  10. Better to have a 50 topes then big trucks killing people , since they some apply there breaks to late and want to to land in Walmart parking lot. Not only apply they break late, poor maintenance on these trucks, They have to be slowed down. since i been here at lakeside there have been several people killed or badly injured at the intersection in front of Walmart. possible New drivers to with big trucks experiencing coming down that hill and turning for the first time. A lot of people are in a hurry to kill themselves and take risks that are unnecessary. I used to be a paramedic in my 20'S lived in small town outside of st Louis called high ridge with highway 30 going by it. i thought it was a quiet town with not much happening. but as a paramedic there where accidents almost everyday on the 40 mile stretch of the highway, that where glass and metal cleaned up withing a few hours. i was shocked how many accidents and deaths happen and very few people know about it.. I know of at least 9 people here that have been side swiped by motorcycles who did not slow down. There are several i know who while not drive anymore as they are at the age where there attention span is slowed down. what is a life worth. I am sure those topes saved lives. Those topes may have saved your life and you did not even know it.
  11. Secure act raises taxes for many: The new 10-year rule drastically diminishes the chances of withdrawing assets in a tax-friendly manner For those sons and daughters who are beneficiaries nearing retirement (in less than 10 years) you may want to delay taking any withdrawals from these inherited accounts under the 10-year rule until after you have retired, so that the withdrawal is not taken on top of their earned income (current salary), There are no required minimum distributions within those 10 years, but the entire balance must be distributed after the 10th year. You could spread the distribution over 3 or 4 years if you want, the 8th, 9th and 10th year etc to pay less taxes. The downside of secure act allowing more annuities in 401k plans: Annuities are complex investment products, and the wrong choice can be detrimental to a person’s portfolio. Will The annuity company be there for you. You are betting on their financial stability. In the late 80s Mutual benefit annuity company when under and gave everyone about 60% of there principal with no interest. Mutual benefit actuaries when they sold the annuities did not calculate people would live longer. Upside of annuities “If they can be structured in a way to meet long-term retirement income objectives You may live to be 100. We will see if there are any loop holes to the secure act as it gets applied in the next two years.

This who reached 70 1/2 in 2019 or before are under the same old rules ,nothing changed for you. your withdrawal age is 70 1/2.

  19. i love making over 7% interest in mexico, beats 1 % in most banks in USA, yes some countries in south america are weakening the monetary policy to be competitive in the world. the many countries are weaking thier currency to be competitive is causing inflation in the local economies. These south Americans are panicking and moving money to USA to banks in MIami The current administration in USA wants a weaker dollar, and they want gold to be higher. to pay off national debt. Trump stated how would like of see USA on the gold Standard, his ideas that with inflation and gold at 3000 on USA financial balance sheet, would wipe at all the USA national debt. Mexico gross national income will in the next five years will grow faster than USA. I love living in mexico. When we get the next recession and those who invested in USA stocks lose over 10% they will have rethink there investments. you do not make money buying the high. You make money selling at the high it is Time for US expats to rethink there allocation of assets and rotate there investments to safer fixed income like 7% I am over 50 years old, i can not afford lose 10% of my assets, i like fixed income of 7% Most people do realize 70% of the growth in the last ten years of the stock was QE 1 and 2 USA printing money. Recently USA printed over 1 trillion dollar to keep the budget in the green. How long can you do that US dollar is losing value, cost more to buy stocks, cost more for education, cost more to buy house, more for groceries . move to Mexico, live on less money, higher standard of living, sell your USA house and buy a bigger better house here in mexico made of brick and tile, not wood. You watch more people are moving to mexico, buying pesos and living of off the 7%, with no worry of a repeat of 2008. Remember USA banks almost when out of business in 2008, mexico banks did not have a problem with leveraged debt.
