    Is it time to get out of the market?

    The only thing it has going for it is lower fees. Otherwise, I can't think of any other reason. With the current stimulus plan, I was wondering if I could find a way to move $100k now with minimal taxes. Maybe a transfer to another IRA?

    They used to allow daily moves. Then they corrected this and made it twice a month between any fund. After that, you can only move it to the G fund. (as many times as you want). Big whoop. The other thing that sucks is the amount of time it takes to make the transfer. You have to put the order in before noon and it's processed some time before midnight. After noon, and it doesn't get processed until the next day. I'm picturing some guy that looks like Rob Moranis entering your change orders into a PC running Windows 95.

    How do you know? Nobody has seen his taxes.

    Coronavirus - Doomsday

    I'm going to venture a guess, and say that there are not many people posting here that have had any personal experience with Trump. I think tons of people are giant doosh bags. I could pick a half dozen that have posted here today. That doesn't mean I focking hate them. I don't know them. I just know their persona on a random message board. Who knows, we might be best friends in real life. This just proves that our two party system sucks. With more choices, we may not have to choose the lesser of two evils.

    With the island or Trump re-election? Even so, it may take more time to get the funds from Mexico and actually build the wall. The first chance the Dems get, they will shut down construction. EDIT: Which is why I'm growing tired of partisan politics from both sides. Instead of working against each other for 8 years, only to have a new administration spend years undoing things, find a solution that both can agree on and let's get some done..

    What if Trump isn't re-elected. Does the USMCA state that funds from Mexico will pay for the wall? If Sleepy Joe get's elected, that money will go towards a new pedophile island in the South Pacific.

    Trump made the statement "If we have 100k-200k deaths, we will have done a good job". He referenced the potential for 2.2 million deaths. Where did either of these numbers come from? I'm guessing his task force were the ones that gave him those numbers. But, what if the numbers were actually 60k-80k deaths, and Trump just presented it as higher? He can them claim a victory based off numbers that he fabricated. Looking at other countries, what would have made anyone think that we would have 100-200k deaths? No other country is even close to that. We may hit those numbers globally.

    I understand that he was rallying his base. Many of which believed that Mexico was going to cut a check to the U.S. Those that were on board with the principle, but questioned the ability to finance without control of Congress, questioned the how. Since he can still make them pay for it indirectly, where is the wall? How is it being paid for? Why is it that he and the Dems still have fights over funding all the time?

    Such as saying you focking hate a President. Not for anything he has done, but because of his personality. Leaves a lot of grey area for hatred if that's the bar.

    And that's why a lot of people don't think he's a good President. The position represents all of us. To accept his behavior, is accepting that you are, at some level, a doosh. Just the other day, he said that he probably wouldn't wear a face mask. To paraphrase, because it isn't "Presidential". That's where he draws the line? Face masks. I still don't focking hate him. I just don't think he's the best choice for President. Maybe he could have a future in reality TV. He should try that.

    If I had a nickel for every time he said "... and Mexico is going to pay for it", I wouldn't worry about the stock market. It became as important as building the wall. Otherwise he wouldn't have repeated it so much.

    If I had voted for Trump, one of the reasons would have been because of his stance on immigrants coming across our southern border unchecked. Building a wall seems like a solution that would force them to come through entry points. The same way you and I go through entry points at football game, airports, etc. A person with an average number of brain cells would have wondered how he would get the funding with "the swamp" still in place. But then he said that Mexico would pay for it. That was a huge part of his platform/policy that he ran on. It may not have been a bad policy, but it was a failure on Trumps part. He either lied or was too ignorant to know it was never going to happen.

    I gave you two. When does Mexico pay for the wall? What did we get out of the tariff war with China? (besides Covid-19, perhaps)

    Not sure what you're looking for? I didn't vote for him. I also didn't vote for Hillary. I didn't think either was good for the country. I was for Trump's approach to trade with China, but I don't think we've made the gains that were hoped for. Using his words, the cure shouldn't be worse than the virus. (tariffs hurt us more than China) The virus will end up doing more for bringing production back to the U.S. than anything Trump has done. I'd also like to know when Mexico is going to pay for the wall?
