> social security aren't complaining I know people on SS and the do in fact complain just fine. Why do you think they are not complaining? Financial advisors are pretty clear about the failings of SS, its not a secret. The political reality is that there is little they can do about it because of the young/old deadlock and the political impossibility of fixing it. > Also you never addressed why economists don't complain more about the CPI inaccuracies Thats a good test to separate actual economists from political hack keynesians. the latter are better known as bureaucrats or officials, since what they do had no scientific or mathematical validity. > macroeconomics Ah, the famous keynesian field which has never once predicted anything successfully? > calculating things like the poverty line? What good is calculating a subjective line?
> if it was really as flawed as you make it out to be why wouldn't unions and those on social security not be outraged over it's inaccuracies? Even more than the people on social security should be outraged, are the people paying into the scheme who can easily see they will receive far less return on their investment in social security taxes than nearly any other investment choice they could make. They, with any basic financial analysis, could easily see that it is not a good investment for them, but either choose not to look at it or else feel they have no power to do anything about it. With common sense, they should be in revolt and demanding social security to be shut down. Of course the older population see that as a threat, and worry that without new people paying in their meagre and declining benefit could disappear entirely. They would rather have something than nothing. Actually paying a reasonable amount of SS adjusted for real inflation is not possible; the massive redirection of those funds to government pork would not be possible, and raising rates would require massive unpopular tax increases on the young. Its a brilliant way to play the young vs the old. And since the old vote more, the program sticks around, and the beneficiaries of pork barrel projects get to reap the benefit.
Finally! Someone is going to do something about Nazi afilliatrd cartoon monkeys!! There is justice in thus world! Next we need to tackle the Anti-Semitic cereal box characters... looking at you- Captain Crunch (Formeryly SS Captain VON KRUNCHSTEIN!!)
Is he right now? I mean are x-POTUSes (POTUSI?) still considered politicians? Technically they do get SS detail and I imagine as messed up as our government is they still pull a retirement/salary. Looked it up: Son of a bitch, what a fucking scam. ['Former presidents receive a pension and other benefits when they leave office.'](https://www.thebalance.com/presidents-salary-4579867)
I've had a similar experience. The state government had been sending payments to a fraudster who had used my SS number. The state sent a lot of money to a person in a different city, with a different name. Then they realized it was fraud, and the state came after me, because I had a job and savings and the fraudster didn't. The state can and will snatch your money from you - click - just like that. I had to learn the hard way, you can't just make a phone call, talk to a reasonable person, and straighten things out. The United States government wrote my name (with some others) into a special law telling the state government to get the fuck off of my back. Only after that did things begin to go my way. I even got a nice letter from the governor (who had ignored my pleas); I wiped my ass on it. If you ever have a similar situation happen to you or to somebody you know, please remember to guide them to contact the offices of their US senators. Shit flows downhill.
Yeah, I get the hate for the rest of the list. Well CELR and GLMR are my long term holds, staked, LSS is not that bad (lossless team saved a bit of tokens in ONE bridge hack). Rest is spec/moonshots/gambles. I really think BONE will moon and I got most of it for free by providing liquidity on SS since start.
"We'll freeze your money on your exchange" is at least a good way of slowing it down. Taxing it to death sure does, too. And isn't it still part of the Infrastructure Bill that in a few years you'll be required to provide ID and SS# to buy crypto? You don't really need to extinguish 100% of the crypto market to make it disappear. You just have to make it so folks no longer believe it'll ever have much utility. Kill its growth and especially the idea that Bitcoin, especially, will be commonly held, and that'll be enough to kill it.
