Ten for Tuesday, September 18, 2012

September 18, 2012

1. Interesting opinion piece: Don’t show me the money.

2. The Magnitude of the Mess We’re In.

3. Majority (barely) in U.S. still say the government is doing too much.

4. “Doesn’t hurt to ask…”

5. The Reasons Behind the ‘People Who Pay No Income Tax’.

6. Perhaps it’s worse than Romney said… (Personally, unless they are getting more than they paid in, I don’t consider people receiving social security as being “dependent on the federal government.”)

7. 3 signs Apple is topping.

8. How to save money by keeping good records.

9. Dividend contenders: 13 increases expected in the coming weeks.

10. 8 ways to save money on a college budget. (Some of these are very obvious (buy used text books).)

Finally, don’t forget about this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance, which is being hosted by FreeMoneyFinance.

  1. Re. #6: If Al steals from Bob, is Bob still a thief if he then steals the same amount or less from Carl?

    That prior Social Security recipients took the money from their children who are now on Social Security does not give the current recipients the moral right to take from their children and grandchildren.

    Why don’t we just end Social Security, and allow those now receiving it to take whatever they want from their children and grandchildren?

  2. Jack is right — the first group to receive SS benefits never paid in. That snowball has been rolling downhill (through generations) ever since.

  3. “JACK IS RIGHT”?!

    Who are you, and what did you do with BG?! 😀

  4. I’ve agreed with you in the past, but I do admit it is a rarity.
