re: At what amount of savings or net worth do you consider someone to be rich? - oneg8rh8r
I don't know about RICH, but I believe when you don't have to think about what it is your spending money on I think you are well on your way. I think the number I'd be comfortable with is a combination of: Over 3M in low risk dividend earning stocks/bonds or a fixed retirement (6k) @ month. ...

re: Our Recruiting Is Terrible! - oneg8rh8r
Recruiting is nothing more than NIL deals now. As you know, statistically, only a very small portion of these kids will go on to be pros and make Millions. So, if they have a chance to garner that kind of money based on potential and not production, they would be stupid not to maximize that. ...

re: Any educated guesses on when interest rates go back down to 3-4% range again? - oneg8rh8r
Low interest rates were great, but you have to understand the problems that were created and existed in order to get us there. Unfortunately, you had better hope we don't see them again any time soon as this means we are driving this thing off the cliff again....

re: No homestead exemption for active military? - oneg8rh8r
I didn't find LA to be very friendly or supportive of service memebers.....they just wanted our money. I received nothing for my retirement and the things my buddies requested of the state were all left unanswered or no nothing. Before I reenlisted I realized LA was about to take a large chunk...

re: OSU Day told business leaders it will take $13m in NIL to keep roster intact - oneg8rh8r
I have never seen or read one of these contracts. Do they carry over into their professional careers? Is there writing in a contract that makes a BOOSTER the sole eligible sponsor, and if a kid does make it big, does the BOOSTER now control the rights like a company and now NIKE has to pay...

re: Sleep number beds - oneg8rh8r
We bought a sleep number bed about 2 years ago. I never got comfortable on any setting and didn't enjoy it AT ALL. My wife put up with it for a while, but it now sits in our guest bedroom. Back to a top of the line mattress for us. ...

re: Jerome Powell says the Fed could hike rates by .75 AGAIN in July! - oneg8rh8r
.75 at a minimum. 100 pts is probably what is NEEDED, but we probably won't get it. I went to the gas pump last week, 2015 Ford Ecoboost $178 to fill up. Today same truck, same pump, $185. THIS ALL STARTS WITH FOSSIL FUELS, IF THEY DON'T COME DOWN.....NOTHING IN THE DOW- RANGE SUPPLY CHAIN...

re: Main Street starting to feel the pain in Retirement accounts - oneg8rh8r
There are WAY more ways to make money in a bad market than in a good market. My wife stays at home and trades options with our funds and in a falling market....correction, in a plummeting market, making money is easy. There are days she earns over 200% of what she invests in a matter of hours....

re: Anybody get extremely lucky with mortage and auto financing in the last two years or so? - oneg8rh8r
Locked in a VA jumbo loan in Nov at 2.25% fixed for 30 with the VA funding fee being waived due to disability rating; and was given a boat load of credit to close so the only thing I had to bring to closing was a pen. The kicker was I had a car that was paid off in full, and my credit union offer...

re: Main Street starting to feel the pain in Retirement accounts - oneg8rh8r
I never understood the want for a FM, historically and statically, they don't beat INDEX averages. Do your own investing in ETF's of your liking, dollar cost average and be smart where you invest. ...

re: Whats the best guess on the CPI in the morning? - oneg8rh8r
If they do, this will drag out FOREVER. They need to raise a 100 pts, in June and probably another 75 in July and then sit and wait to see if it was enough....

re: Where are you putting your cash these days, and why? - oneg8rh8r
I'm holding cash for about another 2 months. I really think the next 2 interest rate hikes are going to do a number on people that think the price is already baked in. I think we see a huge sell off OVERALL, there may be more ups and downs in the interim, but I'm expecting all major index's to b...

NONE. I made a promise a long time ago after getting into cc problems in my early 20's with kids. I don't care what my balance is now, from 2k-rediculous / mth. It gets paid off. I shake my head at the number, but it still gets paid off....