You said no, they are not and didn't follow up with anything to disprove what I said. I'm still waiting for your expert technical rebuttal. How about explain how mining pools work and who actually validates blocks in POW? Pools don't even control the hashrate within their pool. Individual miners find blocks. The purpose of joining a pool is to share the block reward and fee no matter which individual miner within that pool finds a block. It just lets you have a steady income instead of having a small chance of finding a block going it alone. Rich people including the largest companies in the space tried to force big blocks fork in 2017. Full node users with their $50 rasp-pi rigs rejected the change. You should do some reading on what happened then right [here](https://www.amazon.com/Blocksize-War-Control-Bitcoins-Protocol/dp/B096CLR1SS). Proof of work **SPECIFICALLY** requires work based on math so that how many coins someone owns does not give them any control or influence over others.
Exactly this. When security of blockchain depends on the coin created by itself and only people with staked coins can validate blocks, you're FUBAR when someone with enough coins wants to attack or force changes to their own benefit. Amount of coins held by someone should not give them any control or influence over protocol like it does in the fiat system. This is actually the crux of Satoshi's invention using proof of work. Proof of work separates mining and validating functions. Miners are just working class citizens. Back in 2017, Chinese miners and some of the biggest companies within the ecosystem tried to force big blocks hard fork through but got rejected by full node users. [The Blocksize War by Jonathan Bier ](https://www.amazon.com/Blocksize-War-Control-Bitcoins-Protocol/dp/B096CLR1SS) chronicles how it all went down.
Bloody bots. Another generic replier bot and a quick look at the profile history - and you can tell the reddit account was either compromised or sold. A period of absence from their usual subs, followed by the change in comment behavior and crypto subs. https://imgur.com/a/RcXdbsH SS provided as an example u/IHaventEvenGotADog - feel free to do your thing :P
If you retire early you can pull a lot of it out tax free. At retirement you convert all 401k holdings to IRA, and then in those years where you're earning no income you can convert ~40k per year from traditional to Roth and still be in the 0% tax bracket (including standard deduction). 1099 income and SS will eventually eat into the amount you can convert, but it is entirely possible for an average person to never pay any taxes on their pre-tax 401k conversions.
well actually the best way is to start to put away 300 a month starting at 20. By the time you retire you will have over a million. WHich if you put in a safe investment, even like a CD, you will earn enough a year to just live off the interest. About 60k a year if you just put it in a simple bank account, you can get that number up a bit with slightly more risky investments. This is what SS was supposed to be, but never transformed into. ANd yeah i get 300 a month is a huge amount, for min wage earners and even slightly higher. But it should be treated as very important to do. Like if its a choice between living at a slightly higher comfort level, a slightly nicer place to live at, versus worse but saving money for retirement(even when you are way too fucking young to even think about it) its always better to do the latter. if you can get a million in the bank, it doesnt matter how long you live, you will be ok. and yeah that goes for inheritors, dont fucking see a million dollars windfall as something to spend. youll go broke and have to labor for money again.(this is also why the rich complain about being cash poor so much, this wealth is busy earning them enough to live, while their wealth might seem sizeable, they dont actually want to spend it, because that would reduce their income. Its also why the rich still get loans for about everything they do.)
You're making a hopium statement with no factual grounds. The miners are working class citizens in Bitcoin. Nodes are the validators in charge of the protocol. I would invite you to read [The Blocksize War: The Battle for Control Over Bitcoin’s Protocol Rules ](https://www.amazon.com/Blocksize-War-Control-Bitcoins-Protocol/dp/B096CLR1SS) to learn what happened when a cartel of Chinese miners tried it on. But when the security of a blockchain depends on the coin created by system itself (not to mention staking centralization itself like LIDO) and only the people with large amount of staked coins can validate blocks, you're FUBAR when someone with enough coins wants to attack the chain or force changes to their benefit. With Bitcoin all you need to overpower rogue miners is $50 full node rasp-pi rig. It's amazing how the balance of power is distributed in the kind of system Satoshi built and because of the difficulty adjustment algorithm it manages to automatically scale forever according to its usage.
"a cartel of imperfect human bitcoin miners" Let me stop you right there. Miners don't decide a damn thing. Miners are working class citizens in Bitcoin. I'm once again asking you to read the book [The Blocksize War: The Battle for Control Over Bitcoin’s Protocol Rules ](https://www.amazon.com/Blocksize-War-Control-Bitcoins-Protocol/dp/B096CLR1SS) to learn what happened when a cartel of Chinese miners tried it on.
