I max out my 401K and Roth IRA each year, plus invest an additional 7% of my salary in other things like real estate, gold, mutual and hedge funds, do you think I can allow myself to spend a measly $25 on a license plate for my car? If you are such an investment genius, what other properties do you own besides that "upper middle class" cookie cutter in Avon?
So we have one engineer who can invest. You must be the "internet predator" who tracks my every post and uses a different posting name for your different forums and/or posts, huh.

Again, I don't live in a cookie cutter but you can continue to state non-factual information all you want. Doesn't bother me a bit. Of course, now it would seem that you are the one posting how well to do you are.

So if we go back to what started this, the comment was that there are PU plates everywhere and an insinuation that Burger King and McDonalds didn't pay enough for IU graduates to afford plates. I see more IU plates than I see PU to be quite honest about it.

I still stand by my comment that even though there are a lot of cars who have PU plates, not all of the cars are BMW's, Lexus's, etc. so maybe PU graduates don't all do as well as some of you might think.

I didn't tell anyone to not buy the plates. As with me, you are welcome to spend your money any way you like. Good for you that you save all that money!

By the time you retire, you won't get SS and you'll need every penny just like me.

Actually, I am able to "afford" to invest so much because I don't throw my money down on BMWs and Lexus'. If others would realize which investments to make and which are just throwing money down the drain, maybe our economy wouldn't be so volatile. The racking up of credit card debt and high loan payments is part of the reason SS won't be around.

I would add that the negligence of our congressmen also has contributed greatly to the decline of SS. If they were in the same program, the program would be in so much better shape. Instead, they have their own little program with no worries.

Very good point. By now the system (our entire government) is so out of whack that our elected officials are only out for voting for bills and putting forth ideas that will keep them elected. They care nothing about our country as it was meant to be, just that they remain in power, not matter the method.

Yeah, kinda off track, but since no one really talks sports on here, they just bash each other's teams, the conversation somehow veered off course. At least it was a few posts that didn't include "PUkes", "Purdon't", "Loosiers", "Cellvin Sanctions", etc. at least it was a few posts that didn't resort to junior high tendencies.

Agreed. It is nice to actually talk in a civil fashion for a change! Mike, I was just randomly throwing out the 10% figure. My 401K is doing pretty well. We had pre-mature twins and got the old $50,000 insurance co-pay bill handed to us because the hospital was out of network, but we paid that down in 2 years, and now I'm getting back into things. Take care.

A. I freaking pumped beyond belief with the way Purdue played Saturday against Wisc.

B. I love how this plate thing I started turned into even more bashing. As far as do "the nicer carxs carry IU or Purdue plates". I'm not petty enough to pay attention to that crap. I could give a damn what kind of car anyone drives. I'm a young Purdue grad and think 'm doing well. I think spending big cash for a "pimped out ride" is a total waste of money on something that quickly depreciates. Just my personal choice. That being said I also spent $25 on two of my vehicles to get Purdue plates simply as a salute to my alma mater and favorite sports team (along with the Colts). Again, a waste of money to some people, but I wanted to, so I am cool with it.

As for which plate you see more of. I'd LOVE to see the BMV numbers on how many of each are sold in the Marion and halo county region of each plate. My guess is it's fairly close, but just in my again 'very unscientific straw polls while driving the local roads', I think I see more of Purdue, probably 2:1. If someone could find stats on this, it would be great.

Carry on I love Dish. That was a great ball game on Saturday. I was in the same graduating class as Chad Austin and Brad Miller. This team is alot like that one, and is probably better. It has been a long time since we've been this good!
