I hope you learned something from this exchange.
Ok, so if one is not an expert then by obvious logic one must be "inexpert". Correct?

If that is indeed the case your initial use of "inexpert" is odd. It seemed to be meant to describe those of opposing views. Sort of a derogatory jab if you will. Is that what you meant?

You've since made posts which seem to hedge on your own perceived expertness. So are you "inexpert" on the related discussion? If so did you inadvertently take a crack at yourself?

Maybe my perception of your use of "inexpert" is fouled up.

Is this the post you considered the right answer the "first time"?

You are incorrect.
a) Definition of an expert is "a person with a high degree of skill in or knowledge of a certain subject."
b) There are degrees of expertise, there's also diversity in expertise in particular field or subject matter.
c) You can be an expert and yet be an inexpert next to someone with more expertise.

In conclusion "it's easy to trap the inexpert." This is not about opposing views but merely knowing what you're talking about before entering the public square.

My first answer was perfectly reasonable answer to the question "insinuating that you are the expert right?"

Certainly not. It may have been a reasonable response but an answer to a pointed question it was not. It provided no explanation whatsoever. But now we're quibbling.

I'm impressed, saden. You and me should grab a beer sometime and pull chairs out from under old ladies when they're trying to sit down.
Point well taken.............

Your point about SS being stolen is right, but part of saden's point is also correct. The difference in our portfolio's is partially because the funds/economy are down, but also keep in mind the guys running our 401Ks and the mutual funds they invest in are often colluding together in a major way. Put the 401K money in this fund to help me get my bonus, then I'll skim you a percentage here, percentage there, bonus $$$ off the top of contributions, plus the fact that we don't have direct control of our 401Ks to move money out quickly when there is a drastic market turn. By the time we can react, it's too late.

I'm done allowing others control over my $$$. I'm putting the minimum required in my 401K (my corp match isn't very good). Once the economy turns a bit, my savings will be going into a self-directed IRA, or similar vehicle that I can control as necessary, or into expanding my business.

Putting money into one fund or the other usually does not change a persons bonus structure as they get paid by the company based on the ammount not the fund family. For example. I work for campany ABC and I sell a 401 plan to some company my pay is based on the dollar amount not the fund the money is placed. I would also say that 99.99% of the people who sell the funds have never met anyone who works or run these fund families. Take a company like INK they have hundreds a fund families which range in different risk and its up to the writer or broker to decide which risk tollerence their client matches then have the customer pick a fund within the risk. If I'm correct with your 401 you should have at some point where you picked the funds and sat down with someone to do this. I had a series 6 and 63 lic to sell mutural funds but found my time better spent selling property and casualty and traditional life products so I let that lic. go a few years back.

If you pull the money out of your 401 and do not put it back into another type of investment (not a business) you may have some penalties and tax issues.

Great post Mr. Baugh ! I actually roled my Roth IRA into a brokerage account , it was the best move I have ever made as far as personal finance ! With CNBC TV and some of the Internet sites , like Zach's and Seekingalpha.com , I have been able do make some nice gains since March. The great thing about having control over your IRA , you can almost guarantee some gains ,,,, buying stocks that pay nice dividends the day before the ex-dividend date Make Ex-Dividends Work For You . Thus getting some free money < and no taxation on IRA's > !

Did you just call me reasonable?...that's a first.

Happy 4th Saden . Conservatives feel " mad & cad " ,,,, like Liberals werent the last 8 years ? The truth is , 25 years from now , it will be liberal democrats that will suffer the most from Obama/Pelosi policies . Lawyers , IT technichans and dem's with job skills to work in high paying jobs will do fine < as do people along all political lines > , but the lib's who always expect the Gov't to " give " them something will be left with very little ,,, no such thing as a free lunch . I happen to be happy at the moment , I invested some $ in stem cell com and solar stocks after the election and have made some damn nice returns . Happy 4th skins fans !