It's not swapping the Sim though. It's advertising your phone number as roaming in another country, snatching the incoming SMS and diverting it to another number. Costs ~$25 and has been used in a number of high profile hacks. It doesn't matter how secure your device is if your back end phone network is using protocols developed in the 1970s and not updated in almost 30 years. SS7 is not secure.
Someone has their CC, SS, identity stolen. In crypto theft happens because of personal irresponsibility. Ever made a bet or a deal with someone who said they already paid you? Ever received a check that bounced? Waited till after midnight or next business day to receive funds? Wtf are you talking about?
Johnny earns $4000 per month. There is no way, for example, that Johnny can sustainably afford a mortgage payment of $5000 per month, nor $4000, nor $3000... There is a limit. In Johnny's case, that limit is likely between $1K and $2K per month. Remember, Johnny has to pay Federal income tax, SS contribution, medicare, state income tax, maybe unemployment insurance. Remember, Johnny also needs money for food, utilities, transportation, etc.
If you think SS is running out, you haven't ever read any further than click bait headlines. Worst case based on current projections is that in 20-30 years SS pays out like 70% of what it's currently paying. It's not going to "run out." *However* of course folks shouldn't retire and rely on it. Relying purely on SS to retire is like the boomer of "not your keys, not your coins" but with fiat.
Many people here probably don't even know this. Coinbase and a bunch of other companies orchestrated the attack on Bitcoin which led to the blocksize wars. They desperately tried in so many underhand ways to destroy Bitcoin and promote the chinese miner fork Bitcoin cash. Ultimately full node users won and proved who truly had the power in Bitcoin. Read the book Blocksize war [here](https://www.amazon.com/Blocksize-War-Control-Bitcoins-Protocol/dp/B096CLR1SS). Brian Armstrong has always been a piece of work.
You gave irrelevant opinions, provided nothing to back you up and talked about some Jewish philosopher when that wasn't even a topic brought up. I dont care what a random has to say if they dont have anything to back it up, I might as well say theyre Nazis because I know all of them personally and they have SS uniforms at home, would have about the same relevance to reality as your posts. Gotta try harder next time.
Again, you offered nothing beyond you opinions. Those are useless. Now, if you want to talk actual probability, calculate the likelihood of all these occurring at random, all at the same time: - An SS insignia inspired logo - Using Yuga in their name - Referencing the exact philosopher writing about it outside of native cultures - One of the founders having academic interest in fiction about Nazis (thus showing they are presumably familiar with common imagery) - their videogame featuring swastikas - have been inspired by a company that *just happens* to use a Nazi slogan, with Yuga not being aware - had an event launch on Hitler's death day Don't even bother replying unless you have the answer, it won't be taken into account.
You didnt show anything. You vomited your opinion on the internet. That has absolutely no weight, especially when you are trying to argue that these people who knowingly ripped off an SS insignia just so happened to stumble upon a bunch of terms commonly used by Nazis completely randomly, coincidentally, and repeatedly. Run the math on the probability of that, then get back to me.
If the picture above is supposed to represent “nazi-ism,” I’m worried about the accusers understanding of history.. The headwear on the ape is from world war 1. Its called a “picklehaube” and was worn by German and Prussian troops. The “Stahlhelm” was the headwear of the SS in WW2. The stahlhelm is not pictured above.
