slowly increasing and the stock market doing well many people were living high on the hog. Now that reality has hit and people who did "pick themselves up by the bootstraps" wi...

Re: COVID-19

Coming from NE Wisconsin the results are varied in terms of what measures are being implemented individually. My workplace is taking this very seriously. All meetings have been cancelled or reworked to be held remotely. Social distancing is enforced and working from home went from 0% to 70% in less ...

Re: IPCC Report

There are a multitude of solutions and not one is likely to be implemented on the scale needed to resolve the problem. Market forces are not going to solve this issue due to obvious reasons. Environmental forces have a delayed response to our destruction and as a result will not provide negative fee...

Re: Do you listen to motivational talks?

I have listened to one Brian Tracy cd and that was about seven years ago. It did not do much. Motivational speakers have never really appealed to me. Normally their message is to illicit some type of emotional response which is unlikely to be interpreted positively. Initially the message sounds upli...

Re: Significant others: Having the talk ...

DW (INFJ) was brought around by me (INTJ/INTP). DW has been receptive from the start regarding financial literacy and came from a household that was "frugal" by your average Joe. She already was used to making things like a cellphone last four years instead of the usual one to two. She sho...

1) Your business partner starts gambling on penny stocks with company funds. 2) Your teenage daughter becomes addicted to pain-killers and starts pawning your belongings. 3) Your spouse runs away to Tahiti to paint naked teenage girls and leaves you to cover the mortgage. 4) Your Aunt who is a memb...

Re: Is it worth it to create joint finances?

We have been married seven years and together for eleven. We enjoy joint finances. As a married couple we look at all accounts and consider all money ours. My wife and I look at any and all receipts every night to know what we are spending. We have a general rule that if it is more than one dollar t...

Hello from Wisconsin

Hello everyone. I am from Wisconsin. I have followed the forums and the blog for about five years. I purchased the book and then passed it on to another person. I have also purchased a copy for my BIL for the holidays. I figured it was time to join the community given the amount of time I lurked in ...
