Just be happy you don't work for me. They get really frustrated until they learn to always line up opinion as opinion and supporting information and verification to insure they don't have to do it again.

So far I have helped 38 folks launch their own biz doing this successfully so the system does work.

And you you think I am bad, the LtCol that broke me was beyond frustrating. I could never figure out how he was still alive. Fragging was still fairly fresh in most folks mind.

I am glad that you are successful in the area of your professional life.

As for your system though it is very susceptible to GIGO.

And finally, I learned that people are never to be broken, just channeled.

Broken means "broken of bad, lazy habits".

And no, the approach that I was taught and teach and use is not really subject to GIGO. That can be weeded out in the first sweep of any analysis. It is only kept on the side to understand the weaknesses of the previous failures in any good SWOT analysis.

How about a government bailout of my 401k?

Don't believe everything you think

TNT,
Why don't you tell us why you want Uncle Sam handles your 401K? What benefits you see?

For me, nope. I don't need the Fed's helping hand. If I miscalculate and lost my shirt, its my own fault.

It's like in the Navy, why would anyone wants to sit in the back as an aviator? If I were to slam on the flight deck, I do it on my own term, not by the guy in the front seat who dictates whether I live or die.

You are misunderstanding me. I am deadset against the Gubment touching our 401(K)'s. Please point out where I have said anything different!

I broke this on BWOT as "Kiss your 401K goodbye..." on November 2, 2008. Retirement accts held by trustees are a ready source of massive amounts of cash that an impoverished government has eyes for. I believe this proposal will grow legs, particularly because the Bamster can only see trillion dollar debts as far as the eye can see.

That you did Bottomline and I seem to remember that you were called Kookberger because of it. Well now the folks here are on notice aren't they?

All hail Bottomline! A true prognosticator!