The people saying that there are a lot of stretches missed the point of the video, how many coincidences before it stops being a conspiracy? Ofc the evidence wouldn't be too solid on its own, since if they truly are smart trolls why would they make it obvious, they need plausible deniability. Also I don't think the apes themselves are necessarily racist it's rather the imagery and symbolism which just seems too on the nose, such as the logo looking very similar to the SS, or the numbers that relate to Nazis, or the other various articles of clothing. Also the references and terminology which originate from 4chan and the CEO's odd reply to the criticism, way too many things off about the project, but hey that's just my take
I watched all the way up to the burn bayc planet of the apes nu-metal part, and really the best point he made was that celebrities get these for free and sign an NDA about it. The rest is just kind of reaching. Apes in this case are meant to be a depiction of degens, not so much a racist trope (at least not purposely). Using historical/war-based imagery in art is nothing new, and people shouldn't assume they're meant to be aligned philosophically. I will concede, using SS imagery for your actual logo is something they definitely should've reconsidered tho lol
Dont follow the bored apes stuff but had a quick look at the video and also the gordon goner site and I must say they really are reaching for it in many of the examples given. For example on gordons site the first pics are 3 bored apes, one with Japanese Hachimaki headband, one with a US Patrol Cap and one with the German ww1 Pickelhaube helmet. Besides those 3 apes he has also attached images of ww1 propaganda posters. Now its very obvious that he is trying to make it seem that these 3 apes are racist representations but maybe only to the layman. Now the Japanese Hachimaki headband is pretty straightforward so no need to explain that. The bored ape with the patrol cap I suspect he is mistakenly identifying that with the drawing of the ape wearing the French kepi, appears to be white, traditionally worn by the French Foreign legion and North African units. That image was published in the cover of the May 1920 issue of Kladderadatsch magazine, a Satirical German magazine and it was mocking French colonial ambitions. Then we have the ape with the Pickelhaube helmet, and he is comparing that with the famous ww1 propaganda "Destroy this mad brute!" poster. Now I know what he is trying to do here, he is equating the apes with black and brown people but for example the mad brute poster is very well known and it was depicting the Germans as uncultured warring mad brutes. During the great war all sides depicted their opponents as savage caricatures, granted many others had racist overtones too, but they treated all with the same brush. Then they go on to show a collage of various screenshots of selected peoples comments that claim the bored apes are racist images because they think that using apes mean that it represents black people. Thats just the usual cherry picking comments from random people that only support one narrative. I just skipped around with the video as I was not really interested, stuff like the claim that twitter handle SassBAYC is short of SA-Sturmabteilung and SS-Schutzstaffel is I think another reach because Sass or Sassy are words that are in common usage. At 24:01 he claims the severed ape hand is in reference to the Congo mutilations in the late 1800's, a subject I am somewhat familiar with and as far as I know I have never heard the term "ape hands" being ever used to refer to the hand choppings. Now I think its more probable that the chopped ape hand is in reference to the popular trope of the cursed monkeys paw, that grants you your wish but in return for a terrible price. Very popular in many horror stories. On closer look I noticed that that 24:23 he seems to have cropped certain paragraphs of a wiki article and after a quick search it was from the wiki on the Force Publique. If you go and read that article there is no section that mentions "ape hands", the quick check of the history tab does not show any "ape hands" either as far as I can see. It appears the video maker has just cut and pasted various different content to make it appear to fit his narrative. At 24:41 he highlights a bored ape wearing a pith helmet and next to it he displays a Belgian pith helmet, but here again he makes a big mistake or more likely deliberate error. The Belgian helmet he shows is missing the cloth band and if one does a search for "British Army Tropical Pith Helmet" you will soon notice that that whoever drew the bored ape with the pith helmet copied the British version not what the Belgian example that the video maker showed. Anyway I will stop here, am sure others will have noticed many more blatant errors, suffice to say, while its good to raise awareness, I say these people are seeing Nazis everywhere, even in places where there is none. My final say is the video maker is not being honest with presenting his "facts" and I suspect it is not due to being unaware but rather he is knowingly presenting nonfactual information.
