Hi kenm. Some people are more equal than others. Yes, you better shut up, kenm. If you document hocus2004's inanities, some might call them idiocies, then you are posting in bad faith/not ready to discuss the realities of SWRs/blahblahblah. Interesting how so many of those who essentially created th...

If you can't play by the rules, and you can't be nice, you can bet your a#$ it will! Perhaps we disagree on the rules. Have you been snipping/deleting my posts (saw the first one, any others)? whatshisname seems to inspire that sort of thing... I wonder if you will enjoy the bargain you've struck. ...

I'm really stunned by how much former Big 5 Audit Managers can learn from a full-on cluster-... I mean circle-... Oh, you know what I mean. :wink:

I'm really grateful to hocus for teaching me about value investing. Hocus taught me that after he began posting at tmf in 99/00. That fantabulous post, which I commemorate with an unusually hairy d*mp every May 13, was a real 'insight'. Unfortunately, hocus didn't come up with his 'tool' (God, is th...

At any rate, I didn't follow this train of thought in my earlier post, although it occured to me, because I'm trying to avoid getting all four limbs and my head stuck in the tarbaby this time around. Too late! That's OK. Hocus' infrequent posting pledge seems to have been honored in the breach. And...

hocus -

It makes no sense for us to be at battle. We all want the same thing. Every blessed one of us. Including intercst.

Of course it does. It makes you the center of attention and lends creedence to claims of martyrdom on your part.

Thank you, BenSolar. I much appreciate you saying that.

Of course you do. Regrettably, it is untrue.

He's a real nowhere man... Really.

That debate was started by you (at least in my experience): there's your credit. Sorry, bensolar, but if you'll recall, after hocus linked to the standalone post 8 of a thread, yours truly went to the whole thread where I noted that the top post contained a reference from Bill Bernstein on the impo...

hocus

You are free to deny having said what you said in earlier posts. I am free to post links to the earlier posts contradicting your denials.

yabbut when ataloss took his valuable time and provided quote after contradictory quote from you, you poisoned the FIRE well by crying 'word games'.

From the 'physician heal thyself' department: hocus said (my edits in bold ) There is an extensive record in the Post Archives showing that posters who employ the phrases like 'not ready to discuss the realities of SWRs' or 'dishonest posting practices' or 'word game posts' or... for purely tactical...

I'm not sure what was censored in my post on the other thread. Is it really true that we can't simply call statements like 'wanderer you would do the community a service by thanking me' or 'the future is different from the past but it is the same as the past' and 'bensolar, little h's and little wha...

Not hard to tell why kenm is a millionaire. Not hard to tell why I have gotten more out of kenms' guidance on the use and avoidance of filipina maids than any of the 1 million lines of BS from a certain someone we can't mention.

I suggest a healthy stash of cash (and a crash helmet) to be positioned for opportunity. Banks will be licking there wounds (not willing to lend). Cash will be king. It could be fun!

Hi Tryan. Always enjoy your take. We have thought about this. It is work. And the same sort of production line approach and LTCG. Dunno about the 1031s. Can be costly and tricky tax wise. Why not just sell and your capital gain should be in the 5% area (with $45k+- of income in retirement) with none...

I still believe the demand for dependable income-paying assets, like real estate and REITs, will increase as the boomers flee the regular salaries of the workplace and as their US-based employers desert them. It'll be a bit of a climb - I'm down almost 20% on these REITs. I do enjoy money sloshing t...
