Pelle, everything you say is dishonest, cos you never say or explain the real reasons why you support the Demorats or even admit that you have very rich parents.

my vote counted the same as every other floridian!
my friends in texas voted too - every 1 of their votes counted exactly
the same as their neighbors' votes! (mostly trump votes, btw! hehehe).
 
you're kinda slow, do you not understand our system of tallying votes?

Read the above. 20 states having a combined population half of that of
CA, have the same number of senators.

Well, I thought exactly the same thing, had the same pessimism. I'm not saying that it will, for sure, be there when you reach retirement age, but it has been for me and I hope it will be the same for you.

In my personal experiences with labor, direct or contracting thru an intermediary, virtually all of them are working thru the system. Taxes, etc.
 
I tend to hire the usual landscapers and cleaning folks directly, and roofers, painters, etc., through contractors. I've become friendly enough with some of the contractors so that they tell me that they believe they hire illegals routinely.
 
One other observation: the pay is not substandard; it's true that in their position it could be substandard, but the market for trades or maintenance labor for the last 20 years has been such that they get 15-20 per hour.
 
Personally I think what's going on is a sort of oddball tacit agreement: the illegals come up here and work for much more then they could get back home--even after paying taxes. Few, if any, are thinking about the payroll taxes they're paying and that they'll never collect benefits at the back end. If they think of it at all, it's a lot like la mordidita--a small bribe paid to allow a certain benefit.
 
These are just my guesses.

I never knew, either, but my thinking was that more money into savings (retirement, espec) was always the right answer--I mean, a good way to look at money, as an individual, is that it's like fat. It stores survival against lean times.
 
In the case of retirement, these are foreseeable lean times, so it's like being a hibernating animal: get as fat as possible because winter is coming.
 
Now I'm into burning fat. In a conservative portfolio of 60% bonds, 35% stocks, 5% cash, you can reasonably expect 3.2% to 3.8% *income*. This is cash yield and not equity growth. If you have enough saved principal in the IRA--e.g., 2M, you'd be getting 64-76K per year, without touching principal; this income stream could go on forever, and you kids would inherit the pricipal--although they'd have to pay taxes due on it.
 
If the 2M is in a Roth, the 64-76K is tax free; if inherited by your kids, they pay no taxes. If a regular IRA/401K, it is taxed as normal income.
 
On top of this yield, you'll have SS (I sincerely believe you will get it, but it's wise to prepare otherwise). The max current SS benefit is ~3500 per mo--it will depend on how much you paid into the system--of which 85% is taxable income, so you'd have your retirement yield (64-76K) plus SS benefit ($42K).
 
It is also good to have a source of passive income, like rental income, too.
 
At this point I wish that all of our retirement savings had been put into Roths, not regular pre-tax IRAs. Some is, some is not.

Oh, I see:
 
"long term, another story. long term, it's no longer the USA".
 
You mean, it's no longer the white America?
 
SO you really did buy into the identity politics, the Wall.

Maybe the little Demmies can wheel out a manipulated liar like Basey Ford like they did with Kavanaugh, only person here who believes her now is Raja, but as always PWL, reilloc and Pelle won't admit it "I don't know" the liars say.

This time you can. Businessman Trumpski will go down in history as the
man who single-handedly ended the longest bull market.
 
Just the other day he caused a 800 point drop with the twittering and JP
Morgan called him a liar.
 
Yep, yep.