You think this is the first time the conversation about SS running out? This has been recycled over and over again. The US does have ability to print money. But it isn’t the only way. The gross product from the US is huge. Can be a shell game
LOL! Just learning about this now? **I recently found out through a survey that the majority of American Millenials are depending on social security money post-retirement.** We have been telling y'all to stop spending all your money on avocado toast for years now!! Seriously though, every GenX kid was told this since junior high or so. Pretty sure even the year has stayed the same. There is no trust fund for SS, the politicians just spend it. My wife and I did not include SS with our retirement planning, just to be safe. We are at the later end of GenX so we'll get to see what happens to the big kids and if they get their SS money. Plan for no SS, and then you can adjust as you get older.
Social Security literally can never be “insolvent”. Ignore any articles that claim this is the case. That is NOT how SS works. When they talk about insolvency, they are thinking about current benefit levels not holding through year X. SS will essentially distribute what comes in to eligible recipients. If less comes in and there’s more eligible recipients, then everyone gets less. SS will ALWAYS have money coming in via SS taxes, so there will ALWAYS be something to distribute, just not necessarily as much as there is to distribute to everyone today.
Off the top of my head 1. the release date wasnt April 30th (hitlers bday) it was April 23rd 2. the SS logo is skull and crossbones, not just a skull. if you google image search that SS logo NONE of the immediate resultsshow the frayed logo he found to match the BAYC logo. he had to dig to an obscure version to find it What you need to do is cross check what this guy says - the only coincidence is how wrong most of his "facts" are
The government prints money for many reasons, and one of them is that if you could live on $1200/month from SS in 1980, that with printing money and inflation, but 2033 you won't even be able to make a car payment for $1200. The money loses value...
SS being insolvent has been claimed for decades. WaPo isn’t a source I value info from as well. Gov is talking about increasing payments for people. It’s not going away. They will find ways to keep it afloat. Neither political party wants to be the one that has SS fail on their watch. TLDR - SS is going to be around for a loooong time
The article and youtube video which have started this sell off are all bullshit. Dig deep enough into any internet culture and you will 'find' the links to any conspiracy you want. The closest solid lead they have is that the logo for BAYC looks somewhat similar to the nazi SS logo. Everything else? The nicknames, the hats, the puzzles are all meaningless linked because they involve monkeys (ergo monkey is derogatory for african-americans) Ironically he talks about how 4chan meme'd the 'ok hand sign' into being a alt-right symbol, but then he applies his alt-left glasses and only sees the connotations that fit his worldview TL:DR; crypto, silver and superstonk users have been calling each other apes since daydot. Ape is not a hidden derogatory term. /facepalm
> The stated amounts for SS/Medicare are overstated by 50% of current standard payroll taxes: OASDI = 6.2% of the first $147,000 Medicare HI = 1.45% Keep in mind OP said he used his live paycheck. The numbers you're quoting are the government's tax rate, not necessarily what OP's employer is withholding. For example, employers may in practice withhold 1.45% of gross wages for Medicare, but up to an additional 0.9% (equaling 2.35%) depending on filing status. Withholding mismatches from what is actually owed are the reason so many receive refund checks (or must write checks to cover shortfalls) when actually filing. So let's say OP is calculating a slightly higher percentage than what he actually gives government. First, that won't bring down the numbers significantly. He'd still be well over 50% when including the inflation. Second, OP doesn't have access to the money until he files and the government returns/refunds it. So while he may receive some of his own money back eventually, he wasn't paid any interest by anybody for the privilege of holding (possible using) it until he got it back. Additionally, with inflation trends, the longer one does without access their own money, the more inflation erodes the value. So he's still not doing so well is the enduring point.
OP wrote “of my gross income” but seemingly calculated on net income. The stated amounts for SS/Medicare are overstated by 50% of current standard payroll taxes: OASDI = 6.2% of the first $147,000 Medicare HI = 1.45% It stands to reason OP overcalculated all other amounts as well.
