October 13, 2009

For those who want to know how complex some of the labor and retirement laws are, check this out: Participants and Advisors Are Hurt By High 401K Fees. Apparently the retirement plans have high fees the advisors never get any part of, and may not be aware of. But, that’s not the kicker. To find […]

Media And White House Smokescreens

October 9, 2009

There were a couple of news articles in last few days that particularly caught my eye. One article announced that Retail sales are at 2005 levels.

October 16, 2008

My wife has been pretty much oblivious to politics the whole time I’ve known her…at least until this election, and the previous elections. I amazed at how fast she is picking up on things, though. We watched the final debate tonight. She was catching both of them in ridiculous statements. Which brings me to the […]

October 5, 2008

I haven’t done a “sermonette” in a long time. But, I was thinking on the way home from work about something, and thought I would share it. “Mercy triumphs over judgment.” James 2:13. (…the whole verse by the way reads, “because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy […]
