Seems you will never understand The Concept of Business Aluni Rolla!! Its why Im where Im at and you are Living A Dream of Give to the Poor and Needy and take it from the Business's!! ITS why they are going overseas!! Wake up and smell the Coffee!!! THIS COUNTRY IS FOUNDED ON CAPITALISM!! Its why we have WALL STREET!! its not Hard to get into the market and Make Money!! Problem is too many wanna see FAST MONEY and Make Bad Decisions! I followed Berkshire Hathaway since the 80's and done well Following What A Billionaire buys (Warren Buffet)..Corp rate investment has done me well I LOVE the ones Like you who CRY corporate Greed!! When you run down to Walmart keep thinking that!! IM not the one you should be mad at! IM not the one who Let Wally World into Caruthersville and Killed the Down town!!

Its why they vote Liberal!!! Its Just pretty soon if EVERYONE votes Liberal whos gonna pay for all the Free Sh*t????
Look don't try to give me advice about how to make money in the market - I'M NOT INTERESTED!!! I don't give a rat's a-- how how you made a bundle in the stock market!!! I could care less!
The only thing I feel for you is PITY!
It' obvious where your heart & mind are focused. Yes, I've got some mutual funds. I only have them because my husband contributed to his employer 401 account ever since they started the 401 accounts & even before that back in the 70's or 80's - I can't remember.
His employer was VERY generous & matched his contriubtions dollar for dollar - so, he had a sizable nestegg when he retired. His employer also provided him/me with a regular monthly retirement check. When my husband retired, he rolled his 401 over into Edward Jones into a some type of safe funds - not the fast growth kind! My husband passed away last year & all his mutual funds were passed on to me.
This is the only reason I'm involved in the stock market in the first place. I just let that money stay in there & never take any dividends - I just let it keep growing or shrinking (however the winds blow the stock market). I'm not too concerned about it. I do have to withdraw a little bit every year (something that started when my husband reached 71 or so). I figure someday - it will all go to our kids anyway.
Yes, I shop at Wal-Mart, but since so many business have closed down, you don't have much choice - about the only choices we have in Rolla are Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Kohls, Pennys, Goodys, Krogers, Country Mart & a handfull other small local business - I shop at all of these places from time to time.
Yes, I'm a liberal - but I (nor any member of my family) have ever looked to the government for any FREEBEES! Yes, I draw a Social Security check every month & I even get an extra amount from my husbands Social Security in the form of a widow's benefit. I also have MEDICARE.
But, in case you didn't know it - SOCIAL SECURITY & MEDICARE ARE NOT FREEBEES!!! My husband & I paid into these programs all our working lives (over 80 years)!!! Many young people don't seem to understand when you pay into Social Security it's just like putting money in the bank for your old age...