Ohhh boy, this is quite far fetched. The problem I have with it is that this guy went into the whole thing with convinced of something and tried to prove his convictions without looking at anything else that could disprove them, just like conspiracy theory believers. The flat earth people will tell you that you can't believe something you haven't seen with your own eyes because "they" are manipulating everyone. then you tell them about the curvature of the Earth seen from a plane, they'll tell you it's an optical illusion because all windows on every plane are curved all while wearing curved glasses themselves. He even says himself that there's an alternative explanation for all the "symbolism" but he dismisses that completely by saying that these founders are very fucking clever and did it on purpose to have "plausible deniability". Basically nothing's good enough to prove him wrong, but even the most far fetched coincidence is enough to prove his point. Of course everyone's first guess when you tell them about a white skull on a black background is the SS Totenkopf and not the pirate flag, right ? Oh, and the prussians also used the skull symbol. They don't have anything to do with racism, but they spoke german and you know who else spoke german ? Hitler and the nazis. And another clear proof of the hidden racist meaning behind BAYC ... It's also very poorly researched, for example simianization is the representation of humans with ape like features, while BAYC is actually the complete opposite : humanization, the representation of something with human features, in this case animals (apes) wearing clothes and using accessories like cigars, glasses etc and having human facial expressions. Another contradiction is him saying all these 4chan experts are degenerates who haven't seen the light of the day, yet all the founders have hadfairly normal lives, are highly educated and to top it off, at least Wylie Aronow has jewish ancestry, but that too is conveniently glanced over ...
Paycheck to paycheck isn’t an indicator of wealth…..unrealized gains is just that….money you don’t actually have, so in my scenario mom and pop had a decent job and bought a house for $49,000 a pretty nice house for 1970…..they’re retired now, they get a little from SS and a 401k, maybe even a little from a pension…..but their house is now valued at $1.1 million, so of course their property taxes are way up, they can’t live on their life insurance policy, and they don’t want to sell the house they grew old together in…..they live paycheck to paycheck on a fixed income…..unrealized wealth is just a representation of all the stuff they’ve acquired in a lifetime. It doesn’t mean they have millions in the bank. They still live paycheck to paycheck.
>Every transgression on social media? Every time you said something in anger or while drunk? Forever undeletable. And scanned by any employer or cop. Imagine forever being tainted by a "joke" with no way to ever delete it. Not people screenshotting you or anything, just publicly always available That's already the case. Internet ain't forget. >Imagine you get phished. And suddenly your social token or bank account or job credentials or health info gets moved to a wallet you don't have the keys for? Identity tokens are not meant to be traded. They will be untradeable NFT, and can be destroyed on request by the emitter party (e.g. the social security government). Basically you got your wallet stolen, you go to the cops, then the Social service security will remove the NFT and create a new one to your fresh wallet. >Or imagine you're doing distribution on a public ledger? Oooh, now I know exactly which store or warehouse has exactly what I'd like to steal. Or, I'm a competitor that's not public, and I know what to screw you over on if you have excess inventory, or if I can negative PR your item at just the right time. Technology is still researched, but ZK-proof are the key here. You store a proof on blockchain which says "I have enough stock". This evidence cannot be tempered, yet doesn't give any useful information for an attacker. This is complex technology and I'm not in the mood to show some examples, but yeah it sounds like magic and it is magic. Now, since you didn't covered the good part: Let say I build a service which require confirmation that you are US citizen and have a social security. Currently, I'm going to ask you for KYC, ask to scan some copy of your SS number, cross-check with the SS service, hoping it's not down today. In terms of development, I will need to manage a lot of cases. What if you lie and use a fake ID? What if the Social security server confirming your identity is down? Etc... With blockchain, I just check that you have the token emitted by the SS service. As simple as that. If your account gets stolen, your token is revoked. My service can listen to the revocation event and close or freeze your account, as simple as that. Note: I'm working in big software for a government dealing with billions of dollars of contracts. Interoperability between systems and services is just the number one problem we face on a daily basis.
