RANT: Boston has to be examined

The Plot Thickens

“University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines. ‘They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise,’ Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He’s been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.”

And the police-state still couldn’t get it right.

Hmmm. Or did it? Be sure to catch the readers’ comments: plenty of other skeptics out there, flinging terms like “false-flag” and “psy-ops.”

I too don’t trust the mainstream media not to be a lapdog for “group think”.

Within hours, the liberal press (CNN and MSNBC) were indicting the “right wing”.

Sorry, but I have no idea who did it.

I’m not even sure there was “extra security”. 

What I do know, deep in my heart, that we haven’t gotten, won’t get, may never know the “true story”. 

Argh!

MONEY: Tax deferred maybe a trap!

That’s the message in President Obama’s budget for fiscal 2014, which for the first time proposes to cap the amount Americans can save in these tax-sheltered investment vehicles. The White House explanation is that some people have accumulated “substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.” So Mr. Obama proposes to “limit an individual’s total balance across tax-preferred accounts to an amount sufficient to finance an annuity of not more than $205,000 per year in retirement, or about $3 million for someone retiring in 2013.”

Interesting. 

When the big IRA / 401k accounts are thought about logically, are they not converting “capital gains” into “ordinary income”?

Would they be better off making investments in taxable accounts?
