Is Trump undermining the GA runoff GOP candidates?

am I hearing this right? He's pissed so wants his minions to write in his name instead? This is his revenge against, whom? Dear God, if so this is great.

What if Trump won us GA?

opinions on s&p index fund

I'm 55 planning on retiring at 62, hoping the age to qualify for Medicare will be lowered to 60 ( fingers crossed). I've been investing in a vanguard index fund about 20 years. I'm a modest investor, hoping to enjoy social Security, a small pension, small annuity, and beneficiary to my SO's small pension. My question is: my 500 index is just regular- I pay yearly taxes on dividends. When I get closer to retirement, is there some type of account I can move the money into to protect it and get a small amount each month?

I guess I could sell it, but I'll probably lose some amount of it.

Has anyone retired with an index fund and how did it benefit you in your retirement?

Giving Trump credit for a vaccination is like

giving credit for saving your life to the arsonist who set your house on fire.

"Jesus is my Lord, Trump is my President"

I saw this bumpersticker on the back of a car in the Lidl parking lot. And it really depressed me. It crystallized my fear that Joe and Kamala's Presidency may be compromised by the 77 million pro-Trump conspiracy theorists we are facing off in this divided country.

Nicholle Wallace just called Rudy a legal visionary

she's being very sarcastically funny about the whole sad Rudy's humiliating defeats.

republic of Ireland excited about Biden/Harris admin

Biden's family from Ballina. Hoping for a warmer relationship with the WH. Biden/Harris signs all over Ballina.

The most-Irish presidency since JFK.

I'm weird. TV interviewees' living quarters fascinate me

Steve Schmidt has a lavish, luxurious kitchen. Beto O'Rourke has a modest kitchen with an ironing board in the background.
Jonathan Lemire has interesting framed silhouettes on the wall behind him. I just love seeing glimpses into talking heads' living spaces.

I love seeing the art and books they are reading in their homes or offices. Michael Bechlouss (sp?) has a regal library with a grand fireplace.

Each one is so unique.

About XanaDUer2

I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!
