Using Dividend Stocks to Pay for Your Coffee

What It Costs You To Be a Caffeine Addict Are you a caffeine addict like me? I don’t know about you, but my day doesn’t really start, nor am I entirely awake or focused on my tasks until I first sip on a fresh cup of coffee. Equally important, have you thought about how much money you spend on coffee on a regular basis? Over the past years, I have come to realize that spending money on coffee is something that’s inevitable for so many people. Whether you’re perking your own coffee at home, contributing to an employer led fund , or [...]

Nanny Groups Suck – Leave Ronald McDonald Alone and Just Tell you Kid No

VS. I just read a story that really angered me!  Apparently, some pain in the ass nanny group wants Ronald McDonald to retire. A coalition of health professionals, parents and corporate accountability advocates is calling for Ronald McDonald to retire as a spokesman for the nation's largest restaurant chain, saying he has too much influence on kids. **** The group will release the results at a lunchtime "retirement party" Wednesday for McDonald's Chief Happiness Officer, a 50-year veteran of the company, at the McDonald's restaurant at Chicago Avenue and State Street. Yup, you read that correctly there is actually a group out [...]

I was sitting in a seminar about Estate Planning on Friday when the speaker said something that really stuck with me, but I am not sure what to do with this lingering feeling.  So I did what anyone who owns a blog would do, I decided to write a small post about it, with the hopes that a reader out there can help me out.

Explanation of Health Care Bill in Time Line Form

I really wanted to stay out of the health care debate (obviously beyond discussing the Constitutionality of the Health Care Bill)  but I came across this really cool graphical time line of the Bill that I thought people would like. It is from a 3rd Party that I have no affiliate with, who obviously created it to get links, but whatever it is cool nonetheless: Infographic by Compare health insurance options from many different providers!

Is the Health Care Bill Constitutional?

The Country is going nuts with the recently passed health care passage.  If you have read ANY of my political posts before you could only imagine how much this bill makes me sick, literally it is a feeling of lost like the Country is taking a piss poor turn.  But beyond personal feelings I question the legality and constitutionality of this particular bill. Two of my favorite bloggers wrote up great reviews of the issue from opposing sides.  I will throw it out there right now, I do not agree with Financial Samurai, while I think Darwin sums it amazing: Darwin’s Finance – [...]