Wut, are you that stupid or simply too stupid? Gme has one of the lowest decline in all of techs so far...most SS ppl avg in the 160-180 range, and some original believers with avg below 100, and 50 are still deep green, granted we lost some unrealized gains. Contrary to the brainwashing, Nobody there is an idiot that bought during periodic pumps above the 200, or 250. The stock usually consolidate in the 150s, 180s, and recently the low 100s where "cultists" accumulate. Go ahead compare gme to the ever so popular nvda, upst, fb, coin, docu, roku, or what have you here...BTC, ETH lolz Pathetic attempt.
IRS tax tables tell me it's 15K for a single person earning 100K assuming they took the standard deduction, and that's just the start. 6.2% SS. No 401K contributions? No HSA contributions? I have $700 worth of tax free contributions every byweekly paycheck. Also, just adding 9.29% isn't valid since the take home pay is now 79K at most, and groceries are exempt. Of course, if you properly itemized, pre the Trump tax hikes, you could come out even further ahead.
It's bleeding. Diluted EPS is lower than it was when the stores were closed. Its been down and to the right for years. Your fantasy isn't likely happening in this timeline. The premise is often flawed because they think that funds and IBs pay the margin/borrow fees retail pays to short. Pro tip, they don't. It's next to nothing. And while they are short they can sell puts against the short position and hedge against the MOASS fantasy with deep deep OTM calls with a part that put premium. Too many people got smashed during that SS that I guarantee no big money is naked on their shorts right now which means the SS is not feasible if positions are hedged.
SS: Right now, the price of ADA is still higher than it was only 18 months ago. If you bought 5 years ago, you're still sitting at 346% increase in value. When in doubt, zoom out. One ADA is still worth one ADA. Relax. Stop checking prices unless you're buying. Otherwise, come back in 18 months and see what's new.
SS: Right now, the price of ETH is still higher than it was only 18 months ago. If you bought ETH 5 years ago, you're still sitting at 299% increase in value. When in doubt, zoom out. One ETH is still worth one ETH. Relax. Stop checking prices unless you're buying. Otherwise, come back in 18 months and see what's new.
SS: Right now, the price of BTC is still higher than it was only 18 months ago. If you bought 5 years ago, you're still sitting at 752% increase in value. When in doubt, zoom out. One BTC is still worth one BTC. Relax. Stop checking prices unless you're buying. Otherwise, come back in 18 months and see what's new.
Yeah that is a huge complicating factor. Worse it doesn't really go away until you get medicare (age 65) which puts you just 7 years away from RMD on trad IRA (age 72). Even if you delay SS to the max that is age 78 so pretty soon RMD on trad IRA and SS are going to stack. Then again if that is the big problem you likely have won the game. Paying more in taxes may not be the end of the world.
Cardano people, lol, don't deny the issues, they simply see it as a part of the evolving of the network. When SS was released, they expected the clogg and used it to improve the network. If there is some kind of issue there, only people who are into ADA just to make money are all whiney and bitchy, the rest of us "Cardano people" just wait until the devs remove the problem. Example? SundaeSwap is fast as fuck today. At this moment few of the users are experiencing problem with harvesting and devs are on it. So, yes, "Cardano people" are patient and don't whine because they know Cardano is here to stay and we're glad to be the part of the process.
I’m going to embrace the hate here, but comments like yours are why I cannot stand /r/SuperStupid users. Someone says anything critical, 99% of SS users reply “short it”…. Because y’all are incapable of forming your own opinions outside of whatever shit is pushed on your subreddit. And as far as I can tell, y’all have far less understanding of cryptocurrency than you do traditional markets…. Which says a lot, considering y’all have no understanding of how the stock market works. I’m bullish on ethereum, always have been, but seeing ppl like you feeling bullish makes me so goddamn hesitant.
If in the US I’d want to know: What kind of job, salaried or contract? If contract work it might be worth a shot. Salaried would be risky. US payrolls paid in dollars come with a lot of government protection and if salaried they handle deductions for SS, taxes, insurance, and retirement. Also, how are they determining the price? Is it X dollars worth of btc or X number of btc? Is the date of price determination set, like ‘the price on X day of the month on Y exchange?
