I was good at those in Jr High.

Universal life is stupid and Variable is only for a certain type of goal. The kind I'm referring to is the "conservative"kind the poster above mentioned. Your risk is in the company itself and not directly tied to the market. It's designed to be the part of your portfolio that hits a lot of singles (Ichiro Suzuki made a killing in the MLB doing that). Whoever sold it to the poster above that didn't like it didn't educate him on why he should have it or what purpose it serves in a financial plan. I recommend reading "Financial Independence in the 21st Century." I have a lot of smart clients that put a lot off money every year into these as well as other investments. They were really thanking me in 2009.

You can access it tax free. You would have to work hard top get taxed on it.

It's where the banks park your money anyhow and keep the interest rate they make. Pros are accessibility (Within 48 hours), guaranteed to not go backwards and still has a medium long term rate of return. A lot of people don't like it, but it's because they don't know it very well. Corporations and banks stash billions of dollars in these places.

It's like a 401(k) plan, but for high income earners.
|9 weeks 3 days ago||I'm wondering if this scenario has been in the works||
since the late summer. As the season started I think that some people realized how bad our department had gotten and the product on the field sped up the process of needing to get a new athletic director to make a good run at Harbaugh. My question would be how much the big donors were in Schlissel's ear to find a new athletic director to go hard after Harbaugh?
To Schlissel's credit, he listened well when he did not understand our infatuation with athletics

Blame the idiot that put it there.

THE Jon Horford?
|16 weeks 4 days ago||I don't get it.||
Can someone please explain?
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Here's my question||
It doesn't look like our offense has really changed much from last year, so

But have come to realize that no matter how much talent this team has, Hoke's staff does not have the ability to develop them or get them motivated to play consistently. I keep expecting them to step up every week, but they just don't. I was Hoke's biggest supporter for the longest time, but even he knows he's done. Watch the interaction with Dantonio at the end... He knows
|18 weeks 4 days ago||I don't think the team||
Likes Hoke as much as you think. See the letter to players a few weeks back and there was no mention of Hoke or any coach. I've heard rumors (granted, just that) that some of their guys are tired off getting hurt and losing so much. At some point even a player realizes something is wrong. I think the evidence for that is in their lackluster attitude.

Remember that like it was yesterday. I miss those days of hope.

|18 weeks 5 days ago||Great points||
This is very true about Michigan. My question is whether the powers that be understand this situation and also get that the "Michigan Man" meme hasn't worked. I get the feeling they still have their heads up their...
|18 weeks 5 days ago||Yeah I saw that interaction||
And wondered what that was about. Maybe Hoke telling him it wasn't nice?
|18 weeks 5 days ago||With these kinds of performance as the norm||
Why wouldn't we want to fire Hoke now? Got to be better than carrying him through the season.

We also saw how offenses suck. One is less painful than the other.
|20 weeks 6 hours ago||I played basketball in||
I played basketball in college(small school no one has ever heard of) and I played much betterin games than practice. I practiced hard every day, but there was just something about hanged that brought my emotion out. My coaches thought I was crazed lunatic during games. My percentages were definitely higher than practice, so I understand that some people play better in games than they do in practice.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||My brother knows an OL's dad pretty well||
He said Hoke is too stubborn about manball and punishes the team with a hard practice in pads on Sundays if they don't play well. He also said the players are losing interest in following him. Take it for what it's worth, but it seems Hoke's days are numbered.

Number 5 on Brian's list of things Brandon has done right. He may have screwed a lot of things up and this doesn't wipe those away. But what a great move to get the team sent off on the right foot. I can't imagine how this made the guys feel.
|22 weeks 1 day ago||Possibility?||
I saw one of the mods' (Seth??) Interview of Todd Howard. In it he lavished high praise on Brady Hoke. What are the chances that just Brandon is gone after this year and Hoke remains given all the support he had from former players? Also, what do you think the chances are that Brandon has too much input into what Brady does? It's the only logical reason I have that he hasn't turned Michigan around after doing so with two other mediocre programs.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||That's interesting||
So did Hoke and Nussmeier get into it or was that made up as well?
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Serious question||
Is it at all possible that Hoke is being railroaded by Brandon and thus made to look worse than he actually is? Could he just be following Brandon's lead (Walking into a presser without correct information) because he has blind loyalty? Maybe I just fell for Hoke's persona of a family guy through his tenure here. This is just ridiculous.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Major problem||
Have we considered how this is going to affect recruiting? It's bad enough that parents and future athletes have been inundated with this the last couple of days, but I'm sure other coaches will use it to negatively recruit against us. This will get worse before it gets better.

Is probably thing the media for all the attention his "Brand" if getting attention.
|22 weeks 4 days ago||Anyone else...||
Think this will cause more drama than it fixes?

who it was talking to Morris on the sideline right after he was pulled. Was it a trainer and was he testing him for concussion symptoms?
