Fox News isn't to blame

in

The Affordable Health Care Act, known as “Obamacare,” was coerced upon the American People by many lies:  naming just two: “If you like your doctor you can keep him/her.” and “If you like your insurance you can keep it.”  Many citizens have lost their health insurance and physicians.  Another lie: “Your premiums will decrease as much as $2,500 per family.” Forbes Magazine and the Manhattan Institute both disagree with this statement and say there will be a 97-99 percent increase for young men and 55-62 percent increase for young women.

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

No matter how many times you come face-to-face with it, I’m not sure if death is something anyone ever truly understands.
On Thursday afternoon, my family laid to rest my maternal grandfather. I sat in a church listening to the happy, gurgling noises of my cousin’s baby — who is more like my niece than my cousin — while my late grandfather’s wife broke down into tears. During the sermon, the pastor talked about the variety of ways that grief presents itself. Some people, he said, cry. Some get mad. Others start counting plates to make sure everyone gets their fair share.

Stopping 21st century slavery

in
Bleich, Joe C.jpg

Slavery is evil. 
It ripped our nation apart 150 years ago. In one fashion it was legally abolished with the 13th amendment. Yet vestiges remained; some know they still exist.
There is another form of slavery becoming more prevalent across our world including our state. This involves the kidnapping, drugging and forced prostitution of young people, primarily girls. Movie fans: the movie with Liam Neeson — “Taken”— is eerily realistic.

in
Conville, Bobby 2014.jpg

While it is always important to maintain a diversified portfolio, it is especially vital to remain diversified during volatile market conditions. As an investor, you should be careful not to get caught up in any panic selling and should maintain your focus on long-term goals. This point is especially key if you have already built a well-diversified portfolio. If you are concerned about any particular securities, it may be better to discuss these with your financial advisor before cashing out.

Don’t just fear — focus

in
Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: I have always tried to teach my children not to be afraid, to not back down. I recently talked my youngest (who is in his 20s) into not taking all his money out of his retirement plan just because he thought everything was going to you know where. What’s the best way to tell someone to not be afraid of the financial markets?
Answer: I would never intentionally teach my children to not be afraid.