I don't have any assets in my KK any longer. I bought a Ledger and have centralized my important assets there. I thought I'd buy some Fox tokens, hold them using KK, and participate in ShapeShift but I ran into a problem of my own making and got too busy to continue the effort. I would like to use KK and SS but so far it's not able to beat Ledger, Ledger Live and MetaMask for my needs.
Literally Denmark has this exact system centralised in government and it works wonderfully. Everyone has a code-card called a NemID which works as follows: anytime you log into your bank, public inbox (an email platform for official communication witht eh public sector), the tax authorities, the job center etc you type in your SS nr and your perdonal password. Then you get a 6-digit code which corresponds to the code on a physical piece of paper (the NemID), next to the little code yoy got, you have a different code that you then type in on your browser, and voila, youre in. So one again, this is a solution looking for a problem. In this case a problem which has been solved more effectively many times over. Heres a small intro to NemID by some Americans using it for the firdt time. https://youtu.be/EK_dI-ofceQ
SS: I stumbled across this today while looking through small cap projects . Has anyone seen anything like this before . It is a yield farming project that also utilizes giving you shares of Moonshot small Caps in addition to your regular staking interest as part of the yield you get back . Threw a couple hundred at it for fun . I like the idea of this . I feel like it makes staking less boring . FYI, The Web version of the site is better . It looks like a pretty new project. It used to be called squirrel farm (NUTS) and was rebranded . In the desktop version you can see all the moonshots that you can get a piece of . Had like $12,500 Market cap so about as low as it gets in that regard . I just really liked the ideas behind it . If it’s scammy oh well then they got $200 for a cool idea IMO. Take a look and tell me your thoughts .
You are aware metal melts.. right? Lol! I am aware of those, but doesn’t help with my non-crypto docs I need to keep safe. I got a nice metal seed plate though. If anyone is going to, at least make sure to get stainless steel or titanium. What worries me is many of them are aluminum and people buy them thinking they are fine. Aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat AND melts at -1200°F.. house fires can be 1000-2000°F, but most are 1200-1500°F. There’s steel ones which will survive just about any structure fire (SS melting point is 2500-2800°F) and titanium which is over 3000°F. Losing everything to a fire is life changing and horrible, but returning to the property thinking “at least I can recover my coins and get SOMETHING back” only to find that your aluminum seed phrases are a flat round actual coin shaped chunk of aluminum would be an extra slap in the face at the end.
> we have a dumbfuck president who just opened the borders. > ***but you don’t hear me opining about it*** and telling foreigners to stay away. You literally gave your opinion about foreigners at the beginning of the sentence, when you called the president a dumbass for opening the borders. US business literary can’t find enough workers to fill positions, 50% of the businesses in my city have had help wanted signs up continually since Covid started and Trump closed the borders. Foreign workers still pay taxes, including social security taxes which they aren’t entitled to… unless they actually become citizens, you know, legally, so if anything you should thank those on work visas for helping subsidize your SS. Also, the work they do here contributes to the overall GDP, and aren’t the drain you seem to think they are. The biggest drains on the economy are a number of the deeply red states that require more federal $ than they contribute. Don’t bother responding, you’ve already outed yourself as an idiot, and have been blocked.
Inaction is what made me miss 2017-2019. First I heard btc was when it shot from $100 to $1000. Wrote it off as a bunch of tech geeks. Next I heard it went from $4000 to $19000. I laughed it off as a bubble as it went sub 10K. Now look at where we are. If I had thrown just $100 a month from 2014-2019... would be fine. So finally read the white paper and did research and now i get it. I've a spectator in these ups and downs but the btc story is clear.. programmed to go up so long as governments keep printing. Will gov'ts stop printing? Just take a look at the U.S. debt clock. Which of these politicians gonna go to Florida and say to those retirees that they don't have SS and medicare anymore? Even then you'd have to cut military budget - good luck finding a politician or fed chair that will commit career suicide.
