Just settle down now, you are making a fool of yourself again. Let me point something out to you. the following is the first post I made in this exchange with you Morons.
Wiser than DKN and Barney wrote:
Hey Barney thought i'd give you some news. You say economy is getting better. I say you are so wrong. The USDA just released their last numbers on food stamps. It was 46 million people on foodstamps. Now the new number is 47.8 million people are on food stamps. Do the math, that's an increase. We also got 12 million people out of work. Use some logic. If ecomony is growing as you claim, the people on food stamps would be decreasing and we would have less people out of work. The ecomony shrunk the last quarter. So that blows a hold in your numbers. Face it barney you're wrong and numbers don't lie.
Among the sectors adding the most jobs in February were construction, which hired 48,000 people; health care, which added 32,000 people; and the retail sector, which added nearly 24,000. Temporary services payrolls grew by 16,000, possibly a leading indicator for future hiring. The motion-picture industry added 20,800 jobs.
Now tell me again, what you told me in that second sentance in the above post.
You boys remind me of The Apple Dumpling Gang.
Without a tennis ball or a stick to throw and watch you chase, I'll answer your pointless question to amuse myself. Nothing you post pertains truthfully to Obama wasting tax payers money. It is impossible for liberals to deal truthfully with the reality of Obama or the wasting tax payers money. The sequester proved that but from your posts, it's obvious that a simpleton such as yourself is incapable of realizing that.

It could happen. I'd say now is a good time to cash it in (or part of it) if you're worried, AND as long as it won't hurt financially. If you have a ROTH, and have had it for more than five years, it can be tapped into without penalties or taxes.

It is SO tempting to pull some out now and pay off some of my debts, but I'm afraid of doing that at this point. I don't want to lose the eventual growth I'll get if I take it out.

<quoted text> Yes indeed. there is a ready cash market for guns & ammo. Ive got enough to last me. Just yesterday while rummaging in a closet I stumbled on a box of 100 12 guage shotgun shell,s I bought two years ago and forgot about having them. I wish I had more 44 mag ammo for my Ruger blackhawk handgun. many years ago I bought dozens of those sardine cans of 1000 rounds of 7.62x 39 shells. they work in a SKS or Ak47. I could really turn a huge profit selling them.
I found someone who buys old albums and 45's. I'm considering selling all my albums. I don't play them any more and they just collect dust and take up space. He pays extra for Bealtes stuff, so I might even sell my Beatles collection. Unfortunatley, they have all been used, and used bigtime! They aren't in pristine condition.

<quoted text>No barney the reason why the stock market is on a high is because ben is printing money and pumping all that printed money into the stock market and when ben stops printing the stock market will drop like a rock. If you think it won't then you are kidding yourself.

They sure ain't got the money to blow on the stock market.

Taxes are already paid on a ROTH. Whatever it grows to is yours to keep....ALL of it! But you have to have "earned income" to contribute to it and you can't put any more that $5000 a year in it.

When they print money, money becomes worth less. That's just a fact. It WILL all catch up eventually. Wait until a loaf of bread hits $50,000..... then you'll understand.

That was quite a momentous explanation, completely evasive, totally self-serving, and filled with predictably tired and non-factual BS.

I understand inflation, but you are describeing hyper inflation.

Consumer prices rose just 1.7 percent in 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. That's about half the pace of 2011 — when prices went up 3 percent.

In December, BLS says, prices were unchanged.

One major reason inflation slowed last year: Gas prices went up just 1.7 percent, after gains of 13.8 percent in 2010 and 9.9 percent in 2011. Also, food costs rose 1.8 percent. BLS says that was "a deceleration" from the 4.7 percent increase in 2011.

As Reuters writes, the news that inflation remains in check "should help give the Federal Reserve room to prop up the economy by staying on its ultra-easy monetary policy path." In other words, there's no reason to think the Fed will need to start pushing up short-term interest rates anytime soon.

1.7 is not "about half" did they have math in Salem? If you believe interest rates will not rise any time soon then I suggest you purchase Bonds. I got out of the Bond Market 2 weeks ago. Conventional wisdom says interest rates really have no place left to go but up! Good luck..

If you are 50 years old or older you can contribute up to $6,500.00 in 2013, if you have enough taxable income to reach the maximum contribution.

Age 49 and under max is $5500 for 2013.

ROF-LMAO

"1.7 is not "about half"- not half of what?

3%/2 = 1.5

Two tenths of a percent seems pretty damn close to me.

When a traditional savings account at the bank is paying less than 1% I would agree, interest rates have no way to go but up.
