TV service in Montello
The reviews are pretty mixed though:
I'd definitely give you the nod for "wiser". When we were growing up we had no cell phones, no cable tv, no internet and yet we survived.
It doesnt take a big salary or a jackpot from the govenment or a inheritance.
The point is, you can give your money to billionaires by staying addicted to their propaganda or you can finance a better lifestyle for yourself.
Wowee! All a person has to do to retire at 52 is invest the $1200 a year cable tv costs for 30 years?!
Everyone will be doing it now!
Hey...wait a minute...even if you invested $30K up front, and it doubled every seven, you're still only looking at ~$500K.
And a taxed $500K at that as you can't grab retirement fund money at 52....so you'd have to live on that $500K thirteen years till retirement age....and in ten years it would be gone at a modest $50K a year lifestyle even if it wasn't taxed....
I'd get the Directv and invest in your 401K. 99.999% of people aren't investing cable tv change and retiring at 52. (but kudos to you for hitting the jackpot river_chaser!)
